Crossed Wires?

Be Still and ListenReturn is the movement of the Tao.
Yielding is the way of the Tao.
All things are born of being.
Being is born of non-being.
Tao Te Ching v40

I care for myself and feel at peace.
Being there for others is an important part of my life. But, how often do I take time to care for myself? In the busyness of life, the person I may be neglecting is me.
Jesus knew the importance of caring for oneself. He advised us to take time to rest and pray. Prayer is beneficial on a spiritual, physical, and mental level. In prayer, I pause, relax, and breathe deeply. I let go of doing for others and embrace the peace of being with God. In these precious moments, I feel renewed and empowered.
My body and mind are vehicles to express Spirit in the world. Thus, I make self-care a top priority. I commit to resting, relaxing, and taking time to pray. As I care for myself, I am present to God.
My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.—Exodus 33:14

I Am One With GodI am blessed as a Son of God.
Today we will begin to assert some of the happy things to which you are entitled, being what you are. No long practice periods are required today, but very frequent short ones are necessary. Once every ten minutes would be highly desirable, and you are urged to attempt this schedule and to adhere to it whenever possible. If you forget, try again. If there are long interruptions, try again. Whenever you remember, try again.
You need not close your eyes for the exercise periods, although you will probably find it more helpful if you do. However, you may be in a number of situations during the day when closing your eyes would not be feasible. Do not miss a practice period because of this. You can practice quite well under any circumstances, if you really want to.
Today’s exercises take little time and no effort. Repeat the idea for today, and then add several of the attributes you associate with being a Son of God, applying them to yourself. One practice period might, for example, consist of the following:
I am blessed as a Son of God.
I am happy, peaceful, loving and contented.
Another might take this form:
I am blessed as a Son of God.
I am calm, quiet, assured and confident.
If only a brief period is available, merely telling yourself that you are blessed as a Son of God will do.

Meaningless. . . Is Calm, Quiet And Steady
Let Nothing Disturb Thee
In your daily life you can, by an effort of the Will of God within you, instantly attain, under any conditions, tranquility of mind. Whatever the conditions, you can still the storm, and know tranquility. You long to become aware of a life which is free, which is holy, happy, healthy and joyous, in which you can render service and see the Land of Light. We give you pointers . . . First, tranquility of spirit. Let nothing disturb you, all the fine threads of color and light attached to your soul from the Source of your life become tangled and jangled – very truth you crossed the wires. Then you wonder why things are so difficult. Don’t cross the wires. Keep your line of contact clear. Be tranquil and serene. A Master is never perturbed.
