Now, when the thought of doing good has arisen in a man’s mind, though the good be not yet done, the good Spirits are in attendance on him.

The Texts of Taoism 

After long meditation and much deep reflection, having passed through the confusion of human experience, Job finally arrived at the conclusion that the Spirit of God was within him and that the breath of God was his life.  We all have traveled this same pathway of experience, the journey of the soul to “the heights above,” and always there has been a deep inquiry in our minds – What is it all about?  Does life make sense?  What is the meaning of birth, human experience and the final transition from this plane which we call death?  Somewhere along the line we too must exclaim with Job, “The spirit of God hath made me and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.”  Nothing can be nearer to us than that which is the very essence of our own being.  Our external search after Reality culminates in the greatest of all possible discoveries – Reality is at the center of our own being; life is from within out.

I feel that my search is over.  I feel that I have discovered the Great Reality.  I am not evolving into it, I am merely awakening to the realization of what it means.  There is but one Life.  This Life I am living.  Today I speak this Reality into every experience I have.  Today I see Him reflected in every form, back of every   countenance, moving in every act.

This is my deliberate choice.  This is my secret desire.  This is the sole ambition of my heart and mind and soul, that I shall walk with God, and walking with God, that I shall so manifest His nature that everything around me shall be blessed.
