Incarnation 

03/31/2017

Incarnation:

to bear and bare 

complicity 

in all that is human, 

in all that is living, 

is to descend 

down into 

every act

of alienation

and hurt

of each one

who fashions himself 

as on high, 

as god, 

as idol,

as me,

as the center 

of all meaning

and value,

is to be

just such a one 

without escape, 

without flinching, 

transparently, 

achingly. 

And incarnating so, 

not being

at all separate,

is at once 

an act 

of love, 

understanding 

and liberation,

the human

then in fact 

expressing 

the divine.
