"Even mystics have admitted that the search for God, for the absolute, is a long, disappointing one and that they have felt they were groping in the dark. And it’s true, sometimes it seems as if you are struggling in the void, but that’s only how it seems, and you shouldn’t become discouraged.

I’ll give you an example. A man digs a well so he can have water to quench his thirst. He doesn’t know how deep he will have to dig to find it, and this uncertainty could leave him discouraged. But he has an image, a likeness, of this water in his head, heart and soul. He lives with the idea, the thought, the hope, of obtaining this water, and even if the water is not yet flowing from a physical spring, at least it is flowing within him. In the same way, those who look for God may seem to find nothing, and yet they are working with a very powerful reality that lives inside them. They can say to themselves, ‘I’ve not really found God yet, of course, but he’s manifesting through my thoughts, feelings and wishes.’ And this hope, this faith is, in itself, God."
