“For most of us, whether our desires are tangible or intangible objects, noble or ignoble pursuits, one thing is certain – we want to obtain them immediately. We are like young infants who demand our milk bottles with great urgency. If the bottles are kept from our mouths for a mere moment, we will wail in protest. In order to keep harmony, the mother must acquiesce to the baby’s whims and adjust her needs to fit the infant’s timing.
Unlike the human mother, our Divine Maker insists that we, his children, learn to fine tune our understanding of HIS timing. We must learn to accept that the Creator gives according to his own schedule, regardless of our demands. When you learn God’s timing, you learn how to live and work in harmony with yourself and others around you. Most importantly, you understand the art of communion with the silent voice of the Universal Will.”
Chin-Ning Chu, in “Thick Face, Black Heart”
