Where did we come from?

Israel grew out of nothingness. Deserts, with planted seeds growing from miracles and light. That is, the promised land to all peoples—all, peoples. Though now we sit in backlash; of fear and clouds that cover eyes afraid to see the truths we share. Amazingly through all of it, it is still growing.

On Culture:

A mixture of spice and dates, mixtures that inter-relate and tell truths of saints—we were all there. Joined in music and dance, sands and light our guiding path, and a spirit beyond the sun.

On Politics

One, stands in truth together that a boy or a girl, no matter who they married, could love and share equally in all things. This guaranteed to the original father and son, mother and daughter. But something now stands in the way, and the basic truths we all share are being called into jeopardy by those too afraid to remember the first principle—we are brothers.

On the Tension:

Now means Today. See that. Know that.
Now means Today. In front is what matters.
Mind and body, heart and soul.
Need for food, and need for love.
Now means Today. We must remember it.
