Oh God

Before getting into the crux of this, it seems necessary for me to clarify on my relationship with God, Yahweh, Allah, Great Spirit, Nature, Mother Earth/Father Sky, The Divine, The Universe, The Creator etc. and any other names/labels we have bestowed.

God is.
Love is.
It is.
We are.

To elaborate, God is when my fleshy feet first touch the warm, wet petrichor perfumed ground after a rain. God is the ground. God was the rain. God is the sun precariously peeking out from gray clouds, shining down a single ray. God is also the clouds sliding over the sun again in a slow celebration. God is in the rhythm of my breath and heartbeat syncing when I sit under a dogwood tree to meditate. God is the iridescent persimmon and poppy red electric flower of life patterns I sometimes see once I’ve closed my eyes.

I’ve hugged and sung God, as a dogwood tree, a serene and supple song. God was also the song.

God is that rushing and gurgling sensation when I have to take a shit. God is also the shit that kept me in the washroom for ten minutes. God is the toilet that had to endure my hairy bum and then slurp the poo into pipes.

God is the person who has taken umbrage at my previous metaphor. God is the words either spoken or typed from that person to me. God is the slight frustration fuming and heating my heartbeat, reddening my cheeks as  feel a minor bit (maybe 5-10%) insulted as someone feels the need to project their labels unto me. God is again the detaching breath that reminds me this whole thing is absurd.

God is.
Love is.
It is.
We are.

I could go on, but we don’t have infinity in this current, fleshy form. But I hope you receive my point. If not, I’m more than happy to elaborate through messaging of some sorts or the comments below.

God is.
Love is.
It is.
We are.

This is why I see this whole debate and occasional argument about God to be useless. God is as much a being one can pray to inasmuch as God is also a decomposing, buried body with worms chewing on the toes. God is also the worms and dirt. God is science and dogma.

Instead of focusing on how to live and w with other people, many of us on this planet are still trying to define this vast and infinite force. Deep down, all of us know what is and is not. But many of us are getting caught up the in the minutia of pointless garbled egos. Thou art God. But at the same time we are not completely all one with God because we are here, now…together experiencing ourselves subjectively which is quite the amazing paradox! But deep down, we know the people who are not representing the true-true. Not everyone can. But I will say this, what if you replaced the word God with Love in whatever books and stories we have. Can you imagine the shift in perception that would cause?

I’m just saying what if we all put that same passion and reverence toward love as we do this rather silly debate that should really be put to bed? Deep down, we know, we grok.

God is.
Love is.
It is.
We are.
