Beautiful Manifestation of God
“Who is the most beautiful manifestation of God?” It’s a question that makes us fly to dreamland to search, to make us recognize the many people who we think are bad for not giving favor to us. Talking about search, we never know who the first thing we must recognize that we are always wrong in making a search. As said Al Capone: “I have spent the best years of my life giving people the lighter pleasures, helping them have a good time, and all I get is abuse, the existence of a hunted man.”
That’s Al Capone speaking. Yes, America’s most notorious Public Enemy, the most sinister gang leader who ever shot up Chicago. Capone didn’t condemn himself. He actually regarded himself as a public benefactor, an unappreciated and misunderstood public benefactor.
Not much different with Capone, “Two Gun” Crowley he wrote a letter addressed “To whom it may concern.” And, as he wrote, the blood flowing from his wounds left a crimson trail on the paper. In his letter Crowley said: “under my coat is a weary heart, but a kind one, one that would do nobody any harm.”
A short time before this, Crowley had been having a necking party with his Girl Friend on a country road out on Long Island. Suddenly a policeman walked up to the car and said: “Let me see your license.”
Without saying a word, Crowley drew his gun and cut the policeman down with a shower of lead. As the dying officer fell, Crowley leaped out of the car, grabbed the officer’s revolver, and fired another bullet into the prostrate body. And that was the killer who said: “under my coat is a weary heart, but a kind one, one that would do nobody any harm.”
Crowley was sentenced to the electric chair. When he arrived at the death house in Sing Sing, did he say, “This is what I get for killing people”. No, he said: ‘This is what I get for defending myself.” The point of the story is this: “Two Gun” Crowley didn’t blame himself for anything.
Not only the two stories are interesting, but the most interesting story is the story of when we try to understand the other person to fix ourselves first. But unfortunately we never had time to improve ourselves, before we try to understand others. So when we get an answer about “Who is the most beautiful manifestation of God?” then the answer is “ME”.
