Align your mind with ur Soul Shine
The mindful effect
When I see a smile, I go the extra mile,
when I see a frown, it brings me down.
Joy and laughter is contagious -
Give a smile and a good wish
and it'll return to you, with thrift
This is the dream. The dreamer, that's me.
The great dream...I'm breathing it.
I control it, with the dreaming mind.
To awake, I must sleep,
or put my mind on hold, suspend the physical.
This is a dream, the dream traveler, that's me.
Hopping from dream to dream...
merely altering shades of illusion,
changing focus with the flip of a switch,
switching experience into memories,
and memories into infinity.
Today - a new dream,
new but old.
It's been in the shadows,
but now I touch it.
With my breath it becomes real.
Mirrors, windows and doors, all reflections.
Enter if you will, the dream.
My Life, my Lord, my Law...the meanings entwine
giving me calmness...serenity sublime
Today I partake...in the world that I see
my senses unrestrained...my heart is set free.
No boundaries encase me...I'm at home with myself
Tomorrows uncertainty...sits on the shelf.
When I awaken..to this world once again
I will find comfort...in my connection within.
Love me without fear
Trust me without question
Need me without demanding
Want me without restriction
Accept me without change
Desire me without inhibition
For a love so free
Will not fly away.
prompts the asking,
And our waiting heart believes,
Then we surely can petition,
Knowing he who asks receives.
Don't be harsh with the man who sins,
Or pelt him with "words of stone",
Unless you're sure, yes doubly sure,
That you've no sins of your own.
A Life Well Lived
Don't worry 'bout the body
when you leave it behind,
it belongs to the Earth
if we need to remind.
No elaborate funereal dressing
need be applied,
just return to Earth,
exhibiting no pride.
No prayers, chants, stones nor plants
are needed to get thee by,
for a life well lived is sufficient
to get thee on High.
Crossing the River
How do I cross the river
that lays between
the world we know
and the one unseen?
In a boat of truth
that gets a shove
from a barge of faith
and a tug of love.
It matters not
what yesterday was
or was not.
But action of today
will mold and shape
a future day!
Palace and Kingdom
and a kingdom to control;
The palace of his body,
The kingdom of his soul."
Author of "Battle Hymn of the Republic"
Which binds us to the infinite;
Of a deep life within,
that will remain
Until we crowd it thence."
This, Too, Shall Pass Away
"Since life is short, we need to make it broad;
Since life is brief, we need to make it bright;
Then keep the old king's motto well in sight,
And let its meaning permeate each day
Whatever comes - "This, too, shall pass away."
Ella Wheeler Wilcox 1855-1919
A Life Given...
...is the highest honor
when given to assist
the present and the future
of humanities quest,
improving life on earth.
It is the goal
of the Most High
that love be exemplified
and showered outward
in caring forms
reaching far and wide...
to give rest to the weary,
to give hope to the downtrodden,
to give rise to freedom,
to give joy to the sad,
and in every way,
to replenish hearts and minds.
Thought is deeper than all speech,
Feeling deeper than all thought;
Souls to souls can never teach
What unto themselves was taught.
Christopher Pearse Cranch 1813-1892
Don't trouble more to celebrate this natal day of mine,
But keep the grasp of fellowship which warms us more than wine.
Let us thank the lavish hand that gives world beauty to our eyes,
And bless the days that saw us young, and years that made us wise.
Julia Ward Howe 1819-1910
