” 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

“Blessed be The Lord…there hath not failed one word of his good promise.” I Kings 8:56

A Promise given freely

A Promise without time

A Promise of the Here and Now

A Law of Life divine

 

A Promise of a Presence

That guides and nurtures me

A Promise of a Wisdom

That speaks of living free

 

A Promise of Abundance

That supplies every need

A Promise of a Wholeness

Revealed in every seed

 

A Promise of a Peace

That breathes inside of me

A Promise of a Joy

That lights my path to see

 

A Promise of a Grace

That moves with splendid ease

A Promise of a Sweetness

Like honey from the bees

 

A Promise of a Love

That blankets everything

A Promise of a Goodness

That everywhere does sing

 

A Promise of Forever

Of vision that is clear

A Promise of a Heaven

No need to wait, it’s Here

 

A Promise given freely

A Promise beyond time

A Promise that is Here and Now

To Live your Life Divine

 

It Is So and So it Is

So Be It

“Love… it surrounds every being and extends slowly to embrace all that shall be.”  Khalil Gibran

A mighty Love

Is filling me

An our-pouring 

Of Goodness Be

 

Like rain, let Love

Wash over me

An over-flow

Of Peace, I’m Free

 

Nowhere it’s not 

Both high and low

Aware of it

This Joy does grow

 

Upon the shore

On mountain peak

Alive with it

Of Beauty speak

 

A mighty Love

Surrounding all

Extends its reach

Embrace the call

 

To see it rise  

In dawning sun

Let colors wash

Your day with fun

 

To hold it Now

Within your heart

To shine it out

To do your part

 

To feel it’s touch

On gentle breeze

Your body quakes

As your Mind frees

 

A mighty Love

Is filling me

An our-pouring 

Of Goodness Be

 

Like rain, let Love

Wash over me

An over-flow

Of Peace, I’m Free

 

It Is So and So It Is

“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds…” Philippians 4:7

Peace Is filling every space

Peace is deep within

Cradled in its warm embrace

Releasing, I begin

 

Peace is ever breathing me

Peace is speaking here

Quieted by its soothing voice

Listening, I am clear

 

Peace is opening the way

Peace is leading me

Guided into ease and grace

Following, I am free

 

Peace is keeping Hearts and Minds

Peace beyond what’s known

Opened Now, above all else

Trusting, All is shown 

 

 It Is So and So It Is

“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
