All streams flow to the sea
because it is lower than they are.
Humility gives it its power.
If you want to govern the people,
you must place yourself below them.
If you want to lead the people,
you must learn how to follow them.
The Master is above the people,
and no one feels oppressed.
She goes ahead of the people,
and no one feels manipulated.
The whole world is grateful to her.
Because she competes with no one,
no one can compete with her.
Tao Te Ching v66
Divine potential is my recipe for success.
Flour, sugar, and eggs have the potential to be a cake. The finished product depends on my creativity. I measure, mix, and bake. I follow through on each step to complete my creation.
All the ingredients I need for a fulfilling life are available to me in divine potential. I find wisdom, love, imagination, and faith in quiet moments of prayer. Like discarding the eggshells, I eliminate what does not serve me. I align my will with Spirit and the next step is revealed. I complete my work with strength and understanding and a little zeal.
I am grateful for the life I live and for the power to create my life anew each day from divine potential, my recipe for success.
Now we have received … the Spirit that is from God, so that we may understand the gifts bestowed on us by God.—1 Corinthians 2:12
Be in my mind, my Father, through the day.
Be in my mind, my Father, when I wake, and shine on me throughout the day today. Let every minute be a time in which I dwell with You. And let me not forget my hourly thanksgiving that You have remained with me, and always will be there to hear my call to You and answer me. As evening comes, let all my thoughts be still of You and of Your Love. And let me sleep sure of my safety, certain of Your care, and happily aware I am Your Son.
This is as every day should be. Today, practice the end of fear. Have faith in Him Who is your Father. Trust all things to Him. Let Him reveal all things to you, and be you undismayed because you are His Son.
