She who is centered in the Tao
can go where she wishes, without danger.
She perceives the universal harmony,
even amid great pain,
because she has found peace in her heart.
Music or the smell of good cooking
may make people stop and enjoy.
But words that point to the Tao
seem monotonous and without flavor.
When you look for it, there is nothing to see.
When you listen for it, there is nothing to hear.
When you use it, it is inexhaustible.
Tao Te Ching v35
I live in the fullness of grace simply because I am.
God gives me grace without conditions. I do not have to work hard or earn divine blessings. My worthiness does not depend upon my actions. I am worthy of grace because of who I am.
When Moses stood at the burning bush and asked, who shall I say sent me? God said, “I am who I am.” The same I Am incarnated in the form of Jesus and lies at the core of me. I am “made in the image and likeness” of God and therefore I Am—the very essence of God. This gift of my essence is grace.
Grace takes action, too, showing up as delightful goodness in my life. I allow grace to overflow from my heart in free and joyous expression. I live in the fullness of grace simply because I am.
By grace you have been saved … it is the gift of God.—Ephesians 2:8
My true Identity abides in You.
Father, I made an image of myself, and it is this I call the Son of God. Yet is creation as it always was, for Your creation is unchangeable. Let me not worship idols. I am he my Father loves. My holiness remains the light of Heaven and the Love of God. Is not what is beloved of You secure? Is not the light of Heaven infinite? Is not Your Son my true Identity, when You created everything that is?
Now are we One in shared Identity, with God our Father as our only Source, and everything created part of us. And so we offer blessing to all things, uniting lovingly with all the world, which our forgiveness has made one with us.
