This is my conversation with God:
Are you there Infinite Intelligence? It's me comicprincess. Do you have a few minutes? Oh yeah, silly me, I forgot...you have an eternity. Mind if I call you God so there's less typing for me? Right...a rose by any other name smells as sweet.
Well now that we have that cleared up, I have some questions for you since you are the Source after all. Here's the thing: we all know the Beatles sang, "All you need is love"; and, I saw this really cool bumper sticker that reads "Life is the school. Love is the lesson"; and, then, of course, there's the Golden Rule: "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" aka "Love your neighbor as yourself". I want to understand all this in more practical terms. I have some interview questions for Your Great Magnificence and I'll just post them Q&A Style as we go.
CP: How can we learn to love ourselves, love our neighbors, heal ourselves, and heal our planet? I already work 40 hours a week. I don't know if I have time for all this.
G: "Day by day...Day by Day"
CP: I heard that song on the oldies radio station. So we're learning, loving, and healing each day. How is this possible?
G: "Love lifts us up where we belong, where the eagles cry on a mountain high."
CP: So Joe Cocker tuned in and tells us love is lifting us up. That's great, but it doesn't answer my question. How do we know HOW to do this loving our neighbors as ourselves thing? How do we get from Point A to Point B?
G: "Sign, sign, everywhere a sign"
CP: Hey the Five Man Electrical Band sang that-another oldie but goodie. So if we pay attention you give us signs and point the way? That's oh so very cool! This raises another question. What if we miss the signs and fail? I've driven past more than my share of exit signs. I've also gone the wrong way and gotten totally lost!
G: "I'll be there to always see you through. I'll be there to love and comfort you."
CP: The Four Tops sang that. Boy you sure love oldies! How will we know you're there?
G: "It's time we stop, children, what's that sound? Everybody look what's goin' down."
CP: It sounds like Buffalo Springfield knows how to "stop, look, and listen" just like when we cross the street. So if we get quiet and listen we'll get it. Is there anything else?
G: "Whenever you call me, I'll be there"
CP: So the Spinners knew that asking for help through prayer is a good thing too. Nice! Before my last question here's my recap: we are learning, loving, and healing daily. Love lifts us and energizes us. You're always pointing the way. There's no such thing as failure because you're always sending love and wisdom through synchronicity. All we need to do is take time to "stop, look, and listen" not only in our quiet times, but throughout the day through words spoken, written, or sung; gestures of kindness and otherwise; and, the ugly and beautiful images in nature, art, and photography. I'm beginning to understand. Any more song lyrics of wisdom?
G: "Take the time to get to know me. If you want me why can't you just show me?"
CP: Oh so very cool! You like modern rock too! Sweet!! I love Cake! They're an awesome band! So it's important to give too. As we give we receive and vice versa. The perfect circle continues. As we love our neighbor we love ourselves. Thanks very much for your time God. Speaking of time, I've gotta run. You know -dishes to do, reports to write, and so on. You know - daily living in this life, the Universe, and everything. Don't worry though. The radio is on and I'm listening.
