This is the thought that can be used
to say that death and sorrow are the certain lot of all who come here. For
their joys are gone before they are possessed, or even grasped. Yet this
is also the idea that lets no false perception keep us in its hold, nor
represent more than a passing cloud upon a sky eternally serene. And it is
this serenity we seek, unclouded, obvious and sure, today.
"We seek Your holy world today. For we, Your loving Sons, have lost our way a while. But we have listened to Your Voice, and learned exactly what to do to be restored to Heaven and our true Identity. And we give thanks today the world endures but for an instant. We would go beyond that tiny instant to eternity."
