Well, it has been my experience that we generally find what we're looking for at any given time, sooo...

Could someone please be so kind and answer one question. Why do you feel the need to believe in a god in the first place?

It's an awareness that Love is always there, even if I become distracted by other things.I guess it depends what I'm looking at.

In my youth, feelings of melancholy would haunt me and sometimes I would feel like I was so alone. As I grew up and started my spiritual journey in earnest, dark nights of the soul would plague my efforts from time to time.

After that experience I described, my doubts about the futility of life have withered, because I feel Love is really all there is.A part of duality died that day.


Individuals image of God is a personal thing.For me, beyond images God is good.The spirit and force manifesting in all things, if only we have the eyes to see it...

If you look at a basketball court, but didn't know the first thing about basketball. Would you not be able to tell it was built for a purpose, one which you did not fathom? And that would be because of the lines in the ground and the hoops... Because those represent the physical counterpart to the rules of the game... Our reality has rules too and has a "court" shaped around those.

I don't know if I would equate God with anything in the physical. I think anthropomorphism, attributing human qualities upon a deity, is one of the biggest hindrances to understanding the nature of the deity. I don't view God as being much like humans at all.

People say, "We were made in God's image." To me, that would only apply to the spirit, not our physical form or physical emotional tendencies.

Just my take on it.

Sorry but that analogy is not correct in my book. Basketball is not praised as the ultimate sport and people don't go around to convert you with any means they deem necessary. God is always linked to a religion too. I need a little bit more then that.

You make good points and ask good questions. A finite being would not be able to accept the existence of an infinite being for obvious reasons of limitations. A finite being would only be able to accept their own limitations.

I expressed as much to my ex, that god is within, if anywhere at all. I simply have not felt any external reverence.

I do feel that to be honest, that giving is all I am meant for. Which creates problems when I need for myself. I used to be a student, learning to be a counsellor but soon realised it taxes me far too much. So I opted to help the homeless, I'd sit with them and just listen.

But the nagging wants, that everyone else has, was too distracting. Love, for one. Not just lust. It broke me, I suppose. Many facets to the thing that I am, have. And it was at my worst that I reached out for god to give me strength, but it never came. I don't know if it is me, or if it was never going to be there.

Some of us just have to accept that we are external souls, I suppose. Window shoppers. reflections so others can see themselves with a different perspective. looking on at a world around, and I guess, finding solace in that we can be road maps for others towards their own happiness. Obviously not as I type now. the deep scars reveal words I mostly keep hidden...

I had a NDE a few years ago. I don't recall God as being male or female. I had the typical bright light deal so God held no physical form. Guess I should go back and read the thread to understand how you came to believe God was female.

Don't be so small minded. An omnipotent God can be both the anthropomorphic and pantheistic kind at the same time. Just like an omnipotent God is not bounded by the laws of physics, there's nothing to support the idea that an omnipotent being is somehow limited by the laws of logic. I think the mind of God exists as in reality in every possible way imaginable ALL at the same time including nothingness.

If you believe that giving is all you're meant for, than it essentially keeps you from just reaching out. I mean, I understand caution. But then there's also being stuck by your own assertion, which can't ever be that good.. I'm stuck with seeing both sides and it makes me seem like I'm equivocating. I'm not. I just can't "get inside peoples heads" Not if they don't want me to..
