People all have different views on God. Even in a specific religion, they can have multiple views on what a 'god' is, and some don't believe it.
Those who are skeptic of God, stay with me.
God is viewed as many different things, a Warrior, a pacifist, a tyrant, a hippie, an old man, a young man, a woman, a dragon, a child, a beast, a two-headed giant, a flying creature, the list goes on and on.
But (if you are skeptic of God, just pretend for a moment) if God is one 'being' why do people see him differently? Or why do people think that there are more than one god? (like the Greeks did).
In my point of view, God is a being of pure consciousness and energy. Picture a cloud of white or gold mist that covers the Universe. Obviously, a deity with no form is powerful enough to change his shape, so he does.
I also believe that the Universe runs on 'Male and Female' energy (there is nothing sexist about these energies). Om-Father (God) is the male polarity and the Mother Goddess (Azna) is the female polarity. Yin and Yang was a prime example of this energy.
Now, if you missed my previous posts, I'll give you a brief understanding of Male and Female Energies.
Male: Male energy is focused, determined and doesn't leave room for creativity. It is 'By-the-Book'
Female: Female Energy is creative, free thinking and artistic. This energy rarely follows the directions because it dampens one's creativity.
Note: Male and Female energy is inside both genders. If a man is incredibly right-brained (where the female energy resided) it doesn't make him 'girly' or anything like that. It isn't what makes the gender, it is an energy.
If a man feels more creative or a woman feels more by-the-book, don't worry about it. Embrace it.
Why do People View God as Female, but not as Mother God?
Sadly, this is mostly because of the great war on genders. Yes, there are some people who claim to have seen God as a woman, this is because of two reasons.
1. God came to them in a form that they would be more at peace with.
2. Mother God came to them, but didn't tell them that she was Mother God (because they may not have asked)
Yes, part of God's energy is female, and the other half is male. Life/spirit can not be without both polarities.
What Exactly do the Male and Female Energies have to do with Physical Genders?
Very little. A man being incredibly right brained (or female energetic) doesn't make him homosexual, it makes him right brained. There is nothing to be ashamed of if you are more 'opposite gender energy' because it has very little to do with it.
Why did the Ancients Have More Gods?
Well, I can't speak for every culture, but the Greeks (remember, this isn't proven, but I chose to believe it) had their gods, Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Aries, Apollo, Aphrodite, etc, were all real beings. Remember an earlier post about the Nephilim? Well this is them. They came to earth and were immortal (humans are not immortal) they were very strong, giants, and some had control over elements (lightning, the oceans...). This is clearly a non human race.
There is more to come, but as for right now, Namaste!
