“The time is always right to do the right thing.”  Martin Luther King Jr.


The time is right for standing tall

For claiming what is mine

For recognizing Goodness 

The Presence of Divine


The time is right for seeing all

For peering behind veils

For ever-glimpsing Goodness 

To know Divine prevails


The time is right for listening

For quieting the mind

For opening to Goodness

And there Divine to find


The time is right for speaking truth

For giving heart a voice

For amplifying Goodness

With words of Divine choice


The time is right for giving thanks

For blessings yet unknown

For Now receiving Goodness 

Divine forever shown


The time is right, the time is Now

For living Love and Peace

For sharing Goodness endlessly

Divine that does not cease


The Time is Always Right

It Is So and So It Is

” 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

“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

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”   Mother Teresa


Let us begin where we are today

Let us begin with Peace

Let us begin to open our hearts

Let us begin to release


Let us begin with Beauty today

Let us begin with Grace.

Let us begin to see beyond form

Let us begin to embrace


Let us begin to sing songs of Joy

Let us bring Happiness near

Let us begin to listen within

Let us go deeper and hear


Let us begin with Compassion today

Let us begin to care

Let us begin to feel in our hearts

Let us begin to share


Let us begin to smile today

Let us hold hands and walk free

Let us begin to laugh today

Let us magnificent Be


Let us begin


It Is So and So It Is

So Be It

“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
