and not drift, nor live at anchor."

- O. W. Holmes -

Gamble everything for love
if you're a true human being
if not, leave this gathering


Love is the Key
This is the true secret of all healing:
seek for harmony in human relationships.
Love your fellow men and women, your fellow creatures.
Feel in your heart that gentleness of the Masters.
Love, and your whole body will be created.
It will shine with light of heaven,
the healing power which is realeased by love.

May today there be peace within.
May you trust your highest power that you are
exactly where you are meant to be....
May you not forget the infinite possibilities
that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you....
May you be content
knowing you are a child of God....
Let this presence settle into our bones,
and allow your soul the freedom
to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of you....

"The lesson which life repeats and constantly enforces
is 'look under foot.' You are always nearer the divine

your own place and hour. Every place is under the stars,
every place is the center of the world."

which we shall afterwards carefully avoid."

- John Keats -

"Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt,
those who have searched, and those who tried,

much, because they live in the gray twilight that
knows not victory, nor defeat."
