Shouldn’t we realize right about now that a Source which is capable of creating Everything has to be a bit more magnificent than what we’ve portrayed so far, and by definition is thus not nearly so humanly petty and punitive as we’ve made It out to be?
What if, instead, the Source created/provided the possibility for everything, solely for the Purpose of allowing each and all of us the freedom to use some, all, or none of Life’s opportunities—and without judgment or assessment of the choices we make?
What if Life just Answered?
Mankind owns a long and thoroughly reprehensible history which clearly demonstrates that following various Deities’ mandates has been little more than an excuse to commit atrocities and render ignorant, mean, narrow-minded judgments almost beyond our comprehension–ones that continue to this very day.

Following up on some admittedly snarky observations from my last post with commentary from my book Life Will Answer:
One of the many problems mankind demonstrates in attributing the origins of our universe and guidance in our everyday lives to a Supreme Being is that we’ve made It so petty that It has emotional needs which must be fulfilled (by us, its distinctly inferior creation—setting up its own collection of fulfillment problems); It has to be obeyed or else; It actually expresses preferences about who wins athletic competitions; cares deeply about your golf game; flips coins in deciding about healing illnesses; is bothered by who one’s bedmate might be; deems it best that rich white guys get tax breaks at our expense; helps one competitor over another with business presentations, or otherwise actively—and by all accounts quite arbitrarily—involves Itself in the myriad and mundane of our lives (while at the same moment presumably directing the formation of galaxies and governing the laws of quantum physics in Its spare time).

As I state in my book Life Will Answer, the observations I’m offering are nothing more than suggestions to consider the possibility that perhaps Life and God/Allah/Whatever might be more than what we’ve chosen so far. Then, decide if that makes sense and if this possibility can be used to your advantage from this moment on.
Following up on thoughts from last week’s post:
A POINTLESS DEBATE
Perhaps it’s time that we all recognize and simply accept that one conviction is in fact no more rational (or irrational) than another. With so many contradictory beliefs, either there is some other unifying and overarching principle, or we will continue to sabotage our individual and collective lives by fighting to assert we’re right and everyone else is wrong. We own that choice. [From my book Life Will Answer.]
