Jewels of Truth Quotations & Favorite Quotes Of The Day

Hello All,

Here is what seems as of late my monthly installment into this beloved series of my own of spiritual quotations, written by yours truly.

Here goes without further adieu.

801) The Image of God is not homogeneous as in a uniform standard. It is truly a diversified image of life in its myriad of expressions. Akin to a kaleidoscope of patterns exceeding any brilliance that an earthly rainbow can muster. God's brilliance as an entity / deity is numerous in the Images of him / herself manifested all around us. Amen. ---Ivan / Atrayo.

802) The buildings of our lives are living sculptures, for which there is little to compare amongst all. We are living embodiments of other forms condensed into the medium we call humanity. We believe that we have no equals to ourselves and this is where we always err. Life itself dwarfs us into humility, whether we agree or not. We are the artists stroke ascending or descending by the curvatures of our lives. We act as critics, but we are truly artists in disguise at least unwittingly. We are Alive! ---Ivan / Atrayo.

803) Genius without conflict is idiocy manifested. Even geniuses need to be tempered hard like steel to stand the test of the ages. --- Ivan / Atrayo.
