TO THINK ABOUT GOD

TO THINK ABOUT GOD
To think about God is to disobey God,
Since God wanted us not to know him,
Which is why he didn't reveal himself to us...

Let's be simple and calm,
Like the trees and streams,
And God will love us making us
Beautiful as streams and trees,
And will give us greenness in his spring,
And a river to go when we end!...

///

Pensar em Deus é desobedecer a Deus,
Porque Deus quis que não o conhecêssemos,
Por isso se nos não mostrou...

Sejamos simples e calmos,
Como os regatos e as árvores,
E Deus amar-nos-á fazendo de nós
Belos como as árvores e os regatos,
E dar-nos-á verdor na sua primavera,
E um rio aonde ir ter quando acabemos!...

by Alberto CAEIRO (Fernando PESSOA), from "O Guardador de Rebanhos" (The Keeper of Sheep)
