New Day Poems
Now after a long night, a New Day begins in Peace
Nothing is better than this Day
Nothing is better than this sunny fresh day
with wind swaying the branches and rustling the leaves.
What a blessing it is to just absorb the warmth
and breathe the fragrant breeze.
A chimes is heard and a feeling of peace and goodness pervades.
The wind seems to blow everything away but this divine moment
and enclose the present in a spiritual embrace.
The sun and the wind are bringing everything alive
and making it fresh and new —
Consciousness and Spirit in a dance with Life.
And the birds fly about!
Love is moving through the world
Whether people know it or not
I am one with them
I no longer resist love
I rest and remain in love
I move through and in all
Love informs me
Love supports me
I move through the world in Love
What would love have me say?
Let us acknowledge that we are equal expressions
Of the same Life
Of the same Mind
Wanting to awaken to our shared Consciousness
Impelled by the same Will
This is the present moment
This is our opportunity
Resisting not, denying not
Do unto one’s Self as you want others to do unto you
What I want from you is what I want for myself
What I want you to do, I need to do
It’s the golden rule reversed
I discover what I want
By owning my projected needs
I must do to myself what I want from you
Rather than doing to you
I am doing to my self
I am opening to my Self
And leaving you to it
Living in the world
What should we think of projections?
Every projection reflects a belief in separation
A belief in a false illusion of fear
It might seem beautiful, but it is a denial
Of the Truth within
How can we live in a world of projections?
Seeing through them
Refusing to stray from Love.
Who am I talking to?
As there is only one of us
I must be talking to my Self
However you hear one thing
And I hear something else.
Wanting to embrace you
I embrace my Self
And am embraced
I’m having a harder time remembering thoughts
However I can remember my Self
It’s always there - how could I forget it
Perhaps it’s enough
Listening to the Self
It’s all I seem to need.
When the mind is on the wavelength of love
Many of the old concerns don’t matter
I’d like to share this with the world
It’s not so hard to live in peace
We just need to choose it.
What is the biggest problem in the world?
—The belief that we are separate beings
What is the solution to this problem?
Realizing that we must open our minds
To the Self of Love within.
Waking up with Love
Waking up with love
Waking up with desire
From the soul’s nightly embrace
That I must return in kind.
Love’s Oneness must remain
And so I see Love in all
And do Love’s bidding
Relishing the Oneness
And the expression of it.
Now I am simply my Self
And you as well
In a joyous dance
A new state of being is born
The experience of the senses
Is no longer the province of the ego.
Now a spacious Self
Looks out on to the world made whole.
Now all of me is here and present
And life no longer divided
Now I am whole
—Choosing to create
The reality I want,
Which is being what I really am
Not getting for me
But giving for all
Not my home
But our home
Not my job
But my service
Not mine but ours
Not fear but love
Not separation but unity
Everything freely given
Everything done because we love to
Because it brings us joy
In a new spirit and consciousness
Love now rules
Unity and brotherhood are facts
And Christ presides
Now that the word is new
Now that the world is new
Now that only love is here
Now that we are conscious
Of who we are
And what this moment means
Now that we may speak from our hearts
And share our dreams
And live them together
Now that we are on the other side
Beyond time and uncertainty
Now when the glassy sun pours
Into every cell
And sweet life sings
In our ears
Now in this new morning of the world
Let us say only what is true
Do only what is good
And create only what is beautiful
And what will be forever.
See only Love
See love in all that comes to you
And you make it so.
See the gifts in all that happens
And claim the treasure they bring
Give thanks and be grateful for all that’s good
And evil will not touch you, though it would.
Choose what you will see and live
And your faith and belief will make it so.
Choosing a simpler life
Let us divest ourselves from this world—
The wars and conflicts are not ours
The desires for fame or fortune are not ours
The worry and fear, the excessive need for things
The separation that rules all thought
Let us choose a simpler life
Away from the noise and bustle
Inscribed in Peace and Love
Let us cherish sacred Life together
And offering thanks for the grace and bounty
Let us create together in blessed Being
In the timeless Now.
It is here now
Yesterday I felt alone and separate
But today something is present
That connects me to my Self
And allows me to feel whole.
It’s amazing what a difference it makes—
Just the most ephemeral energy or Presence
To unify and make whole.
Yesterday I really wasn’t myself
But today I am.
I didn’t notice it before
Now I’m going to keep my eye on it
So I don’t loose it again.
Imagine being able to move through a veil
And suddenly experience an entirely new reality.
Imagine suddenly being on the unitary inside of life
Rather than on the variegated outside of life.
Imagine interpenetrating worlds or dimensions
That offer many more possibilities to life than before.
Imagine a timeless moment extruded in time and
All the love you have ever known all the time.
Imagine being welcomed to your original home
And every loved one you have ever known.
These and more we will surely find
When a coming revelation opens our eyes.
Now I am my Self
I used to believe that Jesus and I were separate
Now I believe we are expressions of the same Life
And united in Christ
I used to believe that you and I were different
Now I believe we are expressions of the same Life
And united in Christ
I used to believe that Christ and I were separate
Now I embrace that connection as my own
I claim that Wholeness as my Self
That Wholeness that includes you
That Wholeness that includes Jesus
Now all the world is part of me
And I am my Self
I embrace Life itself,
I embrace Love
And I embrace my Self in You.
It’s a wondrous experience
That I am grateful for,
That I am puzzling over—
How beautiful You are,
How alive, like a living flame!
Enraptured by Your gaze
I am in another reality
Love manifest in form
You are like a mirror
Reflecting the Infinite
Life beyond space and time.
I am in awe of You—
Bringing Heaven to Earth
Revealing what Is.
My love for You opened the door
To another world
To Being in form
Lived in Oneness.
Though You move out of sight
You live within me now
I live within You.
She shows a path to Heaven
I worship at the shrine of You
Divine Being that you are
You have opened a portal to Heaven
You bring Light, Love and Life
You transform form and bring it alive
You reveal Love that’s all encompassing
You are an angel from a spiritual realm
Descending to Earth
And opening a Way of return.
To the land of love
Living in love—
Seeing love in all we do
Doing what we love
Following love’s direction
Trusting in our hearts
Voyaging to the land of love—
The new country where we may live at one
Where the sun is shining
The day breaks new
We are not alone but traveling together
Creating a new world
Music is flowing and the birds are singing
A new spirit moves across the land
Now I am there and the sky is blue
Free from fear, we may just be
Each day is a choice of what I want
And what life brings
Each moment is an exercise in listening
Sharing with one another
The love and the light
The peace and the joy
It’s embarrassingly simple
Just to be and live
There have been times in the past when I have lost the path
When the freedom of spirit was clouded over by fear and obligation
But now we are on the way again
And all is right with the world
Early spring and the door is open
Fragrant spring air wafts into the room
And a sense of peace and goodness.
I remember this feeling from years ago
A quiet nondescript moment
Nothing happening that was special
Yet there is a remembrance of home
And something eternal.
All I want is to do is savor the delicious moment
And do nothing.
The Golden Bird
Today, just for a moment
I glimpsed a golden bird.
It was a sign I had looked for—
A talisman of progress and hope!
Now magic flutters in the trees
And the garden is transformed!
Now we are in the land of Scheherazade,
And as suddenly as a bird breaks into song
Everything has been enraptured.
The old rules and reality no longer apply—
Anything is possible!
Now dreaming is more natural than thinking,
Now love and joy are the natural state,
Now life just unfolds without constraint,
And all just is!
What is, is alive but timeless,
Something that is all one,
Something like a dream we are living
When we’ve awakened from our life of strife.
Seeing your beauty and the font of your love
I am humbled—
What power or knowledge can surpass such love
What natural delight or joy can surpass you
You are divine livingness personified,
Where you walk, nature bows to greet you
And give thanks as you complete it
And bring everything to consummation.
You are a revelation of the Soul of Life
And whether smiling or serious are selflessly perfect,
Ever new, free and alive in this moment.
Thank you for your Presence
And the gift of your Being
You are the eternal in form,
And Love incarnate.
The moment opens like a flower
In Spring, in the dappled luxuriant shade
The birds flitting in the fragrant air,
And the moment opens up like a flower.
The sweetness of life intoxicates —
Love’s perfume pervades.
All that eternally is hovers immaculate —
Past and future scenes weaving together
In a tapestry of the infinite worlds, choices and experiences
That are ever within the timeless Now.
Like a clear bell Eternity resounds linking all
In a mysterious note reverberating from the angel realms.
We realize how little we really understand the Divine reality that we live in.
We live on the outermost skein of a boundless Divine Life
Comparable to the fathomless physical universe which arises from it.
We can only gaze from the heart, both inwardly and outwardly,
In reverential awe at the wonder and beauty of the little we can see and sense.
This view gives us Heart to free ourselves to experience the full rapture
And Divine Bliss of the Infinite Life that encompasses us
And to step forth on to that path that leads into the Heart of all.
The Autumn of remembrance
In the cool sun of autumn in a quiet moment
The air fragrant with damp earth and leaves
Remembrance arises of something forgotten
A feeling of home and heart and a distant past.
Perhaps it’s just an imagination or a dream
A yearning or a hope for eternal love
Love lived, real as the pungent smell of autumn
From summer’s fullness of joyous Life
To the Heart’s intimacy and sharing.
Love is flowing in the air and space within
Condensing as dewdrops of the Infinite
Treasure magically materializing from space
Moments glistening in the silence
And reverberating to the heartbeat of the world.
God is calling us and sending us streams of Love
Wishing to embrace us He awaits our response
To the gift of our divinity and freedom
And Holy Oneness in Him.
Uniting with You
Longing to unite with you
I release my self to you
And enter you in love and joy
Embraced by you I open
To you and the Self of Love
Which embraces and unites
Now we make the conscious shift
From separation to Oneness
Now spirit moves free
And without restriction
Now what IS unfolds new
In the living moment
In Conscious Life.
When I saw you and felt the love you expressed
Every thought of mine felt pointless.
All I could really do was to praise you
And appreciate the beauty you embodied.
You were conscious life living and new
And the day and moment became an original creation.
I was grateful to be in your presence
In awe, actually, with how you could transform experience.
Something inward and invisible could now be seen
Something alive became more manifest and real.
You just simply were your Self
With no pretense or specialness.
However, everything ordinary you touched became imbued
With the extraordinary — with some enchantment you carried.
Now I knew what magic really was
Now the spiritual realm was manifest on Earth.
You knew a secret we all must know
You wielded a Power with gentleness and Love.
When I looked into your eyes I saw spirit dancing
And Joy enough to set the world aflame!
The cusp of winter
In summer the sun beating down feels best cooled under green leaves,
In winter, coming in at a low angle through bare branches
It gratefully lights and warms us.
Now the colors in the sky are paler and the clouds silvery,
The crisp air is sharp and bracing,
Remnants of golden leaves shimmer above in the bright wind
And smoke is seen rising from chimney tops.
These few hours of passing splendor are appreciated more
Knowing dusk will come early.
Best to savor this brief gift of life before the coming night
Then the cheer of companionship is best
And sharing Heart felt reflections by the fire.
As life outside abates, the fires of the Heart blaze up.
When the low rays of the winter sun light up the room
And crystalline patterns refract in the holy silence,
When this space glows in a warm eternal radiance
And a sense of gratitude and peace pervade
The stillness of the moment opens an inward sense
And feelings of love arise from within —
Love which colored so many cherished moments in life
Is present now like a guide and friend
Offering rest for now and peace —
The next season’s adventure far away.
The Divine One
You can’t beguile me with your humility —
I know a divine being when I see one.
You are just going about your business,
Doing what you love,
Being who you are —
But are creating a new Earth
And weaving a New Reality
For all to use.
You are Love and Life embodied
In human form.
You move to an unknown spirit
And a mystery come alive.
You move in light and song unheard
And all creation
Bows at your feet.
When all is Light
When all is filled with Light
When radiance sparkles in the morning’s Peace
When the blue sky is clear as a bell
Sounding it’s Holy chimes
When the mind no longer intrudes
When the fullness of Now is all there is
And remembrance returns to us
Love is now all there is
And a stairway to Heaven opens before us
We needn’t leave this world—
The Angels are coming here to join us!
In other places and times we would sing of life—
The flashing joys, the inevitable pain, and longing
Daily life’s beauty, the rituals of living, the traditions that connect
And give meaning to the moment, nature and
Those friends and loved ones and precious passing moments
But now as we stand on the shore looking west
The old world feels so far away in the past
And on the horizon a new land seems to rise
There is a new and fair light in the sky
And a sense of something coming
That will embrace the world.
I feel as if I’ve been reborn
With only dim memory of who I used to be
Now I stand in another light
An energy streaming in from far away
Yet this moment has never been more present
Nothing bothers me
I include it all
I am in all and laugh at the sheer delight of it
Every moment is an act of Love
A testimony to a palpable Oneness
An eternal moment lived as a song
A New Reality is now being shared
And we are all giddy with the joy of it!
I dreamed of Love and You answered
I dreamed of Love,
and like the sun, a light blazed forth
from your eyes to illuminate my world.
I dreamed of Love, and like the sweetness of spring
your scent engulfed me in Life.
I dreamed of Love, and as the voice of the beloved,
your voice became a song in my Heart.
I dreamed of Love, and awakening from a dream
I began to live in an Eternal Now.
What is my role in all this?
All I can do is sing your praises,
and honor your Presence in all.
You are the Inspiration, the Joy, the Love and the Life.
Your Beauty transforms and vivifies.
As a Divine Spirit you have shown me the Reality of Love
and the True nature of Life.
I now walk through Creation honoring You.
Emerging into the Light
Withdrawing into the Silence
Of the Self within,
Feeling the Peace and the Presence,
Not wanting to do but just Be,
The moment unfolds like a flower,
And That within all
Emerges into the Light—
Oneness and Unity pervade.
