My Continued Search for God: A Hundred Objects

Getting tired of my "Search for God" poems yet? Just half a dozen more then I'll be done posting them. Will I have "Found God?" Doubtful:•)

 If you have read some of my previous work, you will know that while I consider myself a spiritual person, I do not consider myself a religious person and am not so sure I believe in a God. I have read, studied, discussed and continue my "search for God." The first breakthrough was when I realized  that there could be a "spiritual god", up until then only thinking in terms of a "religious god." But that is a different story. Meanwhile I would like to share a number of "Love Poems from God" edited by Daniel Ladinsky 2002.Only a few of the poems spoke to me and I continue to contemplate them and document them here for you as well as for my future study.

Mira (1498-1550) is the4 most renowned woman poet saint of INdia and her songs are sung by Hindus, Muslims, and Sikhs alike.

A Hundred Object Close By

I know a cure for sadness:
Let your hands touch something that
makes your eyes

I bet there are a hundred objects close by
that can do that.

Look at
beauty's gift to us--
her power is so great she enlivens
the earth, the sky, our soul.
