The gentlest thing in the world
overcomes the hardest thing in the world.
That which has no substance
enters where there is no space.
This shows the value of non-action.
Teaching without words,
performing without actions:
that is the Master’s way.
Tao Te Ching v43
As I live in peace, I bring peace to others.
When I put God first in my life, I know only peace. When the unconditional love of God fills my thoughts, it leaves no space for separation or judgment. When I see others through the eyes of peace and love, I contribute to world peace.
If discord arises within or around me, I pray to reconnect with the Truth: I live in the peace and love of God. This right thinking illumines my thoughts and prevails over disharmony.
I begin my day by thanking God for the peace in me. Before I go to sleep, I acknowledge that peace also lies within everyone on earth. I affirm: Our minds and hearts are together in peace, and world peace prevails.
The effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust. Isaiah 32:17
All things I think I see reflect ideas.
This is salvation’s keynote: What I see reflects a process in my mind, which starts with my idea of what I want. From there, the mind makes up an image of the thing the mind desires, judges valuable, and therefore seeks to find. These images are then projected outward, looked upon, esteemed as real and guarded as one’s own. From insane wishes comes an insane world. From judgment comes a world condemned. And from forgiving thoughts a gentle world comes forth, with mercy for the holy Son of God, to offer him a kindly home where he can rest a while before he journeys on, and help his brothers walk ahead with him, and find the way to Heaven and to God.
Our Father, Your ideas reflect the truth, and mine apart from Yours but make up dreams. Let me behold what only Yours reflect, for Yours and Yours alone establish truth.

If everything goes wrong, just laugh! Just let it have its fling, let it go; but keep your vision upon God, and know that all will come right. All will come right – that is the truth!
