A long time ago, I mean at least 10, but probably 15 years ago, my mother gave me a quote. She doesn’t remember but I’m sure she gave it to me because it’s on the cream paper she always uses and in the font she always types in.
I have been searching for this quote for YEARS. Since the breakdown of my marriage I think.
Tonight, 2nd January I found it. It’s by Emmet Fox, who I confess I’ve never investigated before and I haven’t really now. All I know is, I know this quote to be true. I know that my hearts desire is the quiet whispering from the universe and the infinite intelligence. This is not the knowing born of facts and figures, it’s the knowing born of complete wholeheartedly feeling it to be true.
Here is the quote. I hope you find it as powerful as I always do.
Already in your past life from time to time, God has whispered into your heart just that very wonderful thing, whatever it is, that He is wishing you to be, and to do and to have. And that wonderful thing is nothing less than what is called Your Heart’s Desire. Nothing less than that. The most secret, sacred wish that lies deep down at the bottom of your heart, the wonderful thing that you hardly dare to look at, or to think about – the thing that you would rather die than have anyone else know of, because it seems to be so far beyond anything that you are, or have at the present time, that you fear that you will be cruelly ridiculed if the mere thought of it were known – that is just the very thing that God is wishing you to do or to be for Him. And the birth of that marvellous wish in your soul – the dawning of that secrect dream – was the Voice of God Himself telling you to arise and come up higher because He had need of you.
