6 Huge Little FaithThey’re looking for huge faith while their misery is huge.They’re looking for saints, who know surelyHow far away you can go out of your bodyBut you’ve moved mountainsYou were walking through seaAlthough you said to those, who didn’t believeThat you didn’t know so muchLittle faith.
7 LOVE There is hard love Like salt or just stone hard to eat There is prediction love,Which always orders two gravesThere is inexact love like pupil who reads quicklyThere is love which is delicate like holy bread becouse there is emotion inside there is love which is crazy egoistic stolidLike autumn a bit sick with moon-lier there is love which was body and became spiritAnd the one who won’t leave becouse-it’s impossible
8 His life philosophy.If human would understand God, so god haven’t been God. Mysteries are something, what normal man can’t handle but they make world interesting. Suffer are important becouse God is fair and not everything is fair becouse people won’t need each other if it would be fair. Love proves that God exists .
