The Separate Becomes Whole in You

I will not offer solutions
To your existential or real life dilemmas
Nor will I offer you
Spiritual isms
That may satisfy the mind
But leave the heart aching
I won’t promise an easy path
I can’t say there is a painless life ahead
And I definitely cannot say the outside world will change

But I am saying, when you stop turning away,
When you cease running, or avoiding, or even explaining
When your stories lose their meaning and power
And you have the strength and vulnerability
To turn and meet your own demons
Your own imagination
The sorrow of suffering
The pain of distortion
The deceit of the world
And the incessant nature of mind

Something happens that changes everything
As though, by and by,
You fall into a slip stream of natural intelligence
That brings depth, wisdom, grace
And acceptance of your experience
And the world

And the unbearable becomes bearable
The broken becomes unbroken
The separate becomes whole
And the unloved and unlovable
Become love and loved

This is the journey.

Heal the Illusion Through Love

Life is too short
For fakery
Too urgent
And quick to pass
To deny love
Any longer

We came here to love
Not for fame, power or evil
They are side shows
We came to love
To remember love
To bring it to life
And to live it
Everything else
Is an illusion

Don’t believe the illusion
Any longer
Don’t believe power’s deceptive allure
Don’t invest in self importance
Or fame’s tantalizing offers

Only the truest and deepest love
Can heal the illusion of separation.

Keep on Loving

Here is the thing
The bottom line
Just keep on loving
In the best and deepest way you can
Keep on walking the love road
On and on
Sure, sometimes you will fall off,
But that’s the time
To dust yourself down
And get back on the road
Don’t worry what others say, do, or think
Or if the world goes crazy and falls apart
Or if people judge you or misunderstand you
Just stay true to love as you know it
By and by, as you walk that path,
Through perceived failure and even darkness
Great wisdom and compassion will arise
In the core of your being
And you will touch profound joy and grace
And others will see a light shining from your heart
And they may begin to walk the love path
That’s all that really needs to happen,
And all that really can happen.

The Veil is Thinner

There is a veil between worlds
Unseen, unknown and mysterious
Where once we were all but trapped
In this reality
And only occasionally did we breach the veil
At auspicious moments
Through mind expansion
Or dramatic events
Now things are changing
And the veil is thinner
Where once only a few glimpsed eternity
And the radical truth of things
Beyond the veil
Now many millions are seeing
And are shocked
And even find it hard to function any longer
In this limited reality
The veil is thinner
And what we took to be reality
Is fading, dissolving, disintegrating
And we must take heart
And allow this dissolvement
For we are powerless to stop it
And must allow divine intelligence
To guide us

The veil is thinner friend
And all this radical sensitivity you feel
Is the awakening from a deep sleep
That has captivated us for centuries
But is now drawing to a close
Everything is in an evolutionary state.

A Divine Thought

The truth is
That nothing of form lasts
And impermanence
Is our outer nature
It is the very cloth we wear

Make the formless
Your true residence
So that, when your time comes,
Your clothes fall effortlessly
Upon the ground
And you are revealed
As that which
You have always been
A divine thought
In the mind of god.

Care So Deeply

Care so deeply
You stop controlling life
Care so much
You stay as love

When the impulse comes
To fall into righteous judgment
And it will
Care so powerfully
You stay as openness itself
And just love
The world, other people
Will find themselves
Through your love and openness
Through your simple presence
But righteous judgment
Creates walls and prisons
And makes everyone mad

Don’t play that game any more
But care so deeply
You love the world back to truth
Back to its rightfulness
Back to its innocent heart.

Time To Get Your Shit Together

There, I said it,
And even though some will reject it
Some may hear this simple phrase
As coming at the right time
I speak to those
Who are ready to bring an intensity
An earnestness, a devotion,
Yes even an urgency
To their search and discovery
Spiritual emergence is not just a passive
Acceptance of whatever comes
It is that but something else also
A steadfast determination
To tear down the walls of falseness
And to break open
The hard shell of phony protection
That requires vigilance and attendance
Presence and resolve
If there is any resolution to be made
Let it be the resolution
To emerge from any dreaming
From the imagination
From fear and old conditioning
From the tyranny of mind
To let the old go
And become the depth itself
The love and the kindness
And the power that comes with it.
