“Now, As You Awaken”… Poem by Mahmoud Darwish

Now, As You Awaken… Now, as you awaken, remember the swan’s last dance. Did you dance with young angels while you were dreaming? Did the butterfly light you up when it burned with the eternal light of the rose? Did the phoenix appear clearly before you and call you by your name? Did you see…

A quote from Neale Donald Walsch on “Awareness”

SPIRITUAL POEMS: “An Awakening”

“An Awakening” I am part of that flower growing there, I am part of  the birds flying high on the air, Everything flows from just one Source, A giant river of Life – a Force. As all the rivers connect to the sea, there is a connection ‘tween God and me, Creator of this Universe…
