The Flawless Life
We may feel saddened or bewildered by a turn of events. Yet even when our spirits are low, we need only look to the Christ within us to feel strengthened, comforted, and renewed in faith and courage.
Through the power of our inner Christ Spirit, we have the strength to meet any challenge. We have divine wisdom and understanding. Peace and well-being are ours. There is no pain in the world that the indwelling Spirit cannot reach and heal.
Within our souls, we find enduring comfort and hope in God’s infinite good. We feel a resurgence of faith and courage, as we are filled with love for life and the will to go on.

To me, Fearless is not the absense of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, Fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death.

As is the human body, So is the cosmic body. As is the human mind, So is the common mind. As is the microcosm, So is the macrocosm. As is the atom, So is the universe.

It is said that God has created man in his own image. But it may be that humankind has created God in the image of humankind.

On a quiet morning, when the wind is calm, a mountain lake is still and serene. Calm is the natural state of the waters just as peaceful stillness is my natural state of being.
If I feel agitated by conditions in the outer world, I remember that beyond the waves of anxiety or doubt, there is a reservoir of peace.
I may not be able to quiet the activity of others, but I can quiet my own. I slow down and take a meditative pause. I inhale and exhale with the intention of soothing my state of mind. I don’t deny difficulty, but I aim to address it with calm serenity.
I return to my natural state of inner stillness. True peace is found within me. I allow that peace to guide my words and actions.
