Forcing Issues

Knows How To YieldWhoever 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

Worship GodAffirmation
I affirm and give thanks for the goodness of God in my life.
Affirmations focus my thoughts in a positive way. They train my mind to envision positive outcomes. As I use affirmations, I create an inner experience that manifests in the outer. I envision good coming to me and through me, and I am strengthened and empowered.
I create affirmations based on what is important to me. If I feel less than healthy, I affirm: I am strong and whole through the power of God’s healing love. If I desire greater abundance, I declare: The prospering power of God is at work in my life. In the midst of a challenge, I repeat: I am peaceful and calm.
As I create and use affirmations, I manifest perfect health, wisdom, and abundance.
My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.—Psalm 49:3

I Will There Be Light 2For morning and evening review:
I am one Self, united with my Creator.
Serenity and perfect peace are mine, because I am one Self,
completely whole, at one with all creation and with God.
Salvation comes from my one Self.
From my one Self, Whose knowledge still remains within my mind,
I see God’s perfect plan for my salvation perfectly fulfilled.
On the hour:
I am one Self, united with my Creator.
On the half hour:
Salvation comes from my one Self.

When Love Possesses Your Heart. . . Is Patient, Trusting In God’s Goodness And His Perfect Plan
The Work Of God
All is a question of submission and surrender, of taking life steadily, tranquilly. This does not mean lack of effort, but effort of the right kind, continual effort to let the Christ Light take possession of your emotions, of your thinking, and your actions. It means standing on one side and saying, ‘Only God is great. I am nothing. All the good which has been accomplished in my life is the work of God.’
