KISSING GOD   Leave a comment

Like a secret,

or a smile,

this, being awake.

Like walking through a different hallway.

It is full of people, but they see something else.

Somewhere else,

At another time.

I am here,

but not for your mind

or thoughts.

If you stop,

I mean really stop,

so that you get a kind of whiplash,

as the past and the future whirl away,

you just might get a glimpse of me,

actually standing in the same hallway,

smiling,

and kissing God.

THE TRUTH   Leave a comment

The truth is better. Like water seeking level, it seems to go where it will. But get ready, you might consider damage control. The truth is just like that. People get hurt. Too many expectations. It is either that, or live up to your neck in lies. Maybe NOBODY wants me as I really am. That will be ok too. The truth. What a liberator.   … Read More

I’M LOST????   Leave a comment

I’m lost,

Or so I think.

But I’m not looking to get saved.

At least not the way you mean.

There would have to be substance,

And you don’t seem to offer that.

Lost in this world.

I’m tired of words,

And not just yours.

Jesus,

My dear Jesus,

I need help.

Sometimes I can’t see beyond the walls of the Church.

Like prison walls,

I’m told what to think,

And what not to think.

Church, prison,

Prison, Church.

I’m looking for that truth,

That makes me free.

It isn’t in the building.

I spent twenty years looking.

It isn’t allowed in.

It’s somewhere outside the walls,

With Jesus.

And now I’m out here.

Tired of words.

Tired of all the noise.

Just so desperately seeking truth.

Not your version…..

The real truth.

The one I find

only in

silence……….

WORLDLY????? MIND   Leave a comment

WORLDLY MIND,

THIS MIND OF THOUGHT,

BASED ON JUST WHAT?????

YOU SEE,

YOU AND ME

WE BOUGHT A THOUGHT

BEING SOLD BY THE BRASH AND BOLD

OUR SOULS TO HOLD

THOUGHTS,

SO VERY COLD…….

ANOTHER MIND,

SO DEEP I FIND

ON THAT SOFT VELVET SHELF

OF SILENCE.

FORGET GUNS

AND GOVERNMENTS

AND YOUR SWEET VERSION OF JUSTICE…..

IT’S OK

LET IT ALL FLOAT AWAY

FIND THE TRUTH

OF THE ETERNAL SILENT MIND

AND STAY

QUIETER

QUIETER

SO VERY STILL

BE

SO VERY STILL

TRUTH AND POWER,

HIDDEN IN SO GENTLE

A SETTING.

PRECIOUS LITTLE SOUL   Leave a comment

A rose
always shares
beauty
with all.
 
Then the blossom
withers,
fades,
and loses its color.
 
But it is
the same
flower.
 
An old
bent over woman
with a strange
scent.
Where has the desire
to kiss her gone?
 
Fifty years ago
her beauty
was world-renowned.
 
Too pretty
for common eyes.
The best girls
for the
best guys.
So pretty
she was.
 
Now just look.
No,
really look.
Look in her eyes.
It is her,
still her.
Still so very
beautiful.
 
The rose,
is still
the rose.
 
See the little boy
playing.
His innocence
is perfect.
He smiles
He laughs
He plays
 
He is vulnerable
and he doesn’t
even know it.
 
He is beautiful
and free.
 
A joy,
a true joy
to only
observe him.
But…..
that was sixty
years ago.
 
Now he sits
in a smokey
card room.
 
He weighs
three hundred pounds.
He takes the money
of those less savvy
than himself.
 
Horrible,
unpleasant,
a pig.
 
But look in his eyes
No,
really look………..

ANSWERS   Leave a comment

Do you know which questions to ask?

Knowing which questions to ask,

is the key to all the answers,

to all the questions.

So,

ask these questions……..

Who am I?

Or,

What am I?

They are the same question.

Next,

What do I want?

Not,

what does my worldly image want,

but the I within.

The last question in this list,

is to ask in the midst of every interaction,

What do you want?

Just get each person to the point.

What do you want??????

 

Answers to all your questions exist.

They can be found in one place.

All answers,

to all your questions.

One place.

Only,

live in the midst of these few questions.

Just narrow down your complex image

of yourself,

to these few questions.

Just take them within.

And if someone comes along to interupt your introspection,

just ask,

What do you want?????

All of life is just this simple.

So my love…….

Who are you?

What do you want?????

YOU ARE NOT SEEN
THERE IS ONLY YOU
 
YOU ARE NOT HEARD
THERE IS ONLY YOU
 
NO EYES EXIST TO MEASURE YOU

THE PERFECT OBSERVER
 
JUST A COOL
SILENT
BREEZE
 
ONLY YOU
