God and I
I don't think of God. I guess I must have when I was a kid, but I don't remember.
A couple months back, I had my first conversation with God. A very brief one. I started by telling God about what I wanted. I don't remember what God said.
A couple months later, I find myself thinking about God a second time. What I write is for you.
I'm a part of God.
Everyone is a part of God. All people.
Thoughts are a part of God. All thoughts.
Beliefs are a part of God. All beliefs.
Animals are a part of God. All creatures.
Everything living is a part of God. Everywhere.
Actions are a part of God. By anything.
Energy are a part of God. All energy.
Countries are a part of God. Everywhere on Earth.
Planets are a part of God. As is the star they orbit.
The galaxy is a part of God. All of them.
Everywhere is a part of God. Across every universe.
Everything is a part of God. Physical or not.
God consists entirely of everything, everywhere.
Everything everywhere consists entirely of God.
I wonder if I'll think of God again.

Dearest Peter whom I only know from your website and your postings, the following quote may be of interest to you, no matter if the medical or your personal view of your future will prevail:
"You ask an explanation of what happens to us after we leave this world: This is a question which none of the Prophets have ever answered in detail, for the very simple reason that you cannot convey to a person's mind something entirely different from everything they have ever experienced. Abdu'l-Baha gave the wonderful example of the relation of this life to the next life being like the child in the womb; it develops eyes, ears, hands, feet, a tongue, and yet it has nothing to see or hear, it cannot walk or grasp things or speak; all these faculties it is developing for this world. If you tried to explain to an embryo what this world is like it could never understand - but it understands when it is born, and its faculties can be used. So we cannot picture our state in the next world. All we know is that our consciousness, our personality, endures in some new state, and that that world is as much better than this one as this one is better than the dark womb of our mother was..." (from the Bahá'í Writings)
No fear! Love,

Beautiful Brother Dodger,
I think of you often and I miss you madly.
I want to see you again, to hang out, talk about living.
Just todat I remembered our days in Boulder. Mmmmmm. Take & Bake Pizza and Miami Vice. Or was it turkey franks, baked beans and mac & cheese. Or ALL of the above.
I am a huge fan of you.

Very happy to read your latest posting - very happy to hear you're still on this earth, went to see/listen to Thich Naht Hahn last night - the hundreds of us there sat in a healing silence, holding the names of those we wanted to enfold in our minds and hearts - I said your name to myself over and over- it was the name that came to me to hold. Many hugs and love - mahimo (English nurse from the ranch....married to Sharno - Michael, that wierd wired digital dude)

illusiory you-ness from illusory me-ness
praise to that which dissolves all separation
that white cat which jumps on time's mechanical mouse
