THE BIGGEST INVISIBLE PARTY

Humanly, I think it’s impossible to know much about God
Except through “spirit” – and, primarily, through “love.”

Generally, God is unknowable to human beings
As if hidden behind a “mystical cloud”
Despite humanity’s best creative images and poetry.

But that cloud, surprisingly, sometimes opens to reveal God
When lightning flashes of radiant love
Break through our quotidian existence.

It’s certainly true that human beings are able to love
More than they’ll ever be able to fully understand.

For example, love is humanity’s “side entrance”
Into a timeless, ecstatic celebration
God has been producing on a regular basis for God’s closest friends –

The biggest invisible party
Held at infinite undisclosed locations
Ever given.

THE TRUE “THEORY OF EVERYTHING”

Universalist theoretical physicists, like Einstein and Hawking, have worked at developing a “grand unification theory” –
Combining cosmology (star theory) with quantum mechanics (particle theory)
Into a “Theory of Everything.”

But that wouldn’t really be everything, would it?
Since such a theory would be limited to “physical nature” – (defined by the Ancient Greeks as “physics”).

By omitting the subjective, a large segment of existence would be left out
Since physical space takes up just part of reality –
While consciousness, of course, constitutes the other part.

Neither “makes sense” without the other!

Physical space – from galaxies to particles – encompasses the objective part of reality –

While psychic space – including mental/emotional thoughts and sensations, ranging from a high of ecstasy to the low of an itch; spiritual realities – like “love,” “truth,” “justice,” and “beauty;” along with “meaning” itself; as well as all the “mathematical tools” we use to measure anything in physical space – whether galaxies, or even the entire universe, by employing humanity’s elegant silver equations – is equally an important part of reality, in its own subjective way.

(So which of the two do you think is the “greater”?)

In fact, isn’t it true that both are essential aspects of “ultimate reality” –

Moreover, these two aspects of reality appear to be not only inter-related,
But, in some senses, and from God’s deeper/wider perspective,
They might, actually, be the same thing.

OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

Since

God’s relationship to the world is “transcendent,” i.e., above and beyond the material world –

and

God’s relationship to ourselves is also “immanent” – as human beings’ highest spiritual potential

Then, it follows that:

These two may be true simultaneously!

That is, God is both infinitely beyond and infinitely within us!

 

 

THE PURE OF HEART

“Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall “see” God.” (Mathew 5:8)

What does it mean – to be “pure of heart”?

I think it means to live without ego
So that nothing can interfere with in-coming reality –

The kind of “reality” that overlaps with a true experience of God.

That’s what “enlightenment” also is –
What happens when one wakes up from egoistic fantasies and dreams
Into the daylight of reality.

A heart that’s not pure is like a little red engine
That is perpetually manufacturing dreams for the ego “self.”

A heart that’s pure, however, “sees” reality
Which is what God wants –
In other words, God constantly encourages us to see God’s face
Which we now know is identical with reality!
