Try to rest in the knowledge that many unseen forces are working diligently on your behalf and that truth, like a flower, opens in its own time. Right now, you are observing the bud. It is beautiful in its own way, as is every stage of the blooming process. Observing a bud for the very first time, one would never suspect what it will become. Your mind is also a bud. You have no comprehension of all that you don’t know. Make no judgments regarding all that you have to consider right now. Wait for the bloom to appear.
