“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” – e. e. cummings

From “The Human Condition: A User’s Manual” by Arnold Kunst
Any heaven that comes easily, that isn't taken by storm, is a pretend heaven, the realm of a Wizard-of-Oz god who isn't worth crossing the street for. You want the real thing? Then you'd better gird your loins and prepare to do battle.

In the 1850's Lincoln was involved in a high-profile case arguing for a steam ship company against a railroad company. The issue had to do with low-lying trestles across a river. In his summation to the jury the lawyer for the railroad argued brilliantly as to why the burgeoning economic prosperity of the entire region demanded free and unfettered access to bridges across rivers. His summary took over an hour. Lincoln's summary was one sentence: 'What this jury has to decide is whether one group has more right to cross a river than another has to go up and down that same river.' He won the case.

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein

From “The Human Condition: A User’s Manual” by Arnold Kunst
Real power comes from harnessing the power of both the subconscious and the conscious mind. We’re meant to learn how they work together since their harmonious meshing guarantees all the fabulous abundance our Father-God intends for us and for ours.
