Thread Name: BS: If there is a God why is he hiding?
Subject: RE: BS: If there is a God why is he hiding?
Allen Watts recalls an old Hindu story says that at first God was all. But in the passing eons of time He grew lonely, and decided to play a hiding game. He hid himself in the forms he created as stars, planets, trees, animals and men. He hid himself so well that He could no longer find Himself, and in time men knew only the guise of their own existence.
But it is still the quest of each man to understand that he is an individual manifestation of the Creator, and that everything else is as well.
