The Spirit of Becoming

The proper name of the God of Moses is יהוה which means "Becoming."

That is to say, the Name of the God of Moses is nominally equivalent to an abstraction that, in English, would be "The Process of Becoming" (or just 'Becoming' for short).

What is 'Divine' in living systems is Becoming (e.g. the phenomenon of growth, transformation, and maturation).

I reckon it's unbecoming not to believe in Becoming.

The Process of Becoming is Awesome.

Let me elaborate ...

As a scientist, researcher, educator, and sentient being, I am fascinated by the following processes, which I seek to understand and participate in:
  1. The Process of Creation in the Cosmos
  2. The Process of Evolution in the Biosphere
  3. The Process of Enlightenment in the Noösphere
  4. The Discovery Learning Process in the Brain and Mind
  5. The Creative Process in the Arts
  6. The Problem-Solving Process in Engineering
  7. The Peace Process in Human Culture
  8. The Nurturing Process in Relationships
  9. The Healing Process in the Human Spirit
  10. The Process of Falling in Love with Life and People
I subsume all of the above under one umbrella term, "The Divine Process of Becoming" (or just 'Becoming' for short).

To my mind, it is unbecoming not to believe in Becoming.

Discovering, experiencing, understanding, and participating in these (and similar) processes not only makes me feel alive and engaged with life, it makes me feel connected to God, Orenda, or whatever you like to call your Higher Spirit.

I like to call it the 'Spirit of Becoming'.
