Killing the One Who Gives us Rest

H Reeves 2


When I read this on my Facebook page this morning, I had a vision of the cosmos as the body of what many call God, and all of us resting on it–or clinging to it–and few of us noticing that we rest on a diety.  It’s not an unusual idea, but one that has its roots in ancient belief systems, particularly the Zoroastrian one, which evokes God and God’s archangels and angels as the earth and the moon, the stars and the sun, the elements of earth, air, fire and water…  And our dependence on them all.  I am torn between the two opposing ideas that on the one hand, we owe all these the greatest consideration, and on the other, that our worst mistakes are God’s mistakes in progress.  Where will it all lead us?
