Morning has Broken

I was getting behind on sleep, so I took a long nap. I woke up refreshed and ready to tackle some weeds that had gotten out of control in my yard. I was out back yanking the little things out of the ground, putting a premature end to their short lives, when God stopped by. I wasn’t too sure how he would feel about me killing off some plants for no better reason than aesthetics, so I quickly searched for something else to talk about. So I asked God if he ever slept.

He said that he napped occasionally but that when he did, things like World War Two tended to crop up, so he tried to keep them short.

I pushed on, wondering if he only napped or if he ever got the God equivalent of a really good night’s sleep. He told me that he had gotten one long ago. He said that scientists even had a name for when he woke up from his last really good sleep. They call it the Big Bang.

Waitaminute – Toby, you’re contracting yourself. Didn’t you say that he/she doesn’t get involved elsewhere?

Why should the observance of G_d change the outcome of diplomatic failure if he doesn’t meddle? I’m with Mark Twain when he wrote
“Not a sparrow falls to the ground without His seeing it.”
“But it falls, just the same. What good is seeing it fall?”

If you think about it, G_d’s pretty morbid.

God’s told me that he mostly doesn’t get involved, but he’s also said that the whole universe can be thought of as a construct in his mind, so in that respect, he’s involved in everything. So I suppose it might come down to a question of how conscious his involvement is and maybe even to a question of how much self-deception might he engage in.
