Simplicity

CenteredShe who is centered in the Tao
can go where she wishes, without danger.
She perceives the universal harmony,
even amid great pain,
because she has found peace in her heart.
Music or the smell of good cooking
may make people stop and enjoy.
But words that point to the Tao
seem monotonous and without flavor.
When you look for it, there is nothing to see.
When you listen for it, there is nothing to hear.
When you use it, it is inexhaustible.

Tao Te Ching v35

Spirit and BodySimplicity

I rest in the simplicity of life.

In a world continually growing in technology and complexity, I find respite when I give my time and attention to the simple things in life. Simplicity can be found in nature, in the love shared with family and friends, in the stillness of the Silence, in the unbridled laughter of small children. I give attention to these things because they bring ease and joy into my life.

The challenges of day-to-day responsibilities and commitments can make anyone feel overwhelmed. Making simplicity a priority in my life helps create balance. When I stay connected to the simple things in life, I feel more relaxed. I am more prepared overall to do the things I need to do, and I feel in control.

I make time for simplicity, and I experience more ease in my life.

Strive first for the kingdom of God.—Matthew 6:33

StillnessFor morning and evening review:

Salvation is my only function here.

My function here is to forgive the world for all the errors
I have made. For thus am I released from them
with all the world.

My part is essential to God’s plan for salvation.

I am essential to the plan of God for the salvation of the world.
For He gave me His plan that I might save the world.

On the hour: Salvation is my only function here.

On the half hour: My part is essential to God’s plan for salvation.

Christ Consciousness. . . Is Constant

One-Pointedness

‘Watch and pray’ are not idle words. Follow the light as it breaks in your own heart; obey the voice of your inner spirit, do those things which you know are right.
