This I believe..

The eyes of one who is truly 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, as we surrender 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.

We call this presence 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,

constant force of Love as speech melts on your tongue

into the divine wine of a breath of sweetened silence,

and you will know you are not 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 as the flashing lightning

in the eyes of God seem to be delighting in us!

Our beingness flares into flames

from the fire that fuels the creative current of light

that illuminates the world.

The water that sustains us pours from the well

of the seas and oceans and rivers and lakes that rise

and fall from the sky as clear and glowing rain, as a single

divine 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.

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 then 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 weaknesses,

so we pretend to know what we cannot truly 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 an exalting love beyond your dreams!

We are blessed beyond belief.

A tiny little butterfly that 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

that will grace the earth with light and dance the unbelievable joy

of love and life that is ours through Grace…
