Only Me

Image
I’m not only me,
I’m we, we are one
breathing alongside me without death,
sometimes noticing one another,
and sometimes paying no heed,
yet sensing the silence within the affinity,
loving loudly long after the grief,
seeking peace as we breathe,
waiting on laughter to summon mercy.

Forgiving...

Why is forgiving so hard for humans? God forgives us everyday.
We need to be more like God, I have been forgiven.
I have been told I forgive people too easy, but I believe that's what God wants from me.
Forgive.

We all have made mistakes and will continue to do so.
I believe God wants us to forgive each other.
The world would be much more peaceful if we did.

Advice From...

Advice from Creation: Live, Love and Laugh, and, while you're at it, cleanse your foul poisons so that the tree and the flower might continue to advise you along your way...

Relinquish the Suffering

Image
Throw open your church doors, synagogues, mosques, town halls, meeting places, come into the light of day. Bring your hearts pounding with their tremendous Love and dance your Forgiveness out into the fields to play.

Carry your Laughter within the vessel of Peace and glorify what is before you and beneath your feet upon the rhythm tapping out its eternal beat, celebrate your brotherhood and sisterhood with Home,

relinquish the suffering brought about by any and all beliefs. Let go the chaos loosed by your hold within the supple flesh. The spirit of Love cannot be held down, it must breathe. Time's a void, NOW is the moment Creation conceives.

Forget your watch, ignore the numbers and end the clock, no more the slide of the unremitting tick tock, the thrumming of deadlines, the slither of limitations, the drumming of war made silent by all nations. Peace and Love emerging with the pace of the (H)eartH’s splendor. Now begin. Now.

Peace and Love

Open Your Heart

Open your heart and have love and compassion, for when you look into their eyes, you see me, you, and all of us.

Filling someone's heart with love can change them forever. How wonderful that would be.

LOVE...

Bit of Comedy

Teacher: Young lady, go to the back of the line!

Young lady: You mean to the rear?

Teacher: Don't get cheeky with me, little missy!

Young lady: I was just revealing the obvious.

Teacher: Wipe that smirk off your face!

Young Lady: Wipe! Ha! You're good at this game!

Teacher: Oh shut your pie hole!

Young Lady: You sound like my dad.

Teacher: Oh dear. I am so sorry.

Young Lady: It's cool, I've learned to just roll with it.

Teacher: Oh my.

Young Lady: I'm sorry, teacher, I had no idea that you felt like crap today.

Teacher: Okay. I'm telling your-

Young Lady: Put a lid on it, stool pigeon!

Teacher: Class dismissed!

Things We Give

Image
Yes.
The things we give should also be the things we keep,
held dearly inside of ourselves,
otherwise, we're not actually sharing them,
we're giving them away as if they've no use to the next...

Peace

(H)eartH Need, Want

Image
The (H)eartH doesn't "want" or "need" saving,
it simply requires our humble cherishment
that it might keep its need for us alive.

Those Who

Perhaps those who were not dancing
were also unseen by those that were.

If we've cause to dance,

Eternity Now

Image
It is logical to imagine that, if eternity exists,
we are already within it, now and now and now...

So it follows that "now" is the most important moment
to anyone and to the whole breathing within it.

Therefore, it is logical to imagine that where we are now
is more important than where we imagine we might go in the offing.

Now, when seen through the lens of an unfathomable timeframe, eternity, is certainly more beneficial than yesterday and tomorrow since one is gone and the other may never arrive. Let us then live as if tomorrow shall indeed arrive, live as if it already has... now and now and now...

Elusive Truth

The truth is elusive, even in the light of day.
The lie seems to swim freely among us,
in between the excuses for war
and the justification for abusing (H)eartH,
between turning a blind eye to rape
and turning the blight of oppression into profit.

Any questions?

(What are we going to do to stop it?
Should we stand up and demand freedom?
Will we finally see that we’ve been had?
Who’ll heal our blindness to over consumption?)

The (H)eartH, if we don’t.

Boom boom…

My Lovely angel Love

My Lovely angel Love is a rather evident angel.
She is most loving, forgiving and honest,
she is beautiful inside and out, often silent,
with a truly caring voice when she speaks.

Laughter escapes her lips, an ode to Creation.
Within her exists her children's spirits carried with great care
and she holds them near, even when they're not there.

She is Love and Forgiveness elegantly personified
against my great need for both as Peace and Laughter.
I'm grateful to witness her wings rise up,
to sense her inner-heavenly-child ,
and, yes, I realize my fortune, ever after...

Mind Away

Giving the mind away...

None of us are Homeless... there is no such thing.
But... there are those without.
Why?

Equal Home

Image
The Homeless...

I am their equal, through and through.

What saddens me most is the collective’s inhumanity.

I weep at our longstanding indifference,
at our imagining that the homeless truly need anything
other than shelter and food.

I will tell the homeless nothing that they have not already garnered
from their own experience,
but that I care deeply for them.

I will strive to feed them
and do my best to help them in any way,
if they so desire.

I will not tell them anything more than I Love them
and that I see them.

They are hungry,
so I will do my best to fill their stomachs with food.

I will nourish their hearts by expressing Love for them as a brother,
as an equal.

Peace and Love

No Conclusions

Image
No conclusions can be drawn by humankind,
It is not theirs to establish such a thing.

Humankind has no right to place a period on Creation's story,
Creation does not stop, therefore We do not end.

We need be self-taught by our own portion of the Holy Spirit
And not closed to the idea of God being each of us,
Because God is and We are.

Peace and Love

Reveal Equals

Image
We need reveal our own Love as antidote to apathy,
not infect others who already have the same Love as We,
to imagine them another way is to imagine that We are somehow different.

We are equals...

Regardless of Reasons

All should be more compassionate to the homeless
regardless of the reasons they're homeless.

Homeless is homeless, hungry is hungry, love is love.

Because...

Image
Because...
We learned less than we imagined we knew of ourselves.
We showed love with our pocketbooks instead of our hearts.
We solved disputes with bombs and guns instead of our brains.
We thought politically instead of lovingly.
We were prideful instead of humble.
We were patriotic instead of a collective.
We idly prayed instead of prayerfully acted.
We consumed by want instead of by need.
We were full of hope, but empty of Love's fullness.
We forgot who, what and where we were...

Faith Child

Image
Do not lose faith in God, this child is God!

Do not lose faith in God, have faith in humankind!

Do not lose faith in Creation, begin to create another view!

Do not lose faith in Creation, this child is Creation!

Prayer must become an action word! Prayer is an action word!

Have faith in the Self, don't lose faith in the God-child!

Let us collectively change this reality by our urgent and loving actions!

Boom boom...

Two Red Leaves

Along my way I find two red leaves,
brown edges, shades of fall's change.
Softer than expected, veins of truth, Life's turn,
Love's reassurance that all is as it should be.

Careful warns the dove, nature is eternal,
humankind's tenure is falling like the leaf,
a tumbledown reckoning with nature's truth.
Careful, man. Careful, woman. Careful child. Wind.

The tadpole wiggles and swims about the rocks,
soon the little fellow will change, like the fall,
or get eaten by something bigger.
Creation has no foe, no predator to take its place.

The moon is now but distant in my memory's trace,
a face of Love and Forgiveness brightly lit, intended.
Careful, says the cricket. Caution, pleads the Blue Jay.
Cherish Home, demands Creation alone. Red leaves.

Remember, remember, remember, crows the raven...

Murmuring Voices

The full moon meanders over my view
as the night air breathes its murmuring voices
chirping a song for the evolution of the spirit,
a light on Love's way across the sky of my fated slip.

I listen that I might sense my place,
these words as testament to Love's waltz with Peace.
Forgiveness is the tempo found in Creation's choreography.
Laugh with me, I ask them, dance that I might feel?

My bare feet move in an awkward formation,
hands opened up, an invitation to a poor man's dance,
humbled by tired knees, a thankful heart, a marionette of truth
beneath the sky of stars whose moon gazes upon by chance.

O! The dance floor is most inviting with its undetected motion,
like the waves of a distant music reaching out to my animal's breath.
Sleep beckons my waking life in the dream within the dream,
a tribute to a living, to Life's honest return from death.

Moonlight awash over the field of dark green musings,
nature's orchestra playing an ode in the night's th…

Hiding the Fullness

Image
"...exempt no one from your love, or you will be hiding a dark place in your mind where the Holy Spirit is not welcome. And thus you will exempt yourself from His healing power, for by not offering total love you will not be healed completely."

Then is it not true that God is essentially hiding the fullness of Love?

It makes little sense to say that God will not heal the dark place one has hidden within them because they have chosen to hide it or have failed to express it. As a matter of fact it sounds like a limitation on God. I don’t imagine that the fullness of Love/God has any exclusionary rules for its expression.

Begin again…

Hold of You

Image
"When you care for someone more than they deserve, you get hurt more than you deserve."

Perhaps, yet you also have the potential to learn more than expected.

When pain, sorrow, carves deep within the bowl that is your spirit, it makes more room for the return of Love's fullness...

Khalil Gibran said it best when he wrote- "The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain."

It makes sense. Please, don't stop caring for those that have hurt you, or even for those that might continue to do so, it may well be a tragic mistake that offers no solution to your pain, it may not fill you with what you might expect. All "deserve" to be cared for, bar none.

And to those that continue to hurt another, you must release what has a hold of you, it is not your victim that has you or that can release you. It is the thing that is in you that you need conquer in order to be who you were born to be. Conquer what has a hold on you so that…

The Spark

The spark is in all, bar none...

Fear not, when they see or sense yours, theirs intensifies, and even if it is not evident to either, it has brightened nonetheless. Enough of these encounters and the sparks eventually light up from the inside out. Keep remembering and soon it will be known...

All have been wounded and all are capable of seeing it brightly, it's in the remembrance of who, what and where we are.

Love and Peace will catch on, just give them time to touch us all (nearly 7 billion) and Forgiveness and Laughter will enter on Creation's wings.

(Human governance will bow to the truth soon enough...)
Breathe. Love. Forgive. Love. Be Peace. Love. Laugh. Love. Live. Love...

Echo and Spirit

The echo of spirit is, I believe, something we should listen to, it is not the same thing as an intellectual echo...

The echoes found in the spiritual lesson is not a chamber, it's more a reverberation of reflection, it's the self and spirit having a silent "conversation" within us, so to speak.

T speaks to us inwardly, yet does not come simply come from our "thinking", but from an unknown place, a voice echoing deep from within the forest, we follow its plea until we get near enough to it to begin to make out what it is saying and what it is. Often I fail to locate it, or I get tired of the search, or, and this is rare and more of an intrigue than a hinderance, but I sometimes find that I am wary of the answer that I am sensing within it. These particularly mysterious echoes are the ones that I find myself gravitating toward rather naturally and with a bit too much zeal.

It is the spiritual echo that I seek regularly, often finding the answer to be a dr…

Become It

Image
I don't think you'll just see it, you'll become it.

Peace is what I am. Within was/is where Peace originated for Me, I removed the barriers within Me and Peace began to dance in and outside of Me as it was, I believe, intended.

Believing I'm Peace (and Love) was when I began to see Me... the outward manifestation was/is then allowed to begin.

Love For You

I say show them what it means to love for you, not themselves, they'll see your delight and find their own way of expressing the loving purpose. It's instinctual... and lovingly varied.

The Owl

Image
The owl began its low note and captured my attention with its claim to me, beseeching that I heed the (H)eartH’s cry that she might then unveil her full and heavenly Love.

Oh! Let me seek her voice always so as to breathe in Me evermore!

Cry, O river! Cry that we and thee might breathe together without the ode of suffocation, but instead, liberate this eternal Life!

O cry, soil, rock and tree! Cry for Love’s majesty!

Cry, over the eartH, God’s Creation!

Cry! Each and every nation, cry out loud! Bring the roof of your worship down to join the floor! No more this madness let slip into the living’s midnight! Let her go! Take your paws off of her throat and kindly lift her wings that she might float!

Nature's Talk

Image
The coolness of the stream,
the speech of the water,
the tongue's of the rocks,
the truth of nature's talk.

Hello, it seems to say.
Won't you cherish Me in your plans?
Come along now, child,
it's time We had our dance...

I obey and sit upon the mighty throne,
the truth of who I am,
the gravity of my place,
the waltz with nature's grace,
a ballet set to sight and sound,
a play of grand proportions upon the staging ground,
an epic tale of time without the need for clocks,
of Love's delight and Peace's humble walk,
Forgiveness in the water, Laughter in the air,
talking with a truth holding Life with great care.

The coolness of the stream,
the speech of the water,
the tongue's of the rocks,
the truth of nature's talk.

Hello...

Fire Extinguisher

Image
(You don't believe in Hell?)

No.

(But it is in the word of God?)

Hell is in the word?

(Yes.)

Then might I suggest you remove the corrupting influence of man from all aspects of your thinking.

(What? How dare you tell me that the word of God is corrupted?)

That is not what I said. Hell is not of God. It is repugnant to Love, Forgiveness, Peace and Laughter, to Life. Is it not? Isn't it the absence of God?

(Yes!)

Then hell does not exist at all.

(How do you-)

If God is absent of Hell then it must be the fearful creation of man.

(No! God gave us a choice! Freewill, buddy! You can choose to believe or not!)

Then I choose to not believe in hell, my friend. My question is why do you believe in it if God is not a part of it in the least?

(Silence...)

Rooted

Image
We are as rooted as the tree.
Of that we certainly agreed.
She spoke confidently, I heard,
like the water finds its groove,
I sensed her belief.
Like the root senses water,
the river its current,
the wolf its night,
the mother her daughter.

We are rooted as the tree.
Home’s where we begin,
Love’s where we breathe,
Peace, our sacred endeavor,
Forgiveness, born in us at birth,
Laughter’s the body’s elixir.
Rejoice, our Christ is near,
God’s rooted within You and Me,
in We, not unlike the tree…

End to War

Image
(Peace Pact at Roots Action)
"We support local, state, national, and international legislation that would make August 27th a holiday in honor of the Kellogg-Briand Pact, also known as the Peace Pact, that was signed on this date in 1928. The International Pact which renounced war as an instrument of national policy and committed nations to settling disputes exclusively by peaceful means was passed into U.S. law in 1929 with only one Senator in opposition. The co-authors were Republican Secretary of State Frank Kellogg from Minnesota and French foreign minister Aristide Briand. Kellogg won the Nobel Peace Prize, and the Pact is still U.S. and International Law."


No.
Do not make it a holiday, 
make it a lifetime of remembrance,  a reminder forevermore that war holds no sway  over humankind's allegiance with Peace...

Talk of Money

All this talk of money, as if it makes the world go ‘round?
The irony is that money is the root of our malevolence abound.
The contradiction- Money’s the cause of our sightless shame,
the source of our woes, the foundation of the fire’s flame.

We need remember the exactness of why we’re here at all,
consider the human function and commit ourselves to the call.
Instead of chitchatting so much of foul money’s need,
let’s sincerely converse of humankind’s original seed.

Please consider what you need before considering what you want,
the difference could not be clearer, the distinction more important,
want comes with gleaming teeth honed by money’s greed,
need comes with the breath fulfilled by nature’s seed.

Think.

All This Talk

What’s all this talk of God AND our Wants?
What’s all this talk of Creation AND our Haunts?

What’s all this talk of War AND the Prince of Peace?
What’s all this talk of Hell AND Heaven’s streets?

What’s all this talk of Love AND Fear’s gnashing teeth?
What’s all this talk of Forgiveness AND foul Revenge?

What’s all this talk of Suffering AND Laughter’s lenience?
What’s all this talk of Money AND our Freedom’s reach?

What’s all this talk of Truth AND the natter of Deceit?
What’s all this talk of Prayer of the Self AND not a word for All?

Empty Buildings

Let us fill the empty buildings with humans in need of shelter,
let us bring them food, water, clothing, the essentials to live in dignity,
let us show them and their children that humanity is alive and well,
let us end our foul want, subdue our greed and act upon our emptiness.

Let's begin to think! For the love of God, let us think!
Let's think FOR ourselves and OF others.
Let's love and assure that our hearts are not empty
and theirs are not abandoned...

Eleven

Eleven approached like a stampede,
left and right running over the second hand of time
at a breakneck speed.

I wept as hands moved their shadow over one and one,
eleven o'clock, knock knock,
silence outside. A shroud-
Marching to like happy sheep,
entering in like howling wolves.

I stand, they notice,
I breathe.
I love.
I breathe.
I leave.

(This story always comes in reverse order.)

The echo pretends it doesn't exist,
pale eyes ahead of my reach.
I look around me.

(Tick tock…)

I enter the worship center's chattering hall,
all at once an involuntary noise
and the dance begins.
Well over 300.
Idle clamber.
Life's clattering.
Teeth chattering.
I ask the silence,
the prayer inside,
in or out, you decide.
Booths lined walls of the noisy hall-
coffee, snacks, books for sale and CDs.
Worship yet to begin.

So, so, so, so, so many voices at once,
sound hadn't a chance, thump thump...

Now in the fellowship church,
voices more muted, distant,
anticipating the entran…

To Be One

If we are to be one,
we must believe in ourselves
and in one another.
When we believe in each other,
I in you and you in me,
we reach the balance of us,
one.
See?

Blood-red Sun

Image
Blood red sun, where are you traveling with your thinning veil?
The dream, opens its eyes to the new day, the latest breath,
awakens a sweet column of sky, a chart of the coming season.
Inventive veins, mysterious layers fade, unfold the light
now speak a story of an emergent Love to come.

(Tick tock…)

Orange sun, where are you traveling without the creature’s will?
The morning’s inauguration trickles in, nature’s wake-up call,
and the birdsong maintains its warble of an ordained exactness-
Speak a language that thinking beasts can understand!

(Tick tock…)

Yellow sun, where are you traveling with your naked ascent?
What does your rise mean to my Love, to her star-spangled spirit?
O, comfort her with our union’s truth, open her eyes to Me, to We,
and recognize the truth unfolding between us, through my fingers.

(Tick tock…)
