God is the universal substance in existing things. He comprises all things. He is the fountain of all being. In Him exists everything that is.

~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca



We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.

I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. 

~e. e. cummings



Never once in my life did I ask God for success or wisdom or power or fame. I asked for wonder, and he gave it to me.

Predator and Prey

The hour of departure has arrived and we go our separate ways, I to die and you to live.  Which of these two is better only God knows.
