Face upturned she weeps tears of joy at the sight of her radiant love..
Looking down he zones in on her to end the quest of his search.
The union even undenied by distance, stands transfixed
As each on its own is complete, yet together, magnify love and joy.
Such is this inner-outer self,
As when connected and accepted,
When understood and revered
The union is second to none..
Radiant beams flow from within
As the source to all is tapped,
The union cherished,
No space for division and no power to deny…
Lovers to lovers
In all their realms,
And bask in glorious unions…
Hey you!”, said #1
“Come on up here, the view is amazing!”
“I know what you mean!” said #2
Never disagreeing with the man above
“Fine and dandy for them” said #3
“There’s clearly no more room at the top”
“I don’t want to hear your whining!” said #4
“Quit your bickering” said #5
“At least we are safe down here”
Oblivious to the trials of reaching the top
#6 and 7 are clearly lateral thinkers going their own way!
Have you got to the top of your game?
Are you helping the next man up?
Or are you looking up
Wondering if your success trip is too risky to make?
Wherein lies your real success?
It’s in knowing you are here
In this space
In this time
So whatever your stance
Enjoy the dance
As you reached your destination
On the day of arrival
Top or bottom
Of which ever ladder you choose
Recognize your inherent gifts
Love that instills security
Joy that infuses passion
Gratitude that brings contentment
Tap that source within
Reap the rewards and
The precarious ladder will lose its grip.
Consciousness will become your success!
Of passion and sensuality
Of purity and clarity
Of friendship and warmth
At first they bud
Then they bloom
Slowly the petals cascade on down..
Even when dried and wrinkled
Fragrant of character they still are
So What’s to reflect and enjoy continues to be ever present…
My, What lessons to learn!
What insights to behold!
What awe to witness!
So next time when gifting the rose
Know I shall be returned
Not only to the smile of gratitude,
But also the circle of life
Where true essence never dies…
What is your deepest strength and protection?
Is it the barriers we put up?
Is it the fortresses we hide in?
Is it the choice of ignorance ?
Barriers, fortresses and ignorance
Bring isolated oblivion at a cost
The cost of living a death!
Your greatest strength is your vulnerability!
Yes, that part of you that risks the deepest wounds
Wounds which only heal with true understanding and acknowledgement of what really is…
And in the process
The risk taken
Can bring the sweetest pleasures of living!!
The trick is to find your way
Walk with and let in the ones
Who enjoy and dance a like tune of their own
And hence forth
Your unions, your vulnerability
Will present as treasures not risks!!!
There is a house
There is a light
There is fog
There is a foghorn…
The house is of visible splendor
But with no light there is no home…
There are distractions from the light
Murky and misty, obscuring the way…
There are alerts to warn of the dangers
And most of all, there is the Keeper.
The Keeper knows all the signs
The keeper knows just how to direct
The keeper knows just when he is needed..
So live soundly in your house
Make your house your home
Listen to the keeper and find your light
Light with fervor and fight
Break through all the dangers
Anchor secure and steady
Rest and relax in your home
And learn to become
The Keeper of your Light!!
Audible fan fair
Visible beams of grandeur
Clinking of glasses
Laughter and conversation
Acquaintances to life long friendships
Words of acknowledgement
Tears of gratitude
And embraces heartfelt
From bursts of fun to long lasting happiness
From festive frolic to true joy
From momentary surprises to constant enjoyment
Receive and reflect
Understand the possibilities
As time and presence collide
Enjoy the times
Make the memories
Treasure your companions
Oh, what it is to celebrate!
Behold the opportunities!!
And take none for granted!!!
Atop a thistle leathered dermis
In the middle of the arid desert
Refreshing aqua drops
Form a puff of seemingly nothingness
Quenches the thirsty on solid ground…
Within the mortal shell of this being
Lays the priceless gem
Powering all for the unknowing mortal..
We search endlessly
For all joys and pleasures externally.
So turn the eyes inwards
Muffle the ears from the outside noise
And find the infinite, waiting patiently
To be your one true friend…….
ooh those two word-combos!
ooh so good to hear!
ooh to feel remembered!
What of the ultimate two words!
These are not spoken
IN and OUT
As each divine BREATH
Who is it that cares to remember you
It’s the One sending
The ultimate gift,
The one sending
So, thank you my friends
As we remember each other
On each one of our special birth days,
And learn to remember and connect
To the Ultimate friend
