Stillness, awareness, far from the bustling crowd, whispers divine Mind. Deep calls unto deep, Spirit beckons, heart follows, on hind's feet, joy leaps.

Spring

Sweet odor fills the air, where daffodils and pine enhance the morning air and larks soar in the sky. Awaken, the earth sings, a song of joy and peace, the bell of Easter rings, proclaiming, "the Lord lives".

Not As I will

A drop in the ocean, a light beam of the sun, self-centered thought counts not, but Consciousness is One. He spoke hard words, exposing evil, dethroning self, he was a stranger among his own, misjudged, condemned, yet loved he to the end. So let...

The End of Time or a Beginning?

Why seek contentment in the body, why look for what cannot be found, is that which perishes substantial, is matter mightier than Mind? Did the Creator make a flower to bloom today, tomorrow die, did He not breathe eternal power into the beauty se...

A friend and companion you were to many, compassion and loyalty, replenished and shared, you freely gave from the heart. Clothed are you in light, bathed in Love's living streams, your spirit--in flight toward sun's eternal beams.
