To a thinking man, the god idea, is best represented by the collective consciousness of everyone, as that power that determines and rules our lives. In that, he sees a little of god in everybody. To that extent, god is also an unquestionable concept, we can create inquiries to understand but not create arguments to refute or support the idea. In Indian writings, god is represented as a partner in our lives, which may be understood better with the practice of discernment. From Alan Watts - ' God also likes to play hide-and-seek, but because there is nothing outside God, He has no one but himself to play with. But He gets over this difficulty by pretending that He is not Himself. This is His way of hiding from Himself. He pretends that He is you and I and all the people in the world, all the animals, all the plants, all the rocks, and all the stars. In this way He has strange and wonderful adventures, some of which are terrible and frightening. But these are just like bad dreams, for when He wakes up they will disappear.'
