What’s “good” would be to have a direct relationship with God –
That’s the ultimate!
Christianity, however, requires a relationship between its believers and Christ –
Who, in turn, has a great relationship with God.
Personally, I view Jesus as a “shining example”
Of someone able to achieve a direct relationship with God –
Not to sublimate to – but to emulate –
Especially since neither the Bible nor any church or other religious institution,
And not even Jesus himself (no matter what the religion says), is capable of substituting
For the real God.
The world doesn’t judge
Much less take notice of
What we do.
Most of the time, we’re not sinners –
Only imperfectly real –
No matter how many Messianic feathers we stick in our caps.
The real reason we can’t directly see God – or anything else for that matter –
Is because our ego mask has no real “eyes” –
Except for a couple of tiny mirrors
The truth is: There’s no real
“Christ,” “Church,” or “Bible” –
They don’t actually exist!
Just God, who they only partially represent, is truly alive in our world.
For example, it’s love that makes possible “real” life, Truth that opens minds to original ideas
And allowing justice to others that gives us the ability to compromise –
Beauty, for its part, however, always takes its own time
Opening a door for God to enter –
Which is why an experience of true beauty is so magical –
So much so that everyone dreams of experiencing it “in full flower”
At least once in their lives!
