Have you ever met your god(s)?

    As a secular humanist who has an absence of belief (atheism), the question is fallacious because it presumes that 1) there is/are a god/gods, and that 2) such a god would be accessible to be met.

    This said, there is enormous beauty in the human spirit, raw, powerful emotion in art, and a capacity for creativity that is unyielding, but also a capacity for tremendous horror. This realization is one of the stark realities of humanity, and is, perhaps, the best way to consider the question; it is not one about god/gods, but instead about action, motivation, practise.

    I am a practicing Roman Catholic who is involved in Spiritual Direction, the Charismatic Renewal, Bible Study and meditation.
    I have indeed experienced Jesus at the very core of my being through meditation and entering the sad and sinful part of my life.
    I have also experienced God as a healing parent which transformed my life.
    Have I met God – I have certainly met a deep experience which Jesus / God gave me,
    Shalom Fr Mike Shaw

    I meet God everyday when I admire His creation and see I glimpses of Him in the people around me. I see Jesus in the lives he transforms.

    I am an athiest. My life is full. I think, read, laugh, cry, love, walk, observe. I try to be good and to do good. Is there more?

    I am surrounded by the Creator/Mother Earth when I am outside. The Creator (or God) is not in a specific building. She is in the trees, in the grass, in rocks, in water, in people who choose to accept her presence, instead of separting or hiding themselves in buildings and coulding their monds with technology. She is omnipresent when you clear your mind from modern technology.
