Tell us about your idea of what "God" is

Mythological.

not all religions have this concept

Karma-one simple little word that puts into place a universal system of justice-in other words-you reap what you sow-you get what you put out-do good and you'l receive good do bad and you'l receive bad-every action has an equel reaction-simple

there are 3 aspects of God;
1-Brahman-its the energy of the Lord,an impersonal aspect that pervades the whole universe-it is the effulgence that emenates from the supreme Lord

2-Paramatma-its the localized aspect of the Lord-God exists inside the hearts of every living entity and also within every atom-yogis that meditate on the heart can find God inside them-also Jesus said"the kingdom of God is inside you and all around you"but most christians probly dont understand that

3-Bhagavan-The Supreme Personality of God-it is the Person of God Himself-out of the 3 aspects that can be realized Bhagavan is the highest realization-everything flows from Him-He is the embodiement of pure transcendental love-He is unlimited and has an inummerable amount of forms and names-this whole cosmos is just a mere fragmental portion of His energys-He is Supreme in every way and transcendental to the modes of material nature-He is the creator,maintainer and destroyer of the universe-He is the supreme freind of all living entitys and is impartial to all-He is the cause of all causes and the source of everything-He is the original,primal,all loving -all powerfull-all attractive- embodyment of truth ,joy and consioussness-eternal supreme loving father
out of all the names that He is known-i like Krishna

Still. It is written: "do not Kum mir". Who such KumMir??
Now many think that Kum Mir - a star from the television screen or the singer from business show.
The word consists of two parts Kum (relative) and Mir (Universe). The general ( Universe ) relative.
Them did of a tree, from a stone. They had the original face . See on God - Kum Mir and making a sacrifice . The person activated genetic memory. Recollected how correctly to continue a family tree.
Therefore Christians vandals destroyed them.

I believe that anything is possible and nobody knows the truth, nobody possibly can as the concept of god is unprovable. We each have our own truth which is fine. Whatever makes your life better and more peaceful.

I choose to believe that everything living - people, animals, nature, etc - have some type of spirit/soul/energy which together make up something divine/higher power/god/ess/title of your choice.

To me there are as many versions of "God" as there are people who believe in "God". And they ALL think they've got it right. Strangely enough, (or not) these versions of "God" seem to reflect the personalities and needs of the believers.

One of my favourite quotes:
"You know you have created God in your own image when God hates all the same people you do" -Anne Lamott.

Kummir (the Ukrainian language) - the General relative . The father of the nation .
Stone \ wooden statue .
