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

MY GOD   Leave a comment

I DID NOT MISS YOU TODAY.

UP AT 4 AM AGAIN.

LISTENING INTENTLY FOR THAT BEAUTIFUL VOICE.

NO LONGER LOST,

WITHIN THOSE HARSH JUDGING WALLS,

OF RELIGION.

IT IS BACK BEHIND ME,

LIKE A DISTANT CLANGING NOISE.

NOW,

I AM FREE.

FREE TO KNOW YOU.

TO REALLY KNOW YOU.

YOUR WAY.

NO RULES,

NO LAWS,

NO HARSH JUDGEMENTS

FROM THOSE THAT

PRETEND TO KNOW YOU.

BUILDING  SITTERS!

THANK YOU

FOR LETTING ME JUMP OUT OF THAT WINDOW.

I LOVE YOU,

 MY GOD,

 I LOVE YOU

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.

OF THE ONE

 

LOVE

A LIST OF DEMANDS

 

LOVE

WITH US,

GOD IN US

 

LOVE

IS NOT

MANIPULATION

AND CONTROL

 

LOVE IS

SEEING

SO FAR BEYOND

YOUR BULLSHIT

THAT I SEE

YOU

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………..

I AM ANNIHILATED   Leave a comment

Love is such
a strange power.
It stands alone.
 
Like the snow
on the mountain top
sends water to the ocean,
I will continue
to love.
 
I don’t need
anything back.
 
Love is like that.
Misunderstood.
 
Labels and blame
are only
the panic
of a perceived
reality.
 
They can never
stop or control
love.
 
Love from me is like rain.
It is coming to you
no matter what.
 
Labels and blame.
Hate is only
the panic
of being
out of control.
 
Out of control.
Cool!
Know this.
But leave the panic behind.
You are ok.
 
Surrender.
You don’t
need the death
of being right.
 
Know
that you
are helpless.
 
Rest
 
No need
to panic.
 
I love you.
 
I always will.
 
No matter what.

WHAT IS GOD?   Leave a comment

I have the answer,
but you won’t like it.
The truth is just that way.
 
Before I tell you,
know this.
Every religion,
EVERY ONE,
was started by someone
who knew someone,
who walked with God.
 
Did you get that?
 
And add this to that.
Every religion,
all of them,
are perfectly contrary
to the heart and soul
of the one they claim to follow.
 
Yes,
even your religion.
 
So,
what is God?????
 
My friend,
take a seat.
 
God is not your personified deity.
God cannot be dragged through our mud.
That essence that we fearfully cry out to,
is so much more than your little box will allow.
But it is ok.
Just take the dive.
Trust.
 
So,
what is God?????
 
God is,
what is!
 
So,
my friends,
I say to you…..
 
God is what is,
Love God.

GOD SPEAKS   Leave a comment

Somewhere,

within silence

and all the noise that clutters your mind,

I AM speaking.

Whether you are sitting

in the silence of perfection

at the top of the Himalayas,

or on a kitchen floor

overwhelmed in tears,

surrounded by the noise

and confusion

of  just plain old life,

I am speaking to you.

Don’t think that my words

are only for the religious,

or too deep to understand.

My words are not

to be hidden in a book or a building.

They are as the wind,

simply moving about

directed to all life,

all living.

YOU can understand them.

They are translated

in perfect honor and respect

of who YOU are in this very moment.

Words perfectly tailored

to communicate with your soul

in this very moment.

There is no need

for a priest

or a great teacher.

You need only take a moment

and listen.

Just get very quiet,

 and listen.

I will do the rest.

I know you.

I know you better

than you could ever know yourself

at this stage of your existence.

So take just a moment.

This moment.

And listen.

Hear my words

spoken only for you.

Just listen.

I am speaking.

I love you.

 

Stillness, Silence, Here and Now   Leave a comment

 

Sit in silence.
You can sit anywhere you like.
You don’t have to sit with me.
The silence near me
isn’t any better
than the silence over there
or anywhere else
for that matter.
Sit where you want.
 
 
 
Are you paying attention
to the wind?
Watch it
in relationship
to your own level of depth.
It is like a moving secret
that carries with it
an intimacy with the infinite.
Love brings with it this sweet
caress.
 
 
The toy
is sitting still
in the corner of the room.
It is not demanding attention
yet the child
is compelled to look at it.
The toy
does not expect a decision
but the child considers.
Shall we play?
 
 
 
 
At the parade,
for only a moment,
the veil
slipped off the face
of the young princess.
As others scurried away,
a lonely beggar gazed in awe.
Then he approached the guard
offering his head.
 
 
 
No matter how thick
the wall is,
if we consider diligently
we can usually find a door
or a gate.
It is always there.
Or perhaps
you could go another way.
 
 
 
 
The end of a war
rarely means peace.
The brutal manipulation
just seems to be finished
and someone
gets their way.
 

 

You are, You are not   Leave a comment

Give up,
you are more
than the simplicity
that you have entangled
yourself in.
If I kiss you,
will you open
your eyes?
I only want you
to see.
How happy
you will be
to know
that all this,
all of it,
is only
an illusion.
You are
so much
more than that.
