The universe is calling

The universe is calling
do you recognise its persistent
knocking at the door?

What is needed?
Harmony in
heart, spirit, nature
body, speech, mind.
With these aligned
listen!
Yield ego to the space
let ego dissolve
in its warm embrace.

Listen!
The universe is calling 
do you recognise its persistent
knocking at the door?

Walk with me

Walk with me
just walk
feel your feet on the ground
the air playing on your skin.

Notice
notice what is around you
and within you.
Notice the joy, beauty and presence
all around
and within.

Notice
rising thoughts and feelings
as clouds passing across the sky
not blemishing or disrupting
the sky
not affecting it in any way.

Walk with me
just walk
away from ego-driven
self-centred behaviour
towards a more open and
receptive way of being.
Walk with me
just walk.

You feel as if your heart is breaking?

You feel as if your heart is breaking?
Then come seek refuge.

I am not here to hold your hand
or offer soothing platitudes.
I offer a space
so vast and free
we can dive in
losing ourselves and
finding our real selves.

The world offers heartbreak and
suffering at every turn.
We cannot be without it
until we choose
to dive into space
so vast and free
we can loosen the shackles of
a mortal life
and become immortal.

I will not clean your wound
or provide a plaster.
I will not promise to heal
your broken heart or fix you.
I offer a space
so vast and free
you will forget you have a wound
forget your broken heart
and dance in immortality.

The universe has other plans

Driving home with a heavy heart
the universe has other plans.
The vast arching sky above me
creates a magnificent, fluid painting
changing
undulating.

A near-full moon vibrates
with an extra aura
calling my attention
riding a soft bed of candyfloss
pale blues and pinks.
I could not ignore its pleading
for me to leave my cares and notice.

Behind me
the sunset pulls at my attention
begging me to stop
and take in its
breath-taking beauty
a changing scene of
oranges, pinks and reds
pulsing and dancing
a choreographed display
no artist could accurately describe.

When we get burdened by
the cares of the world
the universe invites us to notice
an indescribable vastness
that sweeps the cares away.

Like-hearted

A closer connection than
like-minded.
Inextricably linked
we cannot be separated.
Woven from the same cloth
formed from the same clay
infused with one breath
feeling one feeling
knowing one knowing.
Recognising the connection
of Oneness,
being of one heart.

The Buddha's Garden

The Buddha’s garden
is scented with
honeysuckle and sweet peas
where delighted bees congregate.

The Buddha’s garden
is a welcoming place
with a smiling nun as gatekeeper.

The Buddha’s garden
has music sung by unseen voices
and accompanied by birds.

The Buddha’s garden
has wind playing lullabies
through the leaves
making everything dance.

The Buddha’s garden
has poppy petals
strewn on the path
softening our footsteps.

The Buddha’s garden
is alive with
beauty and
wonder and
mystery.

Everything is connected

A storm has been sent
to clear the dead wood
to create space for a
fresh and appropriate emerging.
Great heart wishes
to be satisfied
shaking everything up
to fall into a new formation.

Everything we think
feel
say
do
creates a ripple of energy
undulating into the universe.
How will you shape yours?
Will they be clean and clear
or mean and muddy?

Everything is connected.
