Perspectives

Eternal life and the invisible world are only to be sought in God. Only within Him do all spirits dwell. He is an abyss of individuality, the only infinite plenitude.~Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel~

Do not say, I will repay evil; wait for the Lord, and he will deliver you.

20:1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler,
and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.

2 The terror of a king is like the growling of a lion;
whoever provokes him to anger forfeits his life.

3 It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife,
but every fool will be quarreling.

4 The sluggard does not plow in the autumn;
he will seek at harvest and have nothing.

5 The purpose in a man’s heart is like deep water,
but a man of understanding will draw it out.

6 Many a man proclaims his own steadfast love,
but a faithful man who can find

7 The righteous who walks in his integrity-
blessed are his children after him!

8 A king who sits on the throne of judgment
winnows all evil with his eyes.

9 Who can say, , 8220;I have made my heart pure;
I am clean from my sin, 8221;

10 Unequal weights and unequal measures
are both alike an abomination to the Lord.

11 Even a child makes himself known by his acts,
by whether his conduct is pure and upright.

12 The hearing ear and the seeing eye,
the Lord has made them both.


13 Love not sleep, lest you come to poverty;
open your eyes, and you will have plenty of bread.

14 Bad, bad, says the buyer,
but when he goes away, then he boasts.

15 There is gold and abundance of costly stones,
but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.

16 Take a man’s garment when he has put up security for a stranger, and hold it in pledge when he puts up security for foreigners.

17 Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man, but afterward his mouth will be full of gravel.

18 Plans are established by counsel; by wise guidance wage war.

19 Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets; therefore do not associate with a simple babbler.

20 If one curses his father or his mother, his lamp will be put out in utter darkness.

21 An inheritance gained hastily in the beginning will not be blessed in the end.

23Unequal weights are an abomination to the Lord,and false scales are not good.

24 A man’s steps are from the Lord;
how then can man understand his way

25 It is a snare to say rashly It is holy,, 8221;and to reflect only after making vows.

26 A wise king winnows the wicked
and drives the wheel over them.

27 The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all his innermost parts.

28 Steadfast love and faithfulness preserve the king, and by steadfast love his throne is upheld.

29 The glory of young men is their strength, but the splendor of old men is their gray hair.

30 Blows that wound cleanse away evil; strokes make clean the innermost parts.

1CORINTHIANS 15:58 Therefore my dear brothers,stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

God grant the world the will to live in peace,
To end all conflict and make hostility cease.
If we are tolerant of others, we can accept who they are.
There would be no reason to kill, maim or scar.
What will it take to wake us from our sleep?
We must stand for peace and freedom.                                                                                 

As we sow, so shall we reap.

“There is but one way to know the truth, and that is not a golden one. It is fraught with toil and sacrifice and perhaps ridicule. The seeker of the truth must be fearless, he must not be afraid to enter the innermost holies of holies, and to tear down the veils of superstition that hang about any human and so-called divine institution. It is the truth that makes men free. If the truth tears down every church and government under the sun, let the truth be known and this truth only will be known when men cease to swallow the capsules of ancient doctors of divinities and politics; and when men begin to seek the truth in the records of history, politics, religion, and science.” Charles Austin Beard, 1898


“The world is supported by four things: the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valor of the brave.” ~ Inscribed on a 15th century Spanish University~

Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world. What you see reflects your thinking. And your thinking but reflects your choice of what you want to see. ~A Course In Miracles
