THE GREAT GODDESS MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD

Finally
your energies, power and might rise
from the still life water
of your spirit

You have, to me, been gone
millions of years
suppression, destruction, ignorance and neglect
have taught man little so far

Millennium after millennium
era after era
violently driven from temple and church
your enigma continued its mysterious labor
uninterruptable
in the collectively subconscious spirit of man
who externally passionately desired
that you never existed

You come to save us
from an amputated life.
As Anima of World Soul
in the split inner life of us all
and I know that many,
touched by the hand of the Redeemeress,
will be shaken to their core

You have returned,
my Love, for once and for all
You consider the time right for transformation,
remind man drastically of
the easier way of less blood.

You bring BALANCE and finally all is right

                          TOWARD NEW HARMONY AMONG RELIGIONS

I Am Divine Love
in the core of
all religions and all times
Am I
endless in shapes
I remain the same
in Myself
One and indivisible

There, invisibly,
I create Myself
from Myself
and become
many rituals
silent meditation prayers and
effortful healing.
Each in its own time

Numerous faces
Am I.
Woman and man
as sages and seers
prophets and priests
Am I.
Numerous faces
Still yet One.
One pair of eyes
One pair of ears
One nose one mouth
Am I …

Be joyfull, then still
Zen
Know that I am Religion

HEALING

In my Mystical Heart
I heal from torn worlds
allowing rusty thinking
to be free in
a purifying breath

Finally, Oneness
can sing the praise of Love
in miraculously embodied gestures,
I come home in my empty face

One day, all this unsuspected
Morning Glory will show her greatest
Love to all
that turns to inside itself.

THERE IS SO MUCH…

There is so much
Love moved freely in
receptiveness

Void spaces
spread it Always-Again in
all-embracing Bliss

Spellbound is everyone who
is touched and panting in the
unknown Love of the Spirit

VAST EMPTINESS

Breathlessly
I disappear in the Silence of silence
the Silence of all times
timelessly
I dissolve
in the unknown Known

Only Spirit now
pure Being
my body is no more
neither my soul
I know no more

Only Spirit am I
eternal enclosure of all Being
eternal Being in eternal "sleep"
"sleeps" the Silence of all time
until endless ends

I am not dead.
I exist not.
Just briefly.
Soon will awaken
time and space
and I too will be
new life...
Timeless on Earth

OCEAN OF LOVE

Submerged
in total Love
in immeasurable Bliss
I do not even know my Source anymore
Am I
The Bottomless IS

MIRACLE

A miracle shimmers remarkably "empty"
in the Source/freely passes
islands of particle atoms/overwhelms
earthly material self-consciously/splits
rationality effortlessly to shadowdom

The Miracle rises Naturally in full glory...!

PEACE

Endless Peace I feel
Brahman - Peace for Me
purest Spirit 
mists my Being and
I know
that I will not know anymore 
through You

EMBRACE

One Embrace
is enough
only one Embrace is enough
to love You
forever

I understand.
My heart is full of Joy.
Nothing
has to be said
anymore

There
is only Love
and I close my eyes in You
forever

INNER PEACE

Peace laughs undivided
in my dearest Heart
whoever I am
whatever I do
open chords waltz with life

Peace dances jubilantly
with each other
sings everyone's glistening in
their own eyes

VENUS

I saw Your face
with
a glance of gold in the morning
and 
I saw Your face
with
a glance of silver in the evening
for You are
the morning and evening star
called Venus

Rising of the inner waters
You are born in Your own Shell
with a glance of gold in Your right eye
and a glance of silver in Your left
for You are
the morning and evening star
called Venus

Heaven and nature
are Your kingdom
You conquered all
peace stays and everything is
for You are the morning and evening star
called VENUS

ATHENA

Pallas Athena
Pallas 
Great Goddess of
Wisdom, Science,
Reflection and Art
leads every soul
grants each Her favors

Oh, She knows about pain,
about ignorance and all
which makes hearts ache
about humankind's endless wait

Yes, She knows people
this Goddess,
with the wisdom of an owl and
the eyes of a snake She
easily sees through any illusion
disarms any conflict

She, Mistress of the eternal fields
where universal laws rule,
teaches humankind
in Divine knowledge,
for love-filled Self-Knowledge

BODHISATTVA OF LOVE

May Divine Love

May Mysticism embrace

May great spiritual traditions
enclose life forever

                       DUTCH HADEWIJCH: MYSTIC OF LOVE


In Divine Love
submerged
meets my heart
The Heart of hearts
full of aches
that remove my spirit
commandingly speaks:
I have always been

I cannot work
nor pray in churches
write, nor speak or preach
can I because

In Divine Love
submerged
meets my heart
The Heart of hearts in
ONE overwhelming heartbeat
ONE surprising heart pulsation
ONE heart-rending battlefield

I cannot work
nor pray in churches
write, nor speak or preach
can I because

In Divine Love
submerged
meets my heart
The Heart of hearts
now eternally One
in Love without aches

                       DERVISH DANCERS OF WHIRLING LOVE

A white dancer of Love 
I am
a true Lover of Allah-Allah-Allah
The only beat in my heart
The only need in my soul
The one and only start

A whirling whirling Mevlevi
I am 
a turning turning Tevellu
for
wherever I turn and whirl 
I see the face of God
like mystics do

A bowing head 
I am
an enchanting beauty
whirling turning in trance
till The sweetest sensation
The Divine Embrace
kisses me with everlasting grace

A white dancer of Love 
I am 
a true Lover of Allah
The only beat in my heart
The only need in my soul
The one and only start

                       BLISS AND HEALTH
 


Bliss is total Positivity
in body, soul and spirit

pain, suffering and evil
are only “half-truths"
that we consider reality

THIS, THEY ARE NOT!

They are not
the Complete and Absolut
Reality.

The only thing real is Bliss
The only thing real is Health
The only thing real is Love

May we all
learn to live
based on this sheer
Absolut State of Bliss Consciousness

                       BIO-INDUSTRY


Animals.
They are my worthy fellow creatures
on an immortal planet.
Hallowed energy forms and
dearest Creatures of God Himself,
they live knowingly in me.

                       A SINGLE WORD


To experience the Eternal
in transitory state,
respite in tightness of the heart,
offers space to limitness.

THERE IS SO MUCH


There is so much
LOVE moving freely
in receptiveness

Spaceless Spaces
spread It constantly in
All-Encompassing Bliss

Well-charmed are all that
are touched and left gasping
in the Being’s unknown
LOVE

All in Love
for Thee
All in surrender
to Thee
All in wisdom
for Thee
because
Thou art my Source

UNIVERSE - HEART




Heart of Hearts
Foundation of All
such high Love
for the Universe

Heart of Hearts
All over
In and around all,
my head bows on its own
Love shines through me

Heart of Hearts
in Love One,
comes closer
in Closeness
Eternal Relief

One Breath
One Heartbeat
One Heaven
One Earth

One Spirit

BREATH OF LIGHT


 

Breath of Light,
beautiful Life Line,
Am I in the Silence of Silence
of my Being

Breath of Light
steadily leads radiant streams
through my expansive Body
in weightless weight

Who Am I?
What do I discern in Immensity?

A Cosmic Body of
winged atom Reality.
One enormous Breath
in soft Endlessness.
