Who do you think you are?

Who do you think you are?
A being full of light and love?
Or one weighed down with
yesterday’s burdens?
Believing the thoughts that come and go
the feelings, emotions, desires
all part of the package 
of being human.

Each morning on awakening
there is a choice
a brief window of opportunity
to choose being just human or
to choose being love.
A beacon for others
a ray of hope, compassion, kindness.

Who do you think you are?

A brief moment to catch
descending from being free
to being human
and all the weight
that package entails.

Choose to be free
choose to be open
choose to be love.

Who do you think you are?

No words necessary

Dear Mind
rest awhile
as I dive deep into
the vast ocean of consciousness.
“Lie there, my art”.
You are a great magician
plucking forth words, images, scenes
out of empty air
and all this can be stilled
for a while.
Rest my dear mind
there will be important work for you
Now, right now
no words are necessary
no conjuring tricks needed
no reminders of yesterday’s song
or scenes to be replayed.
Lie there, my art
rest awhile
as I dive deep into
the vast ocean of consciousness
which you cannot enter.
no words are necessary.

I throw my arms around the world

I throw my arms around the world
to embrace all beings.
I open my heart to let
all beings
for you were always here
always within me.
We are not separate
you and I 
we have always been One.

My heart is deep enough 
to contain everyone
to contain All.
Here we sit
together in Oneness
lovers of truth and beauty.
I open my arms wide enough
to embrace all.

Singing in your heart

Hear the sound of liberation
singing in your heart.
Follow that sound
without wavering.
Stay on the path
it leads you along.
The sound is leading you home
drawing you ever closer
to yourself.
Hear the sound of liberation
singing in your heart
telling you
you already are home.

What is real?

None of it is real.
This night-time vividness that slips into 
vagueness on eyes opening.
And this eyes open, senses open
walking, talking daydream.
None of it is real.

Except this present moment.
This endless, depthless, present moment
when we touch infinity
when we meet the glorious
with no past or future.
Just now
and another now
and another
vibrant, energetic.
This is real.

I will keep you safe

I am the storm that rages
the wind that blows
the rain that rains
the north star as your guide
and the cloud covering the star.
I am the boat
gently carrying you to the other shore.
I am the waves rocking the boat
the calm depth of the ocean
the fish that swim beneath
the birds that fly above.
I am the quiet stillness
on the ocean floor.
I am One, I am many
I am All.
