Minute Meditations

Yourself in God

It has been said many times that after transformation you seldom have the feeling you have found anything. It feels much more like Someone has found you! You find yourself being grabbed, being held, and being loved by Someone. At first, you do not even know what is going on. All you know is that it is a most wondrous undergoing, but an undergoing nevertheless. You do not do much yourself but, like Mary, you know something “has been done unto you” (Luke 1:38).

Finally, you allow yourself to stand before one true mirror for your identity—you surrender to the naked now of true prayer and full presence. You become a Thou before the great I AM. Henceforward, as Teresa of Avila said, “You find God in yourself and yourself in God.”
