Do you guys get that this is merely METAPHOR??
When we refer to God as a "He" the intention is not to say God in His essence
is a He. God is neither a He nor a She. He is beyond all
distinction or quality. Nothing can be said about His essence.
But when talking about how He reflects Himself through His creation
, which is the emanation of His essence into particular
is where we begin to refer to Him as a "He" relative to the creation, which is a "she" - and hence, the popular expression "MOTHER nature"...Nature is
the expression - the form -, and so we call it a 'she'.
This is all metaphysical language. We can't even talk about God as He is in Himself, because that would give us no form of relationship with Him. In
order to establish a relationship between man and God, we look to nature - the form - , the created realm, and probe its inner dynamics to derive a
logical system in which we can know something about Gods intention
for man, and so learn in what ways we can relate with Him.
In creational terms, i.e. in normative thinking, metaphysics teaches us how man can relate to God WITHIN creation. Were merely following the dynamic
interplay of forces and energies.
