Welcoming the Divine I

My definition of divine:
[...the creative intelligence of the universe...]

There are many theories that have concluded that, we are, at any one moment in time, clueless...,
I kinda love this state of affairs,
Otherwise its sooo hard to control-freak my universe, never mind anyone else’s who is close to me...

It used to be, that I’d waste precious hours of ‘life-time’ trying to figure out why I have indigestion,
Very futile, even though I have a Ph.D. in nutrition,
So, these days, I just gulp down a digestive enzyme or two, and hey-presto, problem solved...,
I like this, its what more and more I’m calling ‘welcoming-the-divine’ in my life...

It used to be, that I’d waste precious hours of ‘life-time’ trying to figure out why the indigenous drivers on the island I live on are the most infuriatingly unconscious bipeds on the planet, by far...,
Nowadays, I try to chill about it,
Much, much easier really, and the anger I spare myself turns instead into more hours of youth in my life...
I like this, its what more and more I’m calling ‘welcoming-the-divine’ in my life...

It used to be, that I’d waste precious hours of ‘life-time’ trying to figure out why all the world’s governments love to tyrannize us,
Nowadays, I say:-
‘Aaahhh, useless, an*l-retentive forms to fill-in again... Hello dear divine, I welcome you, not to be disrespectful though, but haven’t you had enough of filling-in forms yet? Lol, you have a wicked sense of humor, you know that? Sigh..., Oookaaayyy, lets fill-in one more form...’
I like this, its what more and more I’m calling ‘welcoming-the-divine’ in my life...

Hi, Earlgreytea,
American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr's "Serenity Prayer" comes to mind. Thank you for giving me a moment to ponder Welcoming the Divine I in this life that also is to be continued - and enjoyed as much as possible.

I like the way you have learned to look at life and continue your learning every day, it says a lot about a person when they continue to grow as a person all their lives.

Clueless...I've been many times EGT...sometimes it's because I'm really without a clue but most times I'm not bothered or not interested.

I really love your logic behind this stanza:

"It used to be, that I’d waste precious hours of ‘life-time’ trying to figure out why the indigenous drivers on the island I live on are the most infuriatingly unconscious bipeds on the planet, by far..., It used to be, that I’d waist precious hours of ‘life-time’ trying to figure out why the indigenous drivers on the island I live on are the most infuriatingly unconscious bipeds on the planet, by far..., Nowadays, I try to chill about it.

I hope you realise that you have to fill in the correct forms in triplicate (that is part a followed by part c then part 2a) before you post 'Welcoming the Divine II' ... now that you know please follow correct procedure

Dear Earl

You continue to spoil us with your delightful writes: As a matter of interest, I am rather pleased that in Cyprus you fill in forms, we fill in forms here in England too, but for some reason our American friends fill out forms... I some times permit myself a few moments to wonder why? However, maybe George Bernard Shaw wasn't too wide of the mark when he suggested that England and America are two countries divided by a common language...

Best wishes
