Does God Exist? (for J. Krishnamurti)

If God created you,
you must be extraordinary.

If God made you, you must
be beautiful, full of delight. 

Look at yourself? Are you those

Either we have created God or
God has created us.

In India I have been told
that there are over 3,000

The irony of it!

Thought worshiping thought.
Oneself worshipped and called God.

Notice it, The better part of ourselves. 
The local gods on
the corner, and the ones in Rome
and Japan. We call them by names.

So brilliant. So frightened. 
So fearful. So genius. Out of
a need to be secure, God is
created worshipping ourselves.

No, God is not something 
Created by Humans

Eternity is outside of time. 
A mind and a heart and a soul
free from the burdens of life.

That is God.

No one to tell us what to do
but how to be.
