All streams flow to the sea
because it is lower than they are.
Humility gives it its power.
If you want to govern the people,
you must place yourself below them.
If you want to lead the people,
you must learn how to follow them.
The Master is above the people,
and no one feels oppressed.
She goes ahead of the people,
and no one feels manipulated.
The whole world is grateful to her.
Because she competes with no one,
no one can compete with her.
Tao Te Ching v66
I am divinely guided and protected wherever I travel.
Wherever I am and whatever my next destination, I travel with a positive perspective. I thoroughly enjoy the journey because I feel a sense of deep peace and security that comes from trusting in Spirit.
Relying on the indwelling Spirit as my protector and my guide does not mean that I ignore basic safety measures when I travel. To the contrary, being grounded in Spirit means that I make appropriate preparations for my trip, guided by my innate wisdom.
Staying steeped in an awareness of Spirit’s omnipresent love also means that, when the unexpected occurs, I react out of faith and calm rather than out of fear and anxiety. Wherever I go, I feel totally safe and secure because I trust in the wisdom and love of God within me.
The human mind plans the way, but the Lord directs the steps.—Proverbs 16:9
My mind holds only what I think with God.
No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth.
I loose the world from all I thought it was.

Respect Your Brother
The true Light is a gentle love which, rising in you, causes you to look on the world with understanding and compassion and respect. When you respect the soul of your brother man you respect life in every way. This gentle spirit, this respect for one another, must come. For this is the generation of the one true Light, and this true Light is that of love.
