The tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.
The unnamable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin
of all particular things.
Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.
Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
This source is called darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding.
Tao Te Ching v1
EVERY EXPERIENCE IS MY TEACHER. I OPEN MYSELF TO LEARNING.
At times I may forget who I am. I may forget I have immediate access to Divine Intelligence or that I am one with Divine Love. Perhaps I feel off center or frustrated in those moments, yet this is simply part of my human experience.
Each time I forget who I am, I embrace the opportunity to remember. I open my heart and mind and listen to the teeming wisdom of the Universe. I may be reminded of my divine nature through a prayerful pause or a conversation with a wise friend. What matters most is that I remain open and teachable.
I welcome my life experiences as continuous opportunities to remember: I am never separate from the Kingdom of God.
For wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Proverbs 2:10
If I could realize but this today, salvation would be reached for all the world. This the decision not to be insane, and to accept myself as God Himself, my Father and my Source, created me. This the determination not to be asleep in dreams of death, while truth remains forever living in the joy of love. And this the choice to recognize the Self Whom God created as the Son He loves, and Who remains my one Identity.
Father, Your Name is Love and so is mine. Such is the truth. And can the truth be changed by merely giving it another name? The name of fear is simply a mistake. Let me not be afraid of truth today.

Your Greater Self
When the will to become Christlike grows strong in the heart, it causes an opening in the consciousness for the greater self to descend into the physical body. You think that your physical body is you, but it is only an infinitesimal part of you if you would contact your true self, go into a place of quiet to commune with your Creator in your heart. Then you will rise in consciousness. That great light to which you rise, is, you will find, the divine man – you, yourself, your own divinity, the real you. By opening your consciousness to this divine self your whole vibrations will be quickened and your body will be purified.
