I believe in one Divine that is the intelligence behind creation--the center of it all. I see this being as having no gender or human form, but who's personality. characteristics are predominantly female. But alone, one being could not perform all that is within the universe, so the web began to be spun and other very strong spirits were created, they are apart of her, just as everything is. These are what I consider the pantheons and deities of all cultures. But these alone could still not keep up with all of creation. This is where nature spirits, daemon, angels, and the like come in. I think that all spiritual beings are viewed in the perspective of the various cultures therefore it seems like there. are thousands of different types, but when you study them, you see that there are uncanny resemblances.
Let's look at Saint Mary for example, Queen of the Heavens. Then look at Sumerian Astarte, Ishtar of Babylon, Hera of Greece, Venus of Rome, Isis of Egypt. The list goes on and on. To me these are all one in the same, being described through different archetypes.
Everything in the universe is interconnected because it all comes from the same energy source, therefore it is apart of that energy source. And that source is what some call God, Goddess, both, or another derivitave. All cultural views honor the same beings but perceive them differently. We aren't all right, nor all wrong. It is within our perspectives that we paint the picture of what we consider the Great Spirit and other higher beings to be. So it is our truth.
I feel closer to the Divine by looking within myself and connecting to nature.
