Prayer of Strength

Let us gather ourselves into stillness of the mind and heart

Let us pray….

We bring ourselves this day/evening
With our burdens, our worries and our concerns…..
And we bring ourselves this day fractured.
With Our falls, our errors and our mistakes
We bring ourselves to face them
For to hide from them…. Sends us into darkness, a tragedy of truly finding yourself.
Do not consume yourself in your darkness
This is our time to bathe in the light of hope
This is Our time of picking ourselves up with courage
This is Our time of mending that troublesour heart and mind!
Our time of learning from the mistakes
Without falling we do not learn to pick ourselves up.
Smile with our failure, do not shed a tear
Smile with our errors, do not concern yourself with others
Acknowledge the fall and rise to the world around you with a new confidence.
Do not give up on yourself.
For it is your strength that will pick you up
For it is your determination that will strive through the storm
For it is your heart only you can truly mend
And the divine, God, will know you of your qualities…

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be awakened in order that you may know the hope to which the divine, God has called upon you.

Amen

in time

in time.....

out of the silence....

from the tears and heartache....

the soul will heal.

and with it, the heart will turn to the stars.

and in time....

out of the silence....

from the smiles and laughter...

the soul will be ready.

and with it, a heart will turn to thee.

in time.......

You are an Eagle

And when you fall and break,
do not pamper yourself into safety and comfort,
ready yourself for your healing!

Then...........

turn to the Sun....
      face into the Light....
            and when all is done

Soar into the heavens, for you are an Eagle.

Hinc Illae Lacrimae

I have wept for so many nights.
I have thought long and hard.
That my life is short....for all life is too short.
The longing of life.... is to sing in the wind.

I have wept for so many nights.
I have turned to those things...
That this coil is worthy of better things.
Those decisions made will always be waiting.

I have wept for so many nights.
And he held my hand with love.
And he held my words with reason.
And he held my actions with compassion.

Hinc Illae Lacrimae...

A fallen angel

In the gloom and vast darkness,
shards of light are trinkets of rarity,
there she lay, chained to the cold rock,
her wings wrapped around her coil,
battered and broken, feathers scattered.

Her golden hair ripped and ragged!
Her luminosity drowned by doubt,
Her silken muslin, charred with despair.
Her being draped with unparalleled gravitational pressure.

Her chiselled cheek bones
Her eyes.....oh her eyes...
They saw their souls and this is her punishment!
Chained to the rock of Judgement.

Her wrongs minor.
Her error....an error.
Her past totally forgotten!

                           ..............and there she waits for authority to give her the final blow.

A glass of water

It seems inconsequential as it rests on the table top.
Surrounded in transparent fusion.
It seems it has no story to tell.
Surrounded in transparent fusion.

O' it has a story!
It is the story of life...
and in a simple drop lies the mystery of the universe
and in a simple drop lies the creation of our being
and in a simple drop lies the abundance of our creativity
and in a simple drop lies the beginning of our history

It seems inconsequential as it rests on the table top.
Surrounded in transparent fusion.
It is the story of all stories.
Drink deep and know everyone's origin.

The Way of Joy

And the child opposite me took my hand,
her curious blue eyes tilted my soul,
tilted it to where it should always be,
I then heard the Way of Joy sing to my heart.

The veil of sorrow has been taken away,
and my ego has been melted in the snow!

Not before I have corrected the wrongs
Not before Father Time has released Truth,
Let her fly with Justice -
Let them stand their ground with Authority and Love!

My Superheroes!

And the child opposite me took my other hand,
her curious blue eyes locked in my soul,
a place where I felt something more than me,
I then felt the Way of Joy being in my heart!

The veil of sorrow has been taken away,
and my ego has been melted in the snow!

Their hands reached out...
Time...
Truth...
Justice...
Authority....
Love.....
.........................................and with Courage they pursued without restraint!

And the Ten Ways of Sorrow were understood,
and the Way of Joy was sung into the heart of my being.
