From the Manual for Teachers...

Well, I wanted to post a quote from the section in the Manual called, WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF GOD'S TEACHERS? My current favorite is:

VIII. Patience:

Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait, and wait without anxiety. Patience is natural to the teacher of God. All he sees is certain outcome, at a time perhaps unknown to him as yet, but not in doubt. The time will be as right as is the answer. And this is true for everything that happens now or in the future. The past as well held no mistakes; nothing that did not serve to benefit the world, as well as him to whom it seemed to happen. Perhaps it was not understood at the time. Even so, the teacher of God is willing to reconsider all his past decisions, if they are causing pain to anyone. Patience is natural to those who trust. Sure of the ultimate interpretation of all things in time, no outcome already seen or yet to come can cause them fear.

  1. Text p 88 (5:VI:12:1)
    Infinite patience produces immediate effects.

    The immediate effect is peace of mind!
