LOOK WITHIN by Jasmine Kang

 I have been searching for the meaning of life…

I have been trying to see for myself what the Truth really is. It is only then that I realize that It has always been with me deep within my heart and in my soul.

Life is not just that which is before one, but that which is in one. It is all in the heart. It is all with Love. It is the essence of what is.

Look Within

The face is changing in the mirror.
What was one day is not today.
What does one see? 
Is there more to the face than what is seen?
Do you believe? 
Belief comes from the heart. 

The heart yearns for the universal Truth.
An ocean breeze caresses me. 
The spirit sings in me, and dances to the tune 
That rings against my heart.
Every day is a guide into the self. 
It's like a song: a forever unending song. 

It's like when the wind blows again and again 
As if someone's calling you,
And you feel something
Like a raindrop that falls
And touches your soul, 
And everything changes. 

You want to fly away, 
You want to be free,
But freedom is not there. 
It is already here.
You only have to look within, 
And you will be flying. 

Life is such a mystery, profound and deep,
Like the depths of the oceans and the seas.
Even in nothing, there is something.
If only you could look inside and see. 
This is your home, 
The temple of everlasting love and light. 

Even if you're lost and lose the way,
You're not alone. You never were. You never will be.
We are all wanderers in the Whole on this journey.
We are all looking and searching for a way.
We can all find the way back where we belong.
Wherever you are, wherever you're going, just look within.

MY HEART SEEPS by Edith Lazenby

Courage is not only facing fear, but also looking past fear, to see what lies it tells and truths it saves...
Sometimes I sit at a computer in trepidation. The house trembles and I wonder what I will find. 
Truth is not a fact or a feeling. It may rest on love’s heart and walk with integrity. It may stand beyond humanity in ways we can only imagine. Truth can be solid as earth and fickle as wind. But a wind can know stillness and the earth can crack wide open.
Tonight I found a stillness in a crack and managed to balance there...

My Heart Seeps
by Edith Lazenby
I cannot hold on And I cannot let go. I walk a path I don’t know. I feel moonlight But cannot see Its orb midst The cloudy cold. My hands tremble. My eyes tear. My toes wriggle To grasp earth. I want to stand Tall in the light Yet fear shadows all. Inside I crumble Under the weight I cannot shoulder.

IMAGINE A WOMAN by Patricia Lynn Reilly

This poem invites you to look upon yourself with loving kindness…
Gazing at your own true reflection, you will discover that everything you have longed for “out there” is already within you! I invite you to love your creativity fiercely. Faithfully plant seeds, allowing under-the-ground dormant seasons, nurturing your creative garden with love and gratitude. In the fullness of time, the green growing things thrust forth from the ground. It's a faithful, trustworthy process. AND it takes time and patience.  Blessed is the fruit of your creative womb! I invite you to trust your vision of the world and express it. With wonder and delight, paint a picture, create a dance, write a book, and make up a song. To give expression to your creative impulses is as natural as your breathing. Create in your own language, imagery, and movement. Follow no script. Do not be limited by the customary way things have been expressed. Your creative intuition is original. Gather all of life into your inner c…

DEPRESSION by Veronica Carpenter

Here goes my vulnerability A heart on a sleeve The typical person who looks at me May not see the same me that I live with daily The mind in the air, swirling with possibility When the darkness rallies/gathers/swirls When I am left to solitude This paper-thin garb unzips Here comes depression          
No I don’t want to advertise So flash a smile Those who are close get to see Through the veil, it’s really not that thick Circumstances in life like to stab at the rib Stumble, fall behind the door Shut out the world Feelings well and weigh down Strength hidden deep in the core So deep that sometimes it’s forgotten Here comes the darkness My old friend Sweeping through my every move  Doubts, fears, un-named masked men Oozing like honey, sticking to everything
Patience is required to get on this ride There is a cycle but its pattern is unknown Slowly my gift will unwrap itself Stay on the path Coming back to that which never truly left me Just laid sleeping out of exhaustion from the fight Dormant in winter…
