Is there a God?

That is the age-old question.

I think a lot of us start and spend our lives asking ourselves this. We dive deep on things like:

“How did I get here?”
“What does all this mean?”
“What happens after I die?”

We either believe in God or we don’t.

Or we find other explanations to justify the meaning and purpose of life.

We seek answers to why good and bad things happen to us and in this world.

But what do you say if someones asks you straight up, “Who is God?” Would you know how to answer the question?

What would you say if your child or any child asks you this question for the very first time?

Your own answer may surprise you, especially when you’re put on the hotseat.

I recently stumbled upon the most beautiful video of Goldie Hawn answering this question, when her then 4-year-old daughter, Kate Hudson asked her, “Mommy, is God my cousin?”

According to Goldie, after she answered the question, she thought to herself, “‘Gee, Gold, that was really good!’ Because it’s kind of what I thought but until somebody asks you what you think, sometimes you don’t know. Sometimes you can’t hear yourself or even your own thoughts.”

“Your teacher might be a child who takes you by the hand and asks you a question that you hadn’t considered before, and your answer to the child is your answer to yourself.” Wayne Dyer

I watched the video of Goldie’s answer to that very difficult question, and I have to say, I can’t agree more. She said it so beautifully and really makes you question the concept of how we “define” things.

Does it really matter how you define God versus how you feel God?

Her answer made me remember this most beautiful quote about love:

“To describe love is very difficult for the same reason that words cannot fully describe the flavor of an orange. You have to taste the fruit to know its flavor. So with love.” Paramahansa Yogananda
