What is God’s name?

This morning, I was meditating on something I learned recently from a rabbi. She told me that the name for God, YHWH, sounds like one cycle of breath. Try it:

Breath in deeply “YYYYHHHHHHH”
Exhale completely “WWHHHH”

Our breath is the name of God and the name of God is our breath.
