A Voice Calls us on an astounding journey - life.

Listen to its call:

Remember this voice. We'll hear it again.

Stephen Hawking said:
“Look up at the sky and not down at your feet.”

Like Houser's chief we begin by looking up:

The Sentimental Stargazer

We live in a dynamic universe powered by change.
Everything changes: 
     planets, stars and galaxies - 
         atoms, molecules and cells - 
             flowers, trees and people.
There is life here. There is love here. . . . and mysteries.
We come, we go. Everything comes, everything goes. 
It’s natural. It’s astonishing. It’s even beautiful.


Kind friends, long ago, friends unhappy with religion asked for my help.

They could see:
  something was wrong.
They could see:
  there were no gods and goddesses, angels and demons, dragons and unicorns.
They could see:
  religion's stone age magic and superstition was all made up by society.

They wanted New Visions.
But new visions, new 
worldviews, require new ventures into the unknown.
o now we were on our way on a voyage of discovery
 - unintended, certainly unexpected, but nevertheless a voyage like
      Columbus and Magellan, or Darwin sailing on HMS Beagle.

Come, my friends,  ’Tis not too late to seek a newer world.

Come, my friends,

’Tis not too late to seek a newer world.

Push off, and sitting well in order smite

The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds

To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths

Of all the western stars, until I die.

It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:

It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,

And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’

We are not now that strength which in old days

Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;

One equal temper of heroic hearts,

Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

          —  Tennyson.   .   .

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
