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.

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.

HONESTY OF THE UNKNOWN

The true spiritual path is tough
At some point you may find yourself drowning
In an ocean of delusion
Games coming undone, unraveling
Beliefs that seemed so real
Shaking at their foundations
All this can feel overwhelming

Friend, learn to breathe under water
This drowning is the divine calling you
Inviting you to let it all go
And stay in the honesty of the unknown

Be softly still
And let what needs to fall, fall
There is no other way.

LIVE FROM INNER KNOWING


Discovering inner truth
Intuition and gut feeling
A deep instinct about things
And a wisdom that supports
That inner knowing

Is the only true authority we need
It is our connection to ourselves
To each other, to nature
And to God

Once discovered we must each find a way
To live from that deeply profound place
No matter what happens.

  • LIVE YOUR TRANSFORMATION

    If you truly believe
    In your deepest instinct
    In your heart of hearts
    In your innate wisdom
    That we are divine beings
    Connected to all that is
    With inner authority
    And imbued with a magnificence
    Beyond the self that is
    Conditioned to smallness
    And held captive by fear

    Now is the time to live that knowing
    Not sometime in the future
    When it feels more comfortable
    Or you feel more awake or aware
    Or more confident and secure

    But now
    For there is dramatic change taking place
    In every quadrant of the universe
    And within each living cell
    Of each living being
    And within the fabric of reality itself

    And you, and I, are being called
    To embrace the transformation
    And live from the truth we know
    And the love we are

    We are not not passengers
    We are leaders and participants.

    REVOLUTION IN CONSCIOUSNESS

    There is a revolution happening
    IN YOU

    The door has always been there, throughout time,
    But always it has been a partially shut door
    We had to squeeze through
    To discover our true nature
    And our one compassionate heart

    That door is now WIDE OPEN
    And freely available to all
    No need to squeeze through
    No privilege of enlightenment for the few

    Now it is possible for all
    Still it requires persistence,
    Surrender of the righteous belief system
    And a willingness to face ourselves

    But there is a revolution happening
    IN YOU

    Friend, this is the time, now, here, in the midst of this structural collapse
    Open your heart and mind
    Turn off the fear, and all the causes of fear
    And embrace your inner authority
    As the cosmic being you are
    Stop all activity that distracts you from your one true purpose, INNER REVOLUTION.

    WISE UP

    Those who does not know themselves
    Cannot discern the difference
    Between the snake oil seller
    And the wise one
    And will often follow the snake oil seller
    Because their persuasive techniques
    Appeal to the unmet emotions
    Still held in the unexamined and unconscious system

    Wisdom is not quite so easily fooled

    We are in the intensity of those times.
