It moves me - is strangely heartening in fact - to think that insofar as such words have meaning for the Almighty, the one 'human emotion' God is capable of feeling is loneliness. He looks back to the days before the making of the universe, before the Law, and weeps to be free of them, and at such moments is the vault of heaven split open by wind and rain. For whatever reason, I'm moved by the idea that the one thing God is powerless to create is a being capable of understanding what He's going through. That would be the limit of omnipotence: for the Creator, the one notion that can't be manufactured from the dark matter of the mere universe is empathy.
Love doesn't require the presence or even the existence of the Other, but understanding and empathy do. I suppose I'm with Roland Barthes on at least that point: 'I love you' has a weirdly deflating quality. Maybe we invented God to justify our willingness to enter into a contract - love and devotion - to which we are the only signatory.
