God Is Not Separate
What does hatred, greed, sadness bring?
Who is underneath?
God is one,
God is nothing,
God is something.
God is within.
God is the cars passing by in the night.
God is the rain on the porch and sound that rustles on the leaves.
The wind that shakes the car when I drive too fast.
We sit in front of the television and get lost in it everyday.
We fail to see beauty when we are lost.
Removing the hatred and bad thoughts and you will find peace.
By invading the land
By pushing views and different values on others
What comes of it?
Where is the freedom when we push?
Who is the receiver, who is vulnerable?
Where can peace be if we instill our beliefs in others?
Who is to blame?
Are we all innocent?
Take a grain of sand and look at it..
What do you see?
A grain of sand?
One grain of sand?
Who looks beyond the grain of sand and only sees what has always been?
No more pushing, no more shoving people to the side.
You have to embrace everything, the good, and the bad.
Because behind the bad, there is good.
And behind the good, there is bad.
It is in everything.
No one is innocent, only God is innocent.
You can call God someone in the sky,
You can call God, the one who failed you in despair.
But who do you always turn to when you are in despair?
Is it God? Is it you, the one within.
You look within and see nothing
You look within and feel nothing
You stop looking and you are nothing.
You are God.
You are water, earth, wind. You are everything and everywhere.
Do not take advantage of others.
Do not force others to believe in your beliefs.
Accept others as yourself.
In every moment of thought, thank God.
Show no hatred, only humility.
Accept your faults as the past and move on.
Refuse to believe in anything, only have faith in nothing, God.
Shame is sin, only because you think it is.
Love is the only way to peace.
Love the person who raises you, who belittles you, who empowers you.
Love everyone as they are you and part of the collective.
Do not invade, simply embrace where you are.
Embrace all moments and think of, who is thinking.
If someone discloses their beliefs to you, neither accept nor reject them.
You can have feelings of discord, but do not use those feelings to turn against someone.
We are all uneducated, we are deeply influenced by those around us who are uneducated.
They belief in this God, and that God, all the while there is only one God.
You were born to someone who believed in God, because their parents believed in God, and because their parents, parents, believed in God, and so on. They said, go to church, listen to preachers and rabbis, and priests, and other teachers. But when God was speaking, they were not listening. They were inclined to follow ancient texts and torahs and korans. Misleading information, or written well but poorly understood. Turned upside down.
Take away the reader and who is left?
Take away all the books and movies and all the living drama, and who is left?
Stop invading and start living.
You can visit but don’t stay.
Keep moving, but remember not to disapprove of their beliefs. Only see God.
