Colors blind the eye.
Sounds deafen the ear.
Flavors numb the taste.
Thoughts weaken the mind.
Desires wither the heart.
The Master observes the world
but trusts his inner vision.
He allows things to come and go.
His heart is open as the sky.
Tao Te Ching v12
My outer life mirrors my inner peace and harmony.
The circumstances of my life often reflect my state of mind. If I think I am stuck, I may be out of alignment with my values and spiritual practices.
I prayerfully look into my mind and heart. I compassionately see whether I have been living out of harmony with Truth principles. I may harbor resentment toward another person. Perhaps I am living from a place of fear rather than faith.
Becoming aware of any discord empowers me to transform it. I take the matter to God within and release it with love. Divine Love restores my life to its natural flow. As I become more aligned with my Highest Self, my relationships with people become radically more harmonious. I embrace our Oneness and I am at peace.
And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for those who make peace.—James 3:18
Let me remember that there is no sin.
Sin is the only thought that makes the goal of God seem unattainable. What else could blind us to the obvious, and make the strange and the distorted seem more clear? What else but sin engenders our attacks? What else but sin could be the source of guilt, demanding punishment and suffering? And what but sin could be the source of fear, obscuring God’s creation; giving love the attributes of fear and of attack?
Father, I would not be insane today. I would not be afraid of love, nor seek for refuge in its opposite. For love can have no opposite. You are the Source of everything there is. And everything that is remains with You, and You with it.

Be Patient, Have Faith
We know, beloved child, the sorrows and the difficulties of the material life lived in a physical body at present unawakened to the beauty of God’s worlds. We know how hard it is to pursue the shadowed path. You have to walk in darkness, to accept the conditions in which you find yourselves, trusting in the love of the Great White Spirit. This is not easy, we know, but have patience and faith. Never doubt that all works together for good; never doubt the power, the wisdom and the love of God.
