Passion burns down every branch of exhaustion;

Passion’s the Supreme Elixir and renews all things;

No one can grow exhausted when passion is born!

Don’t sigh heavily, your brow bleak with boredom;

Look for passion, passion, passion, passion!     Rumi



Passion lit a fire

Love provided flame

Enthusiasm fanned it

And nothing was the same


Light was ever-present

Darkness was no more

Ideas sparked and glittered

Like stars outside my door


Peace was in the atmosphere

Joy’s current was aglow

Gratitude was pulsing

And this is what I know


When Passion burns within us

When Love Lights every day

When Joy electrifies each step

Magnificence does play


Accept the Victory of your Life

Let Inspiration lead

Allow the Wise, Still voice to speak

For this all you need


As Passion lights the fire

As Love provides the flame

As Enthusiasm fans it

Nothing will be the same


It Is So and So It is

“Blind is this world. Few are those who clearly see.”  Dhammapada


God’s eyes are my eyes now

God’s hands, my very own

The likeness and the image

Not blind, all things are known


God’s heart is my heart now

God’s Mind is speaking me

The Goodness Known as Heaven

A song of Harmony


God’s Light is my Light now

God’s vision holds my view

The Beauty and the Glory

The Life that does renew


Blind is this world without the Light

For darkness clouds the Real

In Love’s pure Light, the darkness melts 

And Goodness does reveal


God’s eyes are my eyes now

God’s hands, my very own

The likeness and the image

Not blind, all things are known


It Is So and So It Is

“Another glorious…day in which one seems to be dissolved and absorbed and sent pulsing onward we know not where. Life seems neither long nor short, and we take no more heed to save time or make haste than to do the trees and stars. This is true freedom…” John Muir


A glorious day

Of Life, ever-changing

An eye-opening experience

Of energy transforming



A dissolution of one form

An emergence of another

A pattern of evolution

The rhythm of our Mother



A breath of fresh air

A rise and a fall

A cloudburst that washes

Revealing the All



A spiritual adventure

On wings that simply soar

A pulsing onward

Into Life that is more



A path that appears

A Faith that evolves

Light of a new day

As darkness dissolves



A Joyful adventure

A promise set Free

Loving expansions

Into Eternity



It Is So and So It Is

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” Mother Teresa


Kindness knocked upon my door

I gladly opened wide

She took my hand and entered

Then sat right by my side


Her words, like Springtime in the air

Brought freshness to my heart

The dross of life transforming

To portraits of great art


She wrapped me in the melody

Harmonious and true

I danced upon the notes and rose

To heights I never knew


The room now glowing golden

Was filled with pulsing light

Revealing that my essence

Was kind and clear and bright


With Kindness I was rising

To meet the Truth of me

The Love, the Peace, the Joy that are

My true Reality


A living, kind expression

Of Goodness everywhere

From heart to face through eyes and smiles

It’s Kindness that we share


Perhaps the greatest gift of all

She whispered in my ear

She’s not a fleeting visitor

For Kindness now lives here 


Be Kind

It Is So and So It Is

“God is light and in him is no darkness at all.”   I John 1:5


The Light of Truth is in me now

My consciousness expands

I claim this Light and darkness flees

Aglow, I’m in Good hands


Now in the Light, I clearly see

The lies that long have stood

The lie of fear, the lie of lack

Light’s Truth shines only Good


Light shows a perfect pattern 

Indwelling everyone

And body serves the thoughts of Mind

The Light of Good begun


The Light of Truth is shining

And it shall never dim

Release control, another lie

Your Good is from within


The Light is bright with Knowledge

Inherent in each cell

Now trusting this, is Freedom

In Goodness, All is Well


It Is So and So It Is

“We are born of love.  Love is our Mother.”   Rumi


Mother let me lie with you

Upon the verdant green

Let gentle breezes move me

Let Goodness now be seen


Mother let me feel your heart

Pulsing everywhere

Let shimmering stars enlighten me

Let Feeling take me there


Mother let me drink with you

From crystal-sparkling streams

Let effervescence fill me

Let Wisdom guide my dreams


Mother let me eat with you

From ever-giving fields

Let sweetness now delight me

Let Plenty be my yield


Mother let me hold your hand

Into the vast unknown

Let soaring birds inspire me

Let Trust be ever shown


Mother let me know you

Each moment of my day

Let Life be celebration

Let Love become my way


It Is So and So It Is
