One Song

In perfect accord
Never missing a beat,
not a downbeat nor upbeat,
not even a syncopated beat
or the one beat in between
all is in synch
feeling the beat
confidently walking the bassline
playing off the drumline
filling in the chords with keys, with
strings and more strings,
all that woodwind and brass,
listening for the melody found within.

ah, melodious sounds of joy,
wrap around me, rapture me and play on. . . . .
in bliss, may I find you now:
I am listening
I am writing
I am writing
I am listening
Making all things new, singing my one . . Song.

Princes and Princesses,
“We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams…”
Ode – A. O’Shaughnessy

Today is the day . . .

Today, I realize more of what Paul was talking about when he said that he wanted to do good but missing that mark was always with him, most especially while he found himself clothed in flesh.

http://biblehub.com/bsb/romans/7.htm

In his letter to the Romans Paul said:  We know that the Law is spiritual, but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin.

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do. And if I do what I do not desire, I admit that the Law is good. In that case, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh; for I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.   For I do not do the good I want to do. Instead, I keep on doing the evil I do not want to do.  And if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

So this is the principle I have discovered: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s Law.  But I see another law at work in my body, warring against the law of my mind and holding me captive to the law of sin that dwells within me. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord!


Today,

I know who I am
 I am who I know,
and now is the time,
my time is now to forgive
to know no man after the flesh

Colorful-Swirling-Vortex-8 Longings of My Heart

Colorful-Swirling-Vortex-8

                                                  
I long to be clothed in Spirit and in Truth
this is my desire
knowing I am that
I am at one for life
true life within, and indivisible
perceiving no separation

Shining true light  darkness is no more

My heart burns within me like liquid golden light,
burning in the furnace
Rivers of living water calm and cool me, temper me

Reshape – Reform
Refine
To make a good wife
a loving friend
To give to receive
a laugh a day
One day
Time and Space
With grace, mercy and righteous judgment
Today
To sit in stillness and hear myself say:
Children
Hear and understand
The LORD our God
the LORD is ONE
Love the L
ord with
One Heart
One Soul
One Strength
One MIND
and as you Love Yourself
that very same way
Love your neighbor for
It is finished
It is complete
the Kingdom of God
is
WITHIN

BIG LOVE

What did you say?

Fatherhood of God
Brotherhood of man
Life everlasting
God is One

Pretty simple, huh?

All mankind are made in the image of God. There isn’t anyone who isn’t aware that they are, they exist. They, you, and I may not know where, what, when…but we know we are.

Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.

And the first will be last and the last first.

Keep the statement above in mind if you choose to read on.

That is, I said that to say this:

True Christians who have the mind of Christ, in whom Christ is formed: The ones called to Love, do not get to choose who they love. They are instructed to Love all.

God is One

Love – Fatherhood of God

Love – Brotherhood of man

Love = Life Everlasting

Love as taught in the New Testament book of 1 Corinthians –

Bible > ESV > 1 Corinthians 13 ◄ 1 Corinthians 13 ► English Standard Version The Way of Love

. . 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned,a but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.

Love is complete, it is finished there is nothing to do now but learn how to exercise it, to explore, imagine, an endless exuberant infinite number of states of Being to experience and occupy until time is complete.

Therefore, I say go, play, learn, explore, be open to the infinite and be thankful within, build your perfect world within. Just watch quietly with a greatful heart.

Always easier said than done.

Here is a rhetorical question for you: if God is no respector of persons and has no favorites, then; why should we?

Brilliant !

This is so very brilliant that I had to share

William Blake writing to the “reader” of his poem Jerusalem says:

The Spirit of Jesus is continual forgiveness of Sin: he who
waits to be righteous before he enters into the Saviours kingdom,
the Divine Body; will never enter there. I am perhaps the most
sinful of men! I pretend not to holiness! yet I pretend to love,
to see, to converse with daily, as man with man, & the more to
have an interest in the Friend of Sinners. Therefore
[Dear] Reader, [forgive] what you do not
approve, & [love] me for this energetic exertion of my
talent.

Think about it,
The Spirit of Jesus is the continual forgiveness of sin; 
Therefore, forgive what you do not approve and love me.

MAGNIFICENT!!!

Imagine

When is the last time you used your imagination?

Just imagine, try it. smell it, taste it, feel it,
taste a lemon or chocolate.

See yourself taking a nice bath or shower.
Imagine your best friend and just hanging out with them . . .

How’d that make you feel?

JESUS –
Jesus, people were either praising Jesus or trying to kill Jesus, they still are, every day.

It is written:
For this reason, therefore, the Jews were seeking all the more to kill Him, because He not only was breaking the Sabbath but also was calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God. John 5 – 18:18

Are we not the very same with one another? Are we not the very same within our own selves? Imagine being equal with God. How would you use such a power? To what end? How would you walk? talk? and conduct yourself toward your fellow man?fear-not-for-i-am-with-you-be-not-dismayed-for-i-amd-your-god-i-will-strengthen-you-yes-i-will-help-you

THE BATTLE
This I have in the past learned the hard way.

My heart has been aching for years and years now. Finally, I am on the mend, truly I am.

All too literally, I have put my heart in another man’s hands. I’ve had enough heart surgery on the outside for three people at least. Now, it’s time for surgery on the inside. My chest has been sawed in two and wired back together, heart has been stopped and started, it’s arteries blockages have been spliced, and rearranged to assist with the flow of life.

This I have learned the hard way. Our weapons for winning the war on fear and doubt are within us. Everything we need is within. Christ the hope of glory is within you! Christ in you is so close that you can not nor will you ever be separate.

Watch what conversations, judgments, loving and unloving thoughts you dwell on.
Take time to think about what you are thinking about.

Hmmmm, What are you thinking about when you are not thinking about what you think about? ? ?

Truly God is One and All in All – Love and wisdom, faith, grace, and truth, forgiveness and all good things or doubt and fear, pride and greed, it is all inside of you, every last jot and tittle. We are held accountable for every imagination of our hearts. The most power, the greatest responsibility we will ever have is the power to choose. Choose wisely, choose nobly, choose lovingly.

Like tiny seeds, your inward imaginations are the seeds and fruit of your heart and they will yield fruit after their own kind. Reaping a harvest of what you have sown in the garden of your mind. We all reap what we sow, it is the law of an identical harvest, and that law will never pass away. Look within and monitor your thoughts and inner conversations. Speak to one another in psalms and hymns and songs making melody in your heart to the LORD, to whom you belong. Be thankful.

Change the inside, and you will witness that change on the outside.

But . . . you knew that. Be encouraged in the knowledge that “God” is for you and not against you. All good things are given richly to be enjoyed.

BIG LOVE,
lil’ gini

Poem for Today

Colorful-Swirling-Vortex-8.png

Doesn’t Mean Anything

And it doesn’t mean anything
Hear children, what you hear
I sit and hear the fan whirling
The narrator narrating
The birds in the trees
Brings me to my knees
And it doesn’t mean anything
These are but echoes of things that have been
I’ve been here
I’ve been there
I’ve been just about everywhere
And it doesn’t mean anything
I feel cold
I feel warm
My heart beats on
The days grow long
And the earth still turns just the same
And really, really,
It doesn’t mean anything
Light, Love, and Life goes on and on
Darkness, chaos, death,  shadows
Of what has been, it was, it is, it comes to pass.

What will be, well . . .

That’s up to you?

Us?

Them?

Oh wait! That’s me.

And it doesn’t mean anything . . .
