Subterranean powers run our lives. We are not really in control of ourselves and destinies as much as we think. The illusion is that we have conscious control over our lives; the reality is that our preferences, desires, goals, objectives, loves, hates, etc. are all affected and determined by "forces" inside of us evolving along with our bodies over millions of years. Sometimes, I think that these "forces" are the real expression of God (and that they actually help us understand what God is as an actor in the universe). But perhaps it's best to just live with the mystery of it all.
