God Is Only As Big As Your Imagination
The subject of God is a fun one for me. I wanted to bring forth the perspective that God is only as big as your imagination.
Take a lot of religions for instance. For a lot of religions they depict God as a physical entity that has powers over them. For a lot of religious people the idea of a personal, physical God is something that is tangible and easily synthesized by their consciousness. Because of this you see figures and art that depict a physical, recognizable God. It is a direct representation of their imagination.
For the more scientific, rational crowd (that are non-atheists) their idea of God is a much more abstract and universal standpoint. The idea of God being a person seems much too limiting for God. This is simply because they are able to imagine God at a much different level. Their paradigm is such that a physical God would break down far too many realities and views that they have experienced and built up throughout their lifetime.
Then we can travel back to more ancient times and we have Greek Gods that seem to be actually intervening with people in the physical. What's all this about? Why is it that their Gods are hanging out with them and doing cool stuff while the Gods of this day and age aren't hanging out with us?
I obviously have my own opinions on this but my point is more so that people's consciousness and level of understanding is what really defines their God. I think the more you grow the closer you come to your understanding of what God truly is or is not. As you grow in consciousness and dimension you become more capable of grasping the more deeper concepts of God and are able to put more pieces together to built a much more vibrant description of God.Filed under: Spiritual, God
