the beauty and power calling me to thee….

Awakening in the night….
I arise with a lightness of vision…
a softer step…a gift of flight
a call to dance….
a profound insight breaking free…..
each cell a universe of thee…….
textured reign of colors….
a glowing moon….
a rich and golden sun dripping fire….
a play of night and day……

a melting away of time…..
my only joy is a rhyme to align
with thy glory………
to live the journey of infinity…
the intimacy of a sacred privacy……
a creative alliance
with thy imagination and brilliance…
thy presence…
the lightning of laughter……
the vulnerability of tears….
your sheltering arms….
and the whispering charms and tenderness
with which you bless my existence…….
a caressing lullaby…..
I sigh….and cry in beauty….
far beyond my words…..
resting in a symphony of serenity……..
for you are everything
that is pure and true……..

An invitation to create…

July 17, 2018
From this human condition…
we are drawn into a deep unknowing
in the purity of God….
a cloud of unknowing that surrounds and opens the way
into the mystical existence of the divine…..
when all our words and rituals and icons fall away
and we enter into Oneness
by faith and grace……
.we cross over into a vast and invisible
communion of awareness
of pure Spirit ….
in which we truly are Home….
a way of Being that is timeless…and eternal..
God moves in this great spacelessness 
and creates a world of natural beauty 
where we can experience Life…..
by embracing the Joy of creating….
of otherness….
of great love ….and union…
the lightness of play 
and the richness of feeling…
taste…touch….sight…sound…smell……..
a glorious visionary journey 
of sharing and creating together…
discovering uniqueness 
in the Light of being human……
an extraordinary expression 
of kindness and loving
interaction and relationship…
I pray we might evolve 
into this phenomenal invitation 
and realize the truly glorious
 and ultimate gift of life 
by welcoming love 
as the ultimate expression 
of being….

Sweet vanishing into God

This mystic cannot help her vanishing

into the living mystery of God…

it calls the soul beyond everything I have ever known

and then surprises by manifesting creatively…..

infinitely…….and intimately

in the feathering of divine essence

as such variation and beauty…

i experience a melting of all identity

in the softness of love

and the magnificence of light

in the gift of caressing waves of peace….

God is an artist of stroking color and vision…

a sculptor of glorious expression….

the sound and symphony

of the evolution of spinning stars…

a glowing luminous and embracing moonlight …

mountainous stairways to the sky…….

whispering tenderness….

an interior river of flowing peace…….

an eternal companion…….

magnifying and enlarging and deepening

the expanse and reach of divine love..

the sacred path

of the sweet revelation

of relationship

where everything is transformed into life itself..

i surrender into the sacred surroundings

of an absolutely enchanting Beloved..

this is the exquisite and elegant dwelling

within the One

from whom we come..

The glorious Holy Spirit…

July 8, 2018
All glory is thine, O Lord, and you generously share it all with us through pure love….
I roam through so much beauty in my wandering …
exploring the offerings of all creativity,
 of all the arts, nature’s wonders, all the manifestations we experience
 and I feel touched and grateful.
 
 I am aware of the miracle of life and being 
and am truly humbled by the Source of it all. 
 
Yet the key to it all is hidden in how my life totally changed 
 
when I became aware of Spirit…
 
the elusive and myserious essence 
of who we are in our deepest center 
and the way we are connected 
and One 
with the magnificent Spirit of God.
 
….the sweet Breath that spirals and circles and flows between and within us….
the gentle breeze of relationship….
 
the invisible, transcendent, transparent, translucent, glow
 of the light of the pure joy of the love 
that gives life 
and lives within us…
 
the precious grace of spiritual embrace….
that exists and shares and delights in who we are together.
 

Spirit is the Secret of Life and of All Existence.

It is beyond category, beyond name, beyond gender,

 

it is the living mystery of the grace of the divine…

elusive, playful, forever flowing….

eternally streaming moments of presence…..

a glorious lightness of being.

 

I can only witness to this great mystery….

and reveal to you it is in each and every life….

in each one of you…

may you awaken to it.

Morning prayer

July 7, 2018

May our prayer be deep, sincere, heartfelt, may each being be filled with love, permeating every cell. May our compassion for all life be nurtured by the Source of All Life…..May we live and dwell in the light of the Soul and flow in the Spirit of divine generosity. May we honor the earth and its gifts, behold the universe with gratitude, care for each other with kindness….. May we have faith in the gifts of the Spirit, in unconditional love….in the eternal spring and the renewing of life…May we celebrate pure love and the beauty that flows and manifests from it…..May we be transformed by the alchemy and energy flowing freely in God’s intentions for our lives…..We are called into communion to find our oneness with the wonder and mystery from which we come…

the bride of freedom

the bride of freedom

anointed in the morning light

united in joy and the purity of love

a covenant flowing

between the Source of All Life

and a surrendering heart…

the glory of the mystery

of oneness

from which there is no separation

home is the beloved

the sacred heart and sanctuary

the wonder

of the indwelling spirit

the treasure

of the kingdom within us

the infused grace

of union

and belovedness

the unseen dancing flame

 perhaps you cannot see

the face of love

because you are looking through

the beloved’s eyes

 

only a lover can see the sun

or dwell in the eye

of solar storms

and not be burned

by the flames

dancing all around the heart

 

perhaps the mysterious

fragrance of heaven

eludes you

because it follows where

you walk

 

perhaps you see an empty chalice

because you are the wine

it holds

 

longing holds the vision

just beyond our reach

but in the symmetry

of love

 

oneness fills our cups

with an endless flowing stream

of the purest wine

A quiet place of grace…

There is a quiet place in the soul

where hope and love are eternal..

.where we rest and feel communion

with the Source of All Creation…

and of All Life…..

a place where breathing is easy

and faith is a grace….

a soft place…..

beyond words….

the Beloved goes before us

to prepare the way

and meets us with open arms……

Garden of the soul

Here in the darkness of night
ever aware of an approaching light
arising to bring the dawn..

a veil of cool silence covers
and shields the garden
with the soft glow of the moon..

hidden deep within the silken shadows
of a caressing lingering darkness
a sacred energy illuminates the soul..

a divine Presence radiant with love
lifts the spirit flooding it with Joy
sending it soaring on a flight of its own..

the heart opens and expands
pulsing with a rhythm aligning
with the streaming flow of life itself..

something stirs inside igniting a flame
drawing you into the fire of pure love
brighter than a hundred suns..

and you surrender into the open arms
of a welcoming Beloved
who is whispering your name..

My Cup Runneth Over

May 11, 2018

 

My Cup Runneth Over

The alchemy of love is the key
to the beauty and vision
of my experience of life
the sacred earth and universe
and the precious hearts and souls 
so dear to me..
for when the energy flows from
relationship with the Source
and Oneness of the Beloved
I dwell in the belovedness
of beholding
and profound gratitude
for the sweetness it brings…..
Life becomes a psalm
a hymn of glorious music
that soothes my soul…
Peace….may peace be with you
now and always….
