For me, there's just God dreaming endless dreams, playing each and every role, as and through the character/mind/body mechanism whether that be human or animal, or even as and through Flora, & Fauna... Also including the idea of Satan and Evil. Each character being a popped aware aspect of Gods ultimate infinite awareness...popped awareness that is constantly arising and falling like a wave out of the ocean. And that everything that could possibly happen is happening simultaneously right here and now infintely for eternity.
It's that simple for me. Nothing is excluded, nothing is included, for God is all inclusive.
I also believe that Gods love for itself is unconditional, it allows all expression of being, one side is of an expansive nature - while the other side is of a contraction nature, contraction that tends to automatically coil away from evil and hatred. And that both love and hate are mutually arising like that of the heartbeat, contracting and expanding within the same body. I also think that the whole universe is God's body.
There's a part of the heart that expresses itself as harmful evil and hatred, and there's the opposite side of the heart that expresses itself as pure harmless love and all things of beauty. And yet it's all the same one love in action dreaming difference where there is none. This is how I see, and cannot change my way of seeing it this way.
So God or "&^*&(&()&*%&$"
