For governing a country well
there is nothing better than moderation.
The mark of a moderate man
is freedom from his own ideas.
Tolerant like the sky,
all-pervading like sunlight,
firm like a mountain,
supple like a tree in the wind,
he has no destination in view
and makes use of anything
life happens to bring his way.
Nothing is impossible for him.
Because he has let go,
he can care for the people’s welfare
as a mother cares for her child.
Tao Te Ching v59
Let Go, Let God
As I trust God, my life aligns in perfect order.
A child flying a kite does not stand and wait for the kite to take flight. To succeed, the child must run fast and trust the wind to pick up the kite and take it into the sky. For my life to soar, I must not stand still holding tight to how I think my dreams must happen. I must move with Spirit and trust God to lift me up.
If my thoughts wander and I begin to worry about a situation, I take a deep breath and center myself in the presence of God within. I let go of trying to control outcomes. I then envision the situation rising higher into the sky—becoming smaller than ever imaginable.
I rest easy knowing that as I let go and let God, my life is in perfect order.
You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall go well with you.—Psalm 128:2
Conflicting wishes cannot be my will.
Father, Your Will is mine, and only that. There is no other will for me to have. Let me not try to make another will, for it is senseless and will cause me pain. Your Will alone can bring me happiness, and only Yours exists. If I would have what only You can give, I must accept Your Will for me, and enter into peace where conflict is impossible. Your Son is one with You in being and in will, and nothing contradicts the holy truth that I remain as You created me.
And with this prayer we enter silently into a state where conflict cannot come, because we join our holy will with God’s, in recognition that they are the same.

. . . Is Constant
Children, there is no death, and there need be no weariness of the flesh. There is no weariness when the soul has entered into the full glory of the Sun, the Almighty One. May all the sadness and tiredness and weariness be dispelled by the inflowing Life-giver, the Sun!
