The seed of greatness is sown in an instant, but in this world of ours everything great takes time to grow. This means that patience, mingled with persistence, is the special nutriment that sustains all things great. Therefore, should we wish to win the Great Life, we need only add equal measures of quiet watchfulness to our spiritual willingness and a Great Goodness cannot help but flourish within us.
Guy Finley talks about how we currently live from an agitated nature that searches for “peace” through its own frenzied activity. Our awareness of this fact is what seeds within us a new relationship with real peace.
