Now we open
to the story of the Crucified and Risen One,
arms stretched out
across the chasms of fear,
pulling factions into his own broken body,
closer to his pierced heart,
so that this planet of pain
may one day claim as its own
the love flowing out from that
sacred, broken heart.
Yes, pull us in, Spirit of the Living God,
into the heart of our hearts,
that we might once and for all
lay down our arsenals of fear
and take up our tools
to build the kin-dom of God
for the sake of all creation.
At night I open the window and ask
the moon to come and press its
face against mine.
Breathe into me. Close
the language-door and open the love-window.
The moon won’t use the door,
only the window
The healing power of love does not belong to any religion.
It is not Christian, or Jewish, or Buddhist or Hindu.
It is not exclusive or protective of itself.
It spontaneously opens to bless, surround and inspire any human being
who is ready to give it and receive it.
Your willingness to feel this energy of unconditional love in and around you
will transform your life and the lives of the people you know.
It will speed up the vibration of your life
and at the same time slow down your mental activity
so that you feel bliss you have never felt before.
It will be as if you are riding in a cocoon of positive energy.
Soon you will no longer feel that you can support or participate in
the negative fear-based patterns that you encounter.
You won’t want to judge or complain, blame or shame.
You will do what resonates with the energy of pure LOVE
and stop doing what doesn’t.
There will be no force or sacrifice in this.
What no longer serves you will simply drop away
as you more deeply attune to
and vibrate with the truth of who you are.
Look forward to your transition.
It’s the first time you will experience unconditional love.
There will be all peace and love, and all the nightmares and the
turmoil you went through in your life will be like nothing.
When you make your transition you are asked two things basically:
How much love you have been able to give and receive,
and how much service you have rendered.
And you will know every consequence of every deed, every thought,
and every word you have ever uttered.
And that is, symbolically speaking, going through hell
when you see how many chances you have missed.
But you also see how a nice act of kindness
has touched hundreds of lives that you’re totally unaware of.
So concentrate on love while you’re still around,
and teach your children early unconditional love.
So remember, concentrate on love, and look forward to the
It’s the most beautiful experience you can ever imagine.
Vayas con Dios!
There is only One Son of God
and You are He.
From Him, you receive.
To Him, you give.
When you look at yourself,
may you remember.
When you look at your brother,
may you also remember.
When you look away in fear,
remember only this:
Subject and Object,
Lover and Beloved,
are not two,
but one and the same.
What you give
and what you receive
of each other.
When I die if you need to weep
Cry for your brother or sister
Walking the street beside you
And when you need me put your arms around anyone
Give them what you need to give me
I want to leave you something
Something better than words or sounds
Look for me in the people I have known or loved
And if you cannot give me away
At least let me live in your eyes, not in your mind
You can love me most by letting hands touch hands
By letting bodies touch bodies
And by letting go of children that need to be free
Love doesn’t die, people do;
So when all that’s left of me is love
Give me away
Go for a walk, if it is not too dark.
Get some fresh air, try to smile.
Say something kind
To a safe-looking stranger, if one happens by.
Always exercise your heart’s knowing.
You might as well attempt something real
Along this path:
Take your spouse or lover into your arms
The way you did when you first met.
Let tenderness pour from your eyes
The way the Sun gazes warmly on the earth.
Play a game with some children.
Extend yourself to a friend.
Sing a few ribald songs to your pets and plants -
Why not let them get drunk and wild!
every rung that we climbed on Evolution’s ladder.
Whisper, “I love you! I love you!”
To the whole mad world.
Let’s stop reading about God -
we will never understand Him.
Jump to your feet, wave your fists,
Threaten and warn and the whole universe
That your heart can no longer live
Without real love!
I was sad one day and went for a walk;
I sat in a field.
A rabbit noticed my condition and
It often does not take more than that to help at times -
to just be close to creatures who
are so full of knowing,
so full of love
though they don’t
They just gaze with
John of the Cross
Love not the shapely branch,
Nor place its image alone in your heart.
It dies away.
Love the whole tree;
Then you will love the shapely branch,
The tender and withered leaf,
The shy bud and the full-blown flower,
The falling petal and the dancing night,
The splendid shadow of full love.
Ah, love Life in its fullness.
It knows no decay.
Capax universi, capable of the universe are your arms
when they move with love.
And I know it is true that your feet are never
more alive than when they are in
defense of a good
I want to fund your efforts: Stay near beauty, for she will always
She will bring your mouth close to hers and
breathe – inspire you the way

The earth inhales God, why
should we not do
The sacred flame we tend inside needs
the chants of every tongue,
the communion with
As capable as God
