"The struggle is in the mind. We must bury our own monsters and stop condemning people. We are all Christ and Hitler. We want Christ to win. We're trying to make Christ's message contemporary. What would he have done if he had advertisements, records, films, TV and newspapers! Christ made miracles to tell his message. Well, the miracle today is communications, so let's use it."-John Lennon
The more I learn, of less I am certain, except for the need to remain open to the Mystery we call God;
Creator of unfathomable diversity Artist of intricate details who crafted verdant mountains where fragile flowers dwell who designed the ocean depths and no human eyes have yet to read their deepest tales.
So it is with us; unknown realities within The Divine indwells; thirstily seeking us as we search hungrily for what we desire to possess; Peace of mind and life to the full.
So many voices in the world striving to convince, when all that really matters is the peace that can be within;
Begins with Detachment from outcome, just do your best.
When one lets go of the need to control and to self-defend When one has a heart for the poor and oppressed When one seeks and sees The Divine within all creatures and events When one trusts The Holy is in control-although the daily news denies it. When one accepts The Other has a plan and desires to find it. When one comes to understand The Eternal Mystery is more than any concept And welcomes the diversity of men rather than deny them.

When one accepts we will not stand on any accomplishment, But on our motives and the love that drives it.
When one is aware that evil as well as good cut through every human heart And learns to make friends with silence The Light is ever present to guide us.
Silent time in nature is as necessary as bread Prayer is poetry and service her manifestation.
To forgive is divine and necessary to be divinely forgiven. And therein lies the peace that passes all understanding.
And every drop of dew are but tears from heaven, Shed each day a new, For me, for you For what we did and did not do To help bring in The Kingdom.
And the Kingdom comes from above and it comes from within.
IMAGINE a kingdom of sisterhood of all nations and all men.
