“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!

“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?

“A Glimpse of Eternity”

2 person standing on rocky hill near green trees under blue sky during daytime

Walking

In the direction

Far away

From our broken

Low down society

Rotten

Like spoiled milk

I may just leave

Everything behind today

To gain a glimpse

Of that unspoken truth

The TAO of new beginnings

And Buddha meeting Christ

On the winding road of love….

The sun sets

the moon emerges

And still I wander

To where?

I don’t know

To when?

I haven’t a clue!

How long,

Until I decide

To effortlessly flow

With the eternal springs of life?

“Love is all we Have”

By: Forrest Rivers

love one another chalk written on concrete floor

Love is all we have

Give peace to this world

And never waver

Love is all we have

Keep faith in this world

And always remember

To keep your inner light on

We must grow now together

Love is all we have

Show courage in this world

And never surrender

Love is all we have

The moment is now

To evolve in our awareness

Love

Faith

And truth

Is what we need!

“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?
