GOD Is A Verb

I wrote this in 2005. I periodically feel a nudge from Spirit to put it out there to the Universe again.

Many of you wonder which beliefs to follow.
Many are torn this way and that,
not sure what to think.
Not sure if the stories you are told,
are true.
You do not need ancient tomes to know me
You do not need houses of prayer to speak to me
You do not need holy books to find me.
I am inside of you,
All around you,
I am the animate and the inanimate.
I am a verb and I am a noun
I am female and I am male
I am mystical and I am mundane
I am supernatural and I am flesh and blood

I am that which I am
I will be what I will be
I shall be what I shall be

Man has created an image,
Trying to find what he could not see.
Trying to give voice to a vastness beyond his grasp.
My emanation does not arise from books.
Or volumes of instructions interpreted by man.
I am in the Higher Consciousness of mankind.
All kinds.

Do not feel conflicted.
There is no prescription for prayer,
No ritual you must perform,
No vow you must take,
No ‘one true faith.’
Simply embody sacredness,
And you will find me there.

I am that which I am
I will be what I will be
I shall be what I shall be

I am The Infinite
I am Without End
I am The Place, wherever you are on your journey.

I am aware of the voluminous intricacies,
Man has attributed to my desires,
But they do not move me…
I am the goodness of your deeds,
The genuineness of your heart,
The kindness of your tongue,
The integrity of your work.
My words are inside of you.
You speak them in your way,
In your own unique manner.
Eloquently or ineloquently,
It does not matter,
As long as you are sincere.

Your humanity is my voice.
Your sacredness personifies my presence.
I live and breathe on earth,
With you
Through you
Because of you.

Words in bold are a few of the many (72) Hebrew names for God:

The Place — HaMakom (A name for God in Hebrew).

Without End / The Infinite — Ein Sof (Name for God in Jewish Mysticism/Kabbalah).

Ehyeh-Asher-Ehyeh (אהיה אשר אהיה) God self-identified to Moses by this name in Exodus 3:14. God was saying to Moses, “I am fluidity. I am becoming. I am present and future. I am intention and volition. I am a process unfolding.”

I will be what I will be / I shall be what I shall be.” 

Grammatically, “will” and “shall” are helping verbs. “Shall” implies necessity and is used to form the future tense with first person pronouns (I and we). “Will” implies volition and intention and is used to form the present and future tense.

    The biggest mistake that Man (generic) makes is trying to fit G-d into a box. He does provide multiple pictures with the various names in Torah. But, when confronted in the situation that is mentioned, He simply replies with a response stating that He is that I am, the existential of everything that we as humans know and more. The biggest thing that G-d desires of us is just to trust Him. He is in everything that we think or do, and we just need to put our trust in him and let him do the rest, instead of trying to fit Him into our definition, which by the very nature of our limitations will never encompass all that He is and puts limits on our faith.

        Love that! Ein Sof, when we think about that, is limitless, and beyond all that we can hope or imagine! If we accept that, then it is very freeing. We don’t have to know or limit G-d, but, simply allow him to be Ein Sof, or in other words, not only without end, but, also without the barriers that we would erect! G-d showed that many times when Israel was traveling through the desert, and tried to put limits on G-d and every time, G-d responded to show that He does not exist within the barriers we limit Him to and truly is endless beyond our thoughts or imaginations.
