Shabbat shalom

We desire to possess God; we desire a continuity in space and time of possession of God. We are not content with the inexpressible confirmation of meaning, but want to see this confirmation stretched out as something that can be continually taken up and handled, a continuum unbroken in space and time that insures our life at every point and every moment.

Martin Buber, I and Thou, translated by Ronald Gregor Smith, Scribner Classics, 2000 (1958), 107.
