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.

ENTER THE WIND   Leave a comment

Sohbet,
 the act of  empty listening.
Only just leaning or reaching.
Paying perfect attention in
such a gentle manner.
Yielded, vulnerability.
Non-existent
as only dust
or molecules
blowing away
in the wind.
