- Everyone has something to teach you and can be celebrated and appreciated.
- Many who revere the Judeo-Christian God find parts of the Bible archaic and dry, but some passages are both moving and beautiful. Read the Song of Songs, also known as the Song of Solomon. This celebrates the relationship between God and his people as a tender courtship and marriage. In the Jewish Sephardic tradition the 117 verses are recited every Friday night. The poetry is unexpectedly sensual - for example: Your lips drop sweetness as the honeycomb, my bride;/ Milk and honey are under your tongue. Let the poetry enter your heart, and reinforce the message that true spirituality is by no means incompatible with the tenderness of bodily love.
- Whatever we do, however we act, creates how we become, how we will be, and how the world will be around us.
