Saying For Today: And you might say, "What must I do to let this happen?" And I say, "Nothing." Does anything else in all Nature have to do to be what it is?
LOTUS OF THE HEART
Living in LOVE beyond Beliefs
We Share One Life, We Are One Life
You are a revelation, a much as any holy book or holy place. You are a breathing unveiling of splendorous Grace.
My eyes moved through the books, I opened one. And opening, the words spoke resoundingly, "We long to expose ourselves." I felt the truth. The longing spoke through me. I tasted the bliss, the joy of exposure. I see the return to "Eden" is a return to the bliss of letting myself be seen, really seen, not with the eyes of matter but the eyes of Spirit. To be open, naked, and seen is the deep yearning of the human, reverberating in all our false paths to intimacy. Spirituality, then, is not about hiding so to be safe from being seen, but about coming out of hiding. This does not mean trusting everyone, telling all, but this does mean being moved through the fear into the naked revelation of who you truly are. Then, you do not need to try to be yourself or prove to anyone you are yourself, for you know you are, and that is enough, that is Fullness. Those with eyes to see will see the grace of the Light shining through your grand and joyful humbleness. Do not try to be seen, simply relax into the joy of be-ing. What does this have to do with Love? Well, do you want an illusion of you to be loved, or you? Would you not rather be loved, than something you pretend to be to be loved? I prefer the risk of being exposed.

In trying to be yourself, you negate yourself. In letting yourself come forth as yourself, you are seen to be you. Does the Sun try to be the Sun? You see the Light, and you see the Sun. Others see your Effulgence, and they see "God". Grace clothes Itself with you. Now, why not let the Light fearlessly shine through you and as you, in an intimacy sublime and indescribable? And you might say, "What must I do to let this happen?" And I say, "Nothing." Does anything else in all Nature have to do to be what it is?
