Lightening Flashes

“You look back at a certain moment which changed everything. But “moment” is too long a word; was it a period of time at all? There came a thunder clap. But no, thunder may rumble for two or three seconds. This was a lightening flash cleaving straight across the road on which you walked. You shut your eyes instinctively; when you opened them the road looked different. And it was different. Nothing will ever be again as it was before that lightening flash. This, and this, and this you will never do again. And the road will grow duller and darker with every mile you go–is that your thought?

A voice speaks within you:

‘Things will never be as they were before? This is true; for they will be better.

‘You will never do this and this again? That is true; for I have other things for you to do.

‘They are not what you would choose? But they are indeed the best that Love can choose for you to do. . . .’

‘You have nothing to do, now, but to please Me.’
