We bless you, life

We bless you, life, with all your trials,
and boldly lift you up as you reveal yourself to us:
essential, one, inseparable and infused
with the tenderness and glory of the divine.

Source of hope and all creation, of ever-evolving exultation,
all-moving and all-powerful, guide us as we move through life.
Through struggle, isolation; through the gradual dissolving
of all we ever thought was real or true,
bring us to full participation in that seamless joy of union:
to know the ineffable Oneness that is You.

(and here concludes my riff on
Teilhard de Chardin's Hymn to Matter)
