GOD

 

God is not in the howl of man, only in the howl of the wind.

    In the heart men and in the howl of wind.

    Beautiful quote, lawless.

      Thanx D.

      There are a lot of windbags out there that drone on and on about their beliefs. We all need to shut our mouths and listen to nature’s voice, including what is in our hearts.

      Oooooooh - so so true - there is much to learn from this one liner my friend.

      • Johnny Lawless

        You’re always so kind Fay.

        There are many things to learn from nature, may we never stop. I hope the future generations will realize that.

        Tis spiritual this, as I mean: No one has seen God Himself in person. He is seen as a man, fully human, and fully divine, in Jesus His Son.
        Though it's said 'God is a spirit'. It seems we can be 'in flow' with Him, as with the wind.The problems seem to come when we try to fight against the wind, as in natural gusts and gales!
        End of mini-sermon! lol.

          Is God a he or a she? Perhaps both. If Jesus is the son of God and part of the holy trinity, who is the daughter? I will be studying Taoism next. Your guinea pigs told me to!

            I suppose God is called 'He' - maybe the Jewish thing of women not counting for much. But 'He' includes female attributes too, we could say. Some refer to God as 'She'. Or likely, God is both, though we say 'Our Father', etc. Meanwhile - Ahh, Confucius, he say: 'Confucius leave me all confused!' lol.

                Well hey there man, been a while. You come back and drop a truth bomb on us like it's nothing.
                Been doing some thinking? Hope you've been well.

                  I’ve been bicycling just about every day with my son Nick; poetry has become less significant. I’m spending time trying not to think too much.

                  I don’t know what the truth entails, but I’m having fun trying to search for it. Thanks for waiting around for me.

                  • Nicholas Browning

                    Glad to hear it, Johnny. You do whatever makes you comfortable, man. I'm sure every person here would agree.

                      Hello bud,

                      Yes, death will be the howl that matters. God or not.

                      Good on ya,
                      J.L.

                      Johnny,

                      Reading your post, reminded me of an op-ed that I read recently...

                      ...the partisan wolves will continue to howl; jaded listeners will tune in to hear the deceitful braying and agree with charlatans who could care less about truth and fairness...

                      ~Laura~

                      • Johnny Lawless

                        Howling of wolves...perfect. Much better than the rant of Allen Ginsberg.

                        Perfect

                          Thank you, but there is always room for improvement.

                          • sylviasearcher

                            I just knew that! Lol
