Through and Through

Through the depths of shadow and darkness I learned how to heal. Through shame and guilt I have learned to forgive. Through torture I have found inspiration. Through losing all trust I found Trust. Through wanting to die I have never chosen to live more. Through suffering I found care for everyone around me. Through a broken man I found […]

Call Me by My True Names

Call Me by My True Names   Do not say that I’ll depart tomorrow because even today I still arrive. Look deeply: I arrive in every second to be a bud on a spring branch, to be a tiny bird, with wings still fragile, learning to sing in my new nest, to be a caterpillar […]

A Satisfied Mind – Johnny…

A Satisfied Mind – Johnny Cash

 A Satisfied Mind

How many times have
You heard someone say
If I had his money
I could do things my way

But little they know
That it’s so hard to find
One rich man in ten
With a satisfied mind

Once I was waitin’
In fortune and fame
Everything that I dreamed for
To get a start in life’s game

Then suddenly it happened
I lost every dime
But I’m richer by far
With a satisfied mind

Money can’t buy back
Your youth when you’re old
Or a friend when you’re lonely
Or a love that’s grown cold

The wealthiest person
Is a pauper at times
Compared to the man
With a satisfied mind

When my life has ended
And my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones
I’ll leave there’s no doubt

But one thing’s for certain
When it comes my time
I’ll leave this old world
With a satisfied mind

How many times have
You heard someone say
If I had his money
I could do things my way

But little they know
That it’s so hard to find
One rich man in ten
With a satisfied mind

Someone Should Start Laughing

I have a thousand brilliant lies For the question: How are you? I have a thousand brilliant lies For the question: What is God? If you think that the Truth can be known From words, If you think that the Sun and the Ocean Can pass through that tiny opening Called the mouth, O someone […]

Let us look plainly at our man-made structures, watching them closely when the rains come in Where does our truth flow when the vital course rushes through them? Shall we we open and move like water from complexity to calm- taking to the path with the least of resistance? Will we not then work together […]

Seventh Time Around

Talk to me Oh, the seventh time around When all other cards are flung from the deck When all the little things are known Talk to me then Until that day: Sweep me under the rug (Like you will do) Oh and then- when I am not paying attention- Scoop me under the full moon […]
