I watched the documentary on "God is Love" and it was incredible!
But I have a question. I heard said:
1. God doesn't intervene in our lives because he cherishes free will (which means we can't blame him for causing bad things to happen in the world or to us).
2. If you open yourself up to God you're accepting the potential for a huge amount of suffering.
So how do you reconcile those two? Is God completely hands-off or is he intervening to teach us lessons through suffering?
Also - I think it's a little weird there's no mention of divine feminine up in here. It occurred to me that maybe the Holy Spirit has a feminine essence. Think of a butterfly or a gentle breeze, or that quote from Richard Rohr where he says the Holy Spirit is described in Genesis as a mother hen, flapping her wings over the earth to warm it. Jesus could easily be interpreted as having as many "feminine" qualities in him as masculine. So what's up with our dualistic it's a he? "She" feels wrong to me, but that's probably because of my nutso Protestant upbringing.
