Pray To God In Heaven
2018 08 02
I wake at dawn and pray to God in Heaven
to guide me so I can fix every problem.
Though I wait for hours nothing ever happens
so I have to think about how to solve them.
Plato describes God as the clever Craftsman
who molds everything from eternal ideas.
If I allow the spirit of the Craftsman
to influence me, filling me with love,
and awaken in neurons of my brain,
I will become the true Craftsman myself,
contemplating the problems that I face
by investigating nature of the world
to understand process of cause and effect,
then envisioning how I might change things
to transform the shape of material objects,
manipulating matter with my hands,
so I can build the garden of my hopes
and create the Heaven of my desire.
I wake at dawn and contemplate the garden
where I grow herbs, worts, berries, and fruit trees.
Around my garden I build wall of stone
to guard my paradise from hungry thieves.
Now I become God who rules in my Heaven,
fixing every problem with new designs.
Tribes of people wandering through the waste land
knock at the brass gate of my private Heaven.
They kneel before me sitting on my throne,
and pray to me to fix their every problem.
I am the clever Craftsman, God on Earth,
so I organize them in large work force.
I teach them how to build homes, wagons, wheels,
and machines that assist them in their labor.
They tend huge fields of wheat and apple trees,
and herd sheep, goats, and cows on river meadows.
They build high ziggurat where I can reign
to manage our commercial enterprise.
From my small garden of fruit trees in walls
I build vast empire to include all nations.
My descendants rule after me as God
father to son over ten thousand years.
I become the luminous light of power
that gives life to the world as the bright sun.
You wake at dawn and pray to God in Heaven
but I have been dead for ten thousand years.
I return again in each mortal man
who reigns as king, emperor, or president.
Look inside your mind and you will find God,
the Craftsman who makes things with your own hands.
I am the Pyramid Eye watching you,
the conscious spirit inside your own mind.
