Full Of Possibility

Standard

Growing, expanding.
Knowing myself better.
Diving deeper, exploring.
Looking up, looking out,
trusting.
Reading, reading, reading,
exposing myself to new ideas,
a wealth of information,
developing a treasure trove within,
treasure no one can see and yet
a treasure that is more real than any other.
The medicine man sings
Invisible es mi camino,
and I sing along.
Taking a deep breath,
watching my mind
desperately attempt to understand
through the lens of the past,
and patiently, firmly
holding up and looking through a new lens—
a wide open future full of possibility.

True Union

Standard

Awake early after going to bed late
and I feel just fine.
My spirit calls me out of slumber
to commune in quiet
with the best part of my Self—
the precious treasure
at the center of my being.
This treasure is yours too,
the Universal Soul
that moves and expresses itself
through all of us.
Maybe one morning
you’ll rise too
and meet me
in the place
where past, present and future converge,
in the place
where true union is possible.

Keep Digging

Standard

I discovered
that I can let Life surprise me.
When I realize I’m the Fool,
my mind is open to new learning.
When my heart is broken
I have a chance to see the light
shining from the million tiny pieces,
more beautiful than all the stars
in the darkest night sky.
Sometimes the deepest pain
holds an even deeper treasure.
May I trust
and keep digging.

The Song of Your Awakening

Standard

There is  a treasure
as close to you as your own heart
deeper than the ocean
more spacious than the cosmos.
Concealed in layers
of physical existence,
it waits for you to see it shining there,
to realize its changeless, untarnished nature,
glowing pure and bright and clear…
The jewel of your awakened heart,
the jewel of bodhichitta
is the only jewel you could ever need
the only jewel that truly exists.
Why sigh and exclaim
over some big cold rock
on a woman’s finger?
What good does it do this world?
But the warmth of your heart jewel,
this is worth every kingdom
every crown
every coin
every title and position of power.
Seek not the jewels of this physical world.
Dive deeper and find the most precious jewel,
hold it a moment, then share it.
Watch the world sigh and exclaim
prayers of deepest gratitude,
singing the song of your awakening.
