Posts Tagged ‘Breathe of God’

This morning I was inspired to write as I watch the News broadcast about the death of Nelson Mandela.  An inspiring man whose life has transformed a country and was a role model of Spiritual Ascension.   While these words are in first person, I offer them in gratitude to honor his life and Spirit.

You are in the breath I breathe in the cool winter’s night,

You are the leafless tree’s silhouette in the early grey light.

There you are in the bellowing winds beckoning me.

Under the cloud covered moon with my heart’s Eternity.

I release myself to your embracing Divinity,

In this moment of my ecstasy.

For my Spirit continues its travel on the road of Infinity.

Now not a fear in sight, nor a sorrow to morn

Only the Divine goodness of Spirit’s love adorned.

In all of nature we find The Living Divine.
A Lord that creates beauty from a barren floor.
From the dirt the Bald Cypress rises…
And pays homage on bended knee.
Limbs lifted high worship The Source of Eternity.

The brook a sign of the life that flows from the spring below.
The fallen lotus a cherished path leading to the place to go.
Stop and bask into the waters falls…
See the reflection of light and God’s might.
The rocks removed from hidden places
Give life to a young boy’s vision.
A man made pond a manifestation of the Divine.
Spirit the “God stuff” we are made of…
Lives in each stone, plant and water drop.

Bow your head to the “Lunar Cross”
A blessed piece made of stone
That originated in God’s heart.
Sharing love through other hands.
It is a reminder to all who stand.
That light is always restored.
There is no darkness
No place where light is void.
For darkness is only a perception in human mind.

Within this enchanted garden sit and pray.
Feel the energy, love, and unity of The All in this day.

Several weeks ago I had the pleasure to volunteer in a local garden tour.  I was assigned a beautiful garden hidden in my community.  In my small tight knit community (historic and crowded) I was amazed to find this divine spot.  It was a manifestation of God.  Dreamed of by a young boy, now grown into a man who grew up on the land.  He told me, even as a child while playing on the land, climbing the rocks, playing in the brook he imaged the pond and waterfall he would build and the things he would do to create a beautiful place.  Everything he did within his garden was created from the resources on the land.  He used a fallen lotus tree to pave a path leading to the patio surrounding the pond and waterfall.  The magnificent waterfall was created from the rocks that were hidden in the wooded areas of his property. He used old glass bottles found on the land to craft an artistic display of glass with metal rods along the brook.  Right next to the waterfall stood an incredible stone carved totem pole, topped with a lunar cross, that was a collaboration with the home  owner and two other artist.  As I gazed at the totem pole I felt the love and energy of the Divine Manifestation that occurred on the land.  The energy flowed through me with a cleansing and invigorating wave leaving me with a deep feeling of peace and oneness.  I felt overwhelming gratitude to be there and to share in the beauty. The Divine knew what I needed and how to show me love…I am so thankful for the outpouring of love and clarity I received that day. ” I raise my cup with gratitude, Knowing the Divine Outpouring will fill it to the brim.”  I used this affirmation in prayer in the Divine garden.   Namaste.

seed-of-light-award1

I am honored to be nominated by Soumya for the “Seed of Light” award. I love the name of the award and the idea that my words/poems can be a “seed of light” for another.

Soumya has always been a “seed of light” for me since I started this blog.   She is creative and has tirelessly dedicated herself to her blogs and writing.    Over this past 15 months she has always used her kind and loving words to encourage myself and others. I am very touched and appreciative that Soumya continues to see good in my words.  Please visit it at http://soumyav.wordpress.com and I know you will enjoy and grow through her wonderful post.
I have received other awards since starting this blog and I must admit, I often feel mixed emotions.  It is a lovely gesture, and heart warming to receive appreciation from others who find something meaningful in my words.  Yet, I am still new in my journey and soaking up the images, knowledge of others, learning from their words and views and I often feel not yet ready for the accolades.  Perhaps learning to accept is part of my learning

Many blogs I follow are poetry, spiritual, and religious in nature from all over the world with many different cultural influences.  All of these blogs bring to me a greater understanding of who I am within the loving embrace of God and with each of you in unity within the consciousness.  As a novice blogger I know there are thousands of blogs out there spreading “seeds of light” and inspiring thousands and millions of souls with their photos, art, music and words.   At this time I have only dipped my toe into the sea of blogs. So today I choose to honor Soumya’s acknowledgement with a poem….called “Seed of Light” and I dedicate this to all bloggers who share in love their creativity and the lessons of their journey.

 

Adrift within the breath of the wind,

      floating to a barren land.

Landing gently among the dirty grain,

      bathed so lovingly by the rain.

A seed of light,

      buried by worldly debris.

In a place where no one

      would think it may be.

Hidden in a place without light,

      the seed is a speck…a sparkle…that ignites.

A seed of light sent out by the Lord

      is growing on your heart’s shore.

A breath, a sigh, the light illuminates the soul inside.

A twinkle from a star so far

      has great power to transform who you are.

Adrift in the life you live

      the gift of the soul to give.

A moment in time to take

      the Lord’s love into your heart and mind.

An emotion and gift so deep,

      the seeds of light become the roots

      that anchor you to Divine belief.

A seed of light adrift within the wind

 Is a gift the Lord does give.

May all your seeds shine in the glory of God’s light!

Namaste, mary

Light of Creation

***************************************

The light
Shines brightly over the earth
As a reminder of Divine birth.
The Creator and One Source
Breaths the air that blows it’s course
Fills the creeks, rivers, and ocean deep.
Created the land under our feet.
The Divine Presence is all we see
In the beauty of the world
That was created so perfectly.

Blue Aurora

Blue Aurora – Grundarfjörður, Iceland – Peerakit Jirachetthakun

featured on photobotos.com 12/8/2012

*****

A burst of color in the sky,

The Aurora a Diva of the Divine,

A Roman Goddess of the Dawn

Ignites the sky in a majestic cry.

To announce the sun and the coming day

The beauty of the Aurora paves the way.

Whether blue or green,

She sings her praise,

With a heart full of love

The world is lite from above.

The beauty of the night sky

Is a reminder of the Divine.

The Spirit of the Universe

Is where all good is birthed.

Breathe in the essence of the dawning day

And allow your Spirit to guide you on your way.

A breath immersed within the winds or gentlest of breeze.

A breath that ignites the Spirit

To glow within the human breed.

The dawning day like the embers of a fire

ignites life into a blaze of light.

The darkening day of the setting sun

brings rest and healing to all

who dwell beneath the skies.

The glory of God in every breath of man.

It is the breath of the Lord we breathe.

The vision within The Mind

is the vastness and perfection within the universe.

The completeness and uniqueness of all God’s creatures.

Whether seen or unseen

is the Glory of God

the reflection of perfection in which we live.

Beneath our feet the Lord holds us up

as we walk through the gardens and streets.

God cuddles us as we lay to rest

and sings a sweet lullaby that brings us peace.

It is the Lord who restores us

when we choose to see the divinity

within this heavenly place.

It is the Lord who gives us what we need

and exceeds all expectations

when we choose Love

in all decisions we make.

It is the Lord who I see

when I look into your face…

Night Dreams

Whispers of Eternity” – Adraga Beach, Portugal – Jorge Maia – Featured Photographer

Once upon a dream on a starry night

The land of God arose from the sea

Leaving the water to sit so tranquilly.

In the stillness of this night

The Spirit’s breath moved the earth

To divide the sea.

And now the darkness glows across the world

As the love of Spirit embraces you and me.

It is the essence of God that manifest

The world we see.

It is Divine Law that all created so perfectly. 

In the still of this night along the sea

There is Spiritual Splendor moving in the gentle breeze.

The mystical world of God’s Divinity

Is laid out across our universe

For all God’s children to live their life in harmony. 

In the life of a Soul

The day and night on this earthly plane

Is just a fleeting flash of light.   

God knows the struggles within the human race

Are thoughts without power nor grace.     

The wars between humans will fade away

As the world we know is transformed

By the Heavenly Glow.

The illumination of God’s Divine plan

Has been set in motion

It is Eternal Life for every child, woman and man.

So hear the Lord in the Whisper of Eternity

And watch the darkness glow

Into the life of love and harmony.
