Act Without Expectation

Archer 2As it acts in the world, the Tao
is like the bending of a bow.
The top is bent downward;
the bottom is bent up.
It adjusts excess and deficiency
so that there is perfect balance.
It takes from what is too much
and give to what isn’t enough.
Those who try to control,
who use force to protect their power,
go against the direction of the Tao.
They take from those who don’t have enough
and give to those who have far too much.
The Master can keep giving
because there is no end to her wealth.
She acts without expectation,
succeeds without taking credit,
and doesn’t think that she is better
than anyone else.
Tao Te Ching v77

Not Knowing is True KnowledgeMy Life
I create a blissful life.
Life is the power of God at work, constantly flowing in the present moment. It is invigorating and subtle, strong and vulnerable. Divine Intelligence created all I see in the physical world, including me. With my mind and heart, I have the power to connect with Spirit and cocreate a blissful life.
I start by expressing gratitude for my existence. I ask for the right guidance, and write down the dreams of my heart. I plan what I need to accomplish my desires—an outline to start a business or an application for school.
I follow God’s direction in each step and express gratitude for my life as it unfolds. All things work together to support me. When I cocreate my life with Spirit, what I do blesses the world, and I live in bliss.
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

True SelfGod’s answer is some form of peace. All pain
Is healed; all misery replaced with joy.
All prison doors are opened. And all sin
Is understood as merely a mistake.
Father, today we will forgive Your world, and let creation be Your Own. We have misunderstood all things. But we have not made sinners of the holy Sons of God. What You created sinless so abides forever and forever. Such are we. And we rejoice to learn that we have made mistakes which have no real effects on us. Sin is impossible, and on this fact forgiveness rests upon a certain base more solid than the shadow world we see. Help us forgive, for we would be redeemed. Help us forgive, for we would be at peace.

As you surrender your will to God, and have faith and confidence in the love of God, so will that love be continually demonstrated to you and will work out in your lives. If you live in accordance with spiritual law you will harm no man and no man can harm you.
