[Preface: Contemplating . . . the thought of God.]
God is the invitation to respond with good will and compassionate heart to whatever presents itself in our lives for continuing movement through and through, cultivating love which burns up whatever need not exist in the first place which is ever-present origination continually manifesting Itself.
Jesus' [act was] to die to everything else, sacrificing everything in the name of love.
Like Buddhist monks immolating themselves in the 60's -- not suicides -- but acts of love calling attention to the need to move from sin and evil to wholeness and love.
Turn, and God is "right there." (This is not personifying God.)
God is "right here, right there." This means, presence without exception, no exceptions, no exclusions, no exemptions.
It is a recalculation of life, a re-contemplation of bare empty effortless action.
Understanding is not predicated on explanation. It is the result of listening.
No explanation suffices. No rationalizing , no excuses -- ever suffices.
What suffices is suffusion -- welling up to surface, pouring into appearance the depth profundity finds at origin.
