I am who I am

God said to Moses

God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.'”  Exodus 3:13-15

Committing to a definition of God

If your belief is selfish; no.
If your faith is from fear; get a pair, no.
As a wager on immortality; dishonest, no.
As creator of you in his image; you pompous ass, no.

Nothing sacred in a cup of tea or a falling leaf and no amount of promised enlightenment or mindful smugness will convince me otherwise.

Perhaps as some believe; creation is evidence of a passing thought, impersonal, beyond conception, beyond religion, we are that thought, a formless contradiction. A lapse of attention?

Now. Starting to make sense.
Love selflessly; seek knowledge; avoid the darkness of ignorance.
No need to know or do any more.

One day we may discover that the universe
is shaped like one infinite question-mark.
a curving, twisting design
with no designer or signer;
the ones who discover this cosmic art-puzzle
will then be filled with wonder
and wish to explore
to investigate further, farther, deeper, wider
until they are left with nothing but the search
beyond faith
beyond god
closer and closer to simple exquisite
naturally delightful Beauty and discover
it is inseparably
enough. . .
