6. REVIEWING THE DIVINE

God is in the essence of the air we breathe
in every thought or notion we conceive;
within around above us and beneath.

Divinity dwells in every atom of Creation
leaves it, us, free to form our own solution
constrained by love in every situation
yet biasing our every selfish notion.

God has no material form or feature
is not a man or any other creature
is everywhere but not a part of nature.

God's nature is eternal goodness
expressed as love in all its fulness
love constraining divine greatness

Religions form biassed views of divinity
as sacramental gloss undermines reality
giving false importance to humanity

Human structures form as shields in which we trust
Yet, on the carpet of eternal time, we are but dust
self-centred but playing such a minor role
in making God's Kingdom really whole.
