Arise

What will lift our consciousness to the supreme source of all? What will elevate our thoughts to that which is noble and sublime? 

There is the mighty forest that raises our vision to towering heights. And there is the exalted cathedral which inspires our voice to soar in worship. 

There are majestic mountains that both span and scale our horizon. With them we climb eternally higher. There are the stars of the sky. And by their light they remove the boundaries of our universe.

Look upon the lotus as a symbol of the purity and bliss of the soul that dwells within all creation. Look upon the cross as a symbol of ascending power of the eternal, and immortal reality of God.

What power of soul will arise within us?
