' Achieving Peace '...
Those who look for advancement by looking for inner experiences or for discoveries of new truth do well.
But they need to understand that all this is still personal, still something that concerns the ego even if it be the highest and best part of the ego.
Their greatest advance will be made when they cease holding the wish to make any advance at all, cease this continual looking at themselves, and instead come to a quiet rest in the simple fact that God is, until they live in this fact alone.
That will transfer their attention from self to Overself and keep them seeing its presence in everyone's life and its action in every event.
The more they succeed in holding to this insight, the less will they ever be troubled or afraid or perplexed again; the more they recognize and rest in the divine character, the less will they be feverishly concerned about their own spiritual future.
