All that you touch,
All that you Change,
The only lasting truth Is Change.
Worship is no good without action. With action, it's only useful if it steadies you, focuses on your efforts, eases your mind.
The universe is God's self-portrait.
“There is no end

“That’s all anybody can do right now. Live. Hold out. Survive. I don’t know whether good times are coming back again. But I know that won’t matter if we don’t survive these times.”
“The world is full of painful stories. Sometimes it seems as though there aren't any other kind and yet I found myself thinking how beautiful that glint of water was through the trees.”
“It’s better to teach people than to scare them, Lauren. If you scare them and nothing happens, they lose their fear, and you lose some of your authority with them. It’s harder to scare them a second time, harder to teach them, harder to win back their trust. Best to begin by teaching.”
“They have no power to improve their lives, but they have the power to make others even more miserable. And the only way to prove to yourself that you have power is to use it.”
“There is no power in having strength and brains, and yet waiting for God to fix things for you or take revenge for you.”
"The Self must create
Its own reasons for being.
To shape God,
“The essentials," I answered, "are to learn to shape God with forethought, care, and work; to educate and benefit their community, their families, and themselves; and to contribute to the fulfillment of the Destiny.”
“God is Change."
