Awaken”

Still mind

Calm breath

Buddha is realized

Open heart

Pure soul

Brahman is attained

Simple life

Quiet home

The Self will be recognized

Humble speech

Illumined eyes

Peace will be achieved.

“The Naked Truth”

By: Forrest Rivers

sun rays inside cave

            Listen

            Look….

            No, I mean

            REALLY Look!

            YOU must

            Always act

            With the awareness

            Of Naked Truth!

            Ask yourself:

            Can clarity be achieved

            In any other way?

“A Sacred Union”

By: Forrest Rivers

A sacred flash

Of the eternal

A sport of love

Like no other

My divine mother

Flows through me

Her thoughts

Become my thoughts

And her actions

Become my actions

When I breathe

The air enters

And exits

Through my lungs

As her rarefied spirit

Moves me

I am nothing

But a faithful conduit

Of her boundless love.

“Surrender”

By: Forrest Rivers

full moon along clouds

Late in the night

I cry

Asking God why

I draw so close to the light

But I can’t seem to find

My peace of mind

Late in the night

I cry

Asking God why

I hold to these illusions

That bind

Me to this worldly life

My soul yearns

To be wrapped

In your blanket of love

Safe in the heavens above

From this mess

That I’ve created

To miss the mark

Is the true meaning of hell,

This night I can tell

Will be a long one of surrender

Before you, my creator.

“None are by Accident”

By Forrest Rivers

silhouette of mountain under cloudy sky during daytime

The mountains and forests

The Sunrise and Sunset

The lakes, rivers and oceans

None are by accident

The plants and animals

The deserts and plains

The rain, lightning and fire

None are by accident

The Sun and the Moon

The planets and the stars

The galaxies and the Cosmos

None are by accident

Awareness, Presence and Light

Each are the spirit of the Eternal

Merging with the wisdom of form

Nothing in this Universe is by accident.
