To Find God In Yourselves

 

But every true act, everything that is good and joyful and fruitful on earth, is lived destiny, destiny that has become self. — Hermann Hesse.

In high school, I loved Hesse’s novels. Maybe it is time to reread them and come full cycle. As I prepare the Pew for the Lenten Season, I came across a quote that might be just for you as you start the week:

“In each one of you there is a hidden being, still in the deep sleep of childhood. Bring it to life! In each one of you there is a call, a will, an impulse of nature, an impulse toward the future, the new, the higher. Let it mature, let it resound, nurture it! Your future is not this or that; it is not money or power, it is not wisdom or success at your trade — your future, your hard dangerous path is this: to mature and to find God in yourselves.”

Maybe I should have saved it for Lent for what is the Lenten season but a journey “to find God in yourselves.”

Have a great week.
