Encyclopedia of African Religion, editors Molefi kete asante ,
Ama Mazama

"Thus god is praised as the unknown, the mysterious one, as a kikongo saying puts it explicitly: ku tombi nzambi ko, kadi ka mean ye nitu ko- don't look for god, he does not have a body. The baluba and other people liken god to the wind or to the word of the mouth.

A traditional Twa hymn:

In the beginning was god
Today is god
Tomorrow will be god
Who can make an image of God?
He has no body
He is a word which comes out of your mouth
That word! It is no more,
It is past, and still it lives!
So is god."

In all pagan traditional paths, god is a code name for the chakras. When it is said that god is unattainable and doesn't have a body, ever present, etc, this is the life force, the aether. I notice all african traditional religions highlight this.
