“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

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”  Martin Luther King, Jr.

The starless midnight

Dissolving Now

As Daylight surely breaks

 

The dawn of Truth

Emerging Now

Gives Light, that overtakes

 

This gentle rise

O’retaking Now

Dissolves the dark and then

 

The flame of Love

Heartwarming Now

Gives Happiness again

 

The veil is lifting

Seeing Now

A view of life that’s more

 

The Light of Mind

Transforming Now

Gives all an open door

 

The daybreaks bright

For Peace is Now

The final word is Love

 

And Brotherhood 

Is Known right Now

The Truth we’re worthy of

 

It Is So and So It Is

“To work with God’s happiness bubbling in the soul is to carry a portable paradise within you wherever you go.” 
Paramahansa Yogananda
I woke today with happiness
I rose up feeling fine
I listened to the falling rain
I felt it wash my Mind
The freshness of the morning
The coolness of the air
The fragrance of the blossoms
Assured me I was there
It was Paradise I woke to
It was vibrant, it was clear
It was beckoning me to enter
It was whispering in my ear
“Just stay in this environment
No need to run away
Hold happiness within your soul
Know Paradise all day”
I loved the simple elegance
I loved the pulsing beat
I loved the feeling that I felt
I’m home and now complete
I’ll live this day in Paradise
I’ll sleep in its embrace
I’ll wake again tomorrow
I’ll stay within this space
It is Paradise I wake to
It is vibrant, it is clear
It is beckoning me to live Here
It is whispering in my ear
“Just stay in this environment
No need to run away
Hold happiness within your soul
Know paradise all day”
It Is So and So It Is

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”  Albert Einstein

The notes are rising like the sun

Emerging from the night

A melody of things to come

From darkness into light

 

The harmony is beckoning

Inviting you to dance

Just tap your foot, sway side to side

It’s beyond circumstance

 

Lie in the grass and listen

The bees have joined in too

The birds on wing are chorusing

The trees bow down to you

 

A symphony of music

Is pulling you through space

The time is Now, unleash your dreams

You’re in the perfect place

 

There’s rhythm in this Universe

There’s music everywhere 

Your part is vital to the song

Let go, it’s time to share

 

To see your life as music

To dream with pulsing Love

To let crescendos peak on high

Vibrations from above

 

It Is So and So It Is

So Be It
