In harmony with the Tao,
the sky is clear and spacious,
the earth is solid and full,
all creatures flourish together,
content with the way they are,
endlessly repeating themselves,
When man interferes with the Tao,
the sky becomes filthy,
the earth becomes depleted,
the equilibrium crumbles,
creatures become extinct.
The Master views the parts with compassion,
because he understands the whole.
His constant practice is humility.
He doesn’t glitter like a jewel
but lets himself be shaped by the Tao,
as rugged and common as stone.
Tao Te Ching v39
Spirit is my constant help through every change.
The ability to move through transitions with ease adds to our quality of life. As seasons change we acclimate to variations of cold and heat, adjusting clothing and activities accordingly. Each day we transition from night to day, from sleep to wakefulness.
Our souls inhabit a particular body for a time. In the end, we release this physical state, yet our soul continues within the eternal life of God. In the transition to and from the physical, our soul is lovingly in God’s care.
Charles Fillmore described God as “unchangeable life, love, substance, and intelligence of Being.” Transition is ongoing, yet God does not change. I count on this everlasting source of power and I am fulfilled.
As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.—Genesis 8:22
You are my goal, my Father. Only You.
Where would I go but Heaven? What could be a substitute for happiness? What gift could I prefer before the peace of God? What treasure would I seek and find and keep that can compare with my Identity? And would I rather live with fear than love?
You are my goal, my Father. What but You could I desire to have? What way but that which leads to You could I desire to walk? And what except the memory of You could signify to me the end of dreams and futile substitutions for the truth? You are my only goal. Your Son would be as You created him. What way but this could I expect to recognize my Self, and be at one with my Identity?

Are you afraid of poverty, of lacking the necessities of life? Who feeds you and clothes you my brother, my sister? None other than the Great White Spirit; He will never fail you if only you will attune yourselves to His life, surrender to His love and His wisdom; for He knows you needs, and will never fail in His supply. Only you cut yourselves off from this supply by forgetting that He is the Source of all, on every plane of your being, spiritual, mental, physical.
