The Book Of Mysteries: Defining Love

Day 3 of 3 • This day’s reading


DAY 3: Kissing God  

“What is the heart of worship?” asked the teacher.

“I don’t know.”

“I’ll give you one definition, a secret. It’s the word proskuneo. It means to kiss. True worship is to kiss. And what does that reveal? A kiss is the most intimate of acts. Therefore, worship is to be the most intimate thing you can experience.”

“To worship God is to kiss God?”

“In the spiritual realm, yes, to kiss from your heart, from your innermost being. And why does one kiss?” asked the teacher.

“Because of joy.”

“Yes,” he said, “a kiss is an expression of joy. And a kiss brings joy. So true worship is an expression of joy.”

“Teacher,” I said, “we didn’t say the most obvious.”

“Which is…?”

“One kisses because of love,” I said. “A kiss is an expression of love.”

“It is. So then what is true worship?”

“Worship is an expression of love.”

“Yes,” said the teacher, “It’s as simple as that: It’s the most intimate act of love and joy. Worship is as simple…as kissing God.”

The Mission: Today, draw near to God in worship, in love, in joy, in the deepest of intimacy. Learn the secret of kissing God.
