Dissolve into Love

The earthly details dissolve into the radiance of Love.

House Built of Kisses

We live in a house built of kisses, each one bestowed by the Beloved’s lips.   Whether health or sickness, ultra-conservative or flaming liberal, lilting flute or barking dog, toxic swamp or crystalline lake, all are essential to the whole abode that coaxes and pushes us to the inner-most home.   Here we realize we are […]

The True Ruler

You are the true ruler of the only free world, elected every moment you enter the now.   Imbibe of the Beloved’s power and grace within, and then lead wisely.   Instill each second with the generosity of the sun giving its warmth without expectation; the harmony of the planets, each one unique while orbiting together; and the […]

Dance to the Song Within

A tap on my shoulder signals me to step into the center of a circle of partygoers. This is a dance-off on an autumn Sunday night. A thin, bearded man has also been tagged and now stands in front of me. I start moving in an odd way, what feels like Elaine’s notorious dance on Seinfeld. I’ve never been […]

Loving Beyond the Cliff Edge

We ride horses across the plains, the air bittersweet with sage and sunflowers. I tie my bay to a ponderosa, as my brother, sister-in-law, and niece secure their horses.   We hike to a cliff overlooking Coyote Creek, a pooling oasis that trickles down from the Turkey Mountains.   My brother hands me the box, […]

United by Our Essence

Oh virga, blue curtain in the sky I envy you. Suspended there in the glowing light never do you fall upon the ground, swirl down the drain, or lose yourself in a muddy puddle.   Instead your icy tendrels simply evaporate.   But I am a river riding across the contours of this rocky earth as the […]

My Memory Is for My Beloved

  My memory is for my Beloved. Mind wants to use it to… ride the merry-go-round of the past, dwell on playground kisses and slaps, count my Monopoly money.   Actually… If memory were a book each page would only contain His image.   If memory were a movie every frame would be filled with […]

The Moon Serenades the Sun

  With every orbit my love waxes for You. The power of your brilliance awakens this dead rock.   In those times when I must go dark— hide behind our friend Earth the longing fills my craters my Plato, Copernicus, and Kepler, to the brim.   But when your effulgence again shines on my Sea […]

The Glorious Saturation

When the rain pours down onto my shoulders and hair I run for cover. But in this desert there is no shelter except for a scrawny piñon or juniper tree.   I have no choice but to let the rain drench my t-shirt and shorts, soak into my skin and my very bones.   I […]

Simply Be

  The mountain does not try to be majestic. It simply stands tall, letting the light and seasons play across its contours.   The river does not force itself to flow faster or uphill. It simply follows its own frolicking meander to the sea.   The sun does not compete with other stars in the […]
