Let yourself receive

“And let yourself receive the one who is opening to you so deeply. For if we genuinely love him, we wake up inside Christ’s body, where all our body, all over, is realized in joy as him. He makes us utterly real. And everything that is hurt, everything that seemed dark, shameful, maimed, ugly, irreparably damaged, is in him transformed, and recognized as whole, as lovely and radiant. We awaken as the Beloved in every last part of our body.”
-Symeon the New Theologian
