Immanence and Transcendence

by Michael Colantoni

“God’s place is the World, but the World is not God’s place.”

In this Kabbalistic saying is the clear statement that while God is present in Existence, God is quite separate from it. This mystery of Immanence and Transcendence is where God and the World meet in intimate and mutual knowledge. Such a miracle forms the basis of the Kabbalistic view of the Universe.
