What Ever Gets You Through the Night

Preach to me baby how you see God everywhere
and yet it's all too obvious, you don't see Him here?
I must be a radical, is my skin not right?
Why is it you preach to me if God is in your sight?
Personally I care not [a wit?] for your beliefs
just leave me mine and don't pass along 
your judgments and your grief.

I see God in everything in you in me in trees.
I'd never think to tell you, you have the wrong beliefs.
By claiming, you are righteous and you have found the way;
you are being prideful, I wonder what God will say?

I talk to God's entirety, the She, the He, the WE …
they say that each of us, should let the other be. 
Enjoy your revelations, shine in the Light
open your mind to diversity; it's a celestial delight!

For every time you claim you're right
you make another wrong ...
Please for the love of God  
sing another song.

    I am a God fearing, Jesus loving, Bible thumping satan stomping Episcopalian and rejoice with you in finding peace and Joy in so many things. It is not my place to determine right or wrong in such matters.... My love for your transcends anything that would separate us as spiritual children...... We are all precious in the eyes of almighty God...... Love Ya dearly..... Jake

    Love this Deb! The last verse is a knock-out and I agree with your philosophy 100 percent here - Tim

    The phrase 'live and let live' springs to mind Debbie - really enjoyed this thought provoking verse:-) Hugs Jan xx
