WHAT IS GOD RATHER WHO IS GOD?

We all are divided by not just Our Nationalities but we are divided by the respective GOD We Worship or the Religion We Practice!

We are taught to follow a religion! We are told to believe in a GOD that our forefathers have believed in yet we have never been able to determine WHAT IS GOD RATHER WHO IS GOD.. Is Our GOD is the GOD that our forefathers have believed in or the definition of GOD has also changed with TIME!

Are we more in touch with our GOD or are we as distant as possible? Do we only think of GOD when our world's turned upside down? Or we think of him / her (Who Says GOD can not be a Woman) everyday?

And how do we define GOD? Who Is GOD?

  • Oct 15 2012: Rather than a personified God, think of god-ness - the essence of being-ness, or the quality of be-ing.
    God-ness is the statement "THIS IS" which answers the dual question, "to be or not be?"
    "THIS IS" (the Big Bang) is the explosion of energy within which we and the universe exist. As this explosive energy cools and gels, self-awareness emerges, expressing the essence of be-ing-ness - to know that we are.
    Consciousness is the expression of this self-awareness.
    When we wonder "what am I?" we're expressing god-ness.
    As Joseph Campbell might have put it, we are the eyes and ears of the divine, that it might experience life.
