God is an interesting word for a lot of people. I, myself, had a hard time with it for a long time. I grew up in a spiritual home, but my mom was deeply rooted in the Christian tradition, with splashes of the yogic, all with the underlying current to just be kind to people. Peppered with her scientific mind, being a nurse, she always encouraged me to question my beliefs and think for myself. Church never really spoke to me. I liked the Bible stories and was glad I got them, canonically, but by the time I was 16, I wanted nothing more than to be Wiccan. I started reading about the nature-based religion, studying spells and casting them with my friends. It really spoke to me that God could have many names and morph to HELP you in whatever avenue you needed, combine the duality of the masculine and feminine and wasn't some angry man looking at us from the sky judging our every move, which is what I got in Church most of the time.
I think that's why the yogic tradition speaks to me so abundantly now. I love the duality of the nature of the spirituality of the yogic tradition; Shiva/Shakti, Radha/Krishna, even the asana practice, having the steady and sweet, which has been classically translated to masculine and feminine.
There is the larger question now, too, as the question of gender comes into play more frequently, what "masculine" and "feminine" even mean and I think that it's important to keep that issue at the fore and keep talking about it and asking those questions.
What's important to me, in terms of God, is that I think it's nice to know there's something, someone, somewhere, that is working for and with us, and not an angry man yelling at us to be better or do better. We're all working a little harder together to be better.
