Googling Toothpaste (Spirituality, Independent thinking)

Today, at school pick-up, she asked me “Is God real?”

Me – Remembering what a friend of mine asks his girl, I said, “What do you think?”

Her – “I think he isn’t.”

Me – “Why do you think that?”

Her – “I don’t know.”

Me – “Do you think that because you figured out that Santa isn’t real even though many people believe he is and so you’re thinking the same thing about God?”

Her – “Yeah.”

Paused to try to figure out what to say…

Me – “Well, God is real. But God is not a He. He’s not a man in the sky. God is Life. God is the energy that makes flowers grow, the sky, the trees, you, me, everyone. It’s the life force that makes up everything. Some people call that God. Others call it Universe or Life, many names. The nature of this energy is love, abundance and unity. Everything is connected. Do you understand a little?”

Her – “Yes.”

Later in the day, she asked me “How do people make toothpaste, toothbrushes and… skirts?”

Now that will require some Google time!
