. . . Is Tolerant
Have you ever thought what forgiveness means You, your own self, your own personality, needs forgiveness. Your spirit is divine, but until you have overcome, your personality remains human and needs the forgiveness of your spirit. As you forgive, as your spirit forgives your personality, so also will you learn to forgive your brother man for all his seeming errors. If you will train yourself to think in terms of love and forgiveness every moment of your life, a most beautiful thing will take place in you.

Chapter 12 – An Open Ending and A New Beginning
In after times, you will come to think of the beginning of the Age of Discovery as your own real beginning. In a sense, this will be true, for it will indeed be the beginning of your coherent functioning as a unified physical organism independent of the mother planet. When the collectivity of your being considers its experience in the terms of an individual lifetime, you will think of all the years of your history up until The Coming shortly after the turn of the Second Millennium A.D., as being years of darkness, years spent in the womb. You will remember nothing about them. When, in maturity, you come to reflect upon the millennium that has been labeled the Period of Planetary Awakening, you will look upon these years as the years of your childhood, years of vehicular formation. You will remember a little about them.
What you will encounter, and what you will experience, in the third period, out among the galaxies as an awakened child of the stars, will be so awesome and so novel that there is nothing that I could say about it that would mean anything to you, except, perhaps, that it is all reflected rather crudely in some of your primitive mythologies.
The craft that you are to assemble during the coming millennium in preparation for this will not be dead like the materials you form today, but alive like tree, flower and wind. You will inspire them with the gift of your consciousness as the Father has inspired me and as I inspire you. Yet all will be one. All will live and breathe with the coherence of a single organism.

The Importance Of Perspective
Perspective is important. When I was attending Martinsville High School in Indiana, Dad gave me a short essay he had come across on the subject of worry: There are really only two things to worry about: whether you are a success or whether you are a failure. If you are a success, there is no cause for worry, and if you are a failure— There are only two things to worry about: whether you have your health or whether you do not have your health. If you are healthy, a healthy person certainly should not worry, and if you do not have your health— There are only two things to worry about: whether you regain your health and get well or whether you fail to regain your health and pass on. If you regain your health, there is no cause for worry, and if you fail to regain your health and pass on— There are only two things to worry about: whether you will go to the place where we all hope to go or whether you go to that other place. If you go to the place where we all hope to go, you should not have worried, and if you go to that other place— You are going to be with all your friends and the people here. So why worry? —ANONYMOUS Even though it’s tongue-in-cheek, I’ve hung on to it over the years. When things seem to be piling up against you, it’s worth a glance.

The American Presidency
Purpose, Polarization, Reconciliation
An Incredible Story . . .
On July 4th in 1826, former Presidents Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, who were once fellow Patriots and then adversaries, die on the same day within five hours of each other.
Thomas Jefferson and John Adams were the last surviving members of the original American revolutionaries who had stood up to the British empire and forged a new political system in the former colonies. However, while they both believed in democracy and life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, their opinions on how to achieve these ideals diverged over time.
