Living into the future

First, however, everything that remains of the old will have to be reduced to nothingness. The clouds will have to gather round the human being, and we have to find our freedom – find our own power, our whole strength – out of this nothingness.
Outer material need will change into soul need, and out of this deep need of the soul will vision be born.

We must tear up by the roots every trace of fear and shrinking of what comes towards us out of the future. All our feelings must be permeated with calm and confidence. We must look forward with absolute equanimity to all that may come and think only that whatever happens, happens under a cosmic guidance that is full of wisdom.

Our part is to do what is right in each moment as it comes, and leave everything else to the future. That indeed is the lesson that we have to learn in our time, to live out of pure trust, without any security of existence, trust in the ever present help of the spiritual world.
Truly nothing else will do if our courage is not to fail us. Let us then take hold of our will and let us seek the awakening from within,
every morning and every evening.
