The Tao is infinite, eternal.
Why is it eternal?
It was never born;
thus it can never die.
Why is it infinite?
It has no desires for itself;
thus it is present for all beings.
The Master stays behind;
that is why she is ahead.
She is detached from all things;
that is why she is one with them.
Because she has let go of herself,
she is perfectly fulfilled.
Tao Te Ching v7
I relax and connect with my Source.
Sometimes I may be anxious and catch myself holding my breath. I quickly center myself by relaxing my shoulders and breathing in slowly. Then I exhale all the air from my lungs. As I let go of tension, I connect with my Source. I concentrate on my breathing for a while—mentally using my outbreaths to bring relaxation to every part of my body.
The energizing activity of God flows in and through me. Breathing in, I open my heart. Breathing out, I release the old. I experience love, joy, and gratitude in the depth of my being. The rhythm of my breath draws me into the presence of God and I relax. I am filled with the life of Spirit, surrounded by the unbounded love of God. My soul rests gratefully in sweet silence and peace.
Return, O my soul, to your rest, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.—Psalm 116:7
Let every voice but God’s be still in me.
Father, today I would but hear Your Voice. In deepest silence I would come to You, to hear Your Voice and to receive Your Word. I have no prayer but this: I come to You to ask You for the truth. And truth is but Your Will, which I would share with You today.
Today we let no ego thoughts direct our words or actions. When such thoughts occur, we quietly step back and look at them, and then we let them go. We do not want what they would bring with them. And so we do not choose to keep them. They are silent now. And in the stillness, hallowed by His Love, God speaks to us and tells us of our will, as we have chosen to remember Him.

See The Best
Do not despair; do not dwell on the negative side of any situation, for you will do no good by this. Always put into operation the forces of construction. Believe that good will come, that the best is coming, and it will. We shall never forsake you. We also are God’s children and His agents. We shall never forsake you, dear brother.
