“You shine like the sun,” and now we can truly see it!

Many mystics and even some ordinary types have seen it, and Thomas Merton wrote perhaps the most famous description of it:

“There is no way of telling people that they are all walking around shining like the sun.”

Take three minutes to watch the video.

Your day just got better, right? Right.
