If you overesteem great men,
people become powerless.
If you overvalue possessions,
people begin to steal.
The Master leads
by emptying people’s minds
and filling their cores,
by weakening their ambition
and toughening their resolve.
He helps people lose everything
they know, everything they desire,
and creates confusion
in those who think that they know.
and everything will fall into place.
Tao Te Ching v3
I AM MADE OF GOD-SUBSTANCE. MY DESTINY IS ALWAYS GOOD.
I am a Divine Creation, made of Love and Life. In the past, I may have identified myself with illness, lack, negativity, or hopelessness, but today I decide to let go of that false identity and embrace my True Self—I am Intelligence. I am Power. I am Love. I am Light.
I take responsibility for my past, with compassion rather than condemnation. I remember that I am made of God-substance and my destiny is always positive and good.
Unity cofounder Myrtle Fillmore healed herself by dis-identifying from illness and realizing her Truth. She affirmed: I am a child of God. Like Myrtle, I am patient in my process of realization and growth. In so doing, I welcome my divine inheritance—all the riches of health and well-being.
We are all the work of your hand. Isaiah 64:8
Loss is not loss when properly perceived. Pain is impossible. There is no grief with any cause at all. And suffering of any kind is nothing but a dream. This is the truth, at first to be but said and then repeated many times; and next to be accepted as but partly true, with many reservations. Then to be considered seriously more and more, and finally accepted as the truth. I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt. And I would go beyond these words today, and past all reservations, and arrive at full acceptance of the truth in them.
Father, what You have given cannot hurt, so grief and pain must be impossible. Let me not fail to trust in You today, accepting but the joyous as Your gifts; accepting but the joyous as the truth.

Look To The Star
When you are in the shadows, or you feel that the shadows are near, remember to look up, to visualize the blazing Star above you in the spirit spheres, and to feel its strength, its steadiness, its radiance, pouring into your heart. Go forward in confidence and in full consciousness of the light of this Star shining upon you.
