' Once, I said to God '...


Once I said to God, "How do you teach us?"

And he replied

"If
you were
playing chess with someone who
had infinite power and infinite knowledge
and wanted to make you a
master of the game,

where would all the chess
pieces be at
every moment?

Indeed, not only where he wanted them,
but where all were best for your
development;

and that is every situation
of one's
life.


- St. John of the Cross
