O Light of My Life

July 18, 2019

Rassouli-goddesses-G.jpg Grace of Alpha 1

O beautiful light of my life,

inspiration of my soul,

and the One who opens my heart!

I awaken in this silent darkness

and feel the ever expanding Joy

your Presence gives.

How do I share it?

How do we learn to live with

the infinity of you

that opens into

all that reaches beyond

everything we know.
______

All that you are is so much more

than all that manifests

before our eyes,

more than every universe

and the immeasurable skies

we name and describe!

__________

You go on creating,

dwelling in the unseen,

revealing to us

the limits of our control

in a world in chaos,

inviting our faith in your

compassion, your mercy,

your forgiveness,

and the greatness of your love.

________

You open your arms to gather us

in the comforts of your inexpressible grace.

Oh, strengthen our faith in your reach,

in your power over all that exists.

Help us surrender our

foolish delusions that we know

anything at all about

who you truly are!

It is difficult for us to

comprehend the endless space of you,

to imagine vast

unlimited possibilities.
________

We fall on our knees, hide our faces,

and feel the fear of such greatness.

You scatter wildflowers

around us, caress us with

soft breezes, help us up

and gather us close to your heart.

We feel unworthy and

unable to know how to live

in helplessness.

_____

Though shadows hover

over the world,

though fears coil around

our thoughts

to make us doubt and

worry and wonder

how we will live,

how we will find our way,

it is faith that rises from deep

within our souls that

kisses hope alive.

_______

We use words to try and speak of you,

words so small

they fall like autumn leaves before

your magnificence.

We sing and the song cannot

reach around the divine mystery of

of all that you are.

All creation pales before

the brilliance that blinds us

in your glory.

________

Your prophets and poets and mystics,

your divine ambassadors,

your angels and archangels,

your messengers of love,

share countless stories of your miracles,

your goodness, and your gifts,

and yet they cannot touch

the omnipotence of you.

_________

Oh teach us to surrender and stop

fighting divine truth that cannot be changed

or hidden or controlled!

Show us the way to trust your

promises and live in the kingdom of you,

an existence where all are welcome!

Awaken our spirits flowing from

your divine spirit,

spiraling and touching the earth

and opening the bridge

that connects all worlds to

the kingdom of you.

_________

I reached the end of all we know,

became lost on paths to nowhere and

saw the futility of my words,

and I called out to you,

night after night after night,

day after day after day.

With an open heart, I asked

you to pray in me, for I no longer

knew how to pray.

Perhaps, I never did.

I surrendered all that I ever

believed I was.

_________

You swept me into your blinding beauty,

and overwhelming love,

as volcanoes erupted, and hurricanes blew,

tornadoes wiped out towns,

waves washed over islands and

earthquakes split open the earth.

________

I saw through the sun.

I saw the stars fall from the sky.

I saw all the evil done in the world,

as mountains crumbled,

and I saw there was no darkness great enough

to hide from your gaze.

Yet, in the midst of every vision,

you held me close to reveal the truth

that the only life I have

is the one you’ve given me.

__________

The only life that exists beyond it all

is you, and we are the light in your loving eyes.

We come alive when you create us

and we are lost in your gaze

in the blink of an eye.

___________

I became a living flame of your love

burning with love for you.

My only life was consumed in

a love beyond everything that exists.

___________

I live in the fire and creation of your love,

and I love through the power of

your love moving through me.

____________

This is the testament of my heart,

my song that sings

of where I have been and

of what I have seen,

and what I share with you now

with outstretched hands

and an open heart.

The touch of the Beloved

July 14, 2019

529133_3743255867943_725762443_n

 

Beauty blesses our eyes
softens our hearts
to open to the vision rising within us
and the Beloved slips in
expanding the soul
beyond our comprehension

O mesmerizing Presence
breath of our breath
our eager vigil is constant
forever watching for glimpses of thee
as surrendering lovers

O dear one
the Beloved has swept the vision
into divine arms and hands
touching hearts and souls with creative freedom
and one can only behold such results
with humility and bewildering awe
to feel the empowering energy
that penetrates those who are attracted
to the sacred path
and footprints of such a Beloved

When Pure Love
enchants and penetrates the hearts
of mortal men and women
infusing them with the Light
of the divine source
conception occurs
and the magnification of Life itself
begins to stir and divide
and generate cells
to create new offspring
of the divine

Spirit is brimming and running over
the chalice of the heart
and scattering orbs of light
from the sensual dew of lips
kissed by the Beloved

Super strings of Light
dancing in quivering whiteness
a milky way of ecstasy
whirling with spinning stars
and golden nectar
mingling with the essence of roses
and night bird songs
soaring on wings of transparency
like membranes
of embryos
shimmering with the emerging
beginnings of life
creating a new world

Drawn into the fertile valley
of many moons
and suns
a divine plan begins
to unfold
and grant us the right
to be born again
cradled in the arms
and gaze of eternal eyes
flaming with vision

the light and life and love of oneness

unnamed (13).jpg light and love

 

Opening my eyes in the night….
am flooded with light
of awareness..
surrounded by quiet
yet feel the vibrating energy
of creating around the world
across the universe
molecules dancing
divine romancing
everywhere at once
spirit whispering within
rushing water
an infinite sky
warm breath
the fire of the sun
softened by love
a symphony in the
music of the wind
an open heart
a peaceful soul
divine mind beyond my own
a mist and rolling fog
lightning flashing
a gentle rain
the earth is a fresh spring
a shimmering life-giving flow
prisms of color
eternal peace

The Great Mystery of the Universe

June 12, 2019

This world could be a vast wasteland

where life is not possible..

but you with your deep love spread your light and warmth

gave us the spirit of your being

and formed us as beings with your very life and breath..

gave us a home of beauty and complexity

you made life beautifully self-sustaining

and gave us the grace of your own eternal nature…

you created a place with endless variation of form

and matter and infused them all with the miracle

of life and the capacity to love..

you created the seasons that veil the earth with glory..

you saw all that you made and gave us eyes to see..

you spread flowers and fragrance to enchant us..

formed oceans and forests and mountains..

gave us the miracle of touch and the sound of music

to soothe us…winds to refresh the earth..

air to breathe..and fire that would not destroy us..

scattered stars to enchant us..

a glowing moon to light the night..

a sun to light the day.. and softened it

to make things grow… to nurture and feed us..

filled the trees with fruit..fresh springs to

give us water to drink..rivers and gardens

and invited us into this cosmic dance

to give us joy..you watch over us

and you open our hearts to feel your love..

you touched this existence

and created a paradise for all..

a kingdom…and crowned us with

the divine mystery of spirit

to keep us free..

humbled and forever in awe..

we thank thee now and always

for you.. our immortal beloved.. and for your

generosity and great kindness..

for your vision and love..

and our oneness with thee..

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….

April 15, 2019
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….
