Passage of the Day: Giving up the Idea That God is a Person

“You can hold on to the security of a concept of God as a person, a kindly old man in the sky who loves you, and you will get through your life just fine. You will feel loved all your life just fine. You will be loved all your life, and you will love God. And you will be safe. But there will be no spiritual growth. Or you can take the risk of letting go of all of that and go on a mystical path, not knowing where it will lead. I wasn’t giving up on God. I was giving up the notion of God as a person-even if she was now female to me-to allow the possibility for spiritual growth. It was one of the most important decisions of my spiritual life, perhaps the most important. “
