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.

LESS AGAIN- I must decrease   Leave a comment

Interaction

rarely goes beyond noise.

When you look at me,

you only see a reflection of you,

at least at first,

till you realize you can’t see me at all.

Stillness doesn’t belong.

Silence will only mean surrender.

Truth,

only means vulnerability

when you see it from here.

I am decreasing,

becoming less,

till you can’t see me at all.

And,

it is quite ok.

I don’t need to be seen.

I don’t need to be heard.

 I don’t need at all.

Love,

is ok,

just sitting,

and waiting

quietly.

BLAME GOD!!!!!!!   Leave a comment

When this life hurts,

I mean when it really, really hurts,

know that you are where you are,

by His hand.

By His love,

His amazing love,

and by His grace,

His amazing grace,

He has allowed you to be ,

right in the very center

of that oh so painful situation.

His gorgeous knowing eyes,

smile lovingly at you

through each painful moment.

You see,

you’re on a path.

That path is taking you home.

Every time you feel pain,

it is just you,

resisting the path.

It is just you,

resisting His love,

His grace.

We are not wrestling with flesh and blood,

in these tough situations.

Don’t blame man.

Blame God,

or rather,

blame yourself

or…………..

don’t blame at all.

Just relax.

Trust!

Go with the flow.

It will be ok.

He loves you,

so stop resisting.

Learn the lesson

of surrender

and acceptance,

and move on.

Its ok.

You are loved.

Just trust.

Don’t blame.

Just let go, and enjoy the ride.

The sooner you let go

and stop trying to control everything,

the sooner it will all be over.

You are the one

causing your pain.

So…………

STOP!!!!!!!!!

TRUST IS THE TREASURE!!!!!

Find it.

LOOKING FOR GOD??????   Leave a comment

JUST WHAT ARE YOU REALLY LOOKING FOR?

GOD?

SO MANY BOOKS,

SO MANY WEBSITES,

SO MANY EMPTY OPINIONS,

LIKE RABBIT TRAILS THROUGH  AN EMPTY DESERT.

TIME,

IS TOSSED AWAY,

AS YOU LOOK EVERYWHERE,

THAT IS EASY.

ARE YOU READY?

READY TO FIND GOD?

READY TO MEET HIM???????

I CAN TELL YOU HOW.

STOP!

STOP LOOKING!

STOP SEEKING!

STOP PACKING  AROUND YOUR GUILT,

AND EXCUSES.

YOU HAVE BEEN SHIRKING RESPONSIBILITY.

YOU HAVE BEEN SKIRTING TRUTH,

AVOIDING YOUR OWN ACCOUNTABILITY.

YOU KNOW THAT ALL THAT

RUNNING AROUND,

SEEKING AROUND

JUST DOESN’T GET IT DONE.

CHASING THE NEXT NEW TEACHING,

OR THAT ANCIENT TEACHING,

JUST LEAVES YOU DANGLING

RIGHT WHERE YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN.

SO,

MY LITTLE ONE,

PLEASE, PLEASE,

JUST STOP.

JUST STOP LOOKING…………….

If you really want to find God,

stop looking for Him.

and start looking for yourself.

you know,

your self.

that little one,

hidden

behind so many walls.

Hidden

behind so many defenses.

That vulnerable little angel.

That precious beauty.

That one you barely remember.

You, yes, you.

So protected that you can’t

remember who you are………….

Just stop.

Take the time.

Do the work.

When you break through all YOUR walls,

and knock down all your defenses,

you will really find

that happy little you,

and God.

You see,

 He is in there too,

with you,

just waiting for you to lay down the fear,

and open the door.

The love you missed.

The love you’ve always looked for is only within.

So just give up the search.

You already are where you need to be.

Look within.

Find you.

The kingdom of God

is within.

Love you………

GOD IS NOT   Leave a comment

GOD IS NOT…………….

LIKE THE JOYS OF THIS WORLD

GOD IS NOT…………….

LIKE THE TEMPORARY, EMPTY HAPPINESS WE FIND IN OUR INTERACTIONS

GOD IS NOT…………….

HARSH, CONDEMNING, OR DEMANDING

GOD IS NOT…………….

A LIAR

GOD IS NOT…………….

A LOVE THAT COMES AND GOES

GOD IS NOT…………….

WAITING FOR YOU TO SCREW UP

OR EVEN GET IT RIGHT

GOD IS NOT…………….

LIKE A GROWN UP

GOD IS NOT……………..

LIKE RELIGION OR IT’S LEADERS

GOD IS NOT…………….

OR EVER WILL BE……….

FALLING OUT OF LOVE

WITH HIS CREATION

THE CHILDREN OF GOD   Leave a comment

Where

are the children of God?

 

Who

are they?

 

I love you.

Each of you.

 

Each,

so beautiful

and perfect

in my eyes.

 

My love

is beyond

your understanding.

 

My grace,

my beautiful grace,

is greater than your perception of guilt

will let you accept.

 

My forgiveness,

is only a mask,

over my love,

to help you understand.

 

You know not,

what you do.

 

You know not,

who you are.

 

And you do not, yet,

know me.

Not as you should,

or will.

 

I love you so very much,

my beautiful,

beautiful babies.

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………..
