Love never fades

“Love never fades”
She says
And the tears well up.
It’s all still the same
This deep love in my heart
As I look around
I really see the winter wonderland.
I no longer wonder where the love went
It’s right here
Deep within
Ready to break through
and and warm up the soul’s coldness.
No more dark night of the soul
No more clinging and wishing inside
The soul is now warmed
With this lovelight that never fades.

Welcome the Eternal Flame

It may seem dark and stormy outside
And it may be tempting to hold onto
Those dark feelings, the pain, the anger.
*
But today, we can usher in a brilliant light
A light that lives on within the heart
A light that no man can dampen.
*
Just imagine, your whole being
From head to toe, your whole being
Soaked in a healing, loving light.
*
That light then concentrates in your heart
And with every heartbeat, it arises
Spilling and spreading out into the world.
*
This gift of eternal love and light
Is yours, it’s free, and it’s right there
Inside your heart forever.
*
Open to its presence and step right in
Radiate that light to all in need
It’s your own eternal flame.

Your story

Did I tell you about the time

I awoke in the middle of the night

To see my guardian angel

Floating above, in a soft glowing light?

~

Have I mentioned before

The time when I was on the verge

And the end didn’t happen

Something unknown halted the urge.

~

Then there was the day

When the universe opened up with a smile

And I knew I was guided on this journey

Moment to moment, and mile after mile

~

Can you tell me about those times

When your were guided or broken?

Why is it that some of those deepest of human times

Love, heartbreak, mystery,  the thoughts go unspoken.

~

So drink down your warm tea

As you sit with me here

Please tell me your story

We can together forever hold it near.

 

A Tribe

She walked in the room
Breathed deeply
I am at home
This is my tribe.
*
Hearts were wide open
Love flowed everywhere
She looked with all of herself
Third eye awareness.
*
How many lifetimes
Had they met in this way?
A cosmic consciousness
To love, serve, remember.
*
Rooted together
Healing the self and other
Growing stronger each day
A tribe to call home.
*
She walked out of the room
Carrying with her
The tribe’s light
Rooted in loving, serving, remembering.

A cold and sunny day

It should be spring, a few days away

Bright sunshine burns

Through cold air

And lands on brown earth

~

And she lays on me, beside me

Breathing

Not breathing

She won’t be here on the equinox

~

But on this cold and sunny day

She lays quietly on a bed

In the sun

Covered in a towel

~

On this cold and sunny day

She is more then a cat to us

She is our baby, sister, daughter

She represents love, and cuddling

~

An angel, a messenger, dear friend

Who takes her last breath

And moves somewhere else

On this cold and sunny day.

This Mountain: A story of and lesson in ease

It is cold out; it is June and we are at 8,000 feet in the sky. I do not believe it is only 43 degrees at 7 in the morning

So I check several sources and yes it is 43

But I am from Maine, so I can wear shorts and layers

I head out toward the mountain and pass a lady along the way

She wears a hat, a jacket, sweat pants, and gloves

She is not from Maine, I gather

As I say good morning

~

I begin to jog, it feels good and easy

Until I get to the slopes

And the lactic acid kicks in

Heart pounding

Legs aching

Lungs crying

I walk

and I stop

I almost crawl up some of the steep slope

But I stop again

and I look around me

Taking the time to find the ease and beauty

in the moment

~

At any moment we can find this

We can stop our uphill battle

be present

and see the beauty of the mountain

of melting snow

of rushing water

At any moment we can breath

And honor our human condition

as we step into the here and now

at any moment we can let go and simply be

~

I re-evaluate my route on this morning walk/ hike. I  jog

Starting and stopping

jogging and hiking

Sliding down the mountain

Breathing and noticing

Finding the ease for myself

as I look for the way back

Back and back and back

~

I stop and breathe and notice God’s creation

all around me

within me

this journey goes on

I change paths and go further, further, further then I had planned

and all that I must do is notice, seek ease, trust that I am guided toward

exactly where I need to be.

~

May all beings be able to stop and let go of the struggle

May all being know peace, joy and ease

May all beings uncover the truth

of that which is the only permanence

the alpha, the omega, the mother-father God within

And find a way to create ease from the heart.

Me and You, Don’t We See?

It’s hard being just ME

With an EGO from here to there

Don’t you see, don’t you see?

It’s hard being just ME.

~

It must be difficult being YOU

Over the gap from here

Don’t you see, don’t you see?

I want to meet you over there.

~

It’s almost impossible to be WE

We have to go to that space

Where we can see

Beyond the bounds of time and space

~

Let’s evolve our consciousness

So we can see, we can see

Beyond this limited dimension

Of a distant YOU and ME
