Love Does That / Adventure Trip Next Week / This Friday: At School

“Love is the offspring
of Spiritual affinity
and unless that affinity
is created in a moment,
it will not be created
for years or even generations.”
– Kahlil Gibran

Life is the first gift, Love is the second, and Understanding the third.       – Marge Piercy

From the metal of clay
are made
we.

Of all things
ever created,
we were so Loved,
we were Lovingly made
to ever
be.

“The righteous
will possess the earth,

And they will live
forever on it.”

– Psalm 37:29

       Under a beautiful canopy

To share
the same Loving thoughts
as the One
who made you and me,
One who Loves us beyond Belief,
is living
as though one river
flows
from Sea
to Eternal Sea,
Gracefully moving
through you
and me.

Love is ever fluid
to those in need,
as rivers of affection crest
and overflow,
and rush with a mighty force
through the Divine Being
that dwells inside
every Heart that sings.

God’s Grace
is denied to none
and cannot be swayed
from ever flowing
to those
whose Heart is in Love,
and in
Prayerful need.

Like drops of rain
falling freely
through the sky,
all the tears
we cry
fill the seas of life,
and then run dry.

             To guide your feet

If you get to where your going
before the end
of your day,
before the tears run dry,
and things that do not matter
come to know your name,
your Heavenly Father
can show you the way
and
by the Grace of God,
you will never be
the same.

The Path to Salvation
lies under a beautiful
Canopy,
upheld by a mighty Forest
of unbelievably beautiful Belief,
planted in the Heart by God
to shelter you
from the storms
and assuage your grief,
to guide your feet,
and shade you
beneath beautiful clouds
of relief.

      Beautiful Clouds of relief.

In forgiving,
we forget
what now never was,
never is,
never again can be.
By the Light of God
you now can see,
and finally feel
truly free.

“Love is the immortal flow of energy that nourishes, extends and preserves. Its eternal goal is Life.”                            – Smiley Blanton

My Dear Friends,
if you look at
one star in the Heavens,
just ONE,
and gaze long enough,
everything else just disappears.
What you are left with
is ONE,
and only one,
bright and shining star
in the field of your vision,
in your mind,
in your Heart.

Everything else just disappears.

Such is the nature
of our reality,
of our Heart,
of our mind’s eye.

Try it sometime.

“Love is the strongest force
the world possesses,
and yet it is the humblest
imaginable.”
– Mahatma Gandhi

And if you look
with your Heart
at one other Heart
just ONE,
and for long enough,
everything else just disappears.
What you are left with
is one,
and only ONE,
precious thought of another.

Such is nature of
Love,
that it can remove everything else
in the Universe,
everything below,
everything above.

“I can see the distant light,
hear the music all surrounding,

That shatters the silence so heavy to bear,
Lifts my soul into the night,
fills my heart with Love abounding,

And brings me the peace
we all surely will share.”
– Cleo Laine & John Dankworth

Try it sometime.

In Loving someone so intently,
everything else
simply disappears:
your sorrows,
your fears
your pain and suffering,
your unbearable grief,
your heartaches and tears.

And when you awake
from what you believe
is a dream,
you
will have also
disappeared.

Such is the nature of our reality.

Love
does that.
It removes you,
from you.
And suddenly,
you are
what you come to
Love.

And a child
is re-born.

And Life
and Love
live again.

And you know
the words
to your Song.
And in the beauty
of the Dawn,
once again
you sing along.

Such is the nature of our mind’s eye.

Such is the
Love of God
for you.

If you look to the Heavens,
and Pray for the Love of God,
and for long enough,
everything else just disappears.
And what you are left with
is One,
and only One,
bright and shining Star.
And the Love of God
shines down
upon you.

Goodnight.

Everything else just disappears.

“Everyone says love hurts, but that isn’t true.
Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts.
Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love,
but in reality love is the only thing in this world
that covers up all pain and makes someone feel
wonderful again.
Love is the only thing in this world
that does not hurt.”
– unknown

the hope which has no opposite in fear;
the strength so strong mere force is feebleness:
the truth more first than sun,
more last than star… “
