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

A thousand ways to home again

A multitude expanding

Goodness, shines its light on All

The gaze of understanding

 

My way, your way, each unique

For no thing is the same

Compassion enters quietly

As Spirit plays the game

 

For we are individual

Unique gifts in our hearts

Undivided from the whole

We choose and play our parts

 

A thousand times a thousand

The pathways we have found

Love, patiently awaits us

We kneel and kiss the ground

 

It Is So and So It Is

” …for thou art with me…” Psalm 23:4

 

I lie beneath the canopy

Like diamonds cast above

I feel the hand of God and know

A deep abiding Love

 

I sit beside the mountain lake

Inviting my release

I see the face of God and know

Reflections of true Peace

 

I dive into the ocean

A bubble in the sea

I feel the arms of God and know

That Joy is holding me

 

I walk in life’s own garden

The blossoms and the fruit 

I see the eyes of God and know

That Beauty’s taken root

 

I travel on the path of Life

No strangers do I meet

I see in each the smile of God

Its friends that I now greet

 

In every moment of every day

Resplendent energy

I recognize God’s handiwork 

Hello, Eternity

 

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

“Knock, And He’ll open the door
Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun
Fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens
Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.” 
Rumi
The door was open yesterday
The entryway was wide
I slipped right in, sat quietly
Found Love to sit beside
I vanished for a moment
I shined bright as the sun
The luminosity revealed
A Peace within the One
Now Passion took my hand
As Wisdom guided me
Into a life abundant
With possibility
Transformed I stepped out boldly
On wings I glided free
I recognized No thing
That used to tether me
My eyes now fully open
The veils have dropped away
And in this State of Oneness
I Joyfully will stay
The Beauty and the Wonder
The Grace that paints each scene
A simple knock upon the door
A welcome opening
It Is So and So It Is

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.” Mahatma Gandhi
I’m rising today with a happy heart
I’m breathing the fresh new air
I’m stepping outside of time and space
I’m finding that Peace is there
I’m thinking the thoughts of Good today
I’m planting the seeds with care
I’m tending my garden and watching it grow
I’m harvesting Love to share
I’m speaking today with kind intent
I’m listening and forming each word
I’m sprinkling laughter on everyone
I’m allowing my Joy to be heard
I’m building my actions on Truth today
I’m watching as passion takes hold
I’m giving myself permission to fly
I’m Beauty that shimmers like gold
I’m living my life in Harmony
I’m inside and then I’m out
I’m seeing the blossoms before the fruit
I’m Happiness that’s taken sprout
It Is So and So it Is

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
Henry David Thoreau
Do you see the Beauty of the butterfly’s wing?
Do you see when the morning dove lifts?
Do you notice the curl of petals that fall?
Do you see everything as God’s gifts?
Are your eyes open now to the Miracle of Life?
Are you seeing your world as it is?
Are you thinking the thoughts that connect you to Source?
Are you feeling Divine’s every kiss?
Do you find the Joy in the eyes of the child?
Do you laugh with the rising sun?
Do you glow with Love and sit with Peace?
Do you know that this life is for fun?
Are your eyes open now to magnificence?
Are you seeing that Heaven’s right Here?
Are you thinking the thoughts of Eternity?
Are you feeling and drawing it near?
Do you see the diamonds in the morning dew?
Do you notice the hummingbird’s flight?
Do you feel the Peace in the mountain lake?
Do you gaze out and see the True Light?
It’s not what you look at that shapes your world
Reflections of what is inside
Your deepest thoughts and feelings
Take form for your viewing outside
It Is So and So It Is

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”  Martin Luther King, Jr.

The starless midnight

Dissolving Now

As Daylight surely breaks

 

The dawn of Truth

Emerging Now

Gives Light, that overtakes

 

This gentle rise

O’retaking Now

Dissolves the dark and then

 

The flame of Love

Heartwarming Now

Gives Happiness again

 

The veil is lifting

Seeing Now

A view of life that’s more

 

The Light of Mind

Transforming Now

Gives all an open door

 

The daybreaks bright

For Peace is Now

The final word is Love

 

And Brotherhood 

Is Known right Now

The Truth we’re worthy of

 

It Is So and So It Is
