“God is the creator, not the manager.”--Sadhguru.
Father, brother, patriarch or king,
we will bend a knee and kiss the ring.
We stare at a sky full of a trillion stars,
gazing from the moon to Mars.
We hope and earnestly pray,
AllThatIs is more than just words to say.
We need it to be much more,
as we whine, sputter and roar.
We need a viable Creator, a God,
at the vertex, so that we can cod
-ify Creation, and make some sense
out of our lives, can recompense
for our dark side, and for the evil
we covet, hoping for a retrieval
of our higher self, reaching for forgiveness,
aspiring to be almost fearless
during calamity and illness,
able to find Christ in Christmas.
No man survives all alone,
just so much muscle and bone.
No, we need something or someone
to count on when all is said and done.
There is actually more than one path
to find You, and avoid your wrath.
Certainly You have more than one name,
and often we ask You to take all the blame
for the chaos and tragedy we suffer,
even though You made our spirit tougher,
and gave us courage to stay the course,
dispensing love and not using force.
Somehow we know that we are not the center
of the universe, and that You are our mentor.
It must be sad to believe in nothing,
with no friend to help us grieve.
