if u believe in a creator...how do u view them?
If there was a creator: Unconscious, impersonal, creative force of some sort that is neither involved in its creation nor has the ability to do such.
Some suggest meditation, others prayer, others still LSD.
Perhaps these methods might allow a person to view the creator.
Or IMAGINE the creator.
Yes - why not.
What bugs me is all these folks who think they really know just from reading some book, or from what they've been told.
The danger is interpretting a PRIMED imagined view of God as what God actually [is], and then creating some sort of belief on such a premise. Like every mystical religion ever created.
There is a huge difference between vision and formulation of belief systems based on it. Actually, IMHO these belief systems may be one of the main barriers to such vision.
i feel that god is all. there is nothing that exists or can exist that is not got. god is not male or female, but both. god is balance in all things, 'good' and 'evil', 'love' and hate', knowledge and ignorance. he's not just and entity, but action and reaction. all for the sake of learning. evil is only an absence of god, a loss of balance, a stoppage of learning. hm. and stuff like that.
I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong.
You are God.
I know you are, but what am I?
I believe in God like a blind man believes in the sun; not because he can see him, but because he feels him.
I believe there is a supreme being. What or who I dont kno. I just dont believe there is a way to classify them...
I believe God is creativity itself (and Love itself, and Truth itself, and Wisdom, Compassion (Charity), Life, Consciousness, Reality, Bliss (or Joy), Peace, Mercy, Mystery, and of course, Unity (One-ness) itself).
I believe God expresses himself/herself through all of these "things" in the same way that we humans express ourselves through words, sounds, facial expressions, body language, touch, etc.
I believe Creativity itself is the Creator.
Oh yeah, one more very important thing . . .
I believe that God is not limited to just these things, just these attributes. But, these are essential and really should be considered whenever you speak of God.
The question is whether you would feel Him if you were not associated with the concept God.
Would you feel God if you had not been introduced to The concept prior or had religion/God primed into your psyche? I hypothesize that you would not, therefore THIS feeling is not substantial.
