Grace and Peace to you.
He was transfigured before them,
and his face shone like the sun,
and his clothes became dazzling white.
From the cloud a voice said,
“This is my Own, my Beloved;
with him I am well pleased.”
—Matthew 17. 2, 5
You are God’s Beloved.
Let it be so.
That’s how you become pure light.
What was brilliant in Jesus
was simply God’s pleasure
radiating in him.
Open your heart to God’s desire for you
like light pouring into a room,
like silence receiving a bird song.
God’s love for you
burns like a bonfire in you.
How do you put that under a bushel?
It’s not arrogant to bask
in God’s delight in you.
How stuck up it would be
to spurn the Beloved’s ardent passion!
Lie down and let God make love to you.
See? Even as you blush reading this
you begin to glow.
Become the Beloved,
and like a youth in love
you will be transfigured
with the light of God.
