Life is not a series of accidents. It is a collection of purposeful acts and decisions that we make. When we choose to be purposeful in our commitment to using our individual powers for the advancement of the collective good, then we are in search of the sacred. When we purposefully strive to live our lives in accordance with the highest universal values, then we merge with the sacred. When we give over our lives to the calling of healing, justice and love, then we bring sacredness to the lives of others and to the world.
