October 19 Echoes of Eternity
For all the Athenians which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell or to hear some new thing.
Truth is a spring of living water. It does not grow stale nor hackneyed, even though the verbal expressions may seem time-worn. Truth carries life-giving properties for the soul, and without these properties the soul languishes and shrivels. Cherish and hunger for truth, My child, for it shall make you free. Whether it be pleasant or bitter, its effect is health-bringing.
Many souls run shipwreck in their pursuit of new thoughts and ideas. They lose their devotion to the truth they have once known. They are fascinated and dazzled by the entertaining effects of newness and surprise. Be careful in your seeking to hold on to the truth that I have entrusted to you. Beware boredom, for it is a sign that you are seeking a false goal—something that will crowd out the good entrusted to you. Don’t worry about being original. Let Me take care of that!
