Ha, now this is a very good description!!! Ha!

"Just as oil is within the sesame seed,
And fire is within the flint,
So does your Beloved dwell within you.
Be awakened if you wish."

Kabir

I have no scientific evidence for anything I say.
Better to PM me if you want me to see a post to me. I miss a lot.

Hallo!

About the rhyming:

It is many times hard to translate exactly from language to language.

So, you have to take artistic liberty.

God:

A word - John 1:1

An endless conversation - Revelation 8:1

An obsession

A war

A contradiction

A truth

A lie

An absence

A presence

A silence

A voice

My personal favorite: god is an amoeba

When considering the simple three letter word, the best way to understand is through condensation. When something is condensed, it has greater quality or proportion. Think of condensed milk or orange juice concentrate. Now examine the word good and consider this phrase,

God is good.

You'll think of god personified. Remove the personification and see the words as objects.

Condense the word good to its absolute (the two o's merge into one). Now the word good becomes the word god.

Therefore, the definition of the word god is: that which is MOST GOOD.

The word god is an absolute rendering of the word good (this is nothing more than mathematic linguistics).

Removing the personification can be very useful but just remember to put it back when you're done lol

I 'see' god/God as walking around as mentioned in Genesis 3:8

"“And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife
hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.”

We hear stories about jesus/buddha walking on water, changing water to wine, levitating etc but none of that is as impressive as the fact that you there, sitting right there, even exists.

As a child, I learned how to walk on water...... I waited till it froze over.

Full of Light, Love, Peace, Joy and Power:

1. Full of Light, as He is All-Light surrounded by Light unimaginable and incomprehensible, and that Light engulfs and gives a feeling of Absolute Peace...

2. Full of Peace, as He moves and speaks peacefully, and peace issues from Him as He makes a gesture of Love...

3. Full of Love, as His Living gesture signals you to come close to Him and rest in His Infinite Love and as you rest in His embrace, you melt into His Infinite Beingness and perceive His unending Power...

4. Full of Power, as We swim through His Unending Power and find within Him all things contained that ever was, is and will be, and How by His Power He made, sustains and shall dissolve all things, and knowing that it is possible to rest in this All in all brings great Joy...

5. Full of Joy; Bliss... Splendid!!!

At the end of the day... He is indescribable... Beautiful!!!
