What is the Experience of God?

Matthew Gallatin, in one of his podcasts, has an interesting question he used to ask himself before he was Orthodox: "If I ignore what I believe about my God and set aside everything that I feel about my God, what is left of my experience with God? And the answer was nothing."

I heard Mr. Gallatin make this comment as well a few months back. It has definitely stuck with me. I found it very insightful into the common Western mindset.
