“Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love we put in that action.”  Mother Teresa

 

Love when we wake

And love when we rise

Love when we’re walking

And touching blue skies

 

Love when we’re silent

And love when we speak

Love when we know that

There’s nothing to seek

 

Love when we’re working

And love when we rest

Love when we wonder

‘Have we done our best?’

 

Love when we’re watching

And love as we play

Love when we’re dancing

And finding our way

 

Love is the answer

To all questions asked

Love will transport you

To Now from the past

 

Love is the Beauty

And Love is the Peace

Love is the Joy

That brings sweet release

 

Love begins softly

In both home and heart

Love creates heaven

With Life as pure art

 

Love

Now

 

It Is So and So It Is

“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

“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

“Let us always meet each other with a smile,  for the smile is the beginning of love.” Mother Teresa
To smile as the sun washes over the day
To smile as the dew glistens bright
To smile on the wings of the butterfly
To smile as the dove takes flight
For a smile is the nectar of our soul
Bringing sweetness into our day
And a smile strums the chords within our hearts
Creating the songs that we play
To smile as the flowers, the smile of God
To smile as the sparkling-eyed child
To smile as the babbling brook, to laugh
To smile watching Love run wild
For a smile is the nectar of our soul
Bringing sweetness into our day
And a smile strums the chords within our hearts
Creating the songs that we play
Let us always meet each other with a smile
Let us ever be joyous and light
Let us begin our song with Love and Peace
Let us so end our song each night
For a smile is the nectar of our soul
Bringing sweetness into our day
And a smile strums the chords within our hearts
Creating the songs that we play
Smile
It Is So and So It Is
So Be It

” Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…” Psalm 23:67
Through time and space I’ve traveled
Setting foot on this terrain
I use them both as avenues
Yet unlimited I remain
Eternity, my birthplace
No beginning and no end
My choices surely infinite
When Mind I carefully tend
The treasure chest is open
And Truth outpours to me
Embodying what’s given
Will ever set me free
Transformed, I know the permanence
Of Heaven here on earth
Expressions of this Infinite Mind
Through each is given birth
And Blessings fall like petals
Reality revealed
When my mind joins the One Mind
No thing will be concealed
And surely Goodness follows me
With Mercy ever near
Abiding in the Presence
Eternity is here
It Is So and So It Is

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”  Martin Luther King, Jr.

The starless midnight

Dissolving Now

As Daylight surely breaks

 

The dawn of Truth

Emerging Now

Gives Light, that overtakes

 

This gentle rise

O’retaking Now

Dissolves the dark and then

 

The flame of Love

Heartwarming Now

Gives Happiness again

 

The veil is lifting

Seeing Now

A view of life that’s more

 

The Light of Mind

Transforming Now

Gives all an open door

 

The daybreaks bright

For Peace is Now

The final word is Love

 

And Brotherhood 

Is Known right Now

The Truth we’re worthy of

 

It Is So and So It Is

“I want to know God’s thoughts. The rest are details.”
Albert Einstein
I want to know God’s thoughts
For Here is where Truth lies
Like golden threads announcing
Emerging Butterflies
I want to know God’s thoughts
In stillness they arrive
The whispers of Eternity
The voice within the dive
I want to know God’s thoughts
To peer beyond the veil 
To see the Miracles untold
In Oneness, to inhale
I want to know God’s thoughts
To speak with Heart and Soul
Aware, Alert, Creating
Vibrations of the Whole
I want to know God’s thoughts
With Mind centered in Peace 
The Essence and the Heart of Love
The Goodness, the Release
I want to know God’s thoughts
The rest are just details
Moments scattered, caught in Time
Markers, paths and trails
I want to Know God’s thoughts
Let God Be God as me
The image and the likeness
Magnificent and Free
It Is So and So It Is
So Be It
