“When you feel worried, sit down, relax, take a deep breath, connect with the desire, and wait for the answer. The answer to desire will be given in due time and in perfect form. Someone will knock on the door and bring you the solution, or a situation will be unlocked, or a successful idea will come, or simply the problem will be otherwise resolved.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 3:I
This good outcome is what happens when we pray with anticipation and a quiet mind. I have found that some things that bother me have never found their way into my prayers. And that is why the Answer may be a long time in coming.
If we articulate a need, the solution is found with the problem. This tenet is part of A Course in Miracles. I have found it to be very true. Notice that there is no time delay. Time delay is not always needed, particularly if we ourselves hold all the keys to the Answer. Sometimes we just have to get ourselves and our worries toned down, and all will be well.
I notice that Jesus says here that we are to sit down, relax, take a deep breath. Is this not common sense? But how many of us do this, consistently? We might get answers to our prayers more readily if we prepared ourselves as he describes.
If the Answer seems long in coming, know that there is a reason that we cannot fathom. God Himself does not like delay; He works fast, once we know what we are really asking.
Focus on the questions for which we need Answers. And give a prayer of thanks when the Answers come.
