Let’s have some fun with this blog, today? Okay? In spite of your inner involvement with a specific idea about God, please remain awake to what you may learn from this blog. Thank you.
By now, in life, I imagine that you realize that anything that remains a puzzle, troubles your mind; you are bombarded with anxious thoughts. Life can be delightfully simple if everything is explainable – but everything ain’t!
Let’s take God, for instance. Until recently, science has had a problem with God because God cannot be explained with a mathematical formula. Science loves to demystify everything and God cannot be demystified.
You are, right now, uniting yourself with a natural law – if you are still with me. How are you doing? We can only see the absolute folly of our mental ways when we remember that ‘all is well’ in spite of life’s myriad mysteries. Okay, let’s go:
If butterflies could think, and had an idea of God, their God would be a butterfly, would he not? Butterflies can fly. Man can’t. Why would a butterfly think God is a man?
Well, if every animal had an idea about God, you can bet that God would look just like every animal. That’s funny … or is it? We insist God looks like us … how do we know?
We’re having fun here. This blog isn’t really about God, it’s about how your mind works to make sense of everything. The problem with making sense of everything is that we take the mystery out of the vastness of reality. We also take the mystery out of the vastness of our potential when we try to explain ourselves. What’s this got to do with our God conversation?
Einstein repeatedly said, in his latter years, “Man is God, ignorant of the fact.” He was not excluding any other beings from also being God, but he was excluding mathematical formulas from explaining God. He also said at age 25, “I’m a scientist, of course I do NOT believe in God,” and at age 65, “I’m a scientist, of course I believe in God.” I love that!
If YOU really are ‘God in a bod’ ignorant of the fact; what NEW would you instantly do, if you awakened to this news! DO YOU NOT SEE WHAT BEAUTIFUL WORK AWAITS YOU?
If this blog offends your religious philosophy – I apologize. I am not disputing any religion – I am just wondering out loud and sharing it with you.
Please give a comment and let the readers know what you would do differently if you really believed you were God – ignorant of the fact – and now you remember.
