The Act of Becoming Human
(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor
At what point do we, does one, do I decide who I am?
Is it a matter of time?
The search for "my authentic self" is
internal and beyond,
immanent and transcendent....
It is in the process of encountering the other,
and The Other,
as life unfolds
that the contours of your soul, our Soul, my soul
can be felt, discerned.
How can I know God if I do not know myself?
How can I know myself if I do not encounter you?
What am I alone?
Is there such a thing?
