What can we know of God?
We live, awash in a potent steroidal bath
urging competition, domination, conspiracy,
sexual display, status-cementing false rage,
constant worry about the Joneses,
and what the Joneses are plotting for us.
We even choose the "in" god, maybe Gaia,
or EST, or conservative reform Judaism,
or botox, all to serve monkey pack realities.
Can it be turned off?
Just let go, and it turns off,
The humming that's left,
aside from being the sound
of the blood in your cranial arteries,
is the sound of god.
So god lives in your cranial arteries?
And every other part.
You feel it right now.
You just don't realize it.
Go to a wooded area.
Sit on a rock, and shut up.
listen to your head veins.
Observe the diagrammatic
lesson spread out in the
tree branches, where life
followed the branch tips
to the sun.
Know it or not
God is manifest already
in your silence
and in your
Not being mentally gifted, I guess I am out of luck. Bummer.
How do you "picture" the reality of "all that there is"?
Describing God with words like love, compassion, & power is like completely describing the earth as wind, fire, & water.
