The heavy is the root of the light.
The unmoved is the source of all movement.
Thus the Master travels all day
without leaving home.
However splendid the views,
she stays serenely in herself.
Why should the lord of the country
flit about like a fool?
If you let yourself be blown to and fro,
you lose touch with your root.
If you let restlessness move you,
you lose touch with who you are.
Tao Te Ching v26
I reveal the glory of my authentic self.
Psychologist Carl Jung said, “The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” A great wind of freedom blows when I identify who I am not, then peel back those layers to reveal my truest self.
As a child, I may have learned to act in ways designed to please others. Yet now I know Spirit’s love is infinite and nonjudgmental. I drop the masks I wore to win others’ love and reveal my true self.
I accept “the privilege of a lifetime” by getting to know myself better. I courageously dig deep into my heart and acknowledge my greatest passions and desires. I rejoice in revealing the authentic me.
You were taught to put away your former way of life, your old self … and to clothe yourselves with the new self, created according to the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.–Ephesians 4:22, 24
There is no end to all the peace and joy,
And all the miracles that I will give,
When I accept God’s Word. Why not today?
Why should I wait, my Father, for the joy You promised me? For You will keep Your Word You gave Your Son in exile. I am sure my treasure waits for me, and I need but reach out my hand to find it. Even now my fingers touch it. It is very close. I need not wait an instant more to be at peace forever. It is You I choose, and my Identity along with You. Your Son would be Himself, and know You as his Father and Creator, and his Love.

Live In God, In God’s Time
Live tranquilly in God, in God’s time. Every morning on waking and every night before you go to sleep, send out a thought to the Great White Spirit, that is all. Just feel that He is in your heart and that you are the son-daughter of that living power; that whatever your need the Great White Spirit knows it.
