On not defining God- Thought for the Week

By November 17, 2016 Thought for the week
“Whenever we try to define or explain God, we limit life .
Whenever we try to define or explain God (All That Is) we limit our understanding of God, ourselves and the potential within us all.
God is an experience – one of majesty and mystery. Not to be fully known or defined but opened into as an experience that lifts us higher into the knowing of who we are.
Of course we use words to describe God. However let us not get stuck there. Let us use  them to open to the experience that God can be.
As written by an unknown Christian mystic in the 14th century, in The Cloud of Unknowing , the underlying message is to encourage us to abandon consideration of God’s particular attributes and be courageous enough to surrender one’s mind to the realm of unknowing, when one may begin to glimpse the nature of God.
May we let God be as God desires to be, through and as us, day by day.
