God is always shining into our world – but we’re told it’s too much light for our poor eyes –
So religions segregate a few tinders out of the blazing torches carried into the world by God’s Illumined Messengers and hide them deep inside stone fortresses to preserve them for the ages – but God’s light doesn’t need this protection.
When people finally become courageous enough to remove their hands from their eyes, they’ll find they no longer need these protected little flames –
Because, then, they’ll be free enough to go outside themselves and see what’s happening in God’s world –
