HOW TO PERFORM RIGHT ACTION
(Vernon Howard, The Mystic Path to Cosmic Power)
“Millions of people assume it is enough to seek the Truth. It is not. It is essential to seek in the right way. The right way starts with a right frame of mind, with simple receptivity.
Everything depends upon the way we take the Truth. No other mystical point is more important than this. The seed must fall on fertile, not rocky ground.
The everyday mind misunderstands and distorts mystic principles. Non-action is a good example. Panicky people exclaim, “But we must DO something! It’s foolish to sit around with folded
hands.” This misses the point entirely. Mysticism explains that a panicky man is like a passenger on a reliable ocean liner. The passenger races furiously forward on the deck in order to get himself to port.
If he would stop this panicky action, he would do the right thing, which is calmly see that he need not do anything but let the ship carry him to port.”
