It is not in the material senses, but in love and wisdom that we find spiritual satisfaction. We can say with David, "As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness." To be satisfied we must be regenerated, sanctified, purified. The satisfaction of Spirit overcomes dissatisfaction and self-satisfaction. We cannot know the glory which awaits us until the spiritual senses unfold the light of Life. The gates of hell cannot prevail against the satisfaction of Soul.

We must not begin by thinking our case, our cross, our work, our difficulties, harder than those of our brethren; especially we must not feel that others' advantages have been better than ours. If we begin our journey with such thoughts as these, the mountain of our hope will seem very far away, and the climbing toilsome. We should remember it is mortal mind that makes laws for itself, and self-laws can never interfere with our entrance into the realm of reality. Self-laws can never bind, blind, or divorce us from Spirit. The laws of Spirit are supreme and all-satisfying.
