Winds of Change

Softly I whisper
gently I swirl
storms full of power
on the winds of change.

I stir your inner ocean
causing waves to brake
then sail you across the sea
to horizons beyond your view.

I bring the clouds of rain
to wash anew
soft breezes follow
filled with perfume.

I rustle your treetops
caress your fields of grain
I sing you to slumber
and stir you awake again.

These winds of change
offer a bright display
of what your life can be
instead of yesterdays.

On the winds of change
we all have choice
to open and receive
these gifts of grace.

Softly I whisper
gently I swirl
storms full of power
on the winds of change.

Softly I whisper
softly, gently
softly I whisper . . .
Change.

I AM

I AM the mother who holds you close.
I am the father who guides you.
I am the sister who giggles with you.
I am the brother who protects you.

I AM the child you rock in your arms.
I am the puppy that nips at your heels
I am the neighbor that lives next door.
I am the waitress in the restaurant

I AM the sun that warms you.
I am the dark of night.
I am the moon that phases through your life.
I am the stars that twinkle overhead.

I AM the trees that sway in the wind.
I am the flowers that bloom at your feet.
I am the stone you skip across the sea.
I am the rainbow traversing your sky.

I am the words you speak
I am the songs you sing
I am the pictures you paint
I am al of creation.

I AM All-That-Is
I am present in everything
I am present in everyone
I AM you
together
We are All-That-Is.

Chalice of Love

I offer love to you
from the chalice of the heart
doesn’t matter who you are
man or woman, rich or poor
black or white, young or old
I offer this chalice of love to you.

My heart spills over
with the joy of life
and fills the chalice
with wine so rich
join me in sipping
from this cup
getting drunk
on the ecstasies of love.

It’s the great mystery
how love heals all
but it’s true
I tell you now
with a drop of love
wounds can mend
with understanding
wars can end.

Accept this gift
graciously given
there’s no payment
this cup is free
all that I ask of you
is to receive it
and when you’re ready
please pass it on.

Pass this cup of sweet, sweet wine
from your hand to another
as we all drink from this chalice of love
One people, One heart.

The Way of Love

On days like this I need you near me
On days like this I need your help
I ask for courage. I ask for strength
I ask you to walk beside me hand in hand.

Amidst my angst, I need a friend
Amidst my turmoil I need peace
Chaos surrounds me. I’ve lost my way.
I ask you to walk beside me hand in hand.

In times like these I need a partner.
In times like this I need support.
My vision is clouded. I need clarity.
I ask you to walk beside me hand in hand.

To show me the way of love, the way of trust,
the way of acceptance with compassion.
Show me the way of grace.
Show me the way.

With you beside me my view expands
With you beside me I see what’s real
I sink into my heart
and always live from love.

When you walk beside me hand in hand
I know the way of love, I live in trust,
I live in acceptance with compassion,
I know the way of grace.
I know the way.

When you walk beside me hand in hand
I know the way of Love,
I know 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.

Sweet Surrender

Someone’s calling from your heart
with a voice that’s soft and sweet
filled with love songs from your Soul
ever calling, calling from your heart.

Love light’s burning, shining from your heart
an eternal flame clear and bright
it’s time to open fully to your soul
in sweet surrender, surrender to your heart.

Passion’s flowing from deep within
streaming out in rivers of Love
Can you surrender to your heart?
Can you surrender, surrender to Joy?

I surrender to my heart,
sweet surrender to my heart
Sweet, sweet, sweet surrender.

Stardust

I awoke remembering myself as stardust
a sprinkle of joyous light
shimmering a path of light all around me.
in the midst of a rich dark sky.

I awoke remembering myself as stardust
free of dimensional bounds
in a playground spread across eons of time
roaming in childlike delight.

I awoke remembering myself as stardust
when I first arrived on this earth
choosing this form to create and expand
all I aspire to be.

I awoke remembering myself as stardust
to experience a myriad of things
then tossing the cloak of forgetfulness
before it could extinguish my light.

I awoke Knowing my Self as stardust
that had gathered into a Star
as a master creator of magnificent life
blazing radiant trails of Love.

I awoke Knowing my Self as stardust
playing in the here and now
I awoke Knowing my Self as stardust
in joyous physical form.

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.

Walk Gently

Walk gently thru this lifetime
Walk gently but live full.
I speak to you softly
I speak to you firm.
Walk gently through this lifetime
Walk gently but live full.

No more feet of thunder
nor tongues of despair.
I speak to you softly
I speak to you firm.
No more feet of thunder
nor tongues of despair.

Put aside your judgment
find a middle path.
I speak to you softly
I speak to your firm.
Put aside your judgment
find a middle path.

As children of the rainbow
our hearts beat as one.
I speak to you softly.
I speak to your firm.
As children of the rainbow
our hearts beat as one.

Learn the ways of wisdom.
Trust the sacred way,
I speak to you softly.
I speak to you firm.
Learn the ways of wisdom
Trust the sacred way.

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.
