‘Sometimes, it is hard to define the will of the Source. I have known men who wished to travel to far lands. They prayed for guidance. Amazingly they found that the Source was guiding them to do just what they wished for. I say amazingly because, in my experience, the Source rarely sends a man where he wants to go. That is part of the sacrifice we make when we serve Him. I do not say it never happens, you understand, for that would be arrogance. No, but when one prays for guidance it should be with an open mind, all thoughts of one’s own desires put aside.
Now the Source very rarely speaks to us directly, and the question is: How do we know what is required? These matters are very complex.’
– The Abbot, to Vintar, The First Chronicles of Druss the Legend
