” Everybody can be great.  Because anybody can serve.  You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.  You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve.  You only need a heart full of grace.  A soul generated by love.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
 
Today I rise to serve
I’m purposeful and clear
For service fueled by Spirit
Is Love arriving here
Today my heart of Grace
Knows Love is at its core
For Grace is born of Spirit
And Love from Grace does pour
Today I plant Kind seeds 
And Love is now set Free
For Spirit’s Kindness sprouts 
From roots of Love you see
 
Today I will be great
With Joy I’ll serve and give
Allowing Spirit’s Love
To root and grow and live.
 
It Is So and So It Is 
So Be It

“Kind hearts are the gardens,

Kind thoughts are the roots,

Kind words are the blossoms,

Kind deeds are the fruits.”

19th century rhyme used in primary schools

 

 

Kind hearts are the gardens 

 I sow seeds with care

 I water with love

 I tend and I share

 

 

 Kind thoughts are the roots

 I trust and I know

 I set pure intention

 I watch Kind plants grow

 

 

 Kind words are the blossoms

 I speak them to all

 They shower like rain 

 I hear blessings fall

 

 

Kind deeds are the fruits

 I watch them abound

 I harvest, I share

 I stand on Love’s ground

 

 

For Kindness  is Grace

And Grace moves with Peace

With Trust and with Knowing

With Goodness and Ease

 

 

With Kindness of Heart

The Wisdom of Love

Life in this garden

Yields fruits undreamed of

 

 

 It Is So and So It Is

” You are not just the drop in the ocean,  you are the mighty ocean in the drop.” Rumi

 

I feel it in the rising tide

A stirring deep within

I watch it wash away the old

I hear it call, “Begin again”

 

I see it in the river’s course

It moves with certainty

I watch it toss and tumble stones

I hear it call, “Be Free!”

 

I feel it in the rising sun

A dancing 0rb in space

I watch the rhythmic pulse in time

I hear it , “Take your place”

 

 I see it in the mountain lake

Reflecting  golden sun

I watch it ripple with the breeze

I hear it call, “Be One”

 

I feel it in the gentle rain

It washes over me

The mighty ocean in the drop

Returning me to Me

 

It Is So and So It Is

“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”       Khalil Gibran

Like a child at play

I imagine, I feel

Keeping it simple

Keeping it Real

 

Life is for dancing

For laughing out loud

For running up mountains

For gazing at clouds

 

Life is for shining

For catching your dream

A walk in the park

A glide down the stream

 

Life is for thinking

The thought that frees

A delightful adventure

With lightness and ease

 

Life is for giving

For sharing your part

An Apple tree loaded

A compassionate heart

 

Feet on the ground

Wind in my hair

I will dance

I will shine

I will think

I will give

I will Be mySelf fully

And magnificently Live

 

It It So and So It Is

So Be It

“…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness, faith…” Galatians 5:22

 

The door swung wide this morning

And Goodness came right in

She smiled and held me in her arms

And Ease as here again

 

With Faith there now came Gentleness

And Wisdom spoke so true

They gave themselves completely

Inviting in the New

 

A New Appreciation

Of all that’s ever been

A New Awakened state of Mind

Embracing life again

 

As Joy swept in and sparkled

And Beauty filled all space

The room glowed in a golden light

Revealing there dear Grace

 

And Peace descended silently

And Calm was in the room

All Time was swept from consciousness

And New was in full bloom

 

A New Experience of life

No limits and no bounds

A New Creative impulse

‘Twas this that I had found

 

And Love was beating as my heart

And Passion rose to speak

All gifts of God are Here and Now

There’s no thing you need seek

 

The fruit of Spirit ever yours

Just let the Blessings in

The trees abundantly do yield

Each moment you begin

 

It Is So and So It Is

So Be it

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” John I:5
 
A light is shining bright today
A radiant glow, a beam
The shimmer of the vibrancy
Enlivens every scene
 
It’s golden and transparent
The dark of night dissolved
The rhythmic dance of particles
Illumined and evolved
 
The mists of morning disappear
Like tears, they wash and clear
A tapestry is woven
All Goodness does appear
 
There’s Beauty and there’s Joy now
There’s Peace that calms and breathes
Each atom pulses with the Love
Expanding, this light frees
 
The light shines in the darkness
Which comprehends it not
For it is No thing substantive
Dispelled when lit with thought
 
Now turning thoughts to Goodness
Now seeing with new eyes
Now knowing with full certainty
In Love’s light, darkness flies
 
It Is So and So It Is

“Unhappy is he who mistakes the branch for the tree, the shadow for the substance.”  The Talmud

 

Awaken! Now open your eyes to the Real

Breathe! Now connect to your Source

Act! Now express from your Heart and feel

Smile! Now Good comes in due course

 

Under the canopy of Heavenly stars

We walk this earth and we see

Ours is the gift of reMembering

Allowing our Minds to be free

 

Gone is the grasping at branches that break

Gone is the wild shadow dance

Gone is attachment to stories that bind

Gone is the slumbering trance

 

No longer mistaking the branch for the tree

No longer do shadows entrance

No longer believing old patterns and forms

You’re free now to live your essence

 

Awaken! It is Goodness that you will find

Breathe! It is Peace at your core

Act! It is Love now that animates

Smile! It is Joy evermore

 

It is So and So It Is
