To me, God is a comforting presence, a warmth, a calmness.

To me God feels like.....something that I belong to, like "family", like something or someone who knows me intimately well..."home". Where I can be in hair curlers or be questionning and raging and sick inside and that something - never moves away from me. I may move, but God doesn't. Is something that is always there, mysterious sometimes, but "there".

God feels like the synonym for infinity to me. The neverending tale, the box with no sides, the dimensional thinking that is always exploding with new life, new thought, new creation. Complete and total pure energy. A life force with nothing else in it but - life.

My passageway to all that I do not know. My guide, and the one who nurtures the deepest parts of me where no one knows how to even approach me. That complete understanding that just "is" and needs no words for.

Where I begin and keep beginning...

"Who has put all this together? Or is there only one structure? Who has divided all this? Who has said I'm a Hindu or I'm a Muslim? Is it merely propaganda? Who created the division between countries? Thought? Or is it desire, the longing to be identified, to be safe?" - Jiddu Krishnamurti

What does God feel like - Hell I don't know! - but he and I will give it a go -

To me he lives inside us all - is the better feelings - kind thoughts - love to spread.

Holy Sprite - who other than our father would think of a helper at the moment of shear torture.

The wonder of our Father is just a feeling at times - then the power gets you to move your butt - it is impossible to avoid it - sometimes we think not for me God!

Actually I love him - want more of him as I greet each day - want to be a God millionaire each time I wake.

Feel him working among us as I write - she him - want him - on these boards .God knows what is best for us in the end. But sometimes I rant and say " Hell I want in on this decision!

Love is the feeling of God - painful though it is at times.

God Bless . Anam .

An overwhelming surge of love and kindness and compassion. An urging to reach out and hug someone when they are down, a quiet nudge of conscience, a peace within.

To me God is my counselor and my friend. He said he will never leave me or forsake me and that fills me with peace. He gave the greatest gift you can give and he asks so little in return.

He is the still small voice inside that speaks to me, even when I try to silence it to justify my actions. He is in the faces around me working to pull a teenage girl out of a mangled car when she's slipping from us. He's in the grimy face of my husband and his fellow volunteer fireman when they come back to the station from saving a neighbor's farm, their livlihood. He was in the innocent face of my colt born in the chilly April morning, his long eyelashes still dewy as he blinked up at me in wonder. He was in the tears running down the faces of the EMS, fire and police clearing the rubble at Ground Zero and in Oklahoma City. He is all that is good and right in this world and the fact that he loves me reduces me to tears.

God is a safe, warm, comforting feeling that envelopes you with peace.

It feels like the first time you see something from Mother Nature so beautiful it takes your breath away. Or the feeling that comes when you are so alone and desperate, you ask for God to comfort you and the sadness goes away.

I truelly believe this is when you are closest to God.

To me, God is the perfect friend, everything I would ask of a friend. He feels good. He feels safe. Warm. Powerful. Admirable. He brings joy.

He did much more than die for me. People die for me all the time- they have in Iraq. Throughout history people have martyr'd themselves for others. He was much more than a martyr.

In His death and resurrection He proved that my deepest fears- death, the unknown, evil, will be overcome and successfully defeated through Him. The resurrection left our world without His need to physically interfere anymore. Choices are ours.

Because of Him my life has purpose, meaning, goals. My job here is to make this a better place because I'm in it.

God is a good, safe feeling. He won't hurt.

God feels real to me. I know He is real. He is not into people pretending to be one way when they are in church and live their lives in a totally different way. He feels like true acceptance, true forgiveness, and unconditional love.

God is the center of all, of us... God is the uniting force of the universe. We all share this one central being.

What about Pagans and Druids? What are your thoughts?

God is my conscience. He is there when I feel alone and helps me though times when I feel like I can't go on. I have no idea how people could go through hard times with out him.

Thanks SFB! It feels good to be back. I love this thread. I just think other people's perceptions on this topic are fascinating.

Pagans and druids: I feel for them. Wish they could know deep inside what I do. But I'm not willing to go much deeper than that. I'm afraid to cross any lines. There's just too much I don't know.

"Lest ye be judged" type of thing.

When I was growing up I used to think that if heaven and being with God was as boring as sitting in church I wasn't so sure I wanted to go. I have been disappointed in the church for a long time and probably have been hurt the worst by people who were in the church.

But what I am finding out as an adult is that God is very real and very personal. I always believed that God sent Jesus to die for my sins but I never realized how personal that was for me. I just considered myself in on the package deal and that God had to accept me, kind of like a parent is suppose to accept their child whether they want to or not.

But God has been proving Himself to me in some amazing ways. He has been showing me just how personal He really is. I can't explain some of the things He is doing, but I can feel His hand touching my life.
