Hesitation to use the I may be a tell-tale sign that the I does not know itself fully. Or maybe the I doesn’t know which I, of the many different Is, to use. In any case, there is an I. And there is a You. The You is validated by the I. There couldn’t be a You without the I. But the I also becomes a You through the validation of I through You. And so, the I also exists thanks to You. And so to You who is reading this confused speech of I, THANK YOU. I's existence has become meaningful because of You.______________________________

It’s not that I don’t believe in God, it’s just that my concept of God isn’t what it used to be, which is that of an omnipotent super powerful Being that is conceptualized to look like human and is referred to as “He”. Nor do I believe that God is “up there, looking down on us.”
Rather, my concept of “God” is more of a universal, holistic, kind of being that I can’t really imagine as a “Being” simply because it implies distinction. What I mean is, I believe “God” is both a part of, and is also the whole of, everything. That is, God is borne of, or IS, the connection of everything in this universe. God IS the Universe. This is why each one of us has the capability to feel the presence of God and/or the connection of all things should we so choose.
It’s still consistent with the teachings I learned in Catholic School which is that God is love, and is all around us.
Does this make sense?
