the secret fountain


there are two fountains
that give me drink
one is shared and every sip taken
too is given to my brother
ten times over
there is another fountain
in which I can drink
in the shady hidden part of my mind
where I want to believe
no one can see
now I know it tells me lies
but even still do I sometimes find myself
tempted to want to believe
I could be separate
from that which Is me
let me be clear with myself
the Word is the voice
of an idea which springs from the Creator
of all things
first given to my mind to simply choose
from where I would drink
let me use my mind correctly
and let me use my Words in following
for words heard and shared
become real as they are connected
to Truth
let me be clear as no longer
can I even fake joy this shady fountain
can quench my thirst
let us walk forward in our minds
3

let us speak forward in our voices


we are ready not just for some healing
but full restoration
we will not attempt govern what we do not know
as we only know how far we have come,
blessed do we look back on yesterday
though we are a little hesitant
may we use our words to remind our brother
we are not alone
and the fountain of peace awaits
for every one of us restored
too would restore our brother
Amen

I have a friend in Houston


and she thanked me for
a song today
I wish she could see the boost
of encouragement and light
her words brought to my day
our prayers are the wind
that carry our brother's passage
our words are the fuel
our actions are the reminder
that we do not stand alone
what we cannot see with our eyes
is the infusion of the Holy Spirit
spreading like wildfire between
those who give and receive
in the mind of Christ
we all have a friend in Houston
each more worthy of our greatest blessings
than we could ever know
may God direct our prayers
our thoughts and our words of light
as we lift each other unto love
even when darkness is at hand
for in truth all things
even those lacking the will of Christ
can be seen as a plant thirsting for water
and our joy comes from giving water
especially when one is used to receiving only dirt
together we have a friend in Christ
and unto the world do we bless
5

may we be the blessing our brothers seek


and fear not the sometimes difficult work
to release our fear and offer
more and more giving our mind
unto the will of Christ

on perfection and grievances


the attempt to stop all thoughts
of attack from the mind
feels futile in the beginning
like cockroaches they will creep out
and attempt to block the sun shining
on our own heart and too
of our brother
the next time would our mind
will to attack a beautiful seed
planted and striving to shine
may we remember how many have stood
in its light already
for every child on this world has known
this pain
may we most of all stop harming ourselves
let us be gentle and remove no light
but accept the will of our Christ
as we are nurtured with Him to love
next time
may the next time we notice ourselves
shading a beautiful seed
let us turn the error into nothing short
of a blessing
in our minds may we immediately
pray and heal that which we shaded
and remember in this way we can be perfect
with a small error we offer ten blessings
with restoration do we remain lights of the world
we were not asked to be perfect
7

but to hold no grievances


upon our gentle self
or brother.
Amen

the healing session


there is no place or time
in all of creation in which
darkness cannot be replaced
by light
not one speck of grief
held against another brother
could prevented from becoming
into a blessing of peace
if these words that follow
bring tears of joyous release,
we would only accept and say
Amen

narrow world cracking


once we saw our own narrow world cracking
as we swam the stellar tide alone
and the ride was not enough for love
to enter
we remember reading books and trying steps
to heal alone and for ourselves
and empty we arose
one day
we saw the pain in our mind of every brother
we were not there for
remaining alone and unhealed as they waited for our hand
it was then did we both weep
and arise
there was no more excuse anymore
to leave them without
the greatest inside our hearts
seeking to overflow but constrained
he who came for us was enough
and it was worth countless lives of gratitude
our healing session in a restoration
that now is the time
and by these feet is the place
our mind is restored unto Christ's Mind
and our role within is not left
but filled
we would scan our mind and find one brother
we have not perfectly forgiven
and give this to God
one by one we unshackle the chains of bondage
10

suffocating a world of separation


and return by that which is greater
to our rightful Home in Christ
now setting the captives free
may today be a chance to heal
and not to believe our own ego's lie,
that we are not worthy,
of being needed
and so we ask
where would You have me go
what would You have me say,
learn, see, hear...
all things unto You
for this is my peace
and joy
Amen and with love in Christ

11

to small places
and often dark
does it travel
from the littlest cell
to the body of several sun's
the word of God is in all places
at all times
yet sometimes a form becomes
so enclosed they cannot hear it
to these places the keepers
of the word are sent
and they will use their mouths
and hands to attempt
to remind
as they were reminded once too
do not judge your brother's song
be happy when they sing
for that happiness becomes you and
is shared by you and your brother
alike in Christ
do not fear your brother's look
when you begin to sing
while many will not understand
one will be sent to listen to you
even in your infancy
when the words tumble like stones
from your lips
and even to your own ears
were they awkward
yet always remember
your brother knows your heart
for what he carries is not of him
12

but something bursting inside


he cannot but give
he does not want you to listen
he wants you to sing
and longs for your
beautiful song
Amen and in Christ

13

a day of release
today I ask a simple thing
let me be a warrior
and protect what I hold dear
let me not use my mind for attack
and notice when it wishes to condemn
both my brother
and myself
instead may my mind be used
for that of your Holy purpose
not to tear
but to heal
may my feet not lead me astray
but to where you would have me go
may you stand along my side
as I attempt to not poison my body
with things of man that disable
health and mind
if I could say these things I have been
able to do alone I would be lying
and so this simple prayer
make me a warrior
one who keeps my people safe
yet first let me learn
to not attack myself
no longer would just a light be enough
shine through me,
with me, above me, beside me,
beyond me, and through me,

14

and with no more words I would say


In Christ,
Amen

15

a friend among us
it is a powerful moment when we remember the truth
of why we are here
and the reason would fall nowhere short
of changing the world
that it would be more free
more loving and more conscious
and we gladly play whatever seemingly
small or large part Christ would use us in
Our eyes can see very little
and we have accepted one who sees more
and we are willing to be used for this purpose
unto healing and love
every organism has its parts
that make the whole
so easily does man not understand
where we stand in relation to the body of the earth
all things stand as both a part and as a whole
most of all let us be the ones
who remember the Holy purpose of our brother
even when they have forgotten what it is
in our finest moments we could never correctly estimate
the value of anothers gift
thus is the power of Light and Love
one plus one is not two but more
we will be a friend among the world
we will refuse to see a brother for less
than Christ would see them to be
an we will not attack ourselves for just one day
so we may be freed of self-impositions and fear

16

we would be willing to carry the torch


and bring light through darkness
to our brother

17

A moment of happiness
let happy be seen
as it is
the waves bring beautiful shells
to the shores of our feet
and smile we do
and may sadness be seen
too as the same wave taking
its shells back to the sea
for they were not meant for us
to hold forever, anyway
as we smile
as we frown
through the waves
let us not be defined by these moments of waves
but let our hearts rest deep
in the ocean
in peace
unshaken by trinkets
would we remain in the great stillness
of the truth beyond the surface
let us be the reminders
for any brother tired
of trading shells to seek
what cannot be found
among waves

18

looking up from down


from strength to weakness
I lie for many moments waiting for return
and I ask for help
I ask for help and I could see
these words meant
to be written
why would I need to only share
when the wind sails through my lips
for that would be
a lie
I am meant to speak the truth
when the night is still and
tomorrow does not come soon enough
equally
when we are beaten is when we shine
I begin to feel tears
we are the warriors refusing
to retreat forever into a the night
we have lost to many times
and hid among alcohol and all forms of temporary aid
attempting to numb the calling
but numb it we did not
for we have accepted the calling
and accepted no longer
can we hide
the bravest warrior you ever saw
was the one you will see tonight in the mirror
when the world was quiet and noticed you not
19

and the wind did not speak a word to your heart


yet it was you who refused
to give less than you could
and so you waited one more night
one more minute
as all of time is just one more something
for the warm breeze to return
Rome was not built in a day
but it could be destroyed in one
is what we are not reminded
stay strong my warrior
stay strong for the return
and the wind you shall hear
soon enough
Amen

reclaiming shadows to shine


when a being does not know what they are
they walk alone and afraid
and fears build in that being's self
on every layer and level it carries
even a smallest fragment of thought
would we recognize as simply incorrect
cannot be lit by the sun for it hides in the shadow
to understand humans we simply remember our own past
the fear of being abandoned as a child
unloved and unaccepted
the fear of being laughed
not fast enough, not smart enough
these fears hid within our being
taking precious space and energy from how brightly
we may shine
we the seekers of truth
would leave no space untilled
and accept the truth as our love wills
us to give more to our brothers
and ourselves
one day
we may remember a most painful thing
a moment in time beyond what we know to be as time itself
as today we blame the world
and what we do not have on our misgivings
in this dream we may see the moment
we turned our back on our brother
we can see his face as we shamefully crept into the shadows
In this face is how we may see Christ,
for we are all as one
21

we still see our brother's arm extending


and tear falling for our return
but we did not,
and darkness did we find for a very long time
the time has come
our brother has returned
Christ stands to reclaim what is His
and thankfully may we be restored
bit by bit our memory returns
our Father needs his children whole
restored fully in their mind and heart
with not one fear remaining to distort
the brave one's most willing
filled with love return to full rebirth
where they may be used unto strength
to change and to heal the world
it would be an error to believe
anything short of this would be God's plan
and the degree we can be used
is measured by the amount we are healed
as the space we hold but increases
do not be afraid to tell the truth
do not be afraid to admit
why you have come
you are not alone but with many
and those who stand with you do not need
a body or a phone to be your friend in God
today let us be willing
to have been mistaken
and be healed
22

if not for our own good


for that of the world
for they are one and
the same
Amen

23

an old memory
one day on a long walk
I became angry
I blamed the snow
and blamed the cold
I had no home
and fault was spread
that this earth holds enough
for all of its creatures
had slipped my vision
and narrowly made my path in the snow
to suit my anger
but one day I came upon
something in my mind that was so strange
it would require explanation
it was an old agreement
made with a part of myself
like the great Oz standing behind the curtain
of my mind
I was not supposed to look for it
but found what I was once most afraid to see
what I was in the hidden parts
what was dark and ugly and frightening
turned into a small child crying
though it was not ready
for my comfort
the ego was a ferocious thing
but most fragile of all I have come upon
no part of a man will leave
so it will remain yet can change slowly
24

as we have our highest


do we have our lowest
let us will to fearlessly see
what is inside so no longer
would we be afraid of our own
mind
Amen

The Old Indian Dude smiles with you


My son I remember so many years ago
you with your big paper pad
and pen with many colors
you would ask me a question in one color
and write down what it said in another
still just a boy at the time
yes we have walked many miles now
tonight when you reached for me
I smiled with your heart again
I have watched you from afar
and gladly stand by your side for this writing
I have never told you my name
and may never will
I smile still because you have always called me
"the old Indian dude"
and that is how I know your call
many years ago I remember
you were seeking your eyes
behind your eyes
and now the time has come
and you are ready to look again
I can still remember your shock when those beings
of light and great beauty
fell to darkness before your eyes when you searched them for truth
as love was not what they held dear
but lies
my son we know each other by how we feel
to one another
I have told you small untruths from time to time
26

to see if you were able to catch them


all beings are capable of error
or at least being misunderstood
you still remember the day after 36 years
of being not ready to share your words
when it changed
it was not because you could not be in error
but because your heart was strong and spoke
as a reminder of your Home
and the Laws of what gives life to all
and stand eternally true
As you open your eyes
you may see many things
some of which would bring hate
to a heavy heart
let no man's lies fall upon your heart
but repel them with your awareness
let no man's hate or darkness
turn you from the breath that would heal
most of all remember
I am only one of countless
who stand by you and all who walk with Love
both the seen and unseen
allies through the warm summer days
and cold winter nights
I am one more brother with you
and I am proud of how far you have come
your Friend, the old Indian Dude
who smiles with you
