First, the importance of the individual.
I really do believe in the importance, centrality and power of the individual. What happens everywhere in the world begins with interpersonal relationships and the individual. More can be done, and is done to change the course of history by the actions of individuals than anything else.
There's that old saying that when God wants to change the world, He sends a baby. Whether that baby is Buddha, or Gandhi, or Abraham Lincoln, or Henry Ford, or Thomas Beckett, or Jesus, the world changes when babies enter mortality. All lives matter. No one matters more than another in my view. The accumulation of lives well lived is the stuff of history. How many unnamed artisans were required to build the Parthenon?
Our day is the great day of the individual. Now your thoughts can be sent by electronic means anywhere in the world. Your audience can include every living person who has a connection to the internet. I think there is a purpose there.
You matter. All of us do. Good ideas can now spread on eagle's wings, so to speak. A spark kindled today can light the whole world.
Second, the primacy of good.
I believe truth will triumph. To be here on the earth required an initial "screening," which was conducted before the people who are born here were permitted to come. All those who live here came from a shared God and Father of us all. Therefore, we have something in common.
Truth is recognizable. It must be fought to be suppressed. Although some will wage that fight and succeed in blighting their sense of the truth and light, the overwhelming majority will not. The "light of Christ" given to all mankind as a commonly shared inheritance persists here.
The result is that truth will win. In free exchanges of ideas, it will be truth that will ultimately triumph. I believe the truth will win even if it is only spoken as a whisper in a hurricane of opposition. It will win.
It is unnecessary for truth to come from authorized sources. It is irrelevant for it to be opposed by authorized sources. It will always triumph. Crush it, burn it, send it into the wilderness and crucify those who believe it - it will triumph.
