The Universe Only Pretends

A L O H A From Honolulu!
What are the things that
you can't see that are important?
I would say justice, truth, humility,
service, compassion, love.
You can't see any of those, but
they're the guiding lights of a life.
US President Jimmy Carter

One of the most cowardly
things ordinary people do is
to shut their eyes to facts.
C.S. Lewis

The secret to life is meaningless
unless you discover it yourself.
W. Somerset Maugham

The universe only pretends
to be made of matter.
Secretly, it is
made of love.
Daniel Pinchbeck

Thankfulness is the
fountain of contentment

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

Good morning, Cloudia and Pixie, Jimmy Carter and Lewis are two of my favorites, they are spot on! your post so reminds me of this, We do not "come into" this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean "waves," the universe "peoples." Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe. Alan Watts Aloha!
