A way of life for all

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you from misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.”
? Max Ehrmann, Desiderata: A Poem for a Way of Life

I first read that many decades ago and it stuck with me. It's a nice quote.

Here is a bit of a different view of the same thing... http://able2know.org/topic/16748-1

@mackllinvinger,
objective superiority is the way for all, so on the contrary kill god or gods

when u r aware that superiority is objectively existing and when truth is the objective superior right existence, then u have no excuse to run away from ur responsability of having to make anything objective of u superior as the exclusive truth u know and refute radically anyone superior sense being objective at all
