“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

“Live each present moment completely, and the future will take care of itself. Fully enjoy the wonder and beauty of each instant. Practice the presence of peace. The more you do that, the more you will feel the presence of that power in your life.” Paramahansa Yogananda

 

A flower is blooming

A bird sings its song

A dew drop is glistening

And I’ve come along

 

I’ve entered the kingdom

Of wonder and awe

In Nature’s cathedral

I felt and I saw

 

I paused from projecting

A future unknown

I ended the chatter

Of past’s undertone

 

The swirl of the fern

Had now caught my eye

The caterpillar’s melt

The new butterfly

 

I’ve taken the full breath

The moment I’ve found

In the pause and the quiet

The Presence unbound

 

Forever unfolding

Evolving the new

The Power, the Beauty

The Love Here, for you

 

Live each Present moment

EnJOY what you see

Practice the Presence

Now Feel and you’re Free

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.”   Paramahansa Yogananda

 

Simply put, God is Love

Good that does not end

Simply put, to live in Love

Yields happiness, my friend

 

Simply put, Love supplies

Our every want and need

Simply put, a heart of Love

Unlocks doors, and you’re freed

 

Simply put, we’re blessed by Love

And prospered evermore

Simply put, Love’s weave is true

The single golden cord

 

Simply put, Love knows no bounds

Forget, forgive the lies

Simply put, Love is the Light

And in this Truth you rise

 

 

Simply put, life is for Love

Uncomplicated Peace

Simply put, Love’s always here

The breath that does not cease

 

Simply put, Eternal Love

Is central to us all

Simply put, let Love direct

Just listen, to the call

 

Simply put, God is Love

Good that does not end

Simply put, to live in Love

Yields happiness, my friend

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Everything, at first, is an idea, a special creation.”  Paramahansa Yogananda

 

Today I had a clear idea

It came “out of the blue”

It filled me with such ecstasy

A feeling that I knew

 

From before Time, this feeling rose

It rang a crystal chord

Reverberating endlessly

It freed me, and I soared

 

Spiritually inspired

It harmonized each cell

One Mind, acting through me

Within, All Good does dwell

 

And this idea is Heaven

It’s everywhere I go

Each place and person that I meet

ReMinds me and I know

 

That perfect Peace enfolds me

And pure Love lights the way

The Wisdom of the Infinite

Within, both night and day

 

It Is So and So It Is

“I will rise with the dawn and rouse my sleeping love to waken in the light of true devotion for the peace-God within.” Paramahansa Yogananda
I will rise at dawn each morning
I will rouse my sleeping Love
I will waken to devotion
I will live life from above
 I will dive into the ocean 
 I will ride the waves of Peace
 I will let go and allow
I will  live life in release
 I will jump into adventure
 I will lie in Joy’s embrace
 I will play now with abandon 
 I will live life from this place
 I will soar into the limitless 
 I will glide on wings of Grace
 I will know nothing of effort
I will live life  face-to-face
I will open doors to treasures
I will find them Here, within
I will feel this liquid magic
I will live life NOW..begin
 It Is So and So It Is

“With flowers, with bright skies, with the divine manna of Joy in happy minds, with souls full of wisdom, with songs of the birds, with divine melodies in the hearts of men, my Beloved is calling me to retrace my footsteps to His home of peace within.”   Paramahansa Yogananda

 

A melody is playing

   Can you hear it?

 A song is being sung

   Are you listening?

 A symphony is chorusing

   Can you hear it Now?

 

 

 A picture is being painted

   Can you see it? 

 A canvas is filling

   Are you watching?

 A masterpiece is revealing

   Can you see it Now?

 

 

 A mind is quieting 

   Can you feel it?

 A door is opening

   Are you entering?

 A heart is overflowing 

   Can you feel it Now?

 

 

 A flower is blossoming

  Can you smell it?

A Fragrance is wafting

   Are you catching it?

An aroma is beckoning

  Can you smell it Now?

 

 

The fruit has yielded

  Can you taste it?

A Divine ideation

  Are you savoring it? 

A sweetness so intoxicating

  Can you taste it Now?

 

 

With flowers and fruit

  Bright skies and sunshine

With Divine manna of Joy

  And  soul full Wisdom

A path has been made

 Retrace your footsteps

 

 

Your Beloved is calling

   In a thousand ways

The sanctuary is prepared

  Within the Heart

Peace held within

  Come Home……Now

 

 

 It Is So and So It Is

“Live each moment completely and the future will take care of itself. Fully enjoy the wonder and beauty of each moment.”  Paramahansa Yogananda

 

It’s Wonder that I see today

It’s beauty and it’s more 

It’s endless possibility

As I open wide the door

 

And quiet is the bustle

Of the world outside I see

While bright the light that’s streaming

Through the door and now through me

 

And woven through the light

I feel the rhythmic pulse of Love

It’s wonderful, it’s beautiful

Below, beside, above

 

It’s everywhere and no where

It’s no thing and it’s all

It’s beyond words yet audible

It’s Wonder after-all

 

Within each moment does exist

This field of pure deLight

Our pause to open wide that door

Brings Wonder into sight

 

It Is So and So It Is
