Not a bad day today. A little cold perhaps but the sun kept shining most of the time. Had to go out lunchtime to a part of London I just don’t like, and I really hadn’t been looking forward to it. Two bus changes as well apart from the fact they are both long journeys.
In fact, I had I had to go to the computer centre to pick two of my computers up which had both been thoroughly overhauled but now had a ‘clean bill of health’. I got a taxi to get them home and the journey was really quick in comparison to going. The guy knew most of the short-cuts and avoided most of the traffic.
At the ‘centre’, I was told that they had both been thoroughly checked, but were now working perfectly. I had been letting a friend use one of them, and was sure she ’messed it up’ even to the extent of then lying about its condition, when she had caused it in the first place. The people in the ‘shop’ confirmed that they were satisfied that this was the case, and that I could pursue the person for damages if I so wanted to. We’ll see. Would be easy now though, now that I’ve got official expert witnesses.
Back home, I didn’t bother bringing them up to my flat, but put them in an empty room I have been using for storage. I couldn’t be bothered messing about with them actually, as I have everything copied on discs and this has already been transferred to my new computer which I’m working from. Another reason was that I don’t want to clutter the place up, when I have been working so hard recently to clear it!
To the books: I am working on a ‘religious part’ of (rather in) one of the books. I find the section interesting because it gives you a chance to explain attitudes towards various religions and how different people practice them. I have always said that it is not always necessary to go into Churches to find God. (This does not mean that God is any less present inside a particular Church than he is outside of one: if God is indeed omnipotent, then he surly must be ‘in’ both). God is everywhere, surely? You can find God in a Church, of course; but you can also find him in your home; out in the street; out in the country; in some isolated Monastry; even in some forlorn wood. People can find God anywhere if they really want to.
Though this equally works the other way – there is no ‘escaping’ God either! So people who may think they are hiding behind isolated trees (if they have reason to, of course) can be seen just as clearly by that Infinite Principle (or ‘God’) as those kneeling in some Church.
Why do I mention this? Well the book just reminded me, that’s all; and I know you are all (well most of you) always looking for clues as to what’s in the books. I am just writing about the whole human situation in its relationship to religion basically, that’s all. I do feel strongly about this point though . . . The fact that God is really so near, but that so many people just do not realise this fact. (that’s almost tragic in a way!). Some people are literally so surrounded with their own personal thoughts and problems, that they just cannot see the wood for the trees. Indeed, instead of getting closer to God by letting all these problems and human desires drop, they are getting farther and farther away from Divine Principle. Farther and farther away.
Anyway, I ramble. This is just a tiny gist only of one small part of the book. You’ll have to wait to read it all!
Well, think I’ll try and get an earlish night tonight. Its been quite a hard day! Might actually get some well-earned sleep.
And I haven’t forgotten you all either. Sleep tight everyone!
For the moment,
