What is the way out?

"For the past few days I have been experimenting in a more complete surrender than ever before. I am taking, by deliberate act of the will, enough time from each hour to give God much thought. . . . You will object to this intense introspection. Do not try it, unless you feel dissatisfied with your own relationship with God, but at least allow me to realize all the leadership of God I can. I am disgusted with the pettiness and futility of my unled self. If the way out is not more perfect slavery to God, then what is the way out?"
