It is a deliberate choice, an ordering of priorities.
Sister Wendy Beckett
I've been pondering the subject of peace lately. Sister Wendy
Beckett says true peace and inner tranquility do not depend on
anything external, but wholly come from an inner balance between
desire and potential. Hmm. But, isn't it a healthy thing to continue
to strive for personal growth and development?
Here's the amazing point she makes. "Our spirit is too great for
small and specific happinesses: our potential is infinite. The secret
of peace is determining where this infinitude is, and here is where
the need for balance becomes paramount."
Now, I need to find my particular little mysterious spot of balanced
infinitude. How do you harmonize desire and potential?
