“The appearance of things changes according to the emotions; and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.” Khalil Gibran

 

Peace within 

It fills all space 

Quietly seated  

Eternal grace 

 

Joy within 

No reason told 

Dances free 

Sparkling gold 

 

Beauty within 

Shining bright 

Radiance 

Divine’s pure Light 

 

Magic within

I recognize 

A treasure house 

To my surprise 

 

Love within 

Release it out 

The face of God 

Without a doubt 

 

Blessings fall 

Like blossoms now 

Inspired living 

Just allow 

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Be  in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees. 
For it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower.
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.  
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life,
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.”
 ― Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
Let pleasure ever dance through you
Like flowers dance with bees
Let Goodness waken ceaselessly
The fragrance of the breeze
Let pleasure clothe your body
As you give and you receive
These golden threads of living
Are the garments that you weave
This pleasure is your destiny
Like waves upon the shore
The ebb and flow, the give and take 
An interplay of more
Let Giving be the fountain
The well-spring of your Love
Let Receiving be your vessel
Gathering manna from above
Creating masterpieces
Expanding as you go
Giving and Receiving
The communion of your Soul
It Is So and So It Is

“Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding… And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy”    Kahlil Gibran
 
 
I Wonder at the Glory
Of every dawning day
I Wonder at the Sparkle
The jewels of dew display
 
I Wonder at the Miracle
In every new-born child
I Wonder at the Magic
Reflected as they’ve smiled
 
I Wonder at the falling
Of Earth-enriching rain
I Wonder at the tears
That spill as we feel pain
 
I Wonder at the Opening
Of every fragrant bloom
I Wonder at the Peace
It brings into a room
I Wonder at the Brilliance
Of diamonds in the night
I Wonder at the Calm
Of seeing such a sight
 
I Wonder at the Feelings
That overtake the heart
I Wonder at the Passion
That pulls us from the start
 
I Wonder and I’m Thankful
I Wonder and I Know
I Wonder and I’m Glad
That Wonders ever-show
 
WonderFULL
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

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.”  — Kahlil Gibran
How Beautiful these spacious skies
These plains of gold and green
How Beautiful these forests stand
Expressions of Supreme
 
Supreme Intelligence that spins
Reality from thought
Supreme expansions in a world
That’s Limitless we’re taught
 
How Beautiful the Mother’s smile
These babes upon the breast
How Beautiful these open hearts
Reflections of Loves best
 
Love lighting every heart and mind
Illumines Unity
Love’s central note, the Symphony
Strikes chords that set us Free
 
How Beautiful this life we lead
These opportunities
How Beautiful the Light we shine
For all Eternity
 
It Is So and So It Is
So BE it

“For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.”  Khalili Gibran

 

From mountaintop rains

From mists on the shore

From tears that we shed

A river does pour

 

It’s flowing downstream

It’s moving  ’round rocks

It’s flowing and growing

There’s nothing that blocks

 

A path through the valleys

With verdant green banks

A home there for many

A place giving thanks

 

Now gathered and mighty

It’s cut its own way

Still aimed for the ocean

Where all rivers play

 

Reluctant at times

To leave the confine

The shore of the lake

Reflecting Divine

 

And yet it does move

And arrive at the Source

It’s splashing and crashing

It’s Joyous, of course

 

For Life, like the river

Moves through many forms

Like droplets of water

It ever transforms

 

And death is a story

Of joining the flow

Of bubbles becoming

One ocean.  Let go

 

It Is So and So It Is
