You are the One. All That is, is You…
Like the waters of a river, life flows. Like the color of moonlight against the dusk, life changes. Like a flower blossoming with love, life unfolds to me a fragrance opening my doors to awareness. It is my own essence. I let It embrace me, because without It, I am not.
by Jasmine Kang
Returning like a long lost memory,
Every moment I traced by heart.
I still remember the sound of the rain showers
And the scent of the rain.
Now the skies are ever clear and blue.
Like ripples in the ocean,
I feel the separation.
I am seeking solace and guidance
Awakening at the dawn of a new day
When I am fresh and no longer distracted by what the mind says.
Unspoken words will describe the connection
That one is soul and that all souls are part of the Whole
And part of All that there is.
The flowers and trees do not speak,
But I can sense their harmony
Just as I cannot see what is unseen,
yet can feel its omnipresence.
The Divine is around me in hidden ways, but the Divine surely IS there.
It is hard to believe, something just told to me,
But faith takes me long ways.
Innumerable forms of vitality
Are ablaze with the Light.
Everything I see, hear, smell, taste
And touch is all a mystical art:
The flowers, the trees, the rivers and the sky,
The sun, the moon and the innumerable stars.
He hides Himself and reveals Himself.
His drama is an art that does not cease or separate.
We are ever distinct, yet ever united
As we are in Him,
And He is always with us
At the heart of all lives
For what is Life without!?
Life is the very essence.
What could be perceived as greater than existence?
This is that greatest gift
Giving identity to my life.
It is the spirit that awakens breath
Bringing me here.
Bringing me here.
