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.

Soul’s Passion

Courage is the Soul’s passion
to be fully present
with the unknown

For it is in the unknown
that all potentials await
rather than continuing
to repeat that which
has already been lived.

Eternity of Love

I etch the words
I AM LOVE
into the grains
of glistening sand
where the tide
has gone out
with sea gulls
soaring overhead
and nary a human
has walked.

Throughout the day
I feel the essence
of this Love
absorbed
into the sea
spreading across
the distant shores
and my heart
busts forth
with passion.

There are those
who may think
that Love
is transient
but my heart knows
that Love
is eternal
continually spread
across distant shores
increasing my
own hearts passion.

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.

Expansion of your GodSelf

 

The purpose of this earth experience
has always been to expand your GodSelf
with the joy of life at the root of your experience.

You are meant to create the reality you choose
rather than scuffling around
in other’s realities that were never yours.

Thus, follow your passion
go wherever your heart calls
and create anew for the pure joy of it.

Whispers of your Heart

Listen, Listen, Oh Listen
Listen to the whispers of your heart
telling you the story of your life
coming into form.

What stories it may tell
of love and joy
yet to be explored
in the gardens
of our long lost fairytales
residing in our hearts.

What songs they may sing
of longings
not to be ignored
along this journey
of heaven on earth
revealing all that’s ours.

Our heart knows
the way to fulfillment
of passions hidden deep
and maps the journey
of life’s greatest joys
with ever flowing ease.

Our hopes and dreams
await patiently
look inside you’ll find
the womb of creation within us
ready to give birth.

Wherever we are
our heart’s there too
so take a breath and see
solutions and answers
to all our woes
as worry fades away.

Our heart heals the wounds
from all the past
bathing us in love
to offer new vision
and clear the path
blessing us with grace.

So open your heart
let your love flow free
out into the world
with open hearts
we can all rejoice
and live our dreams together.

Listen, Listen, Oh Listen
Listen to the whispers of your heart.

True Compassion

Compassion
does not require me
to join you in your suffering.

Otherwise
there would be nothing
but suffering in this world.

Compassion is
the ability to see the passion
of love and joy and say
here, this is the way home.

Allowing the Soul to Lead the Way


Tears of joy flow
with the passion and realization
that I am doing and 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 living an expanded reality
while living in a physical body.

BEing In Love

Do you remember how you felt
when you were first “in love”?

Happy… giddy… passionate
skipping through the day…
never wanting to be apart…
lifting each other UP…
knowing you can fly.

Be present with this feeling
within your Self
in every moment
totally in LOVE with YOU!!!

Seed of Passion

If you pull up a plant
by the roots,
the plant dies.

But if you very gently
push the soil away
until you discover the roots . . .

what you will find
is the seed of passion
that birthed the plant
the ardor for life
the vigor to thrive
the joy to blossom
the zeal to bear fruit.

Wisdom
lies in the seed
of the plant
and in the heart
of the child within.

Be gentle
with the seed
for therein lies your
ardor for life
vigor to thrive
joy to blossom
and zeal to bear fruit.
