What is "God" to me

My current answer is I don't know what "God" is any more. At one time, I believed like everyone else in the dead closed concept of an Old Testament God that was an angry old man that wants his worshippers to fear and respect him. Then, there is the Fatherly figure of traditional Christianity, but this too, was not satisfying. Then, there is the God of physicists which is closer to the truth, E=mxcxc. "God" is all the energy and matter in the Universe, dark energy, dark matter, light, and normal matter, but this seems to diminish God because it doesn't take into account Consciousness. I know that God is Consciousness, but there is no way to quantitate or define what Consciousness is. I can only subjectively feel Consciousness. So, I am back to square one. I don't know what "God" is, but I know that I have Consciousness, and it is the best part of me.

This was my response to George Breed's question:
"What content comes to your mind when you hear the word God ?"

It doesn't matter. It's all in your mind.
 
Hello, John. Got your blog from George, the warrior.

God is a metaphor. It has whatever meaning anyone attaches to it. I like the God of Love taught by J.C.

God is goodness. Our ideas of goodness (like God) are various, but there is considerable commonality about it among the human race, which, if we acted upon, would certainly make the world a better place.

Life is good; promoting life is others is good for you, your health and happiness.

Your question led to my sermon. Hope it helps.
 
As for me... I haven't yet decided who or what God is. Only time will tell... I hope.
