Taste Silence

Life is
continually
weeding
the garden
of individuality
 
Consumed
in reverence
of the exquisite
exactness
of divine
perfection
 
She dances
with prowess
as Everything
Dying into
the freedom
of true living
 
I love you
She says
Planting the words
on this tongue
Echoing her
heart song
from these lips
 
I am you
She says
Every breath
Every move
Every sound
Every feeling
The world of play
appearing
as a perpetual
dance of
surrender
Being
reabsorbed
 
Bowing into
what is
without a prayer
Emptiness
inhabited
only by its own
knowing
 
Be filled
wholly
with
the Love
that you are
Disappear
into your Self
Taste
Silence

Devotion Is

In the willingness
to be so fully undone
For all strategies to end
Surrender is here

To see and be seen
in the light
of what is

To rest
as undefended
presence
at the feet of Life

Being humbled
again and again
As threads
of defense
dissolve
and the true power
of Being
is embodied
Life living itSelf

A pure power
that wants nothing
A power
that says
I don’t know
there is no knowing
there is only this

And the eternal heart
beats in
silent reverence

Devotion Is

Loving Grace

Gentle power
of grace
Open arms
embracing all

You are welcome
All of you is
welcome
in universal heart

Dissolve into this
compassionate
spacious
emptiness
that sees you
with eyes of love

Into the one who
knows the
tender meanderings
of your heart

Know
you are seeing
through the eyes
of oneness
Love seeing itself
and only
loving

 

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

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

 

Love Is

Passing through
the door of stillness
We discover the sanctuary
of infinite freedom
While life is shaking
at it’s very foundations
Being’s silent presence
holds strong
Unconcerned
in quiet knowing
Deeper than the
surface quaking
 
Heart rests
Gazing upon the
simple beauty
of a flower
Sacred happening
resplendent
in glorious detail
Hummingbird joyfully free
is nourished by sweetness
The same divine nectar
I am drinking in
 
The bee of mind
alights here
Falling in and in
to the ever benevolent
arms of grace
The holiness of Now
lands in the blossom
of heart’s petals
Mother’s mercy
flowing as faith
in all that is
A single tear falls
Within it
universes dance
Love spins a web
of it’s eternal light
and this is
what I am
Everywhere
In all things
Love Being
Love Is

The Dance

One foot steps
courageously another follows
entering
a swirling dance
of destruction

Awakening to Self
baring all
to the naked truth
of Being
So intimate
nothing can be hidden
In this light
everything is revealed
beyond the skin
of contracted comfort

And as the foundations
on which the house
of me is built
tumble into
dust
Blown into the
wind of all that is
Leaving your
raw aliveness
floating free
in a mysterious void

Opening to Self
is a bareback ride on a
wild horse
Untameable freedom
calls for
immeasurable devotion
Essential divinity
is the ineffable gift
of deep diving
Free falling
and trusting
truth has wings
or there is no ground

Spacious awareness
Mysterious beauty
Haunting call
Where am I now?
Fall in and in
to emptiness
where I stands no more
Grace took
your place
and all that remains
is a shimmering
glint in the eye
of Being

Well of Silence

Silence
is the key to
the full
truth of Being

To know silence
is to know God

So you see
silence is a
companion
you want to
spend time with

Silent devotion
is the end of
seeking
The end of suffering
A refuge of
divine knowing

All that you are
is right here
in the simple
presence
of silence

The silent well
is overflowing
Drink now
Quench your thirst
for Self
Fill yourself
with God

Golden Light

Sun bright
one light
one source
beaming rays
glistening
like visiting stars
dancing
in shadows
with you

Simple exquisite
groundless
mandala of life
unseen
formless
unknown
causeless
fiery aliveness
living
through you

Turning towards
the mystery
closed eyes
bathe
in warming
golden light
untamed presence
left its longing
in you

Something will be lost
Nothing will be missed
Wholeness
is eternally fulfilled

Invisible foot prints
sparkle
as gold dust
walked upon by God

Freedom Is

I can neither love you
nor love you not
I am love
Emotions that arise
affect not
the love that
I am
that you are
that is

Emotions cannot
touch the radiance
of Being
Who you are
I am
I am undisturbed
by thoughts
by feelings
by emotions
I push nothing
away
I meet all that is
as it is

Who you are
is not a state
of Being
Freedom is constant
and always here
everything that appears
arises in freedom
unapologetically
free

Moods come and go
in boundless
silent awareness
that is you
You are not
your moods
You are luminous stillness
that is not separate
from emotions flowing
Absolute unity

You can be fully human
and you are always free
from any idea of separation
that mind may cling to
You are infinite
beyond anything
thoughts can possibly
fathom

Experience emotions
but turn away from the story
that has the habit of
spinning a web of
invisible bondage
that fools
you into believing
you are the wave
and not the ocean
deep and free

Do not run
from emotion
Be still
present
now
and open
Recognize
this pivotal turning point as
a dense knot of fear
and suffering loosening
and losing it’s power over you
as you rest
allowing all to be
as it is
you realize
there is no power
outside of pure consciousness
You are the power
and presence
of God

Awareness is you
I am
one awareness
loving what is
Freedom
is here
omnipotently divine
What I am
has never been bound
What you are
has always been free
