The ancient Masters were profound and subtle.
Their wisdom was unfathomable.
There is no way to describe it;
all we can describe is their appearance.
They were careful
as someone crossing an iced-over stream.
Alert as a warrior in enemy territory.
Courteous as a guest.
Fluid as melting ice.
Shapeable as a block of wood.
Receptive as a valley.
Clear as a glass of water.
Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving
till the right action arises by itself?
The Master doesn’t seek fulfillment.
Not seeking, not expecting,
she is present, and can welcome all things.
Tao Te Ching v15
I GIVE AND RECEIVE WITH EASE AND GRACE.
When I am in the divine flow of prosperity, I give and receive with ease and grace. Nothing causes me to withhold my gifts, whether they be financial, emotional, or simply helpful. As I feel led to give, I do so freely. I experience the joy of serving others with generosity.
Equally important to the experience of prosperity is receiving graciously. When someone gives me a present, a smile, an offer for help, or a listening ear, I am fully present to receive the gift. I give the giver my full attention and express genuine gratitude for their thoughtfulness.
I practice the prosperity principle of circulation. As I give, I receive; and as I receive, I give. I am blessed.
Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above. James 1:17
The Holy Spirit needs my voice today, that all the world may listen to Your Voice, and hear Your Word through me. I am resolved to let You speak through me, for I would use no words but Yours, and have no thoughts which are apart from Yours, for only Yours are true. I would be savior to the world I made. For having damned it I would set it free, that I may find escape, and hear the Word Your holy Voice will speak to me today.
We teach today what we would learn, and that alone. And so our learning goal becomes an unconflicted one, and possible of easy reach and quick accomplishment. How gladly does the Holy Spirit come to rescue us from hell, when we allow His teaching to persuade the world, through us, to seek and find the easy path to God.

Blessed Are The Meek
Trust in God and have faith. If you know you have been rebellious, ask humbly for forgiveness, and then be kind and loving. Remember that this is man’s only freewill choice – not whether he shall go this way or that way, but whether he shall on the one hand accept his experiences with love and humility, or whether he will be rebellious and angry, and full of tortuous emotion. See to grow to Christ-manhood.
