More basic than spirit: to meet

For sure our pictures of G*d are our creations. A white haired old man on a throne; a Caucasian Jesus; a fat Buddha. A puppet master.

Beyond pictures? The actions we attribute to divinity, the attributes we attribute to divinity, are our creations.

Beyond this all, to what is? How can we know without using our minds?

That is a live question. We can know with our bodies. Is there another part of us that knows? Our spirit? I think that may be. For herein I know. I have met.

More basic than spirit: to meet. To be a person in the face of person.

That is where our “fear” of G*d resides, our awe: to really meet. To stand naked in soul in the face of this One. And transact what is us.
