Ep 8: What I Mean When I Say the Word "God"
Release Date: 08/28/2017
This has been by far the hardest podcast episode to record in the history of podcast recording for me. How do you give words to something that is so intimately known and felt? How do you give words to something that is so vast and intangible?
I do my best and still feel I'm coming up far short, but maybe that's because language doesn't do God justice. Maybe that's why God is described through music and art and poetry.
Yet, I think this conversation is important as I know the word "God" carries a lot of meaning and association for many of us.
For years, I wouldn't speak that word because of all the memories and connotations it brought up. For the longest time, God felt like it was a word I could only use if I belonged to a specific faith. And it's only been this past year that I've officially reclaimed that word for myself. It's been incredibly healing and restorative to reclaim a word that means to much to me personally yet has such a different meaning than it once did.
On today's episode, I tell you, quite vulnerably, what I mean when I say the word God, but I want to hear from you.
- What word feels most resonant for you at this point in time? The Universe? Source? Spirit? Divine?
- How would you describe what this word means to you?
