“As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I’ll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I’ll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can”.”    John Muir

The Heart of the World

In each raindrop that falls

The Heart of all Life

Wherever it calls

 

Invites us to enter

To walk and to play

Implores us to listen

To linger, to stay

 

The Heart of the World

Is calling our name

In whispering winds

Our Heart to reclaim

 

To lie in the meadow

To climb the high peak

To wash in the waters

Its this Heart we seek 

 

The Heart of the World

Reflects in our own 

Its rhythm is Love

It’s way, we’ve been shown

 

Come enter this garden

Come walk and come play

Come quietly listen

Come linger and stay

 

The Heart of the World

As bright as the sun

Within each of us

Our World Heart is One

 

It Is So and So It is

” I will bless The Lord at all times, his praise shall continuously be in my mouth.” Psalm 34:1
Today it is Praise that sings through me
Melodies sweet and clear
Today it is Blessings that chorus throughout
Harmonies drawing me near
Today it is Praise that speaks through me
Telling a story that frees
Today it is Blessings that write the tale
Inviting limitless Peace
Today it is Praise that touches my heart 
Expanding my limited view
Today it is Blessings that shower me
Washing me, making life new
Today it is Praise that lifts me up
Igniting a fire within
Today it is Blessings that light my way
Whispering ” Now begin”
It Is So and So It Is

“That which God said to the rose, and caused it to laugh in full-blown beauty, He said to my heart, and made it a hundred times more beautiful.”  Rumi
The petals Rich and Welcoming
The fragrance Sweet and Pure
The colors, woven Ecstasy
Of Love that does endure
This kiss of Beauty in our lives
This Passionate refrain
Does open up our eyes to see
And Love greets us again
Our hearts are temples, pulsing Love
With every beat it’s there
The Beauty and the Ecstasy
Its Goodness we may share
Enter the garden, Breathe the air
Expand your Love and Feel
Scatter the petals as you go
The life of Love is Real
God spoke it to the rose you see
The laughter rang out Love
Now spoken to my Heart and Soul
Sparks Goodness from above
It Is So and So  it Is

” Sin is an obstruction in the heart; an inability to feel and comprehend all that is noble, true and great, and to take part in the good. If man is to be free from sin, his mind and heart must be opened to the influence of enlightenment.” The Talmud

I see a path within the woods

A light that’s glowing bright

It beckons me to walk this way

It promises delight

No longer tripping on myself

No longer feeling fear

I walk this way and soon I see

All Goodness is right here

I sit now in an open glade

My breath now leading me

This spaciousness a calm reprieve 

My heart is beating free

There’s Beauty in these woods and glades

I’ve come here to explore

Discovering this place in me

Reached through an open door

With heart wide open, mind set free

I twirl, I sing, I dance

I move with Peace, wheree’r I go

I live magnificence

I walk this path, within the woods

I comprehend what’s True

It’s Goodness that is born to Life

It’s Oneness that’s in view

It Is So and So It

” There is naught whatsoever higher than I…All this is threaded on Me, as rows of pearls on a string.”   The Bhagavad-Gita

I’m stringing a necklace of all that I see

I’m choosing the pearls Divine

I’m seeing life Now, the Truth revealed

It’s Beauty and Love that I find

I’m stringing a necklace of all that I feel

I’m diving in the ocean of Bliss

I’m allowing the sand to become the pearl

It’s Joyous remembering this

I’m stringing a necklace of all that I know

I’m polishing the pearls with release

I’m holding them up now to catch the light

It shimmers with deepening Peace

I’m stringing a necklace of all of the All

I’m wearing it day and night

I’m keeping the pearls ever close to my heart

It’s Truth at the center of Light

It Is So and So It Is

” I see humanity now as one vast plant, needing for its highest fulfillment only love, the natural blessings of the great outdoors, and intelligent crossing and selection.”Luther Burbank
In Love you’ll find the answer
For questions as they sprout
Like plants that seek the sunlight
It’s Love they need, not doubt
While fear is hiding in the corner
Shrouded in the dark
Love comes forward, as a Light
And fear leaves not a mark
Breath will calm the thinking mind
Allowing in the Light
Now sprouting questions open
Find Love a welcome sight
Just as the sprout loves sunlight
And gentle rains to grow
Our questions are no different
And Love will guide, we know
In Love you’ll find the answer
For questions as they sprout
Like plants that seek the sunlight
It’s Love they need, not doubt
It Is So and So It Is
