If I may, I would suggest getting your GED and looking for a job that you enjoy a bit more. Anything to improve your quality of life will work wonders on your mental health, and might help you to pursue this question from a different state of mind.

If a god exists, then I think the idea that he doesn't care enough to talk to you would take a backseat to the bigger picture that he cared enough to create you.

I sort of unbound in that way as well shadow. But, out of respect for life and humanity i bind myself by the virtue of empathy and compassion. Empathy because i know what it is like to be harmed, and compassion to not wish it upon my fellow man. Those simple truths are godless and are universal. In the end, for humanity to prevail we must all recognise these things as vital to our evolution to a higher state of existence and our survival as a species.

I understand this, but at the moment it seems pointless knowing that humans only live a short time and even near the age of death we are but children still. We don't have the ability to achieve a higher evolution unless a culture dominated and forced all to obey.  Which reminds me of a movie I think is coming out. I think they all have to take a pill or something and makes the people dull and logical and unable to express emotions.

So unless everyone took a magic pill to make them purely logical and emotionless. I doubt our species will evolve to a higher state of existence. Unless maybe if we go cyborg and make robot bodies. At any rate it would still be pointless for me or you since we would be dead long before either came into being.

So many negative thoughts in me, its good that God exist or else the world would have another horrible person to add to the collection.
Comfort of the Lord, comforted by God.
If nothing existed but the Source and the Source - Created everything - Is the Creation from the Source? - If the Creation can behold intelligence - Then does the Source also have intelligence? - After all - The Source was far more than its Creation.

God and reality are what your current state of mind represents.
All the gods are legend that you can use to base tour lifestyle around
You will never see a God In the phsyical realm because they break the bounds of reality by existing.(therefor they exist in the conscious)
Their is multiple gods, many more deities, but only one creator.
Another thing to notice is we are also gods our selves, by that I mean we have full control over our wills, but our past lives give you innate traits, aspirations, or they can give you side tracked beliefs that you must realize as the wrong path in life.

The creator is the force that allows existence.
Gods govern the rules life must follow to exist.
Deities are humans with godlike qualities.

We can be creators too, lucid dream and that's apparent.
When your eyes are open its the physical
When your eyes are closed its the etheral
If you act the part reality will chase you
Be the being you wish and the choices will tighten the knot of thought to become your new conscious state.

That distinction between gods and deities most likely exists only in yor paradigm; in plain English, there is no distinction. Referring to something as a god may more strongly connotate a religious relationship, but that's all.

My stance on gods is the will nature provides in sustaining our lives.

Think if everyone used chi,
Think if we all became harmonized and balanced with our inner selves.
Now we have to remember yin and yang. How it applies to life and death,
and even further into light and dark/good and evil.
 The themes in culture all try and mimic the same goals.
Attaining perfection.
But on earth perfection is impossible because yin and yang always
have different amounts of prevalence acrossed the world.
But In the higher and lower realms you can find them in abundance.
Explain how we as a human race can decline spiritually, when spirituality
is the key ingredient in accepting what and who we are rather than
Fighting it and ignoring it. It lets shamans be shamans, allows mages to become
Sages. And the rich to become slaves and the poor to become rich. The basis of
Energy of all shapes and sizes is in an essence the same as the collective conscious.
All in the same just a different name and brain.
Knowing religious themes, and the similarities. Even in esoteric philosophy it all shares
The same thing. Speaking of a heaven, a higher place, altered states of concious.
Is prolonged use of meditation really going to give you glimpses of an afterlife,
Or is it all just a dream you have yet to wake up from?
When your eyes are open its the physical
When your eyes are closed its the etheral
If you act the part reality will chase you
Be the being you wish and the choices will tighten the knot of thought to become your new conscious state.

Deity comes from the Latin 'dei' which translates into English as 'god' and 'the Creator' is an aspect of the main God which governs over many gods, or its role in the cosmic and spiritual structure is as creator rather than destroyer or bringer of love.

Your reality is only spirit.
Therefore you are in a state of grace forever."

The whole topic of this thread is moot to me because I have personally experienced proof of God/dess, the great lodge in action, and gained a few siddhis. I wish everyone else was that lucky.

Thus we must ask! Why are we not all that lucky? Why will my brothers and sisters never be given the eye opening realization that God exist? Why are some people lucky and everyone else seem completely abandoned?

Hard work and a willingness to face our darkest desires and fears yet still be able to rise from the death and torment of a fractured reality. I also believe it comes down to not fearing a lack of faith for true clarity. There is also the common mishap of interpreting our idea of divinity as the only true form instead of realizing deity, being externally real or internally perceived, may be different for others.
