So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.
Better than life
Grant us spacious places, Holy One,
where our hearts roam free,
where the chattering mind
quiets, where consciousness is but
a blank, an empty screen, calm,
waiting for thought, image, emotion
to appear from hidden depths, telling
us what is deep within, waiting,
eager to be born, to live, in us, inviting
us to know the joy of being
who we truly are, expressions
of your holy love, given
to earth that Love may live,
that Beauty may shine, breathing
life through our lives, always
more precious than we know.
Each one, every one, unique, appointed
for a holy purpose, to speak, to shine
with the Love who is better than life.
Go now, into your day, every day
knowing the Love you seek … seeks
you. Earth and stars, the sanctuary
of the Illimitable, bid you open
your heart to see and know and
enter the ecstatic praise of the angels.
Pr. David L. Miller
