By God I don’t necessarily mean the typical Western idea of God (sitting in Heaven on a divine throne, Christ is his son etc.) If that’s what you think God is, fine, but I’m curious as to what some other ideas of God people have are.
I don’t think of God as a singluar entity in the universe, but sort of as a plane that humans interact with on a not-understood level. To me “God” is the interaction between beings that perpetuates itself, sort of a action-reaction thing.
Another idea I’ve heard that I found interesting is that this dimension (space-time) is an energy well, and that our “souls” leave our bodies and enter a higher-order stream, and that through doing good in this “energy-well”, we can help our souls get there. This is interesting to me because it raises ideas of how thought and energy intertwine. The person I heard this from tied in Christianity by saying that Christ understood this idea of the energy-well, but either lacked the technical terms to properly describe, or had his words misunderstood and recorded improperly. In this scenario Christ is a guide that helps you reach God, which would be the energy mass/stream.
Anyway, I’d like to hear everyone else’s non-orthodox ideas
