Spiritually Speaking – Ceiling and Visibility Unlimited

George Herbert Walker Bush was the 41st president of the United States.  He flew combat missions in World War II.  This is part of a letter he wrote his five children before the start of the Gulf War in which he discussed the phrase.

“CAVU was the kind of weather we Navy pilots wanted when we were to fly off our carrier in the Pacific,” he said. “We had little navigational instrumentation, so we wanted to CAVU, ceiling and visibility unlimited, and because of the five of you whose hugs I can still feel, whose own lives made me so proud, I can confidently tell my guardian angel that my life is CAVU and it will be that way until I die. All because of you.”

  • “Be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech.

  • Be unjust to no man, and show all meekness to all men.

  • Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression.

  • Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all thine acts.”

“Be an ornament to the countenance of truth, a crown to the brow of fidelity, a pillar of the temple of righteousness, a breath of life to the body of mankind, an ensign of the hosts of justice, a luminary above the horizon of virtue, a dew to the soil of the human heart, an ark on the ocean of knowledge, a sun in the heaven of bounty, a gem on the diadem of wisdom, a shining light in the firmament of thy generation, a fruit upon the tree of humility.”

Baha’u’llah, The Baha’i World Faith

“If you give birth to the genius within you, it will free you. If you do not give birth to the genius within you,

it will destroy you.”

Jesus, The Gnostic Gospel of Thomas

“E” is for Earthrise

“I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.” Corinthians 1:10

“God has created the world as one—the boundaries are marked out by man.”

“The conviction that we belong to one human family is at the heart of the Bahá’í Faith. The principle of the oneness of humankind is “the pivot round which the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh revolve…”

Take a look at this spectacular view of where we all dwell.

“In December of 1968, the crew of Apollo 8 became the first people to leave our home planet and travel to another body in space. But as crew members Frank Borman, James Lovell, and William Anders all later recalled,

the most important thing they discovered was Earth.”
