Why

I had a dream last night
that I died and The Lord
asked me, why?
Why when I was alive I
wasnโ€™t myself?

And all the excuses that had once
served me well, now didnโ€™t mean a thing,
because in Truth? I never dared
go out on That limb,

to the place the Lord later shared, held
her most precious fruits-
a place where I never could lose.

I cried that night, deep, bitter tears of regret,
then tears of Joy when I arose, and realised
there was still time, yet.

And never again did I forget
to re-member myself-and respond
to The Call to Share and Express,
those God, Given, Talents.

On My Kind Of Love..

Kahlil Gibran – 1883-1931

On Love…

Then said Almitra, Speak to us of Love.
     And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them. And with a great voice he said:
     When love beckons to you, follow him,
     Though his ways are hard and steep.
     And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
     Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
     And when he speaks to you believe in him,
     Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.

     For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
     Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
     So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
     Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself
     He threshes you to make your naked.
     He sifts you to free you from your husks.
     He grinds you to whiteness.
     He kneads you until you are pliant;
     And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for Godโ€™s sacred feast.

     All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Lifeโ€™s heart.

     But if in your heart you would seek only loveโ€™s peace and loveโ€™s pleasure,
     Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of loveโ€™s threshing-floor,
     Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
     Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
     Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
     For love is sufficient unto love.

     When you love you should not say, โ€œGod is in my heart,โ€ but rather, โ€œI am in the heart of God.โ€
     And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

     Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.
     But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
     To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
     To know the pain of too much tenderness.
     To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
     And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
     To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
     To rest at the noon hour and meditate loveโ€™s ecstasy;
     To return home at eventide with gratitude;
     And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

Peace & Love,

Black history for life…

Black history, like a pet, is not just for October, it’s for life, and more importantly, for the National Curriculum. One of the main purposes of History – Personal & Collective – is to look back to learn; to look back to Evolve, Progress & Grow…NOT TO glorify & justify atrocious inhumane decisions and violence. Not to mis-educate & perpetrate propaganda…And we wonder about the state of the world!? The state of our Personal & Collective…This is not rocket science, just simple mathematics.

24 hours With Grace

Gracious Grace, I am finally Allowing to visit today.

I didn’t realise how perfectly Grace Knows,

The Way;

Grace Picked Me Up and swept me away

from all angst and pain; with the paradox being,

I had to Allow Original Pain in to Receive Her.

Grace Amaziness IS…

Yielding, though far from compromising; invisible, yet

Blindingly Present, Everywhere…

Yes, Grace has Great Gifts to Give, and I am, in this time,

Allowing myself to it;

In This Time, Yielding, Releasing, Fore Giving….

Getting out the way so Grace can reach me and show me

how Great Life Truly Is…in its ISness…

How Comforting Grace Is Also!

In Her Presence I want for nothing: NO-THING!

Her Love for Us is Unlimited and is filled with

Impeccable Miraculous-ness.

I plan to keep letting Her in, until

She Is More inside than out,

and I Come to Know what life In The Here

& The Now Is All about…

Peace & Love,

Light…๐Ÿ’›

Outside The Spiritual Closest…

I AM A SPIRITUAL BEING TRYING TO HAVE A HUMAN EXPERIENCE AS BEST I CAN WITHIN THE CONFINES OF HUMAN LIFE; THOUGH IN SPIRITUAL REALITY I AM, BIGGER THAN ALL THATโ€ฆ

EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS ON THIS EARTHPLANE, DEEP DOWN I KNOW, DO & DOES PASS, SO I NEED NOT FREAK OUT TOO MUCH- IF AT ALL, AT EVERY INCONVIENCE, EVERY PAIN; EVERY CHALLENGE, ANY TURN…

FEELINGS & MENTAL STATES PASSES, AS DOES HAPPINESS; BUT JOY, LASTING HAPPINESS’S ELDER SISTER, IS EVERLASTING, ESPECIALLY WHEN I AM, AND WHEN I STAND, IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF MY BEING BIGGER THAN ALL THAT.

SO, THE WORD IS: LIFE IS NOW; PROTECT YOUR NOW…THE TIME IS NOW, AS NOW IS THE ONLY PLACE TO BE, TO BREATHE, TO LIVE, TO LOVE, TO DREAM : TO HAVE OUR BEING.

AS A SPIRIUAL BEING I AM RE-VISITING ALL THIS; RE-MEMBERING ALL THAT, AND KNOWING I HAVE THE CHOICE TO CHOOSE LASTING HAPPINESS, OR NOTโ€ฆ

CHOOSING HAPPINESS IS AN ACT OF COURAGE FOR HUMANS, JUST AS BEING WHO WE TRULY ARE UNFORTUNATELY IS AS WELL…

SO, HELLO, LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO MY VERY BIG FRIEND…

A BEING WITHOUT BEGINNING, BEING WITHOUT END...

BIGGER THAN ALL THIS AND ALL THAT..

WAY ABOVE ALL ELSE..

PEACE & LOVE,

LIGHT..
