“Things are always happening to me. I’m that sort of bear.” – Michael Bond, A Bear Called Paddington

In the Quechua belief, the Andean Bear is a mediator between the upper world (the gods) and the inferior world (human); it provides a sense of direction, a passage from one era to the another, it maintains order when chaos emerges.

Considering the Nothingness of God

9 03 2017

 “I think Nothing is God. Nothing has always been here. We came from Nothing. They say in the beginning of the Universe, there was Nothing and then all of a sudden there was Something. Maybe we are the Something-Life is the Something-and God is the Nothing. Like a piece of paper before you draw on it. There is Nothing there but that blank place makes creating Something possible. Nothing will always be with us, even if we don’t live – when we die – we will still have Nothing. Why isn’t it okay to call God by a different name, We could call God Nothing and that would be okay too, don’t you think Mami? I think there are many other words for God.” – Philomena (age 10)
