JESUS SAYS

Jesus says: “Build my church with love” –
Not stones.

Jesus says: “Build my church with truth” –
Not nationalism.

Jesus says: “Build my church with justice” –
Not prejudice.

Jesus says: “Build my church with beauty” –
Not inside a parking lot.

Jesus says: “Be like me” –
The “me” that’s the same as the true self you.

THE GERMANS

They like to measure things –
In fact, “things” constitute “poetry” for them –
Like manipulating microns
Or fashioning the best teeth in the world.

They often fall into harsh prejudices or judgments, however,
–  (like other people enjoy jumping into lakes) –
Against Jews or Blacks
Who have experienced Germans walking – not on water – but on their heads.

Life for Germans is Romantic
As opposed to Real.

Their religion is anti-spirit
Because it’s impossible to manipulate God
Without placing “Him” inside a spiritual-materialistic religious organization –
Far distant from any possible change.

Germans are heroic –
But sin in their lack of humbleness –
In fact, they’ve long believed – back to the time they were still living in forests –
That they’re a “race” of heroes –
Especially when it comes to manufacturing guns, swords, and sausages.

Hansel and Gretel are typical good Germans
Baked in an oven by a bad old witch –
Who tricked them –
Since Germans are always innocent of everything.

THE SINGLE SOLE MESSAGE

The world is only as “real” as our senses will allow us to experience –
Since with limited senses we can only interact inside a limited world.

Also, the world is only as real as the ideas we take mental “rides” on –
Rides created inside our heads – and run just for fun.

If nothing we experience or think is actually fully “real,” however –
Then that experience or thought must be our subjective reality –
While positing an infinite “beyond” which no human being will ever reach.

So, what if “gratitude” is all we’ll ever be allowed to authentically experience –
With gratitude being our “Heaven?”

What if the single sole authentic message we’ll ever be given
Is “Thank you God?”

“Thank you.”
