MAY YOU ALL BE BLESSED AND ENLIGHTENED, WE SEEK WE SEARCH BUT DO WE EVOLVE WITH THE SPIRIT OF TIME LOOSING FURTHER AND FURTHER THE ESSENCE OF NATURE, OF SPIRIT, OF THE CREATOR… FOR MANY HAVE FOUND HIM IN, OR LOST HIM TO, THE MIGHTY DOLLAR………… FOR VANITY HAS CONSUMED US AMONGST MANY OTHER SINS SUCH AS PRIDE OH YES PRIDE COMES IN MANY DESTRUCTIVE WAYS ALSO. FOR PRIDE WE FIGHT WARS FOR GREED AND ENVY ARE ALWAYS LURKING BY. PRIDE MAKES US THINK OUR WAY TO THE CREATOR IS THE ONLY WAY NOT REALIZING THAT IT’S YOUR HEART THAT AT JUDGMENT DAY IS WEIGHED…. SO YES EVOLVE WITH THE SPIRIT OF TIME AS LONG AS YOU SIMPLY FOLLOW THE PATH OF TRUE LOVE & PEACE DIVINE JUSTICE LOVE AND CHARITY…

It is by the exercise of our reason that we are enabled to contemplate God in His works, and imitate Him in His ways. When we see His care and goodness extended over all His creatures, it teaches us our duty toward each other, while it calls forth our gratitude to Him. It is by forgetting God in His works, and running after the books of pretended revelation, that man has wandered from the straight path of duty and happiness, and become by turns the victim of doubt and the dupe of delusion.
