“When the mind is cleansed by the grace of wisdom, he is seen by contemplation–the One without parts.”  Mundane Upanishad

 

A voice is speaking as I wake

It begs me, “Lend an ear”

A drum is sounding, steady tones

Awake, the words are clear

 

My heart is taking up the beat

It fills my every cell

So steady is the rhythm now

I’m feeling what words tell

 

It speaks of Wholeness and of Love

It breathes into me, Peace

I’m floating in the Sea of Bliss

Allowing, I release

 

And Joy is coursing through me now

The pulse electrifies

The Beauty and the Ecstasy

Expands and magnifies

 

My mind is cleansed and purified

The veils now fall away

The Grace of Wisdom shone it’s Light

On this new holy day

 

It’s only One, without parts

That weaves this tapestry

A drape of Love for each and All

Transformed, we are set Free

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity.”  Habakkuk 1:13

 

My eyes too pure to look upon

The evils that some see

My Mind too fixed on Good, my God

Right thinking is the key

 

Infinite Mind created each

With Freedom at the core

To gaze into this world of Good

Right thinking expands more

 

Affirming Good in everything

I Breathe the breath of Peace

I listen to the small, still voice

Right thinking cannot cease

 

Like manna, the ideas appear

Heaven’s table set

To never hunger for the past

Right thinking, not regret

 

The living waters rush and flow 

I drink the Truth of Love

Quenched now, no longer thirsting

Right thinking, from above

 

My eyes too pure to look upon

The evils that some see

My Mind too fixed on Good, my God

Right thinking is the key

 

It Is So and So It Is

Passion burns down every branch of exhaustion;

Passion’s the Supreme Elixir and renews all things;

No one can grow exhausted when passion is born!

Don’t sigh heavily, your brow bleak with boredom;

Look for passion, passion, passion, passion!     Rumi

 

 

Passion lit a fire

Love provided flame

Enthusiasm fanned it

And nothing was the same

 

Light was ever-present

Darkness was no more

Ideas sparked and glittered

Like stars outside my door

 

Peace was in the atmosphere

Joy’s current was aglow

Gratitude was pulsing

And this is what I know

 

When Passion burns within us

When Love Lights every day

When Joy electrifies each step

Magnificence does play

 

Accept the Victory of your Life

Let Inspiration lead

Allow the Wise, Still voice to speak

For this all you need

 

As Passion lights the fire

As Love provides the flame

As Enthusiasm fans it

Nothing will be the same

 

It Is So and So It is

“Blind is this world. Few are those who clearly see.”  Dhammapada

 

God’s eyes are my eyes now

God’s hands, my very own

The likeness and the image

Not blind, all things are known

 

God’s heart is my heart now

God’s Mind is speaking me

The Goodness Known as Heaven

A song of Harmony

 

God’s Light is my Light now

God’s vision holds my view

The Beauty and the Glory

The Life that does renew

 

Blind is this world without the Light

For darkness clouds the Real

In Love’s pure Light, the darkness melts 

And Goodness does reveal

 

God’s eyes are my eyes now

God’s hands, my very own

The likeness and the image

Not blind, all things are known

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Another glorious…day in which one seems to be dissolved and absorbed and sent pulsing onward we know not where. Life seems neither long nor short, and we take no more heed to save time or make haste than to do the trees and stars. This is true freedom…” John Muir

 

A glorious day

Of Life, ever-changing

An eye-opening experience

Of energy transforming

 

 

A dissolution of one form

An emergence of another

A pattern of evolution

The rhythm of our Mother

 

 

A breath of fresh air

A rise and a fall

A cloudburst that washes

Revealing the All

 

 

A spiritual adventure

On wings that simply soar

A pulsing onward

Into Life that is more

 

 

A path that appears

A Faith that evolves

Light of a new day

As darkness dissolves

 

 

A Joyful adventure

A promise set Free

Loving expansions

Into Eternity

 

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”  I Corinthians 2:12

 

Freely given, another day

Glorious and full

Waking to these gifts of Good

My life is Beautiful

 

Freely given, Plentitude

Overflowing cup

Drinking in these gifts of Good

My life beyond “filled up”

 

Freely given, Truth is known

Clarity of Mind

Breathing in these gifts of Good

My life expanding time 

 

Freely given, Heart of Love

Unconditional and deep

Ever held,  these gifts of Good

My life is now complete

 

Freely given

Know and receive

 

It Is So and So it Is

“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 

 

Be Kind

It Is So and So It Is
