“He who is happy within, who rejoiceth within, who is illuminated within, that Yogi, becoming the eternal, goeth to the Peace of the eternal.” The Bhagavad-Gita

Happiness, seated within us right Now

It needs no condition, no well-defined how

It simply resides there, awaiting our call

Happiness stands ready to give of the All

Rejoice and give voice to the Joy that’s within 

It bursts at your seams, it wants to begin 

It quivers, it tickles, it rocks and it shakes

Joy’s Eternal song, is all that it takes

Light that does shine, like the noonday sun

It only gets brighter, once you’ve begun

It dispels the darkness, exposes the fear

Illumined with vision from All, fully clear

Within there is Happiness, Joy and Light

Within there is Love that burns ever-bright

Revealing a Peace, that words cannot tell

Forever, unending, an Eternal well

Becoming the Eternal, a journey to Peace

Going within, allowing release

Transcendent qualities setting you free

Breathe now, listen, then simply Be

It Is so and So It Is

So Be It

“Every being has the Buddha Nature. It is the self.”  Mahaparinirvana 214

When thoughts arise within my mind 

I check their content first 

I ask if this thought reflects Good 

If not, it is reversed 

The world presents me many things 

My thoughts are mine alone 

I have a choice to find the pearl 

When sand rubs me, they’re grown 

So what’s the rub when fear’s afoot 

And what’s my business here 

To pause, recalibrate the thoughts 

With breath, to become clear 

For there is more than meets the eye 

Each one unique and whole 

Your purpose is to reflect Love 

Think from your Heart and Soul 

It is your Nature, don’t you know 

The Christ Light, Buddha’s Peace 

It is the Self, seated within  

And here we find Release 

It Is So and So It Is

“Through Love all that is bitter will be sweet, through Love all that is copper will be gold, through Love all dregs will become wine, through Love all pain will turn to medicine.”   Rumi
Love in our midst
That’s what we know
Ever within us
Wanting to grow
Love is the Light
Guiding our way
Showing its face
Brightening each day
Love is the first cause
The One Mind in all
Listen, it’s speaking
Answer the call
The call to see Rightly
The call to Wake up
The call to dismantle
The lies that disrupt
The call to be watchful
The call stay True
The call to shine Light
When darkness moves through
For Love will transform
It shape shifts what’s “wrong”
Reveals the illusion
And sings Heaven’s song
As bitter becomes sweet
And copper turns gold
The dregs become wine
And pain has no hold
For Love is the first cause
The way that’s been laid
The Light in the darkness
The Truth well displayed
It Is So and So It Is

“Every natural object is a conductor of divinity and only by coming into contact with them… may we be filled with the Holy Ghost.”      John Muir

Walk upon the grass today 

Let green blades touch your Soul 

Awakening, Revealing 

The Truth that you are Whole 

The parts are an illusion 

Mistakes do not exist 

The Holy Ghost, Divinity 

Has touched you, you’ve been kissed 

Bury your nose into a Rose 

Let the smell of Love be yours 

Embodying the Sweetness 

Now open wide Truth’s doors 

The view of separation falls 

The flower and the bee 

The Holy Ghost, Communion 

Unites you, sets you Free 

An apple hangs upon the tree

Let the taste of Heaven sing 

Enlivening, Expressing 

The Truth in everything 

The past may cast its shadow 

ReMinding you to breathe 

The Holy Ghost, the breath of God 

Now lifts you from beneath 

Clouds are dancing across the sky 

Let the visions entertain 

Imagining and Seeing 

Shapes shift, yet Truth remains 

The mists no longer cloud 

The world in which you live 

The Holy Ghost gives light 

You see and you forgive 

A still small voice is speaking 

Let One Mind now be heard 

Expand this Holy Union 

Give Truth the final word 

It Is So and So It Is

“ To love is to know Me, My innermost nature, the truth that I am.”  The Bhagavad-Gita

There is only One Truth, and that Truth is Love

The Light that lights up each and All

There’s nothing to seek,  there’s but one thing to do

Just quiet the mind and recall

There is only One Truth, and that Truth is Love

It’s everywhere active, it’s Now

Now tuning the thoughts to the One Mind of Love 

Just focus the mind and allow 

There is only One Truth, and that Truth is Love

It’s God’s face that smiles everywhere 

Rejoice in the Knowing, embody the Love 

Just balance the mind, be aware 

To Love is to Know 

The Truth that I Am 

Your innermost nature, within 

To act from the Love 

The Truth of I Am 

It’s Here that you Now must begin 

It Is So and So It Is 

So BE It 

Love

“To attain this subtle realization, you must completely cut off the way of thinking.”  Mumonkan 1

The small mind will ponder and question and fret 

The small mind thinks thoughts from the past 

I’m opening Now to the Power of Mind 

Receiving Good’s timeless broadcast 

The small mind is thinking and weighing all sides 

The small mind sees only what’s been 

I’m opening Now to the Wisdom of Mind  

Providing the Light from within 

The small mind is questioning, seeking to know 

The small mind is lost in the dark 

I’m opening Now to the Presence of Mind 

Revealing that Infinite spark 

The small mind is frozen, unsure where to go 

The small mind sees shadows, not Light 

I’m opening Now to the Action of Mind 

Engaging my Divine Birthright 

For I Am the Creation of All-Knowing Mind 

I Am Here by Conscious design 

I Am One with Infinite Peace and Love 

As One Mind, I Am Here to Shine 

It Is So and So It Is 

So BE It 

Shine

“The Tao cannot be heard; what can be heard is not It. 

The Tao cannot be seen; what can be seen is not It.” 

The Texts of Taoism

The Tao is the Spirit, the One Light and Love 

The Tao is forever in place 

Producing and nourishing, maintaining All 

The Tao is the Oneness, the Grace 

The Tao is the Presence, Proclaiming the Truth 

The Tao is the Source and the Root 

The One Mind, the One Heart, the One Breath we breathe 

The Tao is the One absolute 

My thoughts are now ordered, my mind joins the One 

I live and I act in accord 

The Tao at the center, coherence throughout 

The Tao is Now striking the chord 

The Tao, ever-singing a song beyond ears 

It’s visions are dancing, unseen 

Aligning our Mind with the Tao, we behold 

In the Tao, there is no in between 

It Is So and So It Is
