Yeah, that's kinda close. I am saying that (and I'm trying not to be very esoteric or 'out there') God IS flowing water, the force that pushes blood through the veins, moves a sperm towards an egg, a planet to spin, and on and on. That's what makes God a part of us and everything. To get close to God is to just feel the breath for example. To see the energy behind everything that keeps it moving, that makes us grow old, that's God. Which everyone is a physical part of with the conscience and awareness to actually see it. That's the fascinating thing and one thing that's hard to understand. We've been given the ability to look at God. Maybe God has turned the mirror on himself and uses human eyes to see it?
I think it's interesting that even in the Bible, it mentions that humans cannot comprehend God completely, yet much of the Bible is spent trying to humanize God, as merifuly, vengeful, loving, angry etc...all very human traits.
I am finding that Christianity (trinity) has been very biased (by mankind) and philosophies like Hinduism and Buddism are less dogmatic and more of a philosophy. (Not that I don't like Catholicism but) Hinduism, for example, has many "Gods" and they represent many different things in life and the various ways God exists. It isn't that one worships these Gods but God is so many different things to so many different people, God requires different ways to be described and looked at. For example, a woman is a wife to one person, a mother to another, a teacher at her job... She is only one person. God is many different things also and requires different meanings.
Mythology and storytelling and various Gods (for me) tell, in a much better way, what God is. Christianity seems to limit the story telling quite a bit.
