The Mystery of God
He is adored and victories of faith and hope are proclaimed in His Name, but at the same time, and also in His Name, violence, agony, destruction and death.
God has created out of Love, but the world seems to be very distant of this spiritual reality. How is it possible that after so much Love, the history of humanity lives, terrible passages of horror?
How to conciliate so much death and destruction with such pure Love, which is so wise and noble? And man, poor man, who between his understanding and lack of understanding, between his believing and doubting, has wrong attitudes and so many differences: In one hand has peace and in the other has war.
An embrace, which also is the embrace of horror, anguish, violence, crime and evil.
God in His infinite Love, wants for man, the same gift that He has: The gift of free consciousness, the gift of been oneself.
That is why, God is God. But man, is at times, too small to be able to understand the infinity of space and its mysteries.
It seems that man, still does not know the difference between Love and lack of Love. Since, in occasions is capable of planning so much horror, of self congratulating in front of a cruel victory. Of calling and looking for violence, of generating envy. But God has created out of Love and the conditions of life were given. When life touches extremes, they become excesses and turn into the freedom of an apparent right, which is to reach and obtain simply anything. But that is wrong.
Man -while in his learning path- loses the sense of spiritual propriety, in other words, the real value of good and he moves away from the true God, in order to believe in a god of revenge, in an assassin, in a mercenary. This is an aberration.
God is not found in revenge, or in injustice. On the contrary, God is found in abundance of Love, in compassion, justice. And never in the misuse of power, rather in the clamor of solidarity, in the smile of a child, in the wisdom of the old man, in the action, when is noble, just and true.
God is Love and everlasting light. There is no darkness in Him, because his Word is holy and His Presence is perfect. But is not only a flattering voice, is also justice and Love to Love itself, which is true life.
God is found in the plains and in the mountains, in the vast heights and is the origin of all heavens. He is also found in the life of all life, in the tree, which is root, trunk, branch, flower and fruit.
God has neither limits nor measures that can contain Him. The man who opens his heart to his fellow man, is the first to know Him. Because the mystery of life and evolution, is found in the eternal compassion. That is the path and the face of God.
