“We are on this earth to remember and fulfill a divine purpose. We begin by knowing who we are, unique expressions of the Divine, created in its image and likeness. As we remember who we are, we can confidently and joyfully do what we are here to do. Who we are and what we do are therefore in harmony and alignment with the Creator’s vision of the highest and best in, through and as us.”
