The best athlete
wants his opponent at his best.
The best general
enters the mind of his enemy.
The best businessman
serves the communal good.
The best leader
follows the will of the people.
All of them embody
the virtue of non-competition.
Not that they don’t love to compete,
but they do it in the spirit of play.
In this they are like children
and in harmony with the Tao.
Tao Te Ching v68
I revel in our Oneness as I explore the world around me.
Children who feel safe confidently explore new surroundings. I tap into this childlike trust as I embark on new adventures. I affirm: I am safe and secure—loved and protected by God.
Curious about different ways of living and being, I make a point to try something new today. Perhaps I sample a new cuisine. Maybe I attend a service of a different faith or listen to music from another culture. I may plan a trip abroad or just consider a new idea. Whatever I choose, I explore with an open heart, like a child who feels safe. I do not need to defend my positions or impose my beliefs on anyone. I celebrate diversity.
My faith is strong and I have a deep love for all of God’s children. I revel in our Oneness as I explore the world around me.
All of you are one in Christ Jesus.—Galatians 3:28
Father, today I am Your Son again.
Today we will anticipate the time when dreams of sin and guilt are gone, and we have reached the holy peace we never left. Merely a tiny instant has elapsed between eternity and timelessness. So brief the interval there was no lapse in continuity, nor break in thoughts which are forever unified as one. Nothing has ever happened to disturb the peace of God the Father and the Son. This we accept as wholly true today.
We thank You, Father, that we cannot lose the memory of You and of Your Love. We recognize our safety, and give thanks for all the gifts You have bestowed on us, for all the loving help we have received, for Your eternal patience, and the Word which You have given us that we are saved.

. . . Is Wise In Speech And Action
Do Your Best
Do your best, even if you make apparent mistakes – how are you to judge if they are mistakes? You can only obey the higher urge which inclines you to contribute the best that you have to the service of the community of men and angels. Thus you shall be an ever-growing channel for the Light of the Master.
