Golf with God… A Dream

I decided the other day to go and play golf: due to adverse weather conditions I had not played for some time and was really looking forward to a game. As I approached the first tee, suddenly I heard this voice behind me, asking if he could join me for a game. I said yes, of course, and introduced myself to him, saying my name was Mike; we shook hands as he said his name was God! 

I teed off and hit my ball 200 yards, slightly to the right, then God teed off and hit his 350 yards straight up the middle! I watched in disbelief as it occurred to me that maybe he is God. As we walked down the fairway, I asked if he had a family and he replied “Yes, everyone is my family”…
 

I pondered on this as we walked down the second fairway, once again a short distance to my ball and a long, long way to my playing partner’s. Out of the blue, God asks me what I thought was wrong with the world
 today.

I thought, why is he asking me?… but then I replied “Many things – there are too many wars, widespread racism, general hatred, total disregard for one another, corruption on a grand scale fed by man’s greed for power – in fact, man’s utter inhumanity to each other, and that is just for starters.”

As we continued around the course, (after 3 birdies and an eagle, making God 10 shots up after 4 holes), God asked me to explain what I meant by some of my statements. With regards to racism, I said,

“No matter what colour a person’s skin, or how we look, we are all human beings; we may be different on the outside, but inside we are all alike, we all bleed red blood and feel pain and sorrow, but like everyone we all yearn to love and be loved.”

“And speaking of wars, what have we learnt over the years? – NOTHING!! Once war was sticks and stones, then bows and arrows and then guns, now it is weapons of mass destruction. When will people learn? When will we learn? We even have people blowing themselves up in your name, God, killing innocent people… but for what 
genuine reason?”

By this time we are walking up the 18th fairway (with God now 37 strokes in front, but who was counting) when He turns to me and says,

“Thank goodness for UNIVERSAL MEDICINE
 where people of many races, nationalities and age groups from all walks of life have got together to look at the way forward in brotherhood; supporting each other to change their outlook on life, accepting responsibility for all intentions, thoughts and actions, learning from past mistakes to be open to everybody, being loving and understanding to all… letting people know there is another way to being LOVE and HARMONY in this world.”

Finally, as we walk off the 18th green God says “We should do this again sometime, and see how we have progressed in our thoughts, love and understanding for each other, no matter what our differences.”

I look round to say thank you by inviting him to join me at the 19th hole for a drink, but no one was there – God was gone.

Or was He?

  1. This was such a beautifully light-hearted read, Mike, and one that got me to consider more deeply just how much God is with us in every moment, waiting patiently for us to connect to Him and always offering us moments to feel his presence. Also, I would say that Universal Medicine has gotten a ‘hole in one’ when it comes to offering the world a true way forward in healing and moving towards creating harmony on this planet once and for all.

  2. How often do we deeply consider the state of the world today, and what it is we have accepted as normal? For if we were to honestly open ourselves up the feeling the real extent of abuse, violence, hatred, and bullying that exists in our everyday, let alone in the world around us, would we be so accepting that this is the quality of life we all deserve to live? And what about love, and why is it that we have forgone living this quality in our lives? It is what we all crave, and it is this quality that we all rightfully and respectfully deserve to live together.

  3. Gorgeous, touching and humorous blog that shares the love of God in its daily practice, as since we are here on earth, we need to embody and bring the love on earth – by our will and through our bodies. That does not mean neglecting our connection to God, but actually re-establishing it and living in the transparency of love, as we cannot hide anything anyway! The ease and purity of this blog — is profound. That is exactly what truth is and what is in us all.

  4. What ever your golf skills… You are so on the ball there when you are talking about war and wondering if we truly have evolved from that. I agree with you that going from spears and swords to mass destruction weapons is in essence no true change as it is still killing people and we are still not being harmonious and loving with each other. The latter would be true evolution from war.

  5. “Thank goodness for UNIVERSAL MEDICINE

    Well said Michael and I love the story thank you.

  6. ‘There is another way to be Love and Harmony in this world’ – there sure is, and we can all be part of this if we so wish to choose and see it.

  7. I love reading this blog Mike, it always makes me smile and realise how far away we hold God, as if we are surprised that he might talk to us -‘what me? Little old me and God?’. But what if he is everywhere always there with you and me? To consider this is to finally admit how supported and blessed we are.

  8. “Yes, everyone is my family”…
 Universal Medicine, bringing the Universal back to humanity and humanity back to the Universe.

    When I read this part I had joy in my heart and tears in my eyes and thanked Gods goodness for universal medicine and thank you Michael for sharing so lovely.

  10. God is love…and we are made from Him and hence we are in essence love. How far have we come from living this truth in the world?

  11. I would love to play golf in this way too, as it is not about counting the strokes but about how we experience life and how much we are able to express and live a more natural life as being presented by Serge Benhayon and Universal medicine and lived by its many students.

  12. Genius writing Mike. Read this with a smile on my face the whole time. Your relationship with God is gorgeous and his words are as wise and true as one would expect, thank you for sharing.

  13. A beautiful read, Mike, so light-heartedly expressing what is o profound. And, indeed, thank goodness for Universal Medicine.
