I think that we protect ourselves by creating safe images of God to stand in the place of a fearful unknown. Some concepts of “god” have kept us safe, but in doing so they have deprived us of the profound reality that sustains us.
Some very brave physicists like David Bohm, have opened up for us a new way of seeing God- without ever mentioning God. They sound very much like long familiar mystics. My offering in this post is a series of quotations from David Bohm and a few mystics. I leave it to you to draw your own conclusions about who/what “God” is and the implications your concept has for how we interact with one another in this universe.
