Internal Warriors

I’ll Be Awaiting

 

Are you there –

at that place far within

where a new vision is

gained? Have you reached

that inner temple and

read from the book of your

divinity: Your ‘mistakes’

transform into your greatest

blessings. I’ll be there awaiting

your arrival so that we can

paint with the colors of the wind.

 

Are you there –

In your precious space

where your inner warrior

wages on; creating through

that sacred war where the

choices in your life create

and recreate your continuing

growth. Embrace that struggle

and become the sacred warrior,

that blessed jihadi, and find

that sanctum santorum. I’ll be

there awaiting your arrival to sing

with the voices of the Earth.

 

Are you there –

At the place where you

feel at home, free to be

who you are called to become?

Waking daily to new blessings

that bring our your demons

and changes them into your

friends through the experiences

of your personal jihad. Are you

there, in the sacred space where

you are free to breath life into

your heart and give out your

love to all you meet. I’ll be there

awaiting your arrival so we can

dance with the rhythm of water.

Taoist Haikus

Breathing Haikus 

 

It is in stillness

that we can discover our

authentic movement.

 

It is in silence

that we hear our authentic

voice to sing aloud.

 

It is in the act:

through tying cords in a rope

the knot is dissolved.

 

It is through living

spontaneously that our

destiny unfolds.

 

It is in breathing

that we find the sum of all

we are that’s to shine.

 

It is in chaos

that we become the masters

of the lives we live.

Nature’s Blessings

Sacredness

 

The sacred smoke rises

bathing life in a purity

of blessed intentions:

– to walk the path of

the veiled valley where

your destiny lies in wait

for your fated arrival.

 

The sacred waters flow

softening the hard edges

along it’s purposeful way:

– to become strong as only water

can be, being gentle in it’s

movement towards its source –

where life manifests love.

 

The sacred winds blow

hither and thither imbuing

the creative impulse within:

– to instill a calming evolution

that guides all towards love –

uniting in this moment, your

whole self with your whole self.

 

The sacred sound echoes

through the chasm of silence

blessing life with a divine grace:

– singing your honored truth

through the veiled vanities of

your blessed heart – where you

can say that all life is sacred.

To The Land

The Allowance

 

To allow in

and allow out

to the land

and the sea

where the cropped

rocks starve

and the silver

waters breathe

exhausted without rest.

 

To let out

and let in

to the earth

and the sky

where the golden

stars lie

in wait for our souls.

 

To show in

and show out

to the physical

and the ethereal

where the beating

hearts wake

to the beauty of life

 

To be out

and be in

to the sea

and the land

where the lingering

smile meets

the longing gaze

– love is there.

Altered Eyes

A New Dawn

 

After the dark night,

a new dawn soon follows with

a radiant light,

and in the great shinning a

new practice soon forms –

the Great Listening – to breath

with sure intention.

Through the altered eyes of a

stilled soul I saw a

vision of blissful delight.

Fractals of our true

destiny lies in the love

we share with others.

We find that our souls vibrate

back to us our heart’s

true path through lessons learned

and life lived through love.

Tears Worth Shedding

Days And Nights

 

There are days in

every life – many days –

where great deeds are

done; great heroic deeds.

Days where mountains

are peaked, where life

forges new friendships,

days where obstacles

are not only met but

surpassed, where light

dissipates the darknesses.

There are monumentous

days where life comes to

not only know, but becomes

one with love itself.

 

There are nights in

every life – many nights –

some less than savory,

where you must fortify

the strength of the Earth,

the courage of the heart,

to not only look, but to face

the darkness inside and

out. Nights where you wish

only to hide from the world,

searching for a comforting

thought – a way to breathe

easier, lighter – nights where

the darkness obscures your

eyes and the feeling of being

lost takes over. There are

these nights in every life too.

 

There are dawns and

dusks in every life where

beauty overwhelms the

eyes, where love is made

true; illustrated through

many resplendent colors.

Times where night meets

day and day meets night

where light and darkness

light darkens and the

cloudy shade brightens

and all the eyes  can do

is to well up with tears

either out of an unknown

optimism for the future or

a remembrance of darkness

and sorrows past. Yes, there

are dawns and dusks where

our tears fall for all or no reason.

The Call

Only Love Could Answer

 

I have heard their call,

the sisters of the sky –

where the stars all gather

to celebrate our beauty –

I have heard their call

that life is a mystical

experience to be lived

with devotion to love.

 

I have heard their call,

the brothers of the earth –

where life all gathers

to honor our presence –

I have heard their call

that all life is a ritual

which our souls perform

with reverence to life.

 

And I have heard their call,

the family of distant pasts –

where wisdom gathers to

shape a future guided by love –

I have heard their call

over the river of silence

where life came knocking

and only love could answer.
