Oh, the prophets from long ago have spoken the truth of God’s love.
The burning heart of the Divine in them is the same burning heart of the Divine in you and me.
The joy and the pain of knowing Divine love does not change from generation to generation. For the singular Beloved Self who lived within the prophets is a carbon copy of the Beloved Self living within all… that wants to simmer and sizzle, glow and grow…just the same.
A heart once pierced and stung by God’s love…rejoices with the same uplifting cheers and weeps the same heart swelling tears.
The fragile human heart cannot keep contained the immense light and love that God has to offer. Divine Love must escape and fly out of the mouths of those who know.
For God desires all human hearts to feel and know that He is the Sacred living presence within all.
Rise and Shine Beloved Self, let “me” clothe and feed “You” a breakfast… in the bed of my being.
On the menu is a feast…beginning with a big bowl of my belief…served alongside a sunny side up order of my encouragement.
Let “me” nourish “You”… Divine Self …with a stack of my support…topped with my love and dusted with my devotion. Drink from the bottomless cup of my confidence…sweetened with a teaspoon of my affirmation and a splash of my surety.
All of this…I present to you, Sacred Self, on the finest silver tray of my trust.
“Grow strong innermost Divine Beloved…I will take care of your needs… so you can rise and fulfill all the needs of the world”
“Forgive me, Beloved, if I am blind to your ways…help me to see with your enlightened eyes…show me for I am yours”
I want to be open to all and any of the possibilities that God wants to share with me. Help me to be present to receiving His glorious gifts and fill me with inspiration as to His Heavenly will. Keep me aware…keep me awake…help me surrender to the path that He is preparing.
“I don’t want to only be my physical persona anymore… I want you, Divine Beloved…to be you…through me”
Keep me near…and prune away my forgetfulness…of the Divine that lives within. Do not let my absentmindedness of you…overcome me.
Keep me united and intertwined in the embrace of your branches…and remind me daily that my true being is an extension of you.
From God’s very self…springs forth the hidden and unseen ring of infinite life. This essence, this life sustaining sap, of the Divine…that is concealed within the universal tree…is the life of the Beloved…that’s shared by all of humanity.
“The Divine omnipresent breath of the Beloved is the true vine of eternity … flowing within you and me”
Oh, how does one say what is on the tip of thy tongue? Trapped in thy mouth are words of the Divine Beloved self…hidden revelations that one can’t seem to express. Oh, the Wonder of how to speak these truths…one is struck dumb in their presence. Not from lack of understanding but the Awesomeness of Truth renders one speechless.
How does one condense into a few words eternal truth? How does one use human speech to express a singular mystery unchanged since creation?
But the word God is the seed…and the mouth is the soil. The offshoot of the seed is the heavenly tongue of the Beloved… who’s native celestial language wants to burst outward into the daylight. Allowing the fruit of the hidden Divine to ripen and continue in the fulfillment of it’s purpose. Those who elect and partake of the fruit taste God’s glory. They have encountered the Beloved and when ready…they too will be the flowering plant who’s fruit is God.
The Beloved’s heart..once perfected and complete, won’t remain idle in the confines of the flesh. For it longs to break free of the ark that surrounds it… dashing off in such haste…to give all glory to it’s one true love. Trust in the heart of the Beloved…it remembers the way.
For all it really wants to do…is reunite with it’s divinity. Liberate the heart that wants to inspire itself…detach from calling it your own.
The heart in the spirit is not the beating heart… it is the fleeting heart. It is weightless…it is invisible…but it holds so much. It is a treasure chest of love, truth, wisdom, light and beauty.
This is the heart that is free to run into God’s arms and feel his embrace after it’s long journey.
Oh, that is the desire of the Beloved’s heart – to inhabit the precious seat next to it’s God. There it rests…there the Beloved fulfills it’s goal…to gaze upon and become one with it’s Creator.
God, you know me inside and out, you know my flaws and my talents. You understand my dreams and desires. You direct my path, my coming…my going. You are present in my creation, you are present in my passing. You know everything there is to know about me. You and I have loved each other from the beginning of time. We will love each other until the end of time. I can not comprehend all the love you have for me. No one or nothing can separate us. We are together always… in joy and sorrow.
If I wander away you are still near… loving me, guiding me, holding me close. If forgetfulness dims my mind, my soul still shines bright. When I suffer the spirit of unknowing, you do not flee from me. If I’m in the mindset of my beloved spirit or not, your love remains the same. I trust you, you have created me. You have protected me. I love you, I am in awe of you, I wonder at your wisdom and I am amazed by all of your creation. You have touched my soul… you knew me before anyone else. You created me from nothing. Even in my imperfection you see goodness.
I am precious to you. Your love is ecstasy…abundant is your love for me. I am awake and I remember…we are one. Take away my forgetfullness. Take away my doubt. Take away my fear. My heart aches with love for you. How can I serve you? Consume me for my soul is on fire. I raise up my heart and mind. I surrender, take me for I am yours forever.
