God is not a diversion.

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.
Make sure you are doing what God wants you to do
- then do it with all your strength.

I'm a believer. I don't go to church. I don't belong to any particular religion, but I do believe in God. I couldn't write what I write about and be creative without a certain form of belief.
Religion is the opium of the masses.
For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
Rejoice and be glad for your reward is great in heaven.
Everyone who has ever built anywhere a 'new heaven' first found the power thereto in his own hell.
