    How nice, I also like jazz, I really enjoy Michael Bublé. Anyway, as you say, we have to really explore the various rhythms of the music, that's good. I love music! So, we enjoyed the music that's good! =]

    Indeed, our last is beautiful. Lol! I've heard Mahalia Jackson and found divine too. Mary J. Blige to me has a unique talent that blends strength and beauty in his voice, it could be that she really will be a future Aretha Franklin. I listen to my music on Spotify, heard? Very good player and lightweight too. Brazilian singer who likes to hear more? You understand the best English medium scratched? kkkkk ...

    Our Aretha Franklin is amazing, love your songs, your voice and your talent. Your library is beautiful, with many renowned singers, is to be congratulated! The songs here in Brazil are beautiful and of great joy. I also hear very gospel, because I am also in evangelical and gospel singers are part of many talents. Thank you for sending me the invitation! Jesus is light and that He bless you loved. =]

All through eternity

Beauty unveils His exquisite form

In the solitude of nothingness

He holds a mirror to His face

And beholds His own beauty

He is the knower and the known

The seer and the seen

No eye but His own

Has ever looked upon this Universe


His every quality finds an expression

Eternity becomes the verdant field of Time and Space

Love, the Life-giving garden of this world

Every branch and leaf and fruit

Reveals an aspect of His perfection

The cypress give hint of His majesty

The rose gives tidings of His beauty


Whenever Beauty looks

Love is also there

Whenever Beauty shows a rosy cheek

Love lights Her fire from that flame

When Beauty dwell in the dark folds of night

Love comes and finds a heart - a Soul

Entangled in tresses

Beauty and Love are as Body and Soul

Beauty is the mine, Love is the diamond


They have been together

Since the beginning of time .....

Side by side, step by step

RUMI

Up and down the floor

And whisper in my ear,

When you talk like that,

I Have Learned So Much


I Have Learned So Much from God

That I can no longer call Myself

A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim,

A Buddhist, a Jew


The Truth has shared so much of Itself

With Me


That I can no longer call myself

A Man, a Woman, an Angel,

Or even a pure Soul


Love has

Befriended Hafiz so completely

It has turned to ash

And freed Me


Of every concept and image

My mind has ever known

Hafiz





After we fry the fat, we see what is left .....

*Yoruba Proverb *


Reading it, saying it, preaching or teaching it

Does not make it work

The only way to do it is to:


1). Begin within, take quiet time alone

2). Trust your head, follow your first thought

3). Don't be fooled by appearances

4). Plan prayerfully; prepare purposefully

5). Proceed positively; pursue persistently

6). Be willing to be wrong

7). Be flexible

8). Do the best you can where you are

9). Do the best you can with what you have

10). Be prepared

11). See the invisible, feel the intangible

12). Achieve the impossible

13). FOCUS + COURAGE + WILLINGNESS

TO WORK MIRACLES

14). Help somebody else

15). When in doubt - PRAY

See - you've got it now .....!

And .... I have it now also ....!








DESIRE - A LOVE POEM BY RUMI


A Lover asked his Beloved

"Do you love yourself more than you love me?"


The Beloved replied:

"I have died to myself and ....

I live for you

I've disappeared from myself and ....

My attributes ....

I am present only for You

I've forgotten all my learnings, but ....

From knowing you I've become a scholar

I've lost all my strength, but ....

From your power - I am able


I love myself ... I love you

I love you ... I love myself "


"I am your Lover."

"I will open the gate to your love

Come settle with me,

Let us be neighbors to the Stars"


"You have been hiding so long

Endlessly drifting in the Sea

Of my Love"


"Even so

You have always been connected

To me

Concealed, revealed

In the unknown

In the un - manifest"


"I am Life itself

You have been a prisoner

Of a little pond

I am the Ocean and

Its turbulent flood

Come merge with Me

Leave this world of ignorance"


"Be with Me

I will open the gate to your Love

I DESIRE YOU

More than food or drink"


"My Body, my Senses, my Mind

Hunger for your taste

I can sence your Presence

In my Soul

Although you belong

To all the World

I wait with Silent Passion

For one gesture

One glance

From You"


RUMI








THERE IS A CANDLE IN YOUR HEART - RUMI


There is a candle in your Heart

Ready to be kindled

There is a void in your Soul

Ready to be filled

You feel it, don't you?

You feel the Separation

From the BELOVED ....


Invite the BELOVED ....

To fill you up

Embrace the Fire

Remind those who tell you otherwise that ....

LOVE

Comes to you of its own accord

And the yearning for BELOVED LOVE and ...

PRESENCE cannot be learned in any school

RUMI








STOP ....!!!!


Most of us know exactly what it is that creates

the pain, confusion, stagnation, and disruption in our lives.

Whether it is a habit, behavior, relationship or fear,

we know.

Unfortunately, we seem powerless to stop whatever it is.

Sometimes we believe we don't have the discipline or

willpower to stop. The behavior becomes so habitual

we do it without thinking.

Other times we know exactly what it is and what we do,

but we simply keep doing it anyway. We are the only

ones responsible for what goes on in our lives.

We make excuses and blame others, but we are

responsible to and for ourselves.

When we find something or someone creating in

our Lives that which we do not want, we must muster

the courage and strength ....

TO STOP IT .....!!!

TO STOP ALL OF IT ....!!!

Today, I use my POWER TO STOP ....

What is no longer GOOD TO ME ....!!!

STOP IT RIGHT NOW ....!!!





Let Thought Become Your Beautiful Lover


Let thought become the beautiful Woman

Cultivate your mind and heart to that depth

That it can give you everything

A warm body can


Why just keep making love with God's child --Form

When the Friend Himself is standing

Before us

So open-armed?


My Dear ....

Let prayer become your beautiful Lover

And become Free ....

Become Free of this whole world

Like Hafiz

SCHOOL OF TRUTH


O fool, do something, so you won't just stand

there looking dumb

If you are not traveling and on the road,

How can you call yourself a Guide


In the School Of Truth, one sits at the feet

of the Master of Love

So listen, son, daughter, so that one day you

may be an old father, an old mother, too


All this eating and sleeping has made you ignorant

and fat

By denying yourself food and sleep, you may still

have a chance


Know this: If God should shine His lovelight on your Soul,

I'll promise you'll shine brighter than a dozen suns


And I say: wash the tarnished copper of your Life

from your hands

To be Love's Alchemist, you should be working with Gold


Don't sit there thinking go out and immerse yourself in

God's Sea

Having only one hair wet with water will not put Knowledge

in your Head


For those who see only God, their vision

Is Pure, and not a Doubt remains


Even if our world is turned upside down and blown over

by the wind

If you are doubtless, you won't loose a thing


O Hafiz, if it is Union with the Beloved that you seek,

Be the dust at the Wise One's door, and speak ....


Hafiz








Life of My Life


Life of my Life,

I shall ever try to keep my body pure,

Knowing that Your living touch is upon

All my limbs


I shall ever try to keep all untruths from

My thoughts,

Knowing that You are the truth which

Has kindled the light of reason in my mind


I shall ever try to drive all evils away from

My Soul and keep my love in flower,

Knowing that You have Your seat

In the inmost shrine of my Soul


It shall be my endeavor to reveal

You in my actions,

Knowing it is Your power that give me

Strength to act

Tagore

PERHAPS THEY SEE PARADISE








You Are Strong For Yourself

You see yourself as a natural leader. You believe in yourself no matter what.

You think other people see you as kind, gentle, and cooperative. You try to be helpful.

You want to see yourself as ingenious and clever. You'd like to be a quicker thinker.

You identify as a compassionate and accepting person. You pride yourself on being forgiving.

Who Are You to Yourself?


You Totally Respect Yourself

You have a very healthy sense of self-respect. In fact, you're downright amazing at self-care.
You don't have a selfish bone in your body, but you realize how imporant it is to make sure your needs are met.

You are good to yourself, and you take excellent care of your physical and mental health. You know when to say no.
By remembering who you are and what's important, you are able to shine. And putting yourself first helps you give to others.

Do You Respect Yourself?


You are fair, honest, and logical. You are a natural leader, and people respect you.
You never give up, and you will succeed... even if it takes you a hundred tries.
You are rational enough to see every part of a problem. You are great at giving other people advice.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.
You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

What's Your Name's Hidden Meaning?


You Are 85% Passionate, 15% Compassionate

You are a truly passionate person, and for you, love is a drug.
When you're in love, you lose all grip on reality. And it's a wild ride.
Although falling in love is vivid experience for you, it's sometimes *too* intense.

Is Your Love Style Passionate or Compassionate?

*LOVES-DESIRE - NAJELA'!*








You must do your own independent investigation of TRUTH ....

*Baha'i Teachings


Most of us believe only what we can see

Our eyes limit us in our perception and experience

Of REALITY

Yet, do we realize, whoever controls what we see or

Experience can, in fact, control our perceptions of REALITY

How then can we determine what is TRUTH and

What is not

We must Investigate, we must Probe

We must ask Questions

We must seek

We must know TRUTH intuitively, with our SOULS and

Mind in Harmony

The moment we Accept what is given to us as TRUTH

We loose our Conscious Reality

We are Living Through the eyes of someone else

How can we expect to find PEACE, HARMONY or SELF

If we Live through the perception of another

WE CAN'T

Whether Religion, Career, Personal Liberty, or

Life Itself - We Must Investigate, We Must Seek

We Must Probe - We Must Ask Questions

WE MUST BE IN CHARGE OF OUR OWN REALITY AND

KNOW OUR OWN TRUTH


I HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW








*BITTERSWEET*


In my hallucination

I saw my BELOVED'S flower garden

In my vertigo, in my dizziness

In my drunken haze

Whirling and dancing like a spinning wheel


I saw myself as the source of Existence

I was there in the Beginning

And I was the Spirit of Love

Now I am sober

There is onl the hangover

And the Memory of Love

And only the sorrow


I yearn for Happiness

I ask for Help

I want Mercy


And my Love says:


Look at Me and hear Me

Because I am here

Just for that


I am your Moon and your Moonlight too

I am your Flower Garden and

Your Water too

I have come all this way, eager for you

Without shoes or shawl


I want you to Laugh

To kill all your worries

To Love You

To Nourish You


Oh Sweet Bitterness

I will Soothe you and Heal you

I will Bring you Roses

I, too, have been covered with thorns


RUMI











From the beginning of my Life

I have been looking for your Face

But Today I have seen it


Today I have seen

The charm, the beauty,

The unfathomable grace

Of the Face

That I was looking for


Today I have found You

And those who laughed

And scorned me yesterday

Are sorry that they were not looking

As I did


I am bewildered by the Magnificence

Of your Beauty

And wish to see You

With a hundred eyes


My Heart has burned with Passion

And has searched Forever

For this wondrous Beauty

That I now Behold


I am ashamed

To call this Love - Human

And afraid of God

To call it Divine


Your fragrant breath

Like the morning breeze

Has come to the stillness of the Garden

You have breathed New Life into me

I have become Your Sunshine

And also your Shadow


My Soul is screaming in Ecstasy

Ever fiber of my being

Is in Love with You


Your Effulgence

Has lit a Fire in my Heart

For me

The Earth and Sky


My Arrow of Love

Has arrived at the target

I am in the House of Mercy

And my Heart

Is a Place of Prayer

CELEBRATE


Celebrate anything you want. Celebrate the

start of something. the end of something. If you're

still going after five years or ten years or twenty - five years,

Celebrate. When your Daughter begins the process of

womanhood, throw a quiet party to honor her passage

into womanhood. When you stop yours, throw a raucous

party in honor of your passage, too.

String paper chains and hand-deliver invitations and

bake a cale and break out the good stuff.

Celebrate! Dance and sing, give speeches, take pictures,

inger pant, play word games and cut out cookies

with sprinkles. Unfurl flags and spread torn quilts on the lawn

and squeeze your own lemonade and bake a pie.

Celebrate all the old holidays, and dream up a whole new

batch of your own. Celebrate early, celebrate late, and

Celebrate and celebrate often.

WORDS OF WISDOM FOR WOMEN








DEEPEN


Go deeper. Deepen your capacity to Love

by Loving more people more Deeply.

Deepen your understanding of your own psyche

by reading about the Goddesses

Diana, Hestia, Aphrodite, Sophia.

Deepen your knowledge of everything.

Rely on every tool available to you.

Deepen your ties to other women.

Understand them more deeply, treasure their Friendships

more deeply. Know them in a deeper way.

Deepen every relationship you have. Go to new levels of

caring, of honesty. Deepen your willingness to risk.

When you sink into the depths, go deeper into your own Darkness

and Embrace it more deeply. Dive deeper into your own consciousness

so you can mine the most precious jewels that lie deep within.

Deepen your inner wisdom as you age, and your outer

beauty deepens too.

I AM LOVE'S MUSICIAN PLAYING FOR JOY BY RUMI


I am Love's musician playing for Joy

I comb the bread of Happiness

And pull the moustache of Sorrow

When my core is touched by Music

Love's wine begins to Flow

In this Temple of Fire my Blood

Is melting the snow from my Body

It is Spring, it is time for Action,

It is time to throw away all False Pretences

Dragged and pulled in Love, I bear all the Pain

Caught in this Confusion, in this bitter Sweetness

I am captive of this Journey

It is the scent of Home that keeps me Going

The Hope of Union, the Face of my Beloved

I know our Fate is Separation, but until my Last Breath

I will search for my Sweet Love

I will seek My Home

LOVES-DESIRE - NAJELA'!








TALK TO YOURSELF


Some of the best conversations I have ever had

were the ones I had with Myself. I don't generally talk out loud

to myself unless I am a little upset about something and I just

need to hear the verbalization of the words. Usually I just have

a running commentary in my mind about things going on in my Life ....

What I'm worrying about or what I'm planning for my future.


I am not any crazier than anyone else, I imagine. It's just

interesting to listen to my thoughts come and go and change

with the new perceptions that arise in my Life. All of us sometimes

talk to ourselves with ongoing dialogs of emotions and interpretations

of what we really think and feel about things.


Life is amazing isn't it? We all are trying to deal with our

own situations and circumstances, and all the while our minds

are ricocheting back and forth with so many wonderful, heartfelt

expressions. We are with ourselves twenty-four hours a day, so it

is important to really pay attention to what our minds are focused on

and what makes us feel good about ourselves. And just because you

are talking to yourself doesn't mean you have to be overly strict and

unreasonable. You'll end up getting more out of yourself in the future

when your mind knows you are willing to Listen.

[Life isn't easy for anyone - so if talking to yourself helps

go ahead and do it. Just remember, when giving advice

and counsel to yourself - be Honest, Fair, and Understanding.]

TRUMPET PLAYER BY LANGSTON HUGHES


THE NEGRO

With the trumpet at his lips

Has dark moons of weariness

Beneath his eyes

Where the smoldering memory

Of slave ships

Blazed to the crack of whips

About his thighs


THE NEGRO

With the trumpet at his lips

Has a head of vibrant hair

Tamed down,

Patent-leathered now

Until it gleams

Like jet ----

Were jet a crown


THE MUSIC

From the trumpet at his lips

IS HONEY

Mixed with LIQUID FIRE

The rhythm

From the trumpet at his lips

IS ECSTASY

Distilled from old DESIRE ----


DESIRE

That is longing for the moon

Where the moonlight's but a spotlight

In his eyes,

DESIRE

That is longing for the sea

Where the sea's a bar-glass

Sucker size


THE NEGRO

With the trumpet at his lips

Whose jacket

Has a fine one-button roll,

Does not know

Upon what riff the music slips

It's hypodermic needle

TO HIS SOUL ----


But softly

As the tune comes from his throat

weathered the Storms ......








A BRAVE AND STARTLING TRUTH

BY MAYA ANGELOU


We, unaccustomed to courage exiles from delight

Lived coiled in shells of lonelines

Until Love leaves its high holy temple

And comes into our sight

To liberate us into Life


If we are bold, Love strikes away the chains of fear

From our Souls


Love costs all we are and will ever be

Yet it is only Love which sets us free

A Brave and Startling Truth


It is possible and imperative that we discover

A Brave and Starling Truth


When we come to it

We, this people, on this wayward, floating body

Created on this Earth, of this Earth

Have the power to fashion for this Earth

A climate where every Man and every Woman

Can live Freely without sanctimonious piety

And without crippling Fear


When we come to it

We must confess that we are the possible

We are the miraculous, the true Wonders of this World

That is When, and only When

We come to it.

LET US BEGIN THE JOURNEY


Wake up Lovers,

It is time to start the Journey

We have seen enough of this World,

It is time to see Another


These two gardens may be Beautiful

but

Let us pass beyond them and go to the Gardener


Let us Kiss the ground and flow like a River

Towards the Ocean


Let us go from the Valley of Tears to the Wedding Feast

Let us bring the Color of Blossoms to our pale faces


Our hearts shiver like autumn leaves about to fall

In this world of dust there is no avoiding pain or feeling exiled


Let us become like Beautifully colored Birds

And

Fly to the Sweet Land Of Paradise


Everything is painted with the brush of The Invisible One

Let us follow the hidden signs and find the Painter


It is best to travel with Companions

On this perilous journey only Love can lead the way


We are like rain splashing on a roof

Let us find our way down the spout


We are like an arched bow with the arrow in place

Let us become straight and release

The arrow towards the target


We have stayed at home scarred like mice

Let us find our courage and join the Lions


Let our Souls turn into a Mirror

Longing to reflect the Essence Of Beauty


Let us begin The Journey Home

TENDING THE CREATIVE FIRES


My Creativity is Wise, Wonderful, and Fun

I make time to express my Creativity


Of all the qualities in our being the one that is

most Godlike is Creativity. Creativity is Wisdom in Action ----

a powerful, intangible, and deeply spiritual birthright.


We are born from the Creator to Create, and therefore,

are fired by a primal desire to express our unique and

individual creativity. Our universe is continually creating

itself, and our bodies are in a constant state of re-creation.

As an example: skin, scrapped, seared, or sliced immediately

begins to create new skin. We take it for granted. Yet, such

re-creation is an unconscious, instinctual miracle.


Consciously, our compulsion to create is no less compelling.

Although our creative fires may have been dampened from

our life circumstances up to this point, they are waiting,

smoldering for us to rebuild them. Because creativity and

wisdom are fraternal twins, tending our creative fires is a

wonderful way to ignite and awaken to our wisdom.

"Why should we all use our creative powers .....?"

asks writer, Brenda Ueland, "Because there is nothing

that makes people so generous, joyful, lively, bold, and

compassionate, so indifferent to fighting and the

accumulations of objects and money."

Sounds Godlike to me.


With quiet excitement, close your eyes and beg

into deepen your breath. As you inhale say,

"I am," and as you exhale say, "Creative,"

I am .... Creative. I am .... Creative. Relaxing

softly into the center of your being, visualize

yourself tending a beautiful, vibrant, but in-control

fire. Enjoy it in whatever ways feel good to you.

This is your Creative Fire. What sparks need fanning?

What new logs are yearning to be added? What passionate

part of this fire needs to express itself more freely in order

to feed your Soul?


We are created in God's image. Would that not mean

that one of our most natural gifts is to express

Creativity? Give yourself the gift of kindling the flames

of your Creativity, the light of which will illuminate

your Wisdom.

"Nothing can dim the Light which shines from within ......."

Maya Angelou


Each of us brings to the world unique talents, gifts, and abilities.

Even if we don't know what it is or value what we do,

Someone, somewhere will benefit from your presence.

No one can do what you do exactly the way you do it.

It is this uniqueness that makes you valuable to the world.

We are each as unique and valuable as the other.

It was designed that way. A Gift from God.

Gifts are not given on the basis of race or gender.

Gifts are not given on the basis of whether you are good

Or bad .......

Gifts are not given on the basis of whether you are fat

Or skinny ........

Gifts are not given on the basis of whether you are rich

Or poor .......

Gifts are not given on the basis of whether you are sexual

Or not sexual

Or your sexual orientation - wow - hasn't sex become complicated

We need a damn orientation now ......

Truthfully Gifts come in all variety of people or individuals .......

As many as are on the planet and will live on the planet ......

The Gift giver has to be very creative and giving and ........

No one interpretation of the Gift giver can express all ......

Gifts given .......

When you do what you do, exactly the way you do it

You are sharing God's gifts, given you for the good of the world

And if you are one who does not believe in God or .......

You do not know .......

Don't sweat it my Brother or Sister - we all walk our own .....

Journey in Life - you were given a Gift also .......

Just display or use your Gift - forget the argument ......

Everyone's expression is needed in this world .......


"I have something valuable to give the world."

Iyanla Vanzant

LOVES-DESIRE - NAJELA'!





I seemed to have Loved you in numberless forms, numberless times .....

In Life after Life, in age after age, Forever ......

My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs

That you take as a Gift, wear around your neck in your many forms

In Life after Life, in age after age, Forever .....


Whenever I hear old chronicles of Love, its age old pain

It's ancient tale of being apart or together

As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge

Clad in the light of a pole-star, piercing the darkness of time

You become an image of what is remembered Forever .....


You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount

At the heart of Time, Love of one for another

We have played along side millions of Lovers ......

Shared in the same shy sweetness of meeting

The distressful tears of Farewell .....

Old Love but in shapes that renew and renew Forever ......

By Tagore

LOVES-DESIRE - NAJELA'!





UNDERSTANDING DIVINE MIND


You Are Not Going to Believe This ......


We are all connected to the one Mind, one Life, one Power ......

One Spirit - which is God. God created us all. God remains

connected to us all. God knows everything there is to know

about you and everybody else. When we really understand

and embrace this concept, we will realize there is no need to

run around telling people what somebody else has done. God

already knows and only She/He has the power to heal and

correct.


Usually when we criticize, judge, or complain to people

about other people, they are in no position to help us. In

most cases 80% of the people have their own people to

complain about, and the other 20% don't care. Our problems

with each other can be solved as soon as we give up the idea

of how they "should' behave and what they "should" do.

God is the only one who knows for sure who we are and our

individual level of development. If we can remember the

connection and recognize the need for healing, it becomes

easy not to be angry or upset with people. They are minding

their own life business. You are free to mind yours.


The One Mind, One Life, One Power, One Spirit ......

Minds Us All ........

TOO MANY NAMES


Mondays are meshed with Tuesdays

And .... the week with the whole year

Time cannot be cut

With your weary scissors

And .... all the names of the day

Are washed out by the waters of night


No one can claim the name of Pedro

Nobody is Rosa or Maria

All of us are dust or sand

All of us are rain under rain

They have spoken to me of Venezulas,

Of Chiles and Paraquays

I have no idea what they are saying

I know only the skin of the Earth

And I know it is without a Name


When I lived amongst the roots

They pleased me more than flowers did

And when I spoke to a Stone

It rang like a Bell


It is so long, the Spring

Which goes on all Winter

Time lost its Shoes

A year is Four Centuries


When I sleep every Night

What am I called or not called?

And when I wake, who am I?

If I was not while I slept?


This means to say that scarcely

Have we landed into Life

Than we come as if New-Born;

Let us not fill our mouths

With so many faltering Names,

With so many sad formalities,

With so many pompous letters,

With so much yours and mine,

With so much of signing of papers .......


I have a mind to confuse things

Unite them, bring them to Birth,

Mix them up, undress them,

Until the Light of the World

Has the oneness of the Ocean,

A generous, vast Wholeness,

A crepitant Fragrance ........

By - Pablo Neruda

LOVES-DESIRE - NAJELA'!








Beloved, you are my salvation

my only companion, my retreat and guide,

but you are also the one who breaks my heart.

You are my Noah, my Soul

the conguered and the conqueror.

Open my heart and sweep it clean

from all my secrets.

You are Grace enveloped in light,

kindness and wrath,

a drop and the vast ocean

how long will you torment me?

My Sun, my flicker of hope,

do not let me die of thirst

for you are the water and the cup

you are my pain and my cure.

Release me from the web of the body

and keep my heart by your side.

Song Of The Soul - By KAHLIL GIBRAN


In the depth of my Soul there is

A wordless song----a song that lives

In the seed of my heart.

It refuses to melt with ink on

Parchment; it engulfs my Affection

In a transparent cloak and flows,

But not upon my lips.


How can I sigh it? I fear it may

Mingle with earthly ether;

To whom shall I sing it? It dwells

In the house of my Soul, in fear of

Harsh ears.


When I look into my inner Eyes

I see the shadow of its shadow;

When I touch my Fingertips

I feel its vibrations.

The deeds of my hands heed its

Presence as a lake must reflect

The glittering stars; my Tears

Reveal it, as bright drops of dew

Reveal the secret of the a withering rose.


It is a song composed of contemplation,

And published by silence,

And shunned by clamor,

And folded by truth,

And repeated by dreams,

And understood by love,

And hidden by awakening,

And sung by the Soul.


It is the Song of Love;

What Cain or Esau could sing it?

It is moire fragrant than jasmine;

What voice could enslave it?


It is heartbound, as a virgin's secret;

What strings could quiver it?

Who dares unite the roar of the sea

And the singing of the nightingale?

Who dares compare the shrieking tempest

To the sign of an infant?

Who dares speak aloud the words

Intended for the Soul to speak?

What Human dares sing in voice

The Song of God?

GO AFTER OUR DREAMS .......


We live in a world that sometimes

lacks understanding and forgiveness.

There are times when nothing seems

to make sense, and times when

it never will.

Sometimes the most we can hope for

is an inner patience ........ knowing that

the winds of change will eventually send a

fresh new breeze

into our lives.

Sometimes the most we can hope for

is someone who understancs ......

who touches us and tells us ------

without need for touching or words -----

that it will be okay,

and we know that it will be

because they are here for us.


And sometimes we just need to remember,

no matter what the world sends our way,

that it is so important to go after

our dreams, and to reach for our goals .......

never forgetting that,

with every smile and effort and hope,

we'll get a little closer

........ every day.

OPENING THE HEART - MOTHER TERESA


One day, we picked up a Man off the street who

looked like a fairly well-to-do person. He was

completely drunk. He couldn't even stand up because

he was so drunk!

We took him to our home. The Sisters treated him

with Love, Care, and Kindness.

After a fortnight, he told the Sisters, "Sisters, my

heart is open. Through you I have come to realize that

God loves me. I've felt His tender love for me. I want

to go home." And we helped him get ready to go

home.

After a mouth, he came back to our home and

gave the Sister his first paycheck. He told the Sisters,

"Do to others what you have done to me." And he

walked away a different person.

Love had brought him back to his family, to his

children's tenderness, to is wife's understanding love.

Let us ask Our Lady to teach us how to Love and

how to have the Courage to share.

THE PROPHET ON PLEASURE - KAHLIL GIBRAN


Then a hermit, who visited the city once

a year, came forth and said, Speak to us of

PLEASURE.


And he answered, saying:

PLEASURE is a freedom - song,

But it is not FREEDOM.

It is the blossoming of your DESIRES,

But it is not their FRUIT.

It is a depth calling unto a height,

But it is not the deep nor the high.

It is the caged taking wing,

But it is not space encompassed.

Ay, in very TRUTH, PLEASURE IS A FREEDOM - SONG.

And I fain would have you sing it with

fullness of heart; yet I would not have you

loose your SOULS in the singing.


Some of your youth seek PLEASURE as if it

were ALL, and they are judged and rebuked.

I would not judge nor rebuke them. I would

have them seek.

For they shall find PLEASURE, but not her

ALONE;

Seven are her sisters, and the least of them

is more BEAUTIFUL THAN PLEASURE.

Have you not heard of the Man who was

digging in the Earth for roots and found a

treasure?


And some of your elders remember

PLEASURES with regret like wrongs

committed in drunkenness.

But regret is the beclouding of the mind

and not its chastisement.

They should remember their PLEASURE with

GRATITUDE, as they would the harvest of a Summer.

Yet if it confronts them to regret, let them be confronted.


And there are among you those who are neither young

to seek nor old to remember;

And their fear of seeking and remembering they shun

all PLEASURES, lest they neglect the SPIRIT or offend

against it.

But even in their foregoing is their PLEASURE.

And thus they too find a TREASURE though

they dig for roots with quivering hands.

But tell me, who is he that can offend the SPIRIT?

Shall the nightingale offend the stillness of the night,

or the firefly the stars?

And shall your flame or smoke burden the wind?

Think you the SPIRIT is a still pool which you can

trouble with a staff?


Oftentimes in denying yourself PLEASURE

you do but store the DESIRE in the reccesses

of YOUR BEING.

Who knows but that which seems omitted today,

waits for tomorrow?

Even your BODY knows its heritage and its rightful

need and will not be deceived.

And your BODY is the HARP OF YOUR SOUL,

And it is yours to bring forth sweet music from it

or confused sounds.


And now you ask in your SOUL, "How shall we distinguish that which is good in

PLEASURE from that which is not good?

Go to your fields and your gardens, and

you shall learn that it is the PLEASURE of

the bee to gather honey of the flower,

But it is also the PLEASURE of the flower

to yield its honey to the bee.

For to the bee a flower is a fountain of LIFE,

And to the flower a bee is a messenger of LOVE,

And to BOTH, bee and flower, the giving

and the receiving of PLEASURE is a NEED and

an ECSTASY.


People of Orphalese, be in your PLEASURES ..........

like the flowers and the bees.

THE PROPHET - KAHLIL GIBRAN

PLEASURES - SO VERY BEAUTIFUL .......

PLEASURES - SO VERY NECESSARY FOR LIFE ......

PLEASURES - SO VERY DESIRED FOR LOVE ........

THE SWEET TASTE OF LOVE BY DAVID FARRAR


The sweet taste of Love

Still lingers in my Mind

A succulent tasty morsel

A treasure worth its find


A wet and juicy fruit

That fills my mouth with Joy

Like candy to a baby

An edible sexy toy


With nectar sweet as Honey

A syrup of flowng silk

Like a bubbly kind of lava

As smooth as warm clear milk


It breathes with scented oils

Like a flower in the mist

And blossoms when caressed

By the feel of a Lover's Kiss


A dessert at its very best

When embraced with lots of Love

I know I'll never get enough

Of this treat I'm thinking of ....

LOVES-DESIRE - NAJELA'!











A is for ACCEPT ........

Recognize what you can change and what you can't.

In every moment, ACCEPT that everything is as it should be.

ACCEPT that your body is round and fat and glorious.

Just LOVE it. ACCEPT that you don't do things that everyone

else does. Just EMBRACE it. ACCEPT that sometimes your

belly hurts, sometimes you don't have enough money to pay

the light bill, sometimes LIFE is hard. Just cry and move

through it. ACCEPT that you can't do it all ---- and who

would want to, anyway? ACCEPT a kind word. Don't

apologize. ACCEPT A GIFT ---- no matter how BIG.,

how small. Say THANK YOU without embarrassment.

ACCEPT THAT LIFE ISN'T ALWAYS FAIR ..........

And find the WONDER in that, too. Don't ACCEPT

things that aren't YOURS, like MISDIRECTED SHAME

and BLAME. Like credit for someone else's

accomplishments. Like DISRESPECT. ACCEPT

EVERYTHING YOU ARE ........

and ......

NOTHING YOU ARE NOT .......

Do not keep on babbling as a Child

That does not know their FATHER

THE PROPHET - KAHLIL GIBRAN

Then a Priestess said, Speak to us of

PRAYER.

And he answered, saying:

You PRAY in your distress and in your need;

would that you might pray also in the fullness

of your joy and in your days of abundance.


For what is PRAYER but the expansion of

yourself into the living ether?

And if it is for your comfort to pour

your darkness into space, it is also for your

delight to pour forth the drawing of your SOUL.

And if you cannot but weep when your

SOUL summons you to PRAYER, she should spur

you again and yet again, though weeping,

until you shall come laughing.

When you PRAY you rise to meet in the

air those who are PRAYING at that very hour,

and whom save in PRAYER you may not

meet.

Therefore let your visit to that temple invisible

be for naught but ecstasy and sweet communion.

For if you should enter the temple for no other

purpose than asking you shall not receive:

And if you should enter into it to humble

yourself you shall not be lifted:

Or even if you should enter into it to

beg for the good of others you shall not be

heard.

It is enough that you enter the temple invisible.


I cannot teach you how to PRAY in words.

God listens not to your words save when

He Himself utters them through your lips.

And I cannot teach you the PRAYER OF THE SEAS

and THE FORESTS and THE MOUNTAINS.

But you who are born of the mountains

and the forests and the seas can find their

PRAYER IN YOUR SOUL,

And if you but listen in the stillness of the night

you shall hear them saying in silence,

"Our God, who are our winged self, it

is Thy will in us that willeth.

It is Thy desire in us that desireth.

It is Thy urge in us that would turn our

nights, which are Thine, into days which are

Thine also.

We cannot ask thee for aught, for Thou

knowest our needs before they are born in us:

Thou are our need; and in giving us more

of Thyself - Thou givest us all."

TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO TREAT YOU ....


If you tolerate bad behavior,

You are teaching that person or persons how to treat you.


Pick your crown of worthiness and respect

And wear it every day.


You are a Child of God the Creator

Worthy in His / Her sight.


Whether it is a personal or professional

Relationship, contract, or agreement,

Teach others how to Honor and Respect you.


Once you compromise, live with fear, and

Lower your standards,

You are welcoming mediocrity, abuse, and problems

In your Life.


If someone hurts you once,

Shame on them.


If someone hurts you twice,

Shame on you.

B is for BLISS


BLISS OUT.

Bliss out on joy, bliss out on pleasure,

bliss out on Love. When you think you've

reached the ceiling of your bliss, ride the bliss train

right on through. Bliss out on nature. Bliss out on the

smell of pine, the feel of moss on your cheek, the awesome,

sweet tartness of wild mountain cherries. Sit in a circle and drum

and rattle and dance your way into bliss. Bliss out in the presence

of anything newborn. Bliss out beneath a golden sun in a cloudless

sky, beneath a shimmering full moon, below a never-ending canopy

of starlight. Sit at the fire's edge and bliss out. Bliss out on

watermelon and on handmade tortillas and fresh-from - the -garden

salsa and on strawberries dipped in chocolate. Call up the

BLISS GODDESS, and when she walks in, bliss on out.

What color is your soul painted?

My Results:





Red

Your soul is painted the color red, which embodies the characteristics of love, strength, physical energy, sex, passion, courage, protection, excitement, speed, leadership, power, danger, and respect. Red is the color of the element Fire, and is associated with blood, life and death, birth, volcanoes, and intense emotions.





You Are Red



You are a natural leader and a fast thinker. You enjoy being in charge.

You live for taking risks, and you usually end up at the head of the pack.

You can be impatient with others, especially if they waffle when making decisions.

You are logical and rational. You get annoyed by emotional appeals and irrelevant questions.

Please no emotional appeals and no more irrelevant questions - they all are - if you don't know;

Guess What - You're not suppose to know ....

What Color Is Your Personality?













Your Taste in Music Says You're Dynamic



Your musical tastes are energetic and rhythmic.
You are full of energy and can be quite talkative.

You are forward thinking and open minded.
You despise conservatism of any sort.

You are intense, detail oriented, and motivated.
You are an ambitious person, though your ambition is anything but conventional.

What Does Your Taste in Music Say About You?






















LAUGHTER BY HAFIZ


What is laughter? What is laughter?

It is God waking up! O, it is God waking up!

It is the Sun poking its sweet head out

From behind a Cloud

You have been carrying too long,

Veiling your eyes and heart.


It is Light breaking ground for a great Structure

That is your real body - called Truth!


It is Happiness applauding itself and taking flight

To embrace Everyone and Everything in this World.


Laughter is the polestar

Held in the sky by our Beloved,

Who eternally says,


"Yes, dear ones, come this way,

Come this way towards Me and Love!


Come with your tender mouths moving

And your beautiful tongues conducting songs

And with your movements - your magic movements

Of hands and feet and glands and cells - Dancing!


Know that to God's Eye,

All movement is a Wondrous Language,

And Music - such exquisite, wild Music!"


O what is laughter, Hafiz?

What is this precious love and laughter

Budding in our Hearts - our Souls?


It is the Glorious Sound

Of a Soul waking up!

He asked for confirmation, saying,

"Are these wondrous dreams true?"


I replied, "How may goats do you have?"

And I spoke again saying,

"Yes brother - how many do you have?"


"Well Hafiz, I have sixty - two!"


"And how many wives?"

Again, he looked surprised, then said,

"Four!"


"How many rose bushes are in your garden,

How many children,

Are your parents still alive,

Do you feed the birds in the Winter?"


Then I said,

"You asked me if I thought your visions were true,

C is for CAUSE


CAUSE some kind of stir! Cause a ruckus!

When you enter, cause excitement to ripple

through the room. When you're feeling mischievous,

cause some confusion. Cause the entire group to burst into

laughter; an instant later, cause them all to burst into tears.

Pay special attention to anything or anyone who causes your

heart to flutter. Pick your causes carefully, then cause an

uproar. Say just enough to cause them to reconsider. Cause

them to wonder if they really heard what they think they heard.

Learn the law of cause and effect and learn that it can be

broken. Cause a confrontation. When they ask you why you did,

meet their gaze and say BECAUSE ............

Remember, the entrance door to the Sancturary is inside You.


In Truth, Everything and Everyone

Is a shadow of the Beloved,

And Our seeking, is the Beloved's seeking

And Our words are the Beloved's words ....

We search for the Beloved here and there,

While looking right at the Beloved.

Sitting by the Beloved's side, we ask:

'O Beloved, where is the Beloved?'


God turns you from one feeling to another

And teaches you by means of opposites,

So that you will have two wings to fly - not one.


We rarely hear the inward music,

But we're all dancing to it nevertheless.

RUMI - SUFISM


Ephesians 1 : 3 - 10


Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Who has blessed us in the heavenly realms

With every Spiritual Blessing in Christ.

For He chose us in Him before

The Creation of the World to be blameless

And holy in His sight. In Love He predestined us

To be adopted as children through Jesus Christ,

In accordance with His pleasure and will - to the

Praise of His glorious grace, which He has freely

Given us, in the One He loves. In Him we have

Redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins,

In accordance with the riches of God's grace that he

Lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.

And He made known to us the Mystery of His will

According to His good pleasure, which He purposed

In Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have

Reached their fulfillment - to bring all things in Heaven

And on Earth together under one head,

Even Christ.

I am a Believe in Jesus Christ!

WHERE EVERYTHING IS MUSIC - RUMI


We've come to this place where everything is Music;

Everything is music, let it play.


Why do you stay in jail when the door is open?

Let the beauty that you love, be what you do.


Stop talking now, open up the window

The one right there in the middle of your Soul

Give us your hands, sit down in this circle

You know you got no need to keep yourself apart


Today you wake up sad and empty, do't go back to sleep.

There's a million ways to kneel and kiss the ground.


Don't worry now, about saving all these songs,

There's so many more just waiting to be found.

And if all these instruments should disappear

We will still hear something coming up from way down in the ground

We will still hear something flowing from the beautiful heavens

We wlll still hear something from the air blowing through the trees

We will hear something the motion of the oceans and the wave

We will hear something from floating of the clouds

We will hear something from the warmth of the sun

We will hear something by the light of the moon

We will hear something by the twinkling of the stars


Because we've come to this place where ....

Everything is Music

EVERYTHING IS MUSIC ....

Let it play.

THE SOUL OF RUMI


THREE TRAVELERS TELL THEIR DREAMS


Three devout Men of different religions fall in together

by chance traveling. They stop at a caravanseri where

the Host brings as a Gift a sweet dessert,

some taste of God's nearness.


This is how people out in serve strangers.

The Jew and the Christian are full,

but the Muslim has been fasting all day.

The two say, "Let's save it for tomorrow."

The one, "No, Let's save self-denial for tomorrow!"

"You want it all for yourself!"

"Divide it into three parts, and each can do as he wants."

"Ah, but Muhammad said not to share."

"That was about dividing yourself between sensuality

and soul. You must belong, to one or the other."

But finally, for some reason, he gives in,

"I'll do it your way."

They refrain from tasting.

They sleep, and then wake and dress themselves

to begin moring devotions.


Christians, Jews, Muslims, Shamans, Zoroastrian,

stone, ground, mountain, river

each has a secret way of being with the Mystery;

unique and not to be judged.

This subject never ends!


Three friends in a grand morning mood.

"Let us tell what dreams we had last night;

whoever has had the deepest dream

gets the halvah."


Agreed!


The Jewish man begins the wanderings of his Soul.

"Moses met me on the road;

I followed him to Sinai: an opening door, light within light.

Mt. Sinai and Moses and I merged in an exploding splender,

the Unity of Prophets."


This was a true dream.


Many Jews have such. Then the Christian sighs,

"Christ took me in His Arms to the Fourth Heaven,

a pure vast region .... I cannot say ...." His is also deep.

The Muslim, "Muhammad came and told me where

you two had gone. 'You wretch,' he said,

you've been left behind! You may as well get up

and eat something." "No!" laughed the Christian and the Jew.

"How could I disobey such Glory? Would you not do as Moses

and Jesus suggest?" "You're right," they say.

Yours is the truest dream, but it had immediate effect

in your wakeing Life."


What matters is how ....

Quickly ....

You do ....

What your Soul directs!

PSALM 52


Why do you brag of evil, 'Big Man / Big Woman'?

God's mercy carries the day:

You scheme catastrophe;

Your tongue cuts razor - sharp,

Aritisan in lies.

You love evil more than good,

You call black whitel.

You love malicious gossip,

You foul - mouth.


God will tear you limb from limb,

Sweep you up and throw you out,

Pull you up by the roots

From the land of life.


Good people will watch and worship.

They'll laugh in relief:

"'Big Man / Big Woman' bet on the wrong horse,

Trusted in big money,

Made their living from catastrophe."


And I'm an olive tree,

Growing green in God's house.

I trusted in the generous mercy

Of God then and now.


I thank you always

That you went into action.

And I'll stay right here,

Your good name my hope,

In company with your faithful friends.

TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL BY MAYA ANGELOU


We unaccustomed to courage

Exiles from delight

Live coiled in shells of lonelines

Until love leaves it's hightly holy temple

And comes into our sight

To liberate us into life.


Love arrives

And in it's train come ecstasies

Old memories of pleasure

Ancient histories of pain.

Yet if we are bold,

Love strikes away the chains of fear

From our souls.


We are weaned from our timidity

In the flush of love's light

We dare be brave

And suddenly we see

That love costs all we are

And will ever be.

Yet it is only love ....

Which sets us free.


Thank you so much Queen Mother

For what your words have taught me.

How all that I have read and know of you,

Is already within me ..........

Know each other, when they meet

It's what keeps My Fire Raging.

We balance Majesty and Grace.

BALLARD OF THE FORTUNE TELLER BY LANGSTON HUGHES


Madam could look into your hand

Never seen you before

And tell you more than

You'd want to know


She could tell you about Love

And money, and such

And she wouldn't

Charge you much


A fellow came one day

Madam took him in

She treated him like

He was her kin


Gave him money to gamble

She gave him bread

And let him sleep in her

Walnut bed


Friends tried to tell her

Dave meant her no good

Look like she could've have knowed it

If only she would


He mistreated her terrible

Beat her up bad

Then went off and left her

Stole all she had


She tried to find out

What road he took

There wasn't a trace

No way she looked


That woman who could foresee

What your Future meant

Couldn't tell to save her

Where Dave went

ALL THROUGH ETERNITY BY RUMI


All through Eternity

Beauty unveils His exquisite form

In the solitude of nothingness

He holds a mirror to His Face

And beholds His own Beauty

He is the Knower and the Known

The Seer and The Seen

No eye but His own

Has ever looked upon this Universe


His every quality finds an expression

Eternity becomes the verdant field ot Time and Space

Love, the Life-Giving garden of this World

Every branch and leaf and fruit

Reveals an aspect of His Perfection

The cypress give hint of His Majesty

The rose gives tidings of His Beauty


Whenever Beauty looks

Love is also there

Whenever Beauty shows a rosy cheek

Love lights Her Fire from that flame

When Beauty dwells in the dark folds of night

Love comes and finds a Heart

Entangled in tresses

Beauty and Love are as Body and Soul

Beauty is the mine - Love is the diamond


They have been together

Since the beginning of Time

Side by Side - Step by Step

ANYWAY" BY MOTHER TERESA


People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self - centered;

Forgive them anyway ....


If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish,

ulterior motives;

Be kind anyway ....


If you are successful, you will win some false friends,

And some true enemies;

Succeed anyway ....


If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;

Be honest and frank anyway ....


What you spend years building,

Someone can destroy overnight;

Build anyway ....


If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;

Be happy anyway ....


The good you do today, people will often be forgot tomorrow;

Do good anyway ....


Give the World the best you have,

And it may never be enough;

Give the World the best you've got anyway ....


You see, in the final analysis,

It is between you and your God;

It was never between you and them anyway ....

Mother Teresa

RUMI - HIDDEN MUSIC


Shams Has Come!

My Sun and Moon, my sight and hearing

That Beauty suddenly appeared by my side.

The One who was always in my thoughts

For whom I've searched so long

Has come to me with open arms

Laying flowers on my path.


My deepest wish has been granted.

What can I fear when my shield

My water of life has come?


Today is a day of GLORY!

Today I am like Solomon

With the ring of abundance on my finger

And the divine crown on my head.

I can fly for he has given me wings

I can roar like a lion, I can rise like dawn.

No more verses

For I am taken to a place from where

The world seems so small

RUMI

To be who you are and become what you are capable of ....

Is the only Goal worth Living ...

Alvin Alley


Life is not hopping from one mountaintop to another because

there is a Valley between. At times, the Valley is a job you hate

but Need to Feed the Family.

The Valley may be Failing or Toxic relationships. The Valley could be a Child

who goes Astray or a Friend who Betrays you. The Valley could be an Illness

or a Death of a Loved One. The Valley is Dark, Bleak, Ugly and Frightening.

But there is Value in the Valley. When you are in a Valley, you begin to muster

the Strength and Power buried deep within you. In the Valley you begin to Think.

Pray, and Tap into your incredibly Divine Self . The Valley gives you time to Rest,

to Heal, to rejuvenate Your Being. It is an Opportunity to Look Up, to See and

Remember those Powerful Mountain Climbers who Made it before You;

Your Grandmother, Your Hero, even Yourself .

You have been in the Valley before. Remember what you did,

How You got up got up and out.

Let the Thoughts and Memories of that Success be the Rope

You use to pull yourself up .....


I AM taking time to learn the to Learn the Value of the Valley

GOODBYE CHRIST BY LANGSTON HUGHES


Listen - CHRIST

You did alright in your day; I reckon

But that day is gone now

They ghosted you up a swell story, too

Called it BIBLE

But it's DEAD NOW

The Popes and the Preachers've

Made too much money from it

They've sold you to too many


Kings, General, Robbers, and Killers

Even to the Tzar and the Cossacks

Even the Rockefeller's Church

Even to THE SATURDAY EVENING POST

You ain't no good no more

They've pawned you

Till you've done wore out


Goodbye

CHRIST JESUS LORD GOD JEHOVA

Beat it on away from here now

Make way for a new guy with no religion at all

A real guy named

Marx Communist Lenin Peasant Stalin Worker ME


I said, ME

Go ahead on now

You're getting in the way of things, LORD

And please take Saint Ghandi with you when you go

And Saint Pius

And Saint Aimee McPherson

And big black Saint Becton

Of the Consecrated Dime

And step on the gas, CHRIST

Move


Don't be so slow about movin

The World is mine from now on

And nobody's gonna sell ME

To a King or a General

Or a Millionaire

Langston Hughes
