God within

i have always been drawn toward the use of the word "without" for its definition "outside" as in "the air within and the air without."

i feel perhaps the correct writing of God within should have been like this...

if you believe
God is within
then pray
to the One within
and not pray
without

i keep feeling drawn toward deep attention to the direction of prayer, the direction of communion, the direction of seeking strength and sustenance. the word "without" then brings me two meanings and speaks to me that praying without (outside) leaves me without (lacking, empty).

that's what i am feeling, anyway.
