You want to imagine God,
and there you have already
lost your way.

God has never been divided into any one thing –
Everywhere you look
Every thought you have
Every yes
Every no
Every longing
Every despair
Every moment of complete satisfaction
Every moment of disillusionment
Every single place,
including those you least suspect
or are willing to entertain:
God is there.
God is here.

God is certainly all the beautiful things you imagine and see,
But God is also a worn out shoe
left in a lonely alley.
What great tenderness and love you would feel
if you truly see
that God is also
an old worn out shoe.
