I was about to post some stuff on palmistry symbology when I remembered this thread:

What if Heavenly Mother is the Holy Ghost?
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.

I was also talking about this with my friend yesterday (he visited from out of town) and he explained that he doesn't really believe the Holy Ghost is literally omnipresent and always busy whispering into everyone's souls, but that he was more of a foreman over revelatory processes. I like that concept and it is compatible with a humanoid Holy Ghost.

Maybe that role is filled by Heavenly Mother. Certainly possible.
Boys are governed by rules. Men are governed by principles.

Often I hear doubt being presented as the opposite of faith but I think certainty does a better job of filling that role. Doubts can help faith grow, certainty almost always makes faith shrink. --nibbler

I like it, Beefster:

There. I fixed it for you. :D

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.
