    Spoken like a latent panentheist/trickster type...

[see my Ruland quote below ...  then ponder what numinous fun it is to
believe in a Godhead which/who is/are Multiple Sentience/Personality! All the
"proof(s)" needed is in the Cosmos Itself, hehe, ... and all around us in the world
at large...]

_NADA BRAHMA_ < Sanskrit >  "sound = Godhead"

"You breathe redemption, motive, power, You're elemental, super-collider
yeah tenn0!, You are air and earth, fire and ocean, You are Word, You are
tenn0 tenn0!" --- mortal - "tenn0"

_LILA_  < Sanskrit >
    1. the universe is what happens when God wants to play -
Divine Play - the play of the Divine in its Cosmic Dance, whimsy -  like a
child playing alone God the Cosmic Dancer - whose routine is all creatures and
all worlds - the Cosmos flows - a world from the tireless unending resistless
stream of God's energy that _is_ Lila
    2. joyous exercise of spontaneity involved in the art of creation this is
Lila

"A constellation is basially a conical chunk of stars with the apex at Earth

with an arbitrary space angle." - Andreas Johansson

    "...divine chaos ...rumors of chaos have been known to enhance the
...vision.... for the godhead manifests no more of its reality than the limited
grammar of each person's imagination and conceptual system can handle. A second
advantage is suggested by William James in _Varieties of Religious Experience_.
James affirms the possibilty of many gods, mostly because he takes seriously
his multiverse theory of personal monads, each one of us experiencing a
unique... revelation. An orderly monistic and monotheistic system, he fears, might
succumb to a craving for logical coherence, and trim away some of the mystery,
rich indeterminancy, and tragic ambiguity in a complete numinous experience.
For some temperaments, the ambivalent gentleness and savagery of fate can be
imagined effectively in a godhead split into personified attributes, sometimes
at war, sometimes in shifting alliance." - Vernon Ruland, _Eight Sacred
Horizons: The Religious Imagination East and West_

"We bow to the _satvika_ Shiva
    Whose _angika_ is the body
        Whose _vachika_ is the entire language
Whose _aharya_ is the moon and the stars"
