Art aficionados sure get excited when they come upon a painting by a master like Picasso or Rembrandt in which the signature is clearly visible. It assures the painting's worth in the millions of dollars. How much more the signature of the Creator upon each human soul!

If one could decipher it closely one would detect in each soul the unique difference of the divine signature. The familiar acronym for GOD applies here: Generator Of Diversity G-O-D. We can spend our lifetimes plumbing the depths of the mysteries of that signature upon our souls. When we think we have "solved" one part of it or come to understand better that part, another part is highlighted by experience or circumstance that seems strange and the mystery is replenished. Each of us is, after all, a masterpiece; that is -a piece of The Master.
