“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.”  Helen Keller
 
A heart that can listen
A heart that can feel
A heart that sees everything
Touches the Real
 
This heart is open
This heart is clear
This heart is laughing
Bringing Joy near
 
A heart that is giving 
A heart that is kind
A heart that’s expansive
Linked with One Mind
 
This heart moves mountains
This heart breathes Peace
This heart’s Forever
Love does not cease
 
Now feel with this heart
Now see beyond veils
Now touch the Divine
As everything pales
 
For this is our mission
Our purpose, our call
To live in our hearts 
Connected to All
 
It Is So and So It Is

“Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.”  Paramahansa Yogananda

 

The morning sun has dawned today

Like smiling, golden Light

Awakening my sleeping soul

That it may smile as bright

 

The quiet of the early morn

The diamond dew on green

The song of countless birds on wing

These smiles my heart has seen

 

My eyes alive now with the smiles

That soul and heart have brought

Reflecting out into my world

For smiles cannot be caught

 

They stream like sunbeams everywhere

Their radiance is Love

Their secret is that they deliver

Goodness from above

 

How perfect that the soul should be

The messenger to heart

And heart will pass the Love along

Through eyes that then impart

 

It’s Love and Peace they scatter

It’s Joy that’s been released

And sad hearts brighten quickly

As rich smiles are unleashed

 

Smile

For It Is So and So It Is

“We are shaped by our thoughts, we become what we think. When the mind is pure,  joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”  Buddha
 
The sun is rising in the East
Golden beams reveal
Waking from the darkness
It’s clarity I feel
 
Rising up and breathing
Peace is filling me
Entraining to the rhythms
It’s timelessness to Be
 
Sitting in the silence
Truth is speaking clear
Listening, embracing
It’s drawing Goodness near
 
Mindful thoughts are shaping
Love is raining pure
Washed and cleansed, emerging
It’s comfort does endure
 
Stepping into Life now
Thinking from this Mind
Joy does surely follow me
Light-shadows of Divine
 
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

 

It Is So and So It Is

“For all things proceed out of this same spirit, which is differently named love, justice, temperance, in its different applications, just as the ocean receives different names on the several shores which it washes.” Emerson

 

An ocean of Goodness is washing me now

A Love that is wholly complete

A Kind understanding for each and all

A Peace that will never retreat

 

A sea of Bliss is touching each shore

Compassionate waves rise and fall

A Joyful expression of Beauty within

A Truth that the many are All

 

All Knowing

All Seeing

All Loving

All Now

All Wisdom

All Action

All Ways

 

Revealing this ocean, we rise and we fall

The bubbles becoming the sea

We create each wave, we wash on each shore

Magnificent, Whole, we are Free

 

It Is So and So It Is

“…and prove me now herewith, saith The Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it…”  Malachi 3:10

 

And Blessings fall like petals

On springtime’s gentle breeze

Filling the air with fragrance

Filling the soul with Peace

 

And gathering them in baskets

They quickly overflow

Releasing all that’s given

Releasing all we know

 

And you cannot contain

The Blessings you receive

They’re meant to be passed on

They’re meant to be set free

 

And Grateful hearts receive them

And send them on their way

Their bounty simply multiplies

Their bounty fills each day

 

And now the Gratitude

Is raining down as well

The Blessing of the Blessing

The Blessing that we tell

 

It Is So and So It Is

Let us begin where we are today

Let us begin with Peace

Let us begin to open our hearts

Let us begin to release

 

Let us begin with Beauty today

Let us begin with Grace.

Let us begin to see beyond form

Let us begin to embrace

 

Let us begin to sing songs of Joy

Let us begin to listen within

Let us go deeper and hear

 

Let us begin with Compassion today

Let us hold hands and walk free

Let us begin to laugh today

Let us magnificent Be

 

Let us begin
