Swami Vivekananda Thoughts on God



This universal intelligence is what we call God. Call it by any other name, it is absolutely certain that in the beginning there is that Infinite cosmic intelligence. This cosmic intelligence gets involved, and it manifests, evolves itself, until it becomes the perfect man. Then it goes back to its own source.

That is why all the scriptures say, 'In Him we live and move and have our being.'

That is why all the scriptures preach that we come from God and go back to God.

Do not be frightened by theological terms; if terms frighten you, you are not fit to be philosophers. This cosmic intelligence is what the theologians call God.
