THERE IS AN INSPIRATION WITHIN ME THAT GUIDES ME ARIGHT
The Texts of Taoism
The disciple John tells us that “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” Wonderful indeed is this conception of the union of all life, which Jesus proclaimed in the ecstasy of his illumination, “I and the Father are one.” All cause and all effect proceed from the invisible Spirit. Man is one with this Spirit and cannot be separated from It. His word has power because his word is the action of God through his thought.
I now clarify my vision, purify my thought, so that it becomes a mirror reflecting inspiration direct from the secret place of the Most High, at the center of my own being. I do this by quiet contemplation, not through strenuous effort but by learning to fast upon the affirmations of spiritual realization. I know that I need never to break before the onslaught of any confusion that exists around me. Today I walk in the light of God’s Love. All the creativity, all the power and all the joy that there is in the universe finds outlet through me. There is a song in my heart, the song of the open road that leads to complete fulfillment. And as I travel along this road with others, I find that my hand is in theirs. I have confidence in Life, confidence in myself, because I first have confidence in God, the living Spirit.
Today I am guided and my guidance is multiplied. I know exactly what to do and exactly how to do it. There is an inspiration within me which governs every act, every thought, in certainty, with conviction and in peace. I know that the key that unlocks the treasure house, the key to the Kingdom of God, is in my spiritual hand. This is the key to the Kingdom of God’s creation, and is directly experienced by me today.
