Love, Papa.

When I can’t see
What you can envision.
But I can envision
That you can see
Then if you could envision
That I could see
Maybe I could become your vision,
You see!
For if what you see
Became my vision.
And we could share
The vision you see
Then everyone
Could begin to envision
That what you see
Could really be!
Perhaps then
We could all live happy and free!
Love, Papa.

The Beat!

The Beat!
Love, Papa.

When the voice of the one
Is heard above the sound of the many
Each will bow in silence
And feel the peace.
Let not the shouts and screaming
Drown the silence within you
For contained within each of us
Is the everlasting truth.
Listen only to the blade of grass
Or the stones beneath your feet
To hear the sounds of silence
Strumming out the beat!
Love, Papa.

Love, Papa.

Marvel at the grace with which life abounds
For it is not with effort that flowers grow
Rather with ease as each is released.
Not knowing or caring of another soul.
Without judgement, prejudice or malice.
A blessing offered.
A lesson presented.
A marvel beheld....when chosen!
Do you choose?
Love, Papa.

Just a Note.

Just a Note.
Love, Papa.

To the tiny men with huge egos
Who communicate their anger, using talking heads,
through shiny boxes in our living rooms:
“You act as the least among us”
For with each swipe of your pen that renders helpless another faceless soul
Know that you reduce the spirit of the one.
Thereby so too do you whither.
For a sword held high in defiance is always overshadowed
By one laid down in humility.
We are but servants of each other.
And our challenge is to rise above ourselves.
Forgive the trespasses
And step out of sync with the masses.
Love, Papa.

Love, Papa.

The light that emits from within you
Is the same light that shines within your enemy.
And the moment the light is extinguished in one
Both shall fall into darkness.
Be at peace with all beings.
For the contrast shown in another
Is nothing but evidence of your ability to grow.

Love, Papa.

Earthly Possessions

Earthly Possessions!
Love Papa.

Like collecting raindrops or counting blades of grass,
The value of what you possess remains only in your mind
For what can transfer with you when you leave this plane
Equals the that which you grasped in your hand when you arrived.
Earthly possessions will always remain,
Nothing but collections of dreams scattered near the departure gate.
Their measurement not a guideline of success,
Merely an indication of the pathway chosen by the collector.
Love Papa.
