Should we change the definition of God?

9160  Should we change the definition of God? 20180307

I don’t know whether it is the right time to do so. As we all know, different cultures were given the definition of God from the very ancient beginning. And those definitions had been governing our thoughts since.

 And we have limited our imagination in two ways only. Either there is a God or Gods, or there is no God at all.

 We as a human being have not probed deeply into the question about what is God.

 While the Indians had the most colorful explanations about Gods, the Western people thought that God was singular and unique. But the ancient Chinese thought differently. They thought that God is “Heaven”, and heaven is not necessary perfect. However, the modern trends went into denying God. In some of the minds of nowadays people, God is negligible even if Gods do exist.

 There was a reason for this special thought.

 Seldom do modern people accept the doctrines from the ancient religious priests but they do not have a modern doctrine to guide themselves.

They do not know what to do and where to go. | If God is neglected, it meant only to neglect the old doctrine, which in the modern minds are somewhat unbelievable and absurd.

 The definition about God is not so important nowadays. In reality, it is a question of what to do and where to go actually. If we know what we are going to do and where we are going to go, that means, we had discovered what God needs to tell us.  

 All problems remain into one question, that is the purpose about life.

 We are a living life. Do we need to know what is the purpose of life? May be. Even if we do not know the purpose of life, we are still living and that a will in the minds of every thing to live on is very clear.  Even a little ant in the wild is trying desperately to live on, not to mention the flowers and plants.  

 So, it is not so important to worry about.

 But we as a human being had discovered another important point:  Consciousness.

 We need to be more conscious to live on. Those who are conscious will be happier, it is what some people believe.  Though the unconscious people could be still very happy also.

 It is only when sometimes we had discovered some or our fellow beings had lost the will to live on and were in a very unhappy situation, we will come to the thought about all this and the thought about consciousness is risen suddenly.  

 And some of us will suddenly turn themselves into angels to help people.

 What does that mean?

 It meant we had something built in our minds.

 We had a natural thought of what to do and where to go.

 And the minds of God or Heaven and the minds of human are the same.
