Some say that my teaching is nonsense.
Others call it lofty but impractical.
But to those who have looked inside themselves,
this nonsense makes perfect sense.
And to those who put it into practice,
this loftiness has roots that go deep.
I have just three things to teach:
simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and in thoughts,
you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.
Tao Te Ching v67
Strength of Spirit
With God, I am strong, confident, and capable.
I am stronger than I may think and more powerful than I may know. This is the truth I affirm as I remind myself that I am a child of God and capable of doing wondrous things.
I become more aware of my strength through my relationship with God. This relationship is an important part of my life. It affects my view of myself and the world in a positive way. It affects my attitude and my expectations. It opens doors to me that I may not have dreamed possible.
I see myself as I truly am—a spiritual being filled with unlimited potential. I know that within me is an unlimited wellspring of energy and wisdom and a continuous resource of ideas and inspiration. I am strong in spirit.
You have given me the shield of your salvation, and your right hand has supported me; your help has made me great.—Psalm 18:35
My mind holds only what I think with God.
I will not value what is valueless.
Let me perceive forgiveness as it is.

Be Patient With Your Days
If you are delayed, if your work, does not seem to be developing as you hoped, do not be despondent or disheartened, but be thankful that you are being trained for greater initiation. No great or good work is ever accomplished without patient preparation. Every detail of the soul’s work must be perfectly done. So be patient with your work, patient with all of the happenings in your daily life, and especially patient with your fellows.
