Becoming

Becoming.

When you see
green shoots
in the springtime,
you may know
the flower it
will become,
but after a cold,
dormant winter,
are not these
shoots so
beautiful?

And when a bud
begins to appear,
a hint of color
in its hue,
yes, the flower,
it is becoming,
but do you
not celebrate
the miracle
of growth
for you to view?

And then in spring
or summer’s warmth,
when sun coaxes bud
to open
and show,
the Essence
of the flower
now in its glory,
so beautiful,
has not the flower
always been
a part of each
stage of its
growth,
is it not Be-ing
a flower always,
with no need to wait
to becoming
beautiful?

Behold the beauty
in each cycle,
in each stage
of evolving growth.
Behold the Love
That Is You,
as you are
becoming more
Aware.

The beauty
That Is You,
is always there
for you to see –
relish each step
of your growth,
behold the Journey
and simply Be.

A Perfect You

You play in sand
upon the beach,
you can walk
and leave footprints,
or when the sand
is just right,
you can pack it,
form it,
create,
will not the sand
return to its form,
always being sand
upon the beach,
inviting many to
play with
or move it,
letting imagination
teach?

Is life not like
the sand,
ready to be formed
into something new,
what do you wish
to create,
or stay the same –
the Perfect You,
you are potential,
you are possibility,
you are experiencing
You
in this moment now –
as malleable
as the sand,
but as vast as
the beach
that is beautiful.

No matter the external
forces
that may affect you,
causing you to shift,
as with the particle
of sand,
you can be solid
or you may drift,
know that no matter
what form you take,
You Are always
innately You,
an extension of
Divine Source,
like the breathtaking
beach,
dancing with
the ocean blue.

You Are One
and every particle,
making up the
Beautiful Whole –
Be the sand,
Be the beach,
Be the ocean,
Be It All.

Flow

Let Love flow.

If there is a dam
in a river,
it may impede
the water’s flow,
but as you focus
on the water,
does it not find
another to go –
you cannot stop
water from flowing,
does water not know
what to do,
as water runs through
and is the river,
does Love not always
flow through you?

Yes, there are times
when you feel stagnant
or wish for things
to go your way,
but as you focus
on your Love flow,
might it help you
find another way,
do not let stillness
lull you into thinking,
that flow has stopped
or you are stuck –
once you focus
on Love,
does its flow
not smooth out
what is rough?

Let Love flow.
Let Love show you
the easiest way.
Stay the course
or change directions,
go with the
Flow of Love,
today.

A Season of Love

Tall and majestic
is the tree,
full of summer’s
abundant leaves,
yes, on one day
the seasons change,
but has not change
always been happening,
sometimes so slowly
you may not realize it,
but have not the leaves
been changing
bit by bit,
change can happen
be it fast or slow,
are you not always
evolving
and letting go?

Like roots on the tree,
you are grounded here –
part of the earth,
while you are living here,
but as nature is
a gift
from the Divine,
are you not also beyond
any space or time?

You change in cycles
like the seasons change,
what may seem like
an end,
is only you beginning
again,
in this moment you are
as above,
so below,
always expanding,
with Divine perfection,
you grow.

So be it spring,
summer, winter
or fall,
can you not soak up
the many lessons
from all,
take a cue from
Tree,
who represents
balance and Grace –
Be One with the earth,
even as you transcend
any space.

Sense your roots
that stretch deep
into the ground,
now touch the stars,
You Are Everywhere
Love can be found.

The Sound of Love

Water is silent
until it flows,
until some movement
makes the water go,
meandering down
a forest creek,
or coming out
of a dripping sink –
one drop
or cascading
over a waterfall –
sometimes you hear
water,
sometimes not at all.

Love can be silent,
even as it flows,
but is not Love’s
sound,
so beautiful?
It may be in the
music that you hear,
or when you talk
to a loved one dear,
the purring of a cat
sitting close to you,
a shared silence
with one,
who knows you
well.

Can you step into
Love’s constant flow –
as Love moves you,
where would you wish
to go,
can you be a Voice
for loving words,
when silence speaks,
can you hold space
for this,
the Spectrum of Love
is both near and far,
are you not as expansive
as the Love That
You Are?

Be a conduit
for Love,
be it still
or cascading
through You,
you are always
in Love’s flow,
what does Love
sound like –
to You?

A Perfect Balance

There is a balance
on the shore,
where water meets land,
no less,
no more,
is there not a connection
between elements,
a place for experiencing
perfect balance?

Is this not why people
love the beach,
to stand on sand
and see water’s reach,
the rhythmic waves
always coming home,
the interchange
between sand
and foam,
each smoothing out
where the other
has gone –
is this not where
perfect balance
comes from?

When you get out
of tune,
feel out of sync,
find where your
peaceful state
exists,
be it a wave
that returns to shore,
a short summer rain,
then sun’s warming
glow,
the twilight time
when night greets
the day,
let nature show
you a thousand
ways –
to return
to perfect balance,
to Home.

Sun

When rain and fog
come in to stay,
do you not look
for the sun
in any way,
one glimpse of Light,
one shining beam,
does that not brighten
a cloudy day,
are you not grateful
for the sun that shines,
even more when sunlight
seems to go away?

But of course the sun
is always there –
if it is day,
the sun is shining
somewhere –
might rain need to
cleanse and wash away
what has been building up,
getting in the way –
after a rain
and when fog clears,
does not the sun sparkle
on the leaves
and even in the air,
do you not welcome
with open arms,
blue sky again,
and Light of Sun?

Have Faith your face
will again
be kissed by
the sun,
when Light is dim,
can you turn up
your shining Light some?
Be a beacon of Light,
let your Light glow,
let it cut through
the fog
and the rain that
comes and goes,
your Light is steady
and strong as the
sun that always shines
through any rain,
denseness of fog,
through Eternity,
Light always shines.

When it is hard
to see Light
with your eyes –
go to your heart
to let the Spark
of Love and Light rise.
You shine always
like the sun that
forever shines –
You Are Love Eternal
beyond space
and beyond time.
