Breeze Before Dawn

Breeze Before Dawn I Can Hear the breeze in the trees across the street. The Buddhist prayer flags across my front porch dance with this invisible partner. As if cutting in, the now silent breeze, kisses my face. Pilgrim, you have heard of the breeze at dawn? This is the night breeze before dawn. Its secrets are deeper yet,.... and quieter. I, in my rocker, move to its silent beat. I have fallen to the place where, resting in my Creator, makes all circumstances the same. They are just my... Sign in to see full entry.

See the harmony and beauty which surrounds and infuses you. Shams says, "Rejoice that you are held lovingly, in the Hand of God/dess." Sign in to see full entry.

I Am a Simple Man

I Am a Simple Man On this, my seventy second revolution around our Sun, I have stopped struggling to BE something. I have finally begun to accept that I was molded in my Mother's womb to be a perfect me. God/dess created me to be best for All. My only assignment here is to clear all that hides my naked pristine Self. Shams says, "I let my light shine, that Creator may be glorified for such Beauty." Sign in to see full entry.

Tipping Point

Tipping Point Dispite having to rise four times, the night passed quickly in restful sleep. Morning prayers have brought me to this tipping point. Frightened ego-me has been loved to this zero point now. willing, almost, to let go with ease. This false self has finally acknowledged its contrived claim on my me-ness. Oh Holy Creator, You alone exist; You alone are Life, including this present moment me. Shams leaps, singing out in ecstasy, "To Thee alone, do i give sacred surrender." Sign in to see full entry.

Lust

Lust Beyond right and wrong, Lust is. Fear not, friend, lust is merely the chemistry of procreation's will. Lust is love's desire. It begins in the mind as a wish, a need, the flowering of love's desire. When two beings share lust together, love is rebirthed. Love is patient and kind, not centered on itself. Like rivers returning to the Sea, Love will have its way. Shams says, "It is you, Oh Holy One, that is the focus of love's desire." Sign in to see full entry.

Scandle Has a Handle

Scandal Has a Handle Private bad deeds made public: scandal. Public humiliation is a deep wounding. It creates a handle, a box, from which one must escape. There will be no breakout until healing is accepted and confirmed. Yh Gafur, Ya Gafar, Ta Tawab, Ya Afuw. God accepted your mistake and healed your wound. Begin by dropping your handle, forever, from your mind. Shams says, "Relax, Nothing can separate you from the love of God/dess in Christ and Christ within you, the hope of Glory."

Dawn's Breeze Came to Me This Morning

Dawn's Breeze Came to Me This Morning Rumi's breeze at dawn blew gently, waving my Buddhist prayer flags. Secrets were revealed that I cannot share except with those for whom Spirit intended them. Now, I do not want to go back to sleep. This day calls me to Love, Serve, and Remember. Each breath fills me with The Presence. Jesus said "No one comes to the Father, but through me." Now I can say the same. I see through a glass dimly this 'I' He spoke of. It is not the small ego-self of personality,... Sign in to see full entry.

Silent Morning

Silent Morning Rumi said that the breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. I love the early morning hours. This morning is particularly quiet. No trains, no cars, and the birds still slumber. This silence, this precious silence filled now, with the Still, Small Voice that calls me to love and beauty. In these connected moments, I wonder, 'How can I ever forget Thee?' But, I do. Shams says, "Esaughforallah!" Sign in to see full entry.

Candle for You

Candle for You I lit a candle for you. Geography has come between us. I felt your questioning, "Who is this one who touches so deeply?" The question looms large between us. The answer: life changing. Thank God, for these miles between us! Like myself, you need to withdraw within in your search for truth. I am confident in this Love. This zero-point now is always available, always true. Whatever your truth, I rest in this zero-point Love. I await your return, sooner than we think. We have greeted... Sign in to see full entry.
