I Say Yes
Today I say yes to being the medium
through which God is revealed.
Today I accept that…
I am both the beloved who is other,
somehow separate and distant enough from God
to be in relationship with God,
separate enough to be cherished
for the unique person I am,
separate enough to be free (at least potentially)
to be the delight of God.
I exist within God,
the core of my existence is God,
separation is impossible,
anything I may label as mine (even consciousness)
exists in communion with God.
For God not to love me would mean that
God would not love Godself.
God and I have the same DNA.
I breathe in God.
I breathe out God.
I am the breath of God
and God is the breath of me.
I say yes to my limitations
that narrow my consciousness,
that inhibit my cooperation,
that prevent God from being more completely revealed.
I say yes to God’s glory,
evident through my goodness,
I say yes to the mystery,
of constant invitation,
life without beginning or ending,
concurrent suffering and rejoicing,
the completeness of the present moment,
I say yes to love,
and myself as the revelation of God!
