15 "The entire world is a divine scripture, unfolding like cosmic prayer."

16 "We have a theology in our biology. It is instinctual, just as birds know their paths, beavers build dams, and whales communicate with one another.

17 "Your soul is a vessel of sacred graces: compassion, harmony, wisdom, love, endurance, humor, patience, healing, and vision….these are the essence, the building blocks of your highest potential."

18 "This infinite and eternal self is the home of spirit in you and in each and every sentient being."

19 "Your link to the divine cannot be broken….it is a sealed, eternal bond."

20 "Where there is hatred, sow love. Where there is pain, sow love. Where there is chaos, sow love."

24 "Each of us is enriched by the presence of God everywhere, in every blade of grass, in every beam of light, in every prayer, and in every truth in every scripture."

25 "Even though you may not think you see or hear him, God is always present."
