Let’s step out of the box of myth and fables for a moment and break it down metaphysically
Think Of God as the source of the cosmos right
Now the source emits its creative and destructive fiery ocean which takes on form the further away it moves away from its origin point. Although it solidifies and becomes existence, it would still be a universal force. It isn’t exactly the source its a extension, a separate emanation of the source, a mutated essence if you will taking on its own sentience in some cases.
To me personally this is sort of like the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost
So it’s not exactly God its not actually God’s essence wouldn’t it be the case its a extension just breaking it down without the religious or mythological ties
I by no means wanna belittle the belief in the Holy Ghost but to me, it is like star wars (The Force) that universal essence which is divine, it lays dormant until it chooses not to or someone calls it or even wields it
