Your Three Great Treasures

Three Treasures 3Some say that my teaching is nonsense.
Others call it lofty but impractical.
But to those who have looked inside themselves,
this nonsense makes perfect sense.
And to those who put it into practice,
this loftiness has roots that go deep.
I have just three things to teach:
simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and in thoughts,
you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.
Tao Te Ching v67

Balance 4Healthy Choices
I make healthy choices in all areas of my life.
Today brings many opportunities to experience life in healthy and fulfilling ways. I listen for divine guidance as I consider choices, decisions, actions, and words. I wait for the still, small voice within. As I attune to God, answers come quickly.
I trust the still, small voice, for I know it comes from God. Regularly turning within in prayer, while tuning in to the divine guidance I receive, helps me to nourish and support my health. I trust my inner wisdom to guide me in what to say and do and how to live and interact with others in a healthy way.
In all areas of my life, I trust that I am led toward what is best. In the Silence, I receive inspiration and in trust, I listen.
I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.—John 6:35

Above the Mist 2I seek a future different from the past.
From new perception of the world there comes a future very different from the past. The future now is recognized as but extension of the present. Past mistakes can cast no shadows on it, so that fear has lost its idols and its images, and being formless, it has no effects. Death will not claim the future now, for life is now its goal, and all the needed means are happily provided. Who can grieve or suffer when the present has been freed, extending its security and peace into a quiet future filled with joy?
Father, we were mistaken in the past, and choose to use the present to be free. Now do we leave the future in Your Hands, leaving behind our past mistakes, and sure that You will keep Your present promises, and guide the future in their holy light.

Healing 7. . . Is Constant
The Presence Of Christ
At all times keep in your heart the thought of the presence of Christ; remember His ever-peacefulness and calm amidst the turmoil of worldliness. You who are His disciple must ever seek to find the place of quietude and sweetness in the midst of the crowd. It is easy in solitude to be close to Him, but you must learn to become aware of your Master, despite the crowding of the multitude.
