“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.”   Rumi

 

A Heart is forming where I stand

From stalks and stems, takes shape

With blossoms now, it’s growing

Upon life’s clear landscape

 

Within I feel the calling

Without the world does pull

I Breathe and listen carefully

For Now I am HeartFull

 

No longer hiding my True Self

No longer fighting life

I’m “letting go”, surrendering

No longer living strife

 

I’ve found a new internal Strength

The Power of my Source

‘Twas in me since the dawn of time

I’ve found it, in due course

 

Now Love is moving everything

And Peace is welling up

In Truth I am Magnificent

An overflowing cup

 

My Heart  Awakened, Jubilant

My Self in bloom, is found

For now I’m living from my Source

I stand on Holy Ground

 

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

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

 

Thousands of grains of sand upon

Thousands of ocean shores

Thousands of castles built and washed

Thousands of open doors

 

Thousands of feet that walk the earth

Thousands of hands that hold

Thousands of eyes that meet and see

Thousands of gifts unfold

 

Thousands of hearts that open wide

Thousands of smiles that shine

Thousands of breaths that animate

Thousands in One align

 

This is the time we waited for

We are the Ones that came

This the Moment to give our gifts

Magnificence ours to claim

 

Beyond the veils, Reality Is

Never was it not there

Waiting for us to reCognize

Waking, become Aware

 

The passage of time is relative

The darkness, with Light disappears

Carry your torch into the night

In Light’s Love dissolve your fears

 

Thousands of ways to travel home

Journeys that take you within

Thousands of ways to kiss the ground

Each one requires “Begin”

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Through Love all that is bitter will be sweet, through Love all that is copper will be gold, through Love all dregs will become wine, through Love all pain will turn to medicine.”   Rumi
 
Love in our midst
That’s what we know
Ever within us
Wanting to grow
 
Love is the Light
Guiding our way
Showing its face
Brightening each day
 
Love is the first cause
The One Mind in all
Listen, it’s speaking
Answer the call
 
The call to see Rightly
The call to Wake up
The call to dismantle
The lies that disrupt
 
The call to be watchful
The call to stay True
The call to shine Light
When darkness moves through
 
For Love will transform
It shape shifts what’s “wrong”
Reveals the illusion
And sings Heaven’s song
 
As bitter becomes sweet
And copper turns gold
The dregs become wine
And pain has no hold
 
For Love is the first cause
The way that’s been laid
The Light in the darkness
The Truth well displayed
 
It Is So and So It Is

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field, I’ll meet you there. 
When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.” Rumi
To dwell in the Field of Potential 
To rise like the dawning sun 
To know that your Mind holds your destiny 
To live from your Heart, as One 
 
To dwell in the Field of Expanding Good 
To stand at the mountain’s summit 
To know that your Mind is expansive 
To live from your Heart, without limit 
 
To dwell in the Field of Possibility 
To ask from the stillness within 
To know that your Mind has the answer 
To listen from your Heart, to begin 
 
To dwell in the Field beyond right or wrong 
To lie down in that grass, without words 
To know that your Mind dwells in silence 
To speak from your Heart, and be heard 
 
For this world is too full to talk about 
And this Field cannot be confined 
For this is the world of the Infinite 
And this Field is your own state of Mind 
 
 It Is So and So It Is

” Yea, thou shalt not find any variableness in the way of God.”  The Koran

 

Patterns that move through the ages of time

Steady and true to their course

Creation unending and birthing anew

Revealing a Powerful force

 

The Sun ever-rising from out of the East

And steadily climbing above

Then setting aflame the view in the West

Unchangeable labor of Love

 

The Stars set like diamonds across the vast sky

Giving Light, where once there was none

In a rhythm that’s ageless, the Moon joins the dance

No variableness in the ways of the One

 

The butterfly lifting on breezes that Free

Transcending an earth-bound cocoon

The melting and mingling of  the old and the new

To Life’s rhythm completely attune

 

My consciousness wakes, my heart opens wide

I’m seeing where once I was blind

The rhythms and patterns Unyielding and True

Surrendering to Love, I’ve aligned

 

Patterns that move through the ages of time

Steady and true to their course

Creation unending and birthing anew

Revealing One Powerful force

 

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
