"To find your religion, it's not enough just to open one's mind and think deeply. Each of us must also open all of our senses and experience the world. Religion grows from the heart as much as the head, and it cries out to fuse body and mind.

Faith is an orientation of the whole personality, a total response…. Having faith means that our lives hold together and make sense at a deeper level, rather than seeming absurd. Therefore your religion is something you not only think about but also sing, dance, eat, paint, and sculpt.

To find your religion you must engage all of your senses. You should feel it as well as explain it, hear it as well as see it. Taste it as well as smell it."
