I Will Tell My Story #5 Getting Closer to God

Poet John Keats died on this day 200 years ago in 1821.

He wrote: “Intelligences are atoms of perception — they know and they see and they are pure, in short they are God.”

In this sad and mad modern world, I find God in rationality, in discourse, in short, in Logos. In throwing up ideas with friends:

I feel closer to God whenever I can share discussion of God with people who care.

Thank you, Graeme, and thank you, Amanda.

GOVERNMENT LOCKDOWNS and BALANCE and FREEDOM

A times I believe that all people and governments would be better off if they studied Exodus 7-11 more closely and stopped trying to fight the Coronavirus, accepted that the planet is over populated and that herd immunity is the way to go.

Of course this is a radical position and I do not always strongly adhere to it myself. Let alone want to force it on anyone else. I have lots of doubts about these occasional beliefs of mine.

There is a name for having some beliefs which are subject to change.

It is called intellectual freedom.

It means not wanting to force almost any human belief of mine onto other people and not wanting other people in this unknown territory of the Coronavirus Era forcing most of their beliefs on me.

What should we do next?

Does anyone really know?

In this state of uncertainty, why are we letting so many freedoms die?

God knows best.

And I am not God.
