The Beloved dwells in the Holy Temple, the sacred altar within our hearts
In the Beloved do I make my retreat.
How can you say to me,
“Flee like a bird to the
for lo, the unloving bend the bow,
fitting their arrow to the string;
they aim to destroy what is good?”
If the foundations of goodness are
undermined, what will remain?
The Beloved dwells in the Holy Temple,
the sacred altar within our hearts,
loving and testing each one of us.
Divine Love offers both the good
and the unloving opportunities
to grow, to become whole,
enduring with Love those who
choose the way of darkness.
Those who walk in the ego’s illusions
will live with fear and doubt;
ignorance will be their guide.
For our Creator is just, gifting us
with free will;
Those who walk in the Light
will behold the Beloved’s face
in everyone they meet.
