There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.

Perhaps the nature of God is so complex and multifaceted
that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.

The moment you become miserly you are closed
to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things,
you have missed the target.

not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
