Sections of the seminar
- The seminar is divided into sections. Although you can read most sections independently from the other ones, it is recommended to follow the course from beginning to end in the given order.
The core of our existence
Is the faith we have in God
Provides with our subsistence
Strengthens with a rod.
Some people think they're nothing... Some people think they're everything... Some people engage in chattering... And some people go for praying... But for God you're the real thing... You're the center, not right- and not left-wing... You're the head thing and the one that makes God sing...
Faith is built as a foundation
And is also God's donation
Is really a matter of cooperation
Born from God's and our aspiration
It builds up over time
From your and my internal rhyme
A growth in battle against crime
Faith this means i'm
Faith is the gaining of trust
To overcome the angels' dust
To do away with what's unjust
On the journey of eternal wanderlust
There's a saying 'Walk your talk'... When your talk is to do God's will... Your walk should be after that talk... Doing your duty and something more still... Faith always precedes our action... And actions are done in space and time... A number of good deeds to God's satisfaction... Is what makes our faith sublime...
Some people like to be the center... The one and only central center... Certainty is that centers are always relative... The center is not for one who's competitive... It's for the one who can relate... Who can accept that the other is also great... No central figure stands alone... Or could settle high on a throne... The smaller one thrives on supporting the center... And the center on assisting the member...
In the love we have for God... Is the base of faith deep and broad... We expand our faith by giving... Will enlighten all our living... No excuse for losing faith... In our hands we carry our fate...
Facts and ideas can be learned from a book
Also some truth, depending on where you look
But Truth can only be found in your heart
And abiding this is a divine art
The Truth is given to those in faith
You can be sure this won't be fake
Each day a jewel born in trust and action
Try to get in this flow to your lasting satisfaction
Love for God comes before love for man... Love for man is part of God's plan... By restoring our faith we come back to union... With God and man in holy communion... Faith wants to be expressed... This is how we're all being blessed...
When the plant begins to flower... It grew from a seed's embedded power... When the tree gives ample fruit... These developed from a seed minute... The full-grown crop salutes the source... That's how all things go their course... God's world comes from faith expressed... Such is our one and common quest.
