Peace & Blessings

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” Mother Teresa

 

Kindness knocked upon my door

I gladly opened wide

She took my hand and entered

Then sat right by my side

 

Her words, like Springtime in the air

Brought freshness to my heart

The dross of life transforming

To portraits of great art

 

She wrapped me in the melody

Harmonious and true

I danced upon the notes and rose

To heights I never knew

 

The room now glowing golden

Was filled with pulsing light

Revealing that my essence

Was kind and clear and bright

 

With Kindness I was rising

To meet the Truth of me

The Love, the Peace, the Joy that are

My true Reality

 

A living, kind expression

Of Goodness everywhere

From heart to face through eyes and smiles

It’s Kindness that we share

 

Perhaps the greatest gift of all

She whispered in my ear

She’s not a fleeting visitor

For Kindness now lives here

 

It Is So and So It Is

“For all things proceed out of this same spirit, which is differently named love, justice, temperance, in its different applications, just as the ocean receives different names on the several shores which it washes.” Emerson

 

An ocean of Goodness is washing me now

A Love that is wholly complete

A Kind understanding for each and all

A Peace that will never retreat

 

A sea of Bliss is touching each shore

Compassionate waves rise and fall

A Joyful expression of Beauty within

A Truth that the many are All

 

All Knowing

All Seeing

All Loving

All Now

All Wisdom

All Action

All Ways

 

Revealing this ocean, we rise and we fall

The bubbles becoming the sea

We create each wave, we wash on each shore

Magnificent, Whole, we are Free

 

It Is So and So It Is

” Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.” Proverbs 3:17

 

The door swung open as I stirred

A golden light did shine

A fragrance sweet and beaconing

An opening in time

 

I entered in without a pause

I welcomed this retreat

To stand Now in Eternity

To breathe, to feel complete

 

Her ways are ways of Pleasantness

And all her paths are Peace

Allowing all the walls to fall

I melt in sweet release

 

Etheric music filled the air

Each note was lifting me

I danced the dance of timelessness

Let go, and I was free

 

Her gentle face, her kind embrace

The Cosmos in her smile

I’m lost and found within the Now

I rest and stay a while

 

Her ways are ways of Pleasantness

And all her paths are Peace

Allowing all the walls to fall

I melt in sweet release

 

The heartbeat of the Infinite

A rhythm pulsing true

The Universe in motion

Her gifts seeded in you

 

Her patterns are revealing

In the tapestry she weaves

I’m seeing for the first time

One sees as one believes

 

Her ways are ways of Pleasantness

And all her paths are Peace

Allowing all the walls to fall

Come melt in sweet release

 

It Is So and So It Is

“…and prove me now herewith, saith The Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it…”  Malachi 3:10

 

And Blessings fall like petals

On springtime’s gentle breeze

Filling the air with fragrance

Filling the soul with Peace

 

And gathering them in baskets

They quickly overflow

Releasing all that’s given

Releasing all we know

 

And you cannot contain

The Blessings you receive

They’re meant to be passed on

They’re meant to be set free

 

And Grateful hearts receive them

And send them on their way

Their bounty simply multiplies

Their bounty fills each day

 

And now the Gratitude

Is raining down as well

The Blessing of the Blessing

The Blessing that we tell

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”   Mother Teresa

 

Let us begin where we are today

Let us begin with Peace

Let us begin to open our hearts

Let us begin to release

 

Let us begin with Beauty today

Let us begin with Grace.

Let us begin to see beyond form

Let us begin to embrace

Let us begin to listen within

Let us go deeper and hear

 

Let us begin with Compassion today

Let us begin to care

Let us begin to feel in our hearts

Let us begin to share

 

Let us begin to smile today

Let us hold hands and walk free

Let us begin to laugh today

Let us magnificent Be

 

Let us begin

“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

“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered nor come into mind.”  Isaiah 65:17

 

Acceptance walks with me today

The path is bright and clear

Established in the Present

In Trust, I let go fear

 

Faith is holding out its hand

Inviting mine to meet

I feel the Present in the grasp

In Trust, I am complete

 

Enthusiasm speaks my name

I listen and I hear

That standing in the Present

In Trust, brings Goodness near 

 

Compassion drapes itself on me

The calmness that I feel

Brings the Present to my heart

In Trust, I know its real

 

Joy is lighting this new earth

And Beauty’s everywhere

The Present is the place to be

In Trust, I freely share

 

Peace and Love, it’s Heaven

Created here and now

On earth receive the Present

In Trust, no need for how 

 

The past has faded out of sight

The future, heaven’s dream

The Present is the entry

In Trust, Live is this stream

 

It Is So and So It Is

So Be It
