It is with sadness in my heart that today, International Day of Peace, is filled with anger and hate all around the world.  The most recent events of the American Film maker and his video has deliberately and intentionally hurt others.  I am so blessed to live in America where I have the freedom of speech, yet, with that freedom come great accountability to use words for the good of all.   No American has the right to use their privilege to hurt others.   I am also blessed with another great gift…the gift given by the Divine…by God.  The “FREEDOM TO CHOOSE,’ …today I choose love…I choose to use my words to deny anger, turn from hate, to love my brothers and sisters around the world.  You are all my family…Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, and all religions, we are one in this incredible universe.  We are one all connected through our hearts and love for God.

Several weeks ago I started working on this poem.  It was different for me and I was not sure where it was coming from.  As Peace day was approaching I know I would post it today.  Then the violence started.  Now I know, through prayer and meditation I have been called to reach out to all of you to join in hearts of love to denounce the violence.  I ask each of you to write something special today for Peace.  Boldly and confidently ask all your followers, friends, and family to put in their consciousness, thoughts and words of Peace…Use prayer…use meditation…use your words and thoughts to raise the peace vibrations around the world.  If we all start today with this we can spread the peace to millions very quickly.    I will use the words “peace…and world peace,” in mediation for the next few days and possibly weeks and months until the hurt is healed.   Regardless of where we live, or what our life situation is, we all have free choice…the choice to love, the choice to respect, the choice to embrace the beauty and divine nature of others.

Millions of stars sparkle in the sky.

Lighting the night, for human wishes to glide.

Under the stars the poets dream,

Lovers love, and conceive wishful things.

Stars illuminate the night,

Filling the earth with hope and light.

Upon the earth the humans roam,

Looking high into the night.

With wonder in their minds

They wish on the stars shinning bright.

They dream a dream

That all in the universe is alright.

What if the stars in the sky started to fight?

Grabbing and seizing each other’s light.

Seeing only what the other has,

And what they think they might.

With guns, tanks, and missiles,

The stars fight a selfish fight,

Extinguishing each other’s light.

Upon the earth the darkness falls.

Dimming the love and dreams of all.

Now, what if the stars looked down upon the earth,

And see trillions of humans as energy burst.

With great energy the earth does shine…

And the beauty grows like autumn sweet on a leafy vine.

Now what if, within that sight,

The stars watch the humans fight.

Wars between races, religions, and nationalities,

Spilled blood fills the land and water ways.

Waterfalls of misery cascade along the earth.

And the beauty once there,

Now violently fading away.

So perhaps the story should be told

That the stars shine bright each and every night.

The humans live with harmony flowing from heart to heart.

And love ignites both the sky and land,

And the universe of God flourishes.

So if you look up in the sky,

Or the stars look down on the land,

All will shine with Spirits Divine Light.

And through the message of love all will exist

In God’s eternal bliss.

Within the darkness

I hang my head in sorrow.

Within the darkness

I lose sight of tomorrow.

Within the darkness

 My love festers.

Within the darkness

My light is dim.

Within the darkness

Joy lingers.

Within the darkness

I raise my eyes to Thee.

Within the darkness

The old fades away.

Within the darkness

The new is born.

From the darkness comes

What I am looking for.

I find my way by the light of my soul.

I find my love still burning like coal.

I find my path you lead me so freely.

I find my words you gave to me.

I find my heart

You so embrace within me.

Within the light I shine

Within the light I dine.

I dine on the Eternal feast

You so graciously prepared for me.

Within the light I live

Where an overflowing joy abounds.

Within your source I exist

I exist within heart and mind.

I exist within my cells and organs.

I exist as millions of particles

And all in unity of one.

My one

A one of trillions within this universe.

And trillions within the One.

All within One Source

The One Power

The One Love

The One God and Force.

The Manifesting One

That lives within me.

There is completeness

Within this Unity.

My life is a journey with an unknown plan

I’ve tread through dark water and deep quick sand

For so long Lord I took a path without you

I stumbled and crawled not knowing what to do

And in the silence within I chose to sit out of view

Perhaps it was shame, sadness or greed

That kept me from following your lead

During this time my heart was numb

As I silence the light within

Occasionally, I would glance at you

And you would brighten your light in love of me

Yet, Lord I refused to move any closer to Thee

And when I looked in the mirror I could not see

Your beauty in the reflection of me

There was a hollow wither within

A place of emptiness without you

I tried so hard to fill the space

Yet, the journey of life I accepted without your Grace

While there were times of happiness, success and joy

I could not feel through my chosen void

For so long, Lord I looked for the earthly stuff to fill that place

When all I had to do was to enter your Space

Then one day within the silence of my mind

I lifted my veil for me to see

So now my journey proceeds with you

The path so clear and with each step… I shed my earthly fears

As your beckoning light brightens

My step quickens

For now Lord I am one within Thee

(March 2012)

The Lord has blessed me throughout my life.  Regardless of losing sight of God for a time I am now living in union with Spirit.   I have arrived in the present with Spirit strong and loving within and that is all that matters.

This morning as I sit and write I feel such completeness that God has given me these words and this incredible opportunity to share them with you.  If one or a thousand people read this blog it does not matter.   I will let these words be my song of universal love…universal learning…universal knowing…. These words may resonate within you and may help you start your search for the light within. Or they may feel different than how you know God.   However, my words  impact you it is with good intent I share my experiences and love.   The Truth of God is the Truth of Me…            God Is…I am.
