Linguistic Limitation

We toss about the word “God” so freely and with such flourish that we deny the reality that the word names something that is beyond all naming, beyond all comprehension. We seem to easily dismiss (or not even understand) that the very word “God” is a linguistic limitation that imposes on the reality of the entity it is feebly attempting to name. God emerges out of primordial silence and is forever silent. We know nothing of the experience of God; we can only experience something of God living in us. God is in all things, but God’s relationship to all things is expressed in silence. Our experience of God is beyond words; we experience God is silence. Silence is the breath of God.
