I recently chose a book from my shelf and revisited it remembering how much I loved it. It is beautiful poetry and Truth from Kahlil Gibran. I have cherished friends in my life who accept me for who I am, never questioning only supporting. I looked in the Prophet for his words on friends and my reaction was instant. I realized how valuable the people in my life are and the author’s words gave new meaning to friendship. I will share part of what he offered in this passage. Think of a friend in your life who this may apply to.

 Speak to me of friendship. And he answered, saying: Your friend is your needs answered. He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving. He is your board and fireside. For you come to him with hunger, and you seek him for peace. And when he is silent, your heart ceases not to listen to his heart; For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unaclaimed. When you part from your friend, you grieve not; For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain. For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill? Seek him with hours to live. For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness. And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

As I awaken from a dream state my

senses are vibrating with a hightened

awareness of thankfulness.

I have rested in the knowing that the power

and presence of God is expressing 

through me and I am the embodiment of 

Love, Peace and Joy.

I feel lifted beyond any experience ever realized

words are formless, drifting above in

symbolic messages.

I am in communion with the deepest part

of my soul.

Emotion bubbles up as an evervescent

reminder of Who I Am.

I reflect in the Infinite silence of something

that touches me with its gentleness.

In an instant I embrace a state of being

that exists as I walk through the doorway

coming home to center.

Edges blur and I am absorbed in a blissful

state of contentment.

Grateful, so grateful that the realization of 

the Invisible has carried me beyond my little

self into a higher consciousness-

Where time does not exist and where

the body merges with its’ surroundings and 

becomes everything that ever existed. 

Thought Of The Day

A simple quote with deep meaning:

“Life is not HAPPENING to you, it is RESPONDING to you.”

Contemplate this quote realizing where you put your attention. Do your thoughts and the outside world drive your life? Or do you allow some Higher Power to guide you holding that Divine space within yourself to respond to any situation? 

Driven by Routine

Sound of an alarm penetrates the silence

disturbing a tranquil rest …

A deep yawn awakens a weary soul

breathtakingly aware as the morning  announces

boldly to the senses …

Breathe, stretch, move, open your eyes

prepare yourself to face the mornings greeting

of slanted rays illuminating your room …

Thoughts punctuate your mind as you prepare

for a sacred ritual you have performed thousands

of times in the past …

Driven by routine you follow the footsteps imprinted

in your memory, each step a moment guided

by an involuntary response that propels you forward …

A reflection in the mirror frowns back at your image

revealing a momentary dislike until your eyes

search upward with a beseeching plea …

Be your own kind of beautiful!

A timely reminder for a brief pause to absorb

into your consciousness that life has meaning

if it is allowed into your realm of vision …

Words write their own poetry as you stare

back at an individual you thought you once knew …

Mindful, prayer, gratitude, Now, Being in the moment,

selfless, courageous …

Choice offers up an opportunity your feared lost

it presents itself as your only salvation

It slams into your defenses and tempts you with a promise …

Follow the path you have carved with worn out shoes

Or challenge the unknown and take another road …

Journey with abandonment and let your desires lead

you to another destination …

I will meet you between Today and Tomorrow…

I was birthed into existence with a breath of innocence….

I lay in your arms absorbing the world around me…

Without words I communicate to you about love….

I experience everything around me with joy and wonder…

I welcome you to participate asking for nothing in return…

Letting go of expectations and preconceived ideas about Life…

When my tiny hand touches you it is the Universe saying hello…

I have everything inside of me that you have forgotten…

I have come to remind you of beauty and grace…

My tiny soul is an echo to your soul connecting us…

Soon my life will edge into tomorrow taking on  the worlds beliefs…

Cherish this moment I have with you NOW listen to your heart…

I am the wisdom of ages revisiting this space as a gift…

Learn from me as your heart beats against mine…

I flutter against your chest like a little bird…

Trapped in this tiny body but free of fear and doubt…

Capture these precious moments and dance around them with an agile step. 

I believed a lie about you and I believed a lie 

about myself…

My thoughts are like a lost child, angry, frustrated and


I suffer not ever questioning my mind attacking others

 with false beliefs…

If I believe it I have to live out of it even when I

try and try to be positive…

What I feel inside drives me to act out and

It rules me, and I pretend and I 

hate myself…

It is violence within and I want to begin to give 

the Truth a chance, your truth…

I want to clear my mind and feel what my unkind

words feel like inside me…

I want to look at my thoughts knowing as I call you

uncaring, in that moment I am uncaring…

It hurts me until I find the strength to love you

 because I care….

The guilt and shame I carry are ancient ways of

dealing with reality and they don’t work…

I haven’t known how to question my mind

until I worked with it and changed my


I have become a kinder, loving human and

I found peace. 

Voices following the vibration of a chant

words, unusual lyrics from the past

a haunting sound that sends out vibrations of energy

I am absorbed by it, captured by its melody

I close my  eyes, sight is an obstruction to the mind

I repeat each verse connected to everyone around me

poets bow to this ancient rhythm feeling the emotion

understanding the language which is foreign to the tongue

an echo begins to push against me glancing off the walls

I follow that echo of sound within me

I am part of it there is no separation

It had captured my soul and I am melding into the universal 

vibration of Sound.
