Man is the gardener of his own soul. The Great Spirit has provided him with all that is necessary for it to grow in wisdom, grace and beauty. The implements are there, he has but to use them wisely and well.
- Silver Birch

The growth of the soul is only increased by Service, for as you forget self in the Service of others so your own soul grows in stature and strength

The Highest Teaching:
Sometimes I get very tired with those who want what they call 'higher teachings' from the spirit world and do nothing to help their brother men.
As people grow they understand more and more the operation of the laws of the Great Spirit. There is no 'high' and there is no 'low' teaching.
If all people who clamour for teachings would do something to make the earth a better place, a brighter place, a place where the hungry would be fed and the thirsty be given drink, where people were allowed to live in houses where the sunshine of the Great Spirit could reach their poor, tired bodies, then they would be putting into operation the highest teaching of all ...

How does one gauge between what is "good" and "not good"? Is there a set of criteria?

Yes, if you like it, it must be good. If you do not like it, it must be bad. If you like it and someone else does not, then you have to fight to determine who is correct.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths.
These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep, loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen.
- Dr Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from

Sometimes its easy to lose faith in people. And sometimes one act of kindness is all it takes to give you hope again

God had brought me to my knees and made me acknowledge my own nothingness, and out of that knowledge I had been reborn. I was no longer the centre of my life and therefore I could see God in everything

I liked the solitude and silence of the woods and hills. I felt there the sense of a presence, something undefined and mysterious, which was reflected in the faces of the flowers and the movements of birds and animals, in the sunlight falling through the leaves and in the sound of running water, in the wind blowing on the hills and the wide expanse of earth and sky
- Bede Griffiths
