Prolonged

Therefore, since banter is best served in brief visits
and earnestness in more prolonged of a stay,
I’ll wait.

Gladly

I gladly bring my Lovely angel Love's spirit with me
everywhere I go, despite her not sitting beside me
at the coffee shop, the restaurant, the passenger seat.

She's there beside me, inside of me, smiling Love,
caressing her forgiveness throughout my being,
dancing inside, cleansing my sins with her seeing.

Her grace dwells in my stumbling gait
keeping me from falling off the edge,
holding me from the very least of me.

Her breath folds over my speech, over my tongue,
often too brutal for the whole of polite consumption
too rigid to glide, too swollen to fly, too empty to smile.

Nod if you understand, my dear. Yes. I thought you would.
…Yes. I’m remembering now, I’m feeling you within me.
Yes. I recognize the pathway, my Love, it is most good.

Peace

God (Love)

(If we're God and we've all of God in us, doesn't that mean that God is good and evil?)

We are born of Creation, God (Love). Some would say that we're only born of God (Love), that God (Love) is not fully within us, to which I say, if God (Love) is all and everything, then within us is born God's fullness, not simply a fraction, but all. Neither God, nor Love, do fractions.

(What?)

All of God (Love) is within our ungrateful shells, within everything and all. It is we the collective that must learn to tap into its fullness and not imagine that we're incapable of being God's (Love's) fullness.

(But then how can we choose to be or not to be good or evil, if, as you say, it's a circle.)

God (Love) is not "evil", humankind's choices are selfish, therefore corrupted. If we made only loving choices upon the circle we would see. We would be rewarded for cleansing the air, the water and the soil. We would be rewarded for living, laughing and…

L, L, D, S, L

Love, it'll do you and the world a much needed favor.

Laugh, you'll feel happier during and after.

Dance, no one's going to mind if you do.

Sing, you're a very unique individual you.

Live.

Simplicity

It's simple really. Love.

Let us Imagine

Let us imagine for a second that the (H)eartH is Heaven, shall we? What does it look like, what does it feel like, and what does it sound like?

Imagine it, Heaven beneath the feet, Heaven before our eyes, Heaven. Imagine what we would think of our use of Heaven, would we be ashamed?

(Silence...)

Now imagine that the (H)eartH is simply Home. Do we see the same thing, feel the same thing, and hear the same thing? What of our use of our Home? Are we still ashamed of humankind's use of Home, as ashamed as we were when we imagined it as Heaven, or is our shame identical?

(Silence...)

Now, imagine the (H)eartH as Heavenly Home.

What does it look, feel, and sound like? What of our use of our Heavenly Home? Are we still ashamed?

(Silence...)

Logically, one, or more, of the above scenarios is the truth.

Half Naked

We sit around gawking at half naked celebrities,
as if the skin covering their human bones
was any less sacred than our own.

We sit around laughing at those less fortunate,
so why wouldn't we mock the celebrity,
knock 'em down a notch or three?

We sit around bitching and moaning about others,
denigrating our sisters and our brothers,
building our masks for shame's cover.

We sit around and raise our fists to the talking box,
work forty hours and mow our lawns,
taxes paying for the dropping of bomb's,

keeping the roads paved so we can buy more gas
to keep our cars and trucks running fast
polluting the air we’re lucky to have.

We’re working ourselves into oblivion, for what?
To die from not having water to drink,
air to breathe from being too damned greedy to think?

Come on people, let’s think of the earth and one another
before the water gets too thick to drink,
before the air gets too toxic to breathe.

Love one another despite our harmless behaviors,
consider our mos…

Love Creation, Love All

I love Creation as I love my neighbors from sea to shining sea. I love all. The whole kit and kaboodle. I make no distinctions with the fullness of my Love and I make no demands of anyone, I am Peace and Laughter, Love and Forgiveness. I am.

We are all the children of Creation, God, whatever name you feel comfortable with. I believe I'm related to all of humankind, as a matter of fact, I believe that I'm related to the (H)eartH and to all of Creation. I cannot separate myself from that which surrounds me or from that which is beneath me or above me anymore than I can separate myself from the great unknown.

To put it simply, I am bound to Love, I am bound to Forgive, I am bound to Peace, and I am bound to Laughter and their sacred medicines. I believe that our human kinship is most important to us as a collective humanity.

Peace and Love

Soil and Rock

I do not claim to know the way. All I can do is Love all as I believe I'm bound to do.

I cannot parse the stranger to me as if I'm separating rocks from the soil, it is only mine to equally Love them, for without the rock, the soil falls away and without the soil, the rock could not sustain my needs...

Forward...

The best way to end all war is to give into Peace.

Like Atoms

Bomb.
Bomb.
Bomb.
Bomb.
Bomb!

We disregard that we don't know death.
Occasionally we stop thinking about the bomb
silent in its descent, much like death.
Sometimes only a murmur dropping in the air,
sensed in our unbending march.

Splitting children like atoms in a lab,
their mother’s wailing death after them.

We sense the bomb long after its fallen,
now motionless, shrapnel standing at attention,
immersed inside the face of horror.
It aches too much for us to re-imagine,
so we don’t, we see another movie,
hear another song, play a different game,
brains deadened, eyes closed to the noise found in war.

O! What a belief we've crafted of our bombs!

Toward Goodness

Perhaps thinking intentionally toward a more efficient way toward Peace, Love and Goodness for we humans on (H)eartH needn't be about the cosmological, but about the logical...

Need to be Kind

The need to be kind (charitable) is most efficient when directed toward Home and at human need.

This would, in time, negate the idea of "charity" as an "option" and instead make being kind the norm of our use of Home and one another.

Peace and Love are down with that.

(Let's begin. Shall we?)

Morning Spirit

The morning spirit enters without sound
as sunlight baptizes our waking Life.
The air sits stoically, refusing to move
as the birdsong awakes from the dark,
and worship smiles with the sacred ground.

I pray…

Discerning Glance of War

Image
"War has a way of creating a solemn numbness, crafting a dying language, where 'natural disaster' and 'collateral damage' sound identical. Murder has a way of creating its own language patterns."


Let us look again upon this with a discerning glance...

Natural disaster needs be defined: A major adverse event resulting from natural processes of the (H)eartH.

War needn't be defined. (War isn't considered a natural disaster.)

An adverse event will not rise to the level of a disaster if it occurs in an area without vulnerable populations.

War seems to rely on areas with a vulnerable population.

War is sounding more similar now to an adverse event resulting from humans, animals that are natural to the (H)eartH.

On second thought, I'd rather not look upon war again...

Rather think on Peace and Love.
My Lovely angel Love is an amazing example of natural beauty.
She has a heart so big that it beats for every one,
a spirit so loving, it breathes absolut…

War has a way of creating a solemn numbness,
Crafting a dying language,
where “natural disaster”
and “collateral damage”
sound identical.

Thoughts on One Truth

If the one truth is not to be known, then we're left to seek it without knowing, and, by the same token, if the one truth is indeed to someday be known to us, it will surely arrive with or without our seeking?

To simply be content in our not knowing the truth, then, is the flipside to our seeking and to our someday knowing it.

A Brief Discussion With Mathew

Image
Matthew 16:19:
"And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."

What of this verse?

(What of it do you desire to know?)

Does this not mean that the (H)eartH and the Heart(H) are Heaven and that Heaven is the HeartH, everything and all, known and unknown?

(Umm? What?)

Isn't the verse saying that the kingdom of Heaven is the Heart(H) and (H)eartH, the HeartH, and are equally bound by one another, bound by our creations upon it?

(It means that God shall give us the keys to Heaven if we will but believe in Him.)

But it says whatsoever shall we create on earth, we shall find in heaven, doesn't it?

(Yes, but-)

No buts. That's what it says. It says that whatsoever we loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. It means what it says. It means that they are a reflection of one another.

(That's taking the verse out of context…

A Mess of Things

Man, have I made a mess of things.
I do what I feel is the righteous thing to do,
but others seem to suffer.
The last thing I wanted was to hurt another,
another you and you and you and you,
hurt my father, hurt my mother,
hurt this one, hurt that one, too,
hurt my sister and hurt my brothers,
hurt my child, hurt my daughters,
hurt their mom for starters,
hurt their trust, hurt their love,
hurt my in-laws, hurt my wife!

Enough! Enough! Enough!
I've done plenty hurting in my life!
Done more than my fair share, right?

I've had enough, as have all the others,
been tumbling long after I started stumbling,
plummeting to the bottom without a hold on the top,
slamming head first into truth, couldn't stop,
hadn't the will, hadn't the brakes, didn't have the wings!

I tried flying, I tried dying, see?
Even tried living my newfound belief!
Enough! Enough! Enough! Enough!

Clarinet warbling and drum thumping,
violin weeping and guitar strumming,
holding me up in the pai…

Enough!

We need demand that our government get out of their lands, all of them.

Enough!

We need remember that America also foments the strife in the region under the guise of "American interests". (It's not much of a disguise when one truly considers the words "American interests".)

Enough!

Why are US interests more special than the good people of the middle east?

Enough!

Why do we have interests in the middle east at all, save for perhaps the implementation of programs and aid that lift them up as a peoples, not interests that continue to divide and conquer with our superior power?

Enough!

We only imagine that they've been warring without our influence. We need to open our eyes to the truth that is our own government's collusion, we the people would benefit greatly if we could but end our over consumption of the world's resources for our own "interests" here at home.

Enough!

Let us take actions to end our own governments involvement, not indis…

Quagmire World Over

The quagmire of war is the world over,
serving those that care not for the people,
only that they serve the machine that is war.

the new religion, the new thought, the new truth
in order for us to recognize Home and our kinship...

Serving

Have Me Believe

Some would have me believe that praying for the troops isn't about serving in wars, just or not, so I am praying for both sides, not for victory, but for the recognition of one another as human beings, as brothers and sisters. I will never denigrate the "warrior" or the "peacemaker", my friends, ever.

I pray for the day that "the war machine" (and the warriors who serve it) is no longer the strength of any nation, but that the strength of the world is seen in its Peace (and the peacemakers that serve it)...

Those Who Serve

I pray for those who serve and those who do not...

When men and women (militarily or not) serve a flag they are ultimately serving the machine that cares not for them as human beings but as a means to a profitable "end".

The good men and women in the military serve those that implement war not Peace.

War should be seen as repugnant by all, especially to those that serve. Bless all on both sides of any war, but remember, war should never be seen as our friend, it is human rage turned in on itself.

Policing the World

The US needs to stop policing the world. The UN is not much help when you have its power left in the hands of the "veto" nations, the US being the big dog, of course. The UN needs be replaced with the collective of the peoples on the (H)eartH, period.

Those in the military need rise up with the people's of the world, wave a flag of the world, nothing more and nothing less. They are mostly pawns in the military industrial complex's bottom line money-game. It is most (financially) profitable these days to lob a bomb or two or hundreds upon those without the power to stop them. We do have the power. We do. We.

Lobbing Missiles

"lobbing in a few missiles"... The ease of which we lob things about as if there is no other choice. Most sad.

Peace is not an agreement, Peace is. I know that doesn't do much as far as a "plan" is concerned, but when one talks of airstrikes, an abhorrent word to be sure, then Peace is already hobbled by the implementations of war.

Praying to the heavens (which I believe is beneath our feet) is part of the problem. Prayer is an action word, we have the power within ourselves to end all war, but it seems an easy way to avoid seeing our own collusion by then "leaving it up to God". That strategy might be a mistake, perhaps imagining that that is the way "we" want it to be handled is an error in j…

The Business Side of God

A how to of worship

______________

How much more will you need of the truth in order to know it?

(We’re going to need the full playbook, coach!)

There’s no such thing, quarterback spirit, the full playbook exists inside of you… and you and you and you and you and you, the key is finding it within.

(The same playbook exists inside of each of us?)

Yes, but each of you have different roles to play within the strategy.

(The same but different? This football stuff is harder than I thought it was going to be.)

Stop your bellyaching and breathe. Breathe and Love. Breathe and Love. Breathe and Love.

(Is this football practice or yoga?)

It’s a practice, a ritual, but you seem to have forgotten about the fundamentals of breathing human.

(Breathing human? I like that. Was that an analogy, coach?)

Yip, but let’s not analogize ourselves off of a cliff, or continue the back and forth of who’s right and who’s…

Demand It

For the sake of Love, I truly wish that so many would stop thinking of Miley Cyrus.

Stop being so damned judgmental of others, especially toward those whose behaviour we create through our expectations.

Let's do something that truly matters to humanity, something that doesn't feed our sick need to feel superior. (Derisive laughter is not the best medicine. As a matter of fact, it’s not medicinal in the least, it’s a sickness.)

There are so many more things that we should be talking about, like cleansing the water sources, the soil, and the air. Important issues, like cleansing humanity of their self-inflicted agony, like bringing our love and forgiveness to the forefront of our thoughts, like ushering in Peace and Laughter as a collective family of one, a laughter that is natural and healthy.

Let's take this time to demand that the US government NOT bomb anyone ever again!

Demand that all corporations begin to take responsibility for their destructive practices!

(H)eartH Mother

Image
The Mother (H)eartH is not weaker than the polluters,
it's just that she is very forgiving. Tick tock...

We can conquer that which holds ourselves away from sensing our purpose.
It is not to conquer anything, it is to submit to Home as most precious.
The way to do that is to cherish one another as beings in motion
toward the "unknown", upon Home and toward that which we shape,
we shape our experience of "reality" as we go forward together...

The love of self is the thing which we have had inexplicably altered/stripped away within ourselves.

The self gives rise to the collective, the Spirit of humanity's oneness.

War is not just in bombs and guns and vests of suicide and planes diving down their noise, it is in the toxins found in them and in humankind's misuse of poisons, of rape, of genocide, of destruction, of endless consumption, of human purpose! The warring walls are too much, too much for us to fathom if stood side by side- We'd read for eternity the names that war's God-awfulness has taken!

Thrice Cross

Three of them stood next to the other
as if they were proud of man’s savagery,
of man’s vile deceit!

We needn't look upon the cross,
let alone three of them,
we needn’t to in order to find our way to God.

God is inside of each of us individually,
I am only God when you and you and you
and you and you and you and you are God.

We decide when and where and how
and for the most part
who we are to become.

The “who” of We is the destination, my fine-feathered spirits.
But all of you good people know this to be true,
so the dance is required of me,
and that is now clear to see.

If you fail to see,
might I suggest you remember this belief’s source,
it is pouring through me as you read and as I see for the first time, too.
The veil lifts that much more for me.
God is within Me and I’m bringing God to We. See?

(We do, but do you, scribbler?)

Yes. Open your hearts to Me,
open your spirits to God,
to the truth of where We are…

The Moon's Empty Field

The deep orange moon slips the horizon
rising with the pace of Hamlet's ghost
moving across the span casement to casement,
a clear sky, three quarter glow, rind and seed.

The insects tap out their thrumming beat
as I inscribe without deliberation,
without plan, no calendar for my prayer,
orange to pink, pink to yellow, breathing color.

In this moon's rise is the ever changing hue of truth,
a faith conceived of hope. Dogs howl approval,
hearts howl the thumping veins of their surface,
I plead with the night to summon my speech.

Speak, scribe! Tell them of your journey,
tell them the story of themselves, you've sensed it,
they'll listen when you tell them of its breathing,
the hallowed veins of God’s ghost thrumming in you...

Not Meant

Love’s not meant to hurt,
it’s meant to rise up and be heard,
seen in the echoes of self-worth,
felt in the motion of our breathing birth.

Love’s not meant to screech or weep,
it’s meant to soar in living’s sleep,
swim in our beings down deep,
flow in the spirits that we keep.

Love’s not meant for fears oppression,
or to carry war’s fearful lessons,
or be silent to the final confession,
Love’s meant to stand tall despite the questions.

Love’s the soil. Love’s the water. Love’s the air.
Love’s the lion. Love’s the otter. Love’s the bear.
Love’s the stars. Love’s the shine. Love’s the flare.
Love’s the laughter. Love’s the hug. Love’s the care.

Love is…
