QUIETNESS

OUR joy in demonstration cannot safely be spoken to those who are not awake to the truth of being. In so speaking we are casting our pearls before that phase of thought which may turn and rend us. Experience teaches us the value of dwelling "in the secret place," and we learn that "in quietness and confidence" is our strength; we discern why there was a holy of holies; why Joseph and Mary were told to take the young child into Egypt; why the Master said, "When thou prayest, enter into the closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret;" and why he said, "See thou tell no man."

To speak out of season, no matter how joyous the words, is to disturb dreamers, and they do not like to be disturbed. The quiet work of constantly separating the tares from the wheat—mortal from immortal thought—is joyous activity, our joy in it is most secure and most helpful when it remains a radiance. The light we reflect in the joy of truth demonstrated will illumine the way for some one who is seeking the Christ-healing.
