Imagine, if you will, someone who has a Lamborghini or Maserati in
the garage but only uses it to go the few blocks to the grocery
That seems to be the approach some folks want to take where The Divine is concerned. Bear in mind, that if the universe is infinite, The Divine must by definition be as infinite as the universe.
And so, let's see what might be implied by that.
In politics and society in general, most of us know that a freedom for must include the same freedom for another, so that a Christian being allowed to distribute Bibles means that a Muslim would be free to distribute Korans. It's similar here. If The Divine is infinite, then we have to consider the implications. That includes the implication that we don't know the number of ways The Divine can be seen, and therefore we have no idea how many other paths are as valid as our own.
No matter how much I think I might know about The Divine, all I know is one small part of one small corner.
And here we'll explore that with a look at some writings which show what just some of that might mean.
