The Beloved is All in All
I find myself longing for simplicity. I stepped out in the dark of the moon the past few nights. I feel the presence of the Beloved and that is enough. I am rejuvenated and refreshed. Who is the Beloved? He is God many and yet one. One Divine Essence and Energy filling all things.. personal and impersonal. There are so many ways I experience the Beloved, and each one precious. I do not need elaborate liturgies, as beautiful as many of them are. I often simply walk in the sun or moonlight and thus fulfill my vows as priest and a simple monk. I can light a candle and feel the Beloved's presence. I am thankful for these simple graces..a thousand simple graces...and this is enough. Perhaps this is what the Gospel of Thomas was talking about all along and I missed what was right in front of my face.
