” The ideals that have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth.”  Albert Einstein
 
Kindness rose up with the dawn
It woke me from my sleep
It blanketed my consciousness
It’s warmth was soft and deep
 
And Beauty arrived painting
With brushes tipped in gold
It washed my room in Gladness
It’s shimmer rich and bold
 
My heart lifted by Gratitude
Enthusiasm burst
And Joy was dancing freely
As Peace now quenched my thirst
 
For Love was in the atmosphere
And Magnificence took hold
This Life’s a Masterpiece for each
It’s Light, The Truth be told
 
It Is So and So It Is

“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.”        Lao Tzu

 

To walk the open road

To journey far and wide

To climb the highest peak

With Goodness at your side

 

The road will change directions

The journey will unfold

The climb will move through valleys

“Have Courage”, you’ll be told

 

This is a road to savor

A journey worth your time

A climb that’s awe-inspiring

With Peace, you’ll know Divine

 

Walk roads quite unfamiliar

No journey’s set in stone

Don’t focus on arrival

With Love, you’re traveling home

 

It Is So and So It Is

” All is the effect of all, one universal Essence.”  Brihad Aranyakas Upanishad

 

 

The ocean spreads before me

A wide expansive sea

Dive in, I tell myself again

Go deep and become Free

 

And in these depths of Wonder

With Silence beckoning

The whispers of Eternity

Invite my listening

 

One Universal Essence

Is at the heart of All

Allow these Peaceful waters

To wash away the walls

 

The walls of separation

Locked in, without a door

The walls that fear built hopelessly

Illusions evermore

 

The walls built to protect you

From an enemy unknown

The walls, now prison to your Soul

Fall down, as water washes stone

 

Emerging from the ocean

The Pearl of Wisdom held

Within my heart, Love’s opening

Inspired and compelled

 

One Universal Essence

The All, ever at hand

Its Presence never absent

This is the Promised Land

 

It Is So and So It Is

“He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season, his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper. “ Psalm 1:3

 

The acorn falls on fertile ground

It sprouts and seeks the sun

Tiny roots are taking hold

New life has just begun

 

The soil rich and giving

The water full of life

Rooted now and growing

It overcomes all strife

 

The tiny seedling stretches

As seasons come and go

It broke its shell to now become

The mighty oak we know

 

All greatness is encoded

Within our very core

Break free, take root and flourish

Breathe now, and live for more

 

Magnificence, your birthright

Brilliance shining through

Expand your Goodness daily

To your own Self be true

 

As it was in the beginning

Shall be forever more

The seed that’s planted yielding

More Truth than ’twas before

 

It Is So and So It Is

So BE It

” Yea, thou shalt not find any variableness in the way of God.”  The Koran

 

Patterns that move through the ages of time

Steady and true to their course

Creation unending and birthing anew

Revealing a Powerful force

 

The Sun ever-rising from out of the East

And steadily climbing above

Then setting aflame the view in the West

Unchangeable labor of Love

 

The Stars set like diamonds across the vast sky

Giving Light, where once there was none

In a rhythm that’s ageless, the Moon joins the dance

No variableness in the ways of the One

 

The butterfly lifting on breezes that Free

Transcending an earth-bound cocoon

The melting and mingling of  the old and the new

To Life’s rhythm completely attune

 

My consciousness wakes, my heart opens wide

I’m seeing where once I was blind

The rhythms and patterns Unyielding and True

Surrendering to Love, I’ve aligned

 

Patterns that move through the ages of time

Steady and true to their course

Creation unending and birthing anew

Revealing One Powerful force

 

It Is So and So It Is

“So likewise thou in all thy speech

Swerve never from the path of Truth”   Buddhism in Translation

 

The Path of Truth invites me

To step upon in Now

To walk it daily, Know it

To let it show me how

 

To tune my mind to Goodness

To fill my heart with Love

To walk it daily, Know it

To live life from above

 

Above the fears and worries

Above the pettiness

To walk it daily, Know it

To discard emptiness

 

The Path of Truth invites me

To step upon in Now

To walk it daily, Know it

To let it show me how

 

To sing and dance with Freedom

To laugh at Life out loud

To walk it daily, Know it

To Feel that I’m allowed

 

Allowed to Be Magnificent

Allowed to have it all

To walk it daily, Know it

As Blessings ever fall

 

The Path of Truth invites me

To step upon in Now

To walk it daily, Know it

To this I take a vow

 

To Breathe into my center

To let Peace speak my word

To share Love freely, Know it

Let only Truth be heard

 

It Is So and So It Is

So BE It

“Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.”  Philippians 2:2

 

The stream of Love is flowing

And Harmony is known

From mountaintops to ocean

The Field of Love is grown

 

Love’s essence is the substance

Of Life, it is the song

It strikes the note of Unity

In Love we do belong

 

As Love becomes our everything

And Joy fills every space

The energy of Goodness

And Love is our embrace

 

Love’s blessings fall like raindrops

As Peace washes us clean

Transcendent Beauty fills our world

One Love that is serene

 

With Love, become like-minded

And be of One accord

The One Mind is the Mind of Love

One Love, we are restored

 

It Is So and So It Is
