Success is as dangerous as failure.
Hope is as hollow as fear.
What does it mean that success is a dangerous as failure?
Whether you go up the ladder or down it,
you position is shaky.
When you stand with your two feet on the ground,
you will always keep your balance.
What does it mean that hope is as hollow as fear?
Hope and fear are both phantoms
that arise from thinking of the self.
When we don’t see the self as self,
what do we have to fear?
See the world as yourself.
Have faith in the way things are.
Love the world as your self;
then you can care for all things.
Tao Te Ching v13
I renew my commitment to spiritual growth.
Before taking a picture, a photographer carefully focuses the camera to ensure the best results. Likewise, I put first things first by focusing on my connection to God. Every morning, I renew my commitment to staying centered in Spirit. I vow to grow, change, and explore the depths of my being. Nurturing my relationship with God is my highest priority.
I quiet my mind and reconnect with Spirit. I take a few deep breaths as I relax. Then I listen. What does my inner guidance lead me to see, hear, or know? I experience a greater calm and awaken to new feelings and awareness. I move forward with confidence, knowing God always guides me in the right direction. I strengthen my connection with Spirit daily and life expands with new possibilities.
Strive first for the kingdom of God … and all these things will be given to you as well.–Matthew 6:33
Let me remember God created me.
Father, I did not make myself, although in my insanity I thought I did. Yet, as Your Thought, I have not left my Source, remaining part of Who created me. Your Son, my Father, calls on You today. Let me remember You created me. Let me remember my Identity. And let my sinlessness arise again before Christ’s vision, through which I would look upon my brothers and myself today.
Now is our Source remembered, and Therein we find our true Identity at last. Holy indeed are we, because our Source can know no sin. And we who are His Sons are like each other, and alike to Him.

The Law Is Just, Perfect And True
You do not need to stand up for your ‘rights.’ Realize that God adjusts things with exact law, and peace will return to your heart. Don’t get fussed when things are difficult – be still.
