Words mean whatever we want them to mean, except when we want to mean a specific thing.

In the highest sense, the term God is identical to 'reality', but conceived as a single, unchanging, metaphysical entity.  All other interpretations are derived from this by limiting the initial concept in some way.  The anthropomorphic God is constructed by assuming that God and the physical world are separate, implying that God is the 'creator' of the physical world, one then projects themselves onto this concept of 'creator' and what results is the anthropomorphic God.

Ego is the creator of this physical world. But he is  not in the same time.

God is objective reality; the universe as it exists beyond our perspective and our ego.

And just when you think you've figured out God, along comes Godhead!

God and Godhead are as distinct as heaven and earth.  Heaven stands a thousand miles above the earth, and even so the Godhead is above God.  God becomes and disbecomes.  Whoever understands this preaching, I wish him well.  But even if nobody had been here, I must still have preached this to the poor-box.   --Eckhart

Bow before that which you cannot perceive!

The great Mother, the tao, is older than God.
It took me a long time to digest this.
So I let it take a long time.
And now I see the truth of it.
