Expressions of Joy

Joy expresses itself in a multitude of ways

for the one who is just coming out of trauma
it can be a flicker of light amidst the darkness

for the one birthing a child
it’s a joyous burst of unconditional love

for the one walking the forest
it’s an appreciation for the beauty of nature

for the one in relationship
it’s the pleasure of sharing with another

for the artist
it’s an infinite array of color

for the musician
it’s an intricate harmony

for the poet
it’s articulated with words

for the mystic
it’s the contentment of being

for the child
it’s the glee of life itself

Joy can be quiet and sublime
Joy can be explosive and exuberant

The ultimate Joy
is when we realize
joy is innate
always present
pulsing through our blood
as the stardust
from which we’ve incarnated.

Magic of Creation

Life itself is pure magic
the sensuality of it
effortlessly draws me
into its creation
to savor and enjoy
with sheer delight.

There is nothing I need do
for my human attempts
are poor imitations
of manipulating energy
in tired old way
reproducing more
of what already exists.

The magic of creation
is the joy of expressing
with its radiance
effortlessly dancing
throughout all of life
continually creating anew.

I surrender my old ways
of attempting to create
I revel in observing
the magic of creation
with new awareness
new appreciation.

I step into its sublime beauty
and savor the deliciousness of it
I sing with the playful
etudes of creation
I dance with its infinite
new orchestrations.

Moon Within Me

There is a moon within me
that answers to She in the sky
waxing and waning
with the rhythms of her lunar sequence

Deeply She dives into the darkness
in search of the wisdom
that has been so craftily hidden
on the far side of the moon.

With each successive evening sky
ever so slowly she rotates
revealing her feminine wisdom
one juicy morsel at a time.

Until the full radiance of her face
smiles upon me with all her passion
whispering to me from high in the sky
and from deep within me, I answer.

Universal Language

Universal language is spoken
by the dancing rays of the sun
the soft rustle of the trees
the exuberant songs of the birds
and the splashing of the waves.

It has color, fragrance,
sound and sensuality
all imbued with Love and Joy.

These are the conversations
from which we can
consciously create
our very own paradise
our heaven on earth.

Each Moment, it’s own Unique Experience

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
the mind lets go of the past
and opens to infinite potentials.

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
the old stories dissolve
and the heart opens more fully.

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
the beauty of life reveals itself
in new and vibrant ways.

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
you are in the flow of grace
with all that Source has to offer.

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
you realize yourself as Divine
at one with All That Is.

Nature’s Subtle Quietness

There is a subtle quietness
on the eve of the autumn equinox
as nature takes her last inbreathe
inhaling all the abundance
and all the beauty
she has sown forth.

There is a subtle quietness
before she exhales
initiating the changing of the season
with leaves fluttering to the ground
and petals unfurling
for their last hurrah.

There is a subtle quietness
as the days get shorter
and nights get longer
calling us into
an inner embrace of silence
where all things
are quiet and at peace.

There is much to be learned
from nature’s subtle silence
between the in-breathe
and the out-breath
where all things
are transitioning
with ease and grace.

I Create my Reality

Sweet Innocence
Scent of Beauty
Wings of Freedom
This is my stance as Creator.

Without imposition
nor the chaos of transition
I am free to create
from pure Divinity.

Beyond the human mind
beyond past experience
beyond time space
beyond what’s ever been before.

I Am a universal being
expanding consciousness
with the wonderment of a child
and the heart of a human.

I Create my Reality . . .

Sweet Bliss of the Breeze

SWEET BLISS OF THE BREEZE

There are days when
our soul is calling out
to withdraw from the world
to do nothing more
than simply swing
in the sweet bliss of the breeze
savoring our earthly garden
allowing our physicality to rest
to take a deep breath
and enjoy all the abundance
that is blossoming around us
while listening to the sweet whispers
of our infinite Divinity.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
is not a faerie tale
it is the tale
of the healing of duality.

Beauty and the beast live side by side
the beast enticing her to love him
by bestowing upon her all the “things”
most women would desire.

But things do not entice her
it is the beauty of life
that makes her heart sing
as she lives side by side with the beast.

In the end,
it is the magic of her Love
that breaks the spell
and the beast is transformed.

This is the duality
that WE are living right now
beauty living side by side
with the beast of darkness.

Do not judge the beast
for the beast has been bewitched
by the enchantment
of our material world.

In the end,
it is the simplicity of our Love
that will break the spell
and the beast of darkness
shall be transformed.

Be the Love that does not judge
Be the Love that transforms
Be the Love that is creating
the New Earth.

Be Love
