Hardwired

Sunset 6-5-15 035

We arise each morning
hard-wired by
culture and our humanity
to pursue security
control or applause
and still we wonder why
surrender to the Spirit
must be recycled again
again and again.

Content and Primed

Blessed are those
who do not stress and strain
to meet God on some
majestic mountaintop far away
but are content and primed
for an awakening to Presence
in the fragrance of flowers,
the sad songs of the streets,
and the silent movements
deep within their hearts.

Blessed Christmas

To you is given the honor
of bestowing on the entire universe,
this Christmas season,
an awesome gift
of transforming power and grace:
simply open yourself consciously
to the Divine within
and let its Light
flow freely from you into all,
without judgement or discrimination,
through each thought and action
birthed in you by Love.

Writers, Honor Those Inspirations

Writers, choose to honor
even the smallest flickers
of visiting inspiration.
They are graceful reminders
of your unseverable ties
to a vast, ever-expanding
and creating universe.
