If you want to be a great leader,
you must learn to follow the Tao.
Stop trying to control.
Let go of fixed plans and concepts,
and the world will govern itself.
The more prohibitions you have,
the less virtuous people will be.
The more weapons you have,
the less secure people will be.
The more subsidies you have,
the less self-reliant people will be.
Therefore the Master says:
I let go of the law,
and people become honest.
I let go of economics,
and people become prosperous.
I let go of religion,
and people become serene.
I let go of all desire for the common good,
and the good becomes common as grass.
Tao Te Ching v57
I am an amazing expression of God, a blessing to the world.
Some thoughts in my mind may be as dark as a moonless night. Yet just as the sun rises each day, the light of God is always available to lift me up. I break out of the darkness by allowing Love to flood my mind and heart. I awaken to the truth—I am an amazing expression of God, a blessing to the world!
Recognition of my truth brings me into balance. I become aware of the warm summer air caressing my body, the beating of my heart, and the rhythm of my breath. I remain in this awareness and feel energy increasing in me. I celebrate love overflowing in me.
I give thanks for my ever-present Source of energy—the light of God. I radiate my energy into the world for the benefit of all humanity.
I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.—John 10:10
God is my life. I have no life but His.
I was mistaken when I thought I lived apart from God, a separate entity that moved in isolation, unattached, and housed within a body. Now I know my life is God’s, I have no other home, and I do not exist apart from Him. He has no Thoughts that are not part of me, and I have none but those which are of Him.
Our Father, let us see the face of Christ instead of our mistakes. For we who are Your holy Son are sinless. We would look upon our sinlessness, for guilt proclaims that we are not Your Son. And we would not forget You longer. We are lonely here, and long for Heaven, where we are at home. Today we would return. Our Name is Yours, and we acknowledge that we are Your Son.
