When God Toches Me

When God Touches me

Those beliefs are not for me
Because they have no proof
They are brainwashed into folk
Who are made to think them truth
As each child does come along
They’re told that they must be
Just like others in the throng 
As they lose all mystery

It’s a great way for control
Having power over others
This is what some like to do
As they pretend that all are brothers
And when they want to start a war
It’s easy to use religion
Belief is the best thing in the world
For building up divisions

Now me I sit with mother nature
Let her silence be heard
I feel the breath of the morning sun 
Let the stillness within be  stirred
For then I’ll feel the breath of God
As he takes me deep within 
Cause God is there waiting for me
Beneath my foolish din

The entire missive sums it up as one is one is one is won is won is won is one. I always like chanting that song "We are one with each other, we are won, we are one, we are one, we are one, we are one." This includes the air, trees, flowers, ducks, ponds, mountains. Beautiful!

You have got it Caren. Everything is one. As Alan Wats once said 'YOU ARE IT' If one takes a good look within they will find out that there is nothing but me. Me being consciousness, And consciousness being everything. everything else is just a story that we play, that finishes and another story starts. maybe I'm wrong, but that is how I feel and always have. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....Peter

Thank you so much Supraja. I am so glad that you got what I was writing about. Yes the eternal truth is the most beautiful truth ever, and cannot be brainwashed into anyone. I appreciate your kind comments, my friend....Peter

Hi Sidney, I really don't like some priests very much and often go to church because I feel I need communion. I agree with you, if you find God in the mountains or the sea or open spaces in the dawn or the evening, how wonderful. Lovely poem Sidney Poetry hugs, Jennifer.

This seems contradictory.On the one hand you are saying all religion is bad yet you still think God exists.Its the eternal dilemma.

I think that when I think of a God. I think of God is part of me and I am part of God. Please don't get mixed up with the organized God That definitely does not exists, They are wrote about by common people, not a God. Nature and I are the same thing, we can call it consciousness. awareness. God, and many other names. This is how I see it. I am God and God is me. I don't believe in foolish superstitions that cause all the wars and fighting. God only comes when you go within and find the real presence....Peter
