When I see the paint in the dish, little grains of sand swirling around I think of the universe, time and space, color and shape, chaos and organized beauty. In all those molecules how can i think There is no You. I do believe creation has been made for love, transformed by love and kept and sustained for love. It is so perfectly chaotic and in balance at the same time. Why is it so damn hard for us to love everything around us without excuse or appraisal? I can tell you, it is because we cannot stand to think, There is no You.
We are light and know nothing of shadow,
We are water and know nothing of reflection,
We are thought and know nothing of the one thinking.
What will it take to understand who we are?
We spend lots of time defining and re defining God, the universal energy, the source, etc. When we get it just how we want it, we defend it, protect it and get it to work for us. But what if? What if God is like shade in the forest, made from all kind of trees, oak, cypress, palms and fir. Together and separately the trees all give the same shade. What if God is like a pan cake and we add stuff, like fruit, nuts, yogurt or granola hoping it will be better. All the variations are there without changing the pan cakes. What if God is the alphabet, hundreds of words, languages and expressions all with various meanings but always the same 24 letters. There is no You, because in defining the “you”, you become separate from the very source you are witness to. When will we understand that shade is there because of the trees, the pancakes are there because of the basic four ingredients and communication happens because of strange little shapes on paper?
Stop fighting over the variations
and start living the joy of abundance and diversity.
