There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something tomorrow. Man cannot live without hope.
We hope for the Fatherhood of God, and the Brotherhood of Man! For Life, Death, a Resurrection, and a Future Life!
We imagine the starry-decked heavens, where we hope at last to arrive by the aid of the theological ladder, which Jacob, in his vision, saw extending from Earth to Heaven; the three principal rounds of which are denominated, Faith, Hope, and Charity, teaching faith in God, hope in Immortality, and charity to all Mankind.
Yes, "Hope!" With silv’ry tongue and dainty fingers, Hope plays upon the golden strings, and sings to us the cheering melody of A Final Resurrection and An Endless Life!
The comforting strains of her angelic music reverberate through all the corridors of our ancient and mystic Temple; its sweet cadences cheer us while we live--comfort us when we come to die--and linger, like a pleasant requiem, about our newly-made graves, when we sleep the sleep of death!
Yes, Hope is an anchor to the soul,--both sure, and steadfast! and is anchored to that within the vail! Yes, Hope plants the Sprig of Evergreen, at the head of our graves, and sits there, through all the intervening years, singing the Paeans of Immortality and proclaiming that our lifeless clay shall be raised and that, in a land far brighter and happier than this, our bodies and souls, reunited, shall forever bloom in Eternal Spring!
For this, let us hope, and to this, let us press forward!

Faith being the first principle in revealed religion, and the foundation of all righteousness, necessarily claims the first place in unfolding an understanding of the doctrine of Jesus Christ.
As faith is the moving cause of all action in temporal concerns, so it is in spiritual. Had it not been for the principle of faith the worlds would never have been framed, neither would man have been formed of the dust - it is the principle by which Jehovah works, and through which he exercises power over all temporal, as well as eternal things.
Faith rests on the knowledge that God actually exists, and a correct idea of his character, perfections and attributes which are; Knowledge, Power, Justice, Judgement, Mercy, and Truth.
An actual knowledge that the course of life which one is pursuing, is according to God's will. The faith of every rational being can be made perfect and fruitful, abounding in righteousness.
The sacrifice of all worldly things is required to obtain enough faith for the full salvation of your soul.
Faith, then, is the principle by which the heavenly hosts perform their works, and by which they enjoy all their felicity. Only where there is faith, is there knowledge, God's creations, and all things that pertain to him.
In the following pages, we will learn, that faith is the substance or assurance which men have and men hope for of the existence and evidence of things which they have not seen; and the principle of action in all intelligent beings.

The Synergy of Man

"Two heads are better than one."
Synergy is the habit of creative cooperation. It is teamwork, open-mindedness, and the adventure of finding new solutions to old problems. But it doesn't just happen on its own. It's a process, and through that process, people bring all their personal experience and expertise to the table. Together, they can produce far better results that they could individually. Synergy lets us discover jointly things we are much less likely to discover by ourselves. It is the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. One plus one equals three, or six, or sixty--you name it.
When people begin to interact together genuinely, and they're open to each other's influence, they begin to gain new insight. The capability of inventing new approaches is increased exponentially because of differences.
Valuing differences is what really drives synergy. Do you truly value the mental, emotional, and psychological differences among people? Or do you wish everyone would just agree with you so you could all get along? Many people mistake uniformity for unity; sameness for oneness. One word--boring! Differences should be seen as strengths, not weaknesses. They add zest to life.

History is important. In centuries past this statement would have seemed self-evident. Ancient cultures devoted much time and effort to teaching their children family history. It was thought that the past helps a child understand who he is. Modern society, however, has turned its back on the past. We live in a time of rapid change, a time of progress. We prefer to define ourselves in terms of where we are going, not where we come from. Our ancestors hold no importance for us. They lived in times so different from our own that they are incapable of shedding light on our experience. Man is so much smarter now than he was even ten years ago that anything from the past is outdated and irrelevant to us. Therefore the past, even the relatively recent past, is, in the minds of most of us, enshrouded by mists and only very vaguely perceived. Our ignorance of the past is not the result of a lack of information, but of indifference. We do not believe that history matters.
But history does matter. It has been said that he who controls the past controls the future. Our view of history shapes the way we view the present, and therefore it dictates what answers we offer for existing problems.

Rough Notes:

The majority of human beings on this planet believe in spirits - both their own spiritual aspect and the existence of non-physical spirits. Yet modern science has nothing to say about spirits and considers the subject non-relevant. Our use of the phrase "Spiritual principles" implies that "conscious life" exists at levels beyond the physical. We imply that there is a universal spirit or mind. We also imply that there are spiritual beings in the form of each one of us, as well as beings just like us existing throughout the universe both with and without physical bodies. Though science cannot prove it, we all know that thoughts and emotions like love, faith, fear, emotional suffering, and happiness alike exist in some form that should be provable using the correct science. By bridging the gap between our science institutions and our institutions of religion and philosophy, we open up many more avenues of ideas that help us in our quest to answer many important questions like "What does Cosmism have to do with my salvation?", "How did our ancestors deal with their spirituality?", why are we here?" "how did we get here?" "where are we going?". As part of this theory, we attempts to answer these types of questions as well as their association to ancient traditions, rituals, ordinances, and philosophies.
Weather spiritual or corporeal, principles are used everywhere. In Science, ancient history, the restored gospel, politics, economics, and our study of the electric universe.
