Learning Not To Know

Joy 2The ancient Masters
didn’t try to educate the people,
but kindly taught them to not-know.
When they think that they know the answers,
people are difficult to guide.
When they know that they don’t know,
people can find their own way.
If you want to learn how to govern,
avoid being clever or rich.
The simplest pattern is the clearest.
Content with an ordinary life,
you can show all people the way
back to their own true nature.
Tao Te Ching v65

Thoughts 3Stillness
In the stillness, I find peace and satisfaction.
Today I make time to be still and allow God to speak to the desires of my heart. I let go of any anxious searching or forcing solutions, and open myself to Spirit.
I relax and focus on the rhythmic flow of my breath. The chatter in my mind quiets down and I ease into my connection with God. As I let go of all worries, I feel the strength of my steadfast faith. I take another deep breath and follow it further into the chapel of my own heart. Here, I find stillness and rest in the Silence.
The love of God fills me with peace and satisfaction. I am calm and serene. All my needs are met and I am complete. In the peace of the stillness, I am deeply satisfied.
He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm.—Mark 4:39

Power of ThoughtMy mind holds only what I think with God.
I will accept Atonement for myself.
Only salvation can be said to cure.

. . . Is Gentle, Loving, Kind
The Healing Power Of Love
The emotion of real love is Light, and if we think of the suffering in the world with compassion, as we imagine Christ thought of it, we can send forth a great Light which will find a resting place in the heart of the weary and the sad and the sick, and will in time create a new life, a new body.
