Section Six: Begin the Journey of a Lifetime
Where do I go from here?
Look heavenward. "God directs."
is between a child's soul and God."
(from writings of Charlotte Mason)
"The history of my life will say to the world what it says to me--
There is a loving god, who directs
all things for the best."
Hans Christian Andersen
To put the world right in order
we must first put the nation in order;
To put the nation in order,
we must first put the family in order,
To put the family in order,
we must first cultivate our personal life;
we must first set our hearts right.
Goethe kept his heart 'right' by doing these 4 things everyday:
"These are the differences between mind and heart
as I now see them:
The mind is informed; the heart is inspired.
The mind feeds on facts; the heart feeds on truth.
The mind asks, 'Why?' The heart wonders, 'Why not?'
The mind is molded through questioning;
the heart asks its own questions.
The mind is verbose; the heart relishes brevity.
The mind seeks temporal and temporary pleasure;
the heart seeks spiritual and eternal joy.
The mind clings to reason; the heart clings to faith.
The mind often feels superior because of its vast knowledge;
the heart often feels humbled by all it doesn't yet understand.
The mind is critical; the heart is compassionate.
The mind thinks; the heart feels.
The mind seeks to be understood; the heart longs to understand. The mind is knowledgeable; the heart is wise."
