You are God.

God is necessary. People generally know nothing of what happens around them. The last two centuries Western folk, who were so stupid to leave god in a book, tried to improve their own life with technology, thereby closing the spiritual sense of life of from society. They call this "progress". Their most tangible proof: Prosperity. What is prosperity? Living a healthy and a long life. Is this good for "Life" it self? Probably not. The consequence of this is, as it happens, an indescribable quantity of Washingmachine-manuals, DVD's, gang's, car accidents and the acceleration of the destruction of their planet.
However, there is a remarkable characteristic that binds itself to prosperity; luck. One considers oneself more fortunate than before. But how can we ever know this? No writings have been left behind like: "My name is Pedro, it is meanwhile the 13e century and I am in general, as is my society, deathly-unfortunate. I think that generally most of the people were in the past happy. I cannot prove this, therefore I think it.
I also think that nowadays most of the people are happy. And how about the 3rd world? Ok, they are not fortunate. There they are poor and unfortunate, hence all the shooting. They are, as it happens, angry and desperate. We, in the west, have set up global economy. We have almost eradicated Native-American civilisation, but now we get to eat nice bananas. We looked for luck far away from home. We expanded and developed more recreation, such as music, theatre, sport and art. All this, because of our weak spiritual base.

Now God, a successful and strongly commercialised form of Okpotalja, dominator of the dropping birds from trees some centuries ago in slave-ridden Jamaica, however is no recreation. God is serious shit. Inventor, mighty ruler, king and, not to forget, omnipotent. Physicists say that there is the endless conservation of mass and energy, and that things can be only converted. Creation is therefore impossible. But in my eyes physicists still cannot explain why something happens. They can explain how it happens and what preceded the proces, but the question of why the molecules, powers and fields connect in this way can only lead to discussions which are only for understandable for a small elite, which have no connexion with society. This way they in fact become superfluous.
Meanwhile at camp god, one will speak of several worlds. The rather childish view of heaven and hell, the pseudo-scientific Kabbalah, where you can only say something sensible if you
are a man above the age of 40, the eastern views of reincarnation, the roman-cultish views of parallel universes, etc.
In short: nobody actually knows why and thus we remain with and empty field which we can fill with the weirdest, undefinable, senseless word: God.
But, God is not your mother! I don't care how spiritual you are, you remain people, simple evolved animals, that live on - or near - the ground, we call earth. The phenomenon God functioned in former days in the eyes of the people as a man of War, Politics and Government - he arranged asylum for the Jews and set them up with a Promised Land. But now, as our scientific knowledge is growing, we know more about our actions, the causes and the effects. We are able to observe and rationalize the largest part of what we sense.
God went from leading role player, to director, to producer and now he is the audience in our movie. Even in the case of natural disasters - always God's hit number in old writings - he does not take part anymore. Individuals within human society are therefore more capable without aid of God. Or not?
Because mothers also exist in your feelings, your inner self-sense. God is a little voice in your head. Christians seem to have already agreed to the compromise: God is your behavioural standards and values. Live good, honest and sincere and then have you God. Be open for God and all will go well. But this leaves space for interpretation as for some listening to Slayer feels good, or even burning a trash can.
Well, before this tale is silted up in a... uhm... desert, I wantto make my point clear: Technology, culture and luck are matters that you yourself have in your hand. It is a question of your orientation on living. This is not new, there are already a heap people who tried to make this clear. Buddah, Jesus, Mohammed. But to call a couple. People, yes simply people, that tried to convince other people being that they should focus more on their spiritual health. To persuade them they talked of heavenly kingdoms and devotion. Unfortunately we are psychopatic and greedy herd animals. Together we came so far tha now, our earth, our existence, are all easily destroyed.
Way to go!
