Good Morning Beloveds~

The sun is just now peeking over the horizon, casting its warm rays onto the rocky mountains and coloring the clouds in a soft velvety amber glow~
Just sitting on the porch with my eyes closed and giving thanks for this moment and for all of the opportunities there are for me to Love and Live to receive and to give~ 
Feeling Blessed that no matter what transpires in the “appearance” that my ToDo and my ToBe list never changes~
The tree outside of our front door is budding so beautifully and just exuding Life’s Loving re-emergence in the sweet cyclical dance of creation~
The morning birdsong awakens my heart to the deeper knowing that all is exactly as it should be as we float gently through breath in each precious moment~
This exquisite Grand Design has no requirement and needs no resume of deeds done yesterday~
It simply and beautifully unfolds its wings and flies into the skies of opportunity~ 
So many opportunities to Love, to give myself completely away to Its path of peace, its guiding force which turns the great wheel of life so very perfectly, with or without my permission or participation~
The birds and the trees do not carry their yesterday’s into their today’s and dwell not in “should haves” and “could haves”~
They simply and quietly await Love’s profound and perfect impulse to Open more and more to the Love that IS~
To take wing and soar in celebration, singing sweet songs of nature’s consummate and meticulous marvel of symphonic triumph~
Born out of the silence which contains all sound and returning to that container of quietude,
I await the instructions always given when mind and heart are resting in the lap of Love~
The mission Never Changes, though the manifestation constantly shifts~ 
Always knowing that there will be innumerable opportunities to Love Once Again,
My self, My Beautiful Human Family and all of Creation~

Ahhhhhh~~ Good Morning World~ Good Morning Beloved Life~Good Morning Beloveds~

Life Is a Verb~~

Image

Life happened on the day my first child was born
and on the day when my sweet child died~

It happened as I was wrapped in my lover’s arms
and again when she left and I cried~

Life happened one morning while riding my bike,
one evening while sipping some tea~

It happened when I was changing a diaper
when I looked in your eyes and saw me~

Life happened one day while washing the dishes
and once again sitting next to the river~

It happens when I feel selfishly alone
and when I am *seen* as a giver~

Life happens when I feel locked in a prison
and when my soul seems to break free~

By chance it keeps happening despite what *I* do,
so I think that I’ll just let it be~

Duality’s Dance~

Image

The “I” of the hurricane, the “center” of chaos, the “silence” in the noise exist Only by virtue of their direct counterparts. Equally valuable and both completely void without their dance partner.
One can dance alone in the void and be pleased by passing “states”, yet pain is pleasure’s partner, dancing perfectly…..at peace… In Madness~

Today I Am Whole~

I have tried to be all things Good and Holy~
A good Father, Brother, Friend and Mate~
I have fallen short of these goals more that I wanted to, more than I intended to~
I have chased the “feeling” of joy and bliss, peace and contentment in absolutely Every way that I could think of~
I have sought escape from fear and pain in many, many ways~
I have consumed every substance, read every book, changed my diet, done every meditation and yoga known to man in an attempt to rise above the illusion, to stop the mind, the senses and the sadness… to no avail~
I have reached the heights of nirvanic ecstasy and worn the chains of addiction, alcoholism, self hatred, spirituality, knowledge, wisdom and enlightenment ~
Today, This Moment, I know that I am None of these things and acts~
Today, This Moment, I know that I am All of these things and acts~
I am, as you are, All things Human and All things Divine~
Today I can greet the rising sun and know that I know nothing~
Today I can rest here~
Today I am whole~

Exquisite Notes~

Image

It seems like only One note plays, yet manifests in many ways~

It feels like there is One true *Seeing* through the eyes of many beings~

It looks like separate paths are tread, yet all converge as One instead~

It is as if we can’t go wrong, exquisite notes in One Grand Song~

Journey Ends~

The apex of this grand mortal monotony,
a seeker finds only vain and mute ignorance~
Laughs at life’s seeming goals of naught,
but seeks still, for nothing’s eternal peace~
Dancing within destiny’s proud birthright,
knowing only unworthiness and shame~
Builds and burns bridges of empty chance,
trods wearily towards death’s imminent promise~
Fruitless, his wanderings and seeming discoveries here
upon this plane of pale and cold mortality~
Chance rules the question’s burning heart~
Only Now he finds the crack of truth within~ 
Driven by a hundred lifetimes of grief,
only Now he knows that painful joy
of having lived and loved and lied again~
In that deafening moment of nothingness,
the journey ends where it began~~

Mirroring~

I cannot be better than you,
you cannot be worse than me 
separation dies and we are free~

Beautiful child~ Perfect Being,
Let me share what I am seeing~

Mirroring Spirit’s sacred song,
above the field of right and wrong~
Inseparable, our hearts as one,
sharing breath and sacred Sun~

The choice is ours, transcend perception,
Owning you as my reflection~

Layers of pale perception pealed,
the view of  “you” and a “me” is healed~

Spinning cells are merged in motion,
droplets in the same vast ocean~

Barriers broken, borders gone,
our simple souls sing one grand song~

Symphonic triumph as notes get clearer,
Honoring you as my own mirror~
