[The following is a hologram of my imagination of what I believe to be brought on by migraines, creativity, or madness. My conversation with God is not to be misconstrued as anything close to faith, for I rarely believe in what is not there or deny in what is.]
The creator is often seen as being male and infinite, and to avoid confusion in such a gendered language as English, I will refer to God as God. God’s resume is very long, but one of God’s many accomplishments was the formation of this universe among the countless others. I cannot begin to tell you how honored I am that God agreed to do the following interview. To be so flawed and accepted by one so great, when clearly God has so many better and more faithful choices, leaves me so humbled that I must inscribe myself as “unworthy one.”
unworthy one: What is the meaning and purpose of life?
God: To open your eyes and to close them with a smile
unworthy one: Why is there such hate in this world?
God: Because there is much pain in this world
unworthy one: Why then is there pain like this?
unworthy one: Do people have a chosen destiny?
unworthy: I want to write and write like hell but no one reads it. No one controls destiny?
unworthy one: Are we all misdirected?
God: “All” can be such a sin
unworthy one: what is the right faith?
God: That gives true hope
unworthy one: But many speak of the “Word of God” for example?
God: Not mine?
unworthy: Are men and women equal?
God: L-I-F-E is equal
unworthy: Why genocide, why World War II, why millions dead in Rwanda, why mass shootings, these crazy elections?
God: you become what you think
unworthy: why do people die?
God: Because people kill them
unworthy: They get disease and …
God: it’s a cycle … hate is not
unworthy: But why?
God: truth lies in those you trust … a week is 3 billion years … all in a time warp …
unworthy: Many will read this and say why did you speak with H-I-M and not those of faith?
God: because you spoke to me without a mask
unworthy: Any advice to the others?
God: mercy is always worthy …
unworthy: Many people need you …
God: So do I.
unworthy: where are you?
God: In seeing the world, in seeing life differently, in seeing a setback as an opportunity, a disability as a gift, and riches as a curse; to see life, to smell it, taste it, to embrace what lives and mourn what has not, to see that when love conquers evil it may become so; evil follows goodness so. Twins at birth. Sometimes God can be the Devil, you know. Evil is not Black or White; white is a color of life here and one of death over there. Black shows evil here and peace and new beginnings somewhere not yet here.
