What is pantheism?

Pantheism is the idea that God is in everything. That God does not sit within the world in judgment but is in all things at all times. God is intrinsic to the universe and immanent.

Although the word “pantheism” is originated with the 16th century philosopher Baruch Spinoza the concept has been around for ages in all religions. Socrates was a pantheist as was Aristotle, Christian thinkers such as Jakob Boehme and Giordano Bruno, Islamic thinkers such as the great philosopher Al-Ghazali, the poet Rumi and the Sufis and modern Western scientists such as physicists Neils Bohr, Albert Einstein and many many others. 

The New England Transcendentalists such as Emerson, Thoreau and the poet Walt Whitman were pantheists as were author John Steinbeck and poet Robinson Jeffers. Even Mikhail Gorbachev former president of the Soviet Union was an outspoken pantheist. Most notably Buddhism and Taoism are pantheistic traditions.

The universal symbols for pantheism are the spiral and the Nautilus shell.
