In pursuit of knowledge,
every day something is added.
In the practice of the Tao,
every day something is dropped.
Less and less do you need to force things,
until finally you arrive at non-action.
When nothing is done,
nothing is left undone.
True mastery can be gained
by letting things go their own way.
It can’t be gained by interfering.
Tao Te Ching v48
As I live in harmony, I am an agent for peace.
I am in harmony with Spirit in mind, body, and soul. As I experience wholeness and express it in my unique way, I become an agent for peace in the world.
Spirit is the essence of my being, the I Am expressing individually as me. My body is the vehicle to carry Spirit into the world. As I align myself with Christ within, thoughts of wholeness fill my mind, my body experiences balance, and I feel aliveness in my soul. If I experience disharmony or disease, I pause to recenter my thoughts and focus on Spirit.
In harmony with God, I affect my outer environment positively. Aligned with Divine Love—in mind, body, and soul—I speak and act in the world from the peaceful, loving center of my being.
You also are built together spiritually into a dwelling place for God. Ephesians 2:22
I have already chosen what You will.
Father, I thought I wandered from Your Will, defied it, broke its laws, and interposed a second will more powerful than Yours. Yet what I am in truth is but Your Will, extended and extending. This am I, and this will never change. As You are One, so am I one with You. And this I chose in my creation, where my will became forever one with Yours. That choice was made for all eternity. It cannot change, and be in opposition to itself. Father, my will is Yours. And I am safe, untroubled and serene, in endless joy, because it is Your Will that it be so.
Today we will accept our union with each other and our Source. We have no will apart from His, and all of us are one because His Will is shared by all of us. Through it we recognize that we are one. Through it we find our way at last to God.

. . . Is Patient, Trusting In God’s Goodness And His Perfect Plan
It is easy, on looking back, when you know how things worked out, for you to say, ‘How could I doubt?’ But it is now, while the working out is in progress, that you have to give your confidence to the divine Wisdom guiding your life. When you have experienced, when you have tasted the fruits spread on the heavenly table, you will see that nothing could have been altered. If you had your will, you would create great confusion and suffering for yourself, but God in His compassion protects you.
