The ancient Masters
didn’t try to educate the people,
but kindly taught them to not-know.
When they think that they know the answers,
people are difficult to guide.
When they know that they don’t know,
people can find their own way.
If you want to learn how to govern,
avoid being clever or rich.
The simplest pattern is the clearest.
Content with an ordinary life,
you can show all people the way
back to their own true nature.
Tao Te Ching v65
I give thanks for everyone who has come before me.
Today I give thanks for those who have come before me, for the men and women who have served their country to make the world a better place. I honor their memories with prayers of gratitude. I do not have to agree with the premise of war to understand the sacrifice these souls have made.
I also bring to mind family members and friends who have passed from this physical plane, those who have been a special part of my life. These loved ones are still with me in my awareness and in my heart. Our souls are intricately woven together and cannot be separated.
I give thanks for the life I live because others gave of their light, life, and love. Remembering the past, I live in the present and move into the future in a spirit of oneness and peace.
I do not cease to give thanks for you, as I remember you in my prayers.—Ephesians 1:16
My mind holds only what I think with God.
Beyond this world there is a world I want.
It is impossible to see two worlds.

In The Presence Of The Master
In the presence of the Master anger and resentment dissolve; you are filled with peace, overcome with adoration and love. Your consciousness is instantly raised above the pulls and antagonisms of the earthly plane.
