God, Me and My Bladder

There is no point arguing about God, because God is everything, or God created everything, and we are just the tiniest part of everything.

090903Bali_dsc3122ScompsFor us to argue about God is like a couple of cells in our bladder trying to influence our spiritual agenda. To the extent that all living things are manifestations of God, they and I have a common spiritual base. However, these cells have their own existential imperative, which is probably about living and dying in the bladder. I do not go to them for advice about how to operate my computer.

Life probably does have a common core of being, but that doesn’t mean everyone/thing is the same, nor does it mean that the ethical imperative of a cell is the same as mine, nor that mine is the same as God’s.
