What if God is MORE than the stories we believe?

What kind of Love is God?


Not an all-consuming need or desire,
Not an all-absorbing cultic oneness,
God is not a unity built on conformity, but a union based on dynamic interactive intercourse–giving and receiving, receiving and giving, letting go and creating.

This new paradigm for God’ love is based on the paradigm shift which human love has taken in the past 40 years.

At one time love was a hierarchy of one Over the other, one using the other, one hovering over/protecting the other.  Alternatively, Love was viewed as an abandonment of self , the sacrifice of ego for the sake of the other.  Now we know that ego is as important as human spirit.  It is our uniqueness, our separateness while spirit is our oneness with all.

Love does not require the sacrifice of ego, only the discipline of ego so that it does not rule our lives and prevent us from experiencing the intercourse of giving and receiving, the intercourse of interactive oneness with another.

God is the kind of Love that holds back on its egoistic desire, makes room for other, gives no reason for attack and defense, finds strength in separateness and in union.  Above all, God is the Love that believes totally in our goodness and hopes fervently that we realize the goodness we are in every moment.

What kind of love are you?

  1. It thrills me to see the word “intercourse” used in such a sacred way. I will never understand how religion and physical intimacy became so separate.
