"You hide your light from everybody, yet I see such divinity within you. You should stand before them all, unveiled, blinding them with your innermost power."
"But I thought you would believe that I should be much more humble. Our system of belief relies upon that neutrality."
"You are in no position to be humble, but you do have grace in your authority. Anybody who can see you closely enough will realise your modest nature."
"I feel as if I have gone against everything I ever believed in to be in this position. And yet it is the only option I feel I have to make any certain change. It is hard to find a balance in my spirit and my way of life, to have humility in these gilded walls. I assumed that you would be mortified, I feel ashamed of it all."
"This is all an operatic stage for you to project your voice from, I do not see you entwined with it, simply placed upon it. Your spirituality is inside, reaching out through your fingertips."
"But I am so disconnected from it all. If I were more in tune with the universe, I would have known what had happened to my former colleagues, my friends and those abandoned children. I would have felt it somewhere inside of me."
"Some disasters are too vast that they become a thick mass that is indigestible; you cannot breathe it in, you cannot feel it in your mortal range of emotions. You only experience it in deep meditation, and I assure you it is not something to try now. The only connection you need to feel is with your family, and with your people."
