You are loved.
You are accepted, held in a vast embrace. There is nothing in you, nothing of character or tendencies, race or sexuality, accomplishment or failure that is not held, not needed. You are a child of God. That which you are is deeply wanted. You are not alone, not left to your own devices. There is more going on than can be seen.
You belong to an activity that is beyond comprehension. Trust it. You are known. That which you have sought is seeking you. That which you want to offer life is greatly needed. You may not yet know what it is, but it is exactly the right gift and only yours to give. Give it.
You are part of a great leap of loving such as the world has never known. You have work to do. Begin it.
There is only one ancient and forever work of art: the slow fashioning of life and the gradual flowering of Love. Find your way. Find your companions. Give your life to Love. The world sings in its many voices, “Do you love me?” It stumbles across your path a hundred times a day. Respond.
Be bread. Be broken. Let go of what you know. Find in your heart what your mind can’t comprehend. Moment by moment . . . place by place . . . person by person . . . wound by wound. Dance! Fall! Fail! You will be busy, but not with the busyness of the world.
In the heart of you lies Love. Without your opposition, it shines through you.
You have only to let yourself be held in the larger embrace, let yourself be loved, let yourself be known as you are—and you will be lit up. Thomas Merton said, “There’s no way of telling people they’re walking around shining like the sun.”
You are a shining. You are not only the small being who wants to be safe. You are Love.
