Believing in God

The issue with people who say, "I believe in God.", is that it's often their God they believe in and not the God of all people, of all living things, of this earth, and of the universe. They only believe their God is God despite no religion is a majority in the world.

When they say they believe in God, they are also saying your God isn't God, and to many, even the enemy of their God and them. Doesn't the Bible say God is the God of all men, meaning all people? Doesn't that include people of all religions and faith?

Would God really say what they say?

Nobody & Somebody

We are just one of the 7 billion people alive today and one of the nearly 110 billion people who have ever lived. We are nobody and we are somebody. We are universal and we are individual. We don't get to choose which, and yet, we do get to live our live to be indiviual, ourself.

I Wish

I wish... Don't we all?

Inside Us All

Inside each of us is a spirit few people see, and fewer people know. If only we chose the freedom we have to express that spirit and the freedom to share it with more people than those few. Each of us has the freedom, if only we dared ourself to be free.

No matter our age, we are all young at heart. It is how we remember ourself and want to be remembered. When we were young.

Winning & Losing

Is the worst day winning better than the best day losing? Is an ugly win better than a great loss? Is winning by the other team losing better than you losing because while you played well the other team played better? Is winning and losing really about how you played than the score?

Why is that when we see someone talking out loud to themself we assume they're crazy? Ok, before cellphones came along, since now you can't tell if someone appearing to talk to themself is actually doing that or on a call, but still if they were just talking with themself, why do we call them crazy, but when someone says they talk to God, they're not crazy?

Since when does it matter who the imaginary friend is the person is talking with when they are talking to themself? Why is God the only one someone can talk with themself where we don't consider them crazy? Isn't the idea of talking to an imaginary universal supreme being crazy?

Wouldn't you think they needed a reality check talking to this imaginary "friend" to help them regain some sense of sanity? Wouldn't it be better if they talked to someone who actually spoke back, like in person than their imagination?

This last week I bought Woodstock's (company name) Tibetan prayer chimes, seen left. I love the sound and resonance from them and now sit outside my office window under an eave protected from the fierce winds from the north and west which we often experience and chimes gently in southwest winds over the wall a few feet away.

This means they don't chime too much or too often and always fade with their beautiful resonance. They'll be quiet for a while, even a long spell, and then with a slight breeze, their quiet sounds resonant like they're enveloping the world around you and all you hear are the sounds.

They have a quiet way of gently being there during the night to share your restful sleep. And even in a strong wind, they barely move, just enought to softly chime.

The tag which explains the chimes reads as follows:

"The enchanting sounds of this chime take the listener on a musical journey across the landscape of time. It is tuned to the five tones that make sup the principal motif of a work by the great Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu. Commissioned for the Canadian group NEXUS and the Boston Symphony Orchestra to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Carnigie Hall, From me flows what you call Time features two large custom sets of Woodstock Chime. The chimes are suspended above the audience and activated by colored ribbons - representing Tibetan prayer flags - that extend from the chimes to the performer on the stage."

This is the music notes of the chime.

A portion of the sale of the chimes goes to support the Tibet House US.

Why do you argue I can't prove there isn't a God when you can't prove there is one? Simply citing a book, which hasn't been proven to be historically accurate, correct or true, isn't proof of God, only the words of men who want others to believe there is a God.

So, can either be proven? Is the absence of proof of one side proof of the other side? Or is the absence of proof means what it is, neither side can be proven, only believed? And assuming our believe is proof isn't proof, isn't reality, or anything but our imagination and desire to believe it.

So, God is still relative, if God exists or not. And nothing can prove or disprove it.

Least & Most

What we least want and most fear, growing old. And not just growing old, but growing old alone and not graciously. In the end, however, there is nothing else, growing old is just what it is, getting old. Growing with age is optional. Our choice if we have the opportunity. What else is there?

A Thought

Read this in passing, "Nothing like being stabbed by a warm, fuzzy feeling."
