God Within; Universal Love

"At any moment, at any time of day, we can turn our thoughts inward and immediately contact the mind and consciousness of God. We realize that we do not have to be in a church to pray. We realize that we can talk with God on a hilltop, under a tree, in a canoe, in an automobile, in the cellar of our house, in the garret, or in the corner of our bedroom. God is not reached by turning our thoughts outward to some point in the heavens but by turning our thoughts inward to the temple within where the consciousness of God is always ready to respond and give help."

"We, as humans, have two duties with regard to Universal Love. The first is to love ourselves so that we can love others. The other is to cultivate tolerance, for although it may not be possible to love everyone; it is imperative to hate no one."

"There is nothing so inspiring, so filled with peace, happiness, perfect health, joy, and contentment as the development of the spiritual nature."
