“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

“We are born of love.  Love is our Mother.”   Rumi


Mother let me lie with you

Upon the verdant green

Let gentle breezes move me

Let Goodness now be seen


Mother let me feel your heart

Pulsing everywhere

Let shimmering stars enlighten me

Let Feeling take me there


Mother let me drink with you

From crystal-sparkling streams

Let effervescence fill me

Let Wisdom guide my dreams


Mother let me eat with you

From ever-giving fields

Let sweetness now delight me

Let Plenty be my yield


Mother let me hold your hand

Into the vast unknown

Let soaring birds inspire me

Let Trust be ever shown


Mother let me know you

Each moment of my day

Let Life be celebration

Let Love become my way


It Is So and So It Is

“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

Rooted on Holy Ground


It Is So and So It Is

“The garden of love is green without limit, and yields many fruits beyond sorrow or joy.  Love is beyond either condition: without spring, without autumn, it is always fresh.”   Rumi


The Garden of Love is green

It’s limitless and Pure

It’s blossoms without season

It’s fruit that does endure


I’m walking in this Garden

A colorful display

The fragrances intoxicate

As Love blooms every day 


Arriving in the Garden

I reCognize what’s Real

This Love that blooms so freely

Is Love that I can feel


And sitting in the Garden

Peace washes over me

A calm, serene experience

ReMinding me to Be


Now pausing in the Garden

The Blessings raining down 

The freshness of this Love

Is worn like Heaven’s Crown


All seasons in the garden

Are sharing Love with me

The changing patterns amplify

Love’s depths for all to see


And visiting the garden

Brings Beauty and Delight

Beyond life’s joys and sorrows

It’s Love that shines it’s Light


It Is So and So It Is
