Some scholars have traced the origins of the word "religion" to it's latin roots of 'religare', translated as "to reconnect, bind". (re= again) (ligare= to bind)... It is with this re-connection that is at the heart of our fundamental struggle in, with all things in this world. It is also the completest victory if we are ever able bring the 2 together. As it once was, though with time, our choices had stretched a space between so far. May we meet one another there, on that mountain top of our shared destiny, fullfilled and be among one another in rejoice, grace, and peace.

   Excerpt from TS Elliot's poem "The Gidding"-

What we call the beginning is often the end
 And to make and end is to make a beginning.
The end is where we start from
...we shall not cease from exploration

And the end of all our exploring 
Will be to arrive where we started 

And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, unremembered gate 

When the last of earth left to discover 
Is that which was the beginning; 

At the source of the longest river 

The voice of the hidden waterfall

And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for

But heard, half-heard, in the stillness

Between two waves of the sea.

Quick now, here, now, always-- 
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)

And all shall be well and
 All manner of thing shall be well

When the tongues of flames are in-folded 
Into the crowned knot of fire

And the fire and the rose are one.

Way of life, not round sun are warm people, not every piece of cloud in the rain, we can not control the fate of the strike, only practical calmly through every day. We have a very good and still have a beautiful soul, experiencing the bitterness and suffering as well as difficult to touch those pregnant thoughts and emotions are the deepest imprint's life and most cherished store! There are teaching: to bring a green leaf, so that the heart of the flower is full of light, quiet life flavor.Life, people always know what to do, does not matter, but let heart broken. Because they care; fearless, but fear gone before, because the mind; unpredictable, but it has been going, as alive as faith. Looking at the scenery and be loved, adding two numbers, is the achievement.Gentleman words simple but real, and the imaginary villain miscellaneous words. And needless to say that this is to say, to say to innocuous; and improper to say that this is nonsense, nonsense to court disaster. Do not be too dependent on the function of language, but forgot the power of silence. Speak by nature, silence by wisdom. Sentimental people do not usually happy, because too much http://www.pandoras-
