“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
