    Meaning is what we give words

    A Hindu story. A msan is listening to a guru lecture. The guru says 'God is in you and god is ineverything'. Full of bliss the man is walking down a road and sees an elephant running yowards him. He thinks to himself 'If god is in me and god is in the 3elphant I have nothing to fear!'.

    The elephant comes upon the man bellowing, grabs him with its trunk, and tosses the man aside.

    Bewildered the man asks the guru where he went wrong. The guru replied 'When the elephant bellowed it was god in the elephant telling the god in you to get out of the way, but you were not listening;.
    That is why God is always perceiving everything. The train DOES NOT EXIST if God is not perceiving it.

    You're right on the doorstep with your finger on the doorbell!
    I used to have a book of stories from India. You miss the ooint entirely.

    In Hindu tradition god is more a level of human awareness or conspicuousness. There is a saying and greeting, 'see the god in you' Not god of Christians but the godliness in all of us.
    .
    There is no separation between the world and God (Brahman) in Hindu belief. Unlike Abrahamic theology, it is the creative principle of Brahman that manifests rather than creates the world and everything in it.

    Brahman just exists and its existence itself creates the illusion of the world - according to Hindu Advita philosophy. We feel as if things other than Brahman exist. Howdy, DBT, do you remember me! Coming back after a long time.
