Willingness for Spiritual Growth

A desire and willingness
for mature spiritual growth
will first guide you to an awareness
of the Spirit within you,
then to the Spirit within all others,
all living creatures, and finally,
within every particle and energy
of the entire universe.

“Unresolvable” Dilemma

If you are going to surrender
your “unresolvable” dilemma
to the creative Spirit of God,
be prepared for
any number of surprises
and for a call to be God’s
co-creator in the working out
of the solution.

The truth is…

The truth is
we will never be able
to shop our way
to wholeness.

The Dentist

(A whimsical look at the search
for the true Self with a playful nod
to Walt Whitman’s “O Captain!
My Captain!”)

O Dentist! My Dentist!
what do you see?
Tongue, teeth alone
or the very soul of me?

Peering down
that warm, dark shaft,
your mindless chatter
creates a draft.

If a captive’s cry
you hear within,
lower some floss
and rescue him.

For how he longs
to be set free
by anyone, including
the likes of thee.
