FrigidI feel the cold, and the stinging of the ice, and the loneliness of this remote spot in the forest of the world, but I am not truly touched by any of these.

I am not alone. I am one with the Only.

I do not suffer. My joy is the Supreme.

I do not miss the beauty of dangerous things,

like freezing cold and loving people and family and clinging.

But I will not be taken in by them.

I will not be owned by them.

I will light my fire in the midst of the winter storm,

and it will burn with the light of God.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

MistWho are you, Lord? Who are you really? What is the secret you are keeping?

I close my eyes and look within and glimpse your light in my heart.

But I go to where you hang on a cross, and monks sing about your mercy and grace, and you whisper to me.

And I go to where you sit in deep meditation, and they worship you in many languages and give you flowers, and you make me cry with joy.

And I go to wild places and sit by waters, under ancient trees, and feel some breeze that is more than wind.

And in the briefest of visions, I saw your light in the hearts of others.

You are the mystery of myself and the mystery of all. Reveal your great love to us, and all wrong things will be set right.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

2010 11-10 51I see you everywhere.

You stand tall above us, looming in your majesty,

And you crouch before us in humility.

You are everything and everyone.

How can I call you by one name?

Let me call you by every name,

Serve you in every being,

Love you in every way,

Remember you with every thought.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

2010 10-13 LBL 05I am always alone,

For I am always one.

One without a second.

There is nothing in the world but me.

I am the all in all.

I am in all, and all in me.

There is none other.

Just being.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.
