The verse below is written by a WordPress acquaintance living in Israel and is one of many explorations of deity or the lack of it, when I read it I said to myself -‘I can answer this in some way’
Theology, or: Perspective

By David ben Alexander Theology, or: Perspective – The skeptic’s kaddish (skepticskaddish.com)
"My God's far beyond my beyond But to his presence I respond Oft He shows His love Light streams from above My beloved I'm so fond"
When we speak of those things, feelings, actions, values etc. beyond our ability or understanding, we are Earthbound – in that the bounds of ordinary expectation pass not beyond the orb upon which we live. The Author speaks of his God being far beyond his Beyond. Panentheistic.
He drops flakes of manna for me Showering generosity Towards them I swim Towards the Great Rim My tears brim So meekly
Our Author speaks as a fish in his watery orb Flakes of manna fall- for him-and he does not ask “What is it?” From within his watery orb he swims toward his Beyond, for Immanent in His glory, all giving is his nature God has come to him.
He defies imagination Gills quiver with adoration He knows ev'rything Accepts all I bring My Sea King You're the One
God is inexplicable, quivering with adoration, omniscient, omni-accepting as Neptune is king of the sea so this fish is god to him.
I am his and He is Mine – we are pantheistic or does His panentheistic Nature proclaim the Great Beyond?
