TAKE NO THOUGHT
In order to be at one with any form of good, it becomes necessary first of all to become one (consciously one) with the Source of all being. Without taking thought of what we shall eat, what we shall drink and wherewithal we
shall be clothed, by seeking the Kingdom of God, conscious oneness with our Source, we are at one with the Infinite Wisdom that already knows our need and the Divine Love whose pleasure it is to give us the Kingdom.
Therefore, we no longer live by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit. If you undertake a spiritual study, you have only your own state of consciousness, your own state of intelligence with which to succeed. But, if you first tune into the Infinite Invisible, the Source of all Being, God, you then have the Mind of God, the Wisdom of God, the Love of God, the Life of God,
so that you can say with Paul, “I live, yet not I, Christ liveth my Life”.
In this moment of silent communion with Thee,
O Lord, a still small silent voice speaks in the depth
of my spirit.
It speaks to me of the things I must do to attain
holy kinship with Thee and to grow
in the likeness of Thee.
I must do my allotted task with unflagging faithfulness
even though the eye of no taskmaster is on me.
I must be gentle in the face of ingratitude
or when slander distorts my noblest motives.
I must come to the end of each day with a feeling
that I have used its gifts gratefully
and faced its trials bravely.
O Lord, help me to be ever more like Thee,
holy for Thou art holy,
Loving for Thou art love.
Speak to me, then, Lord, as I seek Thee again and again
in the stillness of meditation, until Thy bidding
shall at last become for me a hallowed discipline,
a familiar way of life.
