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.

Temple of Love

Temple of love I sing to thee
Here I lay my head.
Temple of love I bring to thee
All I’ve ever been.

Here I sit within your womb
nurtured by your care
completely free of fear and doubt
filled with your grace.

At last I’ve gathered all of me
acceptance without bounds
cherishing the self I’ve found
in darkness and in light.

I’ve finally met my sacred Self
the one who walks in truth
honoring this noble one
in her humble form.

My inner diamond’s radiance
is bright and all aglow
emitting facets tried and true
polished and whole.

Oh sacred heart
my home of homes
beloved temple of love
I sing with you forevermore
my beloved temple of love.

Power of the Night

Power of the night, bless me
Power of the night, show me
Masters of light in the power of night,
Come dream along with me.

Angels in our sleep with stardust head to feet
reveal our true selves by lifting up the veils
exposing what’s been hid underneath the lids
our treasures and jewels now aglitter in the light.

Our dreams are here to teach things beyond our reach
opening the doors to which we never had the keys
night visions tried and true will carry us through
stirring our passions for morning’s debut.

As masters of the Light, in the power of the night
weaving threads of our dreams into our present day lives
the wisdom of the night in the dawning light
bequeaths our lives with the sheen of gold.

Power of the night, bless me
Power of the night, show me
Masters of light in the power of night
Come dream along with me.

Come dream along with me
In the power of the night.
