RELIGION / SPIRITUALITY

Of the many names of God commonly used in the Bible and other sacred literature, none is God’s real name. Every God-name, including YHWH, reflects only one of God’s many aspects, such as the loving creator, the militaristic authoritarian, or the all-knowing judge. None embodies the wholeness, the totality, the full Essence of God. Who then are we to speak to when we seek God? If you can’t truly know something until you know its name, how can we truly know God?

The culmination of years of translation research and etymological investigation, Rabbi Wayne Dosick’s work digs through many layers of presumption and deeply ingrained beliefs to reveal the real name of God hiding in plain sight in the Bible: Anochi. He shows how this sacred name unites all religions--both of the West and the East. The name Anochi enables us to finally meet the whole, complete, real God--both the grand God of the vast universe and the God of breath, soul, and heart who dwells within each of us.

This in-depth exploration of God’s name includes spiritual techniques, poems, guided prayers, and meditative chants to bring each of us into personal, intimate, and purposeful relationship with God. By knowing the real name of God, we can affirm the connection to the Divine at the core of our being. We can touch the face of God that resides deep within us all.

RABBI WAYNE DOSICK, Ph.D., is the host of the weekly internet radio program SpiritTalk Live, the spiritual guide of the Elijah Minyan Jewish Renewal community in San Diego, and the director of the Soul Center for Spiritual Healing with facilitators throughout the world. A former faculty member of the University of San Diego and the author of several books, including Living Judaism, he lives in La Costa, California.

Review:

"To name is to know. So to know God, Dosick (20 Minute Kabbalah), a rabbi and radio program host, plumbs Hebrew etymology, numerology, and scripture to posit God's actual name: Anochi. Driven by the existence of multiple names of God found in the Torah, Dosick's effort is more than a semantic exercise. It is an attempt to reconcile all aspects of the divine. According to Dosick, Anochi (a translation of the Hebrew word for 'I') is God; all other names represent particular aspects of Anochi. This overriding linguistic label allows Dosick to unify God's conflicting attributes. Importantly, the objective and subjective experience of God is explored through the interplay of the ultimate 'Anochi, I-Source' and the personal 'Anochi-I, God Within.' Dosick stresses, however, that these two facets of Anochi are not identical because 'we are of God, but we are not God.' After introducing Anochi early on, Dosick fills most of the book with prayers, chants, and meditations on God's presence. Although he presents a genuine and moving expression of faith, Dosick's assertion that 'we have found God's real Name' may be too bold for some readers.
