waiting... a different perspective

In due course, we shall come back to the point: Time cannot take us out of time, as space cannot take us out of space. All you get by waiting is more waiting. Absolute perfection is here and now, not in some future, near or far. The secret is in action-here and now. It is your behavior that binds you to yourself. Disregard whatever you think yourself to be and act as if you were absolutely perfect-- whatever your idea of perfection may be. All you need is courage.

My grace is telling you now: look within. All you need, you have. Use it. Behave as best you know, do what you think you should. Don't be afraid of mistakes; you can always correct them; only intentions matter. The shape things take is not within your power: the motives of your actions are.

(1897 – 1981)
