Whoever is planted in the Tao
will not be rooted up.
Whoever embraces the Tao
will not slip away.
Her name will be held in honor
from generation to generation.
Let the Tao be present in your life
and you will become genuine.
Let it be present in your family
and your family will flourish.
Let it be present in your country
and your country will be an example
to all countries in the world.
Let it be present in the universe
and the universe will sing.
How do I know this is true?
By looking inside myself.
Tao Te Ching v54
I am one with all that is.
Gazing into a pool of water, I see my reflection. I smile back at myself, viewing the uniqueness of my face. I dip my hands into the cool water. As the droplets filter through my fingers, I am in awe with how connected I am to my surroundings.
I am much more than my reflection. I am one with God and with all of creation. The majesty of divine creation is evident in my surroundings as well.
God created me to be strong. Sadness, illness, and worry have no place in my life. Relying on my divine powers of wisdom, understanding, and love, I align myself with the good in every situation. I am one with all that is, and I am at peace.
For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.—1 Corinthians 12:13
Where darkness was I look upon the light.
Father, our eyes are opening at last. Your holy world awaits us, as our sight is finally restored and we can see. We thought we suffered. But we had forgot the Son whom You created. Now we see that darkness is our own imagining, and light is there for us to look upon. Christ’s vision changes darkness into light, for fear must disappear when love has come. Let me forgive Your holy world today, that I may look upon its holiness and understand it but reflects my own.
Our Love awaits us as we go to Him, and walks beside us showing us the way. He fails in nothing. He the End we seek, and He the Means by which we go to Him.
