For governing a country well
there is nothing better than moderation.
The mark of a moderate man
is freedom from his own ideas.
Tolerant like the sky,
all-pervading like sunlight,
firm like a mountain,
supple like a tree in the wind,
he has no destination in view
and makes use of anything
life happens to bring his way.
Nothing is impossible for him.
Because he has let go,
he can care for the people’s welfare
as a mother cares for her child.
Tao Te Ching v59
I celebrate God’s love and joy in the temple of my soul.
My life is a celebration of God’s love. I look to scripture for words to describe my joy. The Psalms speak to me and my heart sings: “Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary … Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance. Praise him with strings and pipe!”
My body—the temple of God—fills with the sounds of my celebration of Love. I feel the trumpet sounding within me. The lute and harp resonate in every activity of my day, bringing about joyful harmony. My motions are a dance of spiritual bliss. I carry the energy of divine celebration with me wherever I go. I shine my light in all I do, and brighten the lives of others. Praise God!
Whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God.—1 Corinthians 10:31
God is my Father, and His Son loves Him.
Father, I must return Your Love for me, for giving and receiving are the same, and You have given all Your Love to me. I must return it, for I want it mine in full awareness, blazing in my mind and keeping it within its kindly light, inviolate, beloved, with fear behind and only peace ahead. How still the way Your loving Son is led along to You!
Brother, we find that stillness now. The way is open. Now we follow it in peace together. You have reached your hand to me, and I will never leave you. We are one, and it is but this oneness that we seek, as we accomplish these few final steps which end a journey that was not begun.
