Gloria in excelsis deo: Glory to God in the highest

Then, dear Lord, for Thy great grace,
Grant us the bliss to see Thy face,
Where we may sing to Thy solace:

In excelsis gloria,
In excelsis gloria,
In excelsis gloria,
In excelsis gloria.

Glory to God in the highest!

Each day we bless you, and we praise your name forever and to the ages of ages.
Each day we bless you, and we praise your name forever and to the ages of ages.

Calm my mind, and rest my eyes

Love the moment and the energy of that moment will spread
beyond all boundaries into blissful, peaceful happiness.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;
His truth is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.

Beautiful Dreamer

Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me, Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee; Sounds of the rude world, heard in the day, Lull'd by the moonlight have all pass'd away! Beautiful dreamer, dream of my song, List while I woo thee with soft melody; Gone are the cares of life's busy throng, Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me! Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me! Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea, Mermaids are chanting the wild Lorelie; Over the streamlet vapors are borne,Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn. Beautiful dreamer, beam on my heart, E'en as the morn on the streamlet and sea; Then will all clouds of sorrow depart , Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me! Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!

The Third Door of Liberation

You are wonderful just the way you are. Enjoy everything that is refreshing and healing in the present moment. Be yourself. Life is precious as it is. Just be. We are at peace in the present moment, just seeing sunlight streaming through our window or hearing the sound of rain.We can enjoy every moment. We don't have to enter Nirvana, we're already there.
Words can travel thousands of miles,
May my words create mutual understanding and love.
May they be as beautiful as gems,
as lovely as flowers.

For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. Jeremiah 17:8


Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27

The Last of the Mohicans

When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.
Chief Aupumut

God is Love

"Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these. Mark 12: 29-31 God is in all of us. Through our love of one another it is evident.

Give me Strength

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed;
We are perplexed, but not in despair;
Persecuted, but not forsaken;
cast down, but not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 8,9

Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and look at all beings with the eyes of compassion.
