God may be more like a quality, a mode, or a channel – like spontaneity or freedom –
Than a person or thing.
God also has no ascertainable “size” (like a universe or multi-universes)
And certainly doesn’t have the kind of “power” allegedly possessed by comic book heroes –
God is actually more like “love” or “truth” or “justice” or “beauty.”
God also is not a number – no matter how infinite –
Instead, God is a word that anybody can say.
Nor is God an ancient idea, even if once brilliant but now frozen in space –
Rather, God is always moving – like wind or water –
In other words, God is always a surprise to human beings.
One can’t “swear” by God, much less even know for certain God exists,
Yet it would be a mistake to give up on God
By adopting some substitute – like science, technology, or some political ideology.
Invisible, God, nevertheless, is always present.
God knows what we want and, more importantly, what we need –
And is happy to provide us with the latter – whether we’re ready or not.
God takes our hand, and gently, kisses it.
God gives us a lifetime of gifts which, invariably, we forget receiving.
Here’s one of God’s gifts – right now:
Close your eyes and turn around three times – then open up your eyes again –
Everything you see from that moment on – and for the rest of your life –
Is a gift from God!
Is this so difficult to understand?
