I believe in god and that he is within me. I know myself to be lazy, reactive, and willing to do the easy thing... even when it may not be the right thing. Given that, then where is this god that is within me.
God as the better self; who is constant & moral, the ever solid rock of boundless love, the all seeing & wise care giver. That profound piece of myself that is shared by every other being on this planet, cannot occupy the same space as my daily self.
Rabbi Darby requested that we not react to that show stopping phrase "God sitting on a high throne" in our prayer on Rosh Hashanah; that we simply see what it might mean in our lives. Pondering this provided a meditation I have found rich and rewarding. It became easy to see where the god in me resided. Above it all, detached from the considerations that so often run our moments, being in the space that offers the quietude and opportunity for reflection that we so often bemoan the absence of when looking back on our actions… -> "sitting on a high throne".
It is easy to understand that metaphor when you imagine a world devoid of our modern language of psychology.
