Rest in Him

"Rest in Him and you will be rested. Why do you go off to the rough paths? Where will you go? The good that you love is from Him, but it is good and pleasing only so far as it is considered in relation to Him. But if you abandon Him, the love you direct towards anything that is from Him will be unrighteous, and the object of your love will righteously be bitter to the taste." -- Augustine, "Confessions" (4.12.18)
