Visioning

vision

What’s the vision of the future?
The one we see in dreams,
Details silently appearing, one-by-one,
As we paint the pictures of our lives,
Following the path to paradise,
Long and winding, the end unclear

Yet we feel compelled to keep on moving,
Keep on building,
Keep on visioning
Until the future comes fully into sight,
Created from our own dedication,
Our determination,
Our courage to persevere

For the good of man and beast,
For our very own existence,
The call inside too deep to ignore,
The vision too real to let go

Let It Shine

let it shine

Activate your love powers
For all the world to feel,
Saturate your heart light
That those who touch you
May feel love’s warmth,
May no longer know the sting
Of tiny deaths we die each day
When love is not alive
And connection cannot be found

In your heart light
Lies the answers,
The prophecy,
For a kinder tomorrow,
A brighter soul space,
A living testament to the connection
That guides the future

Let it live within
Let it shine within
Reaching all the insides,
Radiating outside
Let it shine

Inner Truth

inner truth2

Dear ones,
It’s not your job to save the world
Though you may feel it heavy on your bones
Like the weight of a thousand tomorrows
Crashing down like an angry wave
Which slips violently onto shore
And back out again with only darkness on its lips

Carrying sand, shells, sediment
Churning the contents of the shallow wading pools,
Disrupting the fishes at the shore,
Creating a subtle new reality after its retreat

Only to give way to the next,
Relentless in its consistency and calm,
Churning and changing in the gentle light,
Never leaving the shore
The same as it was found

And so, in your daily walk,
When the call becomes a battle cry,
Let the waves land upon your heart with love,
Churning up the sediment of fear,
Disrupting the pattern of resistance,
Creating a new truth –
A truth which is only found inside

A Warrior for Your Own Heart

Diving

The well’s dried up
Its water a mere trickle,
A puddle,
Muddy and unmoving
And a voice whispers,

“You must seek another source.
You’re plugging the wellspring
With your own self-doubts
And the muddied energy of the world.
No wonder you have no flow”

You must dive in headfirst
Without fear or delay,
Find where the water ceases to fill you any longer,
No matter the time or breath it takes.
Your drowning in the process
Won’t be in vain
For you will rise up stronger,
More divine than ever before.

Dive in to rock bottom,
Seek your source,
Re-emerge a warrior for your own heart”

Higher Self

beautiful woman fluttering hair and space earth

Under the night sky my mind wanders,
Floats to different days,
Times of great strife and great plenty,
Times when the wind howled
But I was not afraid
Because I knew you

Then, the light shone through
And illuminated the world,
Each being, each dark soul
Crossing the bridge, starting a new life
Out of the darkness
Drawn like moths to flame
The flames of their hearts longing for something new
A lighthouse in the mist to guide them home

Once across they huddled ‘round
Reaching toward your robes, your wings,
But you sent them on,
Moving forward,
Driven not by you,
But by the light they now carried too
Their own light of discovery and transformation,
A light for survival in a dark world,
A light of hope
Powered by love

This light you carry never dims
Unless you choose to no longer see
And all I need do to see it too
Is set my dreams to higher times,
And the dimension where the self
Inherently knows the way

To the light
To the love
To the power within to bring men home

The Connection between Darkness and Light

justice

Time to rise up,
Face the day,
Become the warrior you’re meant to be,
Become the solider in the trenches
Facing off with the darkness,
Residing in the hearts of man,
Fighting your own darkness first,

Not to eradicate
But to reveal,
To illuminate,
To make whole again
The connection between darkness and light

For one cannot exist without the other
Yet both must be visible
For balance to be achieved,
For wholeness to be experienced,
For equality to be had by all

You Are the Prayer

meditating in a spring field

You are the prayer
Quietly whispered by the Creator
In the moment you were breathed into existence
The spark which lit the night
And sent awareness into the skies

You are the prayer
Silently held in the lonely chapel
Beads tightly gripped in sweaty hands
Hoping for a god of miracles

You are the prayer
The joyous celebration of songs sung
From the high cathedrals of the heart
Echoing through the halls of your soul

You are the prayer
Of the grasses and trees
The flowers, the streams, the wind, and the bee
You are the last hope, the savior
The one wields the power to harvest the future

You are the prayer, the song
The sanctuary of the collective soul
You are the one you’ve been waiting for
