“The Infinite is the source of joy. There is no joy in the finite. Only in the Infinite is there joy. Ask to know the Infinite. “             Chandogya Upanishad


I woke with Joy this morning

I felt it to my core

The rose Light of the new dawn

Was promising me more


More Beauty than these eyes have known

More Peace than breath yet breathed

More Love than this heart’s opened to

More Joy than I’ve conceived


I rose with Joy accompanying me

I felt it bubbling up

This inner wellspring washed me

It filled my Loving cup


It filled and kept on giving

It filled and overflowed

It filled and became boundless

It filled and time was slowed


The Infinite, the source of Joy

Awoke and rose in me

And in this Heaven, I found Joy

The Infinite set free


It Is So and So It Is

“The perfect man, along with other men, gets his food from the earth and derives his joy from his Heaven.”  Kwang-Tze


The secret place of the most high

The chamber within each

The sanctuary where Love lies

Forever within reach


The land of Divine Harmony

The Kingdom housing Peace

The household of ecstatic Joy

Where Beauty does not cease


Living in this house of God

All Goodness does abound

From dreams that separate, you wake 

Perfection now is found


Your food provided by the earth

Abundance is the yield

For each and all to sow and reap

Revealing now the Field


The invitation’s written

For all humanity

Step into Heaven, here abide

EnJoy Eternity


It Is So and So It Is

“Now when the thought of doing good has arisen in man’s mind, though the good be not yet done, the good Spirits are in attendance on him.”  The Texts of Taoism
Goodness awoke me this morning at dawn
Bringing a golden key
As Peace entered quickly and settled the space
Promise was easy to see
Now Grace descended and stillness was draped
Shimmering veils of Light
Faith, in things not seen was rising to speak
Hope nodded gently, “That’s right”
Wisdom was present, smiling and calm
As Patience took it all in
Beauty and Joy were laughing out loud
Kindness said, “You can begin”
Taking the key, I opened the door
Love took my hand and led
Truth followed us with Clarity near
Knowing, had gone on ahead
Anchoring true thoughts with Plentitude
Feeling them already done
Singing with Praise and Gratitude
Joining with Spirit, All One
It Is So and So It Is

“Give and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together; and running over.”  Luke 6:38


I’m giving up the ancient thoughts

That hold me, frozen time

I’m giving up the useless work

Without reason, without rhyme


I’m giving up the attitude

That isolates my life

I’m giving up and getting down

To living without strife


Is something wrong?  Not really

Is something out of place?

The moon rose full and pulled the tides

The celestial dance of space


In giving up and getting down

I’m getting so much more

My Heart expands, my Mind transcends

I’m opening the door


Receiving golden messages

Whispers from within 

Spoken with a Truth I Know

ReMembering, again


Abandoning myself to Life

My gifts are flowing free

I’m giving All and circling back

More gifts emerge from Me


Pressed down and shaken, overflow

Magnificence is mine

And running over, running through

The bounty of Divine


The Wellsprings of my Being

The Fountains of my Mind

Withholding nothing, Giving

Receiving, Love I find


It Is So and So It Is

“I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.”   Psalm 13:6


With me, as me, through me Now

The Law of Life made known

A bountiful reflection of

The Mind of Good is shown


An Idea in the Mind of Good

A seed-thought cast in time

Now planted in the Open Field

It’s watered by Divine


And taking sprout, the thought does grow

A plant turned toward the Light

As blossoms bud, the thought takes form

It holds the Truth of Sight


Of dropping veils, of Clarity

From dream-states, Now awake

The fragrance of the Blessings

Like food that we partake


An idea in the Mind of Good

A rising song of Praise

And Blessings fall like petals

As Goodness Now displays


With us, as us, through us Now

Magnificent are we

When married to the Mind of Good

We live life bountifully


It Is So and So It

“Thou shalt not profess that which thou dost not believe.  Thou shalt not heed the voice of man when it agrees not with the voice of God in thine own soul.” Emerson


Committed Now, I listen

The voice of God speaks clear

Within my heart it echoes

Within my soul, it’s near


For God is at my center

A Power running through

Not seated high, outside of me

But right here, ever-new


And each one a Creation

In the Brotherhood of Man

Of Perfect Mind and Perfect Truth

This, Now I understand


Undaunted by the world’s views

Unswayed from what I feel

First listening within to God

I Know Now what is Real


This Inner Wisdom speaks to me

Ideas that will unfold

I’ve but to follow faithfully

And harvest Now Heart’s gold


These whispers from Eternity

Like golden threads, they weave

Like crystal chimes they harmonize

Committed Now, Believe


It Is So and So It Is

“The soul’s communication of truth is the highest event in nature, since it then does not give somewhat from itself but it gives itself and becomes that man whom it enlightens.”  Emerson


Truth’s knocking at my door again

It wants to share with me

Becoming fully Present

It wants to set me Free


I open wide the door of Heart

I silence words that pour

From limited beliefs and thoughts

I Now say “Yes” to more


And Peace is rising quietly

Within this space I keep

In Truth I’m clearly Knowing

That Love is what I’ll reap


A flame of consciousness, now lit

Becoming Truth in me

And darkness simply disappears

In Love’s Light, it does flee


For Love forever lives and breathes

Within, Complete and Whole 

When Truth is speaking, listen

These words are from the Soul


It Is So and So It Is
