Beholding the Glory of the Lord

What is the glory of the Lord that Paul (II Corinthians 3:18) referred to, and how does beholding it trusform us?  First the glory of the Lord denotes the presence of God and all that He is in all of His attributes – His infiniteness, eternalness, holiness, sovereignty, goodness, etc.  In other words, God is glorious in all of His being and all of His works.
