I Kiss Your Heart

I Kiss Your Heart Sometimes when I look into your eyes I want to kiss your heart. One day, it will happen like this: We go swimming together one hot day. You swim up to me naked. I smile and kiss your heart. You respond with a sigh and a kiss. Our lips embrace. Creator has blessed this kissing. Sign in to see full entry.

Judge Not

Judge Not This is a tribute to your one friend who cannot help being critical of almost everything. It was inevitable that you would become the object of their critique, Shams says, "I am too old for this!" Sign in to see full entry.

We Kill the Prophets

We Kill the Prophets From Martin Luther King to Ghandi, we kill our prophets. From Lincoln to Kennedy, if we stand against human inequity, we paint a target on our back. All who still live in fear are asleep. All who raise the light of Truth amidst the darkness of human ignorance are saints, hidden among us. Fearlessly, they point us toward The One. The fearful run for guns as the Saints are martyered once again. As darkness can never extinguish light, so the fear-filled can never eliminate... Sign in to see full entry.

Staying in the Slow Lane

Staying in the Slow Lane We live in a time demanding we jump into the fast lane. Shams is an easitarian, refusing to leave the slow lane. "I want to be able to pull off easily to smell the roses.", he said. Shams smiles and waves to everyone passing. Life is so much richer here, in the slow lane. Shams gives thanks for the fast lane so the hurried ones can make their meetings and rendezvous. Like the tortoise and the hare, we shall arrive home just in time. Shams says, "These flowers smell so... Sign in to see full entry.

Signs of Fear

Signs of Fear We live in the age of the greatest human prosperity in recorded time. In such times it is hard to distinguish love from fear. We mistake greed for necessity. We give ourselves up to obscene pleasure and meaningless diversions. Oh, Sweet Jesus, How are we to tell good from evil, truth from lie, joy from pleasure? Dear God/dess, we are on our knees before Thee. Show us the way back home. Show us justice with mercy. Show us our soul. We leap for the peace beyond all understanding. Let...

When the News Is Heavy

When the News Is Heavy When the News is heavy, do you stick your head in the sand? Or Do you just pray harder? When the News makes you hang your head in shame, do you turn off the TV? Or Do you take to the streets? When public office exposes our shadow side, do you flush red in embarrassment Or consider emigration? Your Mamma never told you Life would be like this. That's because she hadn't a clue! Shams says, "Relax, Pilgrim, God is still in charge." Sign in to see full entry.

This Prayer Is for You

This Prayer Is for You Shams finished his practices early The Sun was still well below the horizon when he turned his attention to you. He looked on your dilemas much as he looked at his own: with a grateful watching. He observed the deepest desires of your heart, placed there by Creator before your flesh was formed. He added his loving boost to your desire manifestations He blessed your day with light and grace. Shams says, "I am holding you in my Heart, Pilgrim.". Sign in to see full entry.

God Speaks with Me

God Speaks with Me I try to spend time each morning emptying myself to sit before The Almighty. This Holy Creator speaks constantly from deep within. But, only when I am able to silence monkey mind, can I hear this still small voice. Creator sometimes speaks volumes in one breath. Here in this state, I can feel the grass grow, hear the trees sigh, and touch the Divine. Shams says, "Don't be jealous; Join me in this silent Tavern of Love!" Sign in to see full entry.

The Last Dying Throes

The Last Dying Throes We are witnessing the last dying throes of humanitie's fear. Fear and darkness do not go quietly But, as darkness is vanquished by light, so Love casts out fear. If the darkest hour is just before daem, then our salvation is nigh. The Gentle Revolution of the Heart is at hand. As the crazy becomes public, Love manifests peace and justice. We rest in light; we call in the thousand year reign of Peace. Christ is ascending Fear is defending But Truth is all that's real. As the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Blessing of Now

The Blessing of Now Just now, Mercury and Mars are in retrograde. Fortune is a blind and shifting God, gone like a breeze. Blessings, like a sneeze rise suddenly from Hu knows where. Creator is still in charge, and for This, you were created. Take your place proudly in surrendered humility before the Hand of the Great Chessmaster, as tonight God is playing Herself.

Never See the Worst

Never See the Worst Never see the worst, even when looking in the mirror. Never speak of others not present, except to give them honor. Never kiss a fool unless it be you. Never dance till dawn, unless you are up all night. Never say no, when Creator calls your name. Never say yes when temptation bullshits you. Shams says, "There ARE thousands of ways for silence to speak!" Sign in to see full entry.

Still Searching

Still Searching We have that in common, you and I. Both of us, hopeless romantics; Both of us, looking for love. I warned you that I was flirting. I told you straight out. Nevermind that the flirts were already past. Our darting-eye kissed faces betray us with their smiles. Broad, hungry, caring, wanting, needing. Once our Cupids touch, we must surrender to love or die. Dying sounds so awesome in your arms. Your youth, my wisdom, born of broken-heartedness. And you, Beloved, must freely choose...

Lord Jesus Christ

Lord Jesus Christ Oh Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world, Oh Holy Divine Soul of Humanity, Oh Christ, have mercy. Oh Sweet Holy Spirit, Divine Breath, Blow Your Wisdom Kisses my way. Let a Mighty Rush of Wind blow my chaff gently away. Oh Divine Lover, You fill me with Sweetness. Your Light, Oh Christ, pours through the cracks of my wounded Heart. You are my Inner Light and Guide of my steps. Shams says, "Behold, The Lamb of God/dess, Who takes away the sins of the whole world." Sign in to see full entry.

Blessings, Dear Friend

Blessings, Dear Friend My Dear Friend and Sufi Teacher dropped his body today. Before he moved on, he demonsstrated the joy of being 'bodiless'. A cardinal landed just outside his window. A friend sitting by his bed heard, "See what I can do now?" After he passed, he spoke to me directly on several occasions, usually to share something with another. He had over one hundred mureeds (students). Over eight years ago, he asked me to shepherd his students and help them choose new teachers. But,... Sign in to see full entry.

God Is Your Lover

God Is Your Lover The Muslims say, 'Isk Allah, Mahbud Allah' "God is Love, Lover, and Beloved." It is this that Jesus offered his intimate friends. Anyone who has spent time with God/dess knows how seductive Creator can be. Shams says, "God is your Lover, not your jailer." Sign in to see full entry.
