“With flowers, with bright skies, with the divine manna of Joy in happy minds, with souls full of wisdom, with songs of the birds, with divine melodies in the hearts of men, my Beloved is calling me to retrace my footsteps to His home of peace within.”   Paramahansa Yogananda

A melody is playing

   Can you hear it?

 A song is being sung

   Are you listening?

 A symphony is chorusing

   Can you hear it Now?

 

 A picture is being painted

   Can you see it? 

 A canvas is filling

   Are you watching?

 A masterpiece is revealing

   Can you see it Now?

 

 A mind is quieting 

   Can you feel it?

 A door is opening

   Are you entering?

 A heart is overflowing 

   Can you feel it Now?

 

 A flower is blossoming

  Can you smell it?

A Fragrance is wafting

   Are you catching it?

An aroma is beckoning

  Can you smell it Now?

 

The fruit has yielded

  Can you taste it?

A Divine ideation

  Are you savoring it? 

A sweetness so intoxicating

  Can you taste it Now?

 

With flowers and fruit

  Bright skies and sunshine

With Divine manna of Joy

  And  soul full Wisdom

A path has been made

 Retrace your footsteps

Your Beloved is calling

   In a thousand ways

The sanctuary is prepared

  Within the Heart

Peace held within

  Come Home……Now

 

 It Is So and So It Is

“Then shall your light break forth as the morning and your health shall spring forth speedily…”  Isaiah 58:8

 

Radiant now with the Perfect Good

Breathed into Being… Alive

And at my center, Eternally well

There lies my Power to thrive

 

Uniting physical with the Divine

Quieting a small-minded view

Opening now to expanding my realm

Focusing on what is true

 

Truly I’m made in the image of Good

Truly I’ve come here to give

Truly my gifts are unique to me

Truly magnificence I live

 

There is but one circulation I know

Adding to multiply Love

Moving with rhythm, feeling the ease

This Life is lived from above

 

Above the stories that separate

Above illusions that bind

Above the darkness of ignorance

Above…it’s Light that we find

 

Now shall my radiant light break forth 

As morning’s dawn greets the day

Now shall my health spring forth with speed

For Oneness is now where I play

 

It Is So and So It Is

“However anxious you may be, you will not save yourself.  The perfect men of old first had what they wanted to do in themselves, and afterwards they found the response to it in others.”  The Texts of Taoism
I went inside, I opened
I sat, I breathed in Peace
I let the boundaries drop away
I found the sweet release
I painted lovely pictures
Great tapestries I wove
There was no limit to my dreams
It was a treasure trove
I focused my attention
On Possibility
The architect, my very Thoughts
Creating Destiny
Electric is the thinking Mind
Attention brings in Light
And darkness simply fades away
When focus does ignite
And feeling the Magnificence
This magnetism draws
Relaxed and Trusting evermore
In Life’s unyielding laws
First know yourSelf as Whole, Complete
Then Feel it in your heart
Find your response in others
Each drawn to do their part
Let Breath ignite the fire
Let Trust become Delight
Let Every circuit shimmer
Let Life express Insight
It Is So and So It Is

“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”      Rumi

 

Raise up your words

Speak from your heart

Stand on the mountaintop 

Live life as art

 

Let your words fall

Like life-giving rain

Plant well your garden

It’s your domain

 

Cultivate Self

Look first within

Listen to each word

Gently begin

 

Watch well your thoughts

For they direct Law

Let your words rain

Just who you are

 

Raise up your words

Revealing You

Seated in Mind

To this be true

 

Flowers in bloom

Gardens that yield

Plentitude alWays

Life in the Field

 

Let your breath guide

Channeled with care

Revealing Love

Yours now to share

 

Raise up your words

Speak from your heart

Stand on the mountaintop 

Live life as art

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Theirs was the fullness of heaven and earth; The more that they gave to others, the more they had.”   Kwang-Tze

 

I gaze outside to morning light

A dazzling display

Green greets my eyes in many shades

Inviting me to play

 

I laugh out loud, receiving such

A bold and clear invite

As birds play hide and seek themselves

I know the feeling’s right

 

I Breathe the breath of Happiness

A sweetness I can taste

The butterflies are calling me

I rush, yet without haste

 

I’m soaring now on gossamer wings

A full, complete release

The clarity,  the vibrancy

I rest in complete Peace

 

I shimmer with the energy

The world is draped in gold

This Love of Heaven does abide

On Earth, as we’ve been told

 

I give it freely, showering it

Like raindrops of pure Light

This given so, returns to me

Love’s sparkle, ever bright

 

This Spirit of  Thanks Giving

Is Here and Present…Now

The fullness of this Heaven/Earth

Is ours… as we Allow

 

It Is So and So it Is

So BE it

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

 

Nothing impossible

Nothing to fear

Nothing to worry on

Good ever near

 

Forget the stories

Forget the lies

Forget confusion

Good on the rise

 

Root to true substance

Reach to the sky

Drink from the waters

Good your supply

 

Born of the Spirit

Infinity’s child

Anything possible

Good now has smiled

 

Great is the Goodness

Great is the Love

Great is the Peace

As we live from above

 

Like the tree planted

Watered and fed

Flower to fruit

Goodness is spread

 

Breath is your water

Truth to the core

Anchor and follow

Good ever-more

 

It Is So and So It Is

Breathe

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…”   Proverbs 23:7

 

I’m thinking today of Abundance 

Of sunflowers turning to Light

Of the splendor in lilies that toil not

Of Plentitude filling my sight

 

 

I’m thinking today of Peace that enfolds

Of Calmness that whispers my name

Of Breathing in quiet and rippling it out

Of wrapping the earth in the same

 

 

I’m thinking today of Joy that explodes

Of fireworks in the night sky

Of whirling and spinning and laughing out loud

Of smiling without asking why

 

 

I’m thinking today of Beauty and Grace

Of seeing beyond what is known

Of touching the Infinite, in every bloom

Of asking to ever be shown

 

 

I’m thinking today of Goodness throughout

Of Limitless Love taking root

Of oak trees that rise from the tiny acorn

Of Destiny we execute

 

 

For as a man thinketh, his destiny unfolds

The Power of Thought is the key

It opens the door and invites you in

Feel Love and it simply will Be

 

 

It Is So and So It Is

So BE it
