In quietness and confidence shall be your strength – Is. 30:15
All agitation is destructive of good. All calm is constructive of good, and at the same time destructive of evil.
When man wants evil destroyed so often he rushes into action. It is wrong. First be still and know that I am God. Then act only as I tell you. Always calm with God. Calm is trust in action. Only trust, perfect trust can keep one calm.
Never be afraid of any circumstances or difficulties that help you to cultivate this calm. As the world, to attain, has to learn speed, you, to attain, have to learn calm. All great work for me is done first in the individual soul of the worker.
