“For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was anything kept secret, but that it should come abroad.”  Mark 4:22
 
In nature lies the golden thread
In woven tapestry
The Beauty in the Order
Is spun for all to see
 
For there is nothing hidden
It’s written in each leaf
A Balance and a Harmony
A place to build belief
 
There is no effort to this weave
The cycles come alive
Emerging, then receding 
In rhythm they do thrive
 
And nothing is kept secret
The rising moon does tell
A Peace walk through millennia 
The Light that does dispel
 
Shall I now follow nature
And plant my seeds to grow
Releasing their magnificence
Expanding all they know
 
Shall I allow the Universe
To shine Love through my eyes
To be the Peace-filled firmament
That all life does comprise
 
For there is nothing hidden
No secret has been kept
From slumber we are waking
From darkness we have stepped
 
Magnificence revealing
As Passion takes our hand
We Breathe the breath of Loving Life
We soar and we Expand
 
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

“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

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”  Albert Einstein

 

In nature is written

The stories through Time

In the heart of the tree

It’s circles we find  

 

   

The orbit of planets

Around the sun

In circles they travel

Since Time has begun

 

 

The patterns in flowers

The spiraling shell

More circles are forming

More stories they tell

 

 

A circle’s unending

Constant and true

And our lives, in Spirit

Are circling too

 

 

We made our appearance

Our purpose to Be

In circles we’re living

Reflections you see

 

 

For God’s at our center

and God’s at our edge

The circle’s unending

And this is God’s pledge

 

 

Look deep into nature

Where patterns reside

In circles emerging

God’s Love does abide

 

 

It Is So and So It Is

“God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” I John 1:5
Saying Yes to all that’s True
Walking in the Light
Now the path is clearly seen
Magnificent birthright
Letting down the barriers
Unlocking gates and doors
Entering the Garden Now
Peace on shining shores
Flooded with Divine ideas
Inspired with each breath
A channel of expression
A Joy that knows no death
Darkness, a distant memory
A moment without Light
Revealing now, an open Mind
That sees with perfect sight
For God is Light and Good is God
Darkness cannot abide
When consciousness absorbs us
With Truth, walk side by side
It Is So and So It Is

“The life of man is a self-evolving circle , which, from a  ring imperceptively small, rushes on all sides outward to new and larger circles, and without end.”  Emerson

 

A seed has fallen to the ground

Within is held great things

A might oak, an apple tree

Of more, this seed now sings

 

A chrysalis hangs from a leaf

Within is change you see

A caterpillar melting

For the butterfly to Be

 

A thought has entered into mind

Within, it takes the lead

I follow knowing greater Mind

Just planted a new seed

 

On fertile soil the seed falls

Within, Peace washes me

Old patterns fade, dissolve and go

New circles now I see

 

A greater instrument of Truth

Within, now calls my name

Circles of evolution

Life never stays the same

 

Magnificent and fearless

Within, I take that stand

I’m letting go, transforming 

To endlessly expand

 

It Is So and So It Is

“So likewise thou in all thy speech
Swerve never from the path of truth.”  Buddhism in Translation
Thoughts, the well-spring of our words
Fed from higher ground
Rivers rushing to the sea
Oneness to be found
 
And when that spring is Goodness
And when those thoughts run Clear
Then those words are Truthful
No longer held by fear
 
Those Words are now like blossoms
For Truth has set them free
The gentle breeze of Consciousness
Has let their essence be
 
And sweet the fragrance of those Words
They’re Hearts releasing Love
They’re Insight with Compassion
They’re Radiance from above
 
As Goodness washes over you
No obstacles remain
For Truth is known and spoken
And Faith is your domain
 
Swerve never from the Path of Truth
Let Love direct and  guide
From thoughts to words release it
All Truth is magnified
 
It Is So and So It Is
