Today

Good morning
somehow we are growing full
with all the silent joy
that is bubbling up like spring
Make a doorway
so it can flow free
and feed the heart
Say yes and yes and yes
to be alive
to be here
Today
this is what we have
You make a new path
with your light
Choose well
and love what you see
you leave behind a trail
Tomorrow, you see new
make new choice
You are not solid being
you, like water
free to flow
When the source begins it’s journey
to the ocean of Spirit
it does not know how it will arrive
so let go of knowing
and enjoy the way

Clearing

There is a great fire burning in my heart
i am clearing my life of what was carried for so long
Here, now, not knowing where i shall go
everyday i grow lighter and lighter
When the wind blows i am lifted on it

the spirit sings and moves like the trees
i walk among the people and see their life
i am happy when i am not a person
with a heavy load
It seems so simple
when i am empty of myself
i am full with peace and joy
Everywhere i am here, nowhere to go
the less i have,
the more i am free.

Be Perfectly Ashamed

The rain
that comes at dawn
is beautiful;
Don’t hold back
Run out beneath the open sky
and dance, dance!

Let your heart loose
Be wild and free.
Listen to the birds sing.
See their feathered breasts
tremble. So completely
they are giving.

You too can be naked
of every thing
that keeps you from
Being.

Stay awake all night if you
must. Let the longing pierce
you. Don’t run away, turn
to face it. Break open.

Feel the ecstasy rising.

The Friend said these troubles
were never intended
as ropes
that tie you to the world,
But as a ladder
that connects you
directly
to the purest source
of Love.

This is your truth,
that intimate connection.

Meet the darkness tenderly,
lose all hope;
Be perfectly ashamed. This
is when he Loves you most.
Let the Beloved touch you,
don’t hold back.

There is a deeper light;
It is coming, now.

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.

The Good Song

I have found a place
Beyond time and Space,
Oh sweet surrender…
There I ride the wind
So far deeply in
And it is good!

Oooh ooh la la la la
la la la la la la x2

You can come with me
And we can be so free,
It will be good!
We can dance and sing
With the flowers and the trees,
It will be good!

Let’s go light-ly
I’ll meet you where you are,
Don’t be shy now
I’ve already seen your heart
And it is good!

Oooh oooh la la la la la
la la la la la la… x2

So come and play with me
in the rivers to the sea,
It will be good!
We can ride the wind
So far deep within,
Oh sweet surrender…

Oooh oooh la la la la la
la la la la la la… x2

…and it is good!

Not Knowing

If you are breaking open
and there is no ground or walls,
nor person to say “Yes I am that”,
If there is no knowing nor faith
and no desire;

If you have discovered
that everything you believe in,
all that you touch, dissolves;
If nothing can be confirmed,

What do you do?

I stay still, feeling,
listening, quietly;

If the pain grows deeper – let it,
If the fear comes stronger – let it,

If disturbance comes to destroy
this entire world – let it!

What could I do
but stay in my heart?
Stay here, where
something is burning.

And whilst I wait between
unknowable and unknown,

Perhaps the life
that is warm and moving
will carry my understanding
deeper, to a place where

All this breaking will only have been
the tearing down of walls:
the walls of my being.

So if it hurts and feels like it’s the end,
maybe it’s only the beginning of beyond;
Because the walls are not me
and all I ever asked for was to be free:
Free of all that is not true,
Free to merge with infinity,
to meet G-d – Fully.

(It was a name we were given
for that which has no name.)

All that ever remains is this longing.

If I Were a Bird

If I were a bird,
I would fly –
it would be that easy!

No need to do anything else
but soar and glide freely
The wind would be my guide
I would dance on invisible currents,
wings spread out wide
and what then?
How wise i would be,
knowing nothing!

Today, in the rain,
while we huddled indoors
and time passed by,
a bird flew up! Up!
Straight into the grey white cloud
and then it was gone
into the unknown beyond
where the sun was still shining.

If i were a bird,
I would fly –
it would be that easy!

Seekers of Light

We long to send our spirits up – To soar above the sky
Yet our tiny hearts will tremble  – All the faster when we try

We would be steadfast warriors  – With intentions made of gold
Yet our human ways will stumble –  On the same mistakes of old
Invisible threads connect us  – In ways we don’t perceive
Yet we imagine we are separate  – And alone the ‘I’ must grieve

In darkness we find lightness  – As healing grows through pain
Then we see in one another –  The beauty and the shame
We carry deep within us  – The source of all that is
Yet we struggle in confusion  – Imperfect incomplete

Intelligence misleads us  – It feeds the ego mind
In the search for truth and wisdom  – We can’t know the things we find
Our questions lead us higher  – Then throw us to the ground
It isn’t ‘till the asker fades –  That nothing can be found

In the stillness of the night time  – By the language of the wild
We pass through the fear that bound us –  To reclaim the dreaming child
In dancing and in music  – And In the simple joy to be
In the quiet understanding –  That we share we can be free

We breathe light toward the centre –  As we ride upon the wave
To cry and laugh as love transforms us  – Humble gentle brave
