vertical line "the way you hold the life within you"
very good.

the light shines on all
thats what i meant by God is giving the rest is up to you,
the sun comes up and we are given this day, make of it what you will.
truth is in the eye of the observer, then all observations form another greater truth. thats were we should be "observing the truth that is being" not our own perception of the truth, "it dosen't discriminate" it is like a mirror

I particularly like the last line "Essentially you want to move from exclusiveness to inclusiveness."
