Yahweh

Read this today on a friends' blog today, thankyou Rain for this quote...

I have always loved speaking the name Yahweh.. still to this day when I speak it, it just soothes my soul.

Such a profound nugget of wisdom on the name.

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

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
