Brief and simplified discernment to elaborate and solve or resolve the nature God between theist and non-theist:For non-theist, God is experienced, philosophized, and described as the Essence, Nature, and Ground of Being or simply Ground of Being. And through words such as "Luminous Mind", "Luminous State of Being", and "Ground of Being". And God or Ground of Being is sustained by the Essence, Nature, and Ground of Nature or All That Exist and Ever Exist. And is the reason for expression such as "See God in Everything", "God is in Everything", "See The Divine in Everything", The Divine is in Everything".
While for theist, God is experienced, theologized, and described such as "Infinite Light Being", "Infinte Love Being", and "Christ Consciousness".
However, even the experience varied and description are different, they actually are experience and description of same dynamic existence of infinite potentialities of possibilities. A simple way of saying is if God is defined as the Ground of Being or vice versa, then both non-theist and theist are of same Ground of Being or God. Another way of saying is even non-theist and theist experience the same God or Ground of Being, their experience and expression varied due not only to they experienced of infinite potentialities of possibilities. Rather also due to back ground, culture, intellect, knowledge, language, and among other factors. And as such, both non-theist and theist have or share the same God or Ground of Being. A simple way of saying is non-theist does have God and theist does have Ground of Being.
And is now becoming more and more obvious due such as more are experiencing or having transcendence experience such as OBE and NDE. Another way of saying is individual and collective in another or different group or community experience can help solve life mysteries as well as build commin ground and advance the common and greater good. For example, theist such as Westerner experience God in different ways through millenniums social, cultural, and traditional practices. However, as more Westerner practices and or had transcendence experience, in particularly NDE, the differences bethween theist and non-theist are becoming same rather than causes for such as tribalism, divisiveness, alienation, fear, mistrust, conflicts, hatred, wars, injustice, and suffering.
And as such, are great causes, reasons, and opportunities to inspire, aspire, collaborate, co-exist on common ground, and solution to advance the common and greater good.
