it is simply complicated

the moon, a pale scimitar, over the swollen waters of the river. 

i think of how one can be in love with god.

and why it is so bizarre and incomprehensible in the eyes of others to be in love with god.

is it because ppl think one can love only what one can see, and touch, and smell, and hear?

because if it is so, there would be no inspiration, no moments of enlightenment, no longing. if it is so, then people would not be able to love life, to value relationships, and to keep those deceased in loving memory. if it is so, we are not human, we are goldfish with exceptionally long memory-spans.

and yes, i refuse to describe my experience, my walk with god in other words than those of a relationship, of love.

for i see him as the origin of all i see, and smell, and hear, and touch. i feel him as the origin of all i can feel. i value him as the origin of all value in everything.

i am in love, in a relationship (did you hear, facebook fans?), i am in a relationship with a perfectly real, and totally invisible, god.

it is complicated.
