“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

“All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” Matthew 28:18

 

I live in the Presence

The Power of One

Surrendering the small mind

True Life is begun

 

I live in the Presence

The fullness, the Truth

I enter the Kingdom

The Fountain of Youth

 

Each thought that is born Here

Is Boundless and Free

The Field of Potential

Just waiting for Me

 

I live in the Presence

Of limitless Good

I let go and smile now

For I’ve understood

 

To live in the Presence

To open the door

The Power of Love Here

Peace washing the shore

 

Joy dawns at each sunrise

Grace throughout the day

Faith painting the sunset’s

Magnificent display

 

All Power is given

In Heaven and Earth

Surrender, Let Go

Your time of rebirth

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”  Rumi

 

Like the rose that emerges from the bush full of thorns

Like snowflakes of crystalline form

Like the mountain stream bursting its banks to be free

I am changing, becoming much more

 

Like the sun that is rising and chasing the dark

Like the ocean waves washing the shore

Like the clouds holding treasures of water within

I am changing, becoming much more

 

Being clever I’ve noticed the things that are wrong

And at times they have captured the view 

Today I am wiser and gazing within

Transforming, becoming the True

 

Like the caterpillar melting, to dance on the breeze

Like apple seeds held in the core

Like the acorn that yields to the mighty oak

I am changing, becoming much more

 

It Is So and So It Is

” And the Kingdom of Heaven is within you; and whosoever shall know himself shall find it.  Strive therefore to know yourselves, and ye shall be aware that ye are the sons of the …Father; and ye shall know that ye are in the City of God, and ye are that City.” Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, words of Jesus the Christ

 

I wake in the City

Aglow with true Light

I open my eyes 

EnJOYing New Sight 

 

The colors are brilliant

They spill into me

They waken my senses 

They color me Free

 

The sounds become music

Celestial refrain

They pulse through my body 

They dance in my brain

 

The smells have a fragrance

Of sweetness and Love

Filling each Breath

Reveals Peace from above

 

The air in the City

Is rarified, Pure

It Breathes me with Grace

It’s gentle and sure

 

I wake in the City

And here I remain

My travels, adventures

That promise me gain

 

The City within

Builds the City without

The Light in the darkness

Eternal… no doubt

 

It Is So and So It Is

” Sin is an obstruction in the heart; an inability to feel and comprehend all that is noble, true and great, and to take part in the good. If man is to be free from sin, his mind and heart must be opened to the influence of enlightenment.” The Talmud
 
I see a path within the woods
A light that’s glowing bright
It beckons me to walk this way
It promises deLight
 
No longer tripping on myself
No longer feeling fear
I walk this way and soon I see
All Goodness is right here
 
I sit now in an open glade
My Breath now leading me
This spaciousness a calm reprieve 
My heart is beating free
 
There’s Beauty in these woods and glades
I’ve come here to explore
Discovering this place in me
Reached through an open door
 
With heart wide open, mind set free
I twirl, I sing, I dance
I move with Peace, wheree’r I go
I live magnificence
 
I walk this path, within the woods
I comprehend what’s True
It’s Goodness that is born to Life
It’s Oneness that’s in view
 
It Is So and So It

” There is naught whatsoever higher than I…All this is threaded on Me, as rows of pearls on a string.”   The Bhagavad-Gita

 

I’m stringing a necklace of all that I see

I’m choosing the pearls Divine

I’m seeing life Now, the Truth revealed

It’s Beauty and Love that I find

 

I’m stringing a necklace of all that I feel

I’m diving in the ocean of Bliss

I’m allowing the sand to become the pearl

It’s Joyous remembering this

 

I’m stringing a necklace of all that I know

I’m polishing the pearls with release

I’m holding them up now to catch the light

It’s shimmering, deepening Peace

 

I’m stringing a necklace of All of the All

I’m wearing it day and night

I’m keeping the pearls ever-close to my heart

It’s Truth at the center of Light

 

For nothing is higher than Love itself

Evolving Perfection aligned

Creation unfolding, Revealing more

Pearls born of  the One, Divine Mind

 

It Is So and So It Is

” I see humanity now as one vast plant, needing for its highest fulfillment only love, the natural blessings of the great outdoors, and intelligent crossing and selection.”  Luther Burbank
 
In Love you’ll find the answer
For questions as they sprout
Like plants that seek the sunlight
It’s Love they need, not doubt
 
While fear hides in the corner
Shrouded in the dark
Love comes forward, as a Light
And fear leaves not a mark
 
Breath calms and quiets thinking
Allowing in the Light
Now sprouting questions open
Find Love a welcome sight
 
Just as the sprout loves sunlight
And gentle rains to grow
Our questions are no different
And Love will guide, we know
 
And reaching deep, they root
In Trust they stand and rise
Now Clarity revealing
Love does not compromise
 
In Love you’ll find the answer
For questions as they sprout
Like plants that seek the sunlight
It’s Love they need, not doubt
 
It Is So and So It Is

“Again, the kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field; which when a man has found, he hides; and for joy thereof goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field.”  Matthew 13:44

 

The kingdom of Heaven, a treasure within

Carefully placed in the Field

Discovering this treasure, unlocking the chest

We experience a life that is Real

 

The kingdom of Heaven, a treasure within

No searching outside, and no strain

Just Breathe and look inward, now ask and receive 

All manner of jewels you will gain

 

There’s pearls of wisdom, strung to wear

There’s diamonds of brilliance and light

There’s a heart of gold that knows all good

There’s peace shining silvery bright

 

The kingdom of Heaven, a treasure within

Adornments, that Truth does Reveal

For all has been given to those that receive

Embodied through Breath, Love’s ideal

 

The kingdom of Heaven, a treasure within

Carefully placed in your Field

Discover your treasure, unlock your chest

Experience your life that is Real

 

It Is So and So It Is

So Be It

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

 

Awash with Love

I am bathed in a world of Goodness

Carried on the waves of Kindness

I glide through Life with Ease and Grace

 

Ignited with Joy 

I am aglow in a world of Goodness

Shimmering on the rays of Freedom

I light my Life with Passion and Enthusiasm

 

The names may change

God, Source, Universal intelligence

Atman, Allah, Wakan Tanka 

The attributes remain steadfast

 

Love, Beauty, Joy, Peace

Kindness, Trust, Gratitude, Compassion

I wake to the world of Goodness

I walk the path of Peace

 

I stand in unconditional Love

I speak the words of Truth

I laugh with contagious Joy

I see magnificent Beauty

 

 It Is So and So It Is

” Thy sun shall no more go down, neither shall thy moon withdraw itself, for The Lord shall be thy everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.” Isaiah 60:20

 

The sun is Now rising, the darkness is gone

A new day has dawned from within

Awake Now and seeing, the shadows, they fade

Right Here, in this moment, begin

 

No ties bind the soul Now, no walls can contain

Your Spirit set Free in the Light

Unlimited vision, the mountaintop view

The Field of Potential in sight

 

The Lord is the Law, of a Universe of Light

Eternity dancing with form

Out of the darkness all Goodness appears

Light rising within does transform

 

The Light everlasting, the Love ever-pure

The Joy dancing free like the breeze

The Peace flows like water, the Blessings like rain

Life moves with incredible ease

 

The sun is Now rising, the darkness is gone

A new day has dawned from within

Awake Now and seeing, the shadows, they fade

Right Here, in this moment, begin

 

 It Is So and So It Is
