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.

Be Unspeakable

This great love that comes upon you,
that wraps you, envelops you,
melts you so tenderly
in the indescribable embrace;
That breaks you open with a soft “Oh!”
of surprised loving;
That enters you utterly
with the most exquisite gentleness
you have ever perceived;

It is not yours –
neither of your own doing,
nor of your own effort:

It is a gift from beyond,
it is grace flowing –
it is the support of light itself.

Don’t take it for granted!

There’s a tiny voice, far too loud:
“I have been searching everywhere
whilst you were here always,

I will take you when I am ready –
You are all that I long for – please stay
whilst I step aside
to continue my dream
for just a little longer:

Your touch is – unspeakably divine
but you want me far too much,
or is it I who is wanting?

Either way, I will drown myself in you,
but  first, let me forget again –
so I may behave like one who has not
been kissed by the source of G-d –
for just another day, or week,
or perhaps a life or two:

I’m not yet ready to exchange
my freedom
for the infinity of unbound loving,
My shadows still need
a little space, to play.”

Don’t listen!

When this Love comes
drop everything
and say “yes, yes, YES!”

You must be ready
to throw yourself in completely –
to give up every thing you have
in an unstoppable flow of gratitude;
Be unspeakable –
really you have nothing to give,
all you can offer is so incredibly modest
in the ultimate face of this – Love.

It is the greatest mystery
why any being,
any small, lost, suffering being
(which is all that we are)
would reject the beloved;
Would reject truth, and life itself,
for a few more stolen moments
destructively engaged with the senses.

Oh, we hurt ourselves so
much, whilst G-d weeps.

Don’t take love for granted!
When grace comes,
the time is right –
the time is now.
Let it set your heart on fire
and don’t turn back.

When you recognise how small you are
as you try to ignore G-d –
When you see how long, how patiently
your own Soul has been waiting;
When you realise how relentlessly
this love has been poured upon you –
and know how much
you have been forgiven,
You will weep oceans of tears.

Bow down to this light, this love,
this absolute tenderness – in which
you have been so completely permeated –
accept the Soul’s embrace;
From this moment,
surrender to the infinite holding,
in every breath of spirit
be moved by Grace.

Whisper into the fullness,
“Here is my heart:
Take it,  Enter,
Now”
