Light or Darkness

BellowsThe Tao doesn’t take sides;
it gives birth to both good and evil.
The Master doesn’t take sides;
she welcomes both saints and sinners.
The Tao is like a bellows:
it is empty yet infinitely capable.
The more you use it, the more it produces;
the more you talk of it, the less you understand.
Hold on to the center.

Beneath the ClamorFree

I am a free and spiritual being. I have unlimited potential.

Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” One fundamental truth I know is that I am a spiritual being, now and always. I am a child of God being divinely guided every moment of every day.

As God’s beloved, I am free to overlook past mistakes or regrets and move forward in peace. I am free to live each day with a deepening faith and an awareness of God as my guide, my healer, and my supplier.

I am grateful that I am never alone, for God is always with me. This truth allows me the freedom to set dreams and goals and to know they are within my reach. I am free to move forward on a divinely guided path—one that is mine alone to create and to follow. I do so now, with God’s ever-present direction and love.

Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you.—Proverbs 4:25

Today’s review will cover these ideas:

MeaninglessMy grievances hide the light of the world in me.

My grievances show me what is not there, and hide from me what I would see. Recognizing this, what do I want my grievances for? They keep me in darkness and hide the light. Grievances and light cannot go together, but light and vision must be joined for me to see. To see, I must lay grievances aside. I want to see, and this will be the means by which I will succeed.

Specific applications for this idea might be made in these forms:

Let me not use this as a block to sight.
The light of the world will shine all this away.
I have no need for this. I want to see.

. . . . .

Overcoming EgotismMy salvation comes from me.

Today I will recognize where my salvation is. It is in me because its Source is there. It has not left its Source, and so it cannot have left my mind. I will not look for it outside myself. It is not found outside and then brought in. But from within me it will reach beyond, and everything I see will but reflect the light that shines in me and in itself.

These forms of the idea are suitable for more specific applications:

Let this not tempt me to look away from me for my salvation.
I will not let this interfere with my awareness of the Source of my salvation.
This has no power to remove salvation from me.
