People generally choose God(s) (in various forms and names) to devote themselves to based on the qualities and traits they are said to possess.
The traits are usually representative of a larger archetype that the devotee wants to portray and has the qualities that they want to possess.
Once the person discovers these qualities that suit him/her best, it will determine who they identity with in a divine, mythological or spiritual way.
It should be practical and work with their lifestyle, ultimately inspiring them to want to excel in the areas they want to in life.
Once they find those qualities, principals and truths that fit their chemistry, then they should devote themselves , or rather “sacrifice” themselves to themselves.
This is the Odian path…
