THINKING IS A TOOL

Thinking is good – perhaps even better than knowing –
Because thinking is a tool – like a knife is for cutting –

And cutting is important to distinguish one thing from another.

For most human beings, thinking is an outward-facing tool –
Rarely used for cutting the cutter.

People make exquisitely fine cuts
Truly accurate dissections of others –
But, ordinarily, fail to address themselves.

Someone able to use a knife on herself
Is able to open eyes all over her body
To see through time and space.

If she keeps cutting, she’ll end up with nothing –
Which is a result God encourages – ultimate freedom!
The place where the universe begins and ends –
Where love, truth, justice, beauty, and freedom
Constitute points from which everything else bursts into being –
Where spirit touches the material world –
After taking a long path from material to spirit –
And then repeating itself
Over and over again.

THE “FACE” OF GOD

We will be like God because we’ll be able to see God as God is.” 1 John 3:2 (my translation)

Why would anyone desire to “see” the face of God?

It’s because the more we directly come to “know” God,
The more we’ll be able to “see” like God sees –
“Love” like God loves –

The more we’ll be able, hopefully, to begin thinking and acting like God.
