Is there a God?

Since Moving to Costa Rica, I have found a sanctuary of peace. Where is your Sanctuary ? In busy cities many people turn to meditation. Be it a monastery,church, synagog or temple. I was raised a devout catholic and have fallen away from its precepts. Through my experience I find myself doubting my religion. How about you? I work at reading about different religious ideas and cannot find one  I wish to grasp. Because of my upbringing I do believe in a supreme being, but who or what it is I can not fathom.

The evils perpetrated by religious organizations and groups makes it difficult to believe. Jimmy Jones, priest in the Catholic church, Hitler’s reign of the hebrews, all seem to drag faith down to the devils basement. How many times have we seen Geneside in the name of a supreme being. Whether it is the crusades or today’s terrorist acts  in the name of the Koran. It shakes the foundation of your faith.

I need to pray to God. I would like to believe in the goodness of free will. What about you? Are you not tired of deception, greed and war? Freedoms being taken a way, socialism beaconing at our doorsteps. A wall to kept illegals out sounds like East and West Germany after The War to End All Wars! Yeah, right! Millionaire preachers and Billionaire Religions, hypocrisy on our doorsteps.

Sorry for my pontificating, I wish to see no wars in my life time and the sharing of goodness around the world. No starving families or persecuted countries. Is that too much to ask? A free and united world (FAUW).

Pura Vida

Is there a God

My upbringing tend to make me believe
Knowing God can be achieved
Although there is a lot of information
Showing our bible is misdirecting

Hitchens, a devote atheist
Gives ideas that are hard to resist
He likes to quote modern diseases
To critic our fathers reasons

We live on faith alone
Saying scientist are wrong
That there was no great explosion
That caused the human implosion

Those of us who believe in the here after
A supreme being with whom we can chatter
Relatives who have come and gone
Hoping for a better life we can belong

It is hard for me to believe
Was Costa Rica a gem God achieved
Or did it grow from seeds?
Do science believe when you die
You are only ashes where you lie?

I look upon Costa Rica and smile
I would like to be here for awhile
Not in a hurry to visit God
I would like to be late going to the beyond

I would like to be part of his canvas
Costa Rican beauty will last
