But Francis wanted to know God, not the Almond Tree Blossoming in Winter, certainly the power of the Divine is greater than this blossoming tree, (which did not contain its summer leafing out for him to see.) Now if he had seen the Big Bang, he might have seen Godâ€”think Cosmically, not this local blooming tree in winter. Can we manipulate God into blooming with a question, does Knowledge of God appear only when asked about by a great disciple? Does it demand a miracle or seen before a child can ask a question? Can a Christian understanding of God be applied to Buddhism. Is Christianity is more about being the blossoming tree for the sake of creation than it is about non being and extinction, and Nirvana. Do we touch deeply or is it God , ultimate reality doing the touching? Different paths no judgement.
