ABSTRACT
The author explores on the different social and religious locations in which he dismissed the metaphysical questions about the nature of God as abstracts and irrelevant in an attempt to change the world. He points out that the language of surrender or obliteration of self found in mystical traditions is rooted not only in images of God as dominating other but in manichaean metaphysical impression of divine transcendence which is found in classical faith as well. The author claims that embodied mysticism and feminist paradigm provides firmer foundations for feminist theologies than the transcendent mysticism.
