More about "god"

I said yesterday that  "God" isn't an abstract theory: it's an idea that has shaped Judaism and many other faiths. Earlier, on 17th December 2016 I wrote: "I can still allow the world to open for me the unseen 'isness' of the trees and the land; and, when the need becomes great, the unseen presence of the Angels." But the first words of Rainer Maria Rilke's "Duino Elegies" were "Every Angel is terrible". Great was the spiritual distance between myself and them.
