Ты самый высокий дар от бога,

вернутся к тому пути, которому ты научил нас,
мы так Благодарный твоему дару,
и что мы можем делать добро для вас,

Ramadan
By Timo Schmitz

You are the highest gift of God,
We forget simplicity just too often,
But once in a year you ask us,
To return to the way which you taught to us,
We are so thankful for your gift,
And that we can do good for You!
The world consists of a divine plan,
And every year, people celebrate Ramadan!

Timo Schmitz: “The liveliness of the universe from a philosophical perspective” [PDF] (2017)

In traditional religions, the universe was always described as a living being that encompasses everything. Newtonian Physics however introduced new categories and led to a world-centered undynamic view of the universe, which has an impact on scientifical questions until today. However, this paper does not intend to describe or explain physics, but to build a bridge between science and religion. How did our ancestors see the relation of the cosmos to our world, and what can we learn from them? Even further, this paper intends to show that the idea of God relies on a dynamic living universe, as even in a universe in which everything has a divine plan but no dynmaic, God could have no space to exist.
