EVERYBODY HAS FAITH
AND HAS TO PUT HER OR HIS TRUST
IN SOMEONE, THING OR ENDEAVOR,
ALL AS PROJECTED BY HER OR HIS MIND.

FAITH IN THE UNKNOWN IS NOT OF THE MIND.
IT DERIVES FROM A SUBTLE ENERGY
THAT MAKES ONE AWARE OF A DIFFERENT LEVEL OF EXISTENCE.
THIS FAITH IS BEYOND THE LIMITS OF THE MIND
AND OVERCOMES ITS HESITATIONS.
FAITH IN THE UNKNOWN
BRINGS INNER CONFIDENCE AND STRENGTH
WHEN THINGS APPEAR ADVERSE AND DIFFICULT.

NO ONE
BUT EACH ONE FOR HER OR HIS SELF
KNOWS THE POWER
OF HER OR HIS FAITH.

The only must
Is trust.

 

 

Purest Faith

INHERENT IN THE WORD

BEAUTY... LOVE,

IN LOVE... TRUTH,

INHERENT IN THE WORD

GOD... ALL.

 

Ultimate Grace

Knowledge - Understanding - Wisdom
Levels to pass through.
The route, so to speak,
To what is True.

For those who seek the Truth,
It is the way to go.
The starting point,
The truth to know.

Knowledge is the first step,
This is how to begin . . .
Then, through perspective,
Making distinctions... understanding to win.

The third stage,
The real goal,
Is to see each
As part of the Whole.

To reach this level
The final place...
What is needed -
Is Ultimate Grace.


 

Feel

Feel... it is just as real
As what you see, more maybe.


Feel, no need to touch,

With no touch... feel as much.

Feelings are given to man,

To have and use as he can.

Goes beyond sight, hearing, smell.
With it to sense even more, full well.

With Faith, there's no other way

But to feel,
feel,
feel away.


 

Unlimited

Love is always wonderful,
At any time, anywhere, anyway
In all forms, as it expresses itself.

Love is limited by time,
space,
constant change,
When it involves another.

Love is

U N L I M I T E D,

only as it flows
from
and with Faith.


 

The Ultimate Arrogance

Arrogance of wealth,
Arrogance of power,

Of whatever...
Like cream turned sour.

Any arrogance
Is sad to behold,
When a value
Is oversold.

Intellectuals
Get carried away,
Falling victim,
Become their own prey.

People of strong faith
Can also fall.

When this happens,
They're worse than all.

But someone without faith,
May heaven protect.
There is nothing
He will respect.


 
Personal Faith

WHAT DOES IT TAKE,

WHY IS THERE A BREAK?

THE BARRIER LINE?

YOURS, MINE?

TRY AS WE TRY,

TO TOUCH THE SKY...

IT WAS DECREED, IT WILL RECEDE.

 

 
Faith's Mode

One
detects
subtle
effects
Taking place inwardly,
By grace...
continually...

The
mystery
of
s p i r i t u a l i t y.


 
False Pride

Following false pride

We wander in the woods

Not even knowing we are lost.

Only when we realize our plight

Can we seek to find the way back

To sunlight.

We will see markings left by others

Who have traversed the woods before.

Let us follow them,

grateful and humble.


 
The Final Word

What is our direction?
We really don't know
As we go.

We do have a course.
It's as best as we can see,
Where we'd like to be.

Yet we should know
There's no one place to be,
Nor from which to flee.

?

Does a bird fly
By its eye?

Is it the nose
By which the dog goes?

Or on hearing scat
For a cat?

Eye, nose, ear,
As directors appear.

But the final word
Is nothing seen,
smelled
or
heard.


 
Finding God

All religions bar none,
Say only one God for everyone.

He is said to be everywhere,
But how to find Him, has not been made clear.

We are told He cannot be seen or heard.
Must we only take another's word?
If not,
how does one do it,
where does one look?
Certainly not in some cranny or nook.

If one yearns to know God,
this is what to do.

One must still the mind,
for God to come through.
God will become known,
felt in one's heart.


God is in each one, not apart.


 
Awakened By Grace

Awakened from a long sleep,
I fell into the deepest deep
Where I lay restless, tossing about
With You in mind, not coming out.

When the time came to rise,
I opened my eyes
For a moment I thought I was blind,
I saw only You in my mind.

Since that night when You appeared,
You've never left, disappeared.
You have been with me night and day,
Having stayed in Your mysterious way.

There is no doubt what took place,
I experienced Faith,
it was an act of Grace ...


 
The Friend

Hadn't met anyone like you,
Isn't it great?
Someone special to whom I now relate.

A friend I never had before,
Someone I have come to adore.

A companion to see me through
Good times, bad times . . . when I am blue.

The friend that came to me,
Had been there, but I couldn't see.
The person I've now come to know
Is myself! my being, that began to show.
My sense of self worth long underground,
Had come forward as the new friend found.

It was God I had come to know,
Who brought me to see in myself
The worth that He does bestow.


 

Ongoing

I go alone,
wondering where it will lead,
knowing
my desire will not recede.

Lost but not lost.
Would I not be truly lost
if I did not go on?

Call it whatever you will
that I can't be still.
I look for markings
left by others
that I try to trace
to that mystical place.

A place
that has its own drawing power,
that is never gone ...
and grows stronger
as I go on.


 
Inside / Out

I have found the highest love,
Inside of me.
A love so strong,
Nothing outside need be.

It is love from The Source
That now does flow.
There all the time,
Its finding came slow.


I sought it all my life,
Traveled far and wide.
Looked everywhere
But never inside.

Can't really say
How it came about.
That I found love
Flowed inside out.

I never knew love this way
Beyond all I can compare,
Growing greater every day.
Its presence always there.


 
Not Through The Mind

LORD,
I'M TRYING SO HARD TO COME TO PEACE.
PLEASE HELP ME
TO HAVE THIS ENDLESS STRUGGLE CEASE.
TO ACCEPT YOU TOTALLY,
HAVE NO MIND
FOR TROUBLE MY MIND CAN FlND.


ONLY THROUGH YOU I REACH MY GOAL.
HAVE INNER PEACE THAT LIES WITHIN MY SOUL.


 

No And Yes

Though I am not Him,
I am of Him.
Though I am apart,
I am a part.

We are all of One,
You, I, everyone.

Players in a Play.
To see ourselves this way,
All part of one Whole,
Playing out a role.

 

 

Guided By Love

I'm guided by love.
If it were the same for you ...
Can it be imagined
All we can be, can do?

Can it be grasped,
Is it beyond our ken?
What good works would follow
For ourselves and our brethren.

Can we imagine,
Understand to some degree,
What will result
If this can be?

The seven seas.
The sky above.
Everywhere, everyone.
Guided by love.

 

 

My Quiet Place

I love my quiet place
that time of day
when I embrace my solitude ...

With humble gratitude ...

The day is spent,

I feel well,
naught disturbs,
I am content.

I feel one with the All,
with all of me.

My time and place in eternity.

 

 

Captivity

I'm in captivity,
I'm not free.
I have found
I'm totally bound.

I can't escape,
wouldn't even try,
Why should I?

I so remain
and don't complain.

It is the opposite,
I love it ...

My captivity ...
is spirituality!

 

 

Bee Or Bloom

Is it the bee or the bloom,
Which has the power
For the bee to flit
From flower to flower?

Is it the ocean or moon,
Which causes the flow,
For the tides to change
From high to low?

Is it my mind or heart,
Which may it be,
That has me concerned
With morality?

My longing for God
I can't undo.
It is His love.
Is it the same for you?

 

 

Given To Men

GIVEN TO MEN
given to me,
To think and life's meaning to see.

GIVEN TO MEN
given to me,
To try to probe life's mystery

GIVEN TO MEN
given to me,
To use this capability.

GIVEN TO MEN
given to me,
To recognize the Unity,

Not animals, only men
Are graced with this ken.
