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.

HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD’S WILL??????   Leave a comment

I find it strange

how so many people

are ready to clue me in,

on the “will” of God.

 

Now, if everyone knows the “will” of God,

as they claim to,

then why do opinions vary so much??????

 

I’ve never seen anything

so silly.

 

Somehow people think that God,

the Creator of the universe,

must bend or conform to their perceptions,

to their rules.

 

Again,

how silly.

 

Want to know the will of God??????

 

Relax,

just sit back and watch.

 

It is unfolding right before your eyes.

 

In each life,

the pendulum swings both ways,

till the perfect center is found.

 

He knows what each of us need,

to take off the rough edges

and things contrary.

 

He will see that each one,

finds our way home.

 

He loves us that much.

 

Be careful around those who claim to know His will……………

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

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.
