WHAT DOES GOD LOOK LIKE? The French philosopher Montesquieu in the 18th century wrote that the image of God as a human proves he's the creation of human minds. He claimed that if a cow believed in God, it would assume that God was a cow, and that if triangles believed in God, then God would have three sides.
So naturally, male Caucasians believe God to be a White Male. And each country, each culture depicts God in terms familiar to themselves. Occult philosophy teaches that people see God as themselves at their best, and their Devil as themselves at their worst.
I think we need to try and move beyond this. Of course the idea of a personal God is one that we as humans can relate to ... even if it is a gross distortion. But maybe it is time to try and find a new image, go on to the next step. Perhaps we could picture God as the Sun, brilliant giver of all life, with multitudes of indivisible rays streaming out, and perhaps we could think of ourselves as the rays. God is our source, we are connected to God, yet separate.
