To become one

Fill my heart,
my body still,
quiet, peaceful
love expands,
faith sustains,
I meditate....
to become one
whole, again

At my core

Fill the well of my faith,
let me have infinite gratitude,
let me love without bounds,
fully aware in growing,
expanding in consciousness,
at my core, I'm still....
meditating, at peace

I thank thee God for all the abundant good you have put into my life, for the sacred space you had me create so I could have a place to put my daily thoughts aside and come to you. I am grateful for the angels you send my way to guide and protect me. It means so much to me to share my joys with you as you so abundantly share them with me. I feel truly blessed.

Inner Calm

I lift up my mind, heart, and soul... let me be aware, let me understand, let me know peace and the Divine presence within. Let me quiet myself so that I can hear that small inner voice leading me down the path and directing my journey. Let today's meditation find my inner calm.

Sharing a meal

When Buddhists and Christians come together, as we often do, we should share a meal in mindfulness, a deep communion between the two. To share a piece of bread and a bowl of rice, mindfully in togetherness. So that we can be aware that every morsel is a gift from the universe, that Divine creation we share.

Let us live deeply. Let us not distract ourselves from the food, even when listening to chants or reciting scripture. Buddha and the Saints showed us the way. When we're mindful, we can find the path, live in the present, and know the Holy Spirit. On that, we can all meditate.

Peace of Freedom

Let me encounter
a true master
Let me meditate
on my true nature
Let me know
the peace of freedom


Thursday, May 25, 2017


The more that I can learn to distinguish between my true needs and my idle wants, the more shocking it is to realize how little is enough, and in that realization I'm free.... give me faith and I'm complete.

Hitting the stone

I sat, waiting and watching
through the window slowly
came a play of light and shadow
this glory hitting the stone
became my church alone
a place to be silent and still
to become one in meditation

My Models

Jesus and Buddha, my models for faith and meditation. They've sown the seeds for us to harvest and grow in awareness and enlightenment. All we have to do is quiet the mind and listen to the small voice within. There we'll find all we need to know.

Golden Velvet

The morning glowed
golden, soft as velvet
rewarding me with awe
after my long night
of meditation and prayer

Kingdom Come

The Kingdom will come
it's just a matter of time
until His will is done
the salvation of mankind

Let the commandments be revealed
pull back the cloak of mystery
show us the path of love and serenity
so that we can grow and be healed

Free my vision

My struggles
free my vision
letting me see
the reasons why
and that brings
and understanding

Our imperfections
led us to find God
to mend our weakness
and heal our wounds
imperfection is the path

Grace is a blessing
another who tells us
we've been helpful
without knowing


Within the Calm

For us to understand
we need to meditate
on our place in this world
the secret awaits
deep within the calm

found within
calls to us
when we meditate
we can hear it
calling out to us
to become complete

I come to my senses
let me recognize
my errors
put behind me
I must be

First Step

At the start of my journey
I began to sense that this
was exactly as it should be
God wanted me empty, alone,
silent, and watchful....
as the first step on a long path


Saturday, May 13, 2017


All of us has access to God,
we just have different paths....
our journey manifests itself
when we follow the heart
setting our love free....

With Care

Let no malice grow
nor take root within
be wary of neglect
the garden of love
thrives with care


Thursday, May 11, 2017

All for us

God sends down the rain
on the just and the sinful
washing clean earth's creatures
let the water flow forward
into springs, and rivers...
let the forests grow tall
from what God has given
all for us, all for us....

Let Us

Let us practice what we believe
Let us be the peace we seek
Let us do the work of good
Let us share the word of God
Let us know the light that awaits

You can't monopolize truth
it belongs to all who live it
within it we are all better

True Love

True love is founded on respect
and with that comes happiness
and understanding without words
this is where compassion is born
and where we belong within time

Touched by words

Let me fruitful in my endeavors
let me live and love deeply
on my terms, building my life
so that I can share and serve
let me listen to others, truly hearing
touched by the beauty words can bring
and the hopes that they carry

My Friend

My companion the Holy Spirit
with me from childhood
humbles me through the years
and comforts me in old age
my gift, my guide, my friend


Friday, May 5, 2017


Let me heal my body
give from the soul
the food of faith


Thursday, May 4, 2017


The world is an unfolding treasure,
its value comes from us
as we explore the unknown
and give it to our soul


Wednesday, May 3, 2017


Freedom comes from discipline
so we can cross the chasm
becoming the artist we are


Moving On

I've mastered imperfection
and learned oh so much
like a young bird I wait
come, teach me to fly
coax me from this nest
my failings made me strong
come, help move on


Tuesday, May 2, 2017


Exposed and dirty
the laundry awaits
so much has been done
let me wash it away
let me be clean again
dressed in white
spotless, at the gates


Monday, May 1, 2017


Inspiration awaits me in unknown realms
let me reach out to it and be touched
for it holds the secrets I seek to know
for we all know that there's so much more
than can be explained by our intuitions
