[The Call To Faith, In This Light, Is Not Some Test Of A Coy God, Waiting To See If We "get It Right." It Is The Only Summons, Issued Under The Only Conditions, Which Can Allow Us Fully To Reveal Who We Are, What We Most Love, And What We Most Devoutly Desire. Without Constraint, Without Any Form Of Mental Compulsion, The Act Of Belief Becomes The Freest Possible Projection Of What Resides In Our Hearts...The Greatest Act Of Self-revelation Occurs When We Choose What We Will Believe, In That Space Of Freedom That Exists Between Knowing That A Thing Is, And Knowing That A Thing Is Not.]

Quotes About Silence And Music

"You see my five fingers, but somebody can see the five gaps between my fingers. Ordinarily you will not see the gaps, you will see five fingers. But the gaps are more real: fingers may come and go, gaps will remain. Between sounds of music there are gaps of silence. The authentic music consists not of sounds,but of the gaps. Sounds come and go; those gaps remain. And music can make you aware of those gaps more beautifully than anything else; hence I have to say that music comes next to silence." - Author: Osho

We turned back the death of cities, we were there when Lady Neon died, we drove the creature called Blackout into the shadows at the end of the alleys, we are light, we are life, we are fire and, would you believe it, the word that best describes our condition right now is cranky.Would you like to see what happens when you make us mad?" - Author: Kate Griffin
