    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellen_G._White

    Actually I haven't found her.. She is still a stirring in my imagination in "contemplation mode"..meaning.. She is on the back burner.. and why? I am not Christian, nor Catholic, nor Episcopalian, Jehovah's Witness, Muslim, Vedic... and whatever else religions are out there.. I am myself becoming! I have never denied this..Aquair?.. Aquaries is my name here in this forum because I am Aquarian and my Twin Flame is Aries.. so you do the math.. "Aquaries".. No, Gemini is not part of my equation as Twin Flame! Next!

    Half the harm that is done in this world
    Is due to people who want to feel important
    They don't mean to do harm ­
    But the harm does not interest them.
    Or they do not see it, or they justify it
    Because they are absorbed in the endless struggle
    To think well of themselves.
    T. S. Eliot

    We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

    There is a sacred horror about everything grand. It is easy to admire mediocrity and hills; but whatever is too lofty, a genius as well as a mountain, an assembly as well as a masterpiece, seen too near, is appalling.

    "He who looks will not see it;

    He who listens will not hear it;

    He who gropes will not grasp it.
    The formless nonentity,

    the motionless source of motion.

    The infinite essence of the spirit is the source of life.
    Spirit is self.
    Walls form and support a room,
    yet the space between them is most important.

    A pot is formed of clay,
    yet the space formed therein is most useful.
    Action is caused by the force of nothing on something,
    just as the nothing of spirit is the source of all form.
    One suffers great afflictions because one has a body.

    Without a body what afflictions could one suffer?

    When one cares more for the body than for his own spirit,
    One becomes the body and looses the way of the spirit.

    The self, the spirit, creates illusion.
    The delusion of Man is that reality is not an illusion.

    One who creates illusions and makes them more real than reality,

    follows the path of the spirit and finds the way of heaven".**
