Dear God

Thank you for the blessings 
You have bestowed upon my loves ones and me
We have health, love for each other
And jobs that pay enough for the rent
And basic necessities

Forgive me for the times I’ve cursed you
In the midst of certain lessons
I was ignorant – not contemplating 
The greater good,
Then you granted me the gifts of 
Knowledge and understanding and
Made me grateful for nearly all the outcomes

“Life is the school” and “Love is the lesson,”
But what is the purpose of our incarnation?
Is it enjoying the simple pleasures,
Growing spiritually to know you better,
And striving to do the right things 
That make up the purpose potion?

These are things that aid us in loving 
Ourselves enough to adequately love you,
Jesus and our fellow spiritual beings
Who are sharing the earthly experience,
But is that all there is?

Beyond Love, you may not divulge 
Any other reasons for existence, as
All things ultimately fall under Love’s umbrella
Besides, when working in harmony, 
The Bible, our intellect and intuition
allow us higher Truths and Revelations
That I contend come from You and angels
But, is that all of what we are given?

Shall I simply be content in praying 
That you continue to enlighten my inquisitive soul
By feeding me information
On a need to know basis
using the tools you have provided 
as I enjoy the simple pleasures,
continue my spiritual growth
and strive for morality over blasphemy?

Do I trust that Life’s Purpose
Is as simple and as complex as
Live, Love, Die and Reincarnate?

Love is the Key. 
The rest, only You know the Truth.

If you could talk to God....

    Kimberly, if I were to give you any advice, as to the question, at the end of your poem. Without getting into any details about what you seem to believe. I would say you basically have the truth, that is Love. God is love, you are made from that same substance. Be the love that you are in the world, and the blessing of your life will continue, as you have mentioned. Be love, and your life will always fall into it's proper place. Sincerely, Love, Moses
