All is not as it seems...
[From Beyond Religion III, No.28.]
Are you there...?
I am always here.
Yes? What is it?
I was wondering...
You have no secrets before Me.
Yeah, I know. Well, I was wondering, could you help me lose weight?
People tell me... well, I'm told that I'm considerably overweight.
I meant, why do you want Me to help you.
You are the Almighty. You can do anything.
And you can't?
I am under a distinct impression that I gave you free will. Have you tried abstaining from food?
What, altogether? Surely, I would promptly die! You know I can't do that!
I don't eat.
Ha, Ha! You are...
Yes I know. But have you tried? There were others before you who succeeded.
Then why can't I?
Are you asking me?
Thanks for reminding me. You can do anything you want.
I never kid.
I thought laughter was a divine trait.
Only among humans. You laugh when you are happy but that's a different kind of laughter – it's often quite silent. Laughter also helps you not to take yourselves too seriously. Often you use it to cover up your mistakes.
I never thought of it that way... But laughter is O.K., isn't it?
Much better than tears.
There you go. You are covering up not knowing the obvious.
About this weight business. Can I rally do it on my own? I have tried, you know.
I am omniscient.
Haaa.... I know... I am covering up... Well, can't you help me just a little bit?
I gave you a well-organized body, imagination, mind and consciousness. Isn't that help enough?
You really think I can do it on my own?
You never do anything on your own. I am always with you.
You tend to forget that.
But if you are always with me, then, surely, nothing is impossible!
I think the appropriate comment is ha, ha.
No, I meant...
Shall I ever learn to use the powers you gave me?
Ever is a long time.
It's going to take a while...
Time doesn't really exist. It's a question of faith.
You mean if I believe...
Everything is possible. Faith is not for the intangible. Next to Love, it is the most powerful force in My universe.
But I must believe in You! You are intangible!
Am I? Look around you. I am in everything you see, hear, smell, feel, in every atom and subatomic particle. I penetrate your every thought, feeling, every desire. There is nothing that is not of Me.
I carry the universe on my shoulders. And I made you in My image.
So if I really believe I can loose weight?
You can do anything.
Like a god?
I thought the prophets said ye are gods!?
When you learn to do all the things I do, you shall be Me.
You mean I shall be Me.
That's what I said.
