The belief in a higher, metaphysical power/force that exists within all life. People who believe in pantheism are known as pantheists.
Pantheism does not directly imply the existence of (an) individual god(s) or deity as a person. It rather implies the existence of a godly essence within all living things. This may or may not imply the existence of an afterlife or fate. Pantheism can either be completely separate from theism, or the two can overlap.
pantheism is not monotheism or polytheism

A belief that God exists in all things, both living and inanimate.
Pantheism is a belief that the universe/nature and God are identical. The word derives from the Ancient Greek: pan meaning "all" and theos meaning "belief that God is all."

From pan (everything) and theism (belief in God). Belief that God IS the Universe, and the Universe IS God. Variations include pandeism (God became the Universe), panentheism (the Universe is part of but not all of God), theopanism (same concept from a different angle, the Universe is God because it is the Universe).
If you believe in pantheism, you don't have to go far to find God because he's everywhere.
