There is a Mystic
I am an antitheist. I believe that there is not only no god but that religion is all about power, is man-made and creates more harm than good.
Having said that I recognise that there is a strange connection at work.
I feel attracted to the beauty of rocks, trees, gorges, sea, lakes and sunsets. I am not alone in experiencing these feelings. Our ancestors worshipped these things before they invented gods. There is a majesty about them.
I can lie on my back and peer up into the night sky and experience awe as I whirl with the stars.
I can peer up at the moon and feel some lightening of my thoughts.
It is no wonder that primitive people, without the knowledge that science has brought, would experience these feelings and imagine the power of moon, sun, rocks and trees as possessing the spirits of gods.
I hope we have put this type of superstition behind us.
But Physics has shown us that there is more strangeness in the quantum world than we ever could have imagined.
I believe there is a lot more for us to discover. We are at the very beginning.
I do not have other words to describe the power that resides in these things. There is a mystic at work.
I cannot find words to express the delight in contacting a human being, or an animal. There is wonder, awe and mystery. There is warmth and communion beyond mere friendship.
There is something I will call mystic.
There is a Mystic
There is a mystic
In the sun and sea;
In a grain of sand.
There is a mystery
In the rock and tree
And in the grasping
Of a hand.
