"Quantum physics asserts that the whole is present in every part. And furthermore, that every individual part is a genuine expression of the whole, and yet, no one individual part is the totality of the whole itself. I thought about how the ocean illustrates this truth. I can go to the beach and scoop up ocean water in a Dixie cup. The water in the cup contains the same properties as the entire ocean , and yet obviously , that cup of water is not the entire ocean. In the same way, as spirit or energy, the whole of God is present in every part."
~from "Being Jesus in Nashville", by Jim Palmer
For some years now, this has been my interpretation of God; not the "Sky-God" concept of most of mainline Christianity today. My own "shedding of religion" (Jim's words, not mine) came when I first began to ask questions which I was never bold enough to ask before. Once I began questioning, there was no stopping. Four or five years ago I was introduced to Quantum Physics. It, of course, only added to my questions. But this time, not from a religious pov, but from a scientific pov. Yet, they fit perfectly together in my mind. To me, God is beginning to make sense for the first time in my life. I haven't "arrived". I don't have all the answers. Heck, I probably have less answers than when I started. But, oh my what a trip I am on!

So let me get this straight, God didn't judge America over the millions of Native Americans that were murdered and had their land stolen. God didn't judge America over the millions of Africans that were enslaved and brought to America and worked to death for centuries. And God didn't judge America for not taking care of the homeless, hungry, sick, and dying poor. But now God will judge America over abortion and gay marriage. OK, I got it.....
