Our Shine Your Light newsletter can help you stay aligned in today's changing world. Yes, Please!
The eyes of the one in love with God
are lost in the brilliance of seeing the beauty for which our sight was created!
We have been formed to share the glory of the infinite One
out of whom we are rising into whoever we are longing to become!!
All is shining out from the hidden places within us
and suddenly, we feel the trembling and tender touch of the One
who dwells within us, and we fall into the miracle of love,
and the recognition swells into a symphony
of divine music and arias of a thousand hearts
that flow out in a chorus of songs across the world
in every language!
May the sacred music of love bring us to our knees
before this holy belovedness.
Call this Allness, or Godness, or a thousand different names
and declare a thousand beliefs that claim to know
the Nature of such an omniscient and thrilling Lover,
and your speech will melt on your tongue
into the divine wine of a breath of sweetened silence,
and you will know you are not even able to utter a word or speak on your own.
We are caught up in the whirlwinds of loving,
humbled and frightened by arms that sweep us into
the exploding magnificence of the stars,
as the changing face of the skies are reflecting
the blushing of divine ecstasy
and the flashing lightning in the eyes of God delighting in us!
Our beingness flares into flames
from the fire that fuels the current of light
that illuminate the world.
The water that sustains us pours from the well
of the seas and oceans and rivers and lakes that fall
from the sky as clear and glowing rain,
and a single gaze creates a sun to shine upon all that exists.
What fools begin to strut around pretending to be little gods
and kings who want to rule a kingdom of their own,
when all we have been given is the pure grace
of a God who wants to give us joy!
We have been set free by this great love
and now, with the awe and surprise of our astonished eyes,
we are being courted in ways we could never have dreamed.
No handful of posies from a nervous suitor at our door,
but fields of flowers of every color spread out before us blossoming
and blooming and changing before our eyes.
No bottle of wine to blot out our fears,
but the wine of a love flooding our senses exciting and inviting us to
surrender into sheltering arms.
Gaze at this earth and reflect for one brief moment
of the miraculous way a single hand works,
or awaken to the brilliance of sight and all we behold,
breathe in the rich scent of the earth rising after a rain.
Savor the taste of a divine kiss lingering sensuously
on our lips as the wine of the grapes
of a thousand vineyards leave us trembling in the fragrance
and the clarity of glistening beauty ripened by the sun
and then simply try to speak as one who knows anything!
Listen to a thousand birds each singing a different song
as the dawn breaks to reveal a day that has never been before
since the beginning of time!
Hear the whisper of a breeze tickling and talking in your ear,
feel it ruffling your hair,
slipping beneath your clothes to touch your skin,
feel the sensuous water kissing your feet with waves
that roll in to touch the shores of your being,
and tell me our Creator is not a Beloved who loves us
with a Greatness we cannot begin to fathom in a thousand years!
It is frightening to be so loved when we know our weakness,
so we pretend to know what we cannot understand!
Try to create a single butterfly and see how much you know!
Oh my brothers and sisters, we are One family of a God
who created us for each other, and we are loved beyond anything
we ever could imagine!
Fall into the beauty of arms that will hold you
next to the great heart of a Lover beyond your dreams.
We are blessed beyond belief.
A tiny little butterfly can flash its beauty
with a flutter of wings, has more grace than we do,
can fly, and has the sense to sip the sweetness
from a flowering world!
Awaken to the Love that surrounds you, that flows within your veins,
and feel the flow of the river rushing through you that carries the seeds
that can become a totally new and amazing human being to grace the earth
and dance the unbelievable joy of love and life that is ours!
