Living words softly adorn the earth
with visions of grace
ethereal clouds
and the whispering breath
of divine revelation
creating a glow of life-giving love
within our spiritual hearts
and souls
an eternal relationship
of communion
and sweet intimacy
a voluminous transparency
of flowing spirit
from the Beloved
sharing the light of awareness
moving and creating each being
moment by precious moment…
a gift and glory of great love
from God alone…

The Gift of Life

November 24, 2017

A living song of golden silence glows

deep within my being

a moving silence like breath

a soft caressing breeze

or the quiet sighing of love that creates

the miracle of life forming

in the magnificence of infinite expressions

like the light that rests easily on the ripples of the sea

clinging to a wave that rises

as it dances with the wind….

the mystics call it the beloved

for it sustains life as its very nature

a sacred giving of itself

an inner purity of innocence that blooms

in moonlight

a spark that becomes a flame

that lights the darkness

the beauty of healing hidden in the touch

of unseen hands

the love that draws a silent breath

when we forget to breathe

we are the rain for a thirsty earth

the vision and form

of life seeking itself

a silent surrendering passage

for the thrilling gift of belovedness

How does the Beloved call you….

September 30, 2017

 

 

We walk in sacred footsteps…
benefiting from centuries of pilgrims
pioneers and warriors of love
touched by energies forever flowing from so many
seeking the wellbeing of humankind
disciples of pure love….surrendered lives
beauty in the dew of every morning
power from every spiritual flowering..
a field of giving and sharing empowering prayer
open hearts and gifts of revelation…
a slipstream of altered states and holy possibilities..
And suddenly we awaken to the Beloved with open arms
calling us into new beginnings…asking only faith
in answering pure love….divine generosity….
a surrendering of claim or credit…a freedom
of flow and holy intention from which we come
every molecule cries and sings the music of God…
calling us home…..

Whispers to my Beloved….

Guide my morning flight and show me
what it would it be like to bring the dawn
to feel the sun rising over the horizon
warming rays of living energy
outshining the stars and dimming the moon
sunlight like raindrops playing in the leaves
gentle wind fluttering green
ruffling and tossing hair
stirring soft curls and rippling the river
what would it be like to push the ocean into waves
lift outspread wings to sigh and glide
in the sky with me
to smile through a child
in a mother’s arms
while gazing at her eyes
let me move with you to caress the skin of lovers
while stirring the clover in the meadow
and dance with long stemmed flowers
to heal an aching heart
listening to countless prayers
and moving through them to let each one
know I was there and how much I care
O let me taste the love that brings us into being
turns night into day and creates the change of seasons
let me rain on gardens and fall as snowflakes
in a first winter snow making it new
with the beauty of your touch
all the time you loving me forever loving thee
feeling one with your light and your mysterious night..
sweep me into your flight and make us one…

The depth of God

September 27, 2017

The deep unimaginable truth of God
is a plunge into mystery
a journey of faith and trust
the divine gift of the wilderness of loving
that only God can give

We can dream and create and imagine
a life we want…..
but the sacred experience
of encounter
opens a living light
allowing something seemingly
impossible to break through the words
a magnificence of presence
surrounding and infusing every molecule
of our being…..a streaming energy
that is its own glory and power and radiance
silencing everything else…

Nothing shakes or surpasses purity
when it happens….it is like slipping into truth
a wondrous revelation that could
never be proven but changes you forever….

Dawning of Love..

September 23, 2017

expressionsoflove

 

The vigil of silence just before dawn
is filled with the energy
and essence
of creating a new day
the presence of a world 
of new beginnings

the sacred listening
to one’s own heart
within the greater heart
in which we find
our very life

the source of the dearest one
from whom we come
as we wait for the promise
of a rising sun
to spill light upon the earth

surrendering to the flow
of pure love
and the faith and hope
that moves the becoming
of a morning

may love be the horizon
in the midst of storms
through loss and change
in great pain or flooding rains
that leave us reeling

may we find healing
in feeling
a greater surge of love
for each other and the courage
to begin again and again

pure love is the only response
that lights the way
to see beyond the loss
of our own personal paradise
to create another day

Fountain of Grace

September 17, 2017

Rassouli-Cosmos-art- (1).jpg flowing

Watched a man gaze into
the blazing white hot turbulence
of a volcano
saw the crashing walls
of a glacier fall into the sea
a hurricane wipe an island away
a child being born to parents of love
listened to the rumbling thunder and rain tonight
the lightning flashing outside my windows
thousands asking for prayer for things gone wrong
in their bodies…in cities…in countries…in homes
in hearts…in souls…in living spirits
streaming prayers for earth and children
i feel God everywhere in everything
forever grateful for gracious presence
for beauty that overwhelms
thrilling vigilance beyond time
magnificent love and gentling grace
raindrops talking to me
sliding down my windows
sometimes wondering if they are
the compassionate tears of God
my life feels a forever unfolding conversation
with infinite faces and intimate whispering silence
a glorious music….waves of energy
creating seas and skies and stars
heavenly bodies and rhythm of a pulsing heart
throbbing love beyond my words
a divine love eternally embracing each and
everyone as a beloved…
calling me awake to come
into healing arms…

Love and Light forever rising…

September 14, 2017
Messiah Rassouli 2
Pure love is forever rising from open hearts,
from surrendered souls,
from the beauty of light
in divine molecules and particles
…..from the elements….
the essence of presence
…..awakened awareness…..
love eternally flowing….reigning…….
rising from the ashes….
on the wings of music
and the rhythms of pulsing hearts
….dancing winds
and the enchanting fragrance
of the nearness
of God
…..manifesting….touching….transforming……
communion
a sacrament of existence
….timeless glory
glowing in sweet revelations
…..shining through faith
…..and the gaze
and watchful eyes
….the dearest love in all the world
……everywhere…..
pure prayer of divine caring
 and sharing
 breathing
 ..us into being..

We are God’s beloved ones…

September 13, 2017
eternal-annexation-1
Cannot count the many mornings
i have been present to the dawn
or how many nights of
wandering in a glowing internal light
aware of the flowing energy
when dawn and dusk and midnight touch
in the gaze and embrace of the beloved..
 
every moment becomes a communion
a divinely given experience
of the gift
of sharing in God as beloved
in creation as the kingdom
the body the house of the Lord
the indwelling presence of divine love
in the miracle of a truly living earth..
 
if we would only let it be
and learn to simply live in it
instead of upsetting
the phenomenal balance
and pure harmony
in which we were meant to exist..
 
we play and reflect and learn
as we become
proficient in imitation
and improvise
simply building sand castles
on the shore and letting a wave
return it to the sea..
 
when we create it is simply
a form of reflecting
inspiration and elation
the sweet joy of gratitude
and delight
we touch the divine
in dreams and visions of truth..
 
we return to earth
and realize we have been
in paradise all along
 
may we share the song
of each overflowing heart
and bask in the glory
of a great and generous God
blessing us eternally
for in truth
we are profoundly loved
 
and the great secret
of existence is that we
are the Beloved
 
we are God’s dearest creation
the ultimate achievement
life from life
light from light
made to ease his loneliness..
