Bearing the Light of Being
Bearing the Light of Being

I do not have to be better than you have made me,
For you have created me in your image
And there is perfection in this promise.
But I do have to bear what you would make of me,
If I wish to know my maker.

Perhaps the greatest, yet least understood spiritual secret in the World is that being what I am is what it takes to make me better; Because only within what I am
Is what **you* would have me be . . .
And nothing can surpass this desire, nor exceed its fulfillment.

And what is difficult in this task is not just in being what I am,
For all being is natural in itself
And what is natural is necessarily easy.

No, the toil is in bearing what I am
So that I may no more be that,
For it is only in learning to bear myself
That I am given birth, that I am able to witness
A whole new order of being that rises to praise its creator,
And that glorifies His creation again and again Through its willing sacrifice.
