Spinoza response iii.

“D3: By substance I understand what is in itself and is conceived through itself, that is, that whose concept does not require the concept of another thing, from which it must be formed”

Ethics by Spinoza

God is apparent

without conception

of any other concept.

I believe if I was

raised outside

of society I would 

still see the complexity 

of the world around 

me and know 

that there is something 

greater.

Clouds

I looked out 

my car window

and saw a heavenly 

sight.  The puffs

of white clouds

were illuminated 

in a peach light.

They glowed.

It was the most

beautiful sight. 

I thought

people need no

entertainment.  All

they need is this view.

I thought

and still think

that I saw heaven

in those clouds.

God is all vi.

Just as this collection 

of abstractions 

sit inside 

the full space 

of the purple,

our souls are near

each other

and within 

God’s glory.
God is always there.

Between us,

God is there.

When we interact 

with others,

we must remember 

that God is there,

watching.
