“There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.  There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.  You feel it, don’t you?”   Rumi



There is a candle in your Heart

Rekindle Now this flame

There is a star you follow

A promise to reclaim



There is a stillness held within

This Peace is palpable

There is communion great and small

Of Truth, infallible



There is a voice that’s guiding you

Divine Intelligence

There is a gift that’s given

Supreme Benevolence



There is a void within your soul

It’s ready to be filled

There is a Heart  that cries to Know

Of Destiny fulfilled



You feel it, don’t you, as you Breathe

The candle has been lit

Let Light now emanate from you

Your heart-felt Love-Spirit


It Is So and So It Is

So Be It

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.”  Rumi


A light that lights up everyone

A light that’s radiantly clear

A light that chases darkness

A light that brings Love near


A beauty that envelopes

A beauty each one feels

A beauty that is blossoming

A beauty that reveals


A dance that moves the cosmos

A dance that frees the soul

A dance that sets in motion

A dance that forms the whole


The art of living life complete

The art of Being true

The art of ever opening

The art revealed in you


A Light that’s Loving  

A Beauty Living 

A Dance that Opens

An Art Revealing


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
Let Wisdom be your calling card
Let Vision read your Mind
Let Joy propel each action
Let Peace be what you find
Let Wisdom see expansively
Let Beauty paint your view
Let Grace move through like waves
Let Ease be ever new
Let Wisdom be the first
Let Patience ever-last
Let Goodness overshadow
Let Mercy take you past
Let Wisdom listen kindly
Let Happiness abound
Let Gratitude be showered
Let Love be ever-found
Be wise now, take the journey
Be steady and be true
You’re worthy and you’re ready
For change to transform you 
It Is So and So it Is

“Knock, And He’ll open the door

Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun

Fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens

Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.”      Rumi


The door was open yesterday

The entryway was wide

I slipped right in, sat quietly

Found Love to sit beside


I vanished for a moment

I shined bright as the sun

The luminosity revealed

A Peace within the One


I felt the fall and letting go

I found that I was raised.  

And Goodness was revealed

The Heavens now I praised


A free-fall into Nothingness

With Trust as the wellspring

Becoming more and never less

Transformed, I’m everything


Now Passion took my hand

As Wisdom guided me

Into a life abundant

With possibility


The Breath of Spirit filled me

On wings I  glided free

I recognized No thing

That used to tether me


My eyes now fully open

The veils have dropped away

And in this State of Oneness

I Joyfully will stay


The Beauty and the Wonder

The Grace that paints each scene

A simple knock upon the door

A welcome opening


It Is So and So It Is

“There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground; there are a thousand ways to go home again.” Rumi


A thousand ways to home again

A multitude expanding

Goodness, shines its light on All

The gaze of understanding



My way, your way, each unique

For no thing is the same

Compassion enters quietly

As Spirit plays the game



For we are individual

Unique gifts in our hearts

Undivided from the whole

We choose and play our parts



A thousand times a thousand

The pathways we have found

Love, patiently awaits us

We kneel and kiss the ground



It Is So and So It Is

“Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed.”  Thich Nhat Hanh


Aware that this day is a Blessing

Aware in the opening dawn

Aware that the future will follow my thoughts

Aware that the past is gone


Aware that this day is a Blessing

Aware that there’s Peace right here

Aware the my breath is leading me home

Aware that I’m becoming clear


Aware that this day is a Blessing

Aware that my Joy’s light as air

Aware that it bubbles and brightens my smile

Aware that its gift is to share


Aware that this day is a Blessing

Aware that it’s Beauty I see

Aware that Goodness will follow my gaze

Aware that I’ve only to Be


Aware that this day is a Blessing

Aware that the treasure is Love

Aware that each moment is Precious

Aware that it flows from above


Aware that this day is a Blessing

Aware in each action performed

Aware that Divine’s Light is my Light

Aware now, alive now, Transformed


It Is So and So It Is

“Only from the heart can you touch the sky.” Rumi


I rise at dawn

Like the sun on high

I dance and I sing

I touch the sky


I sit in the stillness

No time goes by

I breathe into Oneness

I touch the sky


I glide down the stream

No need to try

I trust it will take me

I touch the sky


I open my heart

Like the wind I fly

I carry you with me

I touch the sky


I gaze into life

With a single eye

On wings of love

I touch the sky


It Is So and So It Is
