Reflections on the Water – Like Shadows in My Mind


Silent_WisdomIs it any wonder that references and allusions to “Light” are eternally made when the subject of God arises?  (pun intended).  For one thing, Light is a construct that is near and dear to our hearts as residents of Planet Earth as it is a physical and constant presence.  Indeed, it is an unavoidable attribute of our surrounding environment.  Consequently, we are very familiar with it.

What better Way then, to effectively impart understanding and comprehension about God, Who is empirically, an incomprehensible construct for us human beings to understand?

Let’s begin with a contemplation of Love.  It is a word that we humans created, yes?  It describes the unseen emotions of the heart toward other humans.  And because it was created by us humans, it is therefore, real, yes?

There is one essential element of the construct of Love, however, that goes largely unnoticed at first glance.  And that is, Love, by definition, is a reciprocal state or condition.  Love cannot exist unless it is shared with others.Love_3

Love is intended to be a Duality, a Relationship, a Conversation, an Exchange and a Dialogue.

As Darkness is the Absence of Light;

Cold, the Absence of Heat;

Death, the Absence of Life;

Hate, the Absence of Love.

As you can see, Darkness, Cold, Death and Hate ONLY exist when we do not choose to Shine, Live, Share Warmth and Love.  It originates with our thoughts, which by the way, emanate from our values.

“Bottom Line, we are responsible for all the Darkness, Cold, Death and Hate in the World, by our Actions, by our Emotions, by our Thoughts and by our Values.”

I have many times referenced the near-genius lyrics of John Denver songs and especially like one in particular to illustrate the simple choices in life, the relationship, patterns and interdependence of nature and human life.

Simply stated, where there is Love, there is God, because God Is Love.  Enjoy the genius of John Denver:
