Ponder a moment about all the world’s civilizations. Without knowing about each other, in different ways, societies came to the same conclusion—there is a creator, a higher spiritual power. Ancients knew how to meditate and turn their desires into prayers and into objects. They created beautiful pottery out of sand that lasts for thousands of years. All the material exists in the universe to create everything you see manmade. Man has not learned how to create the sand, the Earth, or mankind. Man creates objects from existing resources. We can learn to use prayers, meditation, and thoughts to make things we desire to create a life of our dreams. –Jeanette Joy Fisher
