God? What The hell is that?
“When I was a child, I played as a child and spoke as a child. Now that I am a man I have put away childish things.”
Believing in a god as an adult is not a childish act. If you ask me – it is merely an outcome of socialization. It is both a hope and a fear driven act.
The hope is to hold an idea of a much larger picture than what we believe about ourselves, purpose, meaning, and about reality.
The fear is to face the unknown without an omnipotent superhero to back us.
The childishness is pulling apart this toy named “God” in a tugging war with another inquiring mind.
As if either of us know anything.
We are all navigating the unknown…and, by our own devices.
The real mystery here, is happiness.
Is it not?
