A Walk in Gratitude

A heart thought
just Be.
Be grateful in the being.
Allow gratefulness to fill.
Allow gratefulness to fulfill.

Okay, I’m in.
Today I will walk in gratitude.
Today I will do any and all
I do
with a grateful heart
and a mind of grateful thoughts.

It doesn’t have to be fast
these actions
these thoughts.
Each only has to be real.
The real me
since the beginning
just being
relaxed in the flow of it all.

At such source
I am reminded
in full, complete compassion
that all is one
now
being with the moment
I can see reality.

Love – Being Faith

I know the work I do in this world
is good; of this I have no doubt.
Of doubt I do have—and therefore—
of doubt that has me,
I pray release.

This rhythm, this verse
of doubt is not about.
But about the faith
that erodes all doubt.

Of all doubt
I pray release
through a faith
growing ever more strong
in Love.

Careful I must be
I know.
Because to grow
stronger in Love
is not something
on a list to do.

Love
is done to me.
Love
is first given
to me.

Then … only then
is Love mine to give.

At such point
it is all about the being.

In such truth
I must trust.

To be with faith
is to flow.
To be in and with flow
is to be
faith itself.

Focus – A Pouring

I pour a cup
drink.
I pour for another
they drink.

To pour energy into anything
is to share the very self
in some form
with another.

As I pour self
am I used up?
Yes.
And no.

Depleted yes
what the cup held
yet at the source
more is brewing.

To source remaining connected
fully used up I cannot be
never really empty
again I’m filled.

It’s time to pour
once more.

Presence – Hear the Flow

At times I walk the trail
beside the Stream.
At times I’m off the path
down in the flow.
Still other times I’m on the wooded side
unseen, and not seeing.

I’ve come to know my steps
as both unique and shared.
Such consciousness holds me
in the place where now I am.

Now is good
it must be
it has to be
it’s all we have.

Joy in the unexpected is ours
but only if we are to such unfolding
open.

Presence is a flow
unceasing.

When by this Stream
held
on the trail beside, walking
in the trees unseen,
I hear the flow.

Free and Joyful Expression

Please, love your work.
for in such love
of hand to till
more apt you’ll be
to love me.

Difficult? No it’s not,
to love in your work
when such application
is a flow natural to you
since the start.

Matter not what took you inside
to your true self.

For at the home of self,
love fires
story flows
generosity presents.

Opened by Trueness
freely and joyfully,
your expression invites me,
opens me,
into my own
true expression.

Keep Your Cardinal Rule

Esteem for self
knows no gradation
of a high or low.

Such measure distorts movement,
a flow intended
a security promised.

Self and esteem
are meant to pair,
for the movement designed
is one of flow.

And in this flow
you are one,
one with who you are
and the security of Trueness.

Secure with you, your flow free,
like a mountain stream, presence singing.

And now you know
and now I see
how to flow
complete and free.

Holding it all in order to see
honoring your flow, gratefully.

Freed from Within

The world cries out.
We want clarity.
We want truth.
Knowing what is wanted, the cries become louder
as confusion remains over how to quell.

There is what is wanted
and then there is what is needed.

In need we focus
and share trueness.
In want is excess,
creating distraction
to what is true.

Only in the love flow
does voice resonate true.
Your voice fully flowing
is nourishment in a hungry world.

Yes, I hurt in your pain
and you in mine.
I need your voice
and you need mine.

And so examples we are
of collaborative voice power,
skillfully directing generous clarity,
empowering truth and internally planted freedom.
