Today's question is a variation of another that has been asked of me many times. I will admit, thsi version of the question is a bit more educated then what has been asked of me. lol...
"Do you find yourself more polytheist (the worship or belief in more then one God/Goddess), pantheist (God is everything and everything is God … the world is either identical with God or in some way a self-expression of his nature), or agnostic (a. One who believes that it is impossible to know whether there is a God. b. One who is skeptical about the existence of God but does not profess true atheism)?"
I identify with none of these, because I am a panentheist. There's a subtle difference between my belief and that of pantheists. Pantheists say that "all is God and God is all", whereas I say "all is in God and God is in all". In panentheism, God is both within this world and beyond it. I also have strong leanings toward gnosticism, particularly the philosophies behind the possible 'God-spark' and our endless quest to get back into the Whole of God.

I am not sure where I fall in this mix. Maybe a combination of all, or maybe there is another term out there where I fall. I believe that we are all one in the God and Goddess and that they are in all aspects of our lives and being. We are all part of them. I am not really sure how to explain the rest of the gods and goddesses... of where my belief falls into the mix. I feel that we are all part of the God and Goddess... All of the other Gods and Goddesses are all, like us, parts of the God and Goddess. they are names of the various personalities, the various talents and duties of our God and Goddess. Does that make sense?
