THE LANGUAGE OF “NO THING”

In God’s realm – beyond speech, form, and image –
Lies a place
Where human language is a lie.

Where reality is expressed only through love.

Not only will it be necessary to lose our ego –
We’ll also be required to lose our stiff adult mind as well

In order to become spontaneous as little children –
So that wars, exploitation, and suffering can finally come to an end

When we’ll be left solely in “God’s Kingdom”–
The one Jesus constantly prayed for.

THE AMBIGUITY OF GENDER IN THE HOLY (for Mark and Ruth)

Divine wisdom, being feminine,
Took on flesh in a male Jesus.

However, the great door to the next spiritual dimension,
Consisting of a perfect, yet ever changing, balance
Of Love, Truth, Justice, and Beauty,
Will open only to a she.

When she does decide to come through that door
And enter our universe
All the previous “male gods” will quickly be forgotten
And people will start attempting to live as God would live
If God were a young female avatar.

Strength, intellect, courage, and compassion
Will be reflected in the face of this divine female being
Manifested as an ecstatic Central or South American holy girl –
The purest girl in the world.

HOW MANY AVATARS NEED TO MARCH INTO OBLIVION FOR US TO FINALLY GET THE MESSAGE?

Asking God for specific results, things, or hoped-for events
Has been defined as “spiritual materialism” –
The kind of petitioning prayer that, all the way back to the beginning,
Turned people into spiritual consumers or merchants.

This buying, selling, demanding, and pleading with the Divine
Has nothing to do with the true essence of God.

God is Love and Truth – and nothing else –
After Jesus, the Buddha, Mohammed, and Moses –
Haven’t you gotten the message yet?

LIFE AS A HUMAN BEING

God is hardest to acknowledge
When life seems easy.

God appears most frequently to hearts that suffer –
Not those on vacation.

Suffering never ends
But neither does joy.

Joy and suffering make up a bi-colored ball –
Each failing to come into existence without the other.

In fact, we only experience joy
To the same degree we’re willing to suffer.

Isn’t that life
As a human being?
