Each of our lives is a part
Of the lengthy process of the universe
Gradually waking up and becoming aware of itself.
God is a rabbit in a hat
As well as the magician who owns both rabbit and hat
Along with an audience raptly watching.
When the lights go down
Pulling himself out of himself –
Even God is surprised
At what he’s been able to accomplish.
God, hat, and rabbit –
Are monistic –
Since through Spinoza’s eyes they’re identical
Along with the audience
Cheering or groaning
Depending upon where they sit.
God, when empty, became lonely for himself –
So sparked an inorganic universe
Of whirling, expanding particles
Bursting into existence –
Which eventually changed from original black/grey to “all” colors
On its way to organic life –
And then changed again upon achieving consciousness –
Where, finally, God was able to kiss God
On the lips
Then, God changed one last time
Creating cognitive human spirit –
Where, at its peak, Jesus came to life, beyond any colors
Up on a mountain, transfigured, face shining like the sun –
Garments “white as light.”
