Blessing of Now

Enjoy
A day of grace
Divine Being
This moment
is the only gift 
you need
Rest here
in the blessing of
Now

Know your Self
as the pure light
of conscious awareness
Shining bright
Whatever the story on
the surface says
You are whole
You are life
You are love

The Light Shines On

Called into the deepest dark

An invitation from innermost being

of light and joy

to return home

to bask in the eternal magnificence

of what is

to rest at the alter of this long dark night

 

A tiny spark

ignites into a dancing fire

of infinite wonder

Shaping itself as life

again and again

in divine surrender

Bowing to the light

we get close enough to

awaken a knowing

That however dark the darkness

feels

However heavy the carrying

is

in the quagmire of life’s

unlit depths

the sun still shines

 

Gleaming sparks of

love’s essence join

one to the other

dot to dot

remembering the union

of the Beloved is here

in our living

The silent Amness of Being

unstirred by the winds of change

Dynamic spirit choreographed

into an unexpected landscape

A blank canvas of unknowing

Freefalling in freedom unchosen

 

Flowing as the effulgent

now

into every eerie nook

Roaring a wordless prayer

Surrender carries fiery grace

Beaming luster into

the crypt of blind impressions

Without a story

Who am I?

 

An effervescent bubble rises

from silent ground

Bursting into causeless joy

Remembering the feeling

of wind in hair

Warm sun on skin

Hands in moist earth

Barefeet on grass

Water quenching thirst

Diving into ocean deep

Dancing unabandoned

Divine music opening heart of bliss

The thrill of the catch caught

Alchemy of transformation

brewing magic before your very eyes

Yes, love is here

in every gesture

 

Light is here

illuminating

in mysterious ways that

do not always feel kind

And we are here

to remember

We shine in earnest reflection

Hum the song of soul

Witness as presence

Love without reason

Laugh until bellies ache

Reveal beauty beyond measure

in our most vulnerable expression

Stand side by side hand in hand

when tears fall and hearts ache

We share it all

The celebration of life

 

And as the breath of silence

coaxes embers to enliven

the wellspring of love

Light is here

in our hearts

and this sharing

is the sacred fire

we tend

 

Resting at the alter of this long dark night

we remember

how precious

is this blessing

of being human

together

As one

brilliant ray of

perfect love

descending from

above

from beyond

And the light

shines on

And the light

shines on
