Sabarmati Ashram. The law of value as sovereignty.

The question is whether we may not have more to fear from an absolute freedom in human hands than that same freedom in the hands of God.

Instead of asking, “Is God necessary?” why not ask, What kind of God is necessary for adequate human living, for our common task of reconstruction, for the integration of life, persons, peoples, cultures, worlds?” God’s balance-wheel is true, precise, and powerful: it is the wheel of Justice and of Law. But who is this God whom we adore-else we perish? God is that Reality which is truly of ultimate and of sovereign worth, the inescapable power standing in solemn, sympathetic, majesty above the petty gods we fashion with our hands, our hearts, our minds, our souls. Here is the God above gods, mightier than the mightiest-and yet with limitations on divine powers, providing us with freedom. Here is the God who, with firmness, seeks the the integrated growth of life. Here is the Reality each of us meets in all of our experience. Beneath these symbols of divinity lies the reality: dim but unmistakable distant throughout all time and space but present in each act of every creature. Unclear though our vision be, we still can see that God has a double face, displaying the mask of tragedy as well as the laughing mask of sheer delight. God with this double face, stands under and above our shells, our walls that hide us from our deeper selves. Living and feeling with our suffering, the weakness and divisiveness with the total person and the total culture having a craving for togetherness, for growing synthesis of life with life, God so understood–is the sovereign reality. God the perennial destroyer of our patterns of exclusive pretentiousness, our insulting, isolating apathy, our rigid impositions, our demand for conformity to our values, our preferences, our way of doing things; the breaker of restrictive boundaries between groups; the puncturer of our damning, desperate, proud idolatries of race and nation, sect and self. The true God, even the God of Love, is the

Leveler of pretensions, the overturner of our lust for sacred idols of infallibility. This working is one piece with God’s creative passion: the fascination for the growing process, the ever-present push toward health and wholeness, the sacred lure toward distant goals–as yet unrealized. God is that reality which is of ultimate, integral, sovereign worth; and whether it be the creative, sustaining, redeeming or leveling work within our lives and times, this universal Becoming Being is operative. This reality is the God of the scientist, who frames, corrects, rejects hypotheses about the ways of people and things seeking always for the exact question between what is in fact and the theory about the fact. This is the God of the sculptor, the architect, the poet, the composer, the dancer, the artists who give inspiration to fashion forms of beauty for delight, for expression of their new found meanings, and for relating self and others to what matters most. This the God of the mother who expresses in her fond maternal care, the genuine concern of God for all the creatures, and who, with her partner, joins the sacred common quest for joy, for liberation for life in more abundance: who establishes and maintains order maintains ordered ways of living. This is the God that all people have loved throughout all ages. This is the God of free faith. Here is the valid object of our reverent search for truth and beauty, justice and integrity. This the power of Wholeness we love when we will to live and will to grow. This is the God we dread when we will to thwart the growth value in the world. Here is the God of all religious experience; that is to say, of all our experience that stretches toward fulfillment, toward deeper harmony of life with life.

Deliver me today in your might.  Autumn insulted is envious of spring whose glory undiminished covers the earth. Listen my friend forget your shame. Fill life with purpose. Hear the songs that re-create love’s belief.  They fill the soul that is always beautiful, holy which the dancing waves bathe. The youth gathers bounty in front of the world. Deliver me today in your might.

Credo in Unum Deum Patrem Omnipotentes, Belief in One God. Creed of Catholic Liturgical Rites. MK Gandhi’s Charkha, Symbol of Sadarangile, the Eternal.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipotentem, factorem coeli et terrae, visibirlium onmium et invisibilium, Et in unum Dominum Jesum Christum, Filium Dei unigenitum. Et ex Patre natum ante onmia saecula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lumine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Genitum, non factum, consubstantialem Patri: per quem omnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos homines, et propter nostram salutem descendit de coelis. Et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto ex Maria Virgine: ET HOMO FACTUS EST. Crucifixus etiam pro nobis; sub Pontio Pilato passus, et sepultus est. Et resurrexit tertia die, secundum Scripturas. Et ascendit in coelum: sedet ad dexteram Patris. Et iterum venturus est com gloria judicare vivos et mortuos cujus regni non erit finis. Et in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum et vivificantem: qui ex Patre Filioque procedit. Qui cum Patre, et Filio simul adoratur et conglorificatur: qui locutus est per Prophetas. Et unam, sanctam, catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam. Confiteor unum baptisma in remissionem peccatorum. Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum. Et vitam venturi saeculi. Amen. I believe in one God, The Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth,  and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord, Jesus Christ the Only-begotten Son of God. Born of the Father before all ages. God of God, Light of Light, true God of True God. Begotten, not made, of one substance with the Father. By whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven. And became incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary: AND WAS MADE MAN. He was also crucified for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And on the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and His kingdom wil have no end. And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son. Who together with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, and who spoke through the prophets. And one holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I await the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
