When looking deeply into the face of God
Not only do we fall in love
We drown in love –
And, then, become Love.
Rising up past the material world
We step beyond the animal in us –
Beyond the human in us –
Even the angel in us
And become a “true” human being –
Someone God decides is worthy to inhabit.
It’s that “face” of God we’ve all been searching for –
So we leap into it and become it –
Entering into the world of God’s Love.
It’s the face we put on when looking at others
To demonstrate love beyond everyday human love –
God’s love –
Which opens up even to “enemies”
Who no longer qualify as that
Since God (and, now, we)
No longer have enemies.
It’s a short jump
Even if an almost infinite leap –
From being a regular human being
Into someone who embodies God.
