God and Corona

 This is a true story taken recently from the pages of life in the coronavirus era:
Young daughter, age 3, to mother: "I would like to see God".
Mother: "God is not visible. No one can see God."
Daughter: "Can one visit where God lives"?
Mother: "No."
Daughter: "Corona?"
!!! Whoah !!! Out of the mouths of babes....
Children grasp the concept of "social distancing" quickly
... and apply it universally.

Even if we universally practice social distancing, we remain players in a world
in which everything is related to everything else, whether we like it or not,
even things that are not visible to the naked eye, such as COVID-19.

How can an invisible virus be reconciled with day-to-day reality in OUR universe
-- a universe in which we are neither outside looking in, nor inside looking out.
Rather, we are inside our Universe looking inside our Universe.
It remains an unsolved mystery that is at the root of science and religion.

As Giordano Bruno pondered, and we paraphrase here:
"If the world is a wheel within a wheel, and has no beginning or end, 
then where are we?"

Similar questions arise when confronted with the world's present situation.

Years ago, we wondered
what "God" thought when the present visible Universe came to be,
even if it has already always existed for eternity in invisible form....

As an answer, we composed and published the song I'm the Way
found online as I'm the Way by Andis Kaulins.mp3, duration of 2:40, at

Now that man and woman have come forth out of the primeval void
and have been domiciled on Planet Earth for quite some time
what do current events mean in the greater scope of things?

Corona?

Has God taken "social distance" to modern humankind?
And if so, how do we return to God's grace?

Just sayin'....
