Aren’t all the historical “gods”
Just symbolic collections of mass popular cultural “egos”
Intensely promoted so all the little egos have a Big Ego to pray to
And, consequently, be validated – giving “meaning” to their lives.
However, “collective” meaning has no meaning at all.
Both little egos and Big Egos are a waste of time –
Only freedom matters
Because freedom empowers us to address “reality”
Which, by definition, is constantly changing –
And why we need freedom to do likewise.
Actually, God is the only Reality –
There’s really nothing else – since fantasy doesn’t count –
We need freedom to love reality –
Each second, minute, hour, month, year,
And eternity of our lives.
To meet God “directly,” we’ll need a more radical approach:
Assuming that we have to “go up” – i.e., ascend – in order to experience “ecstasy”
Requires, for good balance, for us to also “go low” –
Into “humility,” “modesty,” and “humbleness”
That is, in order to get high, we’ll first have to go low –
And, to meet God, face to face, we might even be required to “disappear” altogether.
In other words, an ego (much less a big ego) will never experience God “directly” –
Everyone knows this – since most male religious leaders
Possess the biggest egos – and look at how empty they’ve turned out to be.
No one talks about this –
Which is fine with God
Who prefers meeting in secret with her most un-famous friends.
