In “this world” Christ is a noun, an object, another.2
In “my Kingdom” Christ is a living Presence, “closer than breathing, nearer than hands and feet”.3
“Glory” is the is the Presence of God, the unhindered generous flow and expression of Life, of Love, of synchronicity and harmony.

2 Corinthians 3:17
