Answer for question 4252.

Do you live by any motto or philosophy? If so, what is it? Why does this resonate with you?
Yes; and it changes from day to day because there are so many of them out there -- in folk wisdom, in Sufi poetry, in all the mystical traditions, in the Tao Te Ching. Today its this: All is well because "...all will be well and all manner of thing will be well." (Julian of Norwich)

I like it because it partakes of the perennial wisdom that it is consciousness rather than force that most guides the universe and consciousness is perennially striving for goodness rather than nihilism or evil. And there is so much evidence right now that it is stupidity that is guiding things and i don't want to believe that!

Though my brother was in Cub and/or Boy Scouts for some length of time, I did not grow up scoutily. (I was in Brownies and then in Girl Scouts on (camping trip) and off for a couple of years.) So it is only with Chun Woo's joining Scouts that I have really learned any Scout lore.

I find the Cub Scout motto, "Do your best," much more reliable in life than the Boy Scout one, "Do a good turn daily."
