Mask of God

Read it in an interview today...
attributed to Martin Buber
Nothing is so apt to mask the face of God as religion. 
Know not in what context or for what reason Buber makes this statement, but it certainly has a relevant and meaningful message to convey.  More often than it would like to acknowledge, religion often masks God.  In a way it is helps for a beginner but not for one who really wants to get close to God.  The very initial step becomes the stumbling block for further steps.  Letting go of something so comforting and known, in exchange for uncertainty is very discomforting and a risk which faith is all about.
