The question was: What is your experience of the Divine? “Now there was a great wind, so strong that it was splitting mountains and breaking rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of sheer silence. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. Then there came a voice to him that said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”” This is how I experience the Divine. In the silence, in the space between moments. To me, the Divine is everything, everyone. It’s usually in the intersections of things. The in-between places. I don;t need to seek it, it is always there. It is the sun, the sea, and the sky, it’s the universe trying to understand itself. It’s the emanations on the Tree, There is no wrong way to get there, to find it, because it is literally everything. The only time I cannot find the Divine is when I am distracted and wrapped up in my everyday life. That is not because the Divine leaves me…it is because I am blinded by my own concerns. I isolate myself out of habit and fear. When I take time away, when I find that silence, then everything is made whole again.
