"God is a quality, not an object. God is not God but godliness — and godliness has to be found first within yourself. Unless you have a taste of it in your own being you will not be able to see it anywhere else. Once you have tasted it, once you have become drunk on the divine, then you will see it in the trees — in the green of the trees, in the red of the trees, in the gold of the trees. You will see it in the sun, in the moon, in the stars. You will be able to see it in the animals, birds, people, rivers, mountains. The whole existence will reflect your understanding, will become a mirror to you. You will be able to see your own face everywhere. We can see only that which we are, we cannot see that which we are not."
Notes To Self:
-To change things about yourself all you have to do is (gasp) start doing them
-Truths are simple
-Stop overanalyzing... things really can be explained as basically as possible, with only a subject, verb and direct object, and that's that.
