Governing a large country
is like frying a small fish.
You spoil it with too much poking.
Center your country in the Tao
and evil will have no power.
Not that it isn’t there,
but you’ll be able to step out of its way.
Give evil nothing to oppose
and it will disappear by itself.
Tao Te Ching v60
I greet all people with friendly hospitality.
This holiday season may give me opportunities to welcome others into my home, workplace, or church. Whether I host friends or people I don’t know, I greet each one with heartfelt hospitality. Hospitality is my gift. And as I give, I receive.
I demonstrate hospitality by considering the needs and wishes of others. I delight in making them feel right at home. I graciously offer my care and kindness as an expression of the love of God in me. Gratitude fills my heart as I serve and appreciate others. I acknowledge how much they have blessed me, and I let them know how I feel. My hospitality connects me with others, and I show them how special they are.
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2
I let forgiveness rest upon all things,
For thus forgiveness will be given me.
I thank You, Father, for Your plan to save me from the hell I made. It is not real. And You have given me the means to prove its unreality to me. The key is in my hand, and I have reached the door beyond which lies the end of dreams. I stand before the gate of Heaven, wondering if I should enter in and be at home. Let me not wait again today. Let me forgive all things, and let creation be as You would have it be and as it is. Let me remember that I am Your Son, and opening the door at last, forget illusions in the blazing light of truth, as memory of You returns to me.
Brother, forgive me now. I come to you to take you home with me. And as we go, the world goes with us on our way to God.

The Way To Pray
The way to pray is to put yourself into complete attunement with the spirit of love. Be in it, live in it. Think not of yourself and of your earthly need, but of God. Of yourself you are nothing; but when you dwell in the center of the Star, or that heavenly Light, you become great because you are then consciously with God and God is with you; and all things work together for good when you are with good or with God.
