I’ve omitted the individual trees for the love of the forest.
How many books have I read thinking I could understand God? Or, how many hours have I sat in silence, practicing with Buddhists or Quakers? How about all those solitary walks contemplating desert rocks, sea shells, branches and leaves always looking for God. I cannot see God and at the same time be in rebellion against God. There is no here and there, God is tree and forest.
The forest is made of trees.
What if the image of God in us, is actually our ability to image God? What if the imaging is ongoing, in every breath, through every mind without limit or restriction? God is imaging the God self through the self. Many say God is an idea of a created mind. Who created the mind; who is the mind, who is thinking? It gives you a headache when it is really quite simple.
ART expression is past, present, and future: it is the way we remember, we integrate, and we document our aliveness. It is experienced both in and out of time. It is unique in each of us and common to us all. Are the many ideas of God so different?
You are living in God’s living room.
Imagine something you yearn for with all your being. None of us want to be alone, I mean really alone on every level. We need other. We all crave so deeply what words cannot express. Inside the mind is a world, make your world fit with your desire and you will never feel alone. Take on a new face and mind which expresses the God which includes everyone.
