Faith is not like a deed to a house in which one may live with full rights of possession. It is more like a kit of tools with which a man may build him a house. The tools will be worth just what he does with them. When he lays them down they will have no value until he takes them up again.

How can you shorten the subject? That stern struggle with the multiplication table for many people not yet ended in victory how can you make it less? Square root as obdurate as a hardwood stump in a pasturenothing but years of effort can extract it. You cant hurry the process. Or pass from arithmetic to algebra; you cant shoulder your way past quadratic equations or ripple through the binomial theorem. Instead the other way; your feet are impeded in the tangled growth your pace slackens you sink and fall somewhere near the binomial theorem with the calculus in sight on the horizon. So died for each of us still bravely fighting our mathematical training; except for a set of people called mathematicians -- born so like crooks.

When music sounds gone is the earth I know And all her lovelier things even lovelier grow; Her flowers in vision flame her forest trees Lift burdened branches stilled with ecstasies. When music sounds out of the water rise Naiads whose beauty dims my waking eyes Rapt in strange dream burns each enchanted face With solemn echoing stirs their dwelling-place. When music sounds all that I was I am Ere to this haunt of brooding dust I came; And from Times woods break into distant song The swift-winged hours as I hasten along.

We know so well what the unique quality was that held this great and beautiful pride and exquisite humility together. It lay in the relationship he held with God. We know the familiar idea of Jesus oneness with God: only we deal with it too much as a doctrine of the Church not as an element in Jesus own experience. If we never find it in reality in life we cannot reveal the true Christlike character at all we will always be trying earnestly to be something but on too superficial and obvious a plane.

There was always plenty to do in the garden weeds to be yanked up between the flower beds holes to be dug for tulip bulbs. Williams blended rich compost into the soil turning it over; or prepared to plant the sapling bought back from a weekend trip to James Laughlins country place in Norfork Connecticut or Flossies parents farm near Harriman New York. Rooting around in the dark earth was great exercise. Williams carefully removed his white shirt and tie and when he had worked long enough so that sweat began to show through his undershirt it never failed his mind was wonderfully cleared. He washed up had a bite to eat and was ready for the next visitor.

Salvation and justice are not to be found in revolution but in evolution through concord. Violence has ever achieved only destruction not construction; the kindling of passions not their pacification; the accumulation of hate and destruction not the reconciliation of the contending parties; and it has reduced men and parties to the difficult task of building slowly after sad experience on the ruins of discord.
Pope Pius XII   Category: Unsorted

There are many things which a person can do alone but being a Christian is not one of them. As the Christian life is above all things a state of union with Christ and of union of his followers with one another love of the brethren is inseparable from love of God. Resentment toward any human being cannot exist in the same heart with love to God. The personal relationship to Christ can only be realized when one has come to himself as a member of His Body the Christian fellowship.

It is no strain of metaphor to say that the love of God and the wrath of God are the same thing described from opposite points of view. How we shall experience it depends upon the way we shall come up against it: God does not change; it is mans moral state that changes. The wrath of God is a figure of speech to denote Gods unchanging opposition to sin; it is His righteous love operating to destroy evil. It is not evil that will have the last word but good; not sorrow but joy; not hate but love.

The great truths of human life do not spring new born to each new generation. They derive from long experience. They are the gathered wisdom of the race.

Organismic awareness is what we – on the Ego Level – ordinarily but clumsily refer to as seeing touching tasting smelling and hearing. But in its very purest form this sensual awareness is non–symbolic non–conceptual momentary consciousness. Organismic awareness is awareness of the Present only you cant taste the past smell the past see the past touch the past or hear the past. Neither can you taste smell see touch or hear the future. In other words organismic consciousness is properly timeless and being timeless it is essentially spaceless. Just as organismic awareness knows no past or future it knows no inside or outside no self or other. Thus pure organismic consciousness participates fully in the non–dual awareness called Absolute Subjectivity.

We must discard the idea that past routine past ways of doing things are probably the best ways. On the contrary we must assume that there is probably a better way to do almost everything. We must stop assuming that a thing which has never been done before probably cannot be done at all.

Bears: When you see a bear the spot where you see it becomes instantly different from every place else youve seen. Bears make you pay attention. They keep the mountains from turning into a blur.... A woods with a bear in it is real to a man walking through it in a way that a woods with no bear is not. Roscoe Black a man who survived a serious attack by a grizzly in Glacier National Park some years ago described the moment when the bear had him on the ground: He lay on me for a few seconds not doing anything.... I could feel his heart beating against my heart. The idea of that heart beating someplace just the other side of ours is what makes people read about bears and tell stories about bears and theorize about bears and argue about bears and dream about bears.

A beautiful legend tells the story of two angels that were sent forth throughout the land each given a basket one to gather up requests and the other thanksgivings. The angel of requests came back with her basket running over full. The angel of thanksgivings came back with her basket practically empty. So it is in life. It seems that all have requests to make but few of us think to return and give thanks.

The antithesis between death and life is not so stark for the Christian as it is for the atheist. Life is a process of becoming and the moment of death is the transition from one life to another. Thus it is possible for a Christian to succumb to his own kind of death-wish to seek that extreme of other-worldliness to which the faith has always been liable especially in periods of stress and uncertainty. There may appear a marked preoccupation with death and a rejection of all temporal things. To say that this world is in a fallen state and that not too much value must be set upon it is very far from the Manichaean error of supposing it to be evil throughout. The Christian hope finds ambivalence in death: that which destroys also redeems.

Interest in global circumnavigation is older than Christianity itself. In fact if the following quotation is to be credited some attempts at circumnavigation predated the birth of Christ: As for the rest of the distance around the inhabited earth which has not been visited by us up to the present time (because of the fact that the navigators who sailed in opposite directions never met) it is not of very great extent if we reckon from the parallel distances that have been traversed by us... For those who undertook circumnavigation and turned back without having achieved their purpose say that they were made to turn back not because of any continent that stood in their way and hindered their further advance inasmuch as the sea still continued open as before but because of their destitution and loneliness.

In the mathematics I can report no deficience except that it be that men do not sufficiently understand the excellent use of the pure mathematics in that they do remedy and cure many defects in the wit and faculties intellectual. For if the wit be too dull they sharpen it; if too wandering they fix it; if too inherent in the sense they abstract it. So that as tennis is a game of no use in itself but of great use in respect it maketh a quick eye and a body ready to put itself into all postures; so in the mathematics that use which is collateral and intervenient is no less worthy than that which is principal and intended.

As to the position that the people always mean well that they always mean to say and do what they believe to be right and just it may be popular but it can not be true.

Pure democracy like pure rum easily produces intoxication and with it a thousand pranks and fooleries. I do not expect mankind will before the millennium be what they ought to be and therefore in my opinion every political theory which does not regard them as being what they are will prove abortive.

The basic assumption which all expositors seem anxious to secure is certainly right namely that the ultimate purpose of a parable is to help and not hinder the apprehension of the truth. But beyond this we may say that it belongs to the very nature of revelation that the capacity to receive it depends upon the prior surrender and obedience of the will.... The disciples had so surrendered to the sovereignty of Jesus and could therefore know. If temporarily a parable concealed the truths of the kingdom from the outsider on the intellectual plane it was only in order that moral conviction might first be secured with a view to intellectual enlightenment afterwards. There are many who through intellectual pride would like to have it otherwise but it cannot be.

Contemplating this blighted and sinister career the lesson is burnt in upon the conscience that since Judas by transgression fell no place in the Church of Christ can render any man secure. And since falling he was openly exposed none may flatter himself that the cause of Christ is bound up with his reputation that the mischief must needs be averted which his downfall would entail that Providence must needs avert from him the natural penalties for evildoing. Though one was as the signet upon the Lords hand yet was he plucked thence. There is no security for any soul except where love and trust repose upon the bosom of Christ.

The biologist can push it back to the original protist and the chemist can push it back to the crystal but none of them touch the real question of why or how the thing began at all. The astronomer goes back untold million of years and ends in gas and emptiness and then the mathematician sweeps the whole cosmos into unreality and leaves one with mind as the only thing of which we have any immediate apprehension. Cogito ergo sum ergo omnia esse videntur. All this bother and we are no further than Descartes. Have you noticed that the astronomers and mathematicians are much the most cheerful people of the lot? I suppose that perpetually contemplating things on so vast a scale makes them feel either that it doesnt matter a hoot anyway or that anything so large and elaborate must have some sense in it somewhere.

The real challenge that we face in our communications with others is to condition our hearts to have Christlike feelings for all of Heavenly Father's children. When we develop this concern for the condition of others we then will communicate with them as the Savior would. We will then warm the hearts of those who may be suffering in silence. As we meet people with special needs along life's way we can then make their journey brighter by the things that we say. Christlike communications will help us to develop righteous relationships and ultimately to return to our heavenly home safely. May we treasure the divine gift of communication and may we use it wisely to build and to assist others on this marvelous journey through mortality.

Philosopher and mathematician Gottfried Leibniz speculated on the possibility of intermediate species over a century before the publication of Darwins theory: All advances by degrees in Nature and nothing by leaps and this law as applied to each is part of my doctrine of Continuity. Although there may exist in some other world species intermediate between Man and the Apes Nature has thought it best to remove them from us in order to establish our superiority beyond question. I speak of intermediate species and by no means limit myself to those leading to Man. I strongly approve of the research for analogies; plants insects and Comparative Anatomy will increase these analogies especially when we are able to take advantage of the microscope more than at present.

See Lord my coat hangs in tatters like homespun old thread? All that I had all my strength I have given in hard work and kept nothing back for myself.

The effort of the economist is to see to picture the interplay of economic elements. The more clearly cut these elements appear in his vision the better; the more elements he can grasp and hold in his mind at once the better. The economic world is a misty region. The first explorers used unaided vision. Mathematics is the lantern by which what before was dimly visible now looms up in firm bold outlines. The old phantasmagoria disappear. We see better. We also see further.

The purpose of seasonal festivals is periodically to revive the topocosm. Gaster coined this word from the Greek – topo for place and cosmos for world order. Topocosm means the world order of a particular place. The topocosm is the entire complex of any given locality conceived as a living organism not just the human community but the total community – the plants animals and soils of the place. The topocosm is not only the actual and present living community but also that continuous entity of which the present community is but the current manifestation.

I agree that the fear of American cultural imperialism is shared by many people and I agree with your point about the invasive nature of television culture. But I wouldnt draw the next inference: that this is negative and therefore it must be stopped. I feel that one should address this influence in a way that takes away the negative edge through a positive counter-response. This way you reinforce and reaffirm your conviction in the inner values. You harness those beliefs and develop them with a greater degree of self-awareness. Thats the kind of response people should have instead of rejecting technology.

Most of our conflicts and difficulties come from trying to deal with the spiritual and practical aspects of our life separately instead of realizing them as parts of one whole. If our practical life is centered on our own interests cluttered up by possessions distracted by ambitions passions wants and worries beset by a sense of our own rights and importance or anxieties for our own future or longings for our own success we need not expect that our spiritual life will be a contrast to all this. The souls house is not built on such a convenient plan; there are few soundproof partitions in it. Only when the conviction not merely the idea that the demand of the Spirit however inconvenient rules the whole of it will those objectionable noises die down which have a way of penetrating into the nicely furnished little oratory and drowning all the quieter voices by their din.

We must learn to deal with people as they are not as we wish them to be. We must study the moral values which shape our thinking arouse our emotions and guide our conduct.

Why do you fret for tomorrow? Why are you heavy with care Wrapping your heart in sorrow A garment too somber to wear? Faith has a brighter color Home has a rainbow hue And trust links them both together In a background of heavenly blue. You can weave these lovely colors Into a garment so light It will penetrate every shadow And shine through the darkest night. God will take care of tomorrow With him each tomorrow must rest – And we hold this a sure conviction When we give each today our best!

Obviously where art has it over life is in the matter of editing. Life can be seen to suffer from a drastic lack of editing. It stops too quick or else it goes on too long. Worse its pacing is erratic. Some chapters are little more than a few sentences in length while others stretch into volumes. Life for all its raw talent has little sense of structure. It creates amazing textures but it cant be counted on for snappy beginnings or good endings either. Indeed in many cases no ending is provided at all.

From one Soul of the Universe are all Souls derived.... Of these Souls there are many changes some into a more fortunate estate and some quite contrary.... Not all human souls but only the pious ones are divine. Once separated from the body and after the struggle to acquire piety which consists in knowing God and injuring none such a soul becomes all intelligence. The impious soul however punishes itself by seeking a human body to enter into for no other body can receive a human soul; it cannot enter the body of an animal devoid of reason. Divine law preserves the human soul from such infamy.... The soul passeth from form to form; and the mansions of her pilgrimage are manifold. Thou puttest off thy bodies as raiment; and as vesture dost thou fold them up. Thou art from old O Soul of Man; yea thou art from everlasting.

If this commonality of moral traditions among the worlds major religions does not say something about the universality of religion it does say something about the universality of mankind....

You can't build a great company without great people. But how do you know them when you see them?

Hiring they believe is not about finding people with the right experience; it's about finding people with the right mind-set. These companies hire for attitude and train for skill.

Ere you lie down to sleep in the night sit still awhile and nurse again to life your gentler self. Forget the restless noisy spirit of the day and encourage to speech the soft voices within you that timidly whisper of the peace of the quiet night; and occasionally look out at the quiet stars. The night will soothe you like a tender mother folding you against her soft bosom and hiding you from the harm of the world. Though denied and rejected by men in the light of day the night will not reject you and in the still of her soft shadows you are free. After the day's struggle there is no freedom like unfettered thoughts no sound like the music of silence. And though behind you lies a road of dust and heat and discouragement and before you the challenge and uncertainty of untried paths in this brief hour you are master of all highways and the universe nestles in your soul.

Some people mistake weakness for tact. If they are silent when they ought to speak and so feign an agreement they do not feel they call it being tactful. Cowardice would be a much better name.

Be sure when you think you are being extremely tactful that you are not in reality running away from something you ought to face.

In the late 1600s the finest instruments originated from three rural families whose workshops were side by side in the Italian village of Cremona. First were the Amatis and outside their shop hung a sign: The best violins in all Italy. Not to be outdone their next-door neighbors the family Guarnerius hung a bolder sign proclaiming: The Best Violins In All The World! At the end of the street was the workshop of Anton Stradivarius and on its front door was a simple notice which read: The best violins on the block.

True it is that many find some of the speech on the Internet to be offensive and amid the din of cyberspace many hear discordant voices that they regard as indecent. The absence of governmental regulation of Internet content has unquestionably produced a kind of chaos but as one of plaintiffs' experts put it with such resonance at the hearing: What achieved success was the very chaos that the Internet is. The strength of the Internet is that chaos. Just as the strength of the Internet is chaos so the strength of our liberty depends upon the chaos and cacophony of the unfettered speech the First Amendment protects. For these reasons I without hesitation hold that the [Communications Decency Act] is unconstitutional on its face.

Agency or the power to choose was ours as spirit children of our Creator before the world was. It is a gift from God nearly as precious as life itself. Often however agency is misunderstood. While we are free to choose once we have made those choices we are tied to the consequence of those choices. We are free to take drugs or not. But once we choose to use a habit-forming drug we are bound to the consequences of that choice. Addiction surrenders later freedom to choose.

We ought indeed to expect to find the works of God in such things as the advance of knowledge. Knowledge of the physical universe is not to be thought of as irrelevant to Christian faith [simply] because it does not lead to saving knowledge of God. In so far as it is concerned with Gods creation physical science is a fitting study for Gods children. Moreover the advance of scientific knowledge does negatively correct and enlarge theological notions at the least the geologists and astrophysicists have helped us to rid ourselves of parochial notions of God and filled in some of the meaning of such phrases as almighty.

I asked an endurance swimmer How is it possible for you to swim for twenty hours? What kind of mental attitude do you have? She said I believe that the water is a friend. It wants to help me. It does not fight against me and I do not fight against it. We are working together. I often think of that when I am in the ‘swim' of life. The waves and currents and the tides hit us all at times and it is not always easy to say The water is friendly. It requires an act of faith a volitional act; it means work but most of all it requires a will to believe. the more we use this will the more it becomes a part of us and the more natural becomes its application.

Some people would say my paintings show a future world and maybe they do but I paint from reality. I put several things and ideas together and perhaps when I have finished it could show the future. If people want to interpret my work as warnings about too much overpopulation disease and mechanization in the future then that is up to them. I like to combine human beings creatures and biomechanics. And I love to work with bones they are elemental and function and after all are part of human beings. I have many bones in my home in Zurich and I study them and use them as models. Some people say my work is often depressing and pessimistic with the emphasis on death blood overcrowding strange beings and so on but I don't really think it is.

For centuries the battle of morality was fought between those who claimed that your life belongs to God and those who claimed that it belongs to your neighbours between those who preached that the good is self-sacrifice for the sake of ghosts in heaven and those who preached that the good is self-sacrifice for the sake of incompetents on earth. And no one came to say that your life belongs to you and that the good is to live it.

It is not dishonest religion so much as restricted religion meaning it does not serve the purpose a way of thinking for a special time and a special place. It answers a thousand questions we have not asked and by its supposed sacred customs smothers the questions we might ask or die.

The Constitution in addition to delegating certain enumerated powers to Congress places whole areas outside the reach of Congress' regulatory authority. The First Amendment for example is fittingly celebrated for preventing Congress from prohibiting the free exercise of religion or abridging the freedom of speech. The Second Amendment similarly appears to contain an express limitation on the government's authority....This Court has not had recent occasion to consider the nature of the substantive right safeguarded by the Second Amendment. If however the Second Amendment is read to confer a personal right to keep and bear arms a colorable argument exists that the Federal Government's regulatory scheme at least as it pertains to the purely intrastate sale or possession of firearms runs afoul of that Amendment's protections.

Philosophys output is the basketful of these admissible views all together. One delimiting strategy would be to modify and shave these views capturing what is true in each to make them compatible parts of one new view. This book puts forward its explanations in a very tentative spirit; not only do I not ask you to believe that they are correct I do not think it important for me to believe them correct either. Still I do believe and hope you will find it so that these proposed explanations are illuminating and worth considering that they are worth surpassing; also that the process of seeking and elaborating explanations being open to new possibilities the new wonderings and wanderings the free explanation is itself a delight.

A win would have given Ghaffari not only the Olympic gold medal but also his first victory over Karelin something of which he has literally dreamed about after 20 meets between the two. Karelin dominates international competition in the sport.

Individualism as a definition of holding to personal ideals is classed as obstinacy and anti-social. Inevitably we run point blank into the evils of compromise. When compromise enters our moral fibre it spreads like a cancerous growth. We think we plan adequate safeguards around areas in which we contemplate yielding our standards but once we lower the fence and break our strong will to do right come what may we expose ourselves to forces that spread beyond control. Compromise always starts on some rather insignificant principle. The dangers of yielding seem negligible and we usually risk those things first where observation and detection by others is difficult. We thus seek to avoid censure and discipline. In a short time we find ourselves trading our principles for false values and doing it in the black market of human relationships....

An IDEAL is a vision of the Ought-To-Be some good to be attained.... An ideal is a challenge to a better life. First we must see it in imagination; then we must long to make it a part of ourselves; then we shall guide our conduct by it we shall live it. An ideal is both light and power. It is light for conscience and motive-power for will. It is a standard by which we judge between right and wrong. When we see a noble ideal lived out in anothers life it gives us a holy discontent with ourselves until we make it our own and it makes more beautiful and strong our own character. This is the way of all progress as the world grows better for there is no progress without ideals....
