parabrahman and action

THinking of Parabrahman acting are two concepts that don't unite in 
my mind, which is why I talked about "any god", instead of your word: 
Parabrahman. Parabrahman is the All, isn't it, the fundamental root 
of everything, allencompassing etc. It acts only in that there is 
action in it - at least, that is how my mind can only see it. To ask 
for its inspiration in action, seems like a contradiction in terms. 
to me.
