_Question:_ Dear Guru, has God ever been bald?

Guru: People may say that a bald-headed man needs hair to add beauty to his physical reality or for the protection of his head. But I wish to say that by having hair, God’s Head will not increase in beauty, because He is all-Beauty. No matter what He has on the physical body, He is all-Beauty; therefore, no amount of hair will add any beauty to His Head. And God, being omnipresent, is definitely inside His own Head, so He does not need hair to protect His Head. His omnipresence and His omnipotence are always together; they are one. Therefore, He does not need the help of hair to protect His Head, and He does not need hair to add beauty to His Head or to His Face or to His Body. But I wish to add that each human being is not only a representative of God, but also God Himself. So my Kanan, the God whose head is on the road to baldness, will not cause pain at all in the Supreme’s Heart of absolute oneness. But because of my oneness-sympathy with his better half, I may feel some human sorrow if I see a silver boat sailing to and fro comfortably and freely on my Kanan’s silver-head-river.
