I Respectfully Disagree

I came across this quote by Robert Svaboda, today:

Every human being is a mirror through which God longs to see himself.

And, I can't agree with this one. Mostly because I don't believe that God/Goddess is as egocentric as we Humans. Not that there's anything wrong with ego, because it is the spark that keeps us alive. But, it isn't the seat of our understanding of Spirit. As a matter of fact, it's generally Ego that gets in the way of our journey toward Spirit.

No, I humbly disagree with this quote. I'll give you my version of it and you can tell me what you think:

Every Human Being is a mirror through which God's face is seen.

Yes, it is a lot of responsibility to be the face of God to all you encounter. To be the animator of Spirit in this world of ours. But, I like a challenge. Don't you?

Silent Sermon Sunday

Hello God~
I do not know what to think about the upheaval...
I do know that change is coming.
Please help me to understand
that you guide the outcome,
And trust in the times to come.
Somehow, the middle east seemed so far away
from all of us here...
But, now I begin to understand that it is only lines on a map away.
Help me to remember that you hold us joyfully close to you.
~ Amen

Bird Brain

So, just a day or so ago, I was going on about seeing a robin for the first time this year, and hoping it would be a sign of things to come.

This is what my world looks like this morning.

Moral of the story? They don't say, "Bird brain," without good cause. Then again, a bird is about as correct about predicting the weather as a weather person on the evening news. Except the bird is cheaper. Which, if I am going to get wrong information, I'd prefer to pay as little as possible...

I think I'm going to follow this lion's example, and just go back to sleep. Wake me when spring is here.

Dear Spirit:
Please give me fortitude & patience
When I can see the road so clearly,
While the one who must walk it refuses.
~ Amen

An Open Letter to Afghanistan

Dear Afghanistan:

I have been informed by my son that he will be deployed at some point. You are a big country and I do not know where he will be; nor should I. I am not sure how I feel about this; anxious is the best adjective to describe it. However, he is pleased to be considered important to the our mission there and is eager to do his part.

It is no less than I expect of my son, and we are proud of his willingness to do his job.

But, let me be very clear about it- You are to return him in exactly the same condition that we sent him.

With regard to my son, you are to be grateful for American willingness to do what your own government and countrymen will not do for you. You are to keep him safe.

You are to remember that your own people are being damaged by the eternal conflict that you heap upon your own heads. If you do not want foreigners in your country, learn to be a positive part of the world society, and stop aiding terrorists. We will be happy to have our sons and daughters home with us again.

It's not like any of them are there on vacation or tourism. Still, while he is there...

...I hope he can find moments of beauty in your complicated, stony, arid country. I hope he can look with compassion upon your people. I hope that he can learn further lessons in being a Real Human Being through his time spent with you. I hope he will discover what most wise people know, that very rarely if ever, are the people like their governments. I hope he will see that we are all just trying to get through our given day as effectively as possible.

I hope he will be given ample example of how truly blessed we are as Americans and feel compassion toward those who struggle in ways we cannot imagine. I hope he will have opportunity to learn and strengthen his character.

But, you must remember that he is My son. And, you will do as I say. You will return him to us when his time with you is finished. You will not see him harmed. I am lending him to you only. You must return him to us better for having been there with you.

After all, I know where you are. And, I am not afraid of you. Be warned.

Dear God:
Today, protect all of the warriors on the field.
But, if I might ask, please let the world know that You-
Are a solid Steelers fan.
