Peace & Blessings

“He who is happy within, who rejoiceth within, who is illuminated within, that Yogi, becoming the eternal, goeth to the Peace of the eternal.” The Bhagavad-Gita

Happiness, seated within us right Now

It needs no condition, no well-defined how

It simply resides there, awaiting our call

Happiness stands ready to give of the All

Rejoice and give voice to the Joy that’s within 

It bursts at your seams, it wants to begin 

It quivers, it tickles, it rocks and it shakes

Joy’s Eternal song, is all that it takes

Light that does shine, like the noonday sun

It only gets brighter, once you’ve begun

It dispels the darkness, exposes the fear

Illumined with vision from All, fully clear

Within there is Happiness, Joy and Light

Within there is Love that burns ever-bright

Revealing a Peace, that words cannot tell

Forever, unending, an Eternal well

Becoming the Eternal, a journey to Peace

Going within, allowing release

Transcendent qualities setting you free

Breathe now, listen, then simply Be

It Is so and So It Is

So Be It

“Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.”  Philippians 2:2
The stream of Love is flowing
And Harmony is known
From mountaintops to ocean
The Field of Love is grown
Love’s essence is the substance
Of Life, it is the song
It strikes the note of Unity
In Love we do belong
As Love becomes our everything
And Joy fills every space
The energy of Goodness
And Love is our embrace
Love’s blessings fall like raindrops
As Peace washes us clean
Transcendent Beauty fills our world
One Love that is serene
With Love, become like-minded
And be of One accord
The One Mind is the Mind of Love
One Love, we are restored
It Is So and So It Is
So BE it

“So likewise thou in all thy speech

Swerve never from the path of Truth”

Buddhism in Translation

The Path of Truth invites me

To step upon in Now

To walk it daily, Know it

To let it show me how

To tune my mind to Goodness

To fill my heart with Love

To walk it daily, Know it

To live life from above

Above the fears and worries

Above the pettiness

To walk it daily, Know it

To discard emptiness

The Path of Truth invites me

To step upon in Now

To walk it daily, Know it

To let it show me how

To sing and dance with Freedom

To laugh at Life out loud

To walk it daily, Know it

To Feel that I’m allowed

Allowed to Be Magnificent

Allowed to have it all

To walk it daily, Know it

As Blessings ever fall

The Path of Truth invites me

To step upon in Now

To walk it daily, Know it

To this I take a vow

To Breathe into my center

To let Peace speak my word

To share Love freely, Know it

Let only Truth be heard

It Is So and So It Is

So BE It

” 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

“He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season, his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. “ Psalm 1:3

The acorn falls on fertile ground

It sprouts and seeks the sun

Tiny roots are taking hold

New life has just begun

The soil rich and giving

The water full of life

Rooted now and growing

It overcomes all strife

The tiny seedling stretches

As seasons come and go

It broke its shell to now become

The mighty oak we know

All greatness is encoded

Within the very core

Break free, take root and flourish

Breathe now, and live for more

Magnificence, your birthright

Brilliance shining through

Expand your Goodness daily

To your own Self be true

It Is So and So It Is

So BE It

“Wear gratitude like a cloak, and it will feed every corner of your life.” Rumi

Gratitude is draped upon

My shoulders like a cloak

It feeds each corner of my life

Once sleeping, I awoke

Gratitude is walking

Down every path and way

It holds my hand inviting

The Miracles to stay

Gratitude is washing

My consciousness and mind

It clears the view, reflecting

The Goodness that I find

Gratitude is filling

My cup that overflows

The Stream of Circulation now

Moves Freely as it grows

Gratitude is living

Within my heart and soul

Creating here a heaven

A treasure house untold

Gratitude is draped upon

My shoulders like a cloak

It feeds each corner of my life

Once sleeping, I awoke

It Is So & So It Is

” All is the effect of all, one universal Essence.”  Brihad Aranyaka Upanishad

The ocean spreads before me

A wide expansive sea

Dive in, I tell myself again

Go deep and become Free

And in these depths of Wonder

With Silence beckoning

The whispers of Eternity

Invite my listening

One Universal Essence

Is at the heart of All

Allow these Peaceful waters

To wash away the walls

The walls of separation

Locked in, without a door

The walls that fear built hopelessly

Illusions evermore

The walls built to protect you

From an enemy unknown

The walls, now prison to your Soul

Fall down, as water washes stone

Emerging from the ocean

The Pearl of Wisdom held

Within my heart, Love’s opening

Inspired and compelled

One Universal Essence

The All, ever at hand

Its Presence never absent

This is the Promised Land

It Is So and So It Is
