“Thus it is that the Tao produces all things, nourishes them, brings them to their full growth, nurses them, completes them, matures them, maintains them, and overspreads them.” The Tao Te Ching

 

The budding rose, the glistening dew

The butterfly on wing

The apple painted crimson

Of all these things we sing

 

The pink curl of the seashell

The cosmic sound it holds

The bursting forth at sunrise

These treasures are our gold

 

The newborn’s first breath taken

The child’s small hand in mine

The hug that brings us home again

These songs of Love through time

 

The air alive with ocean spray 

The moss upon the tree

The smell of falling rain

These gifts do set us Free

 

The verdant green of Springtime

The sprout that breaks the ground

The just-hatched nestlings, high above

These echo Cosmic sound

 

The rising mountain’s majesty

The quiet of it’s lakes

The new horizon that it shows

These given for our sakes

 

The Tao produces all things

It nourishes and maintains

Its ever-Present Wholeness

The Glory that sustains

 

It Is So and So It Is

“I am the Lord, I change not.”  Malachi 3:6

 

The Lord, the great Law of Life is changeless

Nothing’s been concealed

Running through this Law of Life

Patterns are revealed

 

Rhythms drumming daily

Pulsing waves of light

Rhythms ever present

Through the dark of night

 

Atoms dancing freely

Sharing fields to form

Molecules and chemicals

From which cells are born

 

Bonds that create matter

Pulsing in this sea

Rhythmic and coherent

Drumming synchrony

 

Patterns now revealing

Born of Harmony

Life Abundant, Vibrant

As it’s meant to be

 

The Law of Life is changeless

Creating with each thought

Setting Mind in motion 

Rhythms once forgot

 

It Is So and So It Is

“As the Lord is called righteous and loving, so you be righteous and loving.”   Sifre Deuteronomy 85a

 

There is a Law of Life you know

All Power lies within

To know it is to honor it

To trust it as a friend

 

Encompassing all matter

A Presence that’s unseen

To use it ever rightly

To accept no in between

 

This Law is nothing personal

A Wisdom from beyond

To learn and gain pure knowledge

To listen and respond

 

Transforming all conditions

Unlimited in scope

To Activate its attributes

To create Faith from Hope

 

And Love is a vibration

Eternal resonance

It strikes the chord of Harmony

In the Universal dance

 

A Perfect Idea born

A Righteous Thought expressed

To link our thoughts with Righteousness

To Love and to be Blessed

 

This is the Law of Life you know

Your thinking is the key

Linked with the feeling tone of Love

Righteously become free

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Every being has the Buddha Nature.  This is the Self.”   Mahaparinirvana Sutra 214
 
The Buddha Nature seated
Within each, Here and Now
Not distant, wishful thinking
But Real, as we allow
 
The Buddha Nature speaks
Within each, Wisdom true
Inspired thoughts of Goodness
The Real, that’s ever new
 
The Buddha Nature guides 
Within each, Lights the way
Revealing paths of Righteousness 
The Real, now on display
 
The Buddha Nature holds 
Within each, Sweet caress
The Peace beyond the Knowing
The Real, ours to express
 
The Buddha Nature opens
Within each, Heart of Love
Magnificence and Glory
The Real, here as above
 
The Buddha Nature given
Within each, Freedom’s call
A fearless, bold adventure
The Real, embrace it All
 
It Is So and So It Is
So BE It

“Where can I find a man who has forgotten words so I can have a word with him.” Chuang Tzu 26

 

The words that we speak

Both night and day

Have power and strength

Beyond what we say

 

Conveying a State 

Of consciousness

Words speak the essence

The Heart of us

 

Words find their footing

In thoughts that we think

Cherish your thoughts

Like water you drink

 

Hold them and shape them

Allow them to grow

To blossom with Love

Then share what you know

 

Knowing your Heart

That Light of Divine

Forgetting words

And now what you find

 

Gentleness, Kindness

A Peace that is Real

Energy rippling

These words you reveal

 

Speaking in volumes

Words of pure Love

Praising the One Mind

Life lived from above

 

It Is So and So It Is

“The footsteps of those who dwell with the god of Light are set free.”  Book of the Dead
 
 
Beings of Light
That’s what we are
Riding the waves
Traveling far
 
Lifetimes unfold
Timeless expanse
Light takes our hand
Guiding the dance
 
Worn like a garment
Light clothes us now
Beams from within
Simply allow
 
Goodness precedes
Unified Light
Songs lit with Joy
Sing through the night
 
Sunshine of Life
Limitless Love
Dawns each new day
Light from above
 
Light of the One
On Earth to Be
No thing to do
Eternally free
 
It Is So and So It Is
So Be It

” But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,” Galatians 5:22

 

In the Field, there stands a tree

Rising tall and strong

The leaves on branches bow to you

And whisper, “ Come along”

 

Upon this tree, the Fruits of Life

Their patterns replicate

And ripen in the Light of Truth

Their message, “ You  create”

 

There is a Wealth of Kindness

A Plentitude of Peace

There’s Patience in Abundance

Their gentle voice, “Release”

 

There is an overflow of Joy

A Bounty of Good cheer

There’s Laughter in the rustling leaves

That giggle, “ Remain Here”

 

The Harvest is unending

A Cornucopia of Love

A Feast of Faith and Gratitude

And Blessings from Above

 

The Fruit of Spirit ripening

In the Light of Truth Divine

The Harvest is Eternal

On Purpose by design

 

It Is So and So It Is

So Be It
