Where is Hashem? Up there, in the sky? Really?
That’s what they taught you when you were very little, but as you mature, you realize that up there is a sky and clouds, but Hashem is inside you. He’s with you every moment of every day, everywhere you go.
If you lived your whole life as a Jew, going to shul three times a day and davening, saying every word, but you never ever learned that Hashem isn’t “there,” but “right here,” then you’ve missed out on the essence of being a Jew.
Hashem is here, right here, inside me. ~ Charlie Harary
