Farther than we know

What lies beyond the harvest of our thoughts,
the carefully lined-up rows of our ideas,
the structures that we've built to share
what we believe is true?
Couldn't it be possible that truth extends
much higher and much farther than we know?

Beyond your dark reflections

We are not the thoughts we think.
We are not the stories we tell ourselves,
and not everything we think we see is true.
Take the time to look beyond your dark reflections
to the clear blue holy space from which they spring.

Travelers together

However deep the chasm between us may appear,
however unpassable this divide,
beneath those divisions we create by naming traits,
we are born of the same earth, created of the same cloth;
travelers together on this river of life.

Look to the hills

When trouble comes, look to the hills
And let them bring you peace.

Try looking up

If you find you've been looking down
A pretty lonesome road,
Try looking up: I think you'll find
You're not really alone...

The game is changing

While you're waiting to make your move,
The game is gradually changing:
Soon the familiar paths 
will be too obscured to follow,
But your inner guide will help you find your way.

The invitation

Here I am, every day,
Opening my heart to you.
How long before you respond
To my invitation?

The soul takes flight

The soul takes flight and lifts her wings,
Casting white shadows on the depths below.

Let compassion flow

Your compassion lightens the darkness that surrounds you.
Don't be afraid to continue to let it flow.

A blessed journey

The path ahead may be long, the goal obscure;
and still I trust the journey will be blessed.

Illuminating the tangles

Even when things are in a tangle,
the Divine light manages to shine through.

Through the fog

As the fog of petty daily cares begins to lift,
we begin to glimpse the colors of possibility.

That inner flame

With time, we find that sacred space within,
the place where we can rest, reflect,
and be fed and warmed by that eternal inner flame.

Dark horizons

Standing at the edge of the year, and the past,
we look across the chasm 
to the future that looms, dark on the horizon,
and wonder at the path that brought us here.

Safe harbor

Hoping you find a safe harbor and a little stillness and peace today.

Choose wisely

There are only so many hours in a day;
only so many days in a life.
Choose wisely, where you'll spend
your talent, and your time --
it's as important to say no as to say yes.

When the light pours in

At day's end, when the light pours in,
what colors will you have brought into the world?

True Beauty

True beauty is often shy.
Don't be afraid to peer behind the curtain;
what lies beneath might actually feed your soul.

A storm is brewing

A storm is brewing:
the clouds clap hands
and prepare for a night of dancing.

Step into the light

This golden land we were sent here to explore --
the territory of our talent and potential --
when will you leave the safe and dark behind,
shoulder your pack, and step into the light?

The coming hibernation

As memories of summer fade, the clouds roll in 
and the prospect of winter looms whitely up ahead,
the time has come for gathering in.
What is it you've been saving up
to nurture your soul in the coming hibernation?

I am this cup

The Amazement of the Ordinary

I pray that I will never lose the capacity to view and feel
the amazement of the ordinary.

Step into the Divine

This time of year, the sacred burns all round us,
one great flaming invitation to step into the Divine.

Not just a gilded frame

Whether inside looking out or outside looking in,
be sure you see the whole picture:
not just the gilded frame and the glittering reflections
but the depths of the soul that lies beneath.

An occasional dose of solitude
irrigates the soul...

Your flame

What light is it you reach for in the darkness?
Beloved -- let Me be your flame.

The fog that veils the sacred

May the fog that veils the sacred in your life be lifted up 
to reveal the light and joy that shimmer quietly beneath.

At the end of the day...

As the shadows lengthen
and the day draws to a close,
knowing that all things, once born,
will surely fade away --
what is it that you're driven to complete?

Promise of new life

The rains came in the night
to wash away our dreams of endless summer,
but with the dawn, the sun's returned
and now the day is bright with possibility.
What is being birthed in you today?
