Lessons of love

Love sometimes wants to do us a great favor:

hold us upside down

and

shake all the nonsense out.

Two kinds of Intelligence

There are two kinds of intelligence:

one acquired,
as a child in school memorizes facts and concepts
from books and from what the teacher says,
collecting information from the traditional sciences
as well as from the new sciences.

With such intelligence you rise in the world.
You get ranked ahead or behind others
in regard to your competence in retaining
information.

You stroll with this intelligence
in and out of fields of knowledge, getting always more
marks on your preserving tablets.

There is another kind of tablet, one
already completed and preserved inside you.


A spring overflowing its spring box . A freshness
in the center of the chest. This other intelligence
does not turn yellow or stagnate.

It’s fluid,
and it doesn’t move from outside to inside
through conduits of plumbing-learning.

This second knowing is a fountainhead
from within you, moving out.

Dance of Existence

I am filled with You.

This dance is the joy of Existence.

ram footnote :

Love is your inner wealth ,

seed of which you bring in your closed hands

to plant in this world

to make it a tree of happiness.

New Challenge

A new challenge everyday
You keep away and delay;
When I act to close the gap
Fate says there is a bigger play.

Go Tell It On The Mountain

When I was a seeker
I sought both night and day,
I asked the Lord to help me,
And he showed me the way.

Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere,
Go tell it on the mountain,
Our Jesus Christ is born.

He made me a watchman
Upon a city wall,
And if I am a Christian,
I am the least of all.

Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere,
Go tell it on the mountain,
Our Jesus Christ is born.

Carol of the Bells

Carol of the Bells

Hark! how the bells 
Sweet silver bells 
All seem to say, 
“Throw cares away.” 
Christmas is here 
Bringing good cheer 
To young and old 
Meek and the bold

Ding, dong, ding, dong 
That is their song 
With joyful ring 
All caroling 
One seems to hear 
Words of good cheer 
From ev’rywhere 
Filling the air

Oh how they pound, 
Raising the sound, 
O’er hill and dale, 
Telling their tale, 
Gaily they ring 
While people sing 
Songs of good cheer 
Christmas is here 
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas 
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas

On, on they send 
On without end 
Their joyful tone 
To ev’ry home

Jingle Bell Rock

Jingle Bell Rock

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock 
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring 
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun 
Now the jingle hop has begun.

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock 
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time 
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square 
In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it’s the right time 
To rock the night away 
Jingle bell time is a swell time 
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh 
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet 
Jingle around the clock 
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet 
That’s the jingle bell, 
That’s the jingle bell, 
That’s the jingle bell rock.

Only God

Watching my hand;

God is moving it.

Hearing my voice;

God is speaking…

Walking from room to room —

No one here

but

only

God

Gifts of God

There are so many gifts
Still unopened from your birthday,
there are so many hand-crafted presents
that have been sent to you by God.
The Beloved does not mind repeating,
“Everything I have is also yours.”
