I used to discuss this with my Quaker friends and I came to the conclusion that "God" is more about seeking comfort than about seeking truth ( obviously they didn't agree! ).
Did God make man, or did man make God? I pretty sure it was the latter.
Thoughts are a blasted nuisance.
Not quite in the same spatial league, but I used to do that when we lived by the River, in France. Early morning, during the summer, would find me gone from the house, and sitting in our kayak, meandering and just serenely taking in the natural surroundings. I would paddle upstream, maybe a mile or so, (more strenuous at times, than others) then, with but gentle steering, permit the river to take me back down, home, at its own pace.... Those were great days.....
Sounds very nice, and a great way to appreciate the natural world. I'm looking forward to warmer weather, the North Sea is still very cold, even with a wet-suit!
I've been paddling my kayak in the sea and am now beginning to get the hang of it ( I think! ). My favourite thing is just sitting out there for a while, and feeling the movement of the waves and currents, it's quite complex - also very peaceful.
