“Thou will show me the path of life; in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures forevermore.”  Psalm 16:11

 

You will show me the path of life

I will walk with an open heart

Wed with the essence of Love

Expressing it fully, my part

 

You will show me the path of life

I will breathe in the quiet Mind

Wed with the essence of Peace

It is Harmony now that I find

 

You will show me the path of life

I will frolic among the hills

Wed with the essence of Joy

A zest and a Lightness instills

 

You will show me the path of Life

I will let every vision be known

Wed with the essence of Beauty

Reflections will ever be shown

 

You will show me the path of life

In its fullness I will abide

There are pleasures forevermore

For Heaven is where I reside

 

It Is So and So It Is

Forevermore

“See truth as it is and be forever free of opposition and contention.”  Garland Sutra 11

 

Effortless living, that’s what I seek

Letting the Good unfold

Waking Now to the Light of day

Expecting Miracles untold

 

Effortless living, that’s what I see

Opening eyes to the Real

Gazing into the vast unknown

Watching as Visions reveal

 

Effortless living, that’s what I hear

Whispering words from Divine

Listening to the deeper tones

Jubilant with what I find

 

Effortless living, that’s what I feel

Receiving gratefully Now

Embracing ease and spaciousness

Releasing all thoughts of “how”

 

Effortless living, that’s what I Am

Freedom and Peace born within

Magnificence in human form

Love that has Forever been

 

It Is So and So It Is

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

 

I’m thinking today of Abundance that is

Of Plentitude forevermore

Of fields of sunflowers turning their heads

To gold from the sun that does pour

 

 

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

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” John  Muir

 

A Season of Thanksgiving

A Time of Praise

A Moment to Pause

To Breathe and to Gaze

 

Nature is calling

Revealing what’s true

Let her move through you

Become someone new

 

Shout from the treetops

Laugh with the streams

Dance with the wind

Live all your dreams

 

The mountains good tidings

Are given to you

Peace flows like sunshine

You know what to do

 

The wind blows in freshness

Now breathe and expand

Let cares fall like leaves

Let Love raise its hand

 

The hand that gives freely

From a heart open wide

The hand that caresses

And reveals what’s inside

 

Nature is calling

Revealing what’s true

Let her move through you

Become someone new

 

It Is So and So It Is

“For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.”  Khalili Gibran

 

From mountaintop rains

From mists on the shore

From tears that we shed

A river does pour

 

It’s flowing downstream

It’s moving  ’round rocks

It’s flowing and growing

There’s nothing that blocks

 

A path through the valleys

With verdant green banks

A home there for many

A place giving thanks

 

Now gathered and mighty

It’s cut its own way

Still aimed for the ocean

Where all rivers play

 

Reluctant at times

To leave the confine

The shore of the lake

Reflecting Divine

 

And yet it does move

And arrive at the Source

It’s splashing and crashing

It’s Joyous, of course

 

For Life, like the river

Moves through many forms

Like droplets of water

It ever transforms

 

And death is a story

Of joining the flow

Of bubbles becoming

One ocean.  Let go

 

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

 

Goodness awoke me this morning at dawn

Bringing a golden key

Surrendering Now, Embracing Good

Nothing to do,  just Be

 

It Is So and So It Is

“The first step that the soul of the faithful man made, placed him in the Good-Thought Paradise;
The second step that the soul of the faithful man made, placed him in the Good-Word Paradise
The third step that the soul of the faithful man made, placed him in the Good-Deed Paradise.”   The Zend-Avesta
 
Butterflies emerge
By dissolving the old
Think now, and feel
All the Love that does hold
 
The acorn bursts forth
Rising up as the oak
Watch now, and feel
All the Power it spoke
 
The birds sing a song
On the breeze that they ride
Hear now, and feel
All the Joy from inside
 
First comes the thought
Then the word takes it out
And then form is given
It’s what Law is about
 
Immutable, Unchanging
It’s everywhere seen
Expanding, Evolving
It’s Pure and Pristine
 
Be Faithful,  Be Earnest
Be Thoughtful,  Be Kind
Speak Love into Being
Act from Higher Mind 
 
It Is So and So It Is
So BE It
