The reward and cost

You can choose eternity or the moment;
each has its reward, each has its cost

The exposed soul

Hide me in the mantle of your love
wrap me in your blessed darkness;
May my soul be exposed to none but you,
but to you, full exposition

Thunder flesh

Thunder crashed throughout the night
energy from the sky shook my bed
flesh felt energy’s tangible power

Train your thoughts

One thought can lie at your feet
the next thought, devour you

Train your thoughts
or they will train you

Role models

When you behold this vision of yourself, your heart will stir
and there is nothing better to do than to sit at the feet:
If the source is true, it will let you learn
and lift you lofty up

Those who refuse to change

Wisdom: Knowing the season

Sometimes death is easier than healing
Sometimes healing is easier than death
But careful: It’s not about what is easier
but what is the season

Counterfeit food

It promises to fill you,
but my love, you are eating stones
