    I keep running into single sentences or tiny fragments from the UB that give me pause for thought and sometimes provide instant little bursts of illumination. I'll add them here as I run across them. Don't worry about being overwhelmed by the numbers I'm not even into reading the UB right now and don't have any inclination to do so at this moment. That impulse comes and goes. I've read it six times completely from cover to cover since 1973 but put it down once more to return to the importance of spiritual experience itself.

    So here's the first... (Note: each quote has a link to the online UB. You will find the specific quote at or near the very top of the page linked.)

    "In the lives of moral beings the golden rule becomes the wise center and circumference of all their philosophy."

    180:5.6 (1950.1)
