A Name

Naming the Source is impossible.  Once you name “God,” you are no longer describing the Source.

    This comment compliments what I have been thinking of lately- how we place limitations onthe exprtession of God, even in our naming God- such is to limit the knwoing of God to teh laguage and name given.

    Even in the philosopical construct in which we base our beliefs one still finds that limiting when it comes to defining and naming God. It is the experience of God that transcends it all.
