So, there are two things to remember. First, we are incapable of judging what the result ought to be. If we put our trust in the divine, if we say… If we say, “Good, I am going to give everything, everything, all I can give, effort, concentration, and it is he who will judge what has to be given in exchange … or even whether anything should be given in exchange, and I myself do not know what the result should be.” Before having transformed anything in ourselves, are we quite sure of the direction, the way, the form that this transformation should take? — Not at all. Hence it is only our imagination and generally we greatly limit and make altogether petty, mean, superficial, relative the result we want. We do not know what the result can truly be, what it ought to be. We know it later. When it comes, when the change takes place, then if we look back, we say: “Ah! That’s it, it was to this I was moving!” — But one knows it only later. Before that one has only vague imaginations which are quite superficial and childish in comparison with the true progress, the real transformation • A spontaneous act, done because one cannot do otherwise and done as an offering of good will, is the only one which is truly valuable
