And, I have found your definition to be "lacking in clarity".
As for my definition of "god"...
-- God IS the Entirety.
-- The Essential Kabbalah
-- The Heart of Jewish Mysticism
-- By: Daniel C. Matt
The Essence of divinity is found in every single thing -- Nothing but it exists.
Since it causes every thing to be, no thing can live by anything else.
It enlivens them; its existence exists in each existent.
Do not attribute duality to God. Let God be solely God.
If you suppose that Ein Sof emanates until a certain point,
and that from that point on is outside of it, you have dualized.
God forbid! Realize, rather, that Ein Sof exists in each existent.
Do not say, "This is a stone and not God." God forbid!
Rather, all existence is God, and the stone is a thing pervaded by divinity.
Our perception of the "many"...
Is merely an illusion...
Created by our current condition of...
In this condition, we perceive ourselves to be...
-- Apart from God.
While nothing could be further from the truth...
-- God is ONE...
-- There is no "other".
-- All that exists is a Part OF God.
Does that help...?
