Adoption, Philosophy

Is God Inside or Outside Us?

My birthmother had a Christian upbringing. My birthfather was a Sephardic Jew. His father was a rabbi from Aleppo. I never met my birthmother or father. Although their acquaintance was probably brief, I wonder if they ever realized the holy books of their religions included the first five books of the Bible.

And here I am as the offspring between these two great religions.

I am so lucky to have experienced the life as an adoptee from loving parents who encouraged me to grow in wisdom by searching deep within myself.

Perhaps God is not confined inside a church, a mosque, or a synagogue.
Perhaps God is not just over here or over there or up there.
Perhaps God is everywhere at the same time.
Perhaps God is both inside us and outside us.
After all, we are all born from the stars.
