What do you call God?
A number of blind men came to an elephant. Someone told them that it was an elephant. The blind men asked, “What is the elephant like?” as they began to touch its body. One of them said, “It is like a pillar.” This blind man had only touched its leg. Another man said, “The elephant is like a husking basket.” This person had only touched its ears. Similarly, he who touched its trunk or its belly talked of it differently. In the same way, he who has seen the Lord in a particular way limits the Lord to that alone and thinks that He is nothing else.

God is known by many names – the Absolute, Jehovah, Brahma, Spirit, Divinity, the Divine, the Creator, and the Divine Architect being those commonly used in Aetherius Society teachings.
All the great religions worship the same God under different names – interpreting God in different ways, and focusing on different aspects of what God is.
What’s important though is not what we call it, but the love in our hearts, and the wisdom in our minds, which we put into active service to others in dedication to a higher principle.
Let’s cooperate together under one banner – service to others – and radiate light into a world in need!
