“Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear?” Lao Tzu

 

Do you have the patience

To let the water clear

To allow the mud to settle

To watch it without fear

 

Do you have the patience

To walk the extra mile

To follow paths less traveled

To open and to smile

 

Do you have the patience

To watch the flower bloom

To clear your mind of what you know

To always make more room

 

Do you have the patience

To babble with the brook

To silence all your stories

To take another look

 

Do you have the patience

To listen deep within

To hear the voice of Wisdom

To eagerly begin

 

Do you have the patience

To let the water clear

To allow the mud to settle

To pause and bring Life near

 

Do you have the patience?

 

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

“To work with God’s happiness bubbling in the soul is to carry a portable paradise within you wherever you go.” 
Paramahansa Yogananda
I woke today with happiness
I rose up feeling fine
I listened to the falling rain
I felt it wash my Mind
The freshness of the morning
The coolness of the air
The fragrance of the blossoms
Assured me I was there
It was Paradise I woke to
It was vibrant, it was clear
It was beckoning me to enter
It was whispering in my ear
“Just stay in this environment
No need to run away
Hold happiness within your soul
Know Paradise all day”
I loved the simple elegance
I loved the pulsing beat
I loved the feeling that I felt
I’m home and now complete
I’ll live this day in Paradise
I’ll sleep in its embrace
I’ll wake again tomorrow
I’ll stay within this space
It is Paradise I wake to
It is vibrant, it is clear
It is beckoning me to live Here
It is whispering in my ear
“Just stay in this environment
No need to run away
Hold happiness within your soul
Know paradise all day”
It Is So and So It Is
