What is rooted is easy to nourish.
What is recent is easy to correct.
What is brittle is easy to break.
What is small is easy to scatter.
Prevent trouble before it arises.
Put things in order before they exist.
The giant pine tree
grows from a tiny sprout.
The journey of a thousand miles
starts from beneath your feet.
Rushing into action, you fail.
Trying to grasp things, you lose them.
Forcing a project to completion,
you ruin what was almost ripe.
Therefore the Master takes action
by letting things take their course.
He remains as calm
at the end as at the beginning.
He has nothing,
thus has nothing to lose.
What he desires is non-desire;
what he learns is to unlearn.
He simply reminds people
of who they have always been.
He cares about nothing but the Tao.
Thus he can care for all things.
Tao Te Ching v64
God is my source. I am prosperous.
God is the fulfillment of my every need. Fulfilling relationships, good health, and financial wealth are blessings from my divine source.
Wherever there is a need in my life, I turn to God in prayer. I release any fear or doubt that arises from perceived lack. With faith and assurance, I affirm: God is my source. Nothing and no one can keep me from my good. My spiritual health is not determined by any physical diagnosis. My financial status is not dependent upon a paycheck or any outside agency. The loving spirit of God is the very substance of all my good. I give thanks in advance knowing my highest good is unfolding now.
The Lord will open for you his rich storehouse, the heavens, to give the rain of your land in its season and to bless all your undertakings.—Deuteronomy 28:12
My mind holds only what I think with God.
There is no love but God’s.
The world I see holds nothing that I want.

Have you ever thought what forgiveness means? You, your own self, you own personality, needs your forgiveness. Your spirit is divine, but until you have overcome, your personality remains human and needs the forgiveness of your spirit. As you forgive, as your spirit forgives your personality, so also will you learn to forgive your brother man for all his seeming errors. If you will train yourself to think in terms of love and forgiveness every moment of your life, a most beautiful healing will take place in you.
