In our mind’s eye
we gaze into the eyes of God
and our souls declare, ‘God lives!’
We see God’s eyes gazing back
and our souls declare, ‘God loves!’
With eyes of atoms our egos look around and declare God is nowhere.
With eyes of light, imagination, and intuition, we look at
stars, and trees, and plants, and people,
and our souls declare God is now here.
One seeing, one knowing, one love.
As an amateur astronomer, whenever I can, I’m in awe as I gaze upward, using a Meade 12 inch telescope, at the marvels of planets, stars, nebulae and more. The photo, above, taken by NASA, is the Helix Nebula, also known NGC 7293. It is a large planetary nebula located in the constellation Aquarius. It’s commonly known as the Eye of God. Isn’t it beautiful?
