Begin

Search the Depths of your Heart for Love
Seeking in your Spirit for Life;
Challenge the Everyday Clutter and Chaos
That Tries to O’rewhelm you with Strife.

Ask for the Presence of Kindness
To Shine in your Smile Each Day;
Yearn for Compassion to Linger
When indifference tries to steal you away.

Desire Peace to Abide in your breast,
Long for Patience to Remain,
Walk in Joy when the sun shines,
And Smile when Life turns to Rain.

In this way you will Shimmer
And Glow with the Light from Within,
Drawing others to that Sweet Charity;
Come, Bend your Knee, and Begin.

(1) “I laugh when I hear that the fish in the water is thirsty.

You don’t grasp the fact that what is most alive of all is inside your own house;
and you walk from one holy city to the next with a confused look!

Kabir will tell you the truth: go wherever you like, to Calcutta or Tibet;
if you can’t find where your soul is hidden,
for you the world will never be real!”

(2) “The Lord is in me, the Lord is in you, as life is in every seed, put false pride away and seek the Lord within..”

(3) “The Kazi is searching the words of the Koran, and instructing others:
but if his heart be not steeped in that love, what does it avail, though he be a teacher of men?”

Kabir Das (1440–1518) an Indian mystic, philosopher and poet…

Rocks and Rivers

God is the Rock of the ages
The Beginning, the Middle and End
He is the book and the pages
The River that ripples and bends

Life is a series of trials
To see if we’re flowing or not
With every step, leap and mile
We either go forward or stop

God is the Presence within us
Not out there, so high we can’t see
God is the Source that will win us
The Life of a blossoming seed

If rivers don’t flow they go stagnant
If seeds don’t keep growing they rot
If we do not change we are ragged
And block all the Life that is ours

God is the Rock of the ages
Foundation of all that will last
The Peace that is ours and the sages’
Where Life happens now;
Not in future or past!

Welcome, Springtime!

Welcome, Springtime!
youthful splendor;
Sweet renewal
Flowing free.

Welcome, Springtime!
Stirring Lifeforce,
Singing, dancing
In and through me.

Welcome, Springtime!
Equal daytime
Sharing space with
Equal night.

Welcome, Springtime!
Balance weighing;
Harmonizing
Dark and Light.

Welcome, Springtime!
Bringing forward
Light that kindles
Deep within.

Welcome, Springtime!
Now in Christ we
Lift our hearts in
Resurrection!
–Amen!

The personal ego can only offer someone
a poor semblance of love, because its nature
is basically selfish. – That is why there have
always been many discords & issues in human
relationships & that kind of love can even
turn into hatred overnight. In contrast,

True Love is a Gift of the Holy Spirit of Truth &
is the kindling of the all consuming flame
Of “I AM,” inside of the receptive hearts of
believers and seekers. – It is God in us Knowing
& Loving His Own Self – Expression (Son) in
others hearts unconditionally

3 Lucky Limericks

Whether this particular form of poetry is Irish or not, here are 3 that bring the often uncouth, naughty Limerick to another level. And why not? The rhythm and rhyme are irresistible, so we may as well use them for good!

There was a young girl named Mercedes
Who lived on the river Euphrates.
When she started to think
She created a stink,
And the clay of her mind became Hades!

There was once a young lady so “nice”
That she took everybody’s advice
Till the effort to please
Brought her soul to its knees
And she chose all its flavor and spice!

You are where you are and that’s that.
And wherever you go that’s a fact.
You are here by design
In this place at this time
So don’t wait! Just be great where you’re at!

Drama Song

A little humor and Celtic flavor for St. Patrick’s Day. 🙂 Those who are already spiritually oriented will be nodding their heads. Others will be going, “Huh?” And having the seed planted.

Drama Song – Lyrics

Instrument: Walnut Concert Flea Ukulele

Refrain:
[and] I’m sorry I’ve taken the drama out of love.
If you want it back, go ask somebody else.

1. Not like lightning, but a gradual change,
I realized I’d gotten past games people play.
No more, “Well, if you loved me, you’d please me, my dear.”
I’m ready for Love unconditioned and clear.
Refrain:

2. If I do or I don’t, it won’t change what is.
It’s not indigestion or emotional fizz.
There’s no infatuation or flirting or nerves.
I’m coming to Love without stress and reserves.
Refrain:

3. So if you’ve got it bad, then keep movin’ on.
There’s someone else out there for you to cling on.
As for me, myself, it’s the Spirit of Truth
That quickens the Love I dismissed in my youth.
Refrain: (Twice)

And so it is!

I think a thought,
And so it is!
I may not see it now.
But at some time
The God of Mind
Will bring it back around.

So with each thought,
Which is a prayer,
I let God reign in me:
Thought manifests
To take or bless;
Which do I choose to see?

I think a thought
And may it be
From Higher Consciousness!
And when it’s mine
To have in time,
The good will manifest!
–And so it is!

Blessings and Giggles

The giggles don’t really go anywhere, because their energy is always there. But we choose, each moment, how we perceive and express that energy. As a smile or as a frown? As laughter or bitterness? We don’t like to admit our responsibility in this, but in truth it is ours. When we take it and use it to serve God, the choice is an honor.

Thank you, Morgan, for this reminder!

Blessings and Giggles

Blessings and Giggles?

Yes, why not? After all, God invented Laughter, so why not share our giggles and smiles with the world? It could be easy, I suppose, to sit long faced, moping, sullen, brooding, cantankerous, but what purpose does it serve? One only ends up vexing everyone , including oneself!

As Children we smile and giggle throughout the day. We laugh, we play, we make up rhymes ( and some of us never stop doing that!), we create words, (or that!) we reach out to others with open hearts and smiling spirits. So what happens to change that and when? Metaphysics may not be my PhD, it may not be my cup of tea (yep, there I go rhyming again), but where do the giggles go? What brings reality crashing down upon us to make laughter stale and smiles sour?

I cannot tell you, but for every frown, there…

Woman

I wrote this song in early 2011, while exploring Goddess-centered spirituality. I share it here in honor of International Women’s Day – but more than this, honoring all people and our Great Creator! It’s time we see our gender as a blessing and not a difference, curse, crutch, or hindrance! This applies to our personal gender and everyone else’s. May we truly know, and thus experience, that we are indeed all One, regardless of physical form!

Woman – Lyrics

Instrument: soprano Flea ukulele

Note: This was recorded outside, so I apologize for the background noise. And this is not my usual ukulele tuning – this is reentrant/high G, and I usually play linear/low G. 🙂

1. Woman so soft
Woman so sweet
Woman so gentle
Woman so strong
Woman of love
Woman of peace
Woman complete
Sing your beautiful song!

2. Woman of earth
Woman of air
Woman of water
Woman of fire
Woman of birth
Woman of life
Woman of laughter
Now express your desire!

3. Woman in body
Woman in mind
Woman in spirit
Open your eyes!
Know who you are
Claim who you’ve been
For you will be
All that you can let in!

Repeat 1.

Sing your beautiful song! (3x total)
