This page is dedicated to the philosophy of life. It contains quotes of others as well as my own that I find meaningful and useful in people’s lives. I will still co-mingle quotes on other pages, but this page will be dedicated to the philosophy for a meaningful and centered life.

We live in an ‘energy’ universe. Energy is always moving into and out of physical form. A metaphor for God is like ‘water’ on the earth. Water exists from a single molecule to the oceans… and is constantly transmuting; the water of the oceans evaporates from the heat of the sun and becomes humidity in the air, then forms clouds, the water vapor in the clouds condenses to form rain – and we (humans) are like the raindrops (transformed or born from (God/Nature’s) dense clouds), our lives exist from the cloud to the surface, when we reach the surface, we energize and enliven the earth’s plants and animals; and billions of raindrops transform trickles into streams, the streams transform into rivers which flow back to the ocean and we bring life to billions of land and sea life – and the process starts all over. It is the circle of life.
