Peace & Blessings

“Kind hearts are the gardens,

Kind thoughts are the roots,

Kind words are the blossoms,

Kind deeds are the fruits.”

19th century rhyme used in primary schools

 

 

Kind hearts are the gardens 

 I sow seeds with care

 I water with love

 I tend and I share

 

 

 Kind thoughts are the roots

 I trust and I know

 I set pure intention

 I watch Kind plants grow

 

 

 Kind words are the blossoms

 I speak them to all

 They shower like rain 

 I hear blessings fall

 

 

Kind deeds are the fruits

 I watch them abound

 I harvest, I share

 I stand on Love’s ground

 

 

For Kindness  is Grace

And Grace moves with Peace

With Trust and with Knowing

With Goodness and Ease

 

 

With Kindness of Heart

The Wisdom of Love

Life in this garden

Yields fruits undreamed of

 

 

 It Is So and So It Is

“Unhappy is he who mistakes the branch for the tree, the shadow for the substance.”  The Talmud

 

Awaken! Now open your eyes to the Real

Breathe! Now connect to your Source

Act! Now express from your Heart and feel

Smile! Now Good comes in due course

 

Under the canopy of Heavenly stars

We walk this earth and we see

Ours is the gift of reMembering

Allowing our Minds to be free

 

Gone is the grasping at branches that break

Gone is the wild shadow dance

Gone is attachment to stories that bind

Gone is the slumbering trance

 

No longer mistaking the branch for the tree

No longer do shadows entrance

No longer believing old patterns and forms

You’re free now to live your essence

 

Awaken! It is Goodness that you will find

Breathe! It is Peace at your core

Act! It is Love now that animates

Smile! It is Joy evermore

 

It is So and So It Is

” Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.” Proverbs 3:17

 

The door swung open as I stirred

A golden light did shine

A fragrance sweet and beaconing

An opening in time

 

I entered in without a pause

I welcomed this retreat

To stand Now in Eternity

To breathe, to feel complete

 

Her ways are ways of Pleasantness

And all her paths are Peace

Allowing all the walls to fall

I melt in sweet release

 

Etheric music filled the air

Each note was lifting me

I danced the dance of timelessness

Let go, and I was free

 

Her gentle face, her kind embrace

The Cosmos in her smile

I’m lost and found within the Now

I rest and stay a while

 

Her ways are ways of Pleasantness

And all her paths are Peace

Allowing all the walls to fall

I melt in sweet release

 

The heartbeat of the Infinite

A rhythm pulsing true

The Universe in motion

Her gifts seeded in you

 

Her patterns are revealing

In the tapestry she weaves

I’m seeing for the first time

One sees as one believes

 

Her ways are ways of Pleasantness

And all her paths are Peace

Allowing all the walls to fall

Come melt in sweet release

 

It Is So and So It Is

“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

” 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

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
Henry David Thoreau
Do you see the Beauty of the butterfly’s wing?
Do you see when the morning dove lifts?
Do you notice the curl of petals that fall?
Do you see everything as God’s gifts?
Are your eyes open now to the Miracle of Life?
Are you seeing your world as it is?
Are you thinking the thoughts that connect you to Source?
Are you feeling Divine’s every kiss?
Do you find the Joy in the eyes of the child?
Do you laugh with the rising sun?
Do you glow with Love and sit with Peace?
Do you know that this life is for fun?
Are your eyes open now to magnificence?
Are you seeing that Heaven’s right Here?
Are you thinking the thoughts of Eternity?
Are you feeling and drawing it near?
Do you see the diamonds in the morning dew?
Do you notice the hummingbird’s flight?
Do you feel the Peace in the mountain lake?
Do you gaze out and see the True Light?
It’s not what you look at that shapes your world
Reflections of what is inside
Your deepest thoughts and feelings
Take form for your viewing outside
It Is So and So It Is
