“The end of illusion is very near when the mind reaches this following point. When any mind looks out upon its creations that it has attempted to make of itself and finds all of it lacking—that something is missing—and when that mind simply decides to withdraw the value it has placed on the world, and rests into the simple desire to be with God, then Heaven is but a step away. And that final step is taken by your Creator for you.” (“The Way of Transformation,” The Way of Mastery, Chapter 19, Page 233)
When we are unfulfilled in this world, then we can know that something more is needed. Oh, of course, we have flights of fancy that everything is alright. But when we know in our heart of hearts that something is missing, we need to re-surrender to God’s direction. He sets us straight, and this ultimately becomes Awakening. After Awakening, nothing but shines and shines constantly. Our down times don’t seem as down, our happy times seem happier. If something seems lacking, what we really need to do is turn to a Higher Power. The old advice is the best.
