Look to Me, and see.
Watch Me enliven all of creation—
My love, My grace
received with every in-breath,
exchanged through each exhale.
I AM, the God of Moses,
extended an invitation
to meet, human feet
upon high holy places
where heaven met earth.
I called him out,
to walk with me, talk,
not only to find Me somewhere
not to prove My exclusivity
or supernatural divinity—
I AM with nothing to prove.
I wish you could have seen his face!
The glory of God upon him
transmitting Light from Me
to Moses to others—
outreach to the people!
But they were transfixed.
for twinkles of light,
residue rather than coming to the source…
distanced from Me and My nature,
I long for you to know Me, and gain My heart
no longer the hard-to-grasp Mountaintop God
that only appreciates accomplishment…
I AM when you lose footing and slide
I AM when you encounter the wild and hide
I AM when you lose faith,
dried up and blistered by wind and sun.
I AM with you, long before summit
informing you, I just keep talking…
about radical, inclusive love.
As you come to know Me for who I AM
My presence becomes your countenance!
You arrive at the mountaintop,
are gifted the big reveal:
I was in you all along,
You reside in Me!
This is the insight that brings unity;
empathy for your sister
oneness with your brother.
My people, discover Me in one another
heaven on earth.
