I was reminded that when there’s a perception of lack that the ego encourages us to become defensive, to protect what is ours, or to push people out of the way to get our share. Several times I had to remind myself that ‘in my defencelessness my safety lies.’

I remember reading Ghandi’s autobiography. There was a part where things were escalating rapidly and someone asked him what he was going to do to make sure everything got done. He replied ‘we need to meditate more.’ It was something I could relate this lesson to. In silence and humility I seek God’s glory, which for me means, doing what I’m here to do, and not getting stressed because it seems to be going as quickly as I’d like
