To Listen to a recording of this poem with music

A new chapter begins
marked by God’s finger
across the innocent page
written with Life’s language
from the day and the dark
of religion and the holy.
As ripples on a still pool
expand in silver Light,
so Love expands to embrace all —
for Love is the water,
and the stone in the water
and the expanding circle of waves.

For Love is the water,
and the stone in the water
and the expanding circle of waves…

*My most optimistic core trusts that Love is being discovered as the creative, healing, inspiring, illuminating, reconnecting power that it truly is and will become the basis for new social structures, including patterns of trade, architecture, self government, and even transformed religious beliefs.

We have tried every other political/economic system: why not try the energy of Love illuminating and freeing human beings? The problem is it takes a personal passionate commitment to freedom and the highest good of all which runs contrary to our traumatized, pain creating natures which connect us to the more destructive dimensions of the Spiritus Mundi. So… it may take a lot of suffering and many crises to birth a wide spread awakening. But, in the meanwhile, one soul at a time deciding that this Love thing just makes one heaven of a lot of sense, keeps fanning the flames of Love that are quietly illuminating people all over the world.

Oh, the recording has some amazing effects created by my friend Kailash Kokopelli. He swings plastic tubes around at different speeds and gets the most celestial sounds.*

    Beautiful your voice..the musical background, celestial.
    I know your words..and just think that Love is there,
    bringing new souls to Life.
    Human love…our prevailing substance cannot do without it.
    Even love has its shadow…and there is not a fight between Love
    and Hate…God or Evil..just un uncomprehended polarity of true Wisdom.
    Rosa (precious….)

  • Thanks so much, Rosa. Love is bringing us to Life for sure. :)
