> I don't believe that God is faith because I have always sensed the presence of God, yet I didn't have much or any faith in it. I say "it" because I don't believe in a personal God who created us in his image. I believe that God is a spirit in most if not all of nature including animals, plant life and human life. But I don't believe that God is some kind of figurehead in heaven who listens to or responds to our personal prayers. I think prayer can be effective anyways simply because it is transmitting intention in some metaphysical way. I'm not all that in to metaphysics though. This is my guess based on certain things I've read about why prayer is proven to be effective.

Faith is belief in something that is not seen, but is real.
I agree with what you said about the best way to be close to God is to keep His commandments. Even if you don't know you are actually keeping His commandments when you choose to live that way, it still makes a difference.
