Connecting for stability

Not all paths through life are equally successful. Half of all marriages end in divorce, prison populations overflow, and a growing number of programs exist to help people overcome substance abuse and compulsive behavior. Happiness defined materially can be illusive at best, and at worst can lead to an ocean of tears.

At the same time, an enlightened, spiritual approach to life can be strengthening and rewarding. Prayer and spiritualization of thought are practical in emergencies, and tend to build stability and increase happiness over time. People who trust their lives to God's wisdom seem to enjoy the lasting happiness and meaning that more and more people are beginning to value.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
