let us exemplify the way
that we want to live
loving, peaceful, aware

let us share our perspectives
and seek to understand others’
let us accept and allow
our differences

let us be joyful and acknowledge
the beauty around us
and shine the beauty
we hold within

People of Israel

People of Israel

people of Israel wake up your hearts
your government is leading, yet you are responsible
for every life taken is one you have forsaken
each child, each mother, each grandparent gone
some other is crying, totally forlorn
a loss of such beauty that has been torn
out of the holy lands that you have forsaken
you are responsible for each life that is taken

the Earth is our Mother
the land to be shared
no one owns the privilege
and yet you have dared
to say you are more important
than others who have lived
we pray that those suffering will somehow forgive
and that you will bring peace to the land of the holy
where peace was the treasure and was measured solely
by how we cared for life, precious life
and how we were love and were loved

let us pray
and not waste an hour, a day
there is no room for revenge

the most powerful weapon in war
goes right to the core
it is love
love cannot be destroyed
and love cannot destroy life
it destroys hate
it replaces fear
let us rejoice in a season that’s near
and together usher in
Peace on Earth

The Beauty Of

The Beauty Of

behold the beauty of human transformation
we have returned to the beginning of time
full circle, completion of the great cycle
arrived to return to the divine

the beauty of now
the awakened awareness
the full presence of love and of light
we are finding our wings to take flight

we can now soar above the below
and see all that is there to behold
to take it all in and find the point
the point to begin and transform

the New is being born from all that we are
loving, radiant, each a new star
shining our love into the darkest of places
until all suffering is dissolved, leaving no traces

understanding and living the love that erases
fear, sorrow, loss, pain, judgement and greed
into the New where together we lead
as One Heart, the beloved of our Creator
