some Vernon Howard mojo in The Power of Your Supermind, where he tells us:
“Do not be impatient with your seemingly slow progress.
Do not try to run faster than you presently can.
If you are studying, reflecting and trying, you are making progress whether you are aware of it or not.
A traveler walking the road in the darkness of night is still going forward.
Someday, some way, everything will break open, like the natural unfolding of a rosebud.”
