Beyond myself…

I go beyond myself
to a place
I can’t conceive,
a spiritual moment
a presence
I believe,
beyond borders,
on the other side of time,
I feel
a rhythm
a movement
that’s sublime…
where grace exists
and love is all I know,
it’s a wonder
where joy overflows,
and I can’t explain
how I came
to reside in peace,
it’s a location where
doubt is being released…
And the knowing
is built into my bones
a place
I can’t forget,
a depiction
of home…

Tommy…

In South Africa we have Parking Attendants, some call them car guards.
They are gentle men who are not able to find traditional jobs
for one reason or another, so they help with parking, carrying shopping
and keeping our cars safe.
This is Tommy, he is an amputee and he is at his station everyday
no matter the weather and he is always smiling and waving…
He is definitely a bright face on an overcast day…

walk the way of dreamers..

“Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.”
― Rumi, Masnavi i Man’avi, the spiritual couplets of Maula

Walk the way of dreamers,
loiter with the brave,
carve your heart
on fallen trees
notice each detail…

Dance with lovers,
sing along with birds,
breathe the air of seekers,
listen to the unheard…

Hold hands
with the forgotten
befriend those
who are alone,
believe in miracles,
dabble in the unknown…

Be curious about creation,
celebrate life,
weep with those in sorrow
remind them that
they’re divine…

Have gratitude parties
in gatherings of grace
bathe in an abundance,
that fear cannot erase…

Live like it’s heaven on Earth…

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

The soft winds blow me
back to surrender,
unraveling grief
this sweet November.

on heavy footsteps
I break dry earth
I’m falling
falling..

into a gentle return!

We are the
incandescence of eternal love
a manifestation
of what is spoken of..

by the God of our understanding and celestial beings,
as endless euphonies
of what is unseen…

We came to earth
to complete a task,
to blossom in love,
to learn contrast..

Never forgetting our eternal home,
constantly guided
never alone!

And when our days come to pass,
we’ll return again
to the sacred dance…
