I wonder why - if one considers, for the sake of argument, gods to be projections of the human mind - some need extremely powerful gods, and some less so?
I've heard that wonder is the most advanced state of consciousness that a person can achieve. I wonder why we don't wonder more when wondering is such a wonderful thing...
We create what we need, and need what we don't have,
so our obsessions and values reflect our own starvations.
The weak create a strong God,
The troubled create a supportive one.
The loving create a gentle God (don't need much),
the out-of-control create a controlling God,
and the confused create a smart one.
To lead the way and fill in the holes.
When life is simple and I realize I don't actually need anything,
then suddenly everything is open to me
and I am in heaven.
