Higher Power
Universal Being
Holy Father/Mother

Words cannot define
A Transcendent Spiritual Being that
Man can not hope to comprehend

So why do so many try so hard
To convince others
Of the essence of one so Great?

How arrogant would I be to believe
I know so much about God that
I can force my conception of Him

On those who, like me,
See through a glass darkly
Not seeing Him face to face

My earthly myopia should be an asset
Not an excuse to bludgeon others
With a hammer of rectitude

One God
Good thoughtful poem. I for one have learned that my faith in God is my own. I cannot give God form because I don't have the senses to see if there is a form. 'He' didn't put that in, as you say I have the tools I need to be here. I don't know the administration of heaven any more than I know the complexities of my own town,country, and world.
I don't need to prove God any more than I need to proof that I have a mind. Yet I seek knowledge in every experience as a way of living. (Cogito - as Descartes offered.) I know what's good and I know what's evil. No clever turn of phrase, rationalization, or justification will change my mind. I will try to do what's right even if I miss the mark - and I will miss often. But for me here is the thing - I won't argue my faith or try to convince another but do my best just to live it. Thanks for the reminder.
Bless you!
