Apophatic theology says God cannot be described or even truly comprehended by humans.
Cataphatic theology says the opposite and assigns specific traits to God.
In seeking union with the divine, which approach do you have in mind? What influenced your decision?
Note: I am using "God" here to mean either God, the Absolute, the Divine, Brahman, the Higher Self, or however you conceptualize what you are seeking mystic union with.
I only have one experience to go by, and while it was apophatic in that it was seemingly indescribable in the moment and immediately after, I find that leaning on cataphatic symbolism seems to make it easier for my mind to process.
The main focus in my meditative practices right now is focused on a sound, which I can't seem to locate (spiritually not physically lol).
