It's time to redefine God. It's not a he, excluding all females. It's not a she, excluding all males. It's all. Everything. From every individual star to the gum on the bottom of your shoe.
It's time to stop Praying for Action from this God. Rather, we should act. WE are God. Therefore we are collectively everywhere and everything. We are all knowing. We are all loving. Those that aren't simply exist to remind us what love is.
It's time to stop thinking of one God being better than the others. God is not one god. It is everything. It may take DIFFERENT forms, but not one better than another.
It's time to stop thinking of one PERSON as being better than the others. The God of our ancestors created separation: us from God, and us from each other. But we are all one. WE are God.
It's time to consider every human, every animal, every aspect of this world as our equal. Women are not better than men, men are not better than animals, animals are not better than trees. All are required to make the world what it is, and all are deserving of equal awe and reverence.
It's time to rethink who YOU are. You are not insignificant. You are not unwanted. You are not alone.
You are GOD.
You. Are. Perfect.
