Well, Chuck, you Being a heretic and all, I Would of course expect such an answer coming from you. :-)

But, one could ask oneself:
What is Karma and what is visdom...

  I rather like my comment on God when my wife had her stroke and was in a 
  coma for two weeks, thus causing one of her sisters to comment that "God has a 
  reason for this." My response was, "If your idiot God knew what he was doing 
  in the first place she would not be here!"

  Here are some of my favorite quotes from
  Meister Eckhart (c.1260âc.1328, German mystic):

  "God is exempt from all things and he is
  all things."

  "He who thinks that he sees God, if he
  see aught sees naught of God."

  "I do not find God outside myself nor
  conceive him excepting as my own and in me."

  "If I were not, God would not be God."

  "All creatures are pure nothingness. I
  do not say they are small or
  petty: they are pure nothingness.p

  "The being [of things] is God."

  "The being and the nature of God are
  mine. . . . the spark in the soul is beyond
  time and space; the soul's
  light is uncreated and cannot be created, it
  takes possession of God with no mediation; the
  core of the soul and the core of God are one."

  "Why I pray God to rid me of God is because
  conditionless being is above God and above

  "God works, the Godhead does no work."
