Dream

I dream of running free
wild beneath an open sky
Wind in hair
rain on skin
Of light
lying flesh to earth
beneath trees
of grass and leaves

I dream of being alive
to fill life completely
Of spirit unleashed
to move and breathe
Of being love
unworded
unbound

I dream of a spring
crystal waters
flowing from the core
of my beginning
and see how i have polluted it
such beauty,
all the light distorted

I pray that the great Love
will take me, not let me go.
Make me strong enough
to honour the crystal waters
Flow free
Blessing reality
Uncorrupted, awake
Light on Light.

Only Reflections

When I was a child,
feeling the goodness
in me,
in you,
in all things,
I looked to you to confirm it

I poured all my love
into people who were
Incredibly lost. People
who never felt deeply
all hearts share a truth.

People hurt others
when they are hurting
They don’t understand
who they are.
People make boxes
then sit in them,
shouting loudly.

They are really afraid
of light. And sometimes
do terrible things.

You taught me
to be ashamed.
You said goodness
is something out there
something that we are not.
This is what you had learnt.
You said you know
that Love is a lie.

You confused me so much.
It’s okay. I accept you.
There is nothing to forgive
Everyone is doing their best

You made me look
at being a person.
Thank you. It broke me
again and again.
But something is still here.

When we get broken
it makes an opening, for light.
I understand now
how terribly lonely you must be.

It’s time to change direction
and pour all our love into truth,
I will not be ashamed
if it doesn’t come back.

There is no return of light –
only reflections.

When I give my love to truth
it’s flowing in to you, too.
You are truth.
You don’t need to know about it

One day, we will all be free.

Dream Costumes

The same love is everywhere, all pervading, all around. The same love comes with many different faces, flowing through ‘friends’, ‘strangers’ or ‘enemies’, all in apparent disguise; all guiding the way, all pointing to the same place. The same generous wisdom and truth playing in many different dream costumes, in many different roles…Light can be hidden, yet is always available… even in the darkest places… We’ve all been there, it is all us…

The human face tells the story… yet the story dissolves and becomes transparent… the speaker and the listener become merged, timelessly suspended as the story unfolds…. and every story becomes the same story, an unbroken seeing…. behind, before, around, within… All is held and embraced by the deeper intelligence beyond…

Becoming Unknown

You broke me open a thousand times
and each time healed me
until the pain of becoming tender
was sweet as nectar.

You sent your breath like a hot desert wind
into my deepest unknown
and I entered into your cave.

You walked with me in my sleeping
and in my waking laughed at my surprise.

I am becoming softer
I am becoming stronger.

I am opening like a gentle river
Ancient flowing – Spirit moving
I breathe in – I breathe out
Ever drawing closer.

The journey continues
I a child among mysteries
Becoming unknown.

Heart beating to the rhythm of every cell
I am a living being.

You can move through me
I yield like clouds
but in my heart is a lion’s roar.
