    The Consequences of Defining God Differently

    The omniverse is not a magician god or a Zeus god. It is an all encompassing force that runs throughout everything. It is life. It is an organizing force. Someone asked if God created the world. I started to think yes but not like a magician would pull flowers out of a hat...

    This Is How I Look At It

     I see god as this supreme being that is more then names and faces and shapes. But is here and made us to help us learn and grow. I don't believe the bible is truth and I don't follow it, but I do like Jesus's teachings. A non christian can be very christian sometimes. To me god...

    for various reasons. Firstly, by trying to constrain something that is likely so far beyond the grasp of the human brain to comprehend into a tidy, personalized, dictionary-sized entry actually fails to capture what "God" actually may or may not be and the more definition one...

    I Just Wish

    More folks understood that God is different to everyone.  That relationship is based on the person who shares it with God - and really is no business of anyone elses, but that person and God.

    God? God Who?

    What exactly is a god? Simple, someone who has transcended all levels of human proportions to the state of divinity and all that crap. Someone who could do something none of us can. In layman terms, THE GUY'S A SERIOUSLY STRONG DUDE. But guess what? We're strong too. We can...

    I Define God this way

    I was raised a Christian.  I believed God was up there somewhere in Heaven.  I began questioning.  I had a personal life changing experience which led to the rethinking about what "God" is in the first place.  First, "God" cannot...

    Non-locality, Quantum Consciousness, M.o.

    I decided my higher power is M.O., macrocosmic omniverse. It has the characteristics of Goswami's quantum consciousness. Everything around you is made up of consciousness. You are created from consciousness, which surrounds you, animates you, moves through you, and creates in...

    How Do I Discribe The Shape Of The Wind?

    O do not know> I know that I don't think of God as a cosmic Santa Clause waiting to drop our dream house on us.  And I don't think he went to the trouble of creating us just to give us religions no one in his right mind would follow.  I don't believe God is a petulant child...

    Here Goes

    I am a Christian who doesn't necessarily believe that all of the bible is correct or should be taken literally. I believe in a higher power simply because I can feel a higher power. I believe we were created to evolve, so the creation/evolution argument is fruitless to me. I...

    God...is?

    WE CAN BE GOD. Already, some of us call ourselves or our friends 'gods', and they are in their own right. Like, 'sports god' or 'math god'. Anyone who can think for the greater good, and still have the mindset that the concerns of the commoners do not lose out to the needs of a...

    God

    Is no more than the sum total of all the physical laws controlling the universe as a whole,to believe in a God  who is solely concerned with saving humanity,is to delude one self.
