A good traveler has no fixed plans
and is not intent upon arriving.
A good artist lets his intuition
lead him wherever it wants.
A good scientist has freed himself of concepts
and keeps his mind open to what is.
Thus the Master is available to all people
and doesn’t reject anyone.
He is ready to use all situations
and doesn’t waste anything.
This is called embodying the light.
What is a good man but a bad man’s teacher?
What is a bad man but a good man’s job?
If you don’t understand this, you will get lost,
however intelligent you are.
It is the great secret.
Tao Te Ching v28
I am born anew.
Every day my body is renewing itself. New skin is created, hair grows, and each organ remakes itself cell by cell. This same process applies to my inner life as well. I may have noticed a habit or reaction that I would like to change, a belief that is limiting, or a false story I am telling myself.
In my prayer time I consider what the divine image of myself might be. It may be more compassionate, understanding, or forgiving. I hold this vision in my mind and heart, knowing it may take time to come to fruition. Each day I release old ways of being and give life to a renewed, radiant self.
Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have stripped off the old self with its practices and have clothed yourselves with the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge according to the image of its creator.—Colossians 3:9-10
Sickness is but another name for sin.
Healing is but another name for God.
The miracle is thus a call to Him.
Father, You promised You would never fail to answer any call Your Son might make to You. It does not matter where he is, what seems to be his problem, nor what he believes he has become. He is Your Son, and You will answer him. The miracle reflects Your Love, and thus it answers him. Your Name replaces every thought of sin, and who is sinless cannot suffer pain. Your Name gives answer to Your Son, because to call Your Name is but to call his own.

. . .Is Calm, Quiet And Steady
Man Is Divine
In the spheres of light, men are tranquil, with shining God-like faces. Every piece of work is executed perfectly, and the effort of all is applied to further the happiness of the community. Always, in your inner selves and in your quiet moments, you can rise into this perfect life, and receive from those who dwell there the inspiration to live likewise on earth. Don’t make the excuse that man is only human. With all the force of truth that is in us, we say, we know, that man is divine.
