My teachings are easy to understand
and easy to put into practice.
Yet your intellect will never grasp them,
and if you try to practice them, you’ll fail.
My teachings are older than the world.
How can you grasp their meaning?
If you want to know me,
look inside your heart.
Tao Te Ching v70
God is my ever-present source of hope.
God is with me through the stormy times in life. God is like the sun that shines even on a rainy day—it is merely hidden behind the clouds. In troubled times, my thoughts may turn cloudy with doubt and fear. If I feel separated from God, my hope may begin to fade.
At such times, I turn within. I rest in quiet prayer and meditation. I gently release any sense of separation. I affirm that God is my ever-present source of hope. Sitting in the Silence, I hear the still, small voice within. It whispers, “God is in the rain.” This truth washes over me and cleanses me of fear.
The renewing light of God shines through me like the rays of the sun. Spiritual light radiates from within, and my hope is restored.
Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you. Psalm 33:22
Judgment and love are opposites. From one
Come all the sorrows of the world. But from
The other comes the peace of God Himself.
Forgiveness looks on sinlessness alone, and judges not. Through this I come to You. Judgment will bind my eyes and make me blind. Yet love, reflected in forgiveness here, reminds me You have given me a way to find Your peace again. I am redeemed when I elect to follow in this way. You have not left me comfortless. I have within me both the memory of You, and One Who leads me to it. Father, I would hear Your Voice and find Your peace today. For I would love my own Identity, and find in It the memory of You.

The Presence Of Christ
At all times keep in your heart the thought of the presence of Christ; remember His ever peacefulness and calm amidst the turmoil of worldliness. You who are His disciple must ever seek to find the place of quietude and sweetness in the midst of the crowd. It is easy in solitude to be close to Him, but you must learn to become aware of your Master, despite the crowding of the multitude.
