She sat at the lunch table, a golden god from head to foot, laughing and tossing her hair. I tried not to toss my lunch as I sat on the opposite side of the cafeteria, handing my extra milk to Sam. He took it without a word and continued plowing his lunch into his mouth. “Attractive…”

I take a bow for You. I confess my sins to You. You know my thoughts and feelings, and know when they displease You.
By asavas URL on 06.21.2016
Oh the gods. How people worship them, praise them, allow them to account for their sins and achievements. The idea of a god is so appealing, so inviting. Who doesn’t want to believe there is some all knowing being who will condone the things you believe and condemn the things you disdain. An entity that need never be questioned, analyzed or challenged. The authoritarian parent whose only reason need be; because I said so. But it isn’t all bad, it is a way to believe in something larger than yourself. Although if you just look around it shouldn’t be hard to see that everything we are a part of is larger than ourselves. No need for a special reward in the next life if we cherish and do our best in this one.

The Greeks worshiped gods and goddesses who were also called deitys.

Deitys was a different name for a god or goddesses.
Greeks worshiped deitys with food and offerings of gold and silver. For things like blessing over a child or to help in a war.

She walked along the fresh crust of the Earth before we even knew she was there. She gracefully swayed, cracking the thunder with each step she took, lightning pouring from her eyes. She brought the rain onto the ground with a force, her power omnipotent.

“The deities have blessed me this fine morning!” crowed Louisa. “They have affirmed my life and happiness by allowing me to grace this earth for another year! And, if fortune and love permits it, they shall continue to smile upon me as I push through the mundane elements of my existence to find greater enlightenment and glory!”
“Yeah, yeah, Happy Birthday to you,” grumbled her husband. “Now are you going to eat some cake or what?”

Her laughter hung in the air like dandelion spores on a warm summer breeze. Hair, the color of sunflowers, seemed to float in the grass around her. A summer goddess, the mother Earth–I was in love.

Godlike….I think. So many people see themselves as a deity and what IS one anyway? Perhaps we should all see ourselves this way as life really is nothing but an illusion. Why not elude yourself in to thinking you’re a God?!

I believe in one. Sometimes, I feel as though I’m the only human being in NYC that does.
But I feel God. Know there is God. See God’s presence in the world in good ways. Of course, I’ve also met humans who think of themselves as deities. In fact, there’s one running for president right now. We should all bow to him and accept his iron-fisted rule and his proclamations about what is right and wrong, who is good and bad. There is no rhyme or reason to this deity’s commands or pronouncements; whatever feels right at the time is apparently the bible he hands us and expects us to live by. He himself lives by none of the rules he drafts; if he did, then he wouldn’t be drafting rules in the first place. “I don’t like you. You’re toast.” That’s pretty much how this one operates. If you worship at his altar, the best you can hope for is not thanks, but another day of freedom. If you don’t, he’ll look for ways to ruin you, destroy you, put you down, curse you, ridicule your faults or create faults you don’t really have. This is more bully than deity; more gad than God. But being worshipped more each day than any real God. And therein lies the end.

G-d is the all powerful. The One we can worship. Do we need something to represent Him. Sometimes I think yes, but in reality, I know we do not.

A true deity will guide and protect. A true deity is made by belief. A person’s belief can produce any body, any place, any thing into being. That is how writing and art work. They create deities.

A graduate advisor is not a deity. Yet a graduate advisor controls a graduate student’s entire world. So to the graduate student, the advisor is a deity that crushes them bit by bit until there is nothing left. Nothing worth doing. Nothing worth having. Just nothing.

When I was younger, I swore I’d always believe. I don’t mean as a child; I mean as a teen. I found my gods and I swore that unlike all the other teen girls who suddenly dressed in heavy black and prayed to the Goddess every full moon, I would never let it go. Naturally, I did.

Suman always wondered where do people go after they die and more importantly why do people die?
She had gotten so many different answers from everyone around her in all these years. The superstitious world that she was being brought up in was the kind where she was surrounded by people forever instilling fears of different sorts in her mind. A black cat crossing your path means bad luck. You should never give salt bottle or knife to another person hand to hand and so on. To the extent that when her dear neighbour and soul sister Aishdidi was to get married to a man, she was first made to marry a tree in the belief that her first marriage was not destined to last.
At school too, different versions of different superstitions prevailed. For example, the first page of every notebook was to be always kept blank if you wanted to score well. One’s name should never be written with certain colours and many more.
“Mom, I know why Amma died.” Suman sobbed as she returned home from school one afternoon.
“Why” Radha asked.
“Because I misspelled the word Deity to be Diety when I wrote an essay at school talking about Amma and how she feels one with the deity at some moments. My friends told me so Mom. I feel so terrible.”
Radha could only hope and pray that this would result into Suman learning spellings more accurately from now on and one day she would be mature enough to not let superstitions come in her way of living, loving and progressing.

Everybody believes in deity but nobody believes in being human. Everybody spends thousands of money on deities but nobody wants to spend a penny to help others. This feeling that deity will solve your problems needs to go.
