    I don't think there is a different god for every religion, I think its an "elephant" kind of thing, and everyone is blindfolded and has a different piece that elephant.

    whonunuwho, you're right.

    Yes, I have been around the block a few times and figured I'm better off piecing together my own spirituality based on whether based on if it works for me. I was looking at Joseph Campbell last night, hence the question.

    I haven't tried using the forum feature on Hubpages, I'm just not familiar with it. And I'm not looking for discord, just an honest opinion from a personal point of few concerning enlightenment and spiritual fulfillment.

    I have heard there was a Christian mystic tradition, but not much more about it after the of the 21st century, and that it lost popular favor.

    True.

    I sometimes think of God as the smallest of things in the universe, but is in everything and everywhere. But I wonder what's the best perception for myself to perceive God.

    I guess I am shopping for parts and pieces to build my own spirituality and looking for personal opinions.

    But should religion be "everything"?

    This is also true.

    And it is happening as we speak as people find they can no longer express themselves in either Oriental or Western religions, but find more room for spiritual expression by pursuing their own paths.
