can, simply by a sincere aspiration, open a sealed door in
us and find. ..that Something which will change the whole significance
of life, reply to all our questions, solve all our problems
and lead us to the perfection we aspire for without knowing
it, to that Reality which alone can satisfy us and give
us lasting joy, equilibrium, strength, life.
All this you have heard many a time.
You have heard it- Oh! there are even some here who are so used to
it that for them it seems to be the same thing as drinking a glass of water or
opening a window to let in the sunlight.
We have tried a little, but now we are going to try seriously! The
starting point to want it, truly want it, to need it.
The next step:
to think, above all, of that. A day comes, very quickly,
when one is unable to think of anything else.
That is the one thing which counts. And then One formulates one's
aspiration, lets the true prayer spring up from one's heart, the prayer which
expresses the sincerity of the need. And then. well, one will see what happens.
Something will happen. Surely something will happen. For each one it will take
a different form.
