My teachings are easy to understand
and easy to put into practice.
Yet your intellect will never grasp them,
and if you try to practice them, you’ll fail.
My teachings are older than the world.
How can you grasp their meaning?
If you want to know me,
look inside your heart.
Tao Te Ching v70
The door to my good is opening now. I look forward to greater blessings.
A television game show invites contestants to choose door number one, two, or three to receive a prize. The choices I make in life will not be that simple. There is no magic door to a reward. I do know that I can choose to live as God intended me to—happy, healthy, prosperous, and free. This is my true prize.
To choose well, I surrender myself to God. I release personal biases or preconceived ideas and become an open vessel of divine wisdom and insight. I do not worry about the timing or the context of the answers I receive—I trust the outcome. I know that with God, the right door will be revealed at the right time and I will walk through it with faith and confidence.
I know your works. Look, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut.—Revelation 3:8
My mind holds only what I think with God.
I will accept Atonement for myself.
Only salvation can be said to cure.

. . . Is Calm, Quiet And Steady
Beneath The Clamour Of The World
You long for peace. You think of peace as being goodwill towards each other, goodwill among nations, the laying down of arms. But peace is far more than this, it can only be understood and realized within your heart. It lies beneath all the turmoil and noise and clamour of the world, beneath feelings, beneath thought. It is found in the deep, deep silence and stillness of the soul. It is spirit: it is God.
