ARE YOU GOD ALMIGHTY?
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
7 November 2014
Are you God Almighty?
I’m pleased to shake your hand
I’ve got a pile of troubles, dude
I know you’ll understand
One day sun is shining, next day full of gloom
One day I’m ascending, next day ‘meet your doom!’
So while I climb that ladder to
Walhalla in the sky
I’m happy to pay homage to
Great umbrage by my side
I might be wonderin’ one day
If you are in the wings
Then tumblin’ mumblin’ headlong feel
That song my own heart sings
What joy, what titivation can
One little organ bring!
What vastly great elation when
My own spirit’s king
So, my dear God Almighty
I shake your potent hand
Acknowledgin’ that ‘wow! get real!’
Is where my true soul stands
. . . . .
In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
(1) In a way, the God the Father mental filter is also characteristic of our relationship to small groups in general … our community or ‘tribe’, our church, our nation, our culture, our particular planet Earth. They put an energetic ‘cap’ on our hearts. As we step out beyond these many ‘caps’ or roles, we allow ourselves to come into our own Remembering. Our own relationship to the All.
