Holy One, Root of Being,
you are not distant, but within me.
You are the core of my self;
you are the stem and I am the flower.
You are the love from which I radiate.
You are heart and nerve, and I am your flesh.
You know my pain; you walk each step;
you understand my mistakes from the inside.
You are the treasure within me
I have not yest discovered.
You are Presence itself: here, in this moment
and at the bottom of the sea:
happy, I am within you;
depressed, I am still in your heart.
I can’t hide from you, who live in my unconscious.
My awareness is the tip of your iceberg.
I flow from you like light from a flame;
you create me in each breath.
I do not understand this mystery
I simply celebrate your grace.
I open my eyes to see;
I open my heart to receive you.
My life is praise. I sing
with humility, gratitude and joy.
