...that there is something that transcends our individual human consciousness, that is more than the universal unconscious. I believe there is a sentient, conscious, self-aware, creative impulse inclusive of but infinitely surpassing our human creativity. I choose to call that transcendent something God. I believe that human beings can commune with God if they choose. Because of my heritage as an American Protestant, I sometimes choose to use the myths and metaphors of the teachings of Jesus and the traditions of Christianity to facilitate my communion with God.
