The Gift of Belovedness

April 30, 2019

The Gift of Belovedness

In the gentle darkness

of early morning

before the golden rays of sun

warm the earth and light our way

the heart listens

and the silent soul

swings and sways in the air

of centering prayer

plays and nestles in a softness

of whispering pines

and the caressing

tenderness of a breeze

blessing new leaves of early spring

everything begins to sing

when the beloved appears

so very near and dear to every heart

a love so vast that it will last

from this precious moment through

all the moments of our lives

as a sweet sheltering spirit

that thrives eternally to see

the faces of love gazing in adoration

in this dancing rhythm

of creation

that sweeps us all in arms

of deep devotion

forever new and feeling

so powerfully real

 we know love is a grace

of freedom to be

with God

in the breathless mystery

of belovedness.

Discovering the Flow…

April 23, 2019
Jesus close-up by Yongsung KimGently awakened to the essence of Spirit and great Presence….
am feeling the privilege and experience of life
 in such a deep way….
aware of the incredible Joy of being Alive
 and in relationship with the aura of belovedness
and love that emanates from the Oneness the mystics celebrate.
Their songs ring out from age to age
and open the path for all of us..
.each experience the presence in a unique and intimate way
according to our nature and longings….
one feels the resonance and the call 
of being drawn to the empowering light within…..
the warm breath….the beauty….the cosmic visions…
.for we are touched both infinitely and intimately by a companion….
a presence…..a silence….music….rivering songs…
the tenderness of embrace…
a feeling of home…
and a sanctuary of surrounding freedom 
that only pure love can give…
a sense of belonging….
and
it is for this… we are created……

Blessings and Love on Easter morning..

Felt the vigil through the night
so powerfully…
felt the voice of God
like soundings in the sea
from ancient times
in the scriptures
to the revelation of the renewing
of the earth
of our hearts and souls
and the communion of Spirit….
Heard the resonance
of the Voice of Love
shaking the sanctuary
deep within each one of us…
which brought trembling tears
and deep Joy….
and a prayer
that all might be led by Love
each and every day..

Spirit to spirit….

Rassouli-Bridge-of-D (1)
We create a connection..
a bridge that dissolves distance..
when our spirits are free..
for we activate a power of love
that moves in the pure stream of energy
that is not bound to mind
and matter only..
but the pure flow of the Beloved..
the fusion of being..
of oneness..
that centering beauty
that creates the world we share..
it leaps like the neurons in our higher mind..
leaps like faith..
leaps into the noosphere of the divine milieu..
into supramind..
into the cosmic wonder
of God..
that makes all things possible..

Love is the life-giving energy of existence

April 11, 2019
We have tapped into the higher power….the wonder……..the energy………the true secret of life….and the mystics never stop whispering and singing the Joy
because it is the very Nature of communion…..of empowering us to flow with Creation…..the Creator…..and our own deeper instincts and vision. Everything in the world
can be misused, but to deny this flow is to deny the beauty….visually…..mentally….emotionally….physically……spiritually is to deny our true freedom to love and create
with a purity of intention………..that guides us to touch the eternal……  When we find the breakthrough to love with our whole hearts….our whole minds…..our whole bodies…all our beautiful senses….our whole being…..we set free our spirit to change the world…..within us…..the potential and capacity to love is truly our oneness…..which is the beautiful way the child in each of us leads us to BE………….to PLAY…………….to CREATE………to BEHOLD………..to fall into WONDER….
One of the reasons I speak from the magnificence of the spaces between us…….is to be able to fill it with that beauty…………..not the endless detail….of routine……or words of captivity…the Spirit cannot be contained………………we know that in our experience……
Pure Love by its very nature cannot be exclusive………..it soars……..it has wings………….invisibility………transluscence……….transparency…………….can ride the wind…………touch another with our breath…….our visions………..our songs…………that deep gift that makes our hearts beat faster…..our longings dance their way into our lives and the lives of others…..it is hope….it is faith………..it is the alchemy that casts its golden glow and light in the incredible beauty of new moments of creation…..no one can stop it……….nor are we meant to…..it is the feast that is given to us in the PRESENCE of the SACRAMENT of the BELOVED’S intention for us………..in the very way we are loved……inclusively and thrillingly…….peacefully…..and intimately…………kindly………..and eternally…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

We touch the stream………..of the dream…………..the flow………..the depth………………..the mystery………..that gives life……….the rarified air of belovedness and expressing love in the ways given to us to do this……….
My place is filled with the images and energy of love……and our visions and dreams of it………….the cup of the holy grail contains what no one can see or take away…….or forbid……….Oh they try to imitate in ways to let them control it………….but it cannot be controlled……………..it is the flow of life…….
and it is meant for everyone……………
Dear friend…………..we just keep on keeping on…….being true to gentling this existence………setting it ablaze with this excitement of the light and spirit of love……
scattering the chain of existence through the elements…….through vision………..through love itself………….we let it live and thrive in the sparks falling from heaven within us….

when mystics sing

March 10, 2019

When mystics sing

 

I have had the great privilege

of feeling

the breath of love overflow

from my soul through these lips

to discover the wings of spirit unfolding

and coming to life to sing

of the joy of existence

the deep gift of being loved..

by a vast and cosmic creator and

receiving such an

intimate and sweet wave

of communion

that I rejoice and feel the sun

rising within my

very being..

the moon and stars

blessing my night

and lighting my way

through each and every

precious day

 

I wonder if we will ever

awaken to the bliss

of this heaven on earth

and celebrate

it with the beauty

of the One

from whom we come..

A portal of freedom only you can see…

February 24, 2019

an opening portal…….the womb of infinite possibilities…..a vision of light……the fire of the soul…..a mystical veil………….an alchemy of love………a sacramental moment…..

 

In the heart of a hurricane is a calm center….and in all life there is a stillness…a centering quiet from which rises our prayer and awareness of love…a beauty of presence…the immortal Beloved..the Spirit from which we come….a music which sings and whispers and creates our sighs and guides our songs…a glorious freedom….the sigh and breath of Christ……the laughter of Buddha….the power of Shiva and Shakti….Krishna and Radha….the caressing of angels….the hope and openness of mystics and poets….rays of the sun…..the glow of the moon…a rainbow in the mist….an opening to grace……a purity of soul….and the kingdom within us inviting us to live as One…the quality and integrity beyond time…..the embrace of the universe…created for us….our muse…..our highest wisdom…..guides our way………listen to the deep soundings of the sea…..and behold the vision of God…..the revelation of the ultimate Joy……
