Shelter has undergone a rebirth of sorts. A lineup change has allowed us to become more unified geographically, emotionally, and creatively.
"We are all spiritual persons. It doesn't matter what race we are, what sex we are or even whether we're religious or atheistic. We are all spirit souls trying to love and enjoy this world. But just as the moth joyfully flies into a flame only to meet his destruction, our material desires perpetually drag us around chasing sense gratification that leaves us empty, frustrated, and sad. That enduring pleasure and love we desire is our birthright, and can be obtained on the spiritual platform only. "
"Shelter is about individuals taking up the quest in search of that spiritual calling within us. That quest will enlighten and enliven our lives. All of the world's problems we bitch about will decrease when we stop contributing to them. If we scream for change, we must be willing to make that change. As individuals take up the responsibility to transform themselves, society gradually changes. This is the panacea for our so-called civilization."
