O Light of the Beloved!
The mystery of your love is the center
of every existence,
the guiding light that dazzles the eyes,
an expanding awareness that
everything is you.
Your brilliance shines beyond the sun,
beyond the moon, the stars, and all
that decorates the skies.
All gather to behold the beauty
and depth of your glowing radiance,
your luminosity that harbors
the healing gaze of love
mingling in the spinning atoms
and particles of light.
You are the compass
of the turning world,
the well from which
the water of life is drawn.
Your breath is the purified air
the mystical sea in which we are
cleansed, renewed, and reborn
in the eternal innocence of love.
You are a refuge, a shelter,
a sanctuary, a haven of peace.
You are the stirring excitement
of the word unspoken,
the sight unseen,
the heart unopened,
the soul still unknown.
You are the seed reaching for the sun
seeking to manifest face and form and color, the fragrance and beauty
of becoming something new.
You are the ultimate lover,
the surprising intimacy of the infinite
expressing every hidden desire,
the explorer of new
and unimagined pleasure.
Your belovedness is boundless,
an eternal source of love,
leading the way to dreams made real
and to dimensions yet undreamed.
You are the blessed thrill of abundance
and all that is gratefully yet to be!
