“100 Little Thoughts about God, Man and Society”

August 5, 2009 at 6:15 am Leave a comment

Written by Dr. Dick van Geet in memory of Dan. These thoughts are the “tiny purple drops” resulting from 49 years of deep conversations that Dick and Dan began when we were next door neighbors in Utrecht, Holland.

HAPPINESS

1. The expression ‘happy few’ should be replaced by ‘lucky few’. It is not richness nor success that makes someone happy.

2. You want to be happy? Forget your ego !

HEAVEN

1. Our image, our idea about  heaven often is just a simple extrapolation of our earthly experiences. Or projections or desires. With bad reasons!

2. How full is heaven?

Some people say: If something like a heaven might exist it would be a rather busy place with so many people. So they mean: it cannot exist. But did they ever hear from Immanuel Kant ?  The famous philosopher said: Space is just a form of observation; we cannot do without it but it does not belong to the ‘real reality’ (‘Ding an sich’). Said in a popular way: In heaven there is no such thing as space, so the whole problem is illusionary, it does not exist. A problem like fullness cannot occur there.

HONOUR AND POWER

In principal there is enough of everything for everyone. But if we have to divide honour or power there is  never  enough.

IMAGE OF GOD

1. Making ourself  an image or conception of God (and we all do) is a kind of using his name in vain.

And how is Anne?  People are wondering, guessing, being concerned.  Anne has benefitted from deep healing grief recovery therapy, and is doing well.  I’m thankful that I have no more lethargy.  I still, and always will, miss my Dan.  He was my soul mate who helped me learn more about God, more about God’s love and grace, who helped me walk closer with Jesus.  Now, I commune with God daily, am comforted by Him.  God promised to be a husband to the widows.  He will provide what I need.  The adventure called “Life” goes on for me. — Anne

I hope there will be flowers around the monument of Hungarian leaders on the pavilion in front of the House of Culture in Sfantu Gheorghe when I arrive.
