“So I stood up and did a handstand on my Guru’s roof, to celebrate the notion of liberation….This kind of thing-a spontaneous handstand-isn’t something a disembodied cool blue soul can do, but a human being can do it. We have hands; we can stand on them if we want to. That’s our privilege. That’s the joy of a mortal body. And that’s why God needs us. Because God loves to feel things through our hands.”

Is that not the most delicious book? I loved every page!

The idea of God as a great Santa Claus in the sky doesn’t appeal to me. If I believed in a god it would be in one that needs us as much as we need it. I’ll have to explore that book. Thanks.
Wow, thats kind of affirming. I think God wanted to taste the half a bag of snack size kitkats I just ate.
I love crse’s God! Now that’s my kinda deity.
