this place


God within place
that allows for return

(Struck by the fact that the word "place" is mentioned 7 times just as Jacob "leaves." If for Abraham, the place is an unknown blank that will be shown, for Jacob it is here, this place.
The difference between the sprawling horizontal spaces--north, south, east, west, the journey for Beer Sheva to Haran--and the vertical axis of up down, which is also an axis inwards, into the dream space of the subconscious"
