GOD’S LOVE   Leave a comment

Sometimes

God’s love

is like the fire

that refines

the gold.

Not always,

A pretty picture

Love

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.

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……………

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……….

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.

DON’T BE AFRAID   Leave a comment

You don’t have to any more,
I’ve taken care of everything.
So,
really,
don’t be afraid.
 
It’s only me,
and I love you.
 
I am the One you whisper to.
 
When you meditate,
I am your focus,
your center.
 
When you pray,
I am the One who hears.
And I always hear,
everything.
Everything!
And I still love you.
 
No matter what,
there is NOTHING to fear.
I have an eye on everything.
It is just not what you think.
You are just not what you think
 
Nothing can hurt you,
bulletproof.
Remember that word,
bulletproof.
 
So TRUST,
just trust.
 
Pray!
Get silent.
I am your center,
your silence.
You CAN trust Me,
I love you.
 

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?????
