“Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed.”  Thich Nhat Hanh


Aware that this day is a Blessing

Aware in the opening dawn

Aware that the future will follow my thoughts

Aware that the past is gone


Aware that this day is a Blessing

Aware that there’s Peace right here

Aware the my breath is leading me home

Aware that I’m becoming clear


Aware that this day is a Blessing

Aware that my Joy’s light as air

Aware that it bubbles and brightens my smile

Aware that its gift is to share


Aware that this day is a Blessing

Aware that it’s Beauty I see

Aware that Goodness will follow my gaze

Aware that I’ve only to Be


Aware that this day is a Blessing

Aware that the treasure is Love

Aware that each moment is Precious

Aware that it flows from above


Aware that this day is a Blessing

Aware in each action performed

Aware that Divine’s Light is my Light

Aware now, alive now, Transformed


It Is So and So It Is

“Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.”  Rumi

The Universe is swirling

And I’ve been acting small

The waves of change are crashing

And now I take the call


The Universe is speaking

And I am listening in

The voice is clear and resonant

And I can hear “begin”


The Universe is dancing

And I am watching now

The rhythm is alluring

I dance, not knowing how


The Universe is singing

And I chime in as well

The melody inviting

In harmony I dwell


The Universe in motion

And I am standing tall 

A swirling, dancing rhythmic force

Is pulling me to All


It Is So and So It  Is

So Be It

“There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground; there are a thousand ways to go home again.” Rumi

A thousand ways to home again

A multitude expanding

Goodness, shines its light on All

The gaze of understanding


My way, your way, each unique

For no thing is the same

Compassion enters quietly

As Spirit plays the game


For we are individual

Unique gifts in our hearts

Undivided from the whole

We choose and play our parts


A thousand times a thousand

The pathways we have found

Love, patiently awaits us

We kneel and kiss the ground


It Is So and So It Is

” …for thou art with me…” Psalm 23:4


I lie beneath the canopy

Like diamonds cast above

I feel the hand of God and know

A deep abiding Love


I sit beside the mountain lake

Inviting my release

I see the face of God and know

Reflections of true Peace


I dive into the ocean

A bubble in the sea

I feel the arms of God and know

That Joy is holding me


I walk in life’s own garden

The blossoms and the fruit 

I see the eyes of God and know

That Beauty’s taken root


I travel on the path of Life

No strangers do I meet

I see in each the smile of God

Its friends that I now greet


In every moment of every day

Resplendent energy

I recognize God’s handiwork 

Hello, Eternity


It Is So and So It Is

“…my cup runneth over.” Psalm 23:5
I’m walking on a path today
That overflows with Love
On everyside and all around
It’s showering from above
I’m sailing on a sea today
That washes me with Peace
The gentle waves transform me
Restoring through release
I’m soaring on the breeze today
It’s Joy that’s lifting me
The lightness of the moment
Reminds me that I’m free
I’m lying in the Field today
There’s Beauty everywhere
The radiance of Being
Paints portraits in the air
I’m holding up my cup today
Pressed down, it overflows
With Goodness that’s unending
For in this Life it grows
I’m breathing deep and thankful
These Blessings flooding me
Allowing me to enter now
Into Eternity
It Is So and So It Is

” Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…” Psalm 23:67
Through time and space I’ve traveled
Setting foot on this terrain
I use them both as avenues
Yet unlimited I remain
Eternity, my birthplace
No beginning and no end
My choices surely infinite
When Mind I carefully tend
The treasure chest is open
And Truth outpours to me
Embodying what’s given
Will ever set me free
Transformed, I know the permanence
Of Heaven here on earth
Expressions of this Infinite Mind
Through each is given birth
And Blessings fall like petals
Reality revealed
When my mind joins the One Mind
No thing will be concealed
And surely Goodness follows me
With Mercy ever near
Abiding in the Presence
Eternity is here
It Is So and So It Is

“Knock, And He’ll open the door
Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun
Fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens
Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.” 
The door was open yesterday
The entryway was wide
I slipped right in, sat quietly
Found Love to sit beside
I vanished for a moment
I shined bright as the sun
The luminosity revealed
A Peace within the One
Now Passion took my hand
As Wisdom guided me
Into a life abundant
With possibility
Transformed I stepped out boldly
On wings I glided free
I recognized No thing
That used to tether me
My eyes now fully open
The veils have dropped away
And in this State of Oneness
I Joyfully will stay
The Beauty and the Wonder
The Grace that paints each scene
A simple knock upon the door
A welcome opening
It Is So and So It Is
