"What do you sense when you are in the Light?  Don't get trapped with just responding from your experience with your thoughts, seek the Light and then respond.  Let's see what flows.  Give the Light a chance to be real in and to this world we live in.  Pass on the need to respond to each other just as if you were in a meeting for worship and let’s see where we are a week from now.” – James Schultz, 3.2015
