Pantheism is a clever fudge.
Since the Greek word pan, meaning ALL (meaning every 1), is undefined (i.e. non-specific) and the Greek word theos, meaning God, is also undefined (i.e. non-specific), the whole word pantheos is both meaningful to some and meaningless to others because undefined.
If ALL (i.e. every single thing/function, to wit, nature as such or life itself and all its attributes and functions) is God (Sanskrit: tattvamasi), is anyone the wiser as to the how and why of ALL (indeed of every single 1)? Obviously not!
So why choose pantheism as a belief?
The personal advantage, as survival strategy, of claiming to be a pantheist is that it avoids the accusation by Bible, Koran, Veda, Buddhist Sutra thumping fanatics of being an atheist and therefore the very Ďreal and presentí danger of being excluded, incarcerated, tortured or murdered. It also ends the deeply distressing uncertainty about life-as-God and my role-as-god in it.
So, as a pantheist I can honestly state that ĎI believe in God.í But Iím not forced to take sides since I take (God as) all sides. In other words, since all sides (and not just a sectarian selection as in Christianity or the Krishna or Ganesh cults) are God I avoid confrontation by agreeing with all sides from a (typically early Buddhist) position on the fence.
Moreover, since I believe that I am God (and that as you too are God), by fulfilling, indeed perfecting any task/function in my life (and which is God) I perfect God in/as my life and find happy closure.
In other words, by fulfilling and so perfecting one (i.e. any 1, i.e. any quantum or unit of life or any one of its functions) I fulfil and perfect all.
