“…You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.
For what is prayer but the expansion of yourself into the living ether?
And if it is for your comfort to pour your darkness into space, it is also for your delight to pour forth the dawning of your delight to pour forth the dawning of your heart.
And if you cannot but weep when your soul summons you to prayer, she should spur you again and yet again, through weeping, until you shall come laughing.
When you rise to meet in the air those who are praying at that very hour, and whom save in prayer you may not meet…” Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet, page 67.
Daily Wisdom of Peace Pilgrim
“Just as a human soul that faces great difficulties also faces great opportunities for spiritual growth, so a human society that faces destruction also faces the opportunity to enter a period of renaissance…We will move toward more economic and social democracy, and they will move toward more political and individual democracy. The ideal society has yet to be built—one which balances nicely collective well-being and individual well-being.” –Peace Pilgrim, Peace Pilgrim, page 105
