leonard oprea: EQUAL with GOD? / EGALUL lui DUMNEZEU?


leonard oprea


God’s infinity in all directions and in all the senses of human perception and knowledge, constantly and obsessively concentrated the human intelligence in one point: to be equal with God.

Thus, there are three steps:

  • to ignore God
  • to deny God
  • the Faith in God

In all religious ideas and beliefs, as well as in all religions and philosophies of the world, in one form or another, there are these three steps. More or less explicitly. More or less theoretically. And, in the same way, like from the above, there are these three steps concerning the practical ways of every religion and philosophy.

But, in his attempt to be equal with God, even if he succeeds to be and to fulfill his knowledge living on each of these three steps, the Man finally levitates in the empty space created by the inexistence of a visible and cognoscible model of God. Therefore, I emphasize, the Man levitates in that empty space being not in the search of God Himself, but ardently  looking for one of God’s representation perceptible and possible to be known on all the levels of the human being.


Yet, the Christianity offers to the Man the visible and cognoscible model of God: Jesus Christ. In fact – He is the only model, the Only One Model given by God to the world.

Truly – Jesus Christ is the only one man, The Son of Man who crystal-clearly  declares:

“I and the Father are One. (John 10/30)


But, how can you – or me, or any other man – be equal with the Only One Model, when  everyone of us constantly and obsessively has fought and is fighting to crucify Him again and again, day by day along the centuries?


Maybe understanding once and at least one time these words of Jesus Christ:

“On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you.” (John 14/20)

“… twilight over the small/

town…silence, the deserted streets…/

yeah, the life – a ghost…”



Infinitatea Lui Dumnezeu in toate directiile si toate sensurile perceptiei si intelegerii umane, a concentrat in mod constant si obsesiv inteligenta umana intr-un singur punct :

dorinta omului de a fi egalul Lui Dumnezeu.

Exista astfel trei trepte :

  • ignorarea Lui Dumnezeu ;
  • negarea Lui Dumnzeu ;
  • Credinta in Dumnezeu.

Ele exista in toate credintele si ideile religioase, precum si in toate religiile si filosofiile lumii,

intr-o forma sau alta. Mai mult sau mai putin explicita. Mai mult sau mai putin teoretica.Tot astfel, precum mai sus, exista cele trei trepte vorbind despre caile practice in religie si filosfie.

Dar, in incercarea sa de a fi egalul Lui Dumnezeu, chiar daca se implineste existind pe fiecare dintre aceste trepte, Omul finalmente leviteaza in vidul creat de inexistenta unui model vizibil si cognoscibil al Lui Dumnezeu. Deci, subliniez, nu in cautarea lui Dumnezeu Insusi se produce vidul si levitatia, ci datorita necesitatii ardente de a avea o reprezentare a lui Dumnezeu, preceptibila si cu putinta de a fi cunoscuta la toate nivelurile fiintei umane.


Totusi, Crestinismul ofera Omului modelul lui Dumnezeu vizibil si  cognoscibil : Iisus Christos. In fapt, El este singurul model, Modelul Unic daruit de catre Dumnezeu omenirii.

In adevar, Iisus Christos este singurul om, Fiul Omului care declara cit se poate de raspicat:

Eu si Tatal sintem Unul.” (Ioan 10/30)


Dar – cum poti fi egalul Modelului Unic, cind, mereu si mereu, zi de zi de-al lungul veacurilor tu, eu, fiecare dintre noi in mod constant si obsesiv a luptat si lupta neincetat sa il crucifice?


Poate – doar intelegind odata si, macar o… data aceste cuvinte ale Lui Iisus Christos :

“ In ziua aceea, veti cunoaste ca Eu sint in Tatal Meu, voi sinteti in Mine si Eu sint in voi.” (Ioan 14/20)

“… crepuscul peste/

micul oras… mut, pustiu/       

… viata – o stafie…”

Leonard Oprea created the Breathing, an original type of essay in Romanian and world literature.The Breathing is a short, simple yet profound meditation on human condition, a meditation ended by a haiku. But – this haiku does not finish the meditation. In fact, it re-opens this reflection to new questions and responses on human destiny. There are 100 Breathings in Leonard Oprea’s work „Theophil Magus – Confessions 2004 – 2006”, ed. „Universal Dalsi”, 2007, Romania)
