Thoughts of Life

Infinite Garden of the SpiritThe Tao is the center of the universe,
the good man’s treasure,
the bad man’s refuge.
Honors can be bought with fine words,
respect can be won with good deeds;
but the Tao is beyond all value,
and no one can achieve it.
Thus, when a new leader is chosen,
don’t offer to help him
with your wealth or your expertise.
Offer instead
to teach him about the Tao.
Why did the ancient Masters esteem the Tao?
Because, being one with the Tao,
when you seek, you find;
and when you make a mistake, you are forgiven.
That is why everybody loves it.
Tao Te Ching v62

Giving ReceivingHealing
The healing presence of God revitalizes me.
In the Book of John, Jesus asked a man with an infirmity, “Do you want to be made well?” Faith plays an essential role in the healing process. Those who approached Jesus believed healing was possible. He taught that wholeness is a spiritual condition. The presence of God within is the inner resource of radiant wholeness and well-being.
We support our healing when we nurture accepting, positive attitudes. Rather than focusing on any illnesses or unhealthy condition, we instead say to ourselves and to Spirit, Yes, I want to be made well! Doing so opens our entire being to wellness. In Truth, we are whole and revitalized.
They … brought all who were sick to him, and begged him that they might touch even the fringe of his cloak; and all who touched it were healed.—Matthew 14:35, 36

Inner Peace 6Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.
It is your forgiveness that will bring the world of darkness to the light. It is your forgiveness that lets you recognize the light in which you see. Forgiveness is the demonstration that you are the light of the world. Through your forgiveness does the truth about yourself return to your memory. Therefore, in your forgiveness lies your salvation.
Illusions about yourself and the world are one. That is why all forgiveness is a gift to yourself. Your goal is to find out who you are, having denied your Identity by attacking creation and its Creator. Now you are learning how to remember the truth. For this attack must be replaced by forgiveness, so that thoughts of life may replace thoughts of death.
Remember that in every attack you call upon your own weakness, while each time you forgive you call upon the strength of Christ in you. Do you not then begin to understand what forgiveness will do for you? It will remove all sense of weakness, strain and fatigue from your mind. It will take away all fear and guilt and pain. It will restore the invulnerability and power God gave His Son to your awareness.
Let us be glad to begin and end this day by practicing today’s idea, and to use it as frequently as possible throughout the day. It will help to make the day as happy for you as God wants you to be. And it will help those around you, as well as those who seem to be far away in space and time, to share this happiness with you.
As often as you can, closing your eyes if possible, say to yourself today:
Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.
I would fulfill my function that I may be happy.
Then devote a minute or two to considering your function and the happiness and release it will bring you. Let related thoughts come freely, for your heart will recognize these words, and in your mind is the awareness they are true. Should your attention wander, repeat the idea and add:
I would remember this because I want to be happy.

The Way To Transmute Karma
We come to you to help. A thought from you, a prayer, a hope, and your brethren know and are with you; but we cannot take away from you your freewill, nor rob you of your experience; we cannot free you from your karmic debts. You must accept for payment debts that you incurred, and sweetly surrender yourselves to the infinite love of God. But we can assure you that your karma can be softened by the love of the Lord Christ. You can work out your lessons joyfully. This is the way to transmute karma. As soon as you have learnt the lesson your karma is meant to teach you, it will fall away; it will no longer exist.
