God definition

God s love means that God eternally gives of himself to others.” Even before creation, the persons of the Trinity loved and gave of themselves to one another (Jn 17:24). We imitate this attribute by loving God with our whole being and by loving our neighbor as ourself (Matt 22:37–39). God is also holy; “he is separated from sin and devoted to seeking his own honor.” God cannot tolerate sin, and he commands his people to pursue this same holiness (Lev 19:2; Heb 12:10–14).
God s blessedness means that God delights fully in himself and in all that reflects his character.” This means that God is a happy, joyful God; he is entirely happy in his own person and joyful in who he is. He is happy with his work, and with everything, that reflects his own glory. He rejoices in his people, not in our failings but in the ways in which we reflect his excellence. We imitate God’s blessedness by rejoicing in everything that God finds delightful, be it the good deeds of others, the gifts that he has given us, creation as it reflects his character, or God himself.

God of course, means different things to different people in different traditions. By offering nuanced spellings — GOD, GOD, or Godde — the meaning I intend is this: Reality with a personality, not a person outside reality. What is gained by spelling GOD with all (or small) capital letters or by going back to a spelling left behind some 600 years ago? Just this: an opportunity for each of us to nurture a personal relationship to the Nature part of Nature+, not just the + or transcendent aspect. Consider the words of James Hillman, one of the more influential psychologists of the past half-century:
