Source of All Truth
I was going to start with some physical goals but I feel a need to address the fact that it is important that this process of self-improvement be guided by personal inspiration from the source of all truth. I am praying that I will always be in tune with my Heavenly Father and His wisdom and that is why the spiritual point of the star faces upward. Anything that I come up with or that I have read from a more secular source has to be in line with the correct principles I ultimately learn from Him. I also know that it is important to always remember that we are all entitled to our own personal inspiration that comes from seeking our Heavenly Father in prayer. He is our best authority, and He is the author of all wisdom.
I also love this quote by James E. Faust that helps me know there are many sources of truth.
“We claim that God’s inspiration is not limited to the Latter-day Saints. The First Presidency has stated: “The great religious leaders of the world such as Mohammed, Confucius, and the Reformers, as well as philosophers including Socrates, Plato, and others, received a portion of God’s light. Moral truths were given to them by God to enlighten whole nations and to bring a higher level of understanding to individuals. … We believe that God has given and will give to all peoples sufficient knowledge to help them on their way to eternal salvation”
