I Need to Be More Real

God did make creatures great and small. Our dogs have a capacity to provide unconditional love. The pups also have a unique, ingratiating ability, unlike wolves, to have the most appealing expressions. These furry creatures dream, which, strongly suggests they too have a subconscious mind.

But we are unique in God’s magnificent tree of life. Each of us is made in the image of God. Isn’t that enough?

Despite that, my ego requires an audience like you to view my written thoughts. I need to dramatize my stories. That ego also requires three books of memoir to ensure that at least somewhere I will not be forgotten.

But if deep in my soul I appreciated how much God loves me, all this self-stuff would be unnecessary. Wouldn’t it?
