“Here is your home, and here your safety is. Here is your peace, and here there is no fear. Here is salvation. Here is rest at last.”
– A Course in Miracles, Lesson 102
We can all agree on the fact that no one wants to suffer. What we can’t all seem to agree on is whether or not human suffering is a necessary part of the equation of life.

“I ACCEPT HAPPINESS AS MY FUNCTION”
