God is love

         God is love.
                   —1 John 4.8

God is not just a loving being—
some nice guy in heaven—
God is love itself;
God is being itself.
Love is God.
The energy of loving,
the act of loving,
the happening of love,
that is God.
When you love someone,
that is God happening.

Loving creates being,
creates the world,

sustains everything, infuses everything,
vibrates in everything.
God loving someone
calls them into being.
Their being (our being)
is the emanation of love,
outpouring of God,
unfolding of Loveliness.

Beloved, faith is not thinking
the right things about God.
It’s receiving love,
radiating loveliness,
and spreading love.
It is that alone that we practice.

Praise to the Holy Trinity:
the Lover, and the Beloved,
and the Loving that flows between.
