For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from Him - (Ps 62:5)

It is great progress along our path of Truth when we are able to leave our needs and problems in God's hands. It is even greater progress when we resist our tendency to go back to see whether God has attended to them.

The unfolding of Good in our lives needs the channels in our minds and hearts to be open. We achieve this by cheerfully getting on with our lives and stilling our tendency to return to our problems. Simple affirmations like "Peace, be still" or "It is done," repeated as often as necessary, will help us. Even simpler is the orthodox ending to prayer, "Amen", which means "So be it."

Do not think that prayerful supplication is your main task in Truth, for God knows what you need. The great task is to accept that God is Good alone and that He longs to express Himself through you as your highest good.
