“Doubt is one of the most common states experienced by humanity, and it knows no discretion in who it choose to afflict. We doubt ourselves, our lovers, our workmates, and ultimately, we doubt the universal and divine power. In this way, said Teresa, we stop the magnitude of the beloved working in our lives and fall back into relying on ourselves to work out the solutions. If we did not doubt, the solution would automatically be supplied, but this concept is difficult for the mind to fully grasp. Being a people of little patience, we demand the answer now and are not prepared to wait for the natural unfolding of the situation.”
Megan Don, in “Meditations with Teresa of Avila”
