Song of Devotion

The devotion I am
in tones of silence
a symphony of

In reverence
I bow to the light
that illuminates
the way
the grace
that fills us
with divine wisdom
sharing the
Truth of Being
until we fall into
her arms
in exhausted
to see what we
have been seeking
was here all along

Inner guru
rising as resonance
deep in a mysterious place
that we cannot
quite locate
a space that is boundless
infinite openness
where words
fall away and
soulful and playful
wholeness shimmering
as absolute stillness
resting in supreme peaceful
Beingness that dispels
and shines as the light of
all that is

Divine joy
glistening brilliance

dissolving resistance until
all we can
really ‘do’
is fall in and in
to the silence
that pervades
presiding as presence
that roars in aliveness
stillness speaking
it’s clarity

Great guru
Great Oneness
All that is
the devotion I am
your glory
the magnificence
that is

Bow and bow again
be taken
give it all
and bow again

Into the light
into love
into peace
into joy
dive deep
until you drown
in this shining
silent truth

If not you, who? If not now, when?

I posted a poem earlier… Fiery Love… the message therein is not to say that we do not pray for rain as our skies remain smokey, our sun is pink and orange and our forests burn… of course we do all that we can to improve and care for our environment but we have to know what we see has a deeper message.

Change starts with Self… The craziness of our world is a direct reflection of our ignoring the Truth of our Being – Ignorance…

It is time to wake up. This is what is being asked of us. To really fully and wholly STOP and see what is right here in this moment. Consciousness is speaking in a language of burning up the earth to shake us awake, to have us listen to our deepest knowing… Still, many will not care but at least for those whose hearts are open to love the earth this is a start… loving space in the heart means there is an open doorway to let the fullness of the love that you are come rushing in. 

We only see what is… the external world is a hologram of our internal worlds… and this will only change as our collective internal world shifts. An awakening shift in perspective is required – to stop seeing the world only through two mortal eyes which can get spun out by fearful thoughts but to see the world from the one eye of Unity that knows itSelf as undivided wholeness. That knows that everything that is happening is somehow perfect.

So we open and surrender with no desired outcome… we let go into the arms of grace. We love what is and Be where we are. We become lovers of Truth more than we love anything else!

As I walked by the ocean today after writing the Fiery Love poem I heard the words… If not you, who? And if not now, when? Inquire friends… go deep… deeper than you have ever gone…. do not let fear stop you… open your heart all the way, beyond the love of your story and beautiful life… let the truth fill you and expand you into the infinite, unbounded, limitless, eternal reality and discover you are not the small self you have believed yourself to be… keep going until you find yourself home to the Truth of Being. You will find more beauty here than you ever dreamed possible… honestly!!

If not now, WHEN? If not you, WHO?

All love


Fiery Love

Everything we see
is our Self
There is only one
When we stop raging
against ourselves
Burning the Truth
of our hearts
and soul
for the pleasures and
pains of illusion
The appearance of us
raging and blazing against
our world
can stop

And knowing will know…
Peace in our hearts
will appear as peace
in our world

Flowing wakefulness
is right here in the
stillness of the moment
in the one awareness
that is you
that is me
that is all apparent others
that is the majesty of trees
blazing in authentic surrender

We belong to each other
we are not separate
we are the land
the trees
the fire
the firefighters
the spark that
lit up the sky
the sun
the heat
the water
the change
no blame
no other
just one
conscious awareness
coming home
to the perfect
Truth of Being

Love is all
Love is love
All love
