This is a wonderful “as above, so below” shot of the Hanalei Pier, the backdrop mountains, and Hanalei Bay. But what’s missing? It is interesting how the pier itself, the heart of Hanalei Bay, is not reflected in the water. It has been swallowed up by the shadows of the mountains.
Don’t let the reality of who you trulu are, fade into the dark shadowy reflections, the temporary reflection. Do remember: I am a constant, stable, perfect, sparkling star, eternally alive.
The words I hear from the Source, from the One who knows me best, are as follows: “Have the thought of remaining constantly stable and constantly shine like the Sun. Be a constant Comforter of Hearts…constantly stay in this awareness.”
I am also reminded that my “original stage is the flying stage and this will allow me to overcome any problem in a second, so that nothing below becomes a problem…Have the faith that you are holding onto the Father’s hand and you will continue to move forward. Even if you are weak, your Companion is strong. This is why you can go across.”
“May you be bodiless and pass with honors with the stagae of being detached…have the practice of remaining beyond your words and thoughts. Let your soul become merged in the Ocean of Peace. At the end only the bodiless stage will be useful…and make you victorious.”
It is a wonder that only when I have a changeless sense of who I am, can real change happen with more grace and ease!
Our original nature is pure, happy, unlimited, peaceful, wise and blissful. When this is not my experience, it is time to take a gentle look as to what is dominating my awareness.
This gentle look is facilitated by stepping into the softness of my inner world through meditation. When I access this safe place and anchor in, I can have a good look around. Change takes place naturally and consciously through contemplation, self-reflection, and meditation.
Contemplating on how others should change or how the world should change is mostly fruitless. The only one I can change is myself…and when I change, the world around me also changes. This is the wonder of the “unified field”. Change happens most gracefully through the power of awareness and self-clarity.
Go inward today, have a nice look around, and ask yourself how would I like to practice change today? Be amazed by the results!!!
I am responsible for all that I experience. I am responsible for all perceptions and feelings. In a three-dimensional world is there anything that can be considered objective? We are all living subjectively. Remind yourself of this and go beyond your own mind! Do not be under the influence of transitory perceptions of reality. Go beyond the situation and immerse yourself in an Ocean of Silence, an Ocean of Peace.
Receive truth from this space. Get into a wavelength that is beyond the problem or issue that you are facing in order to receive a greater power. This is how to resolve difficulties and obstacles. Occasionally a trusted friend who knows you very well can be of assistance. But for the most part, turn your attention to the Invisible Friend, the One without a body, the One who has never stopped loving you, even for a moment.
The downpour of divine love that quickens the heart
makes it like an ocean, makes it begin to vibrate,
begin to live,
to give forth with energy and life,
to unleash tidal waves of spiritual emotion, embracing all beings.
Knock agains the walls of the shell so that the whole power of your heart
streams forth, flooding the Universe.
Find accomodation in all those hearts that you have touched upon,
from the moment that you have touched deeply upon the heart.
Think of all those hearts you have quickened.
Feel into the Light in the Heart of those whose Light you enhanced by your love.
See if you can get an answer to your heart’s greatest longing by knocking upon the door of your Heart.
Strike upon the gong until the gong opens up into wider spaces.
Life, itself, strikes upon your heart.
Life is knocking at the Door,
So that you may receive the answer.
Blessed is the answer which uproots the questions…
Should I do this? Should I do that?
Am I flooding the world with Joy? Or
Am I creating concern and unhappiness?
There is the Answer.
You can’t find the answer in the mind.
For as soon as you knock at the door of the heart
The heart becomes a living receptacle.
Watch your mind scuttling itself
Before the immensity of the power of the Heart,
so that you have lost all sense of it being your heart.
It is no longer your heart,
It has become the heart of the Divine Beloved
Moving through you.
p.s. I have been carrying around this poem on some slips of paper for a long time now. Wonder if anyone knows the source of this poem, the poet, the tradition from whence this poem has emerged. I’ve googled it, but to no avail!
Thank you for all responces!!!

What is a found poem?
It’s like Finding sparkle in the middle of a gray day.
It’s like Finding humility in the crowdedness of arrogance.
It’s like Finding the spark of truth in the gloom of falsehood.
It’s Finding kindness at the bottom of your forsaken heart.
And Most of All It Is:
Knowing the dawn will come after the darkest, darkest of nights,
Believing in yourself quietly in a loud and racuous world,
Hearing the heartbeat of the Mother,
Knowing the rise and fall of the breath of the Father,
Knowing your connection with the Silence will prevail and,
Being ‘long lost and now found’
By the One who has loved you
In order to become a special soul, see the speciality in every soul. Pick up the pearl of virtue, rather than the stone of defect. In this be like the Holy Swan which has a wonderful ability to discern what to choose and what to disgard. For to see the faults in others is your own defeat; it is like eating impure food. Concentrate on the positive, see the positive, feed the positive, and emerge the positive in another by concentrating on the truth that lies within each soul.
