I believe in the Motherhood of God. I believe in the blessed Trinity of Father, Mother and Child. I believe that God is here, and that we are as near him now as we ever shall be. I do not believe He started this world a-going and went away and left it. I believe in the sacredness of the human body, this transient dwelling place of a living soul, and so I deem it the duty of every man and woman to keep his or her body beautiful through right thinking and right living. I believe that the love of man for woman and the love of woman for man, is holy; and that this love in all of its promptings is as much an emanation of the Divine Spirit as man's love for God, or the most daring hazards of the human mind. I believe in salvation through economic, social and spiritual freedom. I believe John Ruskin, William Morris, Henry Thoreau, Walt Whitman and Leo Tolstoy to be Prophets of God, and they should rank in mental reach and spiritual insight with Elijah, Hosea, Ezekiel and Isaiah. I believe we are now living in Eternity as much as we ever shall be. I believe that the best way to prepare for a Future Life is to be kind, live one day at a time, and do the work you can do the best, doing it as well as you can. I believe there is no devil but fear. I believe no one can harm you but yourself. I believe that we are all sons of God and it doth not yet appear what we shall be. I believe in freedom -- social, economic, domestic, political, mental, spiritual. I believe in every man minding his own business. I believe that men are inspired today as much as men ever were. I believe in sunshine, fresh air, friendship, calm sleep, beautiful thoughts. I believe in the paradox of success through failure. I believe in the purifying process of sorrow, and I believe that death is a manifestation of Life. I believe there is no better preparation for a life to come than this: do your work as well as you can, and be kind. I believe the Universe is planned for good. I believe it is possible that I will make other creeds and change this one, or add to it, from time to time, as new light may come to me.
