God is not a micromanager.




Regardless of professed faith or denomination, some of us feel deep inside the existence of a higher being. That power is beyond description and it is not transferable from one person to another. The only way to recognize it is by unconditional submission which is probably the hardest task possible.
The knowledge of a connection separate from one that can be reached by careful reasoning alone is transcendental. This is where it separates itself from the daily human manipulation to serve someone's interests. There are no acts of subjective punishment, there are no individualized penalties showered upon who disagrees. These are effects of decisions made by the "free-will." There is no value to affection born out of imposition; God does not want us to love him/her because we fear punishment because that is not love at all. Love is given voluntarily and can not be forced or disguised which is why it is much more valuable than any gem. To God love is the gem, diamonds, emeralds and rubies are only colored stones that do not match the beauty of creation in any remote sense. God is the same for us Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, Muslims, Krishna’s, etc., we picture images, writings, words, messages that should be rightly examined but are apart from the biggest message which is the beauty of nature, our souls, spirits and each other.
