Look Within

Inner VisionWhoever relies on the Tao in governing men
doesn’t try to force issues
or defeat enemies by force of arms.
For every force there is a counterforce.
Violence, even well intentioned,
always rebounds upon oneself.
The Master does his job
and then stops.
He understands that the universe
is forever out of control,
and that trying to dominate events
goes against the current of the Tao.
Because he believes in himself,
he doesn’t try to convince others.
Because he is content with himself,
he doesn’t need others’ approval.
Because he accepts himself,
the whole world accepts him.
Tao Te Ching v30

Inward BeautyLet Go, Let God
I am healthy, wise, at peace, and open to my good.
Walking through the gently falling snow, I pause to look closely at a snowflake. In the beauty of its intricate pattern, I see the love and creativity of God. A drop of moisture was released and transformed when the right conditions were present to form a snowflake.
I am shaped and patterned by the presence of God in me. I trust Spirit in me to create the right conditions and transform my life. As I do, I trust in what unfolds. What has fulfilled its purpose in my life will pass, and the new will come. I open myself to healing, guidance, and prosperity. I trust that conditions are right for my highest good to unfold. When I trust in God, I am continually transformed. I am healthy, wise, at peace, and ready for even greater good.
For I will restore health to you.—Jeremiah 30:17

I Am As God Created Me 4God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.
The idea for today is the springboard for vision. From this idea will the world open up before you, and you will look upon it and see in it what you have never seen before. Nor will what you saw before be even faintly visible to you.
Today we are trying to use a new kind of “projection.” We are not attempting to get rid of what we do not like by seeing it outside. Instead, we are trying to see in the world what is in our minds, and what we want to recognize is there. Thus, we are trying to join with what we see, rather than keeping it apart from us. That is the fundamental difference between vision and the way you see.
Today’s idea should be applied as often as possible throughout the day. Whenever you have a moment or so, repeat it to yourself slowly, looking about you, and trying to realize that the idea applies to everything you do see now, or could see now if it were within the range of your sight.
Real vision is not limited to concepts such as “near” and “far.” To help you begin to get used to this idea, try to think of things beyond your present range as well as those you can actually see, as you apply today’s idea.
Real vision is not only unlimited by space and distance, but it does not depend on the body’s eyes at all. The mind is its only source. To aid in helping you to become more accustomed to this idea as well, devote several practice periods to applying today’s idea with your eyes closed, using whatever subjects come to mind, and looking within rather than without. Today’s idea applies equally to both.
