Light the Change

The Light doesn’t fight,

Resist, run or hide from the dark,

 

It merely shines through it,

Providing knowledge, wisdom, 

Awareness and options.

 

Never demanding, pushing,

Begging, manipulating

Or controlling the dark.

 

So where is Light’s power?

 

…The simplistic bravery of

Standing in the light

of awareness,

 

When things really get clear,

 Change happens…

 

Like a pot about to boil,

A bucket stuffed to overflowing,

Or a balloon filled to capacity,

Ready to burst…

 

Change happens when we

Can no longer bear to deny

What was once hidden in the dark…

 

And so we become the Light.

 

And that is how Light conquers darkness,

Simply being and revealing itself,

With its soft, yet persistent, (not cruel) glow,

 

Only feels cruel to those,

Not yet ready to come out of hiding,

To face the Light…

Not yet, 

Ready,   

for   a      C h  a N g    e.

Highest Love Waits

Sometimes things need to simmer,

And brew…

If we stir the pot too early,

The flavors will never intermingle,

To create something rich, complex and new.

We are taught to get on with things,

Moving further and flying higher,

Needing to seek the stars, 

And touch the moon,

Before broken wings heal.

We say, there’s no time for gleaning meaning,

Or for feelings reconsidered…

But can time truly fly by?

Or is time an illusionary condition,

Superseded by Higher love’s

Absolute vision?

This love akin to an invisible

Siamese twin, that belongs to us,

And waits on us alone,

Contentedly inseparable from our side,

Even if eternity itself got up,

And sped right by.

Perched Owl

Wise old owl perched high up in your tree,

Are you half awake or half sleeping?

“Awake, O’sleeper, and arise from the dead,

And Christ will give you light.”

Are you moving towards the light,

Or falling into darkness?

If you are confused, trust God,

And trust your instincts.

Watch for the leaning branch of complacency.

Venture into the dark cave of self-discovery,

Let your conscience be your guide…

Be illuminated by the Christ light within.

Truth cannot be kept hidden, 

Even from darkness.  

Blind obligation, crushing pressures,

And the weight of false guilt, do not serve.

Seek soulful awareness.

Lean on the enduring Love of Christ…

Freeing, compassionate and kind.

Why Resist Love?

Only the ego would resist love,

This enemy within and without.

Ego pride,

Ego fear,

Ego shame,

Ego doubt.

Resist the ego,

And spread love around.

How could love ever be wrong?

If you’re shaking your head,

It’s because ego is strong…

Unbending, unyielding,

Obstinate and unmoveable,

unforgiving, unforgivable?

When it comes to love,

Great strength is in acceptance,

patience, gentleness, forgiveness…

God’s feminine face.
