Peace & Blessings

” I will bless The Lord at all times, his praise shall continuously be in my mouth.” Psalm 34:1
Today it is Praise that sings through me
Melodies sweet and clear
Today it is Blessings that chorus throughout
Harmonies drawing me near
Today it is Praise that speaks through me
Telling a story that frees
Today it is Blessings that write the tale
Inviting limitless Peace
Today it is Praise that touches my heart 
Expanding my limited view
Today it is Blessings that shower me
Washing me, making life new
Today it is Praise that lifts me up
Igniting a fire within
Today it is Blessings that light my way
Whispering ” Now begin”
It Is So and So It Is

“That which God said to the rose, and caused it to laugh in full-blown beauty, He said to my heart, and made it a hundred times more beautiful.”  Rumi
The petals Rich and Welcoming
The fragrance Sweet and Pure
The colors, woven Ecstasy
Of Love that does endure
This kiss of Beauty in our lives
This Passionate refrain
Does open up our eyes to see
And Love greets us again
Our hearts are temples, pulsing Love
With every beat it’s there
The Beauty and the Ecstasy
Its Goodness we may share
Enter the garden, Breathe the air
Expand your Love and Feel
Scatter the petals as you go
The life of Love is Real
God spoke it to the rose you see
The laughter rang out Love
Now spoken to my Heart and Soul
Sparks Goodness from above
It Is So and So  it Is

“Your daily life is your temple and your religion. When you enter into it take with you your all. ”  Khalil Gibran
Magnificence rising from earth to sky
Freedom that breathes pure air
Living my life and giving my all
Opens me, bids me to dare
Goodness and Grace lift up the clouds
Peace running silent and deep
Feeling my life, reflections within
Clears me, allows me to leap
Love flowing down and cascading
Beauty that washes and clears
Seeing my life as a wonder
Inspires me, dispelling fears
My life, my temple, my religion
Eternity, landed in time
Being mySelf, bringing my all
Transforms me, reveals the Divine
 It Is So and So It Is

“He who is happy within, who rejoiceth within, who is illuminated within, that Yogi, becoming the eternal, goeth to the Peace of the eternal.” The Bhagavad-Gita

Happiness, seated within us right Now

It needs no condition, no well-defined how

It simply resides there, awaiting our call

Happiness stands ready to give of the All

Rejoice and give voice to the Joy that’s within 

It bursts at your seams, it wants to begin 

It quivers, it tickles, it rocks and it shakes

Joy’s Eternal song, is all that it takes

Light that does shine, like the noonday sun

It only gets brighter, once you’ve begun

It dispels the darkness, exposes the fear

Illumined with vision from All, fully clear

Within there is Happiness, Joy and Light

Within there is Love that burns ever-bright

Revealing a Peace, that words cannot tell

Forever, unending, an Eternal well

Becoming the Eternal, a journey to Peace

Going within, allowing release

Transcendent qualities setting you free

Breathe now, listen, then simply Be

It Is so and So It Is

So Be It

“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
