“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”  Rumi

Like the rose that emerges from the bush full of thorns

Like snowflakes of crystalline form

Like the mountain stream bursting its banks to be free

I am changing, becoming much more

Like the sun that is rising and chasing the dark

Like the ocean waves washing the shore

Like the clouds holding treasures of water within

I am changing, becoming much more

Being clever I’ve noticed the things that are wrong

And at times they have captured the view 

Today I am wiser and gazing within

Transforming, becoming the True

Like the caterpillar melting, to dance on the breeze

Like apple seeds held in the core

Like the acorn that yields to the mighty oak

I am changing, becoming much more

It Is So and So It Is

” And the Kingdom of Heaven is within you; and whosoever shall know himself shall find it.  Strive therefore to know yourselves, and ye shall be aware that ye are the sons of the …Father; and ye shall know that ye are in the City of God, and ye are that City.” Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, words of Jesus the Christ
I wake in the City, aglow with true light
I open my eyes, enJOYing New Sight 
 
The colors are brilliant, they spill into me
They waken my senses, they color me Free
The sounds become music, celestial refrain
They pulse through my body, they dance in my brain
The smells have a fragrance of sweetness and Love
Filling each breath, reveal Peace from above
The air in the City is rarified, pure
It breathes me with Grace, it’s gentle and sure
I wake in the City, and here I remain
My travels, adventures that promise me gain
The City within builds the City without
The Light in the darkness, eternal no doubt
 It Is So and So It Is

” Sin is an obstruction in the heart; an inability to feel and comprehend all that is noble, true and great, and to take part in the good. If man is to be free from sin, his mind and heart must be opened to the influence of enlightenment.” The Talmud

I see a path within the woods

A light that’s glowing bright

It beckons me to walk this way

It promises delight

No longer tripping on myself

No longer feeling fear

I walk this way and soon I see

All Goodness is right here

I sit now in an open glade

My breath now leading me

This spaciousness a calm reprieve 

My heart is beating free

There’s Beauty in these woods and glades

I’ve come here to explore

Discovering this place in me

Reached through an open door

With heart wide open, mind set free

I twirl, I sing, I dance

I move with Peace, wheree’r I go

I live magnificence

I walk this path, within the woods

I comprehend what’s True

It’s Goodness that is born to Life

It’s Oneness that’s in view

It Is So and So It

” There is naught whatsoever higher than I…All this is threaded on Me, as rows of pearls on a string.”   The Bhagavad-Gita

I’m stringing a necklace of all that I see

I’m choosing the pearls Divine

I’m seeing life Now, the Truth revealed

It’s Beauty and Love that I find

I’m stringing a necklace of all that I feel

I’m diving in the ocean of Bliss

I’m allowing the sand to become the pearl

It’s Joyous remembering this

I’m stringing a necklace of all that I know

I’m polishing the pearls with release

I’m holding them up now to catch the light

It shimmers with deepening Peace

I’m stringing a necklace of all of the All

I’m wearing it day and night

I’m keeping the pearls ever close to my heart

It’s Truth at the center of Light

It Is So and So It Is

” I see humanity now as one vast plant, needing for its highest fulfillment only love, the natural blessings of the great outdoors, and intelligent crossing and selection.”Luther Burbank
In Love you’ll find the answer
For questions as they sprout
Like plants that seek the sunlight
It’s Love they need, not doubt
While fear is hiding in the corner
Shrouded in the dark
Love comes forward, as a Light
And fear leaves not a mark
Breath will calm the thinking mind
Allowing in the Light
Now sprouting questions open
Find Love a welcome sight
Just as the sprout loves sunlight
And gentle rains to grow
Our questions are no different
And Love will guide, we know
In Love you’ll find the answer
For questions as they sprout
Like plants that seek the sunlight
It’s Love they need, not doubt
It Is So and So It Is

“Again, the kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field; which when a man hath found, he hideth; and for joy thereof goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field.”  Matthew 13:44

The kingdom of Heaven, a treasure within

Carefully placed in the Field

Discovering this treasure, unlocking the chest

We experience a life that is Real

The kingdom of Heaven, a treasure within

No searching outside, and no strain

Just breathe and look inward, now ask and receive 

All manner of jewels you will gain

There’s pearls of wisdom, strung to wear

There’s diamonds of brilliance and light

There’s a heart of gold that knows all good

There’s peace shining silvery bright

The kingdom of Heaven, a treasure within

Carefully placed in your Field

Discover your treasure, unlock your chest

Experience your life that is Real

It Is So and So It Is

So Be It

” For all things proceed out of this same spirit, which is differently named love, justice,…, just as the ocean receives different names on the several shores which it washes.”  Emerson

Awash with Love

I am bathed in a world of Goodness

Carried on the waves of Kindness

I glide through Life with Ease and Grace

Ignited with Joy 

I am aglow in a world of Goodness

Shimmering on the rays of Freedom

I light my Life with Passion and Enthusiasm

The names may change

God, Source, Universal intelligence

Atman, Allah, Wakan Tanka 

The attributes remain steadfast

Love, Beauty, Joy, Peace

Kindness, Trust, Gratitude, Compassion

I wake to the world of Goodness

I walk the path of Peace

I stand in unconditional Love

I speak the words of Truth

I laugh with contagious Joy

I see magnificent Beauty

 It Is So and So It Is
