To Be Fit

To center myself through the day,
I let all the world fall away…
My whole consciousness
curls into itself,
disarming the furious fray.

Amazing well-being I find,
curls out of the Infinite Mind.
With sweetest success,
abundantly blessed,
from chaos to vision so kind!

Blessings Be upon You

God bless us!

This does not sound like a Christmas song. Even people surrounded by family and others can feel most isolated at this time of year. And if my prayer list is any indication, people want to feel some glimmer of hope and blessings, now more than ever! That’s why this isn’t a Christmas song, and why most of my holiday songs are more generic–because it’s not only on a holiday that we long to experience something higher than our human thoughts and circumstances! This longing is universal, and Higher Consciousness is, too! And so, may blessings be upon you, now and always!

Numbers 6:24-26 (NKJV)

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”

Blessings Be upon You – Lyrics

1. When times are dark and dreary
And you feel worn and weary,
I ask that blessings be upon you.

2. When every wish you’ve wanted
Is like a haunting hunter,
I ask that blessings be upon you.
Refrain:

3. When careless words are working
To keep you hard and hurting,
I ask that blessings be upon you.
Refrain: (Twice)

May the Lord give you peace!

Refrain:
The Lord bless you and keep you

And give you peace.
The Lord give you peace!

Your Advent Unfolds

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

1. When the load of error is too much to bear
And the burden of proof disheartens your truth,
A stillness inside awaits to confide:
Your advent unfolds! Christ born in your soul!
Refrain:

2. When the load of strain is hard to contain
And the burden of stress is heavy at best,
A stillness within can help you begin:
Your advent unfolds! Christ born in your soul!
Refrain:

3. When the load of sight is clouding your Light
And the burden of sound is chaos all ’round,
A stillness in you keeps breaking through:
Your advent unfolds! Christ born in your soul!
Refrain:

Refrain:
So, look inside for peace of mind.
Nothing can save but the Spirit who made you.
Worry and woe, let ’em go,
And lift your eyes to find
The Christ Light in your mind!

Temple

I’ve been to a temple, a grand cathedral, and not noticed its splendor. Yes, so unaware was I that in the face of beauty, I saw nothing unusual. I’ve been there so often that I pass it by, heedless of what really happens within its walls. But today, or so it seems, the temple veil is lifted! And I see the beauty, the splendor, the blessing of this temple and cathedral that is mine.

bliss of nature shines
Spirit taking form in me
as body temple

Mountain of the Lord

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

Isaiah 2:1-3,5 (NKJV)

Now it shall come to pass in the latter days
That the mountain of the Lord’s house
Shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow to it.
Many people shall come and say,
“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
O house of Jacob, come and let us walk
In the light of the Lord.

The Mountain of the Lord

Mystically understood, the Lord’s mountain is a meditative state, a place of Higher Consciousness. It rises above the hillsides, the height, of everyday awareness to something greater. And it is for everyone, for all nations, all people, not just a chosen few. The mountain of the Lord is always present, and we can climb it, learn his ways, and walk in his light in our daily lives.

Mountain of the Lord – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

Refrain:
*”Come!
Let us go up (3x)
Up to the mountain of the Lord!
Repeat from *.

1. His house is greatest,
His mountain highest,
And every nation shall flow to it, saying,
Refrain:

2. There on his mountain,
His ways he teaches,
And every nation shall flow to it, saying,
Refrain:

3. His mountain rises
Above the hillsides,
And every nation shall flow to it, saying,
Refrain: (Twice)

Up to the mountain of the Lord!
“Come!
Let us go up (3x)

In the Garden

He asked me,
“Will you join me
in the garden?”
In turning my head,
I turned away.

He asked me,
“Will you help me
in the garden?”
And my inaction
was action enough.

He asked me,
“Are you peaceful
in the garden?”
And the light of truth
lit up my mind.

He asked me,
“Are you happy
in the garden?”
And without question,
I knew I wouldn’t be without.

I asked him,
“May I join you
in the garden?”
The scene changed
When I saw the change in me.

I asked him,
“May I help you
in the garden?”
As the seasons pass,
may I pass on the harvest!

I ask you,
“Will you join me
in the garden?”
For the whole of Life
is whole in you!
