certain Peace and true progress . . .

Matthew 11:28-30 (New Living Translation)
28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
Book 3, chapter 23 of the Imitation of Christ (excerpted)

“Always strive, My son, to do another’s will rather than your own. Always choose to have less rather than more. Always seek the lowest place and be submissive in all things. Always desire and pray that God’s will be entirely fulfilled in you. The man who accomplishes all this advances toward peace and rest.” [for more see The Imitation of Christ, Book 3, chapters 23-24]
