The Tao is infinite, eternal.
Why is it eternal?
It was never born;
thus it can never die.
Why is it infinite?
It has no desires for itself;
thus it is present for all beings.
The Master stays behind;
that is why she is ahead.
She is detached from all things;
that is why she is one with them.
Because she has let go of herself,
she is perfectly fulfilled.
Tao Te Ching v7
I am a wellspring of joy.
An artesian well reaches the surface with great power when tapped. Pressure allows the water to flow freely. Similarly, when we draw on the deep wellspring of divine joy, we experience a great relief of pressure, even when life seems overwhelming.
We were meant for joy and happiness; we are joyous by nature. Joy does not depend upon any person, condition, or thing. So I choose to move and flow with life’s events, all the while tapping in to my source of inner joy. I take the time to breathe fully and move my attention into my deepest self. The flowing life energy of God nourishes me with bubbling joy that fills me and overflows to others, rippling forth to everyone I meet.
I speak these things in the world so that they may have my joy made complete in themselves.—John 17:13
Our review today will cover these ideas:
I will there be light.
I will use the power of my will today. It is not my will to grope about in darkness, fearful of shadows and afraid of things unseen and unreal. Light shall be my guide today. I will follow it where it leads me, and I will look only on what it shows me. This day I will experience the peace of true perception.
These forms of this idea would be helpful for specific applications:
This cannot hide the light I will to see.
You stand with me in light, [name].
In the light this will look different.
. . . . .
There is no will but God’s.
I am safe today because there is no will but God’s. I can become afraid only when I believe there is another will. I try to attack only when I am afraid, and only when I try to attack can I believe that my eternal safety is threatened. Today I will recognize that all this has not occurred. I am safe because there is no will but God’s.
These are some useful forms of this idea for specific applications:
Let me perceive this in accordance with the Will of God.
It is God’s Will you are His Son, [name], and mine as well.
This is part of God’s Will for me, however I may see it.
