ON HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE ‘GOD’ WORD
Q. Do you believe that you are the centre of the universe?
A. Assuming you say “No” then the single Power, the life-force or Chi, the all that isn’t you, is the Whole, Mystery or what some call God, Allah etc.
All of its many powers, the water cycle, human thought etc seem to many to be tributaries that lead back to the single Ocean, the Oneness, the Infinite – the Whole – or what some call God.
The experiences of the Whole, with the ego quietened, are more important than labels.
If labels like ‘God’ are problematic use ‘the Mysterious Whole’ or ‘Ultimate Reality’ as an alternative.
