  1. serious subject …. i like to think — if nothing else — that God might be the collective well-meaning of mankind. his/her disposition dependent souly on our own?

    • Eileen,

      G_D No Doubt is the Collective Well Meaning of Mankind.
      A Dear Friend of Mine Was Preaching Some Weeks back, and His Challenge was Issued.
      The Subject Matter(and Subsequent Piece) came in the form of Question and Answer from My Eyes Now.

      My Wife and I are in a Bit of a Weird Place, Two Years of Studying Judaism(Leaning towards Karaism) We’re Still Playing Music in a Baptist tending Church(Square Head Round Hole Anyone?).
      I’m Just Seeing Things Differently at both Age-48, and from the My Flavour/Viewpoint of Judaism Itself.
      I Started in this Life as a Catholic, turned agnostic in early 20’s, Bounced around several flavours of Christianity before Judaism Started to call Us in Our 40’s.
      My Wife Jen has Jewish Blood going back 200+ Years back, there are strong suggestion of Jewish Blood on My Father’s Side.
      Sorry for Bending Your Eyes, just got into One of those Babbling Modes.

      Thanks for both the Read, and Your Feedback!

  2. I like the way you structured this one. It kind of reminded me of a debate style format, with the “proposition” being: “Search of Living Proof of a Higher Powers Workings in My World” reveals evidence of such found in…

    and then your listing of very well described and perceptive observations.

    I think every example you listed could definitely be seen as “proof”, and please forgive me for reading into the comments, but I noticed you mentioned being agnostic at one point…do you think that humans “see what they want to see” when it comes to “evidence” of this nature? (i.e. ascribe these things as credit to God because that is what they are looking for?)

    Or…do they, in actuality, create the reality of the Divine by seeing these things as evidence of it? 🙂 Just curious about your thoughts about it. And please feel free to tell me to bugger off if the topic is too personal for you, I won’t take offense, I promise.

    • Dragenkatet,
      Thanks for Both Taking The Time to Read Through and Reply.
      Hardly Anything is Too Personal for Me, I Have a Way Easier Putting My Thoughts and Feelings into Pieces Nowadays….Irrational Fears of All Sorts Finally Put to the Side.
      Excellent Questions Put Forth.
      I’ve had Quite The Roundabout Faith Trip in My 48 Years.
      My Answer that is that I’ve Seen that People in Large Numbers See What They Want to See-Minds Made Up in Ways either due to Early Negative Learned Behaviors or Feeling some Irrational
      Fear that Created a Seemingly Massive Barrier that was to them Taboo and therefore never really further Approached out of some sort of Irrational Fear.
      Emphasis on The Wrong Things, and the Minimalization of Important Items…..The Nature of Humans in a Nutshell.
      I Guess The Big Answer is G_D is Found By Many in Many Different Forms and Ways, We’re Limited by only how far We Seek to both Reach and Find.

      Sorry for the Late Reply, between Starting a Larger Story, a Weekly Writer’s Group, Collecting Bits, Parts, and Mindspew for New Pieces, Edits, Submissions and Such I’m Losing Track of Time.
      Thanks Again…..LenG
