WITH TEARS IN OUR EYES

Eventually fate arrives
At every door
With the same invitation
To return home
Until then
We must live boldly
Tenderly, authentically
Wisely and freely
We must dance with tears in our eyes
And the beauty of life
In our blazing hearts
Tasting the sweetness
Even as it vanishes into emptiness.

EMPTY & SILENT

What does this moment have to teach us
We who are so full of ourselves
Who arrive everywhere filled to the brim
The moment can only teach those who are empty

If we are full where is the room for anything new?

The wisdom and intelligence of this moment
Cannot compete with the fullness of self
It’s a different kind of intelligence
It can only be heard from emptiness

And so to really hear, to really be able
To receive the deepest wisdom this moment
Has to offer us, in its vastness and eternal depth
We must enter this moment naked and empty

The moment has everything to teach us
But our task must be the seemingly arduous one
Of emptying and not filling up again.

—————-

To be available
For divine intelligence
To flow into us and through us
We must become empty
And silent.

THE GARDEN IS BEAUTIFUL

We are dancing in an endless ocean of love
Swimming with the beautiful ones
Unlocking the door to eternity
Feeling the breath of the ecstatic wind
Catching a glimpse of the sun
As it pours out its light
For the lovers of the world


The Garden is beautiful
Because you are in it

HAVE SOME KINDNESS

Understand how difficult it is
For most people to face themselves
And meet their unresolved emotions

Know how tough it is for you
To bear what feels unbearable
And have compassion and kindness
For those who just can’t do it

Not as some holier than thou thing
But as a genuine recognition
Of how hard it is to let go
Of all that has been held onto

The ruts of conditioning run deep
And are hard to heal.

OPEN MIND, OPEN HEART

When mind and heart are open
A natural harmony is inevitable

When either one are closed
Division and righteousness prevail

The door of possibility is open
And the invitation is clear

Do whatever it takes
To open mind and heart

Opening the mind is tricky
As there are veils upon veils

Opening the heart is painful
Covered over as it is by defendedness
Born of past hurts
And conditioned beliefs

But the warrior in search of truth
Is tenacious and willing.

A FEATHER HAND

Who has not felt the gut wrench of grief
Drowning in the uncontrollable wave

Which one has never felt broken
Fragility laid bare, wounds exposed

All beings stand equal
At the altar of eternity

When the veneer is rubbed off
Each will stand naked
In the presence of the unconditional
Adorned only in whatever humanity
They have salvaged from their existence

The day I fell out of the world
I was caught by a feather hand
That has held me ever since

Now words just tumble out
As if by themselves.
