you are not a noun

Posted on

The Beloved is not a noun. It is a verb, it is being-ness constantly unfolding. It is am-ness itself. In this same way, at this same level, you too are not a noun but a process unfolding. You too are the Beloved, the energetic such-ness to which so much devotional literature, poetry, and scripture refer when attempting to express personal experiences of the sacred.
