The Eden Inside

Inside each human being
Is a garden
The state of each garden
Is reflected in the world
What we cultivate
And what we grow
How much we tend to
Or how much we neglect
Our garden
Is our choice
No one else’s

Many gardens lie barren
Deserted and overrun
With weeds and garbage
Self neglect is an effect
Of trauma and bad conditioning
Yet still there is a way back

Know this inner garden
Tend to it
Love it
Plant beautiful flowers
And water them daily
And slowly slowly
Watch that inner eden grow
And see the impact it has
On your life.

Human Being a Miracle

You wear the universe
As your clothes
Your hair the stars
As they fly across the sky

What miracle are you
That you speak and dance
And feel the beauty and the sorrow

You, yes you, pure consciousness
Walking this world
Clothed in this wondrous universe
Clothed in form
Yet still formless

You seem to be so real
Made of matter, skin and bone
Yet you are water, and space
All energy weaved together
And called a human being
You are being
Not ‘a’ being
But beingness itself

If only you could see
What miracle you are.

The Mystery of the World

This world, our experience of reality
Is not what it appears to be
There are hidden mysteries within it
Secret mysteries we know nothing about
Sometimes we touch these mysteries
And see beyond the veil
When reality doesn’t conform to our ideas
Or we experience some deeper intelligence
That takes us by complete surprise

But most of us take reality for granted
We think we know it
And we are separate from it
Born into it
And that’s that

A grave error has been made
An assumption
That the mind,
Reliant on perception of five senses,
Can know reality
But it cannot

And so here is the thing dear one
The eye that can see beyond
The wisdom that can see into
And the mind that isn’t made up
Can be open to the mystery
That is this world
The mirror in which we look
The miracle, the majesty, the beauty
And the vast intelligence
That we are inside and deeply part of

No conclusion must be drawn
But lived as awe and wonder.

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.
