“Heart of Wisdom”

men's yellow traditional dress

Academia gives birth

To false pursuits of wisdom

The State gives birth

To brutal horrors of war

Industry gives birth

To savage inequalities

The church gives birth

To the perversion of spirituality….

So, the man of wisdom

lies in wait

Opting instead

To remain fulfilled in stillness

But ever ready is he

To receive the foolish

with open arms and an open heart

For in truth he knows

That he is also them.

“Life is Worth Living”

The morning sun

Rises

Reminding hearts

Filled with yearning

That life is worth living

That life is worth trying

You decide your fate

You decide the time

To become

like the wisdom of the One

Smiling

upon all beings

With the blessing

And simple truth

Of loving kindness.

“Mystic Knowing”

sun light in the middle of the forest

A moment of absolute knowing

Reality bursting through

A clear blue sky of awareness

A good omen from the Universe

To continue on your path wisely

A glimpse

Into higher planes of consciousness

The spirit revealed through form

Love made manifest.

“The Spirit of the Wild”

Out in the wilderness, simplicity and freedom reign supreme. Everything is just as it is.  Uncompromising in her beauty, fulfilled with seeking, the essence of truth reflected. Nothing in nature acts out of course…. for how could the most transcendent of God’s glorious expressions fall anything short of perfection? Want to know the true meaning of infinite wisdom and real diversity? Step into the wild and experience the wonder of being free!

“Silent offerings”

Silent offerings

From a distant time and place

Memories keep me near

To the source

Where I can hear:

Cool water

Raining down

Jagged rock faces

Into God’s pool below

To merge with what came before

Birth and death.
