I Am

Allowing warmth of sun
to unfurl
petals of heart’s holding
Trembling heart
protecting the familiar
sense of ‘me’
alone
divided from
wholeness

Gently meeting suspended
breath
with allowing
In tender presence
love coaxes
itSelf out
into the light
of revealing
it’s full glorious
reality

As light pours in
there can be no mistake
that love
is dancing in light’s ray
As warm sun
bright and golden
touches hanging mist
it burns the haze
to mercy

Love’s embrace
brings us home to
the oneness of light
Lingering
just a little longer
in the moment
of realisation
of one heart
I am me
no more
I am

 

Saturated Silence

A mind that is looking
for something
will always find
something

An innocent,
open mind
will discover the emptiness
in which the mind and the ‘something’
is taking place

Let go of spiritual ambition
Surrender to grace
Discover you are already
saturated
with silent Self

 

Brilliance Is

Creation bursting
forth from
pure aliveness

Pure aliveness
arising from
pristine stillness

Life arising
in presence
of Being

Sunshine brilliance
always shining
Truth of Self
always free

Flower of heart
always blossoming
radiating cosmic love
into loving
presence

Beauty reveals
magnificence
always here
always you

Life reflects
it all dancing
seamlessly
in cosmic tempo

Allow the brilliance
of heart’s longing
to awaken
the wholeness
of every corner
of infinity
until stars are spilling
from your lips
and love is flowing
as the river of life’s essence
singing silence’s song

Be it all
gracefully open
The yes
that bursts the dam
of me divided from you
into pure beloved
union
the true love between
the romance
the true you between
the lines of story
the truth of Being
seeping into the cracks
you call wounds

Awareness is here
Is you
Opening as love itself
Bowing at the altar
of presence
Always here
as this
Whole holy love
Brilliant as sunshine

 

 

Belonging

Returning home
to our belonging
Melting into
heart’s call
to belong to
our oneness
As salt
belongs to the sea

To so fully be
the longing
so as to become
one
that knows
itSelf
yet unknows
everything
other
just one
Wisdom suspended
in pure silence

Be not fooled
by what shines
in alluring brightness
For true brilliance
is only found
in dissolving
into the light of awareness
not in moving towards
what keeps you bound

Fall back into
what is seeking
Discover the source
Stare into the
luminous face
of awareness
Intrepid traveller
is it so long
since you wandered
far from home
you forgot you left
the lights on?

Rest now
You are home
The longing
for wholeness
is
already
fulfilled

 

What Is

Between
the still mountain
and the ocean’s
dynamic aliveness
pure Being
Life living itself
only knowing
this
what Is
one with
no other
wholeness
fulfilled
Silent presence
flowing as grace
What sees
only sees Itself
Only this
What Is

 

Be Found

Come out of the shadows
enter life
make an agreement
to live
your humanness
In the light
of presence
you silently spin
in reverence
of what you have
always known
 
You have been hiding
wearing the protective
coat of separation
masked by the story
Be your own companion
in just Being
Be alone
so alone
any notion of other
disappears
You are held
by the unseen mystery
of your own wholeness
 
Presence drops you on
the edge
of what is known
and unknown
the precipice of infinity
It is here, now
that life begins
Conscious life
Human life
Divine life
All one
living miracle
The play of existence
 
Are you willing
to embrace the freedom
you seek?
To see your Self
To take the hand of love
with which you love
Step out of the shadows
Give up
the battle of maintaining
the limited self
and melt
Merge
into Being
intimate with
your disappearance
Into all
that you are
Show up
Fall into the
well of your
heart’s longing
Be found

Be Taken

You are known
by silence
Be still
Be taken
Grace is here
in the pause
between

Listen
Receive silence
as your guest
Open to the heart
of Being
Hold nothing back

Be still
Be taken
You are here
Silent radar
will find you
Presence will enter you
Be found
in the stillness
of Now
Stop seeking
Be found

Be taken
home
Be filled
with awe
Do not need to know
where you are
Not knowing
nourishes presence
Stillness knows
Be found
here
Silent
arms hold you
tenderly

 

Silent Sketch #2

Words are carried
in silence
What the words say
does not matter
it is the presence
of this moment
they arrive in
that lands
in a knowing place

A knowing place
beyond time and space
Before the story
of me
small and bound
Arriving in presence
Here we are
empty of all
that defines,
That holds us contained

Arriving in our silent home
Freedom
Unbounded awareness
Only aware of now
Freedom, the letting go
of all concepts
we build our fragile world
of separation upon
A world built on thoughts
tentative and volatile

Allowing edges to soften,
merging into what is
These words just pointers
to what is here
The silence they are carried in
an invitation to know
who you are
Right now
Dive deeper than the surface
and discover Being

Words dance to entice the mind
into resonant surrender
Silence pervades all that is
Sowing a seed of stillness
Growing quietly
Letting go of being the one
in control
Expanding into emptiness
and resting
in the now
Presence is the key
the doorway
the map
the territory
the truth
Silence calls
Presence is
This moment is
You are

 

Silent Sketch #1

 

Drop deeper
than the shallow water
of life’s story
Live from
silent source
where Being is the
movement of heart
to speak
to act
All motion is Being
in flow

Swim below
thoughts and opinions
of being right
or being wrong
Dwell not
in the swell
but in the depths of
Silent Being

In unmoving stillness
there is no you
or me
Just one
Hold onto nothing
Project nothing
Rest as an open
Yes
As openness itself

All answers are held
in silence
not understanding
not believing
but knowing
what is

In the stillness of silence
nothing more is needed

In silence
the richness
is abundant beyond words
Bliss is known as
pure acceptance of what is
Joy is causeless contentment
Love is all

Swimming on the surface
is fleeting
Deep diving through layers
of life into wholeness

Awareness Being

 

Divine Mother

Divine Mother
Your grace is
my heart song
This life is your pulse
I am your vessel
being played
in perfect flow


Feast and be
nourished
through this body
Through this heart
I live your mercy and
I know your love


At your lotus feet
I bow
This devotion I am
is the flow of
your breath
All that I see is your
beauty
your creation
your golden light
spinning into Being


Everything I do
is a silent prayer
inviting your pristine purity
into every atom
of Being
so that I may serve
you more
I reside
in you
you in me


Glorious One
Mother of All
that is
Divine Mother
this heart of light
is yours
