For me, God is the supreme power or authority that loves us as his children and take care of us. He is loving sharing, forgiving, protector, destroyer, listener, giver, producer, fighter, understanding, jealous, sacrificer, ruler, king, redeemer, etc. We all worship God be it in any form, shape, size, ways but our ultimate goal is to honour him.
Let us ask ourself, why do we go to the temple or mosque or church or place of worship or even pray in our house for everything. We put forward our requests for the house, food to eat, financial help, good education, better facilities, We ask pardon for our and our beloved family members for the wrong they do knowingly or unknowingly, we pray to give us daily needs, good health, job, etc, We pray when there is a flood, droughts, earthquakes, wars, disputes, losses, accidents, pandemics, etc so that it passes away, we visit to give thanks for all the favour and blessing received like financial help, achievements, good health, etc. For each and everything, we would like GOD to be with us.
So when we talk about GOD in an expanded form, we can say that he is like the air that surrounds us, the light that brightens our life, like the darkness that tells us that we need to be patient, like water that gives life to everything, like the fire that destroys if it catches and purifies that is passed through it, like the earth that nurtures everything that falls on it, like the perfume that spreads fragrances everywhere without our knowledge, like food that provides nutrients and energy to our body, like the wifi that helps us to be connected without knowing from where it comes and where it goes but we are contact 24x7, like a spy that watches our every moves without our knowledge and knows everything about us.
