Simplifying Complexity

The earth is my country
…humanity my race.
I believe a Creator put us here
making the complexity of our arrival
vastly superior to our thinking capabilities

Thoughts travel faster through centuries
and quicker than light.
The worst nightmare for our enemies
is for us to wake up
from centuries of slumber with self-deceiving consciousness

There is no compulsion in faith.
We resolve our differences
with compromise and mutual respect
using our God given wisdom
and rid ourselves of madness that kills and runs in the name of faith.

Our prayers convey priorities for our relief.
It’s not as if the Creator
is unaware of our condition.
Complex plots are laid for simple people like us
to suffer if we don’t understand.
