Vaya con Dios means to Go with God. Throughout history and today, humanity faces challenges of survival. We never know from one day to another whether we will keep our health, life, friends, family or possessions.
To me, God is not the vengeful entity described in many works, a jealous old man in a throne way up there waiting to whack the world for its shortcomings, shortcomings we were designed with.
To me God is indescribable, but it is not a bad thing or bad karma nor evil. God is like being one with the spirit of life and we are all alive.
To walk with God or Go with God means a person cares when they say that, wishing the recipient of those words to be one with God, no more, no less.
For those of you who doubt or reject God’s existence, it is only a matter of semantics. Leslie’s image of flowers represents God in numerous ways. The electrical energy and imagination of Leslie flowed and she created a picture of what she sees, also that representing life, flowers.
We are all part of this web of life, connected by forces yet to be known which I refer to as the spirit of God. I do not believe for a moment the essence which enabled a flower to grow, optimism to rise, hope to be born, beauty to be appreciated and life to be cherished could be from anything other than God.
In that vein, I wish you all, “Vaya con Dios”.
