The mental difficulty of understanding God

“Therefore most of the wise disciples who seek GOD will find weary and weary in spirit.” The first paragraph speaks of all human beings seeking GOD, the Absolute, that which is above all, that which is beyond. But seemingly there is no such thing in the world. The result, in the end, is that the serious, truth-seeking people end up frustrated because when they try to get closer to GOD, they fulfill him and treat him in the wrong mental way and thereby diminish him, thus moving away from him.

“We need to show the way how to enter the lounge. The gate is the divinity revealed in the world. In the world in all its beauty and splendor, in every spirit and soul, in every living thing and creeper, in every plant and flower, in every gentile and kingdom, in the sea and its waves, in the fragrances of play and the exclusion of the luminaries, in the talents of every discourse, in the ideas of every writer, in the imaginations of every poet and in the logics of every thinker, in the feeling of every feeling and in the storm of the heroism of all Hero.”

Here comes Kook’s solution: “You have to show the way to get into the lounge” is a parable. To enter the palace you have to go through the gate. And what is that gate?

“In the ideas of every writer, in the imaginations of every poet and in the logic of every thinker, in the feeling of every feeling and in the storm of the heroism of every hero” Kook explains that the relation to GOD is the relation to the whole being to all reality and beyond. The rabbi writes here in the form of a song to emphasize to us that “GOD is revealed in everything,” (when writing dryly and technically). The lyrical poetic way makes a person understand also through his feelings of admiration, life, and soul, that the concept of “everything” really includes everything. It includes, for example, all the thoughts that have been and will be and everything that has happened or will happen in the world.

Here is a trap to watch out for. “Everything” is an infinite concept, and it is very similar to the philosophical method of Baruch Spinoza, called Pantheism. As “pan” means general, and “theism” means divine, he is almost right, but because he is almost right, he is completely wrong. Spinoza claimed that GOD is everything, and it is a complete mistake to say so. Instead, we say that GOD appears in everything. When we say appear, we do not reduce GOD to our “everything.” Whoever claims that GOD is everything, in fact reduces and limits him.

To say that Isaac appears in a suit describes him, but does not limit and diminish him. If we say that Isaac is a man dressed in a suit, when Isaac comes without a suit, he will not be Isaac. When Spinoza says that GOD is everything, he defines and fulfills GOD, only within the limits of human thought of the word “everything.” When we say that GOD appears in everything, we are not talking about the essence of GOD.

The relationship to GOD stems from our encounter with GOD’s appearance to us through reality. Just as our ability to relate to every detail in reality, from man to a grain of dust, stems from our encounter with the way he appears in reality, from the way he experiences all his appearances, and as explained in the technical stage, so exactly the ability to experience GOD is solely through his actions. Of course, when it comes to all the actions of the saint, blessed is the meaning is everything.

The novelty of this form of looking is that while in the past we thought one had to ascend to some supernatural and metaphysical conception in order to know and know GOD, now it is understandable that the Blessed One simply appears here everywhere. Instead of seeking GOD at lofty heights, we discovered that he is already here and appears in all reality. Instead of going up to it, we realized we just needed to know how to look around.

We have completed the stage of the pedestal. The relation to the divine concept is the relation to everything. We now have in hand a way in which we can address all questions of faith.

In the spiritual world reside the forces that operate our lives in daily reality. Get to know them, because your happiness depends on them.

While we are selfish creatures with survival mechanisms and animal instincts to achieve more than we need, we’re also wired (DNA & neurotheology) for spirituality and to live for the greater good, for the higher self. For that reason, we are wired to protect our spouse, our family, our country, and be connected to a higher spirituality we call GOD (whatever it is).

We seek to connect to the highest authority which is above human sensual perception. We seek a GOD to be our ultimate guide. Not the GOD that the religions created for us with endless restrictions and imaginary hell and heaven, but the true real GOD.

This book sums up thousands of years and debates to one practical conclusion: is it good for humans to have and believe in (a) GOD or not.

While emerging in the debate, keep an open mind and ignore any religious misconception of who GOD really is. You are here because you care to know if there is a higher authority and if your life will be more fulfilled with GOD in it. You want to know if spirituality is good for you.


The spirit is invisible, but it is revealed in every phenomenon in life that means oneness. It is revealed the moment you look into a person’s eyes and discover that you both feel the same. Spirituality is revealed as soon as you do something that makes others a caravan of joy. It is revealed the moment someone refers to you and you refer to him, and you are both aware of each other’s existence. As a Roman poet so beautifully put it: “Outside all the notions of good and evil there is a field. Will you meet me there?”

Socrates was said to have not come from Athens, but from the world. You and I are two aspects of one reality, united and all-embracing. In unity no differences are eliminated. For things to unite, they do not have to lose their individual identities.  In unity only the separation between them is abolished, which is the difference in value and importance. Then it turns out that everything is one thing.
