How do you help other people? If someone is hungry, what do you do? If somebody hurts himself, what can you do? You already understand. Don't check your feelings; don't check your mind; don't check anything — only help people. If you cut off all thinking and keep this in mind, "How can I help?" the correct action will appear. - Seung Sahn

Rev. Gretchen preaches on mysticism. Quote referenced in sermon:
"Standing on the bare ground, — my head bathed by the blithe air, and uplifted into infinite space, — all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eye-ball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or particle of God." - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nature
"We think, each of us, that we're much more rational than we are. And we think that we make our decisions because we have good reasons to make them. Even when it's the other way around. We believe in the reasons, because we've already made the decision." - Daniel Kahneman
"The moment we cease to hold each other, the moment we break faith with one another, the sea engulfs us and the light goes out.” - James Baldwin
