hope springs

We have hope in our hearts because we’re part and parcel of the Supreme Person.  Unfortunately, illusions and material desires bind us to the material sphere.  Realizing that this world  isn’t our real home will inspire us to seek shelter in Him.  Some inspiring words of wisdom to lead us back home:

If it were not for hope, the heart would break. –Greek proverb
