Those who know don’t talk.
Those who talk don’t know.
Close your mouth,
block off your senses,
blunt your sharpness,
untie your knots,
soften your glare,
settle your dust.
This is the primal identity.
Be like the Tao.
It can’t be approached or withdrawn from,
benefited or harmed,
honored or brought into disgrace.
It gives itself up continually.
That is why it endures.
Tao Te Ching v56
I live in harmony with the symphony of Life.
When a musical statement is incomplete and needs closure, there is a moment of uneasy anticipation. When I am impatient, anxious, or judgmental, I am in a similar state of discord. In music, this out-of-sorts feeling often occurs just before the end of a phrase. A few notes change and discord resolves in a harmonious chord. What a joyful ending!
If I am feeling out of sync with the world around me, I can stay there or I can change my response. I choose to be the change that creates harmony. I modify my perspective and gradually move into harmony with what is. Discord dissolves and I live in unity with the symphony of Life.
Make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.—Philippians 2:2
God is with me. I live and move in Him.
God is with me. He is my Source of life, the life within, the air I breathe, the food by which I am sustained, the water which renews and cleanses me. He is my home, wherein I live and move; the Spirit which directs my actions, offers me Its Thoughts, and guarantees my safety from all pain. He covers me with kindness and with care, and holds in love the Son He shines upon, who also shines on Him. How still is he who knows the truth of what He speaks today!
Father, we have no words except Your Name upon our lips and in our minds, as we come quietly into Your Presence now, and ask to rest with You in peace a while.

. . . Is Strong To Serve
The Greatest Service
One soul can help the whole world. You say, ‘I want to do some work. Use me, here I am!’ But, my child, you don’t need to come to us to offer yourself. The service is here before you, waiting in you own every heart every day. The greatest service that anyone can give is continually to think aright – continually to send forth love, to forgive.
