Path, Truth, Greatness

Quiet WithinWhen a superior man hears of the Tao,
he immediately begins to embody it.
When an average man hears of the Tao,
he half believes it, half doubts it.
When a foolish man hears of the Tao,
he laughs out loud.
If he didn’t laugh,
it wouldn’t be the Tao.
Thus it is said:
The path into the light seems dark,
the path forward seems to go back,
the direct path seems long,
true power seems weak,
true purity seems tarnished,
true steadfastness seems changeable,
true clarity seems obscure,
the greatest art seems unsophisticated,
the greatest love seems indifferent,
the greatest wisdom seems childish.
The Tao is nowhere to be found.
Yet it nourishes and completes all things.
Tao Te Ching v41

TrustProtected
The power of God protects me. I am the power of God.
If ever I feel uncertain or uncomfortable with what is happening in and around me, I affirm the truth: The power of God protects me. I am the power of God. I am then able to think clearly and act with confidence and poise.
In my prayer times, I build on a consciousness of God’s power and presence in much the same way a mason builds a strong wall. I affirm the power of God in any moment of stress and know all is well.
Spirit within me enables me to be strong in every circumstance. Fear has no place in me because I maintain constant contact with God. I am courageous when others need reassurance. I am protected in every situation.
He said, “Do not fear, greatly beloved, you are safe. Be strong and courageous!” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened.—Daniel 10:19

Love Created Me Like ItselfI am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.
I bless the world because I bless myself.
God’s blessing shines upon me from within my heart,
where He abides. I need but turn to Him, and every sorrow
melts away, as I accept His boundless Love for me.
I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.

. . . Is Strong To Serve
The Master’s Service
You may be used at any moment for the Master’s service, but because the call to service is not always what you were expecting, sometimes you do not realize that you have been called and chosen for the Master’s work. Make ready in your hearts, for you know not the day nor the hour when the Master will come.
