It never ceases to amaze me how when calling out the
name of God. we are really all saying the same thing.
We try to define God, but really to some extent it's just
beyond our understanding (no matter what religion or
supreme being belief we might hold).
The Taoist go a step further to say that God or Tao
HAS NO NAME; there is no name that is adequate
enough to describe having no beginning and having
no end in any direction (only a center); the very
center from which creation first springs. The Taoist
believe that to attempt to name it only diminishes
our understanding and its meaning.
It resonates with me that God was lonely or bored
with just being One. It also resonates with me that
the ETs are not God anymore than we are or the
Egyptian pharaohs are, though some ETs and pharaohs
and other leaders in recorded history insist they are.
i would agree with the Rabbi on those two points;
we are not God.We are in God's image and are
therefore capable of God-like behavior (we are able
to dream and create and manifest) but God (not
"A Being"... but "All Being") is something much more
profound and greater than ourselves.
It was a good interview, SM. Thank you. i hope you'll
interview Rabbi Dosick's wife sometime down the line too.
