"When I speak of love I am not speaking of some sentimental and weak response. I am speaking of that force which all of the great religions have seen as the supreme unifying principle of life. Love is somehow the key that unlocks the door which leads to ultimate reality."
- Rev. Martin Luther King, "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence", April 04, 1967
"You and I and everything in the universe exist as a part of the endless flow of God's love. Realizing this, we recognize that all creation is bound together by the same benevolence. To harmonize with life is to come into accord with that part of God which flows through all things. To foster and protect all life is both our mission and our prayer. "
-- Ueshiba Sensai
"There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision.
The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering
the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe."
- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Our way of life is to live simply, which is what gives
it qualia. Three possessions of the simple life which
Hope and I choose and cherish and teach to Little
Smile are: (1) to care, (2) to be fair, and (3) to be
humble. When we care, we are unafraid. When we leave
enough for others, we are fair. When we humble
ourselves before Creation, we can grow. Acting
without being competitive; walking on the path of
least resistance, playing without keeping score; it is
more blessed to give than to receive. Caring is an
invincible shield against becoming a Profane. It is
what makes us human beings.
