Our challenge today…

beach-1549597_1280

Our challenge today is to trust the power of love at the heart of life, to let ourselves be seized by love, to create and invent ways for love to evolve into a global wholeness of unity, compassion, justice, and peacemaking.

“The day will come…”

fire-1465198_1280

The day will come when after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love. Then for the second time in the history of the world, man[kind] will have discovered fire.

~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Immigrants

For those conscious
of the oneness of all,
there are no immigrants.

There is the hurt

sad-505857_1280

There is the hurt;
then far too often,
there is
the clinging
to the hurt,
frustrating to tears
life’s innate bias
for healing.

Wins and Losses

A mindset obsessively preoccupied
with counting wins and losses
has little energy left
for honesty, forgiveness,
reconciliation, and love.

Fears

Listen to your fears;
they deserve to be heard.
But do not allow them
to mute the voices
of compassion and justice
that call out to you
from the essence
of your soul.

Listen

sunset-1533808_1280

Listen to the gentle rain;
listen to the stomping thunder;
listen to the loose laughter;
listen to the emptying tears;
listen to the rhythmic breathing;
listen to the heart’s determined drum;
listen to the hushed inner voice;
listen to the pesky outer call.
Listen, my friend, slow down and listen,
and feel your gifted oneness
with the Spirit of all.
