“Thus it is that the Tao produces all things, nourishes them, brings them to their full growth, nurses them, completes them, matures them, maintains them, and overspreads them.” The Tao Te Ching

 

The budding rose, the glistening dew

The butterfly on wing

The apple painted crimson

Of all these things we sing

 

The pink curl of the seashell

The cosmic sound it holds

The bursting forth at sunrise

These treasures are our gold

 

The newborn’s first breath taken

The child’s small hand in mine

The hug that brings us home again

These songs of Love through time

 

The air alive with ocean spray 

The moss upon the tree

The smell of falling rain

These gifts do set us Free

 

The verdant green of Springtime

The sprout that breaks the ground

The just-hatched nestlings, high above

These echo Cosmic sound

 

The rising mountain’s majesty

The quiet of it’s lakes

The new horizon that it shows

These given for our sakes

 

The Tao produces all things

It nourishes and maintains

Its ever-Present Wholeness

The Glory that sustains

 

It Is So and So It Is

The Tao cannot be heard; what can be heard is not It.     The Tao cannot be seen; what can be seen is not It.”    The Texts of Taoism

 

The Tao is the Spirit

Within everything

The sweet melody

The Life chords that sing

 

Echoed through time

Reflected through space

The Tao giving form

Declaring its place

 

The Tao is the Spirit

Both inside and out

Consciousness present

Without any doubt

 

Echoed through time

Reflected through space

The Tao giving form

Declaring its place

 

The Tao is the Spirit

The source and the root

Growing to new heights

Providing the fruit

 

Echoed through time

Reflected through space

The Tao giving form

Declaring its place

 

The Tao is the Spirit

The One Mind, the All

Aligning my thoughts 

I watch the fears fall

 

Echoed through time

Reflected through space

The Tao giving form

Declaring its place

 

The Tao is the Spirit

The magnetic pull

Limitless power

For Life that is full

 

It Is So and So It Is

“The net of Heaven is cast wide. Though the mesh is not fine, yet nothing ever slips through.”  The Tao Te Ching

 

The net of Heaven is cast wide

Through time and space it soars

Illuminating everything

Forever opening doors

 

And Love attends us constantly

As Peace is anchored deep

The Beauty of this life does shine

With Joy that is complete

 

The net of Heaven is cast wide

And nothing does slip through

With Grace it lifts, revealing

Eternity in you

 

And Love attends us constantly

As Peace is anchored deep

The Beauty of this life does shine

With Joy that is complete

 

The net of Heaven is cast wide

All Goodness woven in

Magnificent creation

Revealed as Light within

 

And Love attends us constantly

As Peace is anchored deep

The Beauty of this life does shine

With Joy that is complete

 

It Is So and So It Is

So Be It

“To be in accord with the eternal means to be enlightened.” The Tao Te Ching
 
A Blessing to my world today
That mission is my own
To let the perfect Knowing
Express and then be shown
 
A Blessing everywhere I go
My mandate from above
To speak with kind Compassion
Embrace with perfect Love
 
A Blessing that’s revealing
The Truth of who we are
To live this Truth, to Breathe it
Empowering near and far
 
A Blessing that establishes
A world of Joy and Peace
Distributed to each and all
Enabling sweet release
 
A Blessing to my world today
Enlightened now I see
When in accord, we think and act
Eternal unity
 
It Is So and So It Is
