A Light for the World

light for the world

The seat of the soul lies buried deep;
It’s time to let it out,
Dig it up and share it with the world
The time for fear is past

This life is different,
It holds a power greater than any before
The power of change,
The power of love,
Stronger, more attainable than ever

The world may think us mad for claiming to see it,
The scorched earth before us belying all the senses
But we know it,
It’s in our bones, our DNA,
In the particles which create us from the inside out
We know it because it lives in us,
Breathes in us
It longs to be free of us,
To reside in the world as us

We can no longer ignore, in fear and distrust,
What we know in our bones to be true,
For it is in us, it IS us
And we are a light for the world

Become the Way

Earth - Beautiful Horizons

Rising energy
Of the setting sun
Isn’t lost on heavy hearts,
The winds of change howling in our ears

Instead, the pressure lifts us up,
Rising to the peak of our existence
Where we see blue above the clouds,
Sun on the horizon
From another side of the world

This perspective gives us wings
To raise our fearful energy to grace,
Envelope our hearts in compassion
For a darkened world turned light

And lift our healing hearts into the sky,
Rising, rising to meet the sun
The light, merging and emerging,
Into night, into day

Become the way,
For a people led astray

Inner Space

inner space

In the great here and now
Everything’s changing
Everyone’s turning
Eyes to a new light

Some with hope and devastation
Some with the light of new life
Each fueled by the desire
For inner peace and love

The changing ones are leading
In the back doors of our minds
With carefully planted words and songs

Right up front in the conference halls
On the screens
In the churches
On the scenes

Yet pay attention to the quiet ones,
The ones who lead with gentleness and service
In the backdrop of the crowd

For Jesus even said, “Blessed are the meek”
And the meekest of us all
May possess the inner space
To hold the love that opens up
All our starving hearts
