People, today, are much too busy to think about God –
Too busy to pray – and also –
Too busy to even notice the brilliance of Nature’s seasonal displays.
God wanted to get people over their material obsessions to live a more spiritual life –
But, unfortunately, people haven’t been concerned about that at all.
Increasing numbers of people are moving ever more quickly through their lives –
Like human bullets shot from birth –
Ignoring their need for slowness – that is, taking their time.
God is surprised at this –
But shouldn’t be.
A wind is rising, but nobody notices
Since they’re situated so deep inside their office parks.
Flowers have been releasing exquisite odors all morning
But peoples’ noses are stuck deep inside their coffee cups.
God gave us a natural world in which to live
But we’ve constructed a separate world designed for conventional lives.
I think we’ve already made our choice:
The only question being –
Is it truly irrevocable?
