Thoughts on Forgiveness


Unless the
perpetrator
of harm
seeks forgiveness
no amount of praying
for that person
will avail


Reciprocal
forgiveness
lies at the heart
of
global change


Forgiveness can move
us past millennia of
criminality
corruption
and war


Forgiveness was the
essential "crime" for
which Jesus was executed
He insisted he could
do good and forgive
without reliance
on priests and tradition
He insisted that
we can do the same


Who is that seeking us from deep inside


Who is that seeking us from deep inside 
What is that voice within 
A prayer suggests we can know 
We ask and then an answer comes

The one who seeks us is our higher self 
connected to the very ground of being
We need but ask and we will find 
goodness 
mercy 
within us 

Who is that seeking us from deep inside
The voice of a companion 
who will see us through

Let truth and beauty live in me


Reality known
and unknown
I celebrate
all creation
Thankful that
I am made free
Let truth and beauty
live in me

There's no right way for everyone


There's no right way 
for everyone 
But there's one way 
that works for all 
When goodness is the goal 
the battle's won 
Your choices see 
that it is done
