Very soothing words indeed, you seem to have good "vibrations", if my
feeling is correct. Discipline of course is the key to magnifing ones
spiritual presence, although, there is wide variation of vocation, and
even the "evil" have spiritual effect. Unlike some I don't see an
analogy between "good and evil" and "spirit and matter".
Only some can recognize profundity, please pardon my unabashed remarks.
