True words aren’t eloquent;
eloquent words aren’t true.
Wise men don’t need to prove their point;
men who need to prove their point aren’t wise.
The Master has no possessions.
The more he does for others,
the happier he is.
The more he gives to others,
the wealthier he is.
The Tao nourishes by not forcing.
By not dominating, the Master leads.
Tao Te Ching v81
I act on divine guidance with confidence and faith.
Guidance comes to me as an insight, a feeling, or a sense of rightness. I release my struggle for answers and open my heart to receive. I ask God for clear guidance and the wisdom to recognize it. Then, I wait expectantly, yet patiently. Knowledge and insight come to me naturally.
My spiritual practices of prayer and meditation fortify me for my next big decision. I am attuned to my inner Christ Essence. I have unwavering faith and trust in God. When decisions need to be made or when problems arise, I instinctively turn within. I listen for God’s guidance, knowing I will receive it in due time. I move forward with confidence and faith.
I will show you what someone is like who comes to me, hears my words, and acts on them. That one is like a man building a house, who dug deeply and laid the foundation on rock.—Luke 6:47, 48
Without forgiveness I will still be blind.
Sin is the symbol of attack. Behold it anywhere, and I will suffer. For forgiveness is the only means whereby Christ’s vision comes to me. Let me accept what His sight shows me as the simple truth, and I am healed completely. Brother, come and let me look on you. Your loveliness reflects my own. Your sinlessness is mine. You stand forgiven, and I stand with you.
So would I look on everyone today. My brothers are Your Sons. Your Fatherhood created them, and gave them all to me as part of You, and my own Self as well. Today I honor You through them, and thus I hope this day to recognize my Self.

. . . Is A Tower Of Strength And Light
Above The Clouds
It is easy to be cheerful when there is everything to be cheerful about, but not so easy when the earth is shrouded in darkness – at these times your test comes. It is easy to be kind when everyone is kind, easy to be loving when others are loving. But in this there is little credit. The wise brother knows the Light is shining in the heavens even when the shadows are dense. Thus when you raise your consciousness above the clouds, you will know that the sun is shining and that the life of Christ is the only enduring live.
