What words of greater comfort, sweeter compassion or tenderer love and understanding could ever be whispered forth into expression? “Be still and Know.”
Beloved, let this day be to you a new day, a moment in your experience in which, if you are believing in fear and doubt, loss and separation, suddenly there opens to you a marvelous transparency of vision, when you hear the Voice of your own Soul; when you see the wonder of Life divine.
What woe cold not be hushed, what pain could not be appeased, what lack could not be satisfied by the loving acceptance of these inspiring words – “Be still and know.” Into the daily life of us all comes the need that mental storms, or turmoil, should be silenced; that the waves of fear, or the darkness of despondency be rebuked; that the mighty vision of Insight should be our refuge or our release.
Therefore the joy of certain Victory is yours. Sense is delivered from its nightmare of bondage, and its deliverer is the Truth. If before you rolls the Red Sea, if around you thunders the tempest and the uproar of dashing waves, even then be still and know that You are “The Way,” – You are the uncovered, dry land over which You shall walk to victory, to triumph and glory. Though the waters may look turbulent, angry and threatening, yet beyond, before your vision lies the Promised Land. The Power which separates these waters into a bank on either hand, so that we walk unharmed on solid, dry foundation, is that same Presence in you which bids “Be still and know.”
