This Is Power

What is power?
What is power?
Spirit penetrating,
Spirit emanating.
Heart blooming.
Feet on the Earth.

Breath.
Freed human emotion,
Settled seat,
Flow.

Power is
in your blood.
It’s in your hipbones.

Always breath,
Always flow.
Wind,
Water,
Trees,
Earth,
Roses
And Stars at Midnight,
This is Power.
This is Power.
It’s Simple.

Become a vessel for
The tearstained, simple,
breathtaking magnificence of this world.
Be nothing other than what you are.

Bow to this world as a King,
Love this world as a King.

What is power?
What is power?
Spirit penetrating,
Spirit emanating.
Heart blooming.
Legs walking,
feet on the earth.

Being Here.

Nothing can be done to call it,
save to fall to the nature of the world.
It’s easy and it’s simple.
Let the life in the world
and the pulsing emotion in your body move you.

A breath full of heavy grief,
A flash in your deep heart of knowing.
Flow dancing on the floor of steadiness in your body.
The red of a rose,
And the pause and pleasure taken to notice.
All this is power.

Don’t bend down and forget to stand–
too many have done this and missed
the deep feeling of this world in their legs and in their breath.

And once you stand,
just feel.
Do nothing with it,
for there is nothing to be done.

Mind and names have nothing to do with it.
It is simple.
It is simple.
It is here,
And all this is Power.

Be All Here

Be All Here.
Don’t think to get ahead.
Don’t think that you know.

You’ll miss yourself.
You’ll abandon your child self.
You’ll forsake your human pain,
And turn away from your heart.

You’ll miss the people around you,
opening a chasm between yourself and others,
Between yourself and yourself.

Be All Here.
Be All Here.
Be All Here.

Touched by Such Gentleness

Touched by such gentleness,
by the hand of the One in All.
So here. So present. So with me.
As if God Himself marvels at Life in form.

My heart breaks.
I have never been touched like this.
That’s why the magnificence of this stings so hard.

My heart opens and turns to sadness.
Silent, heavy tears roll fast down my cheeks.

The stillness in His touch
Makes my heart crack open
And golden Life begins to pour
Out and then In.

An Idiot in a Divine World

I am an idiot walking through a Divine world.

How is it that the world around me
has suddenly become so beautiful?
So full of Soul and Life?

I don’t know.
I never knew.

The grace of the Gods makes my heart break.
Did I know that They were tinkering away
for my vitality,
years before I even asked or knew what I wanted?
No!

Suddenly, the magnitude of all Their small graces
hits me full on
like a train of blooming flowers softly denting me.

They knew without me knowing.
They were there for me years before I asked.

The magnitude of the World’s grace is overwhelming.
The realization burns in my heart like bittersweet honey.
I cry in joy and I weep, helpless, gasping for air.

What They’ve orchestrated is so custom-made, it’s ridiculous!

Pain’s Treasure

Oh Traveler!
You think that pain is your domain alone
And there you are so alone

What you do not know
Is that pain,
bonebreaking, crushing pain,
is a part of being human.

No one can tell where someone has been
on this road just by looking at them or
listening to the sound of their voice.

Ask, Listen, Learn!
Outward appearances conceal whole worlds
in front of your eyes.

You look at all the glit and glitter
And think it denies reality–
But what you do not know, oh Traveler, is that
in the suffering
lies the most beautiful gem of all!

There the World itself
reveals its true and simple nature:
yourself meets Yourself,
The mind realizes its own game,
And suddenly you realize
you were never alone,
never, never, never,
not once!

The Beloved’s Deepest Desire

Stop. Look around.
Pause on the road of life.

In doing this,
You fulfill God’s deepest desire in you.
This is the true worship.

See
the colors of the trees.
Smell
the earth in rain.
Breathe in
the striking beauty in cold sparkling white snow.
Feel
the Beloved’s message to you in a friendly touch.

Stop. Look around.
Pause on the road of life.

See
The secrets of the universe in the play of babies,
See
the Beloved’s blatant love letter to you on a simply smiling face.
Smile
with the pearl coy moon graced with its sliver twinkling dimple.

Stop. Look around.
Pause on the road of life.

Breathe.

See.

Feel.

Affection is the form of worship the Beloved loves best.
You wondrous lover, you!
It’s never one-sided.

Stop. Look around.
Pause on the road of life.

In doing this,
You fulfill the Beloved’s deepest desire.
