The Master keeps her mind
always at one with the Tao;
that is what gives her her radiance.
The Tao is ungraspable.
How can her mind be at one with it?
Because she doesn’t cling to ideas.
The Tao is dark and unfathomable.
How can it make her radiant?
Because she lets it.
Since before time and space were,
the Tao is.
It is beyond is and is not.
How do I know this is true?
I look inside myself and see.
Tao Te Ching v21
I discover living waters in the deep well of my soul.
A folk story tells of a farmer who set out to dig a well. The ground was still dry about 15 feet down and he grew frustrated. He moved to another location and repeated the process twice more. Then his wife suggested he simply dig deeper right where he stood. He followed her advice and soon found an abundant water source.
At times I may act like the farmer. My spiritual practice may seem arid and unproductive. However, by continuing in faith, I move deeper into the well of my soul. Jesus told us about the “living waters” of the abundant, eternal Source. I tap this wellspring of joy by going within¬—right where I am. If my practice feels dry, I do not abandon it. I simply dig deeper and discover all I could ever want.
The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.–John 4:14
My sight goes forth to look upon Christ’s face.
I ask Your blessing on my sight today. It is the means which You have chosen to become the way to show me my mistakes, and look beyond them. It is given me to find a new perception through the Guide You gave to me, and through His lessons to surpass perception and return to truth. I ask for the illusion which transcends all those I made. Today I choose to see a world forgiven, in which everyone shows me the face of Christ, and teaches me that what I look upon belongs to me; that nothing is, except Your holy Son.
Today our sight is blessed indeed. We share one vision, as we look upon the face of Him Whose Self is ours. We are one because of Him Who is the Son of God; of Him Who is our own Identity.

God Will Bring Something More Beautiful
If you are called on to give up certain things; if God takes these things away, you have to learn resignation to His great love; to be at peace within, knowing that God will bring something more beautiful into your life.
