The Moment of Mergence



"In death all of your individual identities are shed, ending the separation of you, at last." channeled from Neale Donald Walsch, "Home with God"

"...Now, into this Openness where shame and pride once coexisted, a new feeling is being poured. First it felt as if the outside of the soul is being covered, now it feels as if the outside of the soul is being filled. Again, words cannot be found to adequately define or accurately describe this feeling...partly because the feeling is so huge...a feeble attempt would call it the feeling of being warmly embraced, deeply comforted, dearly cherished, profoundly appreciated, genuinely treasured, softly nurtured, profoundly understood, completely forgiven, wholly absolved, long awaited, happily welcomed, totally honored, joyously celebrated, absolutely protected, instantly perfected, and unconditionally loved-all at once."- 
also from the book, "Home with God", his final "Conversation with God".

May we all at some point, even now when reading these words, have an experience of love and inner connection with whoever you choose to call God or higher power or loved one or nothing or everything...my wish for you in this moment and for you all ways...ms

My Most Beautiful Thing



Reconciliation has occurred-
Harmony; no worry, no controlling.
Two years of hoop jumping.
Finally, I'm the one who's really letting go.

With Stammering Lips...


  With stammering lips and insufficient sounds,
I strive and struggle to deliver right
the music of my nature...Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Pulling Out the Chair



Pulling out the chair
Beneath your mind.
And watching you fall upon God-

What else is there
For Hafiz to do
That is any fun in this world?

What is this precious love and laughter...


 What is this precious love and laughter
Budding in our hearts?
It is the glorious sound
Of a soul waking up!

It Happened Again Last Night


 It happened again last night:
 
Love
Popped the cork on itself-
Splattered my brains
Across the
Sky.

I imagine now for ages
Something of Hafiz
Will appear
To fall like
Stars.- Hafiz

Acrostic Mary



Acrostic Mary


Magic fills my life.
Allowing grace to unfold.
Resolution of the past.
Yes to my heart’s calling.

T
ime to simply “be”.

Hear the birdsong of the morning.
Evolution stirring quickly.
Reveling in nature’s splendor.
Embracing the unknown.
Simplicity.
Elegance of timing.

S
erendipity.

Humor.
Eyewitness to my life.
Resilience.
Manifestation.
Approaching life with curiosity.
Numinous.

I'd Rather...




I'd rather have roses on my table
than diamonds on my neck.
