God /Brahman/Almighty/Allah … [Supreme Being]

“As water when congealed becomes ice, so the visible form of the Almighty is the materialized manifestation of the all-pervading formless Brahman. It may be called, in fact, Sat-chit-ânanda solidified. As the ice, being part and parcel of the water, remains in the water for a time and afterwards melts in it, so the Personal God is part and parcel of the Impersonal. He rises from the Impersonal, remains there, and ultimately merges into it and disappears.” – Ramakrishna Paramhansa

[1] While a bell is being rung, the repeated ding-dongs can be distinguished one from the other, but when we stop ringing, then an indistinguishable sound only remains audible. We can easily distinguish one note from the other, as if each distinct note had a certain shape; but the continued and unbroken sound when the ding-dongs have ceased is indistinguishable, as if formless. Like the sound of the bell, God is both with and without form. – Ramakrishna Paramhansa

[2] As at one time I am clothed, and at another time naked, so Brahman is at one time with attributes and at another without. – Ramakrishna Paramhansa

“God as Heavenly Father [1] The Bible reveals God as the Lord of the universe and calls Him “Father” in both Old and New Testaments. He is the Father and Lord of creation.

James describes Him as “the Father of the lights.” He created the stars
as well as the angels. The Old Testament names angels as “the sons of
God” (benai elohim). Paul says that every family under heaven
is named or set aside for Him (Eph. 3:15). We all need a caring human
father (or an equivalent) as early as possible in our lives to help us
understand what God the Father is like as a Person.”

[2] ” the Psalmist (10:14) praises God as a loving Father: Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation.” Hosea writes (14:3) that the fatherless find mercy in Him. God is described in Psalm 10:14 as the one who helps the fatherless. King David says, “When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.” (Psalm 27:10). The Lord God is more than willing to help make up for absent fathers. Surely the most wonderful aspect of being a Christi an is that we all have a unique relationship with the Creator of the universe, the God and Father of Jesus, the Living Spirit who is Lord of all history. Through faith in Jesus each one us may call God “Abba”. (Abba is the Hebrew intimate word for “daddy.”)” Source:GOD OUR FATHERby Lambert Dolphin and David Sacarelos

“Always remember.that the Great Mystery is good; evil can come only from ourselves!”
–Grandmother of Charles Eastman. SANTEE SIOUX

The Great Mystery is love, good and principle. He is a guiding Father. He doesn’t play games. He knows only how to love. Sometimes, when
things go wrong, we blame Him or others. Usually, if we are honest, we
can see how decisions or things done in the past put us in a position
to be hurt. It comes back to us. When this happens, it is not something
the Creator caused, but something we, ourselves caused. Most of our
problems are of our own making. When this happens, we should correct
what we’ve done, ask the Great Spirit for forgiveness and pray for
guidance in the future.
