Images Of God


God is this and such,

as man imagines him;

he gets to know, he comprehends.

This in turn depends on who he himself is:

- What he does; how he lives.

If he has everything that is necessary for life:

he cares for nothing;

he cares for nothing;

despises others;

he is surprised that he is still alive,

and, like Aristotle, becomes:

"an end unto himself",

it is such 'wonder' that becomes the beginning

of thinking of thinking;

"a thirst for the knowledge that God possesses",

so that he can teach others

and rule others - according to the principle:

"it should not be so,

that the wise man be commanded,

but that he should command;

so that he is listened to;

so that he does not have to acknowledge the view of another,

but that the one who is less wise

must trust him".

The purpose of thinking is to prove,

that one has divine knowledge of God[1].


If, however, man in his life,

takes care of others,

according to what he feels with his heart

and seeks knowledge to help them,

then "he finds the link between being and non-being",

as in the hymn "Rygveda"- the first bards:

Prajapati, Gilgamesh, Homer, Hesiod,

Słowacki in "Genesis from the Spirit" and other poets.

They recognised God in the Universe,

- or gods

and his particle in all of nature

- in every living being;

the voice in the heartbeat;

the image - the likeness - in the body

and joy of life.

[1] the text refers to Aristotle's "Metaphysics".


God According To Aristotle


Aristotle, having all this to live by,

what he needed - apart from wisdom,

which God possessed,

immersed in his thoughts,

 from the concepts of God he created -

in his own image and likeness.

To do this, he multiplied a multitude of words,

which, as concepts, he arranged in a dictionary,

establishing principles for the inquiry into essence,

that which is "substance" - the ultimate being,

unrelated to anything, but self-evident;

unassembled, immutable, unique and eternal;

perfect, happy but also necessary;

the first cause existing from itself;

form, reason - pure energy;

the first spiritual being that moves the world,

being the purpose of the world;

knowing everything that surrounds him,

so he knows nothing more,

in order not to become like that which is known;

thinking, thinking is its only work,

because with thought he rules over the world.

Beyond it is only eternal matter,

as a chain of causally related things,

At the centre of which is the immovable Earth,

around which, like birds in flight,

- whirls the stars in orbit.


Is it any wonder that God and the world were described in this way

- so he created in the image of himself and that with which he was associated,

since, offended at the king, he felt abandoned;

He lost contact with those close to him - he became an end

- in himself and for himself, preoccupied only with the thoughts

busy only with his thoughts, swirling in his grey head.

It was through these that he moved his limbs,

including the hand with which he put words on paper.

He was therefore pure energy in himself

And from himself he drew the form for what he created,

including the shape of letters, words and the meaning of concepts,

In which his thoughts, as in a tomb, he laid.


Having despised all that he had learned and read

- with the thoughts of Plato and the Pythagoreans

he did not wish to learn anything more,

so as not to become like his predecessors.

Socrates openly hated, criticised everything

everything he said; he mocked behaviour.

For he formed concepts not from experience

but from thought, considering that a dream's definition

- should be created - learnt by heart,

before one lies down in bed.


No wonder, then, that only thought was eternally alive

and the world that surrounded him was dead,

for the walls of his house were motionless

and he himself sat almost motionless.

Flat was the sheet of paper on which he wrote the text.

Flat was the table top on which he supported himself.

The flat path in the garden where he strolled.

Hence flat and still was the whole Earth.

Listening to his thoughts, he no longer heard his heartbeat,

nor the voice of the Daimonion that judges actions,

for there was silence all around

and the bliss of thought that keeps him alive.

God's Seat


God is hidden in the darkness

and the visible world is His reflection,

for as the "Book" proclaims: Lucifer

- bears the light of God, but through Him

was thrown into space

and in this space he creates his own entities.


Dark and heavy matter is therefore the

- the abode of God, in which he eternally lives.

It is the centre of the galaxy that surrounds it

and by the force of gravity keeps order in it,

when once it tilts downwards or upwards.


It gives birth to supernovae,

but also everything that loses its energy

- it attracts and devours to digest in itself

And give rise to a new existence.


Everything that is created from Him

returns to Him,

but the Universe expands its boundaries,

as if bodies with enough energy in them

wanted to break free from the bondage of the strongman.

The Nature Of God


God is the causal energy,

in everything that exists.

He in the electron is light and force.

He the mass or body creates.

He is the tri-unity of the photon, the gluon, the boson

but the latter doubles itself,

because it has positive and negative charge.

It is like hydrogen, when it radiates

- into deuterium and triton, it changes.

In the skies the sound [OM; a+ u + m _]

makes itself known, the sound of which

measures the rhythm of life - the flow of sap in plants;

in man, the voice of the heart, or its beating.


In the voices of YHWH as in the neutron,

H is the boson that doubles.

He unifies everything, attracts it, repels it.

He is like the NON-WHITE [ אִשָׁה] who gives birth to a child.


He changes colours when the time counts down

- red to blue or green,

which signify a trinity in coloured robes.

Being one, he is Father, Son and Spirit.


When it gains strength, it brings destruction.

When it weakens it takes away strength.

When it is in balance, it brings peace.

- it spreads a rainbow in the sky.

When it overflows living beings

- they feel the joy of life.

Then a happy bird sings among the leaves

And man raises songs of praise.


But when man loses his strength,

he falls into sadness, often into depression.

He feels lonely and the best food

he does not like it; his eyes mist over.

Then he prays to heaven in supplication,

He begs to be rescued and faith in Him

- keeps him alive,

although he still counts on the care and love

of every human being.

Against The Accusations Of God


It is not this, that or the other God

expects man

the sacrifice of his body and his life,

for the carnal man,

like every living being,

returns to the earth that gave it birth,

thus, that which was taken from God,

if it was light energy,

at the moment of death, returns to Him.


Only those who, in the name of God,

act on earth,

for the sake of their power

and for possession, expect the sacrifice

- of life before death comes,

because in this they wish to overtake

- man and God.


And God has not been silent, if "Scripture" you read,

for after the Flood, He spread the rainbow on the clouds,

forbade the shedding of animal blood

and to judge anyone who killed a human being.


It was not God who sentenced Socrates to death.

It was not God who ordered Jesus to be nailed to the cross.

Piety does not mean, blind obedience to the law,

which is enacted by rulers and priests in the name of God,

so that they can protect themselves from the wrath of the people;

to charge them with sins; to make sacrifices;

judge, punish and take away life

and to promise heaven to the submissive after death.


Piety thus understood for hybris [1] veils;

- lack of thought and will to do good;

and to respect peace.

An ignorance from which most often evil flows,

For as Socrates said:

"justice only means as much ,

which is to be just" and not to persist in stubbornness,

that "he who obeys God or the gods,

he cannot err".

So, too, piety knowledge of the gods means,

about what is pleasing and what is displeasing to them

and what makes peace between them.


Piety is not prayers and sacrifices,

not the recitation of learned formulas and precepts,

but understanding them,

confirmed by one's own behaviour.

It is concern for all that lives,

righteous acts; respect and love

protecting the dignity of every human being,

just as God commanded a moment after the Flood,

when the rainbow, multicoloured, spread out on the clouds.

[1] hybris - ancestral and personal pride;

dominance of emotion in behaviour,

over thinking.
