Hold on...

so many voices staying positive, 
so many smiles and volunteers, 
so many rainbows telling the world all is happy, 
so many bodies being counted for our entertainment, 
so many clapping hands, washing hands... washing hands.
so much rhetoric... 
so much status! 
so much... and so little... 

I rest my head staring into a world of I, 
A world resting with a gilded smile of compassion.
The work is getting done... and yet I feel weary.

Tilt your head. 

I am weary...
I find the world's authority in contempt.

There is something insidious at work, 
Yes...... we all know it. 

But it has a twin. Not the opposite, but something similar... 
perhaps not with the same strength... perhaps stronger?  
It floats behind seeing the opportunities in its older brothers wake,
It doesn't need you to separate, it will be with us till our end. 

This is the greatest threat, his younger brother, wanting to prove something.

And all we can do is hold on for the ride.

I will follow my heart

I will steady its beat and learn to gently breathe,

As the air freely escapes my being, 

May my life be lived to its fullest,

May my life be lived without the shadow of fear,

or if it lingers

May I live my life with the abandonment of conformity,

May my heart open the doors to an awakening,

May that awakening be the risking of my worth.

and in that wilderness of loss

I will follow my heart.

Hanging On

They are hanging on to their power...

                                                                                                         and they are tightening their grip!

They rule with an Illusion of Authority.... and they have stamped it on the souls of those who are desperately clinging their good life

And the world burns burns with our hunger,
a hunger which is false and it will be our failure.......

Gravity 2

And I knew the secret of life as I stared into the Energy of despair.

And I am Enoch....

.....for Eternity will wait for me...

My moments are limited to the here and now.

And only NOW do I know love.... and each moment that passes by...

Is a step away from the swelling of my heart.

And when Eternity comes to me...

I will take, with the hand of eternity, forever that joy!

May your breadth find a steady rhythm, a calming measure…

My friends we come together in the stillness of prayer…
May your breadth find a steady rhythm, a calming measure…
May your mind relinquish your apprehensions and fears, let them rest outside these sacred walls,
May your heart open to those around us, too often we close ourselves with our neighbours,
May the words we give, be tempered with Reason and Compassion.
May we be able to give comfort to those were needed.
May we have the courage to for this.
Your being may not change your world, but your kindness can change the worlds you touch.
Each day we have a choice…
Each moment we can decide…
The Noblest action…. The Charitable deed
The Courageous assistance….
Each moment in our lives we May Rise above the Strains of our timidities, our shyness and moments of hesitation.
Each moment we can be born again so that we may become the person who we need to be. The person we were called to be.
And when we are at the penultimate place of our being, the truth of who we are meant to be only a pace away…
May our soul be lightened with Humility.


We rise each morning…
We are reborn and the miracle of life will continue?
We are but stardust….
                 Brought together….

                              Are we aware of the Space and Time of our being?

May we strive towards a harmonious relationship with our world,
with all the inhabitants that share this planet.

May we heal ourselves from a culture that is hurting, Nay killing the Earth and all its creatures.

We light our Chalice in the Hope, Nay The Courage, that we will Rise above the Vices that are destroying our only home!  

May its light, shine upon the treacherous ones, those who claim to be servants of the people, when they are servants of industry, Nay Servants of Marginalization and Sorrow! So we know who they are!

The deep love of wolves

The unbridled joy of companionship,
they nestle into each other as one,
their oath, written on ancient manuscript, 
their bond is stronger when they run. 

Their sense of belonging is beyond our knowing, 
when parted, no human can taste their grief.
Only a few of us have this harrowing,
If we find that call, will our love be that brief?
