"My God"

People -- what have you done --
locked Him in His golden cage.
Made Him bend to your religion --
Him resurrected from the grave.
He is the god of nothing --
if that's all that you can see.

Jethro Tull

No wonder no one can see Him.

Blessed are the pure in heart
for they shall see GOD

Him Resurrected From The Grave

I don't believe you,
you had the whole damn thing all wrong
He's not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays

But the pure in heart?

The pure in heart.

When?

Anytime, anywhere.

No! How's that possible?

If my glasses are covered with dirt and grime, my vision is blurred. When I clean them, I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles.

When my heart is filled with hatred, bitterness, envy, murderous thoughts, witchcraft, pride and jealousy, I see everything from a perspective smeared with junk.

When my heart is washed clean, I see Him in every grain of sand.

I can't wash my insides.

You got it!

Hold up! Slow down, Way down. Who in the world is Tull referring to, "Him resurrected from the grave?" What is that about? Easter is about Bunny Rabbits, chocolate eggs and silly myths. No one rises from the dead. Get serious.

But, Jethro Tull, in some nutty, contrived ruse, produces a song all about this nonsense, as if it's real or was real, or they are simply spoofin on us. (But Tull plays this music like it's personal. I hear the anger, the resentment and bitterness in every word, in every note from every instrument.) Sup?

"He is the God of nothing if that's all that you can see" What? Of course you can't see God, DUH! There ain't no God. He's not locked in some golden bird cage. And He can't be seen because He does not exist.

O, you mean people put Him in a cage? Now, how do humans do something to God? There ain't no God, but if there were, mankind can't do anything to Him, so what's up?

Bend to your religion? I hate religion. O, you mean people who use religion? Well, of course. That's what religion is: a way to control people. So, wait, Tull, are you saying that as people use religions for their own ends, then He's locked in a cage, not free? Not free to be viewed for who and what He really is? He is the God of nothing if that's all that you can see. You mean, if people use God, God is invisible?

there can be no God. If God existed He would have stopped all the hell done in His name, period.

Mother never would have beat up my sister, pulled her hair out, left her catatonic in the living room behind the curtains next to the picture windows.

No? No?

Free will.

Free will?

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

After life is lived
and we're bolting down the home stretch
and we question why we ever lived
where do we wind up?

When I was young
And they taught me how not to play the game
I didn't mind if they groomed me for success
Or if they said
That I was just a fool

"So to my old headmaster
And to anyone who cares,
Before I'm through,
I'd like to say my prayers.

So I asked this "GOD" a question
And by way of firm reply
He said, "I'm not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays."

Iin your pomp and all your glory
You're a poorer man than me
As you lick the boots of death
Born out of fear

I don't believe you.
You had the whole damn thing all wrong.
He's not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays.

Tull

"The misconception which has haunted philosophic literature throughout the centuries is the notion of 'independent existence.' There is no such mode of existence; every entity is to be understood in terms of the way it is interwoven with the rest of the universe." ~Alfred North Whitehead

An unnamed Grenfell Tower survivor, upon being asked by a BBC reporter "In times like this, do you turn to faith for strength and support?"

"Even a tragedy such as this is no reason for a willful indulgence of the irrational."
