Angle up or angel down
We don’t look side to side around
We say we’re left
Or that we are right
We don’t see a foot in in front or behind
We just look for endgame.
Let us not rush through as if it’s all
win or lose
If you want to win in the end, sorry, your greatest fear is true…
it IS all “pointless.” There are no winners. No losers.
We all go back to the same earth.
The endgame is an illusion.
Success is hollow
if you’ve gutted people to get it.
Success becomes an idol of itself.
Just as the idol created of “common sense”
is really just greed. Justified by fear.
When you make a God of Winning
All the beautiful things which nurture instead of strive
Creating a dog eat dog world of bullies
But eventually, when the nurturers are all devoured,
even the bullies have nothing left to feed on.
When only “winners” survive, a dead earth is the only endgame
We may say we worship the one true God. Or none at all.
But in truth we have created gods to worship
Gods of security, money, practicality, righteous anger, WINNING
These false gods control us with fear
close up our hearts
demand our attention,
and create appetite for war.
But the real God is not waving a flag.
God is not shaking pompoms at the wargames that humans find so fun.
God does not see you as a winner or loser.
God does not love you as part of a group or team or country.
God sees you
the same as every other person
a unique, valued, beloved child.
If a human parent can love a child in this way
How is God’s love not
a thousand times stronger?
If you don’t believe in God
God won’t be angry.
God does not throw you away
if you have the wrong tiny ideas in your tiny head
as the false gods say.
God just wants you to carry the truth
that love can overpower
the false gods
