The Tao is always at ease.
It overcomes without competing,
answers without speaking a word,
arrives without being summoned,
accomplishes without a plan.
Its net covers the whole universe.
And though its meshes are wide,
it doesn’t let a thing slip through.
Tao Te Ching v73
I am one with the spirit of God.
When life unfolds as planned, it’s easy for me to believe God and I are co-creators. I accomplish my goals, circumstances fall into place, and I overflow with gratitude.
Other days I may feel powerless. In these times I remember to go first to prayer. When I am connected to Christ in me, I am more able to see the current situation through the eyes of faith. With the eyes of faith, I see blessings in disappointments. I confidently overcome obstacles. I clearly see the next steps to achieving my goals.
I strengthen my faith with every minute I spend in prayer and meditation. Seeing through the eyes of faith, I live in a continuous state of gratitude.
For your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in faithfulness to you.—Psalm 26:3
The glory of my Father is my own.
Let not the truth about ourselves today be hidden by a false humility. Let us instead be thankful for the gifts our Father gave us. Can we see in those with whom He shares His glory any trace of sin and guilt? And can it be that we are not among them, when He loves His Son forever and with perfect constancy, knowing he is as He created him?
We thank You, Father, for the light that shines forever in us. And we honor it, because You share it with us. We are one, united in this light and one with You, at peace with all creation and ourselves.
