Men are born soft and supple;
dead, they are stiff and hard.
Plants are born tender and pliant;
dead, they are brittle and dry.
Thus whoever is stiff and inflexible
is a disciple of death.
Whoever is soft and yielding
is a disciple of life.
The hard and stiff will be broken.
The soft and supple will prevail.
Tao Te Ching v76
God is my all. I am grateful and abundantly blessed.
My prosperity does not depend upon a person or thing. My feeling of fulfillment comes from my awareness of Spirit and recognizing the many blessings I receive.
My appreciation for these blessings grows when I take time to give thanks for all that I have and will receive. Prosperity comes to me in many forms—family, friends, joy, health, and so much more. While the contents of a wallet or purse may be a reflection of finances, my true prosperity comes from Spirit.
If I should have a financial concern, I turn within and give thanks in advance that Spirit is opening the way to new and creative avenues for my finances to flow. Today and every day I affirm: I am abundantly blessed.
I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security.—Jeremiah 33:6
I gladly make the “sacrifice” of fear.
Here is the only “sacrifice” You ask of Your beloved Son; You ask him to give up all suffering, all sense of loss and sadness, all anxiety and doubt, and freely let Your Love come streaming in to his awareness, healing him of pain, and giving him Your Own eternal joy. Such is the “sacrifice” You ask of me, and one I gladly make; the only “cost” of restoration of Your memory to me, for the salvation of the world.
And as we pay the debt we owe to truth,–a debt that merely is the letting go of self-deceptions and of images we worshipped falsely–truth returns to us in wholeness and in joy. We are deceived no longer. Love has now returned to our awareness. And we are at peace again, for fear has gone and only love remains.

Apply Love To Your Problem
Love is the great solvent of all difficulties, all problems, all understandings. Apply love, by your inner attitude towards any human problem. Put aside the reasoning mind. Let divine love operate in you. Give from your inner self God’s love, and you will be surprised to find that every problem will be solved; every knot loosened.
