Thoughts Scribbled Before Sunrise

To pray is to be still.

Without solitude and silence, I easily lose my self. And God.

Solitude is a presence, not an absence.

Solitude allows the soul to look upon the pieces and see the unity.

Love is the most uplifting force in the universe.

Real love is never tempered with prudence nor controlled by common sense – no matter how admirable those qualities are.

Charity is love’s visible form.

Only an open and serene heart can absorb God’s love.

Laughter is an essential ingredient of the spiritual life. The cosmic and the comic love to dance together, though they are rarely seen doing so.

    Thank you, Mr. Straub, for making this mystery so understandable for my soul — and my head — to grasp.

    Thank you Gerry. The last two lines are wonderful. We all need to laugh more, to rejoice in the joy of life.
