Relax into Peace

We run hither and thither
looking for peace
we rearrange our lives
we seek spirituality
we hide from the world
all in search of peace

But peace
is always present
deep within
the core of our heart
unable to be dislodged
awaiting our awareness

Take a moment
take a deep breath
and relax into peace
allowing everything
to settle into
its own perfection.

Savoring Sweet Contentment

I awoke from
a dreamless sleep
cushioned on
a cloud of peace
in the silence
in the stillness
of sweet contentment

When the mind
began to search
for something more
I heard my Soul whisper . . .

Relax dear mind
simply relax
and savor this
sweet contentment

How is it that you
do not consider
this enough?

How is it that you
continually create
all the folderol
in a constant search
for the peace
and sweet contentment
that is always present
within the stillness
of this moment?

For it is from within
this sweet contentment
that you realize
your Self
as more than enough
and new potentials
effortlessly
reveal themselves
with ease and grace.

Sweet Contentment of Life

Feeling the sweet
contentment of life
in knowing
that everything
I need and desire
effortlessly
comes to me

Each new moment
presenting itself
free of the old
limited human
expectations
placed upon
people, places
and things

Free of the need
to change things
or manipulate energies
because I know
life is constantly
unfolding
fresh and new.

Resting in the Void

Rest in the Void
in the space-in-between
betwixt transitions
between what was
and what is yet to come

The “old” has no place
to land anymore
it will dissolve
of its own accord
unless you continue
giving it your attention

Rest assured
be at peace
your Soul awaits
divine timing
until you are
ready and prepared
to take the next step
forward into the new.

Sweetness of Contentment

The sweetness of contentment
lies in the sweetness
of this moment

free of the projections of the mind
in a quest for visions
of future success

free of the wanderings of the mind
searching the past
in fear of failure

Can you trust
the orchestrations
of your soul

to provide you
with the sweetness
of contentment

in this moment
and every moment
throughout eternity?

Secret of Life

The primordial
secret of life
is the joy of existence
once realized
everything else
becomes
superfluous.

Joy of the Soul

Doing
for the sake of
purpose
accomplishment
or success
is the goal
of the human mind.

Doing
for the sake of
experience
feeling
or expressing
is the passion
of the Soul.

The Soul
is as
joyful
and passionate
with inaction
as it is with
taking action.

The Soul needs
no acknowledgment
because
its sustenance
is in the pure joy
of experiencing life
with all its subtle nuances
neither more
or less
important
than another.

To the Soul
every experience
and expression
of life
is sublime joy.

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.

Allowing the Soul to Lead


Tears of joy flow
with the passion and realization
of living as I have always
intended for this lifetime

It matters not if it is understood by others
it matters not if it is judged by others
it matters not if others are unaware
of who I Am or what I Am doing

For I AM beyond the mind’s capacity
to explain or understand
and it is my Soul
that validates my way of being

It is my Soul that leads the way
enlivened with the joy and contentment
of experiencing life
while in this physical body.
