Seeking God

When will you be nearer to God than now?
When will you be closer to heaven than here?

God is not a person
Heaven is not a place
They are pointers
To now and here
Before time
Beyond space
Prior to thought

What exists in the gap between thoughts?
What is present in deep dreamless sleep?

This is not knowledge
For you to feel good about
These are pointers for you
To follow in your direct experience
Go there, Be that
Embracing the certainty
Of not knowing

“The Tao that can be named
Is not the eternal Tao”

~ Laozi, The Tao Te Ching

That is not just a quote
To feel great about
To pass along to others
And move along with life

Oh no! That is a pointer
To finding God
The One, without a second
