When A Dog Runs Up

When A Dog Runs Up

Start seeing everything as God,
but keep it a secret. 

Become like the man and woman who are
awestruck and nourished

listening to a golden nightingale sing
in a beautiful foreign language while God,
invisible to most, nests upon its tongue. 

           Do you see God in everything? From flat tires to the person you marry? If so, is this a good thing? On the one hand, it might inspire you to be more content with life, that it's God's will for you that this conversation happen or that event get cancelled. On the other hand, when disappointment strikes or blatant laziness, it might not be prudent to say it's God's will, maybe it's just human failure. Do you think we should try to strike a happy balance between the two, or are we better off believing God's hand controls everything and that he resides in all we see?
