Deism, and the case for god
Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Albert Einstein (among others) considered themselves Deists. At a minimum, a Deist believes in nature’s beauty and nature’s god. The natural laws of the Universe are the basis of that belief. God gave birth to the universe via the “big bang,” approximately 15 billion years ago.
Beyond that basic belief, I consider myself a Deist, and in addition to the above, I also believe in one god as the universal source and force of unconditional love. God is neither “a he” nor” a she”, but a combination of both, as well as a positive energy force.
God wants all of god’s children to be united, not divided into different organized religions. God embraces Abraham, Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, Krishna, Rumi, and all of us, as children of god.
Many organized religions do good deeds, for which they should be commended. However, by competing with one another, organized religions defeat the loving purpose of god – that being love, harmony, and unity between all members of god’s family.
On August 15, 2009, I woke up with a message from god, encouraging the Co-Creation of a New World Community of Love and Peace. From that moment forward, I have been listening loudly as to what are the next steps for co-creating a New World Community of Love and Peace. On this subject, I am listening to god, and to you, as to what are the next steps.
In the meantime, the goal is to have “Love and Peace” in the bottom of our hearts, on the top of our minds, and ‘on our lips’ as we greet one another. The idea is to replace “hatred and war”, with “love and peace”, and come to a ‘tipping point’, when “love and peace” shall become the ‘modus operandi’, replacing ‘hatred and war”.
On a separate subject, the natural transition from intelligent design to intelligent evolution is described by this biblical/scientific metaphor: “Witness the birds of the field. Originally, they neither sowed nor reaped, and yet your heavenly father fed them. Now, witness the birds of the field. They both sow and reap, and your heavenly mother earth feeds them”.
I have a personal relationship with god. Each morning I do my morning meditation in my “Field of Dreams” (literally a soccer field with a magnificent 180º view). There, I connect with nature’s beauty and nature’s god. The “red bird”(Vermillion Flycatcher) that joins me, reminds me, that “god is here and all is well”. I ask for god’s guidance and frequently I receive it.
This is how I begin my morning meditation:
“I begin this day alone with you dear god – dios primero – primero de dios”. By putting god first in my morning prayers, I know the rest of my day will unfold under god’s divine guidance. God’s love and my morning meditation prepare me for a day of love in abundance, peace in prosperity, harmony and unity, and above all and around all; love and peace “ amor y paz para todo el mundo”.
I know that love and peace begin with me. I know I can only be loving and peaceful if I release all cares and concerns, all doubts, worries, and fears; in a word, all stress, to you dear god. I know that god alone can perform miracles. I know that if I do my best, god will do the rest, as we did together on Mardi Gras 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 – those were truly 5 fat Tuesdays; as well as March 26, 2007, and June 18, 2010 – one of 7 miraculous dates for us.
I am grateful to be happy, healthy, and free. I am grateful to be alive, to see the mountain “besitos y benditos de dios”, and to serve as god’s new ambassador of love – god’s love everywhere for everyone. That’s our vision, and that is my mission, because what the world needs now is love sweet love; it’s the only thing that there is just too little of, what the world needs now is love sweet love, no not just for some, but for everyone including you and me, and suicide bombers before they blow up themselves and us with them.
So, thank you god for filling me up full – wonder-full; faith-full; tank-full; and grate-full for your unconditional love, your everlasting light, and for your abundant prosperity. You, dear god, are the love of my life; I love you with all my heart, all my soul, and all my strength. You are the one and only source of unconditional love. I love you dear god, with all of my heart, all of my soul, and all of my strength; and I love my wife Cici, and my neighbors as much as I love myself; and that’s a lot; and besides it is unconditional love.
So, soon I will rise and shine, because god’s light has come and the glory of the lord has risen upon my head, just as Isaiah said it would. Thank you god for anointing me your king with integrity; you dear god are the king of kings and the lord of lords. I serve at your pleasure, and it is a pleasure to serve you, AMEN. “Amen” is Hebrew for “that’s the way it is” (in Spanish it is “asi sea”). “Asi sea” in Isaiah #32 and Revelations; “sea asi”. “Dios es mi escudo”; god is my shield. Thank you god, for commanding your angels to protect me in all my ways; thank you god for my guardian angels. “Dios is mi apoyo y fuerza” – god is my strength and salvation. “Dios es mi ayuda” – god is my help, with god’s help, all things are possible – all things are doable. “Por eso, no hay duda con la ayuda de dios”.
“Nuestro dios que arte en heaven;” hallowed, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done right here on earth as it is in heaven, because, god also made Heaven on Earth. “Por eso,” give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as well as those who trespass against us; lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom of god, the power of god, and the glory of god forever and forever. Amen.
