Journal Entry


In reality all of us are born free and equal. Each of us is equal in what counts most. We have equal access to the great Mind of the universe that governs all and knows all. Each of us can draw upon this Life Force for whatever our needs may be, but this power lies dormant unless we use it. I am master of my fate. I am equal to all men and women before God.

Quote of the Day:

“Each of us is born free and equal. The tough job is to outgrow it.”

– Guion Stewart Buford, Astronaut and Physicist.
