Where is God?

God is when we stop, God is when we reflect in that time between our conflicts as we figure them out, in those moments before we embrace another.  God is not a deed, not an action. God is before we act, during the act, and after an act. God is not Teshuvah, it is where you go that God is.  God is not Tzedakah, it is where the giving brings you that God lives. 

God is between the words, it is in our pauses, it is between the words that we sing, not the words themselves, it is how the song makes us feel and where our prayers take us, not the prayers themselves.  God is when we listen, in the spaces between the letters, between the words that we pray.  God is not in the tallis or the tzitzit or the tefillin. God is what they bring you too. God is in our intention.

About Todd Greenberg

A Jew by birth, a seeker for 60 years. Having realized that all my previous studies and searching brought me back to Judaism as the foundation for my Spiritual practice and my connection to Hashem. Life's love and all that has been challenged in me has been inspirational over the last year to write poetry. Thank you for the opportunity to share what is in my heart and mind.
