This is a story of my ripening remembrance
Remembering a Ripeness that was never delayed.
Forgiving what ripens in tomorrow's tomorrow
Is to be picked from time's tree by the Hands of Today.
Here I accept that You never forgot;
Here You accept that I never delayed
To Be Ever -Ripe , My True growing begins
No beginning or end in the Ever - New Way.
The Kingdom of Heaven is like
A Hidden Treasure. ( from Matthew 13:44 )
"The Kingdom of Heaven is Within you."
~Jesus (Luke 17:21 )
free verse and rhyming poems
There is a Place
deep and secure Within me~
A Place that the world cannot find.
But, You~ Are Already Here.
And You~ Always have Been Here.
Patiently Knowing me.
Intimately Desiring me to Know You,
As You Know Me.
I have made this Place my Temple, only for You.
Only to find, that You Made it First, for me.
This is my Eternal Heart filled with You.
And now I See~ That This Is Me.
You have Awoken me
To Be Your Beloved That I Am.
Now, I Choose with Whole Heart and Mind
To Dwell In Your Holy Consciousness.
Your Completeness, You share with me as my Own.
Now, I forgive and reject my own survival consciousness
that I have come to know in this world.
A consciousness of lack,
desperately fighting for some worth.
But, You have awoken me
to the Worth of Christ's Consciousness.
You have Irrevocably Planted
Your Worth Within my Heart's Temple,
So I may Recall and Know
God's Gift of Eternal Worth for me,
Here and Now, in this world.
Blessed is the beloved
Who Knows She Is Beloved.
And can Laugh
With Heaven On Earth
at what the pharisees try to say.
She Is Awake.
And She Joyfully Chooses
To Be Home
In Christ's Innocence
In Your Spirit of One
I will Dwell.
You in me, and I in You.
I will Dwell in Your Knowledge of One.
And Rest in the Being
of Your One Perfect Love.
Your Divine Heart Knowledge
that You want me to Ingest as my Own.
Here is my Armor.
That keeps me from putting my faith
into the dualistic illusion of this world.
I will never split again,
Now that You, My One God
and My One Source,
Are my One Life that lacks nothing.
The One True Spirit,
Unfolding Our One True Home,
Here Within me.
You Speak so silently...
As if no one can hear
The Words You use are Careful
Shattering time's prison
with Unimaginable Intimacy
How do I describe Your Kindness with words
When the sounds this world lives by
Are too harsh
For Your Love
You are a Silence that Produces
It's Own Sound.
You Speak in Pictures
Of Perfect Love.
Your Voice of Heaven
Rings True to the Earth,
But who can Hear You...
The exhausted Child
Who needs Home
More that anything else.
What you thought you've seen as life
You've given all away
Crack open your heart
Unleash your mind
And with grace receive the Day.
There's only One Day
There's always One Life
So safe from a fragmented life
Stop playing death's day again and again
Thinking you'll get it right.
There's only One Day
There's always One Life
Free from the cage you repeat
No more reaching to roll a pair of dice when
Paradise is still at your feet!
Be still with me, Love ~ and don't make a sound
And behold your half - flight footed fast to My Ground
Planting your roots to at last drink within
Genuine nourishment - letting true flight begin
True wine will pulse through you and settle your soul
Heaven's passion plays fully making clay and crown whole
Be still with Me, Love ~ Here as you are
And no madness of mind can throw your heart far
Outside of the Temple ~ where contrasts arise
Be still with me now ~ let them pass by your eyes
For nothing is nothing
When all is returned
To the Given Foundation
By the Flame Our Heart burns
Anxious flickering will steady
to Light Constant and True
When your still with me Love
I can share this with you
Keep at a glance, this world's feverish clasp
Too much in it's strain allures thought to chance
Where wicked wars race to measure its time
Thou art filled not by chance, but a Heart-scape so fine
Let go the world's fever
To a Lifetime Complete
Where conjuring the variable
Do not be compelled to steady the wary
Do not be challenged to master it's time
Don't twist at a glance - even there it seems real...
Real Happiness lies in what's Already Mine.
Love is Your basket of Hope ~ gather it well.
And Remember to cherish in The Light what Is Done,
Before the shadow is undone.
The Light is All.
It is not the shadow of things
that inhabits the space human eyes see.
It is God's Light -
and there is no space in between God and you.
Christ's Spirit fills the Room.
The more I breathe in Your Spirit, the more I grow near
The Home I remember, and Heaven comes Here
It settles within me, restoring my deepest soul
Home’s already in me as I journey Home
