208. Well said, then, and brightest blessings
Our beliefs are not as different as we are taught to presuppose.
What is the Christ, the Lord or the Lady or any other image of the Divinity we hold in our hearts? Merely a symbol for something we can experience, but can never understand, or put into one of our neat little boxes of intellectual categorization, or enlist in our marketing campaign.

Our hopes are similar. But often on this miserable sphere the choice is to fight or submit. Submission doesn't work very well for me, I fear. Still, we can pray from time to time ... and I, too, have been known to light candles.
