Hinduism has many Gods/Goddesses of various ilk. Brahma is the head Dude — of course, but Vishnu and his wife Lakshmi as well as Shiva and his wife Parvati who incarnates as Kali and Durga give those who follow this religion ‘options’. I have loved Kali and Durga for their ability to use their Power and their Anger to clear away that which must go.
Buddhism as well — there are many ‘enlightened’ ones to embrace and learn from. I have a Green Tara statue on my altar — in her ‘Green’ form she is a guide to enlightenment and abundance. She is a Bodhisattva — one who has become enlightened & broken the wheel of reincarnation and karma. They call Tara — in all her 21 forms — Mother of The Buddhas.
I love the feminine allowed in those traditions. Small bits — peeks at a Divinity that is not an Old White Guy With Beard. :)
Humans make The Divine small. He or She — This or That. If you are going to believe someone/thing put together The WHOLE Universe — y’all need to start thinking BIG. WAY BIG. And understand — He/She/They do not make mistakes. We are all here — just as we are meant to be — by design. On purpose. Loved and Wanted By The Creator of Said Universe — We are Just Perfect. Absolutely Perfect. Every Bloody One of Us.
One day — when this experiment is done — I think a lot of people are going to be quite disappointed I didn’t end up in hell. ;)
You know hell Jim? Where all the drinks are served neat — because there are no ice cubes. ;)
