I Am not my Story

I am not my old story
a story that was simply
my perception
in that particular
moment in time.

By approaching life
from a different perspective
the old story melts away
and I create a new story
in a new reality
that serves me in this moment.

And with each new
expanded perspective
my story changes
freeing me to experience
a more loving
and joyous life.

Step off the Pedestal

Step off the pedestal into the mystery of life
beyond the perceptions of the human mind
step off the pedestal into the passages of your heart.

Step into the grotto of love, peace and joy,
residing within the depth of your heart
birth all your dreams in your garden of eden
live and create from the power of your truth.

Step into the Cosmos, the stream of creation
live in abundance, unlimited and free
partner with spirit out in the world
exploring all the wonders and magnificence of life.

Step off the pedestal into the mystery of life
into a new reality of expanded consciousness.
Step off the pedestal into the only thing that’s real
Step off the pedestal . . . into Love.

Illusions

Illusions,
oh those illusions

Fear in its many forms
threatens our safety
harbors our anger
and alters our minds

Doubt stops us in our tracks
blankets our brilliance
veils our beauty
and stifles creation

Guilt overtakes us
fills us with sorrow
suffers us wounds
and closes our hearts.

Worry bleeds us dry
limits our options
smolders our passion
and steals our joy.

Illusions, oh those illusions
Why do we believe them?
Suffering pain
Closing our hearts
Giving up joy

Where lies our freedom
from all these illusions?

By opening our hearts
to find our wisdom and joy
Only then can we see clearly
through the illusions.

Illusions, silly illusions
Illusions, they’re simply illusions.

Reborn by the Sea


Gently she beckons, come unto me
Lovingly she offers, step into the sea
Purify your heart with me, purify you mind,
Float in my ocean, oblivious to time.

Gently she bids me, shed all your tears
Peacefully she offers, give me all your fears.
She wraps her self around me, rocks me to her breast
Floating in her ocean I’m peaceful and at rest.

Gently she whispers, look and see what’s real
Tenderly she offers, you’ve nothing to conceal
She washes away my doubts, Caressing me with love
Floating in her ocean, I’m One with all therof.

Joyfully she laughs, I reflect your child
Gleefully she offers, Let’s dance and be wild
She skims across the waves taking hold of my hand
Dancing in her ocean, I’m free to expand.

Gently she beckoned, come unto me
Lovingly she offered step into the sea
I purified my heart with her and purified my mind.
I floated in her ocean, reborn by the sea.
Reborn by the sea.

Dancing On the Wings of Spirit

Dancing on the wings of Spirit soaring thru the sky
Dancing on the wings of Spirit, we only thought we couldn’t fly.

Flying’s not a mystery saved only for our dreams
flying’s our reality, life’s not always what it seems.
On the breath of Spirit it’s joy that lifts our wings
taking us to new heights where everything sing.

No matter where life leads us there’s nothing we can’t face
so take your broken dreams and head for open space
nothing overtakes us when we’re soaring through the sky
life looks so different when we view it from on high.

To find your place in life just tip your stretched out wings
and glide with the current to see what it brings
maybe it’s an updraft to climb ever higher
or simply a gentle breeze pleasing our desires.

So let’s dance the dance of Spirit, glide on our wings on high
live life to its fullest and remember we all fly
dancing on the wings of Spirit soaring thru the sky
dancing on the wings of Spirit, we now know we can fly.
