“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.”  Helen Keller
A heart that can listen
A heart that can feel
A heart that sees everything
Touches the Real
This heart is open
This heart is clear
This heart is laughing
Bringing Joy near
A heart that is giving 
A heart that is kind
A heart that’s expansive
Linked with One Mind
This heart moves mountains
This heart breathes Peace
This heart’s Forever
Love does not cease
Now feel with this heart
Now see beyond veils
Now touch the Divine
As everything pales
For this is our mission
Our purpose, our call
To live in our hearts 
Connected to All
It Is So and So It Is

“To love is to know Me, My innermost nature, the truth that I am.”   The Bhagavad-Gita


Like petals that fall from blossoming trees

Blessings are showering me now

Like sunbeams that warm  the  morning dawn

Love simply provides the “how”


Like song birds that soar on the gentle breeze

Melodies now fill the air

Like butterflies, transformed and taking flight

Love simply always is there


To Love is to Know the Heavenly One

Your innermost nature, it’s true 

Present within, to be released throughout

Love simply becomes your “do”


Immersed in Love, ever-Loving am I

Seeing Love where’er I go

Seeking the Good in the each and the All

Love simply provides Life’s flow


For the Truth that I AM, is Love you see

And from Love all things take their forms

Allowing the Feeling to guide your way

Love simply, gently transforms


It Is So and So It Is

“I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.”  Khalil Gibran
We learn our lessons, day by day
And nothing here is “wrong”
The contrast provides food for thought
And Thoughts bring us along
Each day brings Light into the dark
And Breath, a vacuum fills
We stand upon a mountaintop
That rises from the hills
And Oceans touching many shores
Meet rock as well as sand
They wash away the dross of life
Perfection is at hand
The contrast is astounding
Variety abounds
Diverse, yet singular are we
As Gratitude is found
Our teachers, they are many
When open eyes can see
For often it is contrast
That truly sets us free
We learn our lessons, day by day
And nothing here is “wrong”
The contrast provides food for thought
Now Feeling, come along
It Is So and So It Is

“Climb the mountains, and get their good tidings.”  John Muir


Climb the mountains

They’re waiting for you

To share their good tidings 

You’ve nothing to do


From valley to mountaintop

Good tidings abound

Let Nature lead you

And there you’ll to be found


Like the well-rooted cedar

Or the redwood so grand

All holding their ground

All taking a stand


Displaying magnificence

Bottom to top

Inside and outside

Their growth does not stop


Living their destiny

Traveling through time

Rooted to Mother

Drinking Divine


Go climb the mountains

Wherever you are

Receive their good tidings

And they’ll take you far


Into the heart 

Of Eternity

Breathe in their goodness

Set yourSelf free


It Is So and So It Is

” Give and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together; and running over. ”    Luke 6:38


 A circle is forming

 In all that I do

 Continuous, flowing

 A circle is true


 It has no beginning

 Nor end in its way

 It ever is moving

 All night and all day


 A circle is spinning

 Revealing a door

 With all acts of giving

 Receiving’s in store


 Around it keeps going

 A continuous flow

 Giving, Receiving 

 Together they grow


 A circle of Living

 Simple and clear

 Jump in by giving

 Receiving is here


 Nothing is needed

 It knows what to do

 Pressed down and shaken

 Running over for you


 It Is So and So It Is

” If we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us. ”  I John 4:12


 Love is the Center from which I move

 Love is the place I rest

 Love creates Harmony in my life

 Love ever builds on the best


 Love sees through eyes of Compassion

 Love cradles, opening all Hearts

 Love speaks with words of Kindness

 Love listens, hearing all parts


 Love is the healing power of life

 Love touches everyone

 Love is the light that meets the dark

 Love knows what’s next to be done


 Love is an agent of Truth and Trust

 Love opens up the way

 Love connects everyone heart to heart

 Love is a choice each day


 Love is the Center of everything

 Love is the Peace we give

 Love is reflecting God, here and now

 Love is the Heaven we live

“And lead us not into temptation…”  Matthew 6:13


An outlet for Good, Eternal Mind

My consciousness holds Truth you see

I’ve only to pause, to breathe, to ask

And temptations surely will flee


Tempted to think an unkind thought

Tempted to speak out of fear

Tempted to act with a blindfold on

From Eternal Mind, these now clear


Strong in the Lord, the great Law of Life

This Power ever shines Light

I’ve only to open my Heart, to Feel

And temptations surely take flight


Tempted to think I’m powerless

Tempted to blame and to shame

Tempted to act from the patterns of past

From Eternal Mind, Truth I claim


Life lived abundantly, Plentitude

Life that grows richer each day

Life lived with Love at the center, the Heart

Life that knows Peace as the Way


It Is So and So It Is
