|"What is abandonment? It is forgetting your past; it is leaving the future in His hands; it is devoting the present fully and completely to your Lord. Abandonment is being satisfied with the present moment, no matter what the moment contains. You are satisfied because you know that whatever that moment has, it contains - in that instant - God's eternal plan for you."|
"Abandonment is casting off all your cares. Abandonment is dropping all your
needs. This includes spiritual needs. Let me repeat that, for it is not easily
grasped. Abandonment is laying aside, forever, all of your spiritual needs."
Jeanne Guyon from Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ
