Reality

Sunrise tickles my face

Wind awakens my soul

Songbirds intrigue my imagination

Sounds of water takes me back to my beginning

Connection with earth balances my columns

The harmony of all brings me the ultimate living

I am happy and grateful for who I am

I am with all the elements in one

Tangled with what has created?

In existence and others were formed

Part of the grain or against the being

Love you, feel me, follow me

Are we two in one? We all are!

Move

The birds’ favorite songs, you do not hear,

For their most flamboyant music takes place when their wings are stretched

Above the trees, and they are smoking the opium of pure freedom.

It is healthy for the prisoner to have faith.

That one day he will again move about

Wherever he wants,

Feel the wondrous grit of life–

Less structured,

Find all wounds, debts paid.

I once asked a bird,

“How is it that you fly in this gravity

of darkness?”

She responded,

“Love lifts me.”

Perception

Maybe I’m arrogant

But I care a lot for people

Maybe I’m too harsh

But I like to help others

Maybe I’m too bold

But I can be scared

Maybe I’m too cold

But I’m compassionate

Maybe I come across as strange

But I don’t care

Maybe it looks like I’m giving up

But I’m getting stronger

Maybe it seems like I’m not expressing my feelings

But I’m processing

Maybe I come across as too slow

But I’m thinking

Maybe I come across as unambitious

But I’m working on the next step

Maybe it looks like I’m working too hard

The truth is, I’m not doing much

Maybe I come across mean

But I care a lot

Maybe I come across too competitive but it motivates me

Maybe sometimes it seems that I value material things too much

But I come from nothing

And am ready to return to that nothing.

Pain

In times of pain

Gut wrenching trauma

Churning acid

I feel it and let it in

Then release it

The winged ones come to me

Illuminated with love

I walk and live with my truth

Situations turned around

I come out of the dark

Loved ones living my old life

I meditate and look for the best

With kindness and compassion

It is difficult to have unconditional love

But it is the way

The journey of my consciousness wants me to take a clear path

Oneness

The being is here always and forever,

Time is only our invention and conflicts with our being,

Everything is in the newness,

And we find all answers if we live in the being,

Therefore:

I am what I am,

Healthy, happy, loving,

Generous, compassionate, wise, caring, forgiving,

As I live in the being,

I lose my doubts and fears and learn oneness.

One Step in One Moment

It takes one moment to make someone laugh or cry.

It takes one step to make a difference.

It takes one word to make someone happy.

It takes one chance to make the right move.

It takes one strike to hurt someone.

It takes one act of forgiveness to change someone’s life.

It takes one drop of water to give life to a plant.

It takes one thought to make it forward or backward.

It takes one laugh to put a smile on someone’s face.

It takes one gesture of love to create.

It takes one drop of rain to make an ocean.

It takes one gust of wind to bend a tree.

It takes one moment of gratitude to make a friend.

I am going to take one thoughtful moment to work on myself.
