MESSAGES FROM THE MASTERS

Through the core to the center of the earth
and
reaching out to the far far farthest star
Stairways step by step go up climb in
been to the mountaintop
Otherly worlds highest of most high
    Narrow passageway into the king of kingdoms
Entering gates of heaven and realm of the Gods.
    Circles widen even wider and wider more
Come gather
Come take a seat dear one
Kneel bow down to thy alter
Offerings of the heart
Anointed with holy waters of life
Palms open wide
    Thy will be done

Walking Eachother Home.JPG

WALKING EACH OTHER HOME

Souls find one another
Like a secret language tribe calling out
come this way…come this way

We evolve within the context of relationship
Seekers on the same path walking in different ways
Where we see one another into being
and
I become I am because of you
This journey to the high places takes time
step by step by step by step
Together we remember
Eye to eye
Hand holding hand
Heart beating Heart
In the end
We are all just walking each other home…HOME

Speaking With Trees.JPG

SPEAKING WITH TREES

Wild wonders of the forest
The one breathing all of us.
Of this land,
we are born here.

Earthly belonging underground hidden lives
Webs reach wide connecting
this thing- everything- all things

Sacred songs of the trees

speaking in tongues a secret language
Wise wisdom of the earth whispers
she keeps calling us home

Come home
Lean in and listen
      Shhhhh
Do you dare listen

Parting of the Red Sea.JPG

PARTING OF THE RED SEA

Do you believe
Do you believe in miracles?

These impossible night sea journeys
Continue my love in the face of death
Step forward…Step to…Step toward
Go stand bow down before these great waters
Tidal waves mouth open up wide
and even wider
Parting of the seas bestow passageways
Go in cross over pass through
A deliverance
That which gives rise
salvation into the promise lands
where you will never ever be the same.
         Never the same

Lessons of LOVE.JPG

LESSONS OF LOVE

Lure me in
love drunk desire
inject poison pump through veins
A pure intoxication

If Love could speak she would say:
Drink this nectar
Open wide and swallow me whole
Then spit me back up
Pull me close close close
hold me oh so so tight
Push me far far far up out and away
Heart rip wide broke open it hurts so good
Is the high really worth the pain?
 
If Love could speak she would say:
Thank you -Thank you -Thank you
I am sorry so-so-so sorry
Please Please forgive me Please
Because I love you…yes I love you…YOU

Returning Home.JPG

RETURNING HOME

There will be a day when it is time to stop
Stop spinning round round round and around
Stop running running running far far far away
from every little thing you deny.

There will be a day when it is time to come back Home.
You say want your heart to open
Come sit still
     Come take a seat rest here
Thy Kingdom of Love
here you are safe and this belongs
     Come take a seat rest here
and allow this to be the moment that changes the course of your entire destiny

Gentle my friend
Returning home takes time
       This takes time

Unravel-ing.JPG

UNRAVEL-ING

Threads tease tear rip me apart
This will destroy you


And 
You will be born again.


Do you have patience my dear…


Patience to unravel untie untangle


every single tiny little knot


inside within downward 


beneath under the layers of your skin to the core

of the center of your being

Do you have the patience


     To become what you have seen…

Moon Dance.JPG

MOON DANCE

Lightening flashes
through the valley of the shadows
into the dark beyond darkness of the darkest night

Dare traverse
known opening into new
all which has yet to be awakened
and all that lies beyond

Moon shine Moon bright
      Dance me alive
into the fullness of life

Light of the world
A great voyage across the vast night skies
The more and more you touch the source
     The more and more you know the way.

Reflections of Truth.JPG

REFLECTIONS OF TRUTH

Frozen cold solid within
Voices from deep waters of the earth
Mouth of the oceans open wide
Fractures of ice loosen at the edges
Fragmented ruptures of the underworlds

Just beneath the surface below the line
Thaw crack crack cracking
Break apart…undo
Become undone

Whole being dissolves liquid
float up rise through
wash down swept away
Emerging waves of existence spin spiral stillness
A mirror image reflecting
     Truth…Seers of Truth
Truth itself shall set you free

Seasons of Change.JPG

SEASONS OF CHANGE

Leaves fall
Falling down

Falling---Fallen---Fall away

Layers beneath layers of more layers
Dead things dieing
Letting go
Let go
My precious its time
It is time to let the old ways die
and
allow release to change you.

The Sacred Knot.JPG

THE SACRED KNOT

Layer upon layer upon layers
This runs deep
Underneath below the flesh of skin
doubt-fear-belief-covering-habit-pattern complex
This sacred knot calls craves your attention
Where the light gets in
     Do you dare enter?
     Do you dare listen?
To a life trapped inside
   To a voice that yearns to speak

               TRUTH…

Dance Me.JPG

DANCE ME

Dance me to death
Dance me to life
Dance me to the end
A dance to begin again
Again…

All over again.

EVERYTHING CONNECTS

Cause and effect
come together connect inside and out this and that

you back to me
Coincidence touches deep
gives rise to meaning
from the center of the center
a still point reaching out

where
everything eventually connects

Heart-Body-Mind Wars.JPG

MIND-BODY-HEART WARS

Mind spinning stories speaking lies
telling body talking words twisting truths.

These great crusades and heavenly holy wars
Meeting of lost hidden secret selves behind the self
Sacred encounters with all the dragon demons whom to wrestle
Battles of the spirits of the soul
wear me out and bring me fall down fallen to thy knees
Revelations of the heart cry crying out cry cry
    Let me let you go

AN AWAKENED HEART

Great Empire beckons
Journey to the temple of the Heart
Did you know
Not telling your story will make you sick

Where does it hurt my dear?
Please tell me I am listening.

Heart break Heart broke Heart cracks deep wide open

A heart that is ready for anything
This pain…This wound…This scar
This
This is your sacred medicine

SunKissed.JPG

SUN-KISSED

Sweet son of God
speaking in tongues the language of Sun
     Here I am
I stand before you
     I am here
Spirit of the sun
wrap my body back whole
lips to the skin
a summer daze
summer sun golden rays
speak
soft
been kissed by the sun…Sunkissed

Bring Me Back To Life.JPG

BRING ME BACK TO LIFE

Born into wholeness
Yet fallen adrift gone astray long lost my way

The great traverse
Trust all that which emerges
Whole Truth and nothing but the Truth
Can you really bear to hear see hold taste TRUTH?

Sting of death
many little times we die
a rite of passage
Sacred lands of
No longer and Not yet

Risen
to be born again
There is glory here
My dear do not rush
    Do Not Rush…
