ET CETERA OR GOD?


 

ET CETERA OR GOD?
SOME CALL IT ET CETERA, I CALL IT GOD

     Some call it et cetera ... et cetera ... et cetera, 
          I call it God ... God... God...

1. Out or nothingness came beingness, the universe -
earth, water, sky, stars, moon and sun; followed by
plants, fowls and animals, including man, the
masterpiece of Genesis, --
Some call it Evolution;
I call it God.

2. Thunder and lightning, changing seasons, rain,
snow, wind, earthquakes and volcanoes, all
dispensing power, glory blessings and curses, --
Some call it natural phenomena;
I call it God.

3. Grace, splendor, delight, majesty, birds and bees,
flowers and trees, mountains and valleys, rivers
and streams, laughter and ecstasy, goodness
and kindness, --
Some call it beauty;
I call it God.

4. Bliss, tranquility, contemplation, fusion, harmony,
oneness, conscious and unconscious
experienced as the enjoyed, infinity, --
Some call it  communion;
I call it God.

5. The impossible made possible, the improbable made
probable; serendipity, like manna falling from
Heaven, astral projection and bio-invisibleness,
seeing what only God can see, --
Some call it a miracle;
I call it God.

6. Uniqueness, spontaniety, a new creation, self
perculiarly being the self - the unprecedented
and never-to-be-repeated self, here now and
now here, the flow, soul-force expressed, --
Some call it creativity;
I call it God.

7. Masters mastering themselves: Jesus, Moses,
Buddha, Mohammed, Akhenaten, Zoroaster,
Confucius; Sacred Books: the Bible, Torah,
Koran, Bhagavad Gita; Faiths: Christianity,
Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam; the
spiritual essence within every man that
transcends all Faiths and engenders
meaning in livingness, --
Some call it religion;
I call it God.

8. Goodness, caring, tender-heartedness, intimacy,
friendship, acceptance, understanding, empathy,
transparency, presence, healing, music,
sensuousness, sexuality, nakedness,
righteousness, --
Some call it love;
I call it God.

9. Disappointment, despair, failure, aborted dreams,
miscarriage, waking sleep, unwakable silence,
shortening of the lengtening shadow, the final 
leap that frees the soul, the gateway to
immortality, --
Some call it death;
I call it God.

10. The Rapture, perfect peace, nirvana, Karma, eternal
rest, total freedom, existence without trouble or pain,
Paradise on a higher level than experienced by
Grandpa Adam and Grandma Eve, the ultimate
return to Genesis where I never was...where I
always am...an ultimate paradox, --
Some call it Heaven;
I call it God.

11. Undoubedly, you have heard, "A thousand years 
in His sight is as but a day." And, that's not
clock time or calendar time,
Some call it time, --
I call it God.

12. But what about "Time without end... from
everlasting unto everlasting?" --
Some call it Eternity;
I call it God.

13. And did you hear, "We shall all be changed
at the twinkling of and eye; the corruptible
shall put on incorruption?" --
Some call it a mystery;
I call it God.

14. O Christian, did you say "The Father, the  
Son and the Holy Spirit?" --
Some call it the Trinity;
I Call it God.

15. Listen to the words of Jesus, "The Father
and I are one...I pray that they all may be
one, even as the Father and are one." --
Some call it joint-heirs' inheritance, --
I call it God.

16. The Creator of the created, observing
His own handiwork said, "And it was
good...very good." --
Some take g-o-d out of good and call
it zero; I take zero out of good and
call it God.
