Where Is God



Mothers are the proof that God is not aloof.
Fathers evidence that God's in residence.
Do we realize Creation in our lives?
We interconnect beyond halo-effect.
We are made from "that" before which all was "flat."
We are manifest of miracles at best.
There's no need to roam since we are ever home.
Feel our existence in treks without distance.
An enlightened mind its source is sure to find.
Know our inclusion: distance is illusion.
A competent sleuth does not alter the truth.
Can we find relief from ill-conceived belief?
When brought to our knees do we seek to appease?
Why do we applaud? Prayer changes us, not God.
Who needs forgiveness other than each of us?
We can not atone until "oneness" is known.
The spiritual trip is in relationship.
Where should our God be in our biography?
