The Time When Light Won

Staircase praise

If at first
You don’t reach the light
Try, try again,
For the light is not found fleeting,
Yet we are,
Our thoughts lost
In insincere and meandering ways,
Victims of the chaos that surrounds
With no preference to whom it takes asunder
In the throes of life

And so, we must not give up hope
Or lose ourselves to fear,
No matter how justified,
For these are the days of fortitude
And progress through transgression,
These are the days when we will recall
To our children’s children
The time when Light won

Daily Bliss – June 20


The Angels remind us that while it’s the big things in life that most often capture our attention, it’s the small things that quietly capture our hearts.  Pay attention to the small things today: the bird hopping in the grass, the butterfly on a flower, the kind smile of a stranger in the grocery, the gentle touch of someone you love.  Take comfort in the awareness that small miracles surround us at all times. 

A Life Fulfilled

Twisted clock face. Time concept

Time keeps ticking on
Bringing with it a subtle sense of panic
For a life not fully lived,
Tasks still to be completed,
Fulfillment of dreams still out of reach

So much still to do
Before the sun rises on a new day,
Before the passage of time
Has more space between the seconds

In the meantime,
We can fit more love into the minutes
Stretch them out
And make the days grow longer
From the love that’s poured within

It’s the only way we know
To quell the human panic,
Live the myth of life fulfilled with time,
And live a life fulfilled with Love

The Angels remind us that compassion is always within our reach, for it resides within.  We can cultivate this daily by extending compassion to others, and when we feel alone, we can draw on that feeling and extend compassion to ourselves.
