Peace & Blessings

” With flowers, with bright skies, with the divine manna of joy in happy minds, with souls full of wisdom, with songs of the birds, with divine melodies  in the hearts of men, my Beloved is calling me to retrace my footsteps to His home of peace within. “ Paramahansa Yogananda

 

Today I arise to the songs of the birds

Today I hear melodies flowing

Today I see blue skies wherever I look

Today I feel Peace within growing

 

 

Today I arise to the sun shining bright

Today I hear laughter uproarious

Today I see flowers exploding in bloom

Today I feel Joy within glorious 

 

 

Today I arise to the life that is Real

Today I hear words washed with gold

Today I see wonder in each one I pass

Today I feel Love untold

 

 

Today I am retracing every step

Today I need never roam

Today I see clearly the way of Peace

Today I am returning Home

 

 

Today

Now

It Is So and So It Is

So Be It

” Everybody can be great.  Because anybody can serve.  You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.  You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve.  You only need a heart full of grace.  A soul generated by love.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
 
Today I rise to serve
I’m purposeful and clear
For service fueled by Spirit
Is Love arriving here
Today my heart of Grace
Knows Love is at its core
For Grace is born of Spirit
And Love from Grace does pour
Today I plant Kind seeds 
And Love is now set Free
For Spirit’s Kindness sprouts 
From roots of Love you see
 
Today I will be great
With Joy I’ll serve and give
Allowing Spirit’s Love
To root and grow and live.
 
It Is So and So It Is 
So Be It

“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

” You are not just the drop in the ocean,  you are the mighty ocean in the drop.” Rumi

 

I feel it in the rising tide

A stirring deep within

I watch it wash away the old

I hear it call, “Begin again”

 

I see it in the river’s course

It moves with certainty

I watch it toss and tumble stones

I hear it call, “Be Free!”

 

I feel it in the rising sun

A dancing 0rb in space

I watch the rhythmic pulse in time

I hear it , “Take your place”

 

 I see it in the mountain lake

Reflecting  golden sun

I watch it ripple with the breeze

I hear it call, “Be One”

 

I feel it in the gentle rain

It washes over me

The mighty ocean in the drop

Returning me to Me

 

It Is So and So It Is

“…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness, faith…” Galatians 5:22

 

The door swung wide this morning

And Goodness came right in

She smiled and held me in her arms

And Ease as here again

 

With Faith there now came Gentleness

And Wisdom spoke so true

They gave themselves completely

Inviting in the New

 

A New Appreciation

Of all that’s ever been

A New Awakened state of Mind

Embracing life again

 

As Joy swept in and sparkled

And Beauty filled all space

The room glowed in a golden light

Revealing there dear Grace

 

And Peace descended silently

And Calm was in the room

All Time was swept from consciousness

And New was in full bloom

 

A New Experience of life

No limits and no bounds

A New Creative impulse

‘Twas this that I had found

 

And Love was beating as my heart

And Passion rose to speak

All gifts of God are Here and Now

There’s no thing you need seek

 

The fruit of Spirit ever yours

Just let the Blessings in

The trees abundantly do yield

Each moment you begin

 

It Is So and So It Is

So Be it

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” John I:5
 
A light is shining bright today
A radiant glow, a beam
The shimmer of the vibrancy
Enlivens every scene
 
It’s golden and transparent
The dark of night dissolved
The rhythmic dance of particles
Illumined and evolved
 
The mists of morning disappear
Like tears, they wash and clear
A tapestry is woven
All Goodness does appear
 
There’s Beauty and there’s Joy now
There’s Peace that calms and breathes
Each atom pulses with the Love
Expanding, this light frees
 
The light shines in the darkness
Which comprehends it not
For it is No thing substantive
Dispelled when lit with thought
 
Now turning thoughts to Goodness
Now seeing with new eyes
Now knowing with full certainty
In Love’s light, darkness flies
 
It Is So and So It Is

“Lo! We have shown man the way, whether he be grateful or disbelieving.” The Koran

 

Unconditioned by time or space

Beliefs can neither bind

Breathe and quiet scattered thoughts

Eternity you’ll find

 

The Law of Life, the only Truth

Established in me Now

The Alpha and Omega

Released from knowing how

 

For in each moment, “It is done”

Surrender Now and Shine

Darkness fades as Light reveals

Expressions of Divine

 

The way’s been shown, the path is Peace

With open hearts of Love

We’re bringing Heaven here on Earth

We’re living “As Above”

 

It Is So and So It Is
