How is G‑d a king? Does He wear purple robes? Does He sit upon a golden throne?

A king speaks and his word is fulfilled. G‑d speaks and the world comes into being. He is the author and we are the characters of His story.

Such a great author that His characters can speak back to Him, and discuss with Him the path His story must take.

Two Paths - Two Choices - One ending The end destination for the characters in the Story is for humanity to achieve the same quality as G_d - to evolve from egoistic actions to altruistic ones. This is His goal for us.

Two routes are available to us:
We can either chase after pleasures and run away from suffering...... This is the tormented, long path of suffering while G_d moulds us to His form;
or
We can choose the quicker path of working proactively and in sync with the Author's goal.

Either way the story has the same ending - so make your choice .... Reply
