I am the Lord, I change not.

Malachi 3:6

The Tao, considered as unchanging has no name.

Texts of Taoism

Immovable (is) God alone, and rightly (He) alone; for He Himself is in Himself, and by Himself, and round Himself, completely full and perfect.  Thrice-Greatest Hermes  

We should realize that all the great scriptures have taught one identical message – the unity of good. All the sacred books have been inspired by the one Mind.  Each in its own tongue has told the story of Reality.  “I am the Lord, I change not,” was revealed to the Hebrew mystic.  To the great Chinese sage came the same message, “The Tao cannot change, it has no name,” and to Hermes, God is in Himself, by Himself, full and perfect.  If we can add to this glorified conception the realization that this Divine Being is the breath of our breath, omnipresent, forever within us, then we shall realize that we live in one eternal and perfect Mind.  An excerpt from the sacred books on the attributes of God says, “There is no variableness in God since He is eternal, immortal and infinite.  Never-the-less He is that from which every transformation arises.”  This means that, while we live in the Eternal which does not change, we are forever drawing from It, or from Him, the possibility of the manifold expressions which give variety to existence and which make living interesting.

I know that the Changeless abides with me.  I am calm and peaceful in the midst of confusion.  I know that nothing moves the soul.  Peace, infinite peace, is at the center of my being.  I love, move and have my being in That which is perfect, complete within Itself.  That Self is my self.
