a question in yr nerves is lit
yet you know there is no answer fit
to satisfy you insure you not to quit
keep it in yr mind and don't forget
that it is not he or she or it that you belong to
We see what we want to see, they say; so why, I always asked, do I see the worst ?
I see what will threaten me, what will cut me down to size, and practice dealing with the eventuality of judgment falling on my head from an encounter with what will threaten me. I make up the threat, and then make up a failed confrontation with it, and feel the shame of failing as if it had actually happened.
None of this happens, really.
Life happens. It has its first causes billions of years ago, and the first causes themselves probably do not have any First Cause, it is agreed amongst us today. Just probabilities.
A stray electron is a very rare bird indeed. Electrons cluster together in a field of nothingness somehow held together by forces we pretend to understand by exploiting. I built a computer, therefore I understand electromagnetism. That is as silly as saying I made a watch therefore I understand the nature of time.
There is no such thing as time without space.
There is never enough space in the world for me to fit in comfortably everywhere. Unless I stop fretting and realize I only must deal with right here, right now. Everything is o.k. now. No reason to think that if I remain vigilant, something may go awry.
But it always does.
This makes us realize we are not God.
We fret that there is no God, when we realize we are not God.
But God has already told us that He is that He is. ''I am that I am".
That's the whole point and I don't think even God understands that, because why would He even think about it? It would be like a fish thinking about the nature of water.
