I Serve You, Love

You, who are journey and way of life
I choose to serve you
liberator of spirit
who set us free from bondage
in every form it takes
You, who bring us into being
and into awareness of becoming
You, who give us a healing spirit
to guide us on the journey
You, who give us feelings
so we might know what you intend
You, who vanquish fear and death
for the sake of life’s well being

You, who plant the seed of love
in every cell, creature and creation
that we might know the love
from which we come to be
mirroring its beauty while it flows
filling us then spilling into the world
leaking through its cracks and crevices
into damaged, hardened hearts and minds
transforming and healing what we cannot
I Serve You, Love

“--------“ = A Moment of Silence


“It is not I who live but Christ who lives in me,”
said Paul
or so I’ve heard
It is not I who love but Christ who loves in me
Love the anointed living in me
in all of us
from love to love
love the seed sown
a great mystery uniting beings as one
for the well being of life
mystery creating life from light
aware
reflective
self directing at some point
intelligent
curious
adaptable
wise
compassionate
transforming
evolving
journeying time and space
deepening inwardly
stretching out
to the limits of senses
imagination
and beyond
life consciousness
spreading among the parts
every part aware
A primal directive
Love “--------“
with your whole being and becoming
and its corollary
Love other as self
feel
Creation eagerly awaiting
the awakening of “--------“’s children

Love Persists

Love Persists

Smoke from a fire east of here
fades the random rows of trees
settling slowly between them

Empires dying as they burn
controlling and exploiting
setting fire to warming Earth

Still we tend this garden with its
shiny green to bright red tomatoes
and onions in one long row

This caring for each other is love
guiding us to become as spirit intends
for life’s well being


Love hopes

Agape

A short way into the journey we forget
who we are, where we came from
where we are headed
acting as though
we know

Remembering is both familiar and surprising
each return tinged by a sense of déjà vu
it was here we sprang from
without a past or future
just now

drinking from a well in the desert
a spring of living water in wilderness
swimming far from oceans in a living sea
one and many delighting in this body
grateful

Making Believe does not bring Truth closer

Opening hearts and minds
to rivers flowing from mountains to seas
and through the air from seas to mountains
and to green living leaves and desert sand awakening
to set us free from the worlds in which we believe
so we might choose what heals and furthers
this communion of life
may

Anointed love
awake love, full of truth
guide your children
in the way of the holy spirit
delivering us from kings and priests
oppressors and predators
violence and cruelty
evil and indifference

So we may flourish
in loving kindness and compassion
knowing the joy of your presence
here with us in creation

We, the people

Hear us, worldly powers
surrender to the will of the people
all the people
not just some of the people
all the people

Listen
hear what we are saying
and meet our needs
for we are the reason you exist
and you have lost the way

The time of atonement is now
and nothing is too big to fail or fall
you are facing dissolution and transformation
people realize you are a destructive illusion
subject to our acceptance or rejection

We, the people
accept responsibility for your existence
we are making amends to our mother’s body
the air, the water, the earth, the fires of life
creating alternatives your the rule of power over

I will not lose you.


I will not lose you.  I will find you and offer myself to you without reservation, Beloved.  My life is your creation.  Within its span you come to me as lover and as another.  I leave us to you.  I leave us to you to transform.

I am human awaking from a violence seeking your mercy for the community of life.  I supported systems and ideas and ways which harm and enslave humanity and life.  I am sorry for what I did in ignorance and arrogance to others and myself.  Forgive me as I forgive others so I may heal journeying the way of becoming while being your love in life.

I am not worthy of the love calling us to be and become as it guides me in the world.  God lives in me. Christ lives in me.  Buddha lives in me.  The past lives in me.  The present lives in me.  The future lives in me.  These are the relations.  I live in them and they live in me, creation without end.

I did not lose you.  Offering self to you, Beloved, I found you.  Life is your creation.  I  come to you as lover and other for you to transform.

Coming Into Being


Coming Into Being

It is not by chance that we come to be
nor by design
but by love which makes hope possible.

Love pouring itself out in hope
that we may awaken and in awakening
know our true nature.

Love, confident of its ability
to transform wreckage into heaven
is the seed’s seed.

We are lovers, fruit of hope
coming to be the Beloved’s intended
chosen and choosing
from among the possibilities
burning with love’s light.

If We Cannot See Good

If we cannot see good within the other
if we cannot see love in the other
we will not find it in ourselves
for in the end, we are one.

We come to journey a way that heals
our relationship to creation, to Creator
or so I hope

clearing the path so those who follow
can see the signs and choose
the way of loving kindness and compassion.

Everything exists as center of the universe
as the Beloved living and witnessing everything.
When we acknowledge this presence
Love guides our opening and transformation.

At peace, we are the longed for healing
and the spirit of life flows through us.

Humbling

stumbling, falling into conflict, struggling
forgetting for a moment or a time
impermanence and interdependence
thinking I must be, I must be.

a wind stirred cedar, a squirrel sitting
on a slowly decomposing granite boulder
eating sunflower seeds left by loving hands
beneath the tree’s spreading limbs

a transient vehicle for a transforming journey
this complex body, mind and spirit
a beautiful convenience for love’s expression

ancestors and descendants made one in spirit
a medicine becoming communion
and healing balm for the suffering

a community of being and becoming
flowing freely through earth and air
even as life suffers in silent unity

while the dogwood and cherry flower
the Beloved sets us free, guiding us
on this dream crossed journey
discovering love’s true nature

There is nothing I need be but Love’s.
