Truth of L♾V3 ~XXXV~

When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of distress and anxiety.

If I sit in my place of patience, what I need flows to me, without any pain.

From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me, and attracting me; when it cannot attract me anymore to go to it, it has to come to me.

There is a great secret in this for anyone who can grasp it.
