“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

 

It Is So and So It Is

“For all things proceed out of this same spirit, which is differently named love, justice, temperance, in its different applications, just as the ocean receives different names on the several shores which it washes.” Emerson

 

An ocean of Goodness is washing me now

A Love that is wholly complete

A Kind understanding for each and all

A Peace that will never retreat

 

A sea of Bliss is touching each shore

Compassionate waves rise and fall

A Joyful expression of Beauty within

A Truth that the many are All

 

All Knowing

All Seeing

All Loving

All Now

All Wisdom

All Action

All Ways

 

Revealing this ocean, we rise and we fall

The bubbles becoming the sea

We create each wave, we wash on each shore

Magnificent, Whole, we are Free

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear?” Lao Tzu

 

Do you have the patience

To let the water clear

To allow the mud to settle

To watch it without fear

 

Do you have the patience

To walk the extra mile

To follow paths less traveled

To open and to smile

 

Do you have the patience

To watch the flower bloom

To clear your mind of what you know

To always make more room

 

Do you have the patience

To babble with the brook

To silence all your stories

To take another look

 

Do you have the patience

To listen deep within

To hear the voice of Wisdom

To eagerly begin

 

Do you have the patience

To let the water clear

To allow the mud to settle

To pause and bring Life near

 

Do you have the patience?

 

It Is So and So It Is

So Be It

“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered nor come into mind.”  Isaiah 65:17

 

Acceptance walks with me today

The path is bright and clear

Established in the Present

In Trust, I let go fear

 

Faith is holding out its hand

Inviting mine to meet

I feel the Present in the grasp

In Trust, I am complete

 

Enthusiasm speaks my name

I listen and I hear

That standing in the Present

In Trust, brings Goodness near 

 

Compassion drapes itself on me

The calmness that I feel

Brings the Present to my heart

In Trust, I know its real

 

Joy is lighting this new earth

And Beauty’s everywhere

The Present is the place to be

In Trust, I freely share

 

Peace and Love, it’s Heaven

Created here and now

On earth receive the Present

In Trust, no need for how 

 

The past has faded out of sight

The future, heaven’s dream

The Present is the entry

In Trust, Live is this stream

 

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

“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

“I want to know God’s thoughts. The rest are details.”
Albert Einstein
I want to know God’s thoughts
For Here is where Truth lies
Like golden threads announcing
Emerging Butterflies
I want to know God’s thoughts
In stillness they arrive
The whispers of Eternity
The voice within the dive
I want to know God’s thoughts
To peer beyond the veil 
To see the Miracles untold
In Oneness, to inhale
I want to know God’s thoughts
To speak with Heart and Soul
Aware, Alert, Creating
Vibrations of the Whole
I want to know God’s thoughts
With Mind centered in Peace 
The Essence and the Heart of Love
The Goodness, the Release
I want to know God’s thoughts
The rest are just details
Moments scattered, caught in Time
Markers, paths and trails
I want to Know God’s thoughts
Let God Be God as me
The image and the likeness
Magnificent and Free
It Is So and So It Is
So Be It
