Wouldn't it be wonderful if we all used this view when approaching the things that have been broken in our lives? Broken relationships, broken hearts, misunderstandings, you name it… If those things in life were repaired by every person with love, kindness, forgiveness, wouldn’t the world, wouldn’t we be better off for the repair? Wouldn’t we view our lives differently? Wouldn’t our values change in a heartbeat?(more)
Do you know that the only walls, locked doors and prisons in your life are the ones you have built? I understand that this is hard to wrap your mind around and you may want to put the blame on all the others who have influenced your thoughts, mind and body. But today think of this in another way. Take your control back and decide that as of this very moment you are going to clear your mind of clutter, conflict and negativity.
Let go of all the wounds, lay down all the burdens, settle all the perceived debts which are probably not even yours to carry. Free yourself mentally. Do you understand... (more)
Who and what we are must not be determined by what others may define you as. In order to be at peace, you need to know your own self, know that you have tried to the best of your ability to understand and find a place of resolution. If the only way to have this happen, means sacrificing your own values system, then it is time to walk away. We all have our breaking point. It exists for a reason. In many ways it is your authentic self telling you that although the part of you that dreams for the best, this is beyond what is possible without the other person being able to acknowledge... (more)
Like a shadow of a cloud
When did our souls learn to cry?
Their fears and worries beckoning
Pulling them to a place of unrest
Gleaming moons in the winter sky...
Yesterday, they dreamed of peace
Now that dream shattered
Lost in the frost of war
Mutilating this sweet serenity
Unending longing for grace...
Time never gave them
The chance to be true
Their sun once intensely burning
Golden and fiercely reflected
A glimpse of heaven...
Now a dying ember
On a gray horizon
Come close to the edge of breathe and time
Held safe by the strand of a woven thread of faith...
Faltered on shaky knees yet your footsteps
Strengthened by the spirit witnessing placement ...
Beyond anything of this world
Echoes of an unknown past...
Guided simply by your own "knowing"
Wrapped gently in unconditional acceptance...
Manifesting within what your instinct tells you
Surrendered while leaping off a cliff...
Have you wept out your disappointments
Your sorrows, with mournful groans...
All the while... (more)

As you find what you enjoy doing,... (more)
Living in this world
Which often feels foreign
Bereft of caring, compassion, soul
I question so much in my search
To know, to feel, to expand my heart
To transcend my soul to a higher purpose
Struggling against man made complacency
Lost at times within my own self...
Putting my hopeful fingers to this canvas
The blood flowing through my veins,
Merged with the vision of my soul
Painting my path, holding faith to my essence
Reaching beyond what lies on the surface
To an eclipse, dancing in the memories... (more)
In the inception of
The breaking dawn
Radiant, gleaming , beckoning
Glistening upon the dew drops
Flowers opening to blossom
As a reflection of a Mother's gift
The wind delighting in the fragrance
The aura and aroma scenting this beauty
I come to you with prayer on lips
To never leave you
As I am your own
Surrendered in the divinity
Of understanding, compassion
Tranquil gifts of reverent homage
Belonging as the birds are to flight
The water to the sea
The trees to the forest
My heart aches
Seeing you lost in
Believing all the lies
Others have dumped
On your soul...
Entreating, appealing to you
Let them go
From "mental slavery"
Travel within to
Find the essence of
All the beauty you possess...
Remember when you reached out
For no reason other than
You wanted to help
Remember when you shared
Someone trials and pains
Simply out of the goodness
Of your pure giving heart...
This is your immaculate... (more)
I am looking for you
The person hiding
Behind closed doors
Lost in loneliness
Afraid of life's burdens...
Let me tousle your hair
Making you smile
Gently wiping aside
Your tears flowing
From the cruelness
Life has given you....
Yes, I am looking for you
Standing alone in that place
We all have stood
At times feeling total lose
Betrayal beyond everything
Humanly endured ...
I see you
Alone in the crowd
No one knowing
Or caring to... (more)
