The heavy is the root of the light.
The unmoved is the source of all movement.
Thus the Master travels all day
without leaving home.
However splendid the views,
she stays serenely in herself.
Why should the lord of the country
flit about like a fool?
If you let yourself be blown to and fro,
you lose touch with your root.
If you let restlessness move you,
you lose touch with who you are.
Tao Te Ching v26
Let Go, Let God
I let go and let God guide my life.
Sometimes events, people, or situations may not live up to my expectations. I may feel disappointed, let down, or angry. My first thought may be to look for someone to blame. I may want to force an outcome or think about running away. In these moments, I take a deep, relaxing breath and turn within. With each breath, I release tensions, fears, and judgments, and I realign with Spirit.
As I settle deeper into prayer I am willing to release whatever may be bothering me. I realize I don’t have to know the who, how, or when of a resolution, only that it will happen in its perfect timing and place. I affirm patience and faith—knowing I am blessed in ways beyond my current understanding.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.—Proverbs 3:5-6
Today belongs to love. Let me not fear.
Father, today I would let all things be as You created them, and give Your Son the honor due his sinlessness; the love of brother to his brother and his Friend. Through this I am redeemed. Through this as well the truth will enter where illusions were, light will replace all darkness, and Your Son will know he is as You created him.
A special blessing comes to us today, from Him Who is our Father. Give this day to Him, and there will be no fear today, because the day is given unto love.

You Long For The Light
You pray earnestly for your problems to be removed; you long for the light and for wonderful spiritual ecstasy. But can you not see that it is only going through the discipline of these outer things that your eyes are opened and your sensitivity to heavenly truth increased? You cannot taste and see until you have passed through this process and discipline. Therefore thank God for the trials and heartaches, which are disciplining your soul until it becomes able to comprehend and absorb the beauty of the heavenly life.
