When two people relate to each other authentically and humanly,
God is the electricity that surges between them
Who are you?
I am not sure I know, but I’d like to!
I’d like to know what makes you tick
How you think, what you feel
What you a passionate about,
What gets you up in the morning
Who am I?
I’d like you to know!
At least I think I do.
I’d like you to know what I love
What is going on in my monkey brain
What I fear
I am not talking about playing it safe here
Being real is never safe
And when two people actually make a connect
That is authentic and vulnerable
It can be rather shocking!
Sometimes it stings
Sometimes it hurts
But when the current flows
Call it electricity
Call it love
Call it God
And we are transformed
We are changed from encapsulated egos
Fearful and striving
Into beings bound together by something big
That which is immanent and transcendent
Becomes intimate and finite
I and It
Becomes I and Thou
“I” and “me”
And Sacred becomes real
In our connection with one another
We don’t need theology
We don’t need earthly power
We don’t need border walls
We don’t need a booming stock market
We need each other
For it is in love of other another
That the kingdom comes
