“True Faith Again”

In the dark night of the soul

When your faith begins to break

It is a good time to meditate

Upon the nature of suffering….

For as certain as the sun rises each day

Your pain will dissolve

And new beginnings will shine through

With gentle ease

To guide you through the rough seas

Of your soul’s awakening.

“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.

“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.

“Your Dreams Will Come True”

By: Forrest Rivers

Dreams are dreams until they fully manifest into the timeless flow of now. Then they become your dreams realized. Never give up on your dreams. Never let them fall by the wayside. For your dreams will only fail to come true if you stop pursuing them. Life is short. Tomorrow is not promised. Live each day with an awareness of purpose. Your dreams matter. Chase them with unwavering courage, faith and wisdom.

“The Locksmith”

By: Forrest Rivers

skeleton key surround with dry leaves

Fear and selfishness

Unlock the gates of hell

Faith and service

Unlock the gates of heaven

You are the Locksmith:

Which of the two gates will you open?
