The best athlete
wants his opponent at his best.
The best general
enters the mind of his enemy.
The best businessman
serves the communal good.
The best leader
follows the will of the people.
All of them embody
the virtue of non-competition.
Not that they don’t love to compete,
but they do it in the spirit of play.
In this they are like children
and in harmony with the Tao.
Tao Te Ching v68
I am blessed with new insights and creative solutions.
I make a difference in the world by being me. I express divine love throughout my day—in the work I do, in what I write, the way I greet others, and in my caring and compassion. The ways I respond to the world around me reflect my unique way of demonstrating my Christ Nature.
I nurture my spiritual unfoldment through my divine connection. I let go of any trials or tribulations, worries or concerns, and rest in a time of quiet communion. As I connect with Spirit within, I am blessed with new insights and creative solutions.
I go forth to express myself as the free-flowing channel of divine love that I am. Spirit guides me to make an ever-greater difference in the world.
We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us.–Romans 12:6
All gifts my brothers give belong to me.
Each day a thousand treasures come to me with every passing moment. I am blessed with gifts throughout the day, in value far beyond all things of which I can conceive. A brother smiles upon another, and my heart is gladdened. Someone speaks a word of gratitude or mercy, and my mind receives this gift and takes it as its own. And everyone who finds the way to God becomes my savior, pointing out the way to me, and giving me his certainty that what he learned is surely mine as well.
I thank You, Father, for the many gifts that come to me today and every day from every Son of God. My brothers are unlimited in all their gifts to me. Now may I offer them my thankfulness, that gratitude to them may lead me on to my Creator and His memory.
A Course In Miracles ~ 315
. . . Is Gentle, Loving, Kind
One of the first lessons or aspirations of a brother, one of the points of brotherhood, is to overcome egotism; then the flowers of the spirit bloom and you have your saint. A saint is human, is understanding; a saint is able to enter into all the feelings, the joys and the sorrows of another. A saint is all love.
