“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

” Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…” Psalm 23:67
Through time and space I’ve traveled
Setting foot on this terrain
I use them both as avenues
Yet unlimited I remain
Eternity, my birthplace
No beginning and no end
My choices surely infinite
When Mind I carefully tend
The treasure chest is open
And Truth outpours to me
Embodying what’s given
Will ever set me free
Transformed, I know the permanence
Of Heaven here on earth
Expressions of this Infinite Mind
Through each is given birth
And Blessings fall like petals
Reality revealed
When my mind joins the One Mind
No thing will be concealed
And surely Goodness follows me
With Mercy ever near
Abiding in the Presence
Eternity is here
It Is So and So It Is

“See truth as it is and be forever free of opposition and contention.”  Garland Sutra 11

There is Freedom from struggle 

And Freedom from strain 

Established in One Mind 

You quiet the brain 

There is Freedom from worry 

And Freedom from doubt 

Guided by One Mind 

Within, not without 

There is Freedom from weariness 

And Freedom from strife 

Empowered by One Mind 

The true Staff of Life 

For you are on Purpose 

Simply become clear 

The One Mind is your mind 

It’s Truth’s atmosphere 

The Blessings are raining 

The Wellspring is deep 

The the garden of One Mind  

Your harvest to reap 

See Truth as it is 

Be forever Free 

The One Mind directs 

Allow and just BE 

Your very own Soul 

Is seated within 

The One Mind as your mind 

It Always has been 

It Is So and So It Is 

One Mind 

In Truth

“When one follows unswervingly the path of virtue it is not to win advancement.”  Mencius VII.B.33

There is a Path of Virtue 

A wide and open road 

It beckons each to follow 

It leads to God’s abode 

And on this Path of Virtue 

Life’s fullness does unfold 

It guides each step and leads you 

It’s treasure-house, untold 

This Path of Virtue speaks to you 

Go in, and listen well 

This still, small voice is speaking 

Your thoughts will surely tell 

The Path of Virtue weaves for you 

A tapestry of gold 

The fabric of your thinking 

Yields the garment that you hold 

Follow the Path of Virtue 

Unswervingly walk True 

A mighty path of Power  

It’s Heaven, through and through 

The Path of Virtue’s way is straight 

When thoughts align with Good 

For Love is ever-Present 

And Peace is understood 

There is a Path of Virtue 

A wide and open road 

It beckons each to follow 

It leads to God’s abode

It Is So and So It Is

“Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”  I Corinthians 2:9

I woke this morning to the thoughts 

Of a vast and open Mind 

I sat in quiet stillness 

To reap all I did find 

I let the limitations go 

Like golden leaves of Fall 

They drifted peacefully away 

No longer did they call 

I linked my mind with Universe 

The feel of Freedom clear 

And greater Good than I have known 

Began to now appear 

I welcomed these new vistas 

I breathed a silent prayer 

As “Thank you” seated in my heart 

I knew that I was there 

I rose and entered into life 

My steps in tune with Love 

And found my world was teaming now 

With Blessings from above 

I welcomed these surprises 

I smiled and laughed out loud 

Expect the unexpected 

Magnificence allowed 

Eyes have not seen, nor have ears heard 

The Goodness that’s in store 

With thoughts attuned to higher Mind 

All Life’s an open door 

It Is So and So It Is

“We are here to awaken from the illusion of separateness”  Thich Nhat Hanh

Born of Infinity 

Never alone 

Destined for Greatness  

Love’s healing tone 

Destiny’s children 

Ever-aware 

Knowing the Goodness 

Life’s Love affair 

Wake from illusion 

Separate, we’re not 

Threads of a tapestry 

Love-woven Thought 

Ever-connected 

Breathing this in 

Peace at the center 

Love’s next of kin 

There’s no beginning 

And there’s no end 

Time, non-existant 

Through Love transcend 

Ever-unfolding 

Joy, tried and true 

Seeing with new eyes 

Loving anew  

Eternal BEings 

Waking again 

No thing is separate 

With Love begin 

It Is So and So It Is 

So BE it
