The man who has met God is not looking for something—he has found it. He is not searching for light—upon him the Light has already shined! . . . He may hear the tin whistle starting every new parade, but he will be cautious. He is waiting for a trumpet note that will call him away from the hurly-burly and set in motion a series of events that will result at last in a new heaven and a new earth. He can afford to wait!
~ A. W. Tozer, [The Attributes of God]
