True words aren’t eloquent;
eloquent words aren’t true.
Wise men don’t need to prove their point;
men who need to prove their point aren’t wise.
The Master has no possessions.
The more he does for others,
the happier he is.
The more he gives to others,
the wealthier he is.
The Tao nourishes by not forcing.
By not dominating, the Master leads.
Tao Te Ching v81
I make room in my world for new good to appear.
To experience greater peace and prosperity, I make a habit of releasing unwanted and unneeded belongings. By letting go of what no longer serves me, I make room for new good to appear.
Release makes my world more spacious. It opens the way for the free circulation of God’s infinite supply.
Letting go need not be painful. I am free to keep useful, artistic, or sentimental items, and release whatever has fulfilled its purpose. Donating, recycling, or selling unneeded possessions can also create breathing space in my home.
No matter where I begin, I ask for divine guidance. I then joyously set into motion the cleansing power of release.
For one’s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.–Luke 12:15
I choose the second place to gain the first.
What seems to be the second place is first, for all things we perceive are upside down until we listen to the Voice for God. It seems that we will gain autonomy but by our striving to be separate, and that our independence from the rest of God’s creation is the way in which salvation is obtained. Yet all we find is sickness, suffering and loss and death. This is not what our Father wills for us, nor is there any second to His Will. To join with His is but to find our own. And since our will is His, it is to Him that we must go to recognize our will.
There is no will but Yours. And I am glad that nothing I imagine contradicts what You would have me be. It is Your Will that I be wholly safe, eternally at peace. And happily I share that Will which You, my Father, gave as part of me.

The Life That Makes All Things New
God-in-man makes all things new. When man realizes the Christ Spirit within, everything changes for him. For then he begins to see beauty instead of ugliness, love instead of hate; to realize health instead of sickness. The world becomes fresh and new, as when after rain you can look out on an earth washed clean, and shining in the sunlight.
