Having grasped this idea, the new orientation was not difficult. There was in it too much solace to allow for its being difficult. If I state the results, it is once more not because I consider them important to anyone but myself, but only because they became the starting point of a new advance in the conquest of fear.

Within forty-eight hours, with no action on my part except the Metanoia, the change in my point of view, all misunderstandings had been cleared away. The other side had taken the entire initiative, and I making no advance whatever toward them. A telegram expressing their hearty goodwill was followed by an interview, after which I was at work again. I have not only worked easily ever since but with such fecundity that one plan is always formed before I have its predecessor off my hands. This says nothing of the quality of my work, which, humble as it may be, is simply the best I know how to do. I refer only to its abundance. I have found that in “working together with God”, I am less involved in conflicts of wills than I was before, and that the words of Amos are literally fulfilled to me, “that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed.” I say it without knocking on wood, and with no fear, lest my “good luck” will be withdrawn, that from that time to this I have had plenty of work which I have accomplished happily, and have never lacked a market for my modest wares.
