Paradigms

        Negotiating earth oceans is not the same as navigating
        universal seas.

        Nature is such that never is a dream dreamed without
        the dreamer being given the ability to make it manifest.

        Dream  your dreams for if you do not dream them
        they will go begging.

        The highest framework we can choose is one by
         which the heart is healed.

        Find the bread for the day and you will 
        be able to provide the butter.

        In the beginning we were before we are.

        Slowly we shake their cocoons 
        and the butter- flies.

Fine Wine

            Fine Wine

             We have bound and gagged the bird
             who would carry the olive branch
             to the heads of state
             guarding vehemently their fragile egos.
             Guarding so that the horrors
             of retaliation would not
             devastate their souls
             for stealing the young sons
             who had no knowledge and no chance.

             Where is the king
             who would avow his peace
             that others would live symbolically
             in love with the dove?

             Now. . . . here is the chance
             and the time where love
             cancels the errors and begs
             unconditionally for forgiveness.
             We've taken what was most cherished
             and crushed to death

             what would have been fine wine.

Even If

              Even If . . . . .

              If you sing this song with me,
              then follow the words
              for they are gentle
              and full of meaning.

             They will take you to places         
              far from here
              and show you your heart's yearnings
              and help you to understand
              the 'why' that plagues
              your days and nights.

               So sing this song
               even if the words
               are slow in coming
               and even if the melody
               is new and different.
               For in the difference
               you will find a new world
               taking shape
               and in the harmony of it all

               you will find your place.

Our Sacred Source

I heard a grandchild say at a very young age, ‘when mama is happy the whole family is happy.’  I have seen when a family is in turmoil, in sickness, in argument, that nothing goes well.   It is then that the hot water tank springs a leak, the washing machine no longer washes and we are in despair.   We are all out of bread, out of milk and there is no cereal in the cupboards.  I have also seen things go right when a family is working in harmony even under adverse conditions;  even when illness and tight budgets or even no budget are taken in stride because the parent gods work to make it so.

A young friend says to me that she hates what no sun day after day does to her and is it ever going to stop raining!   We give credence to feelings like these.   One day I said to another friend, “how are you treating the world?”    “Don’t you mean how is the world treating me?”  he asks.   I assured him I meant what I asked.

It is not a far stretch to see that our Mother Earth reacts the same way.  Our Earth reacts to human trauma.   It reacts to human turmoil and human agonies.   There are those who say that earthquakes and tornadoes, hurricanes and other tragedies are parts of Nature and because we have such high tech systems, we learn of them more quickly.   But we are a planet of great numbers now and we live in each other 's  pockets.   We no longer have large expanses of lands and waters that can absorb Nature’s hiccups.   A tsunami is not a hiccup anymore when thousands of people are running for their lives while water is washing miles of shorelines and pushing new beaches where beaches never were before. When the Earth splits in two and hundreds are swallowed up in another earthquake while the other side of the world moans in pain as markets are affected, jobs and economies are torn asunder, this tells us all we are part of Nature.   We are as natural to our planet as all other species and events. Thoughts carry power as strong as Nature itself.  Thoughts and emotions weigh heavily and will have their aftermath somewhere.   We cannot separate Nature’s events from the emotions that view them.  

Nature’s events and our thoughts and emotions rise from the same bed.   Let us respect and pay homage to our Sacred Source.
