Peace & Blessings

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” Mother Teresa

 

Kindness knocked upon my door

I gladly opened wide

She took my hand and entered

Then sat right by my side

 

Her words, like Springtime in the air

Brought freshness to my heart

The dross of life transforming

To portraits of great art

 

She wrapped me in the melody

Harmonious and true

I danced upon the notes and rose

To heights I never knew

 

The room now glowing golden

Was filled with pulsing light

Revealing that my essence

Was kind and clear and bright

 

With Kindness I was rising

To meet the Truth of me

The Love, the Peace, the Joy that are

My true Reality

 

A living, kind expression

Of Goodness everywhere

From heart to face through eyes and smiles

It’s Kindness that we share

 

Perhaps the greatest gift of all

She whispered in my ear

She’s not a fleeting visitor

For Kindness now lives here

 

It Is So and So It Is

“For all things proceed out of this same spirit, which is differently named love, justice, temperance, in its different applications, just as the ocean receives different names on the several shores which it washes.” Emerson

 

An ocean of Goodness is washing me now

A Love that is wholly complete

A Kind understanding for each and all

A Peace that will never retreat

 

A sea of Bliss is touching each shore

Compassionate waves rise and fall

A Joyful expression of Beauty within

A Truth that the many are All

 

All Knowing

All Seeing

All Loving

All Now

All Wisdom

All Action

All Ways

 

Revealing this ocean, we rise and we fall

The bubbles becoming the sea

We create each wave, we wash on each shore

Magnificent, Whole, we are Free

 

It Is So and So It Is

“…and prove me now herewith, saith The Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it…”  Malachi 3:10

 

And Blessings fall like petals

On springtime’s gentle breeze

Filling the air with fragrance

Filling the soul with Peace

 

And gathering them in baskets

They quickly overflow

Releasing all that’s given

Releasing all we know

 

And you cannot contain

The Blessings you receive

They’re meant to be passed on

They’re meant to be set free

 

And Grateful hearts receive them

And send them on their way

Their bounty simply multiplies

Their bounty fills each day

 

And now the Gratitude

Is raining down as well

The Blessing of the Blessing

The Blessing that we tell

 

It Is So and So It Is

“Only from the heart can you touch the sky.” Rumi

I rise at dawn

Like the sun on high

I dance and I sing

I touch the sky

 

I sit in the stillness

No time goes by

I breathe into Oneness

I touch the sky

 

I glide down the stream

No need to try

I trust it will take me

I touch the sky

 

I open my heart

Like the wind I fly

I carry you with me

I touch the sky

 

I gaze into life

With a single eye

On wings of love

I touch the sky

 

It Is So and So It Is

 

So Be It

“Let us always meet each other with a smile,  for the smile is the beginning of love.” Mother Teresa
To smile as the sun washes over the day
To smile as the dew glistens bright
To smile on the wings of the butterfly
To smile as the dove takes flight
For a smile is the nectar of our soul
Bringing sweetness into our day
And a smile strums the chords within our hearts
Creating the songs that we play
To smile as the flowers, the smile of God
To smile as the sparkling-eyed child
To smile as the babbling brook, to laugh
To smile watching Love run wild
For a smile is the nectar of our soul
Bringing sweetness into our day
And a smile strums the chords within our hearts
Creating the songs that we play
Let us always meet each other with a smile
Let us ever be joyous and light
Let us begin our song with Love and Peace
Let us so end our song each night
For a smile is the nectar of our soul
Bringing sweetness into our day
And a smile strums the chords within our hearts
Creating the songs that we play
Smile
It Is So and So It Is
So Be It

” 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

“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
