The supreme good is like water,
which nourishes all things without trying to.
It is content with the low places that people disdain.
Thus it is like the Tao.
In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don’t try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.
When you are content to be simply yourself
and don’t compare or compete,
everybody will respect you.
Tao Te Ching v8
The spirit of God comforts and strengthens me.
A cat or dog does not know why their owner is upset, they simply know that comfort is needed. They may nuzzle or snuggle their human as if to say “I’m here; it’s going to be okay.” Just as a pet expresses unconditional love and acceptance in physical form, the spirit of God is unconditional love expressing in all forms.
Unity cofounder Charles Fillmore wrote: “Love is the power that joins and binds in divine harmony the universe and everything in it.” If I feel sad or disconnected, I turn within and remember my connection to the universal love that binds everything and everyone.
I am comforted knowing I am never alone because I am never separate from God. The spirit of God is my comfort.
Comfort, O comfort my people, says your God.–Isaiah 40:1
My sinlessness protects me from all harm.
My sinlessness ensures me perfect peace, eternal safety, everlasting love, freedom forever from all thought of loss; complete deliverance from suffering. And only happiness can be my state, for only happiness is given me. What must I do to know all this is mine? I must accept Atonement for myself, and nothing more. God has already done all things that need be done. And I must learn I need do nothing of myself, for I need but accept my Self, my sinlessness, created for me, now already mine, to feel God’s Love protecting me from harm, to understand my Father loves His Son; to know I am the Son my Father loves.
You Who created me in sinlessness are not mistaken about what I am. I was mistaken when I thought I sinned, but I accept Atonement for myself. Father, my dream is ended now. Amen.

. . . Is Calm, Quiet And Steady
Beneath The Clamour Of The World
You long for peace. You think of peace as goodwill towards each other, goodwill among the nations, the laying down of arms. But peace is far more than this, it can only be understood and realized within the heart. It lies beneath all the turmoil and noise and clamour of the world, beneath feeling, beneath thought. It is found in the deep, deep silence and stillness of the soul. It is spirit: it is God.
