you must be a person whose forgiveness matters.
Before you can have gratitude for your life,

you have to believe that your future matters.

you must believe that your life matters.

And, before you can feel unity with,
and Honor toward, Spirit and all creation,
you must Honor yourself to feel worthy of that unity.
