To say ‘there are no absolutes’ is stating an absolute absolutely.
Absolutes abound in nature, in science, in human physiology;
and in the spiritual realm.

Our goal is to discover what those absolutes are.
What the truth is,
what the absolute has to do with us,
and what will be the consequences of our ignoring or defying them.

Absolutes of gravity, seasons, weather and growth
are accepted and understood.
Some have devised means to use these laws
to produce machines, food and things beneficial to the human race.
Some have used these laws to kill, maim and destroy.

It is no use to ignore what is obvious,
nor to spend ones life fighting what cannot be changed.
Our choice is to accept that which is,
to use or abuse what is,
in order to benefit or destroy what is.

Let us set ourselves to the task of discovering what is truth,
what is unchangeable,
then within those secure boundaries
set out to become part of that which is absolute.
We can add to, be a part of truth and benefit all that is.
And in turn, we will discover that which is within us.
