Can you coax your mind from its wandering
and keep to the original oneness?
Can you let your body become
supple as a newborn child’s?
Can you cleanse your inner vision
until you see nothing but the light?
Can you love people and lead them
without imposing your will?
Can you deal with the most vital matters
by letting events take their course?
Can you step back from you own mind
and thus understand all things?
Giving birth and nourishing,
having without possessing,
acting with no expectations,
leading and not trying to control:
this is the supreme virtue.
Tao Te Ching v10
I am free!
I may have felt in the past that obstacles were blocking me from achieving my goals. I may have thought a person or circumstance was keeping me from the healthy, fulfilling life I desire. When these thoughts arise, I turn within. In prayer I acknowledge the truth that God is my strength. No person, place, or thing can keep me from my good. I am free! I am unlimited!
With this in mind I focus once again on my goals. I see the next step on my path and I take it. I release any false ideas about obstacles, knowing they will clear as I grow in consciousness. I am free to follow divine ideas and manifest my highest good.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and … to let the oppressed go free.—Luke 4:18
I will receive whatever I request.
No one desires pain. But he can think that pain is pleasure. No one would avoid his happiness. But he can think that joy is painful, threatening and dangerous. Everyone will receive what he requests. But he can be confused indeed about the things he wants; the state he would attain. What can he then request that he would want when he receives it? He has asked for what will frighten him, and bring him suffering. Let us resolve today to ask for what we really want, and only this, that we may spend this day in fearlessness, without confusing pain with joy, or fear with love.
Father, this is Your day. It is a day in which I would do nothing by myself, but hear Your Voice in everything I do; requesting only what You offer me, accepting only Thoughts You share with me.
