From our Exchanges

Multitudes in our own day, as in all the past, are "seeking rest and finding none" in many of the most agreeable pursuits of life. Disappointments come when the aim is not realized. We need to understand, amid all such disappointments, that an inner spirit that sets us in open and intimate and constant relations with the brightest and best side of the world we live in, is a sure source of repose and peace. There are many things in which we find pleasure that so happily fill the time as to make us forget the passing hours. But this forgetfulness does not bring what we need. The one supreme source of repose and peace to the soul that has entered into the higher sphere is the gift of the spirit of God, that sufficeth its deepest want, proffers a divine companionship, and makes it sensible of its greatness and sure of its immortality. In God is our rest; because in Him do we find the goal of our aspirations and the crown of our hopes. He is our life; He is our portion; He is our exceeding joy. God is our home and our heaven. Apart from the Infinite Life we are in a restless and despairing orphanage; while in oneness and love, and a constant presence of Him in the soul, a true content and a profound gladness shall arise, as the fruits of the earth grow and ripen in the summer's sun. Great peace have they that love God's law. Greater peace have they that dwell in that inner calm of the universe in which God Himself is revealed.
