To experience divine love is to recognize the presence of divinity everywhere—divinity as love, as a presence, as radiance. It’s like the soft, golden light that you see when sunlight comes into a room in the late afternoon. Take that quality of golden light and then imagine it actually shining out of all the objects around you, including people’s physical bodies, so that they look as if they are nothing but the substance of this light. They are glowing with its beauty. It’s an exquisite kind of perception, an exquisite way of being.
