Do you consider your deities to be anthropomorphic?
My top deity God is non-anthropomorphic, like the
Muslim God.

Also do you assign genders to your deities?
Currently I refer to my God, who I define as the
all-governing someone, as "it". However I
am considering instead saying that my God has
all eight sexual harmonics, which I describe
near the end of the Recent Changes/Working Notes
section of my Salmon on the Thorns web page.
If I made that adjustment, I would then view
my God as optimally sexually compatible with everyone.
Such a view could be in line with tantrism or Sufism, maybe.

Some of you may be interested in my
Holy Thursday/Maundy Thursday/spring cleaning notes
post to alt.religion.christian , where I do mention
assisted shaktipat to other religions and atheism.

and can be identified with by everyone

Perhaps I should use God/dess but I find that awkward, and
if the word actor can be gender nonspecific I think the
word God can as well.

Here is a brief summary of the eight harmonics theory for those
who, like me, are reluctant to click on links in a Usenet newsgroup
post, especially http rather than https:

I have a theory of four orientations (purestraight, gay/lesbian, bisexual
by nature, and fourth orientation compatible only with bisexual by
nature of the opposite gender) and two spiritual genders, so effectively
eight harmonics (1M, 2M, 3M, 4M, 1F, 2F, 3F, 4F). However one
must also be careful to watch for transgender cases (e.g. 1MT would
be spiritually purestraight male in a female body) and multispirit
individuals, which I define not as transgender but as individuals
with more than one harmonic, generally equal number of male
and female harmonics, and usually two-spirit, e.g. 3F/2MT, but
I did come across one four-spirit individual, 1M/2M/1FT/2FT,
compatible with everyone other than 4F and 4M, so far, and a
3M/3FT or 3F/3MT would be at least partially compatible with
everybody, and if there was an eight-spirit individual they would
be optimally compatible with everyone, as would a 1M/1F/3M/3F.

When I say bisexual by nature I mean someone who feels
sexual attraction to both genders, but can be honestly either
bisexual, straight, celibate, or gay/lesbian by lifestyle choice.
When I say partially compatible I mean less likely to
stick, so a 1M is optimally compatible with a 1F but
only partially compatible with a 3F, and I think also
that a 3F is only partially compatible with a 3M but
is optimally compatible with a 4M, 3F, or 2F.

I base my theory partly on my own sexual attractions (I think
I am 4M) but I also used it, with at least one confirmed 1M/3FT
result, when I thought I had a matchmaking siddhi (paranormal
ability) from late March 8 to early March 20, 2019, which
I hope will return someday. When I say above that I came
across a 1M/2M/1FT/2FT, that was using my ability on a
picture and it has not yet been confirmed. And through
what I call assisted shaktipat I have been trying to pass
on the ability to at least a million individuals worldwide,
who should benefit from my theory. But if not, the theory
should be able to be researched and applied through surveys.
The confusing part is that many who are bisexual by nature
are straight by lifestyle choice, and some gay/lesbian (sexually
attracted to just the same gender) are dishonestly (although
unfortunately forced in some cases) trying to be bisexual or straight.

I do not believe there are asexuals, though a 4M who has had
no experience yet with 3F might think that he is.
