Poetry: The language of God is a silent one, without any words, as such

Poetry comes pretty close to representing the language of God's love at times.

Its hidden messages are often written in the silence between the lines.

Here are some recent poems of mine about God's language, love, and laughter.

Poetry: God's language is no language

Man thinks, & God laughs.
We frown, God still smiles.
We live for ourselves, alone?
God lives as us, on our behalf.


God's silence speaks volumes
His silence is not a timely silence,
because time only exists for us.
We time our silence into noise.


We try to judge how our love works.
God just loves, we receive the perks!
Love follows no laws man's invented.
God made no laws. Love's contented.


Language should be used to clothe love,
not to disrobe how it comes to us from above.
Sure, we can write the top line of our play,
but the bottom line must exist in Heaven.


Words put love into a place of feelingness.
but love cannot be contained in such words.
Love must remain un-caged within your heart.
Stop putting blinds from your mind around it now.


Explanation needed?

Love becomes alive in you when you stop hating, or re-acting to it.

Just begin to have faith in the process of growth. Be like a tree that grows in its way, without any thought of tomorrow.

On the other hand, we all have our own purpose to fulfil for God, or our own reason for being us.

What is the purpose of our having such a purpose?

The purpose of a purpose is to bring elemental changes to each infinite part of oneness. With oneness having itself the sole purpose to only always love, sub-purposes must be formed, created, and lived from, and for, by the infinite parts of oneness, being themselves (their real selves that is) within oneness.

"If love is the treasure, laughter is the key."

So said the Russian comedian, and writer, Yakov Smirnoff. I am sure that God knows this too.

Poetry: Does God hear me talking to him, or not?

The truth of obedience gets heard.
The sin of disobeying goes unheard.
The love of God only hears goodness,
but the hearing of his love, hears all.


Resisting love, requires our deafness.
Requesting God to hear, grows louder.
God always hears us, as he hears all.
We just do not hear God, hearing us.


God hears the message of our hearts.
Our minds will find him still stone deaf.
Pray with the earnest prayer of love,
& hear God hearing, even as you pray, today.


God is a God sometimes blind, or deaf, it seems.
Love is God's language. All can hear it, in its themes.
Does God hear you? Yes, always he does. He hears all.
Does God hear me? Only if I hear him, in me installed.

How can we hear God better?

Practice of anything is first believing in it as a possibility, and then it is about adding to the belief by moving ourselves towards the object of that belief. Practice does not necessarily make for perfection, but it does help, as long as we are motivated to try to hear God.

As you move towards God, and this means that you believe in him more, rather than distancing yourself from him by doubting his very existence, you commence an associative alliance with God, and as you begin to see more of him in every part of your life, you will then listen more to every part of your own life, as well as to all life in general.

This means that you will now listen to God more, because you will hear him speaking to you from all things.

When we love, we release more love from the heart of God. This means that the more that we love, the more that we can hear, and feel God's presence within our lives.

You can hear God by allowing God to hear you.

This means that you must speak to God and pray to God every day, so that this opens and keeps open, the communicative link between God and yourself, and so the channel of hearing and communication really always goes both ways.

God is always talking to us, it is us that must listen more to hear him.

Fear prevents us from hearing ourselves, and this then prevents us from hearing God, as well. When we love ourselves, we hear ourselves, and so then, we will more often hear God also. We can only hear God by using the ears of love that are located within our hearts.

Sometimes, even if we do hear God talking to us, we still do not act, or do what he is telling us to do.

Why is this so, how can we understand God, as well as just hear him?

Love brings you understanding as long as you allow love to live openly in you. Listening to God is allowing this love to interpret his words for you, so that you can better understand love's truths from God's words, and that are always talking to you, coming to you from out of every life experience.

"If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough."

This is a quote from the German philosopher, and mystic, Meister Eckhart (1260 to 1328).

He is right here I think, as long as that prayer is earnest, and sincere. I talk about such prayer next.

Prayer comes close to being God's language

Prayer is a meditational response to the love in you trying to go back to God. Love then is always a prayer to God in this sense, because God is love, and a loving prayer communes with God, just as much as you pray it from the love that is within your own heart.

Listening to God is a form of prayer, because it is respecting God, and this is in effect loving God.

God speaks the language of love, and his words are always embracing the totality of the oneness of love. There is no yes and no in love, love is more than just being answers. Love just loves in spite of all else. God's word is the same as God. The Christian bible tells us this.

It says that in the beginning was the word, and the word was God.

This truth is to be found in the book of John, chapter one, and verse one.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

Words connect creation to God, and words carry God's love.

This is why God created us, so that his words could be heard by parts of himself being him, from him being them within themselves. To hear God, we must be the God part that is him within us. When we allow God to live in us being us, we will hear God being us, within him.

God answers you by loving you, and then hoping that that same love will then get through to you. It is you that are really answering in either the yes, or the no response to God's love, as it enters you. God only loves you, you always do all of the rest.

We can practice hearing God better then by becoming more consciously loving. As we understand love more awarely, we grow in the consciousness of its truths, even as they are always present living within us becoming us.

These truths, all unconsciously already known, move to conscious knowing, as much as we commune with God, and listen to him by seeing his love, and which is coming to us from out of every single life experience, that we will ever go through.

Look for love, and you will always find it. When we look for the love, we are listening to God, and hearing him, at one and the same time.

The truth of our obedience gets heard by God, but the sin of our disobeying goes unheard. The love of God only hears goodness, but the hearing of his love, always hears all. This means that it is resisting God's love that creates our own deafness towards him, even as our requesting of God to hear us, at the same time grows louder. God of course always hears us, even as he hears all else.

How can we hear God's message more loudly?

It is we that just do not hear God, hearing us.

God hears the message coming to him from our hearts.

"In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart."

The English writer John Bunyan, (1628 to 1688) (who wrote the well-known book, "The Pilgrim's Progress") said this.

What we say in our minds about God often finds God still being stone deaf. We need to pray with great earnestness a prayer of love, to hear God hearing us, even as we pray. This must come from our hearts, and not from our minds.

Prayer must not be about us wanting anything from God for our own selves, but it must be more about us giving our lives back again to him, in loving service of God, and this results from us always hearing his voice, and then deciding to follow his will. In this way, we become loving servants of God.

God is a God that might sometimes seem blind, or deaf, but love is God's language, that all can hear.

Does God hear us?

Yes, he always does.

Does God hear me?

Only, if I hear him.

How can we hear God amongst the din of our own selves talking?

You hear from not hearing yourself. Be still, and hear God within you.

"Be still, and know that I am God."

This advice is written for us in one of the old Testament Psalms of the Christian bible. It comes from Psalm 46, 10.

This is how meditation works, drop your own thinking and find the thinker behind these thoughts. It is God. God thinks all thoughts, you only rethink them, thinking that they are yours, and then repeating them over and over, and so placing too much importance on them , and blocking new thoughts from coming in.

This is why the great spiritual masters all usually advise us to empty ourselves first, and then we can refill ourselves with the new words coming in from God. Life is a process of flow, not of holding onto anything.

When we empty ourselves of our owned held onto thoughts, our ears can be turned again to hearing more of God's thoughts, as they continually come into us newly each and every moment.

I really like this, " Be still and know that I am God."

How can we hear God amongst the din of our own selves talking?

yes thanks Carol, I have always liked that verse too.

If we get out of the way, there is always God right there all the time.

Our "noise" tends to set walls of separation around us.

Thought provoking Spirited and the message is clear.

The onus is on us to reach where we want to go. Silence is more than golden!

Just because we have ears does not mean we hear! And the deaf may have sharper hearing and knows what God wants!

We have to do His bidding and for that we should pause and listen and then act - siva

thanks siva, I believe Jesus said something about having ears and not using them, or eyes and not seeing too.

"Be still and know that I am God" is one of my favorites too. God speaks to us in the stillness. Life itself is a prayer. Blessings.
