The great Tao flows everywhere.
All things are born from it,
yet it doesn’t create them.
It pours itself into its work,
yet it makes no claim.
It nourishes infinite worlds,
yet it doesn’t hold on to them.
Since it is merged with all things
and hidden in their hearts,
it can be called humble.
Since all things vanish into it
and it alone endures,
it can be called great.
It isn’t aware of its greatness;
thus it is truly great.
Tao Te Ching v34
I am blessed as I care for others, and they care for me.
Perhaps the most difficult job anyone can undertake is that of a caregiver. It is a full-time commitment that requires tremendous energy, confidence, and inner strength. Although challenging at times, caregiving is rewarding. Spending quality time with a loved one while sharing moments and memories is priceless.
I give thanks for the caregivers I have known—parents, friends, teachers—and the roles they have played in my life. I give thanks as well for the opportunities I have had to care for others.
Caregiving is an opportunity to share my love and skills in compassionate and caring ways. By giving of myself in this way, I receive unlimited joys and blessings.
You have granted me life and steadfast love, and your care has preserved my spirit.—Job 10:12
For morning and evening review:
I am spirit.
I am the Son of God. No body can contain my spirit,
nor impose on me a limitation God created not.
I will accept my part in God’s plan for salvation.
What can my function be but to accept the Word of God,
Who has created me for what I am and will forever be?
On the hour: I am spirit.
On the half hour: I will accept my part in God’s plan for salvation.
