My teachings are easy to understand
and easy to put into practice.
Yet your intellect will never grasp them,
and if you try to practice them, you’ll fail.
My teachings are older than the world.
How can you grasp their meaning?
If you want to know me,
look inside your heart.
Tao Te Ching v70
I am an independent spirit with unlimited power.
I may have been born into challenging circumstances or run into difficulty along the way. Spirit gives me the inner resources to rise above whatever I face. I am free to think positively, act courageously, and soar like an eagle.
I value the ability to make decisions about matters that affect me. I use my spiritual powers to think and act in ways that benefit all. I have the power to do and be whatever I choose. I create the life of my dreams.
Attuned to Spirit, I am fearless and self-assured. I am confident and strong. I am an independent spirit and I am free.
The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your needs in parched places, and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters never fail.–Isaiah 58:11
I follow in the way appointed me.
I have a special place to fill; a role for me alone. Salvation waits until I take this part as what I choose to do. Until I make this choice, I am the slave of time and human destiny. But when I willingly and gladly go the way my Father’s plan appointed me to go, then will I recognize salvation is already here, already given all my brothers and already mine as well.
Father, Your way is what I choose today. Where it would lead me do I choose to go; what it would have me do I choose to do. Your way is certain, and the end secure. The memory of You awaits me there. And all my sorrows end in Your embrace, which You have promised to Your Son, who thought mistakenly that he had wandered from the sure protection of Your loving Arms.

. . . Is Gentle, Loving, Kind
If the action of another irritates you and you chafe under a sense of injustice, do not try to attack, even in your thoughts, the one who appears to have offended. Have you not give yourself to the Master of Love? There can be no compromise; your way is clearly shown. It is the way of love, gentleness, peace.
