Mystery and Manifestations

Mystery and ManifestationsThe Tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.
The unnameable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin
of all particular things.
Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.
Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
This source is called darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding.
Tao Te Ching v1

Brotherly LovePraise
I praise others and am blessed in return.
Children shine when they are praised by parents, teachers, and loved ones. They beam with pride when they are told they have done well, or when they are recognized for their talents. Although I am now an adult, I react in the same way when I am praised—I feel a sense of pride when others acknowledge my skills.
I can give that satisfaction to others by praising them, so they, too, feel the glow of accomplishment and appreciation. Today I make a conscious effort to praise others. I point out their strengths and recognize their abilities. We all enjoy being acknowledged for our uniqueness and for the gifts we bring to the world. Today I appreciate others, remembering what a joy it is to be praised!
Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous. Praise befits the upright.—Psalm 33:1

Center of the Circle 4This holy instant would I give to You.
Be You in charge. For I would follow You,
Certain that Your direction gives me peace.
And if I need a word to help me, He will give it to me. If I need a thought, that will He also give. And if I need but stillness and a tranquil, open mind, these are the gifts I will receive of Him. He is in charge by my request. And He will hear and answer me, because He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son.
