I Saw G_d Crying…, an Allegory...

I had a very strange day the other day,
I was lying on the beach watching the world go by, when I saw a little child trip and fall whilst running and immediately burst into tears,
The parent rushed to its aid and began weeping as well as the child’s nose was all bloodied from the fall,
And I looked up and saw G_d crying too…

Later that day, I witnessed a couple arguing,
Suddenly the male got up and stormed off,
The female started sobbing softly as her body shook from anguish,
And I looked up and saw G_d crying too…

Later that day, I was visiting a friend in a large corporation’s offices when a man approached her desk, fighting back tears,
My friend asked what’s wrong, he had just been let go,
And I looked up and saw G_d crying too…

Later that day, I was having coffee with a friend when his mobile rang,
He answered, listened for a couple of seconds, then his face transformed into one of great sorrow and tears inundated his face,
He mumbled a thanks and closed the phone,
What’s wrong I asked alarmed,
His ailing mother who was on another continent had just passed away,
And I looked up and saw G_d crying too…

Later that day, as I was walking alone deep in thought, I noticed a stranger walking alongside me,
Hi, I said, do I know you?
Oh yes, the stranger replied, I am G_d,
Shocked, I gasped,
Wha, wha what are you doing here I asked,
I am here to answer your question,
My burning question was, of course, why did G_d cry at all the mishaps throughout the day instead of helping or better still putting an end to all the misery I had witnessed?
Simple, was G-d’s answer,
All those of my children who burst into tears today forgot who they are,
And that, was what made me cry…

Dear Earl

Your philosophies are as humanitarian as ever. Such are the iniquities we inflict on our planet and ourselves that cause the heavens themselves weep oceans.

Your dialogue with the almighty is certainly food for thought, we all forget who we are for much of the time.

Thanks for such a reflective Sunday morning read.

Kindest regards
