Now

My Treasrue House is FullExpress yourself completely,
then keep quiet.
Be like the forces of nature:
when it blows, there is only wind;
when it rains, there is only rain;
when the clouds pass, the sun shines through.
If you open yourself to the Tao,
you are at one with the Tao
and you can embody it completely.
If you open yourself to insight,
you are at one with insight
and you can use it completely.
If you open yourself to loss,
you are at one with loss
and you can accept it completely.
Open yourself to the Tao,
then trust your natural responses;
and everything will fall into place.

I value every moment.

If we are doing something we enjoy, time seems to speed by. The opposite can also be true: If we are watching the clock, time may crawl. With either scenario, are we living fully in each moment, grateful for each opportunity to be blessed and a blessing?

Each moment of our lives is a gift from God. As we go through this day, let us determine to treat each moment as a divine appointment. Rather than dreading the tasks on our to-do list, we can approach them with attitudes of joy and expectation, knowing that we bless ourselves when we give our best effort.

Every day of our lives is a blessing. Centered in God, we recognize that we have enough time to accomplish more than we ever dreamed and that every moment holds opportunity.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.—Ecclesiastes 3:1

TreasuresGod, being Love, is also happiness.

Happiness is an attribute of love. It cannot be apart from it. Nor can it be experienced where love is not. Love has no limits, being everywhere. And therefore joy is everywhere as well. Yet can the mind deny that this is so, believing there are gaps in love where sin can enter, bringing pain instead of joy. This strange belief would limit happiness by redefining love as limited, and introducing opposition in what has no limit and no opposite.

Fear is associated then with love, and its results become the heritage of minds that think what they have made is real. These images, with no reality in truth, bear witness to the fear of God, forgetting being Love, He must be joy. This basic error we will try again to bring to truth today, and teach ourselves:

God, being Love, is also happiness.
To fear Him is to be afraid of joy.

Begin your periods of practicing today with this association, which corrects the false belief that God is fear. It also emphasizes happiness belongs to you, because of what He is.

Allow this one correction to be placed within your mind each waking hour today. Then welcome all the happiness it brings as truth replaces fear, and joy becomes what you expect to take the place of pain. God, being Love, it will be given you. Bolster this expectation frequently throughout the day, and quiet all your fears with this assurance, kind and wholly true:

God, being Love, is also happiness.
And it is happiness I seek today.
I cannot fail, because I seek the truth.

Christ Consciousness. . . Is Constant

Focus Heart And Mind On God

The one sustenance, the great sustaining power all mankind can receive, is strength from God. If you are sick in body, weary in mind, despondent and hopeless, turn your thoughts away from yourself. Turn your thoughts and prayers and your praise to God; focus your whole heart and mind upon God. Never waiver, never falter, hold fast to belief in the Great White Spirit; and in God’s light you will find that every need of your life will be met.
