GOD’S LOVE   Leave a comment

Sometimes

God’s love

is like the fire

that refines

the gold.

Not always,

A pretty picture

Love

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.

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

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……………

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

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 PATH TO GOD   Leave a comment

Looking for God?

Just how difficult do you

expect that seeking to be?

Perhaps,

you could settle

for religion.

The path to God

is too easy.

Just lay down your walls.

Just give up your fight,

and your rights.

Give up your words,

and noise,

and idle chatter.

Just stop!

You see,

He isn’t in a building,

or in your religious

rules,

walls,

or laws.

The kingdom of God,

the reign of God,

the essence of God,

is within

you.

So,

Give up the fight.

Just get quiet.

Be still,

and know that I AM God.

In the stillness within,

is where He is found.

Stillness,

Silence,

Peace………

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………..
