cleansing by fire

“The feelings right now are difficult to describe. One of the hazards of monasticism throughout the centuries is we become attached to what we have or where we are. This is simply a reminder that what we are called to is not our stuff. This is a cleansing by fire.”

-Brother Brown, Mount Calvary Monastery

"I promise you this: When I am president, any governor who's willing to promote clean energy will have a partner in the White House. Any company that's willing to invest in clean energy will have an ally in Washington. And any nation that's willing to join the cause of combating climate change will have an ally in the United States of America."

-Barack Obama
to the Governors' Global Climate Summit in Los Angeles

modern prophet
