Questions

Someone asked me,
‘Where is God?’
And I asked,
‘Where isn’t God? ”

Someone asked me,
‘What is God?’
And I asked,
‘What isn’t God?’

Someone asked me,
‘When am I with God?’

And I asked,
‘When aren’t you with God?’

Confused, they went away,
For there are some answers
to which there are questions.
Then they returned and asked some more;

‘Is God everywhere?
Is God everything?
Is God with us all the time?’
To which I asked,
‘What is your god?
Where do you see your god?
When do you spend time with your god?
For what you hold dearest in your heart,
that is where your god is.
The object you spend longest with,
that is your god.
Where you go to the most,
that is where your god lives.’

Confused, they went away,
For there are some answers
to which there are questions.
Then they returned and asked some more;

‘I desire to find God,
tell me what to do,
where to go,
how to find God.’
To which I replied,
‘If God is what you desire the most,
then God has already found you.’
‘How does God know where I am?’
they asked.
‘In the moment you ask, “Where am I?”
That is where I am.’
