I believe that an all powerful God created the universe with a plan easily observed in nature that includes man. That as a human spirit, I enjoy or suffer from a distinctive ability to choose. That God's plan is the most exciting, satisfying way to live and requires self-development plus outgoing work. That it calls for unfamiliar self-disciplines but results in expanding horizons and greater happiness. That to pray for my will to be done is presumptuous and impractical, but to pray for God's will and be willing to accept it in my life, is realistic and right. That try as I may to avoid it and I have tried any improvement must start within me. That to perform good works in public and win ego-comforting praise is meaningless unless my family receive the best of my kindness, patience, and love.
