In A New Light [REVISED]

Taking a life to appease an angry deity’s wrath
makes me feel terribly depressed - when death
is seen as godly punishment life loses meaning,
life rejoices in unconditional love which needs
no atonement to please offended deities who
are represented by a caste of dour priest

I believe in superconsciousness as intelligent
and loving electro-magnetic energy manifest
in all life-forms, and every mind with unique
interpretation colours the information as each
presents the universe in a new light - and life
exists in the joy of creating new things

By investing belief in a creed we can bring
it about as we embrace unconditional love;
trust has to be earned - but true love sets no
such constraints respecting the variety and
beauty in every life-form, real love has
no place for threats of eternal revenge

When we make our goal joyful being instead
of cold non-existence, offering unconditional
love as acceptance of everything - in awe and
delight - nobody having to suffer or hang on
a cross for this imagined godly judgment of
humanity’s seemingly sinful fallen nature

We shall live in a free universe where all can
choose how to live life within a framework of
respect and unconditional love...

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
