Tao of Yeshua: Chapter 10

Can you cling to the One to harmonize your spirit and physical self?
Can you focus so your breath relieves tension, as an infant’s?
Can you cleanse your inner vision to see yourself clearly?
Can you love the people and rule a state without clever manipulation?
Can you humbly accept when Heaven gives and takes away?
Can you remain detached and inactive when enlightened and seeing far in all directions?
When you produce and rear:
Produce but do not claim the result.
Work but do not rely on the result.
Grow but do not control.
This is hidden virtue.

Yeshua asks us to let him care for us.
Our spirit, body, and concerns are in his care.
By accepting, we increase in perception, selfless love, humility, and stability.
Again he asks us what we strive for and worry about.
Only if our gain, work, and growth are his will they last eternally.
