How to Quiet the Mind

quiet mind

The mind doesn’t quiet
Or slow its thinking
And would we even want it to?

It protects us,
Warns us,
Keeps us out of our own way

And also,
The mind creates fear
Indecision and doubt

And so we need a balance
Of logic and peace,
Protection and freedom,
A life free from self-imposed fear

And in that quest
We find stillness,
Forgiveness,
Gratitude for all our weary minds
Have shown us in love
And duty
Faithfully leading the way

Step aside
Let the heart lead
Let the mind rest
A gift for a lifetime of service

This Is for the Quiet Women


This is for the quiet women.

The women whose hearts are as large as any other, yet their soft voices fall on deaf ears tuned in only to noise.

The women who inwardly scream with passion for all they hold dear, yet outwardly present themselves more discreetly than others.

The women who are overlooked and ignored by those who may speak louder, though not necessarily with more substance.

This is for us.

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
