“Though many have suffered shipwreck, still beat noble hearts.”
Always the soul says to us all, Cherish your best hopes as a faith, and abide by them in action. Such shall be the effectual fervent means to their fulfillment.
Flower of Life
Truth is the most important thing — Making sense of chaos

Consciousness and understanding can flower in every mind
Part of the soul of the universe subjectively experiencing itself
