“The specialness of a person’s date of birth [is] as a time of empowerment and opportunity.

 

Albert Einstein…remarked, ‘The illusion that we are separate from one another is an optical delusion of our consciousness.’ …matter is not really ‘solid’…; it is a vast amalgam of infinitesimal points, each exerting a complex web of forces and counter-forces on its fellows…

 

Physically, there is no real division between your body and mine. But there is a deeper reality than that described by the laws of physics…

Every individual human being has a soul—a distinct spiritual identity, and a distinct mission in life.

 

This is what came into being on your birthday… Birth marks the point at which your body received and fused with your soul, the point at which you attained your individuality….

 

You, as an individual, are special, unique, and utterly indispensable.  No person can fulfill the specific role in God’s creation entrusted to you.”
