"How is one to live a moral and compassionate existence when one finds darkness not only in one's culture but within oneself?  There are simply no answers to some of the great pressing questions.  You continue to live them out, making your life a worthy expression of leaning into the light."

    Light, to explain, the types thereof. There are answers to such questions. Charity is of great value, when enduring hardness and adversity. To be illuminated would imply a prize sought for, when shared with the world brings about great change. As we see in the world today, a type of light moving the nations to awareness, Science seeks a certain type of light that only the new creature can expose to the thoughts of man, shedding light to discover, and understand the knowledge of our Creator. A closer walk with thee can be a scary walk indeed. To expose ignorance was Socrates' gift to man, to teach of the light is a gift of another.
