Seek now, I say, and you will find
that for which you search.
You see, I am ready to tell you
everything you were asking earlier
and did not explain,
but at the moment
no one is searching out anything.

I’ve knocked on so many doors
Most didn’t open
So I either moved on
or knocked ’til my knuckles
split and bled

Some doors opened
but just as I was stepping in
they were slammed in my face
BAM!!



Thank you, locked doors
Thank you, bruised knuckles
Thank you, rejection

For turning me inward
For confirming what I knew and forgot
and am remembering

Divine Love lives
and is made known
within

Heart,
I’m knocking
Open to me

They said to him,
“Tell us who you really are
so we may believe in you.”

He said to them,
“You have learned to
read the face of earth and sky,
but you do not recognize
the one standing in your presence,
nor can you make sense of
the present moment.


**

Come to me
Bring me your fear
and all the tools you carry
to perform
all your measuring

Set them down
Here
Let me hold you
Let me set you free

Miserable is the body that depends on a body,
and the soul that depends on both.

When I bow
What grace
My tiny flame
of your flame
bending in Wisdom’s wind
The action reverberating
through popping joints
and a sore back
When I bow
Misery lifts

When I fast
What grace
My hungry soul
remembers
Only Spirit satisfies
Clear mind
Open eyes
When I fast
True desire

When I dance
What grace
Body makes love
to soul
Spirit is born
in the twirling
arms casting rainbows
legs rooted and bent
When I dance
I am free



Practice me
to my Self

Take me home

Tomb-clearing Moon | Day ONE! | Happy Easter

Hey!
Good news
That was a tomb-clearing moon last night
Woke up this morning and sure enough
Nothing
No one was in there

Guess Christ meant what Christ said
That fear and greed couldn’t hold her down
That we’d do even greater things than he
And they’d be with us to the end of the age

Well, shucks
Looks like we got what we need
Beloveds, let’s get started!
