“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

“…my cup runneth over.”  Psalm 23:5
Abundance greets me everywhere
The blossoms on the trees
ReMind me of the Plentitude
That dances on the breeze
More Good than I have ever held
More Joy than I’ve yet known
More Peace than I have understood
These higher States I’m shown
The State of Gratitude and Grace
The State of Clarity
The State of Calm Connection
The State of Purity
The Purity of Spirit
The Purity of Soul
The Purity of Living life
And Knowing Overflow 
For everything is given
In Gratitude receive
Allow yourself the Clarity
That comes as you believe
More Good than you have ever held
More Joy than you’ve yet known
More Peace than you have understood
These higher States you’re shown
It Is So and So It Is

“Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.”  Paramahansa Yogananda


The morning sun has dawned today

Like smiling, golden Light

Awakening my sleeping soul

That it may smile as bright


The quiet of the early morn

The diamond dew on green

The song of countless birds on wing

These smiles my heart has seen


My eyes alive now with the smiles

That soul and heart have brought

Reflecting out into my world

For smiles cannot be caught


They stream like sunbeams everywhere

Their radiance is Love

Their secret is that they deliver

Goodness from above


How perfect that the soul should be

The messenger to heart

And heart will pass the Love along

Through eyes that then impart


It’s Love and Peace they scatter

It’s Joy that’s been released

And sad hearts brighten quickly

As rich smiles are unleashed



For It Is So and So It Is

“And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us…” Psalm 90:17


‘Twas Beauty that I saw today

In dawn sky’s golden rose 

‘Twas Beauty in the verdant greens

Along the path that grows


“Twas Beauty in the baby’s smile

And Beauty that I caught

When walking into bustling streets

There’s nowhere Beauty’s not


When gazing beyond what appears

And finding Beauty’s gifts

Discovering them everywhere

For all things, Beauty lifts


It takes the simple and the plain

It elevates the coarse

For Beauty is a quality

Of Love’s own mighty force


“Twas Beauty that accompanied me

From dawn to dusk, to night

“Twas Beauty in the tapestry 

Of each star’s shimmering light


I let the Beauty of the Lord

The Great Law that reveals

Be with me and upon me

I’m trusting how it feels


‘Tis Beauty wrapping me in Love

‘Tis Beauty breathing me

‘Tis Beauty guiding every step

‘Tis Beauty to be Free


It Is So and So It Is

“The garden of love is green without limit, and yields many fruits beyond sorrow or joy.  Love is beyond either condition: without spring, without autumn, it is always fresh.”   Rumi


The Garden of Love is green

It’s limitless and Pure

It’s blossoms without season

It’s fruit that does endure


I’m walking in this Garden

A colorful display

The fragrances intoxicate

As Love blooms every day 


Arriving in the Garden

I reCognize what’s Real

This Love that blooms so freely

Is Love that I can feel


And sitting in the Garden

Peace washes over me

A calm, serene experience

ReMinding me to Be


Now pausing in the Garden

The Blessings raining down 

The freshness of this Love

Is worn like Heaven’s Crown


All seasons in the garden

Are sharing Love with me

The changing patterns amplify

Love’s depths for all to see


And visiting the garden

Brings Beauty and Delight

Beyond life’s joys and sorrows

It’s Love that shines it’s Light


It Is So and So It Is

“The Soul’s communication…and God, which has loved us…comforts your hearts, and establishes you in every good word and work .”  II Thessalonians 2:16-17


A Presence of Good is holding us now

It’s everywhere, right where we stand

An All-knowing Wisdom is leading us on

A gentle and comforting hand


A Song of All Good is singing to us

It’s drumming in rhythms we know

A Harmony striking the golden chords

A melody, creating flow


A Field of Goodness is waiting for us

It’s Infinite, never runs out

An opening into Eternity

And this is what Living’s about


For God, which is Good is Loving us

It’s comforting, opening hearts

Established in word, it demonstrates

In our work, as we play our part 


A Presence of Good is holding us now

A Song of All Good sings within

A Field of Goodness is everywhere

And Love is the place we begin


It Is So and So It Is

“I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.”    Psalm 13:6    
With me, as me, through me Now
The Law of Life made known
A bountiful reflection of
The Mind of Good is shown
An Idea in the Mind of Good
A seed-thought cast in time
Now planted in the Open Field
It’s watered by Divine 
And taking sprout, the thought does grow
A plant turned toward the Light
As blossoms bud, the thought takes form
It holds the Truth of sight
Of dropping veils, of clarity
From dream-states, Now awake
The fragrance of the Blessings
Like food that we partake
An idea in the Mind of Good
A rising song of Praise
And Blessings fall like petals
As Goodness Now displays
With us, as us, through us Now
Magnificent are we
When married to the Mind of Good
We live life bountifully
It Is So and So It I
