Those of you who regularly visit this blog know the subject of most of my posts is spiritual or inspirational in nature. I deviate occasionally into creative writing or sharing an interesting bit of news, but the crux is spiritual. There is something interesting about this blog, however, you may not have noticed. Very rarely will you find the word “God”.
I know there are people out there that would find this offensive. There are probably those who find it at the least odd and in the extreme even atheistic. How is it possible to write about spirituality without mentioning God?
I don’t use the word “God” because I feel it ultimately causes confusion, even if it’s on a subconscious level. I leave God as the implication behind the words. If you believe and how you believe are left entirely and respectfully up to you.
Evoking the word “God” is inevitably emotionally provocative. People have strong ideas either for or against the subject and how they arrange their beliefs around it. It’s a very personal thing and probably the most highly-valued and protected opinion an individual holds.
But here’s the tricky part. Although people may share similar ideas about what or who God is, no two viewpoints will ever be identical. What I experience and how I perceive something will always be undeniably a bit different than anyone else. Perspective is always unique and in this I find a beauty so sacred I simply don’t want to disturb the stillness of your waters. I want to leave the God experience utterly untouched so your own experiencing is pure and unsullied.
Regardless of how you believe in God, which God you believe in, or if you subscribe to any God-belief at all, I want my readers to be able to find a little pebble of inspiration somewhere in my words that’s been left undisturbed just for them to find. Truth, as they say, is where you find. I hope you find a little bit here.
