The intellectualization of God
Poetry and Music by Andrew Pell

We sometimes view God with an intellectual approach.
Is God some form of super driven life coach?
Do we see God from an emotional point of view?
Are we looking for some inspired divine clue?
God is all of these and much more we can comprehend.
How can the Infinite be understood by the finite?
Perhaps it only takes a divine spark for us to comprehend the light.
God is as real as the air we breathe and the wind that blows.
Intellectually pushing us to and fro.
God is as real as the love we feel.
We are his adopted children by his Divine Seal.
God is the creative principle of all existence.
Even though it is freely given we still offer resistance.
God is always there, every second, every day.
We can always find him in a quiet place when we pray.
God doesn’t need to be intellectualized.
He is above and beyond and external to the intellectual process.
God is omnipresent.
We don’t need to journey far to find the Presence.
Meeting God face to face is the end of the road.
There is no more to be desired.
Our hearts are burning and fired.
