here and now

you hope to reveal
the mystery within

you devour book after book
and seek your secret self
inside cathedrals
and upon mountains

when you ache for truth
open to the moment

the joy of heaven
the holy child
your perfect peace

gathers around you
and within you

seeking
to embrace
heal
and deliver you home
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 awakening

It's open now

all open

the fear
the love
the laughter

swirls
caresses
evaporates

you
and I
know the same dance

as time
swims around us
like colored ribbons

and we
children

ever ending and beginning
giddy with life energy

sing out
 loud and long and free
to the ends of the universe

that we have arrived
that we have come home

what was lost is found
and will not be lost again

 it is our joy
our innocence
our birthright

the nameless
formless
 intangible
essential

glows as light
 burns as fire
and quenches itself
again and again
as cool river water
and sweet spring rain

 I die daily
and am reborn
with every moment

a leaf falls
a bud opens

choose

 

Of all the words that exist in the world

Let us choose kind ones

Let them offer hope and encouragement

Let them speak of peace and of gratitude

Let them form visions of light in the air that we breathe

 

Our words are our power

 

Of all the thoughts in the world

Let us choose fruitful ones,

Let them imagine, wonder and revere

Let them be selfless and forgiving

Let them be free of delusion

 

Our thoughts become our reality

 

Of all the actions in the world

Let us choose compassion

Let every being on the earth be relieved of burden

Let every cold heart be warmed

Let every emptiness be filled

With the fullness of love

 

Our time is now

be the change  . . .  be the light
