God, from my reading today

If I could persuade myself that I could find Him in a Himalayan cave I would proceed there immediately. But I know that I cannot find Him, apart from humanity.
Mohatma Gandhi, Mahatma, IV, 1936

Did I mention to you that I am reading A Purpose-Driven Life? Well, to be honest, I'm not really. I don't know that I am a fan of Rick Warren, or the view of Christianity that he espouses.

But back before I went skating with Lisa, I did a bit of scanning, and I found a passage within the text that resonated with me strongly. It had a similar theme. I like what Mohatma Gandhi says better: he is more eloquent, and I feel no shivers crawling up my spine after reading it.
