Egal Bohen


Another Truth (Don't read this if you don't believe in God)

If you believe in God
God must have made us all
Out of whatever God is
Unless God borrowed something small
From some other God, perhaps a friend of his
Or, he may have had a brother or a sister or two
Though this is unlikely and probably not true
Because it would mean, that he was in that case
Just one of two or three Gods out there in space
Raising the question of who was there first
Where did the others come from?
Perhaps near Chislelhurst?
And then one could ask, where did the others go?
But that's a very difficult question to answer, you know
Which means in the end you surely must perceive
If you believe in one God
He is in you and me

For whatever God is
You is a part

(Actually, ... I think, ....he lives in your heart)

    Dear Jemarie,

    I sincerely thank you for your kind comments and advice, and, being broadminded of course I have over many years, read most of the Bible

    In friendship I would reciprocate and invite you to read two other books written by God (Through his followers of course)
    1. The Upanishads (Equivalent of the New Testament to Indian Brahmin)
    2. 'An Experiment With Time' by J W Dunne.
    You will find these are both also very enlightening, being written from the same universal perspective.

    In the meantime I have no doubt that despite the existence of all three volumes the Universal God still 'probably' sends his blessings from Chislehurst to the followers of all planetary religions of man!

    In good faith and steadfast in the face of all adversity

    I invite you to read the Bible so all the questions and doubt shall find answers. You have a good heart and I believe you will find the Bible a very enlightening and inspiring literature. God bless you! (Report) Reply

    I like this very much and the ending especially. I like bang-up endings
    (reverse of big bangs?) Chislelhurst might well be the center of the universe
    although they say there is no center nowdays, and it may all expanding
    perhaps as far as Woolwich? And I think God lives happily inside of all
    your poems! (Report) Reply
