MYSTICAL POEMS: “Deathless” By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Deathless   There lies in the centre of each man’s heart A longing and love for the good and pure; And if but an atom, or larger part, I tell you this shall endure—endure— After the body has gone to decay— Yea, after the world has passed away. The longer I live and the more…

A quote “From a flight of Swans” by Rabindranath Tagore

When dew falls as tears from the morning sky, When riverside trees sparkle in sunlight, So close in my heart their shadows fall, Then I know That the Universe is a floating lotus In the holy lake of my mind. Then I know: I am the voice within the Voice, The song within the Song,…

MYSTICAL POEMS: “Justice” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

Justice However inexplicable may seem     Event and circumstance upon this earth, Though favours fall on those whom none esteem,     And insult and indifference greet worth; Though poverty repays the life of toil,     And riches spring where idle feet have trod, And storms lay waste the patiently tilled soil–     Yet Justice sways…

POEMS: “Wordless Whispers” by Mystic Meandering

Wordless Whispers…   Who is here for you, in your vulnerability, your fragility? Maybe you talk to “God”… The Buddha, maybe Allah, or the Divine Mother…? It doesn’t matter what “God” you believe in.. “The Mystery” holds them all… What comforts you? What calms your agitated mind? Can you feel the invisible arms around your…

Mystical Poems: “Hidden gems” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Hidden Gems We know not what lies in us, till we seek.     Men dive for pearls—they are not found on shore; The hillsides, most unpromising and bleak,     Do sometimes hide the ore. Go, dive in the vast ocean of thy mind,     O man! far down below the noisy waves, Down in the…

POEMS: “Turn inward” by Mystic Meandering

Turn Inward… Turn… inward, toward “The Silence;” The Light in your Heart; the space of Pure Awareness… Turn from the voices of an unconscious world; the voices of confusion, hatred, and ignorance; the ones who distract you from *knowing* the Truth of who you are… ~ Turn ~ Turn and Listen in the deep Silence,…

NATURE POEMS: “A Prayer in Spring” by Robert Frost

“A Prayer in Spring”     OH, give us pleasure in the flowers today; And give us not to think so far away As the uncertain harvest; keep us here All simply in the springing of the year. Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white, Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;…

MYSTICAL POEMS: “The shape of Love” by Adyashanti

  The Shape of Love What we see is not the most important. Could dust rise without the invisible hand of the wind? Could a fan turn without any current? Could lungs breathe without breath? Tell me What is the shape of Love? How much does Joy weigh when held in the palm of your…

“Love with no object” by Rumi

Love with no object. There is a way of loving not attached to what is loved. Observe how water is with the ground, always moving toward the ocean, though the ground tries to hold water’s foot and not let it go. This is how we are with wine and beautiful food, wealth and power, or…

POEMS: “Rise Above The Fear” by Trina Graves

Lilac-breasted Roller in flight Rise Above The Fear   Fear always stalks Seeking to find a way To take hold and enter Our psyche every day Doubts and insecurities Riddle in our mind Clogging up our energy Then negativity we find Blinkered in our sight Seeming darkness all around It’s easy to sink deeper Unless a…

POEMS: “Bridge of Prayer” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Bridge of Prayer The bridge of prayer from heavenly heights suspended     Unites the earth with spirit-realms in Space. The interests of those separate worlds are blended     For those whose feet turn often toward that place. In troubled nights of sorrow and repining,     When joy and hope seem sunk in dark despair, We…

“The legacy of trees”…. amazing article (and video 18 minutes)

    Like humans, trees are extremely social creatures, utterly dependent on each other for their survival. And, as it is with us, communication is key. After scientists discovered pine tree roots could transfer carbon to other pine tree roots in a lab, ecology professor Suzanne Simard set out to figure out how they did…

POEMS: “Morning Poem” by Mary Oliver

  Morning Poem Every morning the world is created. Under the orange sticks of the sun the heaped ashes of the night turn into leaves again and fasten themselves to the high branches — and the ponds appear like black cloth on which are painted islands of summer lilies. If it is your nature to…

Animal POEMS: “The Naming Of Cats” by T S Eliot

“The Naming Of Cats”   The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter, It isn’t just one of your holiday games; You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES. First of all, there’s the name that the family use daily, Such…

A quote by Neale Donald Walsch about “Art”

art by Josephine Wall “music”… “Art begs you to notice it.   Why? Because art is God’s way of saying hello. So pay attention to poetry. Pay attention to music. Pay attention to paintings and sculptures and photo exhibits and ballets and plays. Don’t let all this go unnoticed. Your world is shouting out to…

POEMS: “Being a person, even in quiet places” by William Stafford

Be a person here. Stand by the river, invoke the owls. Invoke winter, then spring. Let any season that wants to come here make its own call. After that sound goes away, wait. A slow bubble rises through the earth and begins to include sky, stars, all space, even the outracing, expanding thought. Come back…

A wisdom quote from Swami Sivananda on our actions and thoughts…

A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching. —Swami Sivananda

A Mystical Prayer to start the day

God of My Heart, in the silence of the day that dawns, I come to ask of you peace, wisdom, and strength. Today may I look at the world with eyes filled with love. May I be patient, understanding, kind, and wise. May I see your children beyond appearances, as you yourself see them, and…

PROFOUND POEMS: “Passerby, These are Words” by Yves Bonnefoy

Passerby, These are Words Passerby, these are words. But instead of reading I want you to listen: to this frail Voice like that of letters eaten by grass. Lend an ear, hear first of all the happy bee Foraging in our almost rubbed-out names. It flits between two sprays of leaves, Carrying the sound of…

A quote from Neale Donald Walsch on your job

Your job, your invitation from the Universe, is to give people back to themselves.   You can do this every day, in a hundred ways. Why not practice it with the first three people you encounter after reading this? It is really a very easy thing to do — yet it can affect a person…

A quote from Neale Donald Walsch on trusting your inner knowing

It would not be beneficial to believe your Mind on matters that are very important to you. Your Mind can base its conclusions only on Past Data that it has collected during your present experience of Physicalization. It has no knowledge of things existing through all Eternity. In order to access data having to do…

“Honoring life” by Susana @ Holistica2be (re-blogged)

Originally posted on Holistica2be:
Honoring life is the ultimate way of living. From an awakened standpoint, we are able to step into a state of deep gratitude for the grace of our earthly, felt-as-heavenly experience, and into an admiration state for all life – ours and of others. Not just humans, but of all…
