Watercolor by Consilia Karli…Alien
ARE YOU THERE, GOD???
Is Rogue God there when you need a God there?
Or are as we as alone and alien as we sometimes feel?
Would a rogue god be off in his own separateness sometimes
…like a mother wanting to get away from her children in all their neediness?
Does Rogue God, like parents, have to leave us on our own
…so we don’t become dependent on constant contact?
…so we develop confidence in our own strength and ability?
…so we learn how to depend on and relate to each other?
…so we learn how to be “separate yet one-with” as God seems to be?
On the Edge of NOT knowing
I always thought of God as knowing everything, yet what, if instead, God is always on the edge of knowing?
What if God rides knowing on a wave, like we do? What if God surfs the wave of knowing by responding to the moment with the whole of God’s being as a champion surfer would?
The idea of a God which knows everything seems a fairy tale, a wish for something that seems like good lasting forever, but also something that ends the story.
An interactive God would be always there with us on each new wave of Unknowing, instead of being out there somewhere knowing it all, like some people do, like I do sometimes.
What if God were there with each moment, coming to know and be known by everything IN that moment, knowing as one does in the throes of becoming one with the other, in the crest and crash of the great wave, in the ebb and flow of the small everyday waves?
What if God is always on the edge of knowing like we are? Or what if we are always on the edge of knowing like God is?
