Lovesongs & Sutras
Song of an Angel

Hope ,where are you ..all forgotten ....the last straw slipping away
dreams where are you…all forgotten .....by the first light of the day
no time to hold on
what can come will be gone
like the song of angel that comes unexpectedly to catch the ear
the song of an angel that comes when you’re open to hear

the songs of forgiveness the songs of delight
the songs that have reached us in the darkest of night
while the flame that is burning the sound that is heard
comes only from one source alone
ooh... send me an angel

You and I
Happy is the moment when we sit together
with two forms , two faces yet one soul
you and I
the flowers they will sing forever
the birds will sing their eternal song
the moment we enter the garden
you and I
the stars of heaven will come out to watch us
and we will show them the light of the full moon
you and I
no more thought of you
no more thought of I ,just this precious moment
no more thought of you
no more thought of I, no more thought
joyous alive free of mind ,
you and I
all the bright winged birds of heaven
will swoop down to drink from our sweet water
the tears of our laughter
you and I
what a miracle of fate us sitting here
even at the opposite end of the earth
we are still together you and I

Loose yourself
You’re the call of the rising sun
you’re the light of the full moon
you’re the seeker you’re the goal , the seeking itself
blazing like a fire in every heart

there was a time we lost ourselves in others
a time we ate the best food
there was a time we relied on intellect
a time we looked for future
but all this had no value in the end
For a mouthful of food and bitter herbs
we went everywhere ,made so many plans
one day it was Rome the next day Africa,
we entered a raging battlefield,.. for what?
a few crumbs of bread

Now stay with this silence a while
I once ran toward the knowledge of this world
now the papers are packed the pens are broken
Oh, waiter ,bring on wine

Knock and he will open the door
vanish ..he will shine like the sun
fall .. and he will raise you to heaven
become nothing, he will turn you into everything

Loose yourself in this love, I swear there is no other way

I’ll meet you there

All day and all night music
a quiet bright song
if it fades, we fade

Out beyond ideas of doing right or wrong
there is a field, I meet you there
when the soul lies down in this grass
the world is too full to talk about
I’ll meet you there

Out beyond ideas of being right or wrong
there is a field I meet you there
Ideas and language even the phrase: each other
does not make any sense at all
I’ll meet you there

Totally

I like to connect with you somehow
and I know the only moment is now
so if you want to sing along come pick a tune
I’m sure you’ll pick it up soon.

-Totally , water flows totally
wind blows totally
fire burns totally
-The bird flies gently on the wind it makes no effort at all
-Totally surrendered, totally at ease,
totally enraptured with what is

I let what comes come ,
I let what goes go,
I remain in the emptiness free
I let go of any thought of who i think I am
I remain in the emptiness free
I let go grasping for experience
I let go the need to understand
I remain in the emptiness free

I am freedom I am peace I am not that ,I am not this
I live in the garden of the wondrous one
where all these words turn into silence


At home

Take me into the spheres of music, I’m at home there

Take me into the spheres of silence, I at home there

Take me into this very moment, I am at home here

At home, finally at home


Shimmering Rays
The world dances around the sun
the morning light breaks spinning up with delight
how can anybody, touched by this love
not dance like a weeping willow

Like sun shine it will
like the atoms spin he will
like the breeze of spring love sways the earth gently
every branch that is not dead dance it will

Your love has filled me with a fire
no one could ever know
your gaze enchanted my heart with a poem
noone could ever write

The Sufi is dancing from dusk ‘toil dawn
like the shimmering rays of the sun

Rhythm of our hearts

Love and gratitude is our calling now, oh beloved
The light of your face illuminates the Universe
and from this light in all ages you have taken form
you shape the destiny of every soul
and every night you bring another joy another celebration

You’re in the rhythm of our hearts now
A thousand hearts of gratitude
receive the touch of your light
the dancing lovers joyous call echoes in waves of delight
You will dance forever as the rhythm of our hearts

I rejoice
The morning light breaks through the clouds
the birds are jubilating out loud
all of existence takes a moment of the day
to send good vibrations and love your way
and I join into the great flow of delight

There’s wings attached to my heart today
they lift the spirit make me sing and play
I bow to you in gratitude and I rejoice
I take this chance to make a joyful noise
Thank you for the love you make me feel

Now I wish you Happy Birthday
from the bottom of my heart
may your every moment be in essence a new start
laughter happiness and goodness
may they be your closest friends
and may the golden light within you shine forever without end

I rejoice in waves of your love
I rejoice in the stars above
I rejoice in the roaring thunder of your song

It’s a blessing

The great spring has come
your sweet air blowing through the city
,the country, the gardens and the deserts is a blessing
Caught in this body we look for a sight of the soul
Remember what the prophet said:
One glimpse is a Blessing

There’s no I only you
There’s no you only Love
All of nature swings in delight singing without tongues
listening without ears. it’s a blessing
The brilliant sun the golden light that shines in every heart
for heavens earth and creatures all; what a blessing
I bow to you for the dust of your feet is the crown on my head
as I walk toward you ,every step I take is a blessing
The heart can’t wait to speak of this
the soul is kissing the earth
whirling twirling, giving thanks ;what a blessing
Fill me with the wine of your silence
let it soak my every pour
for the inner splendor it reveals is a blessing

I’m here to wake up to this day
I’m here to dance the clouds away
I’m here to live and sing my song
and disappear into the Blessed one

Who am I

What is to be done oh brother
I do not know who I am
What is to be done oh sister
I do not know who I am
I’m not a Christian, not a Jew, I’m not a Buddhist or a Hindu..
I’m not the king nor the beggar, I’m not of substance nor of form
I’m not from India not from china,
I'm not from the east, not from the west
I’m not from this world or the next,
I’m not from heaven not from hell.
I’ve cast away all differences now I see the two worlds as one
I call ,I seek ,I know I am only one
Now I know you and you alone
Drunk from the wine of the cup of love
the two worlds have slipped from my reach
I have nothing left to do here save drink your wine and dance with delight
Oh I’m so drunk on your love ;I have lost this entire world
Besides the sweet taste of your wine
I have no tale left to tell

My mouth may be open and words may come out
but you are every sweet song of mine

So do not think that the drop alone becomes the ocean
the ocean too becomes the drop!!

I call the spirit

I call the spirit of the night
I call the spirit of the day
I call the spirit of the unseen
I call the spirit of the way I call the spirit of love

I call the spirit of the sun/the moon/ the desert/the jungle I call the spirit of love
fire/ water air earth I call the spirit of love
wolf /lion /ant /leopard / bear/ elephant/ the wild/ the untamed /forests I call the spirit of love
lovers /warriors /thinkers singers dancers farmers I call the spirit of love
child/ innocence /old man/ old mother/ great loving father I call the spirit of love
unknown /uncharted / open /the unknowable I call the spirit of love
mystics /blessed ones /golden beings
silence/ peace /understanding/ courage I call the spirit of love
may we all come together
and take the experience of life
to a next higher level of being

Habib Allah
I say: my eyes --- you say : look for him
I say: my ears---- you say : listen
I say: my heart-- You say what’s inside
I say: my longing----I say: my longing
You say: That’s all you need

Nayaz
Beloved Lord ,Almighty God
Through the rays of the sun
Through the waves of the air
Through the all pervading life in space
Purify ad revivify us and we pray
Heal this body heart and soul Amen

In Love
Koan

What arises will one day vanish
so I am asking ,what does not change
what is continuous,what is eternal ,
what transcends this human play

What is a Quiet mind,love unconditional
what keeps in balance the stars in the sky
what is continuous,what is eternal
where is our true home ,who am I

I let go of all these questions now
and turn to silence for a reply
and I am showered by a power
that is vaster than the sky


Songs of the ages ,light upon light
carry our blessings into the night

Crossroads
When you adopt the viewpoint
that all that exists within your circle of life
is nothing but another| part of you

When you come to the conclusion
that there is no one who exists,who is not a part of you

You will wisely extend to yourself
an unconditional love that will be
the light of your day,the light of your night
the light that lightens up this world of ours

When you come to the crossroad
where you can choose which road to take
for the highest good of all

when you stand at the seashore
and your boat is ready to take of and sail
to follow an inner call

You will wisely extend to yourself
an unconditional love that will be
the light of your day,the light of your night
the light that lightens up this world of ours


Window to your heart
Today you revealed yourself to me
telling stories of your inner and outer world
You told me you are doing fine just fine ,
but the longing in your voice said : I want to be free
There was grace sometimes, sometimes elation
there was pain sometimes and hopelessness too
I listened to you and I felt you so deeply and all I could say was :
I love whatever you do but I wanted to say

Stop the words now and open the window to your heart
and let the spirit fly in and out ,out and in ......

There was grace sometimes sometimes elation
there was pain sometimes and hopelessness too
If you make friends with these guests,with all comings and goings
you’re at home in the moment embracing it all

Stop the words now and open the window to your heart
and let the spirit fly in and out ,out and in ......

At a time like this
Come together in a circle here today
to find the heart from where we love and where we pray
from where we discover the endless source of grace
from where we meet ourselves in each other in this place

The past has done it’s mission,it has brought us here today
the past has done it’s work for us forever
the future is waiting at the crossroads patientlyH
in this moment there is nothing that can keep away
the tenderness and love that we share

At a time like this when all is said and done
and there is nothing to be lost or won
at a time like this when grace comes showering down
and all you can say is Haleluia

You can let go now and rest in your breath
you c an find out what truly matters
the future is waiting at the crossroads patiently
in this moment there is nothing that can keep away
the tenderness and love that we share

At a time like this when all is said and done
and there is nothing to be lost or won

and all you can say is Haleluia


Wild Rose
Hello,dear friend, It’s so good to see your face again
to see myself in you and to find out what you have been up to

You’ve been living oh,so far away and yet you where so close
your essence like a wild rose in the playground of my heart

Time cannot divide, and cannot reunite
what has never been apart
We go our separate ways it seems
yet we’re connected in our dreams
and the mystery of the heart

I do not know all the details of the stories you have spun
who has lost and who has won
and it doesn't matter at all
tender loving is the fire that has kept our souls alive
beyond ecstasy and strive connected through the heart

Time cannot divide, and cannot reunite
what has never been apart
We go our separate ways it seems
yet we’re connected in our dreams
and the mystery of the heart

In your eyes

The flame that never dies
the jewel without a prize
the truth beyond all lies
I mean the luminous inner light I see in your eyes

The face of the eternal friend
the song without an end
the sky so open and wide
I mean the luminous inner light I see in your eyes

Just one look iHnto your eyes
now I’m forever falling into the silence inside

The lighthearted walk alone
when the longing has found a home
in the heart of hearts it abides
I mean the luminous inner light I see in your eyes

Just one look into your eyes
now I’m forever falling into the silence inside

Be welcome here
be welcome here ,be welcome here
whoever you are ,be welcome here
even if you have broken your vows a thousand times or more
be welcome here

may you be in peace may you be at ease
may you be free from all suffering and may you be in peace
and may gods grace shower upon you
and may you find the peace within and live your truth

And you’ll see the day will come
when with elation you will greet
yourself at your own door
to give your heart back to yourself
to the stranger, who has loved you all your life

be welcome here ,be welcome here
whoever you are ,be welcome here
even if you have broken your vows a thousand times or more
be welcome here

Forever here

He was loved he was adored regarded highly by all
even worshipped as a messenger from above
He was simple he was pure he was silent and vast
he was an incarnation of love
The mountain was his friend and his beloved
his inspiration and soul
he was one with the mountain and so is he now
I am forever here
He was lying on his deathbed his body was spent
it was dying everyone knew
People around him were sad because they thought
when his body is gone he is gone too
Where do you think I am going?
The mountain is my home always
Why do you believe I am leaving?
I am forever here
If you go and visit the mountain today
and listen to the wind in the trees
or now,if you look a little deeper into silence

Just one glimpse
evening sun a gentle breeze golden light reflected in trees
we have fallen into a place where everything is music
breath the air, drink the wine
feel the breeze and see the light
of the one through whose hands galaxies run like beads
upon a string of love

Just one glimpse of the inner sky
and the walls of desperation tumble down
and we move with the spirit of kindred heart
and goodness to all beings alive

there is so many ways to kneel down and kiss the ground in thankfulness

Watch the dust grains moving in the light
near the window ,their dance is our dance
though we rarely hear the inward music
we’re dancing to it anyway
directed by the one who teaches us the pure joy of the sun
our music master

Just one glimpse of the inner sky
and the walls of desperation tumble down
and we move with the spirit of kindred heart
and goodness to all beings alive


The breeze at dawn
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you don’t go back to sleep
you must ask for what you really want don’t go back to sleep
people are going back and forth between the door sill
where the two worlds meet
the breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you don’t go back to sleep




Open to Grace
INTO YOUR HANDS

I bow to God in gratitude and I find the moon is busy doing the same.
I bow to God in great happiness and I learn from where the suns
all borrow their light.
I bow to the friend in deep reverence and discover a marvelous secret carried in the air:
That this whole Universe is just as blessed and loved as I,
just as wildly lost in this Wonderful Holy Dance
at every step gladly singing Hallelujah!
I hear the voice of every creature and plant -- singing the Beloveds name
Every star and sun and galaxy-- singing the Beloveds name
All of God’s creatures in the bosom of love -- singing the Beloved’s name
Thy will be done
Thy kingdom come
Into your hands I lay my spirit
into your hands I lay my life!

JUST AS IT IS
Tread softly, all earth is holy ground,
from the core to the skies.
Imagine you could look with seeing eyes.

This spot we stand on is paradise;
where lost has been found
and truth has become alive.
Tread softly as you enter the glorious Lotus Paradise.

There is a sun rising in my heart,
melting the age old ice that kept me apart.
There is a moon rising in this awesome glory,
that shines on gratitude , a “bow-down” gratitude,
a deep appreciation of This! Just as it is

You and I have spoken all these words,
but; for the way we have to face,
words are no preparation.
There’s no getting ready, other than grace

There is a sun rising in my heart,
melting the age old ice that kept me apart.
There is a moon rising in this awesome glory
that shines on gratitude, a “bow-down” gratitude,
a deep appreciation of This! Just as it is.
THE INVITATION

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your hearts desire.
It doesn't interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
IT doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon.
I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals; or if you have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain!
I want to know if you can sit with pain--- mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, ---mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, realistic, or to remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true.
I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal, and not betray your own soul.
It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where, or what, or with whom you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you from within when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself; and if you truly love the company you keep in the empty moments.

ORIAH, Mountain Dreamer, Indian Elder

CHILDREN OF CHANCE
Remember to be gentle with yourself.
Be gentle with others.
We are all children of chance.
And, no one can say why some fields will blossom,
while others lay brown in the August sun.
We are all children of chance.
Care for those around you. Look past your differences.
Their dreams are no less than yours, their choices no more easily made.
And Give.
Give in any way you can, of whatever you possess.
To give is to love.
To withhold is to wither.
Care less for the harvest than for how it is shared,
and your life will have meaning,
and your heart will have peace.
Kent Nerburn,


SOARING

When you live in love you are a flute through whose heart
the whispering of the hours turn into music.
And what is it to live in love? It is to weave the cloth
with threads drawn from your heart.
Remaining in the recognition of the gift of love,
you fly through this life like an eagle.

and you are soaring up into the sky
without sadness or regret,
without any residue of clinging.

Even if death were to fall upon you like lightening,
you must be ready to die.
without sadness and regret,
without any residue of clinging for what is left behind.
Remaining in the recognition of the absolute view
you leave this life like an eagle

and you are soaring up into the sky
let the beauty that we love, be revealed by who we are!


FREE AND EASY
Happiness cannot be found through great effort and willpower;
but is already present, in open relaxation and letting go.
Don’t strain yourself, there is nothing to do or undo.
Whatever arises in the body mind has no real importance at all.
Why identify with it and become attached to it?
Why pass judgment upon it and ourselves?

Far better to simply let the entire game happen on it’s own,
springing up and falling back like waves,
without changing or manipulating anything,
and notice how everything vanishes and reappears,
magically again and again, time without end.

Don’t believe in the reality of good and bad experiences;
they are like the weather, like rainbows in the sky.
Wanting to grasp the ungraspable, you exhaust yourself in vain.
As soon as you open and relax, ( this tight fist of grasping)
infinite space is there - open and inviting.
Make use of this spaciousness, this freedom and natural ease.
Don’t search any further. Don’t go into the tangled jungle,
looking for the the great awakened elephant,
who is already resting at home, in front of your own hearth
Nothing to do or undo. Nothing to force, nothing to want, and nothing missing Emaho! Marvelous!
Everything happens by itself---- Free and easy!
A spontaneous Vajra Song by
Ven.Lama Gendun Rinpoche


NAMASTE

Absorbed in the wondrous and timeless compassion somehow
lies the simple truth of this instance, the magic of now.

In the silence of this moment
beyond the thunder and lightening of the mind,
is a precious pearl to be discovered,
that I pray we all will find.

Here in the bright light of this moment, a reminder simple and clear:
that all that truly matters is already here.

I am blessed before I have a reason.
I am full of love, even before the sky can greet the sun and raise the moon.
My dear friends, we’ve been in love with God for very long.
We have always been blessed!

In the silence of this moment,
beyond the thunder and lightening of the mind,
is a precious pearl to be discovered
that I pray we all will find.

Here in the bright light of this moment, a reminder simple and clear,
that all that truly matters is already here!


JAWS OF THE TIGER
We’ve come to a place where nothing needs to be done.
We are waiting here my friend only to see that we never left home;
that we’ve been gathered here always, together forever, even if our dreams have taken us far from this place.

How many times have we parted you and I? ----- the stars and the sky?
Searching like a child who leaves home, looking for love.

How many times have we tried to sail to the horizon of a dream
when we are the sea itself? Always in rapture!

The story of running comes to an end
in the silence of a shimmering star.
You can run, but you cannot escape.
Wherever you go, there you are.

You’ve got your head in the jaws of the tiger
when you enter the stillness of your heart.
You’ve got your head in the jaws of the tiger
when you let yourself love you exactly as you are,
and you hear a voice within say: “Welcome home!”

WILD GEESE

You don’t have to be good.
You don’t have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine .

Meanwhile, the world goes on.
Meanwhile, the sun and the clear pebbles of rain
are moving across the landscapes
over (the prariies and deep trees) mountain and rivers.

Meanwhile, the wild geese, high in the clear blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely;
the world offers itself to your imagination----
Calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting,
over and over again----
Announcing your place in the family of things.


IN EVERY HEART
The present moment is my true home.
The present moment is where I belong.
And the miracle is not to walk on water,
but to walk on this green earth.
The greatest of all miracles is just to be alive, now.

Peace is available now. Peace is available here.
You learn to taste it; and it gives you back your Self.
Peace is available now. Peace is available here.
You learn to touch it; and it fills you with love.

May all beings be free from danger.
may all beings be free from fear.
may all beings be happy.
may all beings be in peace.


Om Shanti, Shanti Om

May the fire of love ignite us.
May your golden song delight us.
May the spirit of your grace live in every heart

On a Breeze of Wonder

Only this moment, only this moment!
Pure in it’s essence, open and free
Only this moment, only this moment ....
open empty and free
The thunder in the sky , the rythm of the sea
The softness of the air, the beauty of the tree
The fragrance of the garden speaks to me.
I stop for a while and listen,
and let the night sky sing me a song...
embracing the unknown, drinking the moment,
leaving behind rights and wrongs.
I’m invited to a place within, where even stillness and glory cease to exist,
and the stars in their vastness, grace
the traveler with a holy kiss.
In the garden of the night,... a breeze of wonder
The thunder in the sky ......
My spirit is lifted to heaven, at the sound of no return.
The garden is like an open hand holding the flowers as the evening colors turn.
I am merely a guest born into this world, glimpsing the secrets, that let it all be. But at the sound of your sweet song, my heart is soaring free.
The thunder in the sky, the rhythm of the sea,
The softness of the air, the beauty of the tree,
The fragrance of the garden speaks to me.
The silence of the mountain, and my heart soars free.
Oh, my heart is soaring free....
On a breeze of wonder.


Prayer of St. Francis

Lord make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where the is hatred,
let me sow love.
Where there is injury, let me sow pardon.
Where there is doubt, let me sow faith.
Where there is despair, let me sow hope.
Where there is darkness, let me sow light.
Where there is sadness, let me sow joy.
Halleluja
Oh , Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled, as to console...
to be understood, as to understand...
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in forgiving that we are forgiven.
It is in fully living that we honor Thy majesty.

Let it be a Blessing


What a gift it is, just to be alive...
to love what is given...
to know that I am living in grace.
What a gift it is to live in this light...
to welcome the sun as part of the One....
grateful and free
Let it be a blessing,........
Wherever two or more of you
are gathered in the name of That which loves,
that which is compassionate,
that which liberates,
Great blessings shower on you.
Great blessings radiate from you.
Govinda Om , Gopala, Gopala

Let it be a blessing !

Heart of Kindness

It is time to listen to the voice within that calls you
It is time of resurrection.
It is time of grace, time of generosity,
Time to open the doors of perception.
Time to welcome back a long forgotten friend,
and to feel we are held in the arms of the secret One we love.
I place my mind before the mirror of eternity.
I place my soul into the brilliance of glory.
I place my trust into the hands of the Divine.
I place my trust into the heart of kindness.

Innocia vara vaya, Emaho !
(truth lives in the innocent heart.
How marvellous ! )

Dive deep, Oh my friend, dive deep
into your own being.
Discover the pearl as you go.
Dive deep, every moment!
It’s time to welcome back a long forgotten friend,
and to feel we are held in the arms of the secret One we love.





River of Blessings

Because

For a moment, you and I saw each other’s spirit shine.
We looked behind each other’s eyes, shattering barriers of time.
Beyond mundane and the sublime, we had a glimpse of the divine,
Moving still like rivers meet, in the space where stars collide.
Now that we are inspired by the sparkle of stardust,
We can celebrate all the way home.
Now that we have tasted the peace and silence of deep trust,
Let us drink from the unknown.
Because there is nothing outside of love’s body,
I keep showing reverence to all things.
Because there is nothing outside of love’s body,
I savor what this moment brings.
Because there is nothing outside of love’s body,
I stop all struggle with what is.
Because there is nothing outside of love’s body,

It’s all in her hands, it’s all in his hands.
Undo sera gunomalega, uno sera gunomalega
Because love is pristine, the highs the lows and in-betweens
It will always be a mystery to me.
Because I feel invited, in awe and delighted,
My heart is soaring free.
Because all our stories and all our glories are woven into a wondrous design
That appears like a picture in this amazing mixture of how our lives intertwine!




May You Be at Peace

The eye can’t see it, the ear can’t hear it.
Still, there is an awe-inspiring sense of being connected to the wondrous source
From where mysteries arise.

May you find the key. May you be free.
May your heart forever be at peace
And return to the radiant source of all.

May you be at peace. May you be at ease.
And through the blessing of your heart, may the world find peace.
May life’s blessings fall upon you.
May peace be the haven you come to.
May you listen to love’s heartbeat,
As you rest in it’s silent embrace.


Ocean Ride

I am full of love tonight.
Come look into my eyes.
My Dear, let’s go off sailing on a long ocean ride.

I celebrate you being alive. I honor you completely.
My heart stands in ovation.
Small gestures in fleeting moments weave
The fabric of enchantment and affection.
Let’s weave a little magic!
The ancient peace inside us is asking to be lived;
So we step aside and receive the gift.

I am full of love tonight.
Come look into my eyes.
My Dear, let’s go of sailing on a long ocean ride.

We sing a song about the mystery, the falling leaves of time
About the hollow bamboo, the orchard and the vine.
We soar on the waves of goodness, embracing what we love,
The tender touch of silence and diamonds in the rough.
The ancient peace inside us is asking to be lived;
So we step aside and receive the gift.
The invitation is to be who we are.


Moon at Midnight

What is this glorious sound, this outrageous laughter,
Budding in our hearts, budding in our hearts?
It is the glorious sound of a soul waking up!

What is this colorful light, the glow behind appearance, that lifts our hearts so easily?
It is the glorious light of a soul waking up!
O Birther of the Universe, from whom the river of blessing flows to all, you soften the ground of our being and you carve a space within us where Thy glorious presence can abide.
Here, where you can abide--
What is this call from within?
A tender loving thunder, that guides us all way.
It is the glorious call of a soul waking up!

What this overflowing joy, this falling into rapture,
Living in our hearts, living in our hearts?
It is the wondrous joy of a soul waking up!

O Birther of the Universe, from whom the river of blessing flows to all,
You soften the ground of our being and you carve a space within us
Where thy glorious presence can abide.
Watching the moon at midnight, I knew myself completely;
No part left out! No part left out!



It’s all about Love

It’s all about love.
It’s all about being present.
It’s all about giving space to the grace from the place inside
Where there’s no one there.

It’s all about trust .
It’s all about allowing.
It’s all about being true, being new, living through the place inside
Where there’s no one there, where living love resides.
It’s all about Now--- this doorway into presence.
It’s all about the way that you are, if you live from the place inside,
Where there’s no one there.
Hallelujah, hale, hale, hale
The sun is rising in the heart. Hallelujah!


It’s all about seeing that there is nowhere to go,
Nothing to attain, nothing to be blamed,
Nothing to fight for, and nothing to defend.
It’s all about the wine of now---
Drinking it, and to allow the full impact of
No beginning and no end.
Hallelujah, hale, hale, hale
It’s all about being--- deeply accepting all that is--
The lightness of being at ease, and living in peace from a place inside,
Where there is no one there.
It’s all about a new day--giving yourself to it fully,
And taking a silent vow to be here, to be now, in a place inside,
Where there is no one there.
The sun is rising in the heart, Hallelujah!



A Thousand Luminous Secrets

Hamdore samdore hamdore hamdo—Hu amadeli kama dulu ja
Let’s turn loose the golden falcons, so that they can meet in the sky
Where our spirits belong.
What a joy when they spread their velvet wings and ride on the wind
So free, and ride on the wind so free.
On the razor’s edge, between life and death, there is a fire.
The leaping of this wondrous flame lets our hearts soar higher.
Ou amadeli kama duluja
Write a thousand luminous secrets upon your heart tonight--
A thousand reasons to celebrate the glow in each other’s eyes.

Mari deme tamo desata, mari dem tama desata,
Le lamo havorima, espa havorima que
mari de tamo re di satamole, mari de tamo re di satamole,
marerta ama dela varitee

Let us walk with dignity, in perfect stillness, great excitement
And in deep prayer-- all at once.
Let’s bring out the instruments that call the heart to live and dance,
When desert winds turn gardens into battlefronts.
Polished Teakwood, strong silk rope, golden hammers,
Silver saws and corduroy---
You carry all ingredients to turn this existence into joy!
Let’s turn loose our golden falcons, so that they can meet in the sky,
Where our spirits belong.

Let stillness arise in our hearts while the unreal is falling apart.
Let love be the space where we meet. Let us fly again!
Let’s be still. Come home to the One.
Live the peace where our spirits come from.
Let us live a cherished life. Let us fly again!



The River
You can sit here right now-- don’t say a thing.
You can use these soft words as a pillow for your head.

Let us be like two falling stars in the morning sky.
No one can deny, we’re holding hands with God!

The voice of the river that has entered into the ocean,
Now laughs and sings with the clouds, with the wind.
Allah , Allah
I hear the secret voice from the river: “ Let go, let go, let go!”
Om mane padme hum
Jai Ram OM


Secret Sky

And so, I fly toward a secret sky again,
And cause a hundred veils to fall this moment now.
I praise the loving hands that have taken me this way--
Their tender guidance I gladly allow.

You reveal to me my home, here I dance, here I roam.
You keep lightly throwing logs into the fire of my soul.

I am dancing gently--sometimes wildly at the edge of time,
While breathing this air of living love,
I am moving to a rhythm and a guidance unconfined.
I am walking the earth with a grateful heart.

I have laughter in my veins, and a soul beyond complaints.
I feel gratitude again. Salty tears fall into sand.

Now I walk lightly within this inner landscape I explored
I welcome the blessing of the unknown.
I did not come here of my own accord.
Who ever brought me here will have to take me home.

I have nothing left to say. A moment of silence is my prayer.
Words fade like clouds into the sky, to join the source from where they arise.
Love prevails-- truth unveils-- secret sky-- Here I fly ‘til the morning light.


The Shaman

Peace is every moment!
The shining red sun in my heart--
Each flower smiles with me.
How green, how fresh, all that grows.
How cool the wind blows.
Peace is every moment.
It turns the endless path to joy.

Breathing in, I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the presence, with curiosity,
Feeling open, feeling free.
Gratefully connected--turning the endless path to joy.
The Shaman takes a walk down by the river.
Surrounded by the colorful abundance of the day,
He stops, and stands, and listens.
He feels the air, the sun, and feels the urge to pray.
His words come from a tender heart on fire.
They pour from him like radiant tongues of sheer delight.
(You abide in me and I abide in you)
Have lost my smile, but don’t worry,
The dandelion has it! Hakumona Tulele
Inside the body, within the heart, there is a garden of flowers.
I take my seat on the petals of the lotus and gaze at the beauty and power.
I listen with the inward ear to the music of the soul that is teaching all of creation: Hallelujah!
I am gone like a ray within light--embodied weightlessness in flight—
Riding on a lotus blossom, floating in the murky waters, shining with an inner glow!





Let Silence Sing

Be still, and hear silence sing.
I listen deeply and I allow--to only being with this moment now.
I recognize the One inside that is present every moment,
And meet the wondrous light of life.
I turn to the depth of my soul now, where I hear and feel silence sing.
As I walked along the lakeshore, I fell into a sense of peace.
A quiet voice inside said: “No more.
Let me stop and listen deeper into this!”
Silence is a doorway. Love is a key.
No name, no form, no word conveys the silence that embraces me always.
Oh come and abide in the heart.
Behind all things, silence is an open invitation.
Be still, and hear silence sing!



The Arms of the Beloved

May your dreams rise up to welcome you.
May the luminous force delight and support you.
May life’s ever changing face bring a deeper opening within you!
May you walk in beauty and grace--available to the wondrous mystery of it all!
May you ride the crest of the wave, as love claims you as it’s own.
So many blessing falling like rain!
May all the good things come to a bloom!
But most of all, may you be aware they are happening to you!
May you be an instrument--an instrument of freedom and peace!
So many blessings are showering.
May you let them touch you!
May you receive this breath while falling open.
May you feel the blessing!
Haya haya,haya om raya
Here in this garden, I am touched by silence.
It is the silence that holds it all!
I feel amazed and broken open--hearing eternity’s gentle call.
There is something inside me letting go, and I am held in the arms of the Beloved again!



Touched to the Core

The Moon was perched like a golden hawk on a pine tree.
I know the moon was like me-- touched to core by God.
The stars in distant galaxies look like ecstatic expressions of art.
I know the stars are like me--touched to core by God.
The dolphins surfing the ocean waves, exuberant in their leaps of joy--
I know the dolphins are like me, touched to the core by God.
Amera di jouet amera di jouet ,
I am a Buddha. I am a Buddha.
I am he whom I love, and he whom I love is I.
I am a Buddha. I am a Buddha!

The water in the waterfall-- falling a thousand feet unto itself--
I know the water is like me, touched to core by God.
The dancer in the music’s hand, moving like she is lit from within--
I know the dancer is like me, touched to core by God.
Amera di jouet amera di jouet,
I am a Buddha. I am a Buddha.
I am he whom I love, and he whom I love is I .
I am a Buddha. I am a Buddha!

The tree in the alley, sounds from a distant valley--
I know it all is like me, touched to the core by God.
The Moon was perched, like a golden hawk on a pine tree.
I know the moon was like, me touched to core by God.
Who lives inside these walls, within these splendid halls?--
The simple grace and splendor. Wake me up and I remember.
I am touched to the core!
Amera di jouet amera di jouet
I am a Buddha, I am a Buddha!





Hallelujah

Halleluja

Letting joy and delight be the inner guide
Letting sighs of forgiveness fill the darkness of night
Letting the present moment fuel the flame inside
Letting joy and delight be the inner guide

-I can tell by the way that you move:
you’re delighted

L’ah illaha illalah

You're a Flower:

You’re a flower of a friend you’re a lover of the sky
You’re a waterfall of music
Pouring rainbows over me.

I am amazed how love grows.
I am amazed how love shows
I am amazed by the loving hands,
That hold All throughout the lands

I get to love you in so many ways
I’m walking with you for some wonderful days
You’ve got Freedom move inside you with invisible strings
And you keep listening to the songs that it sings
You keep on trusting the loving wings of your flight
You are gaining strength from the darkest of night
You have got laughter in your pocket a handful of delight
Dispel beliefs that loosed their hold on you.

On derissa di amo delay

You bless my life
You’re a flower of a friend you’re a lover of the sky
You’re a waterfall of music
Pouring rainbows over me.


Here to wake up

The brilliant sun the golden light, that shines in every heart
For heavens earth and creatures all
What a blessing

The heart can’t wait to speak of this the soul is kissing the earth
Whirling twirling giving thanks
What a blessing

You’re the fire inside
You’re the dream in the night
You’re the rhythm and swing
In the songs that I sing

I am here to wake up to this day
I am here to dance the cloud away
I’m here to live and sing my song
And disappear into the blessed one.

-There’s no I, only Love

All of nature swings in delight,
what a blessing just to be alive

Hollow Bamboo

Like a hollow bamboo

And when the hollow bamboo
Becomes a flute
Let the wind blow, ‘cause it is good
The Whole starts playing on it

Living openhanded
Being undefended
Shadows are befriended
Letting go pretending
Feeling free to abandon
Doing nothing to mend it
In the Open ended


If you don’t fight with life

If you don’t fight with life,
Life simply helps you it takes you on it’s shoulders, it takes you.
-Hare Hare Rama Jai
-Be yourself and nothing more
-Rama jai

Inner Lover

I’m talking to my inner lover
And I say: Why such a rush?

The guest who makes my eyes so bright
He dwells inside me day and night
He makes this life a mystery
And when I feel him I feel free

Don’t let a chance like this go by my friend

I’m talking to my inner lover
And I say: Why such a rush?

I say to the wanting-creature inside me
What is the river you want to cross?
I see no river, no boat, no boatman,
I see no gain and no loss
Just throw away all thoughts of imaginary things
And stand firm in that which you are.

Light upon Light

Hallelujah

Light upon Light
Sound upon Sound
Love upon Love
God is the Light of Heaven and Earth

So amazing:

Dancing lightly under the sun
Discovering light in everyone
Making a joyful noise toward the one

Thank you for the sun
thank you for the moon
thank you for the food that is filling my spoon
Thank you for the love, arising in my heart
My deepest faith is growing
My heart is overflowing
I am living my best life

So I let it all go:

Like a falling leaf I kiss the past Good by
I turn my gaze and I look at the sky
I start to cherish each single breath and I feel connected

Letting go is an art and a skill
I pray that I can let go at will
So I can meet each moment anew and feel connected

So I let it all go and I’m living
There’s nobody here, but Life’s giving
The pure clear water from it’s well
The silence of the stars

Be a light unto yourself

I let go of what keeps me away from the beauty and the gift of this day
I let go and let it all be
Just being present with what is
Just being free.

Water of the River:

..and the water of the river is gently
flowing on

let the past go astray,
let the future fade
let the moment arise


White Cloud:

We are moving the way of the white cloud






Enchanted

Every life

Every being in this world has a dream of itself
Every woman every man has a dream-
A truth to remember
Every friend and every foe within their heart of hearts
Is a dream is dream is a dream

Loose your mind and come to your senses
Dream the direction you are going.
Loose your mind and come to senses.
Trust your inner knowing.

Every Life needs a season of wholeness and grace
When ease, trust and let-go are welcome,
When it meets the Eternal within every
Face and it touches the source where it comes from,
When it blooms like a flower blooms so fragile and strong
Surprised by it’s own unfolding,
When it lives like a river flows so liquid and free,
Sustained by the vision it’s holding.

All I hear is the call of the Beloved
All I see is the face of the Beloved
All I feel is the touch of the Beloved NOW!

Every Life needs a season of wholeness and grace
When ease, trust and let-go are welcome,
When it meets the Eternal within every
Face and it touches the source where it comes from,
May you bloom like a flower blooms so fragile and strong
Amazed by your own unfolding,
May you live like a river flows so liquid and free,
Sustained by the path you are molding

Let us remind each other of this:
Follow your bliss

Great Natural Peace

Rest in peace this exhausted mind, rest in great natural peace.

I see you walking in sunshine,
Walking in beauty with a light mind,
Fulfilling the dreams that you have
And your heart is guiding the way.
I see you living with passion and grace.
I see you loving from an eternal place,
Befriending the world completely
And your wandering soul is coming home.

Rest in peace this exhausted mind rest in great natural peace

I rarely let the word No escape from my mouth because it is so clear to my soul
That God is shouting yes! Yes! Yes! to every movement of every part of the whole
To all creation to every man
To every grass at every chance
God is shouting “yes! Yes! Yes!
Come and join me in the dance!”

Hare OM

By the river

I meet you down by the river in the garden where you live
You have been coming here more and more over the years
And made this the sanctuary of your secret joys and tears-
A place where the Great Spirit abides a garden where love resides-
In the garden where you live.
The last time I saw you were so fragile so radiant and so clear.
While your body was in agony your heart felt amazingly near.
Your eyes sparkled with delight,
So much joy was present. You where dancing inside.
In the garden where you live-
In the place where the Great Spirit abides, a garden where love resides.

I meet you by the river
I don’t mean when or if
I meet you in the garden
I meet you where you live
On the edge of time and this is where we meet-
We meet you in the garden where you live

I meet you like we’ve always met, in the love that is between us,
Not a moment away from here,
In gratitude and wonder in the dark blue flame that is burning in our hearts-
Not a moment away from Now.
I meet you by the river I meet you in the rhythm of my heart.

Love swing

In the arms of the secret one we love

It is time to put up a love swing
Tie the body tie the mind
So that they swing between the arms of
The secret one we love

There is a secret one inside us
The planets of all galaxies swing through his hands like beads
Just look with luminous eyes

There is a time for everything,
Let this time be now. Let it be now!

How does the enchanting rose ever open its blossoming face
And offer to the whole wide world it’s beauty and it’s grace?
How does it happen?
It must feel the encouragement of light against its skin,
Otherwise we all remain too frightened in the place we are in.
That’s how it happens, Yeah!

Take this pen and write a letter of resignation
To all your fears and all your sadness.
Let your heart feel gratitude!
The past is past. Write a letter to invite a future
That arises out of this moment’s magic.
Let it be filled with gratitude!
Everyone is God speaking.
Why not be polite and listen ------really listen to her.

Nothing compares to holding the hands of the Beloved One in Silence.

Take this pen and write a letter of appreciation
For all the gifts, splendor and beauty that surround you and bless your day.
Don’t forget every insignificant detail!
Always remember we are just visitors here
In this abundant garden of the sun.

Hamdera Mujaison
Nothing compares to holding the hands of the Beloved One in Silence.
Practice compassion

Practice Compassion

If you are absorbed in Samsara,
Engaged in judging your neighbor and yourself,
If you want your days to bring you happiness,
Or you are looking for the magic of a wishing well,
If you are ready to leave your obsession,
Practice compassion.

Awaken the qualities of Love, Forgiveness, Wisdom and Compassion,
So we discover for ourselves the unique happiness
Our birthright babe, our birthright.

If you are filling your days with distraction
And you want your being to ignite,
If you want to give yourself a precious gift,
Walk in beauty and in light.
If you had enough depression
Practice compassion.

If you have seen enough destruction
And the end of your tunnel does not show light,
I you want to break convention
And you don’t see the point of further fight,
If you are living with passion,
Practice compassion.
Even if the sun should rise in the west,
The Bodhisattva has only one Way.-

Awaken the qualities of Love, Forgiveness, Wisdom and Compassion,
So we discover for ourselves the unique happiness
Our birthright babe, our birthright

A river from the sky

When the space between your thoughts expands and grows for a while,
When the hidden laughter inside looks through your eyes and smiles,
When the child of heaven’s dreams can embrace its pure delight,
Then the soft is falling on you like a river from the sky.

When the sense of abundant grace fills your every cell,
Hear the unknown whisper to you: let go and all is well,
When the silent inner voice becomes a constant guide,
Then the soft is falling on you like a river from the sky.

A river from the sky-infinite and everywhere

When you breathe in what you love the most
And lightly shake off the past,
When fallen angels and hungry ghosts have nothing more to ask,
When the sky invites your heart to spread its wings and fly,
Then the soft is falling on you like a river from the sky.

When you open your hand soft and bare ,
Discover the inner sky anew
And receive the response to the prayer
That is always guiding you,
When a flower’s charm of beauty completely captures your eye,
Then the soft is falling on you like a river from the sky.

I was dead and now I am alive again.
I was in tears and now I am laughing.
My eyes are glad; my soul is a like river
Born out of silence, returning to silence


Enchanted

Where presence and silence grows is where the Spirit flows
In presence and silence and in the scent of a rose

This being human is a guesthouse
Every morning a new arrival
A joy, a depression, meanness, some momentary awareness comes as
An unexpected visitor
Welcome and entertain them all even if they are a crows of sorrows who violently
Sweep your house empty of its furniture
Still treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight
The dark thought the shame the malice-
Meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful, for whoever comes because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.

The morning wind spreads its fresh smell
We must get up and let it in
The wind that lets us live and fills our hearts-
Breathe before it is gone-
Oh and dance when you heart is broken open,
Dance in the middle of the fire,
Dance when you are perfectly free!

Dance, let the whispers of the heart arise,
Let the spirit flow!

Where presence and silence grows is where the Spirit flows,
In presence and silence and in the scent of a rose.

Hanuman Jai, Hanuman Jai hanuman Jai Jai Ram

So Glad

Start seeing everything as God and live it like a secret.
Become like a man who is awestruck and nourished
Listening to a golden nightingale sing-
In a beautiful foreign language while God invisibly nests upon it’s tongue.
Who can you tell in this world
That when a dog runs up to you wagging it’s ecstatic tail,
You lean down and whisper in its ear
“Beloved, I am so glad you are happy to see me.
I am so glad you have come I am so glad you have come
I am so glad you are here”
I am so glad for the next breath I take for the sunlight in the
Trees and for the breeze-with the promise of a new day

See that heavenly flame, that timeless existence, that wonderful Being?
See that heavenly flame, that wonderful being that beneath water will burn?
No other kind of light, no other kind of flame will cook the food you need.

Start seeing everything as God and live it as a secret.
And when a friend comes up to you delighted to see you
Whisper in her ear: “Beloved I am so glad you are happy to see me
I am so glad you have come” I am so glad
For the next breath I take, for the sunlight in the trees
And for the breeze with the promise of a new day.

See that heavenly flame, that timeless existence, that wonderful Being?
See that heavenly flame, that wonderful being that beneath water will burn?
No other kind of light no other kind of flame will cook the food you need
No other kind of light no other kind of flame will cook the food you need

I am so glad you are here!

This we have now

This we have now is not imagination.
It is not grief or joy-
Not a judging thought or an elation, or sadness-
They come and they go.
This is the moment, which does no not come or go.

It is dawn here in the glory of the moment-
Inside the guest, the friend we all love.
What else can a human being want when grapes turn into wine
They all want this.
This is the moment, which does not come or go.
When the night sky floats by the stars in their silence
Wildly celebrate-
This we have now, this we have now
This is the moment, which does not come or go.

This we have now is not imagination.
It is not grief or joy-
Not a judging thought or an elation, or sadness-
They come and they go.
This is the moment, which does no not come or go.

To Love Only

How do we move into silence from the noise?
How do we move into manhood from being boys?
How do move into the essence of our heart?
How do we move out of the labyrinth of thought?

How do we move out of a desperate situation?
How do we move into abundance form deflation?
How do we move out of the shadows into the sun,
And remember that this life has just begun?

We start afresh each moment anyway
Starting afresh is our nature day by day
We start afresh each moment anyway-
.and we listen to the voices of the night,
To the unseen inner guide,
To this moments pure delight.
Oh we listen to mother Earth our ground,
To the trust that we have found,
To love only

How do I walk a little lighter on my way?
How do I feel a little stronger every day?
How do I move away from doing into being?
How do I shift my sight from looking into seeing?
How do I lovingly embrace what is before me?
How can I lift my life from struggle into soaring?
How can I celebrate myself just as I am,
Move away from hesitation to “I can”?

I start afresh each moment anyway
Starting afresh is our nature day by day
We start afresh each moment anyway-
And we listen to the voices of the night
To the unseen inner guide
To this moments pure delight
Oh we listen to mother Earth our ground,
To the love that we have found,
To love only
Oh we listen to love only

Wild companions


What happens when the soul begins to awaken your eyes and your heart,
Awaken all the cells of your body to the great journey of Love?
First there is up roaring laughter and probably precious tears and wonderful joy,
Hundred sweet promises and those heroic vows no one can ever keep

Now I remember and it makes my heart sing out loud
May we delight in the journey of love
And Gods divine playfulness
May all these songs help reveal truth
And God’s divine Light
And the awesome closeness to us

May the sun shine on your life

What happens when the soul begins to awaken your eyes and your heart,
Awaken all the cells of your body to the great journey of Love?
First there is up roaring laughter and probably precious tears and wonderful joy,
Hundred sweet promises and those heroic vows no one can ever keep
What happens when the soul begins to awaken to the deep need to love and serve the friend?
Oh the Beloved will send you one of his wonderful wild companions

May the sun shine on your life


Yes

A joyful start, an eager heart, eyes overflowing, gratitude showing,
Inspiration, love creation, innovation, celebration

Turn this dry dust into diamonds,
Fill these tambourines with gold.

Foresight, unconfined with the clear vision of wholeness and goodness
Courageous, outrageous, contagious like a heart full of forgiveness and kindness

Turn this dry dust into diamonds,
Fill these tambourines with gold

All doors are open and the windows to the sky
Show the clear sunlight’s invitation to fly
And possibilities are laid out to pick and choose

What will it be your glorious way
Sharing the promise of a beautiful day
Learning and trusting the one
Is a joy to convey

Love is a Place and through this place of love move with
Brightness and Peace all places
Yes is a World and in this world of Yes live
Skillfully and curled all the worlds

Love is a place
Yes is a World










Magnificence
Magnificence

No words can describe it
No example can point to it
Samsara does not make it worse
Nirvana does not make it better
It has never been born
And it never died
It never existed
And it always is present
It has no limits at all

There is a secret one inside us
The planets of all galaxies
Pass through his hands like beads
Just look with luminous eyes

Fly high
Let the earth touch the sky

Be where you are
Heaven is all the way to heaven

One song can spark a moment
One flute can take you home
And a forest always starts with one tree

One candle wipes out darkness
One laugh will conquer sadness
One step begins the path to be free

One bird can herald spring
One smile can make you sing
One touch can really show you care

One voice can speak with wisdom
One word can make a difference
One heart can be the source of all prayer

The impermanence of our days
The colors, dreams of our ways
Have taught my soul the need to defy gravity,
Now with a deeper sense of wonder
I turn to love, I step and I fly...

Holy Ground

Hare OM

You don't have to act crazy anymore
We all know you are good at that
Now retire, my dear, from all the hard work you do
Look into the clear mountain mirror
Discover the ancient warrior again
And meet divine essence, you always carry inside

For the way the sun is rising,
Every morning, every day
Take a moment to give thanks
A moment of silence and of prayer
Singing from the chamber of glory
Breathe into the spacious land
And make it an offering
A prayer with an open hand


Draw Near
Draw near, draw near, and I will whisper in your ear, ...the name whose radiance makes the spheres to dance!

Just one glimpse of the real one standing here and
we are in love.....


Like the sun is rising in a grateful heart
The moon is smiling like a work of art
The night sky opens possibilities and
Keeps the mystery alive
Freedom in a life of authenticity
Surrender to love and simplicity and draw near

Mystery Veil
When your truth forsakes its shyness
When your fears surrender to your strengths
And you begin to experience that all existence
Is teaming up to make you dance

When your laughter finds its rhythm and your
Tears find their way home
And you are taking in the morning air
As you gratefully stand on your own

When your trust becomes a mountain
And your fears begin to smile
And for no reason all your senses
Become extremely sweet and wild

And you suddenly have a knowing wider than the sky
And you deeply feel connected with a sense of yes
In a handful of earth and sky in a handful of God
We cannot count all the ecstatic lovers who are dancing there
Lifting the mystery veil


Forgive quickly - love deeply
Dance wildly - move slowly
Breathe easy - stand firmly-
Listen deeply - walk lightly

The Way you are
May there be peace within
May you trust that you are exactly
Where you are meant to be
May you never forget, the sky of possibilities is always open for you

May you use the gifts that you've received,
Pass on the love that's been given to you
May you love yourself,...just the way that you are!

Discover wonder bye and bye
Changing and empty like the sky
And may you delight in being alive
Just the way that you are

May you bring a candle into the dark
Find new life on every journey you embark
May your dreams be blessed
Just the way that you are

May you know beauty from within
Find your way when you get lost
May you love the world
Just the way that

Kayla

Healing circles, hawks and roses
Trusting eyes and children’s noses
Pressed against the comfort of your skin

Strong and easy, self-forgetting,
Colors, brushes, no regretting because love rules
When you dance inside the wind

Making choices, a quest for freedom
Loving friends and brothers feeling held
Inside the circle and the maze

Holding the child with love so tender
With every step a new surrender to give yourself
To the goodness of the days
Though the tides of time may change your paradigm
And the taste of autumn fades summers playful fireflies
Though sorrow and delight become close allies and unite
To ruthlessly reveal the inner sky

Kayla, …all eyes delight in your loving gaze
Kayla, ….a good way to name
Pure, beloved and beautiful, beautiful always

No matter the joys you had
No matter the tears you shed
We are here to celebrate you home!

Thank you!

Now I have one thing left to say
That is to thank you for this day
For Earth and Sky, for Fire and Sea
For all I gratefully receive.

... For Simply walking on this earth
For every challenge, every birth
For all the Wonders beyond belief
For all I gratefully receive.

For every kindness, every smile
Every contrast, every style
For every breath and sunny skies
...And I so Thank you for the
Tadasana

The world held in the heart!

The winds of Grace are always blowing
The winds of Grace are always here
it is you,you you you  
who must raise the sails!

Be still and know .....my dear friend be still and know!  
A world full of Wonder
A world full of Grace
A kind invitation to unfold
Into the arms of existence
And dear familiar voices say
 let go let go let go !


Holy Holy like a sacred chant
holy holy like a night of dance
holy holy like the silence of the moon

BLESSED

Sometimes I truly need only to stand
wherever I am to be blessed, to be blessed.

I am standing in the daylight emptiness in hand
who is guiding the way into Hallelujah land
I leave the mind at the doorway it has no way to understand 
anything about Hallelujah land

Let the water settle, you can see moon and stars 
reflected in the miracle of who you are

Sweet surrender begins today
With everything I do or say
What  I do when prayers are done
  In bowing to the cosmic play
In saying yes to fire and rain
How I greet the morning sun
   In saying yes to sleep and rest
With every breath another test
And every test a joyous bow 
   until life bursts from spark to flame
Illuminating God’s sweet name
surrender begins right now 

I can only truly thank you for this day.
Hallelujah

feeling the grace of beauty in my day
seeing  the light of beauty on my way
loving the touch of beauty in every way
sensing the love for beauty as I pray


"Sometimes I truly need only to stand
wherever I am to be blessed, to be blessed"
~Mary Oliver

HO’OPONOPONO
I am bowing to every experience, 
every feeling, every thought!
cause everything has helped me to 
be here in the arms of God

What is your soul's expression    What is you sweet obsession
How do you summon for guidance   How do you welcome silence 

how do you drop inside   how do you invite the light
what is your way to pray  how do you end your day

How do you share your heart  how do you fall apart
Where do you find  courage to share  How do you offer your prayer

How do you kiss the sky...how did you learn to fly
how do you dance and play....How do you pray?

Love can be  a prayer to live t
love can be a prayer to give and 
love can be a prayer to set things right

“I’m sorry, I love you, please forgive me, I thank you”


GREAT PEACE
 simply resting as awareness now

A quiet Hush  comes over me

resting in the stillness of the breath
 
Maha Shanti, Shanti Shanti Om

A Silent Prayer to the one

 simply resting as awareness now


Maha Shanti, Shanti Shanti Om


UPANISHAD WISDOM

The sky was lit by the splendor of the moon
overwhelmingly  strong I fell to the ground 
Your love has made me sure 
I am ready to forsake my holding on
and surrender to the wonder of love


 As I love myself ....I love you.
As I love you .....I love myself.
Welcome to the world inside and welcome to your inner groove
ever since it heard your name it was trying to find you
the beat of the rhythm connects and the body responds
the lightnes of heart expands into the endless space beyond
like the moon, sellf-luminous ,..your essence


Watch your thoughts, they become words
watch your words, they become actions
watch your actions, they become habits
watch your habits, they become part of you
That part of you can become easily your destiny


You can feel either alienated or grateful
You can feel either alienated or grateful
never ever both, never ever both, at the same time. 
Gratefulness drives out alienation; 


I learned so much from my mistakes,
I  think I make a few more….

oh I find myself 
playing with Leela
dancing with  leela
bowing to leela too


SPACE FOR MIRACLES
Oh my heart your offering is filled to the brim with prayer
oh my heart your singing is overflowing with a new day
as I love myself ....I love you.  as I love you .....I love myself.
 Make room, make space for miracles and expanded views!
make room for the sky for love realized and wonderful news!
Make room for the dancer the wild One inside make lots of space
Make room for the band, let the music arise, and bathe in the grace

You are the queen of the place, you are the king of the sky you are the one with all the cards
You are the center of the world you are the bringer of light you are the opener of hearts.
It is time to move on with a smile in your eyes and a dance in your toes
to let go into the void, the unfoldment of love ,.. nobody knows
“From now on, there are no more roadmaps, no more creeds, no more philosophies. 
From here on, your direction comes straight from inner guidance and from ease!  
Walking the path of quiet thunder the  path of simplicity and star dust..
Step by step, moment to moment we learn to listen, to move and trust!
Open up the window to the heart
Slowly we arrive where we have long since started from
and our hearts and eyes realize
that we belong 



SKYWALKER

We are changing every moment of the day 
our focus is the herald of the way 
allow the change and enjoy who you are becoming!
This very moment, I am a true lover. A  Sweet connection that is like no other.
A love affair, with all of creation. An open "YES" to all of life's sensation
A blessed trance, not the drunken kind. What we are right now, is beyond the mind.
A sacred union that dissolves all longing. This very moment IS the ultimate belonging.

When we change, the world changes,  
When we soften, the world softens
when we choose to love the world, the world loves us!

As I walk as I walk
The Universe is walking with me
Beauty is on every side
I walk in Goodness  
In splendor it walks before me
In grace it walks behind me
In balance it walks below me 
In radiance it walks above me 

OUR WAY HOME

Right here where you and I stand

we shall behold a radiant land
and we shall dance and sing our essence divine

Himetua Himetua Himetua Rame

To Dance beyond volition

To Dance your highest vision
until the dancer is the Dance

We are always on our way back home

opening, closing, moving, pausing ... in an effortless flow
connecting, directing, bowing  alowing....
with our hearts open wide and our eye full of light...
creating, destroying, ruthless enjoying ....

we were dancing like you never saw...
we were dancing in effortless flow!


we are always on our way back home
Yes we are beholding a radiant Land
KATIE’s SONG

Look for the guest while you’re alive
Jump into silence while you’re alive
While you’re alive

This thought that conquered you,.. is it true?

Can you absolutely know that it's true?
What happens when you believe this thought?
Who would you be without it? 

Ask the questions, then go inside 

and wait for the deeper answers to arise
It’s about opening to your heart,
not about trying to change your thoughts

Mind creates the world;  what you see arises with your thoughts. If you speak and act with a confused mind,  trouble will follow you as certainly as the day follows night
WONDROUS LIVES

I celebrate our wondrous lives
and the spacious world inside
I celebrate our friendship blessed with love
Such dear connections of the soul
that keep me sane alive and whole
and joyful songs of gratitude arise

Take a moment to laugh take a moment to pray some
Take a moment to smile take a moment to pray some....
Whatever has allowed me to see rainbows in the skys
rocks birds rivers and butterflies
with wonder and gratitude I receive the gift
I am dancing inside to the music of silence 
listen to the whispers of inner guidance
with wonder and gratitude I receive the gift!

Thank you is all I can say Thank you again and again... 


11 ALL I KNOW IS LOVE

Nothing can keep us from sharing love when and wherever we go
Love is a radiance love is a fragrance of being yourself
Love will create a deep wish to bless all that exists in this world
Love is a radiance love is a fragrance
I live to be the song I want to hear
I long to see the world so bright and clear
I love to shine the light I want to see
Unfolding into the one I am meant to be
Then the stars shifted and the story too
I let go of the idea of breaking through
I did not die I did not turn to dust
It all simply happens as it must
Instead there is a calm lake by the hill
Where the water is clear and deep and still when the moonlight is reflected in the night
You can see an iridescent kind of light
All I know is love and I find my heart infinite and everywhere
Love will create a longing to bless all of existence
Love will create a longing to bless the whole world
Love and you realize you are blessing all of existence,…..
Look for the guest while you are alive.
Jump into experience while you are alive.while you are alive
plunge into the great truth,while you are alive
dive into the great sound, while you're alive    while you are alive...
















Stars in my Pocket
Grateful

May the wind in your sails move your boat through the veils 
of a world caught in time, reveal a vision sublime!
May the sun rest its gaze on the skin of you face
and the warmth of the light open doorways inside

You think it is just another day in your life 
It is not just another day!
It is the one day that is given to you today!
It is the one gift that you have right now!
…and the only appropriate response is gratefulness!

May every step in your day be a guide on the way
and with lightness you stride rooted in silence inside
May the seasons of the year show your heart to revere
to stand grateful and tall for no reason at all

Everything here is path my friends,
nothing is out of place in this dance
your vows unbroken, you are not in need a repair
You receive the gift of your own presence 
as you turn inside and feel your essence
and sink into the core of who you are
When your world is on fire and you forget what to aspire to
 you practice kindness and upgrade your contribution!





Heartbeat of the Tao

We did not weave the web of life
we're just a bead on the string of light
awakened spirit,  unclouded the mind!

The Tao breathes within you it sees through your eyes
awakening with you when you arise
on it's infinite mala we are prayer beads
we move with the Tao wherever it leads

Stay healthy, stay centered, loving and clear
in wonder and present throughout the whole year
trusting your guidance you steer your boat 
down the river of presence you float

May you find yourself fall in love 
with the spirit in all things
the heartbeat  of the  Tao

Then thousand flowers in spring 
the moon in autumn snow in winter
when the mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things
this is the best season of life!

The eyes of All weight upon Thee oh Lord
and Thou givest them their meat in due season
Thou openest Thy hands and satisfies the desires of
every living thing!

We did not weave the web of life
we're just a bead on the string of light
awakened spirit,  unclouded the mind!
Invited
Hold my hand, let’s honor this beautiful day
feel the blessings spread out upon our way
standing at the center at the birth of possibility
and a whole new life is springing forth in you and me
a whole new dream a whole new sound  and whole new pathways to be found within and without 
within the sacred ground of being alive today
and everything is pointing the the way!
it’s a beautiful day

Hold my hand and connect with the peace of the land
the whole of existence is here to make us dance 
this sun is rising to help me live and full fill my deepest dreams
every blade of grass is supporting me so it seems
a whole new dream a whole new sound  and whole new 
pathways to be found within and without 
within the sacred ground of being alive today
and everything is pointing the way!
it’s a beautiful day


So I receive the gift of being alive under the sun
and I bow and allow that feeling of thank you to the ONE

You're invited to sing your heart 
you're invited to make a fresh start
always remember you are invited!

Jubilate Deo
Waiting for You

the sun is rising…the moon is fading …
the source behind it all is only waiting for you!
a thousand mysteries celebrating
the source behind it all is only waiting for you

tell me what it is you plan to do with your precious life
with your one wild and precious life

Let yourself be silently drawn
By the quiet invitation by the mighty fascination
by the strange pull ….. of what you really love
when the seed is sown it will guide you home
It will not lead you astray…it will take you all the way

Be here with what is, be here don’t let this fine chance slip away
wherever you are, be here, this moment, this breath, this day!

As if you were mountain in all it’s steadfast majesty
when your roots grow deep and strong your wings you can rise and soar. 

I am eager I am excited I’m stocked, I’m  way beyond the stage of hope 
I’m grateful beyond repair, thankful to the air that I'm 
breathing that is sustaining my world!

Bring Peace, bring ease toward all that is unfolding in your world
and all that is held inside your heart    
Om Shanti Shanti Om

The mystery's unfolding is going on and on 
and we are present to the movement toward the One 

Astral Days

Secretly we spoke that wise one and I
Secretly we spoke that wondrous wise one and I 
I said tell me, I said tell me the secrets of the world
He said be still...be still and know!

In the doorway, on a bright day
in confusion, or illusion, a bonfire....be still
at the crossroads, on a Sunday
in seclusion, on a runway..in the choir ...be still
in delight and celebration 
in despair or in frustration..or higher ...be still
in the stillness of the morning
or the vastness of the night sky  we admire ...be still
 
Secretly we spoke that wise one and I
Secretly we spoke that wondrous wise one and I 
I said tell me, I said tell me the secrets of the world
She said dance...she said dance
Come and dance with me come, come and dance with me

In expansion or distraction 
solitude or inter action, inner fire... come and dance
Every movement on the way, every minute of the day.
awaken and inspire... come and dance
It maybe bold to unfold and dance your way 
Into the grace of new beginnings... come and dance
Reconnect and respect 
and fall in love with the spirit in all things... come and dance


Welcome my New Life

Every dream begins with a dreamer. 
with a passion to reach for the stars  
with the taste for celebration 
and realizing how blessed you are
Eyes wide open I recover the art to flourish and to thrive 
I learn to welcome my new life!

With the spirit of forgiveness 
away from old habits running deep 
I wave good by to not acknowledging 
what I have learned here in my sleep
I can see the fallen angels and I greet them with   high five
I say welcome, welcome your new life

Every moment a chance to remember the presence
of this New Now
Welcome to this moment Now

A good thing to mention 
to bring our attention to this new Now
Welcome to this moment Now 

With a silent invitation to the gratitude within
and a clear determination to the outcome of win win
Every step a call to remember to be present and allow
I say welcome, welcome my new NOW


Lokha Samasta

LOKAH SAMASTAH SUKHINO BHAVANTHU

 "May all beings everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own
É life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all."


See the world in a grain of sand 
and heaven in a wildflower
hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour.
-William Blake

Lightness of Being

mountains of despair are simply crumbling
waves of lightness in the air as they are tumbling
in the Light of Love and Grace

Something calls me in the zone, something whispers you’re not alone
Something in the air  deepens trust and sweet ease of being
Something tells me this is home, something touches that place inside, beyond the known
Something in the stillness behind the music  that spreads the blessing so freely

I meet grace in every moment, I meet grace in every way
and my heart bows to the goodness and the blessing of this day
Every breath, loving gesture, every kindness, every face
reveals  the simple treasure and the living gift of Grace
In the sun, in the stars,..in the dark, in the night
any time, any place, in the calm of the night,
in the flow of the river, I find Grace, I find Grace

I find Grace and I feel free, I find Grace and I can see
I find Grace and amazingly Grace is finding me!

and I feel irresistibly drawn to that
I feel irresistibly drawn to sweet love and grace

call it wondrous, call it awesome and farseeing
call it undeniably freeing
the amazing lightness of Being

Dance in the sunshine

Through uncountable stars and galaxies,

through limitless lands and time,
Infinite love is showering on me
and I relax and I drink the divine
All music arising out of silence,
all worlds are absorbed in deep peace
Alone you are, 
alone I am within,...  dancing together gratefully at ease 

Dance in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air.”
At every stage of the way, look with radiant sparkling eyes
......and then touch eternity through this breath, 
through this now, through this ease
 through this bow to the One ...beyond the morning sun

May Love arise from inner silence.
Move through your heart into everything.
May love shine in the darkness of your sleep
and dawn at your awakening.

T
he abundance of creation declares aloud that All is well
and we sing the songs of gladness to the tolling of it’s bell!


The Light from Within

As I travel in this limitless world,
Every step I take is my home.

Nothing can dim the light that shines from within

If you don't fight with life
life simply helps you it takes you on it's shoulders! 

Each and every  woman and man
regardless of time and place 
 who’s learning and trusting the One 
in any challenge they’re about to face
may hear and then follow the call  
to the deepest source of it all
in harmony with heaven and earth
Love is a continuous birth 




Stars in my Pocket

I let my body be the temple....
let breath be a prayer towards the sky 
I reach for the heavens and
put stars in my pocket and fly

 Looking back with spacious eyes at the winding of the days
Amazed and thankful for the unfolding of our ways
When I threw off the bowlines, caught the trade winds in my sails, they whisper: 
 Go where angels love to tread
there is a whole new beginning ahead

So many years ago in wild currents of my youth 
catching signs and visions and veiled glimpses of deep  truths 
those winding  wanderings took me home into  natures arms and I heard 
 Go where angels love to tread
there is a whole new beginning ahead

Awaken the spirit to thrive in adventures of the heart 
There is a whole new beginning awaiting your OK to start

On waves of uncertainty
I step out unto new ground
with eyes ever big and fresh and possibilities abound
I trust the promise of this opening that said
 Go where angels love to tread
there is a whole new beginning ahead
