A definition of God¶

If there weren’t somewhere a source of hope, justice, truth, and love, we would not have rooted in us the hope of justice, truth, and love that we find in every religion and every degree of civilization. It’s that source that I call God.
Yes, we can observe a hope of justice, truth, and love in every religion and every degree of civilization. One possible explanation for these universal human aspirations is that there is a “source” for them. We cannot understand or name this source in its fullness, No human mind has ever understood or named this source in its fullness, but we can assume that it exists, and we may call it “God”.
