Attuned to the Rhythm of Nature

.

Beating, beating is the drum,
pumping heart, rhythmic thrum.

Fingers dancing on the skin,
tapping into more within.

Singing life and energy,
drumming in the ecstasy

of oneness with the All, the Source
flowing on its endless course,

river dancing just to be
tumbling over rock to sea,

river joyful in its own,
bird from cage, the drummer’s flown.

I See You

I SEE YOU - from AVATAR MOVIE - 004

‘Avatar’ by James Cameron. Fair use.

‘Whatever shade of brown or blue,

beneath your skin my eyes see you.’

This is seeing clearly, seeing wholly.

It is looking beneath the surface of sensory input and realizing the greater existence.

Mostly people see only the surface and live there.

In the surface world, there is always wanting, always the fear of having not enough.

The ‘me’ wants. To experience the ‘Eye’ and see the greater reality, the ‘me’ must let go of all wanting, all attachments.

If you let go of the Who, where wanting originates, you feel so nourished by the What that the mechanics of the surface become a disturbance. In the What, there is the inner room.

The inner room of presence, of contentment, needs no adornments as it is complete. The inner room radiates presence and nourishes the mind and body.

So it can be said truly, where God is the whole of existence,

‘Let go and experience God.’

Words from Me to You

WORDS FROM ME TO YOU_www_001

When words pour out from me to you,

my heart intent is that they’re true.

The words begin from a pure source

then seem to travel on a course

that winds through places where they could

pick up sticks and stones and mud.

WORDS FROM ME TO YOU_www_002

It’s my intent, my heart and will

to give from waters deep and still.

Yet if you find the water’s brown

I ask that you don’t throw it down,

but hand it gently back to me,

WORDS FROM ME TO YOU_www_003

so I can filter it and see

that pure waters nourish life

and muddy waters end in strife.

May what I say be what will heal

and may it be heartfelt and real.
