You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. -anonymous note found in Old Saint Paul church dated 1692

ONE ONE ONE
The lamps are different.
But the Light is the same.
So many garish lamps in the dying brain's lamp shop, Forget about them.
Concentrate on essence, concentrate on Light.
In lucid bliss, calmly smoking off its own hold fire, The Light streams
toward you from all things, All people, all possible permutations of good,
evil, thought, passion.
The lamps are different,
But the Light is the same.
One matter, one energy, one Light, one Light-mind, Endlessly emanating all things.
One turning and burning diamond,
One, one, one.
Ground yourself, strip yourself down,
To blind loving silence.
Stay there, until you see
You are gazing at the Light
With its own ageless eyes.

I've come across some beautiful books, called The Ringing Cedars series. They're all about a recluse in Russia named Anastasia and her most sober look at life. Vladimir is an entrepreneur who meets Anastasia and spends time adjusting to her view.
Here's an excerpt:
"Just a few days will go by, and millions of fathers and mothers in many a land will be writing the Book of Kin, filling in its pages with their own hand. There will be a vast multitude of them- these Books of Kin. And all of them will contain the truths which begin in the heart, for their children. There will be no room in tehse books for artifice or guise. Before them all the lies of history will fall."
"You will surmise what would happen, Vladimir, if you could take into your hands today a book which your ancestor of old had begun to write especially for you. Then another would continue the writing, eventually your grandfather, and your father and you mother."
"The books read by Man [being our highest potential] today include many that are devised with a specific aim in mind- namely, the distortion of history and the meaning of life. Many false dogmas are especially designed to disorient Man in space. This is not easily discernible all at once. But clarity comes directly as a son reads a book of his forebears, which his father and mother have continued personally for him."
"But wait, Anastasia, not everyone knows how to write a book."
"Everyone can if they feel the demand to do so-if they are looking to protect their children, and in the future themselves, from false dogmas. In Vedic times every father and mother would write a book of kin for their future children and grandchildren. This book was not comprised of words, but of deeds. Children could read created space like a book, and understand the deeds and thoughts of their parents, and were happy to inherit a happy space."
"The holy temple of the family will help in this- the Book of Kin. In it a mother and father will write for their son and daughter about what is the most important thing that needs to be created for happiness in life. The children will continue to record the Book of Kin. There will be no wiser and truer book for families anywhere on the Earth. All the knowledge of their pristine origins will be poured into it."
"Those that will begin to write already have this knowledge concealed within themselves. It is preserved within each one of us. When people think deeply and begin to write not sure for anyone, but for their children, all the knowledge of their pristine origins will be revealed within them and come to light."
The Book of Kin, Book Six from the series by Vladimir Megre.
This is an interview with the editor
Just a few pages into writing my own. An interesting reflection so far...
