The Secret


The seed which
The ripe date contains in its
Heart is the secret of the palm
Tree from the beginning of all

His Real Self


Man is empowered by God to hope and hope fervently,
until that for which he is hoping takes the cloak of
oblivion from his eyes, whereupon he will at last view
his real self. And he who sees his real self sees the
truth of real life for himself, for all humanity,
and for all things.

The Fortunate Fool


The fool that knows he is a fool is more
fortunate than a fool who believes he is wise.
This person only makes trouble for himself
and others, and he suffers accordingly.

It Is Forever

The Whole People

 bald eagle chicks-

In all your official acts, self interest
shall be cast aside. You shall look and
listen to the welfare of the whole people
and have always in view, not only the
present but the coming generations, the
unborn of the future Nation.
