1. Love is a conscious intentional commitment revealed ONLY in our behavior choices toward the ones we love.  It is NOT just a wonderful warm feeling in your heart. 
Roger F. Cram

2. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. Matter cannot be created or destroyed. All the matter and energy that ever existed still exists -- no more, no less. Therefore, the matter and energy that comprises all of everyone, our bodies, our thoughts, and our souls, have always been and will always be. We are all made of stardust. We are eternal. Take comfort in this.
Roger F. Cram

3. Humans prosper in both health and spirit when living with love, happiness, and peace.  Humans get sick and wither when living
with stress, sadness, and in judgment of others. Perhaps our bodies and minds are telling us something about the natural laws that
created us.  Perhaps we should listen.

Roger F.Cram                                                                                                                                                                                              

4. Failing is the successful completion of a stepping stone toward a goal.  No one fails any endeaver unless they quit.
Roger F. Cram

5. Governments search for peace through summit meetings, peace treaties, sanctions, and intimidating weapons.  Peace is not among those things. Peace is only inside you; find it there and then give it to your government. 
Roger F. Cram

6. The most underutilized and ignored assets and the most valuable assets of any organization are the same - the diversity* of its people.
Roger F. Cram

         *diversity = one’s abilities, interests, talents, experiences, beliefs, customs, culture, points-of-view, rituals, influences, networks, assets, and any
                beneficial characteristic distinguishing one person from another.

7. When you march into hell for a heavenly cause you won't have much company, but the company you do have will be magnificent!
Roger F. Cram

8. The courts and laws representing the people abhor criminal behavior; therefore, the courts should not sit in judgment of others if their punishments are identical to the criminal behavior they denounced and judged.  If one kills another, the courts will not show the horror of that crime by killing the offender.
Roger F. Cram

                   9. If you react to an adversary with the same anger, violence, and insults used toward you, then you have encouraged further aggression and announced

                      to others that you are also just as uncontrolled, weak, and insecure as your adversary. React to an adversary’s anger, violence, and insults

                      with wisdom, composure, and empathy, and you have calmed your adversary and announced to others you are most competent and in control.

                   Roger F. Cram

                 
                  10. Do not sail around the storms of life to avoid their wrath; rather navigate toward them, for these storms are not barriers to your route, but rather your

                    destinations. Chart your course for chaos searching for the hungry and destitute, for where chaos reigns is where your talents of peace will flourish and

                    do the most good. Seek those unable to speak for themselves and offer them a beacon of hope as you confront their oppressors for them.  Run toward,

                    not away from the cries of the anguished. The ignorant need to be educated, don’t look for them in modern schools. The angry and violent need to be

                    calmed; you won’t find them in areas where human rights are practiced.
                
  Roger F. Cram

                   11. Frequently immerse yourself in silence; be still, listen, for the truly impoverished are too weak to cry outloud.
                  Roger F. Cram

                 
                 12. Superman can fly and has x-ray vision, but he is make believe. Wonder Woman was made from clay and can deflect bullets with her wrist bracelets,

                  but she is imaginary as well. You are real! You are made from pure stardust aged to perfection for 17 billion years. You are the only life form in the solar

                  system capable of giving love. You can imagine the kind of person you want to be and then actually create that individual. And you can command the

                  energies that created life and the universe for the enrichmernt of mankind! Wow! Who is the real superhero?
                  Roger F. Cram

                 13. Our excess, if we give it away, is critical for the survival for the destitute; if we keep it, we are burdened with its storage, protection, and care.     
                  When we die, it is usually discarded by our heirs.

                  Roger F. Cram

 

                 14. I can hardly move because I ate too much at Thanksgiving. My neighbors can hardly move because they have not eaten.
                  Roger F. Cram

 

                 15. When overeating, our extra food that could nourish the hungry is transformed into our poor health and gluttony. Is this a wise exchange?
                 Roger F. Cram

 

                 16.
                 Roger F. Cram

 

                 17. Do not fill your life with love intending to earn your way into heaven, for if love is not given unconditionally, it is not love.

 
                 18. Do not expect a return on your investments of love and compassion, for if love is not given unconditionally, it is not love, but rather a personal

                 investment hoping for a future benefit.
                 Roger F. Cram
 

 

                 19. When communicating opposing ideas, the goal is not to have your opponent change his/her mind and agree with you, but to simply have your

                 opponent listen and understand your point-of-view.
                 Roger F, Cram

 

                 20. Set a goal, then enjoy the journey to its completion, all aspects and obstacles of it, the mini victories, the planning, and the setbacks, the wisdom

                 gained - not just the brief victory at the end.
                 Roger F. Cram

                
21. Every person I don't like, someone else loves. Perhaps I do not have the total picture.
