Our Very Breath Testifies to Our Maker

As I read one of may favorite blogs today, this quote resounded in my spirit so I thought I would share it with you.

The letters of the name of God in Hebrew… are infrequently pronounced Yahweh. But in truth they are  inutterable….

This word {YHWY} is the sound of breathing.

The holiest name in the world, the Name of Creator, is the sound of your own breathing. That these letters are unpronounceable is no accident. Just as it is no accident that they are also the root letters of the Hebrew verb ‘to be’… God’s name is name of Being itself.

~Rabbi Lawrence Kushner
