For what is higher than God,
And what could be greater intent.

We fall off
When we lose sight of the Goal,
Or forget,
That in life there is a goal.

Getting sidetracked by ourselves,
We lose ourselves,
We lose what we know,
And our worth is degraded.

We do have worth,
But that is beside what it takes.
We need to take aim at God
To hit life's mark.

If God is not thy goal
Then thou hast forgotten truth
And begat sin,
Taking up the greatest lie,
That God is thyself.

To be one with God is the highest goal.

To be God is delusion.

Which God is it then? Only yours? I pay homage to several deities in my own way, primarily I am a Discordian, I love me some Eris. But that "God" dude from the Bibles is a bad bad man. At least I think. Could be wrong though, I usually don't pretend to actually know what I'm talking about. Nor do I feign knowledge of unknowable things. Am I rambling now? I do love Eris though, she shows me the chaos that is and could be but only if a refrain from hot dog buns like a good Discordian. Is there such a thing as a good Discordian? Is there such a thing as a good Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Jew? I don't know maybe some, like when you go into 7-11 at 3 am and all the slurpees are runny except for diet mountain dew? What's up with that?

I do agree with the underlying sentiment you expressed in your finely crafted poetic stylings, however. People aren't God, that's for sure.

You are ascribing to God what are limiting ideas. God is infinite as love is.

There is something that you should take in from the bible, whether or not your opinion of it is good, it is that our souls reach out for 'something'. That something does not seem to be foreign, but you feel it its not graspable by sense.

That is God: the Father of all souls. To the Father none can compare, for all that wishes to compare with it is what was initially created by it, but creation was soon perverted.

Those two idea forms contradict one another (the highest goal achieved then becomes a subsequent delusion) so there is a no 'win' scenario SET UP here. To be "one with God" implies a union or sameness. Question; how are you expressing yourself? You realize you have no 'free' or 'self will' what you may think belongs to you is actually GODS WILL (you as its ambassador only).

I am a cheap version for your love,
Reclining in your hair, I am the Universe.
You make me weep, you show me
Your motivation is swept away from me; you my love,
Am I nothing but a vampire for your love?
It is a beautiful day little runaway
Running from a dream working on a mystery.

Good poem, it seems to admit confusion while hiding it.

Some sayings are empty
Without wanting to be filled;
Wont to discontent,
Knowing their content falls
Into an abyss.

Empty barrels are the ones most resonant that reverb hollow, as they are the ones that ring true the most false discontent.
NO Problem with personal confusion; as ITS AN ALL IN (out there exposed/expressed, by YOU); in a poetic form, becomes an abbreviated form of a RAW [short hand] great beauty of expression. I like this thread of yours. Its a 'THINK' thread.

Takes Aim…






Do you remember when we fell under
Did you expect me to reason with thunder
I still remember when time was frozen
What seemed forever was just a moment

Hurry up, hurry up
There's no more waiting
We're still worth saving

Feel the light
Shining in the dark of night
Remember what we forgot
I know it's a long shot
But we're bringing it all back
We're bringing it all back

I Sill Remember when things were Broken
But put together, the cracks will close in

Hurry up, hurry up
There's no more waiting
We're still worth saving

Feel the light
Shining in the dark of night
Remember what we forgot
I know it's a long shot
But we're bringing it all back
We're bringing it all back

Fell under no reason a time frozen forever moment still true.


JC: Hurry up, hurry up

Huffing and puffing IM BREATHING THE IN AND OUT BREATH allowed; be alive (still worth saving).


JC: the light
Shining in the dark of night
Remember what we forgot
I know it's a long shot
But we're bringing it all back
We're bringing it all back

LIGHT (a broadside angled point of fact).


JC: I Still Remember when things were Broken
But put together, the cracks will close in

Hurry up, hurry up
There's no more waiting
We're still worth saving

Feel the light
Shining in the dark of night
Remember what we forgot

I remember; not that long ago, we are bringing it all back into this form consciousness
Long shot yes, but worth the trial [failure/success] (WE MADE THE ATTEMPT). I do have a secret now unhidden
WE SUCCEEDED.

That's right; a sense of humor serves one well while navigating this world/reality.
