” All is the effect of all, one universal Essence.”  Brihad Aranyakas Upanishad

 

 

The ocean spreads before me

A wide expansive sea

Dive in, I tell myself again

Go deep and become Free

 

And in these depths of Wonder

With Silence beckoning

The whispers of Eternity

Invite my listening

 

One Universal Essence

Is at the heart of All

Allow these Peaceful waters

To wash away the walls

 

The walls of separation

Locked in, without a door

The walls that fear built hopelessly

Illusions evermore

 

The walls built to protect you

From an enemy unknown

The walls, now prison to your Soul

Fall down, as water washes stone

 

Emerging from the ocean

The Pearl of Wisdom held

Within my heart, Love’s opening

Inspired and compelled

 

One Universal Essence

The All, ever at hand

Its Presence never absent

This is the Promised Land

 

It Is So and So It Is

“He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season, his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper. “ Psalm 1:3

 

The acorn falls on fertile ground

It sprouts and seeks the sun

Tiny roots are taking hold

New life has just begun

 

The soil rich and giving

The water full of life

Rooted now and growing

It overcomes all strife

 

The tiny seedling stretches

As seasons come and go

It broke its shell to now become

The mighty oak we know

 

All greatness is encoded

Within our very core

Break free, take root and flourish

Breathe now, and live for more

 

Magnificence, your birthright

Brilliance shining through

Expand your Goodness daily

To your own Self be true

 

As it was in the beginning

Shall be forever more

The seed that’s planted yielding

More Truth than ’twas before

 

It Is So and So It Is

So BE It

” Yea, thou shalt not find any variableness in the way of God.”  The Koran

 

Patterns that move through the ages of time

Steady and true to their course

Creation unending and birthing anew

Revealing a Powerful force

 

The Sun ever-rising from out of the East

And steadily climbing above

Then setting aflame the view in the West

Unchangeable labor of Love

 

The Stars set like diamonds across the vast sky

Giving Light, where once there was none

In a rhythm that’s ageless, the Moon joins the dance

No variableness in the ways of the One

 

The butterfly lifting on breezes that Free

Transcending an earth-bound cocoon

The melting and mingling of  the old and the new

To Life’s rhythm completely attune

 

My consciousness wakes, my heart opens wide

I’m seeing where once I was blind

The rhythms and patterns Unyielding and True

Surrendering to Love, I’ve aligned

 

Patterns that move through the ages of time

Steady and true to their course

Creation unending and birthing anew

Revealing One Powerful force

 

It Is So and So It Is

“So likewise thou in all thy speech

Swerve never from the path of Truth”   Buddhism in Translation

 

The Path of Truth invites me

To step upon in Now

To walk it daily, Know it

To let it show me how

 

To tune my mind to Goodness

To fill my heart with Love

To walk it daily, Know it

To live life from above

 

Above the fears and worries

Above the pettiness

To walk it daily, Know it

To discard emptiness

 

The Path of Truth invites me

To step upon in Now

To walk it daily, Know it

To let it show me how

 

To sing and dance with Freedom

To laugh at Life out loud

To walk it daily, Know it

To Feel that I’m allowed

 

Allowed to Be Magnificent

Allowed to have it all

To walk it daily, Know it

As Blessings ever fall

 

The Path of Truth invites me

To step upon in Now

To walk it daily, Know it

To this I take a vow

 

To Breathe into my center

To let Peace speak my word

To share Love freely, Know it

Let only Truth be heard

 

It Is So and So It Is

So BE It

“When the mind is cleansed by the grace of wisdom, he is seen by contemplation–the One without parts.”  Mundane Upanishad

 

A voice is speaking as I wake

It begs me, “Lend an ear”

A drum is sounding, steady tones

Awake, the words are clear

 

My heart is taking up the beat

It fills my every cell

So steady is the rhythm now

I’m feeling what words tell

 

It speaks of Wholeness and of Love

It breathes into me, Peace

I’m floating in the Sea of Bliss

Allowing, I release

 

And Joy is coursing through me now

The pulse electrifies

The Beauty and the Ecstasy

Expands and magnifies

 

My mind is cleansed and purified

The veils now fall away

The Grace of Wisdom shone it’s Light

On this new holy day

 

It’s only One, without parts

That weaves this tapestry

A drape of Love for each and All

Transformed, we are set Free

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity.”  Habakkuk 1:13

 

My eyes too pure to look upon

The evils that some see

My Mind too fixed on Good, my God

Right thinking is the key

 

Infinite Mind created each

With Freedom at the core

To gaze into this world of Good

Right thinking expands more

 

Affirming Good in everything

I Breathe the breath of Peace

I listen to the small, still voice

Right thinking cannot cease

 

Like manna, the ideas appear

Heaven’s table set

To never hunger for the past

Right thinking, not regret

 

The living waters rush and flow 

I drink the Truth of Love

Quenched now, no longer thirsting

Right thinking, from above

 

My eyes too pure to look upon

The evils that some see

My Mind too fixed on Good, my God

Right thinking is the key

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Another glorious…day in which one seems to be dissolved and absorbed and sent pulsing onward we know not where. Life seems neither long nor short, and we take no more heed to save time or make haste than to do the trees and stars. This is true freedom…” John Muir

 

A glorious day

Of Life, ever-changing

An eye-opening experience

Of energy transforming

 

 

A dissolution of one form

An emergence of another

A pattern of evolution

The rhythm of our Mother

 

 

A breath of fresh air

A rise and a fall

A cloudburst that washes

Revealing the All

 

 

A spiritual adventure

On wings that simply soar

A pulsing onward

Into Life that is more

 

 

A path that appears

A Faith that evolves

Light of a new day

As darkness dissolves

 

 

A Joyful adventure

A promise set Free

Loving expansions

Into Eternity

 

 

It Is So and So It Is
