“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.

“Fulfill Your Destiny”

two person standing on full your destiny pavement artwork

Every choice you make matters

And every kind or malicious act vibrates

Through the Universe ten-fold

Your life is a precious opportunity to build good karma

So, act accordingly….

But at the same time

Take a deep breath

And allow your reality to unfold

With boundless faith and courage….

For on a higher cosmic plane

The will of the Divine has already spoken—-

Leading you with signs

To fulfill your destiny.

“An Ode to my Beloved”

photo of mountains under blue sky

I can see you

I can feel you

And i can smell you

Oh supreme Goddess

Your divine fragrance is strong….

For your blooming spring flowers

Entrance my senses

And the glorious blue mountains

In whom you take your exalted form

Stirs something deep within me

That is so primal

Pure

And all knowing….

Oh, Eternal Goddess of truth and righteousness

How can I possibly ascend your rarefied peaks

When my own soul is still undeserving

Of your inextinguishable love?

“luminous Essence”

“Luminous Essence”

Having too little faith will turn one into a hopeless nihilist

But having an abundance of faith will attract others to your light

Don’t be like a dog chasing its tail

Or an office worker complaining day in and day out

Doing nothing to improve their lot—-

For behind all the world’s illusions lies the ultimate reality

At once transcendent and imminent

Filled to the brim with love

Beyond birth

Beyond death

Omnipresent

Within everything

But like an old lamp

You have to first remove the layers of dust

To see its luminous essence.
