Ganesh

Post by stormofwind »

Somebody want me mediate with this?
to get greater insight.. I don't believe in this..
Just a higher power..
For me I don't like any these gods or deities.

I am not sure what your exact question is about Ganesh.
I am the Earth, The Sun and the Stars
And I am the also the Moon
I am all animal and birds,
And I am the outcast as well, and the thief
I am the low person of dreadful deeds,
And the great person of excellent deeds
I am Female. I am Male and I am Neuter.
- Devi

Ok. But what does that exactly have to do with Ganesh? Belief is not always a requirement.

Perhaps the gods are merely expressions of this higher pow. Have you read about Brahman?
I am the Earth, The Sun and the Stars
And I am the also the Moon
I am all animal and birds,
And I am the outcast as well, and the thief
I am the low person of dreadful deeds,
And the great person of excellent deeds
I am Female. I am Male and I am Neuter.

Just think about the historic fact that all indigenous cultures have recognized multiple god-forms. What is there in human nature that perceives deity(s)? Meditate on that. Some people picture deity as a diamond with many facets, or as a single apple seed holding thousands of apple trees within itself.

The way people depict a god-form like Ganesh tells you what they know about that god. Some images of Ganesh show an elephant reading a book - some show an elephant joyously dancing as light as a feather. What's the image telling us about Ganesh? Not that this god-form is an actual elephant but that he has the strength & power to overcome all obstacles like we'd see in an elephant in the wild. The image of an elephant reading a book says this god-form uses knowledge & not just brute strength. And the joyfully dancing elephant shows spiritual rejoicing as the source of the knowledge & strength to overcome obstacles. There are other ways to interpret them of course. I'm just using these as an example since you used it yourself.

It's not a requirement that Wiccans think alike. Witchcraft recognizes diversity.
