Poems

Show me the road of change

|ynMShow me the road of change

Emblazoned by the lucid sun     of my awareness

Put my feet on the path

And put the sight and scent of victory     in my heart

Let flowers grow bright in the graves of all my wounds

Let the silence that sources my soul      penetrate    
and calm all clamor

Help me to soar on the wings of my primordial joy

With innocence as my ground

And imagination as my sky

Oh Shining One ~

Paint a new image    on my canvas of destiny

Paint the flowing waterfalls of my renewal

Paint the rainbow bouquets of surrender    I present

Day upon day     at my Master’s feet

Paint me breathing in the timeless presence of Life

Pure     visceral

Uncreated   and undestroyed

Paint me humbly on my Golden Path

Firm in the crystalline salvation of self-love

Deepening always, my faith and gratitude

Walking steadily,   I am, on the path of the Ancient future New Dimension dawning

Like wind    like cedar     Like celestial birds and angel’s trumpets

Like fire      like night      Like mystery and equality

Like salt     like shell       Like sands    like tides of time…

Entrusting my journey,   I am,     to the guiding stars of my heart,

Blossoming I am,   a ripening fruit on the tree of our One Sovereign Creator.

PRIMAL GRACE

Staring at the morning fire
Its dancing orange waves consume my mind
I see my conscience, my sincerity
offered to the Holy
like a platter of fruit, ripe and sweet

Penetrated by the blazing majesty
of this primordial force

I am emptied out
until I can only feel
the heat of my heart
in communion with the Great Architect
of this mysterious existence
we all clamor within

seeking the path to be illuminated
seeking to put respect in our footsteps
and carry the whole in our palms 
seeking to be warmed by inner benevolence
seeking to burn with divine conviction
seeking to be fearlessly fueled by the fire of our invincible spirits

seeking to submit our small minds
like wood
to feed the flames

of a higher light
a deeper heart
an ancient brightness
to warm our souls
that we may shine
as humble sparks of the sun
bowing to the power
of Grandfather Fire’s
winged orange song of creation

Arising into the Divine Descent

I saw Magdalena     standing atop the crescent Moon
A celestial waterfall of rainbow nectar descending through her body,
renewing her crystalline instrument with higher octaves 

Standing open & receptive      with flames in her palms
and a primal-galactic-gaian serpent rising through her womb
granting spiralling wings    
that sing a song of innocence
with a pulsing crown of star light    illuminating & amplifying
her secret eye    that hears & responds
to the voice of Hunab Ku’s cosmictimelove beaming through the Sun,   
calling the lotus of the Earth to bloom    and the core of its heart     
to inform the gentle steps of our epic human journey    
as we voyage through the waves of death & rebirth …

I saw the prismatic mandala of Magdalena,    alive
standing as a woman,
bowing in the soul

to the one supreme source
     in infinite     immaculate
surrender
To  
The Divine Game   &    Eternal School of Being

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GAIA MA

~ GAIA MA ~

Warm wings of your wind encircle me
Wholly and primal – I feel you…
Flowing windsnakes like rivers cleansing

In Your embrace I am liberated
as dense-mind-forms release back into spirit breath

Gaia-Ma You are the face of permanent change
You are the force of invincible movement
You are the Queen of Your Empire of Elements

Each of Your creatures with its precise yet thoughtless purpose
The monarch soars in its beauty above tall, swaying stalks of grass
The creek cascades in ever-renewing life force, offering its symphony of rushing joy
Your Sky hovers like a celestial canvas
Your flowers smile in innocent majesty
The Sun sings to You, Gaia-Ma,
as You dance around His Omnipotent Light in perfect spiral flight

With my feet on Your ground, I make contact with Your resounding immensity
I unite with my creature soul – at once fierce, calm, spontaneous, content, at home…
I submit as Your child to what is Real: Only Your Pulse Surging Through All

You are the Giver of All, Home to All, Mother of All
Queen of The Omnipresent Art of Self-Existing Nature

Your Ancient Paradise is our True Cathedral
Your Eternal Heart is our True Abode

You are calling to us to remember You
To open and receive You
To relinquish our mind-made agendas
And relish in the Living Wholeness of our Beingness
That You Are
That we are
in our deepest core

Gaia-Ma
Show us how to take refuge in You once again
Teach us to let Your vitality soothe our restless minds and our weary bodies

Oh Gaia-Ma
Help us to liberate our creature souls back into their nature
as Your empowered instruments of creative joy,
here to manifest
a life of victorious harmony for All

Bouquets of Love

For Jose Arguelles ~ Valum Votan

Solar 16, White Crystal Mirror, March 22, 2013
2 Year Anniversary of Votan’s Passage

Tears falling
like warm diamonds
into my open, empty palms

I sit,
resting before your photograph

meditating on the Sun
we’ve swam around 2 times
here on Timeship Earth

since you
left

this dimension
and arrived
everywhere…

I know
you
are
not

in your eyes anymore

I know you live within my heart,

and within her heart, and within his…

I know that you live within everyone that loves you -
maybe that’s how you exist everywhere now…

The Rainbow still glows its mighty protection

Your spirit’s light sings
in the candle
the copal
the feather 

the flute
the stone

Your love guides us still
like a pulsing beacon from the other side

We thank you – ever and all ways – 
for the gifts that still give
for the treasures we still have yet to unwrap…

Over time,
the Mystery marching
To the One Celestial Heartbeat

that brought you, awoke you, and took you Beyond

To the One Celestial Heartbeat
that synchronizes the Heart of the Mission
inside each one of us,
as together
we keep growing

and tending
to the seeds of life

from the Holy Garden you planted

Each of us
like innocent sunflowers

facing towards the Light
basking in the rays
of the Sixth Sun’s Song

Praising
you

with
our
tiny
yet
vast

bouquets
of
shimming
gratitude

petals
like
diamonds

filling
our
hands

with
humble
yet
proud
offerings

Ah Yum Hunab Ku Evam Maya E Ma Ho!

Flower of my life

Image

Each new day
is a petal on the flower of my life

Growing, I Am
in the soil of Divine Earth

Illuminated, I Am
by the Eternal Father’s Sun

Nourished, I Am
by the Infinite Mother’s Streams of Mercy

Destined, my body’s rose is
to meet the Doorway of Death

Rejoicing, my Spirit’s petals are
to arrive one day in the Garden of Pure Light
liberated beyond color, scent and form
to bloom into a shimmering dewdrop
adorning Creator’s Celestial Bouquet of Being

Until that sacred breathless moment,
I inhale,
invoking Gratitude
for the myriad elements that sustain my thriving

Smiling as a humble lily in the field of this precious Earth
dancing and dreaming through my days
as we ever-spiral, round the Great Central Sun…

All of us but innocent daisies,
Children in an evolving Galactic Fairy Tale
Learning to care for the One Garden of Life

 

ALIVE


The immensity of the Earth resounds

Can we touch it with our minds?
Can we reach the Sky through our hearts?
Can our bare feet
Sink to the planet’s crystal core?

Alive
We are
Tiny hands

Yet vast powers
Of imagination to create with…

As She spins in space, holding us,
Does Earth feel the electrifying winds of our dreams?
Does Earth sense the swirling storms of our fears?

Does the Cosmos hear
The colors of our human longings?

Our painted webs of confusion?
Our solar flares of brilliance?

Does our cacophony of culture
create the dreamscape of this world?

Or is the chaotic music of our fears and hearts
but a response to this boundless mystery we drift within?

What are the True Limits of this Universal Game we are all playing?
What Laws of Life run this Grand Show?

We all know the ancient truths
Of Death & Birth & Sun & Moon

But what force chooses the identities we play-
Soldier, healer, merchant, mother?

What is the Source of the vibrations
that compose the forms we inhabit -
the disguises we wear?

What is the origin
Of the light burning in the stars
And the passion sounding in our souls?

Is the immensity of Earth
Reflected
In the endless potential

Of our humanity?

Is Her diversity alive
In our sufferings
And our glories?

As She
Speaks to us
In waves
Of heat
And
Quakes
And
Floods -

How do we reply
With our
Hands

And
Hearts

And
Minds?

How do we enact
The art of our culture

To confront the poisons
And apply the medicines
Of these
Breaking Times?

How do we summon
The fierce wisdom of our Ancestors

And the spiritual will of Generations Beyond Us
To meet us Now -
In the cauldron of our hearts

To guide our way together,
In this moment of Planetary Prophecy

Ever-nearing the Threshold’s crossing…
?

Alive
We are
Tiny hands

Yet vast powers
Of Love to create with

Be The Rainbow

~ This Poem is for Valum Votan-Jose Arguelles,
who is now on the other side of the veil ~

Be The Rainbow

Riding on a dragon’s back you came,
soaring in to our dreams
enchanted gifts from the one true wizard you gave to us
shields and swords made of cosmic gold,
ancient like the breath of stones

“Look here,” you pointed, inside our heart-caves
“Look deep,” you urged,
“See the Moon’s voice painting pictures of light,
“See the Sun’s call beckoning you to stand straight and tall,
Receive the blessings of the talking Stars
mapping the cycles of your galactic voyage,

Commune with the antennas of the Trees,
Receive the Earth’s crystalline pulse,
Be as one with her evolutionary force,
Synchronizing your heroic mission…”

With celestial wings made of pyramids,
you flew to the One True Center,
you opened the shimmering gates of Tulan,
and pointed to the Guardians of Cosmic Night
“Feed them with your surrender,” you sang
“Praise them with the violet petals of your mind’s heart.”

Deeper still, your feathers stretched,
with codes of rattlesnakes glowing upon their vastness
“To pass through,” you whispered with a smile,
“You must know the ripe moment
to offer your humble soul to the One World’s Soul…

To cross dimensions,
you must dissolve your little fears
into the One Dancing Ocean of Being…”

With a comet in your burning eyes you chanted:
“Only Harmony knows the True Time
Only Harmony knows the True Way
Only Harmony knows the True Self
Harmony is Atonement
Harmony is the Lord of the New Earth
Harmony is the Empress of the New Heavens
Harmony is the only key…”

Upon the blank canvas of our minds,
you showed us the Earth as a cosmic turtle
swimming in the mighty waves of timeless time
you showed us her destiny…

“Be the Rainbow,” you sang to us,
in melodies conjuring us to remember…

“Be the Rainbow,
and take company with the Angels
who protect our one Universe…

Be the Rainbow,
and sleep no more within this cosmic dream,
but Awaken as the Flower you are,
shining as a child in the Garden of Love

You raised your obsidian staff and declared:
“Be the Rainbow, We are One.
Be the Rainbow, We have won.
For the Battle of History
is only fought with the Light of Forgiveness
The Balance of Justice
is only brought with the Light of Compassion
The New Earth Chapter
is only written by the stars of your Heart
The New Human Culture
is only birthed through the wisdom of Planetary Art…

“Be the Rainbow
and Take Flight on the Wings of Now…
I am with you always,”
you closed with a bow.

The Rebirth of The Devadasi
(Devadasi : Servant of God dess)

~A Poem For The Vajrasa Temple Dance Ensemble~

Vajrasa Temple Dance Ensemble

Flying………….
     fluid wings of water………….
framed by flames
     She graced the Earth
With her celestial aura of flowers
     A halo of beauty from an ancient above
          Sent from
                   The Temple
                                Of the Sky
                                              Dancer
Igniting Remembrance

Rock hard wrath of Thunder
     Flashing for us all to feel
          The immutable power
of true Feminine

Lightning-fire
Burning in self-delight
of its form
unfolding

Moving in supernatural rapids
Emenating   myriad   prismatic  crystalline
Transmissions

Yet infinite stillness abounding

Like a sacred mirage from the deep void
              a scene in-between worlds -
hide and seek of dimensions exposed

Displayed like a heavenly serpent
Sent to Reveal
Mysteries of the Source
of its undulating prowess

fractal spiral     
uniting stone on ground
     star in sky
Human channel to penetrate the veil

With 10 arms and 10 feet
They Danced
The 5 Dakinis
Into our mind-space

                   Casting a pure trance
Upon the stage of our imagination
Invoking our potential to heal

To redeem
To honor our internal sanctuaries

     Messengers calling
The nectar of holy submission
To arise in our souls

With a beckoning of mudras
     Eyes and bellies precise
Motions cut

              Like steps of a pyramid
Carving a holy path
For us to find ourselves

In Transcendental Union
               With The Devadasi ~
The Higher Dimensional Empress

Guiding us to dissolve our egos
     And set sail
Upon the One Spinning Mandalic Ocean…

Entering The Shambhallic Palace
Of Life’s Omnipresent Beauty

Sacred Questions I Ask Myself…

"Cosmic Question Mark" Photo from NASA Hubble Space Craft

“We must continuously keep in mind
that the world is a collective dream,
and that we are engaged
in dreaming a new world into being.”
-Jose Arguelles

How can we comprehend the vital role our imagination -
our dreaming capacities – our psyche – our consciousness- plays
in re-engineering our world and our global society to one of harmony?
How can we unify the powers of our imagination and our creative visionary longings for new frontiers, with concrete, grounded actions?

Can we understand these times of prophecy as asserting we are “Re-Turning”… ?
The course is changing…We are Remembering something forgotten…
Ancient hidden memories dawning… Self-knowledge emerging…

How can we unite the ancient indigenous roots of living wisdom, with the gifts of modern creativity and new insight? What is possible for human culture as we drop our allegiance to artificial technospheric “progress” and we re-sensitize to the Natural World?

What new levels are awakening inside of us as Nature’s cycles are now calling us out of our deep sleep of separation, fear, ignorance and greed and back into awareness of the interconnectedness of the Whole?

How can we remember our sacred place in this Universe
as instruments here to affirm and honor the gift of Life?
How can we be instruments of Harmony?
Where there is war, sowing seeds of peace…
Where there is fear, sowing seeds of light…
Where there is pain, sowing seeds of compassion….

How courageous are we really,
to let go of what we have known, to drop the script of history,
and be wholly available for new domains of planetary existence?

Sunset view from space

How authentically can we open to new positive possibilities?
How deeply can we believe in the beauty and power of our hearts?
How available can we be to the accelerating currents of evolution?

How calm can we be amidst the intensifying storms of changes and shakings, as we are invited ever-more deeply to meet the mystery of our existence, and each day more honestly confront the realities of how fragile and precious our lives are, and how tumultuously this moment hangs in the balance?

What does it mean to be Shifting World Ages?
What is happening to Earth in this transformation process?
Are all the abundant crises part of  “The Emergence?”
How can there be so much tragedy and beauty simultaneously?
Is it because All is being amplified?
Is it because as the prophecies say:
“All that has been Hidden is being Revealed” ?

It seems no accident all the turmoil and grace on our planetary scene is coinciding with epic Solar Flares that are mutating all life on Earth…
not to mention affecting our consciousness…
Chaos and Coherence Dancing to the Cosmic Symphony…

In this alignment with Galactic Center now taking place,
can we have the courage to open to the new vibrations arriving?
Can we open to a new dimension of reality that is not some utopian fantasy
but rather a grounded, embodied Heart Awakening?

How can we find wholeness in this fragmented modern culture so split off from Nature?
How can we transcend our obsession with our “little me’s” and put our energies into collaborating with the One family of Life? How can we earnestly keep growing that we may fulfill our missions in these crossroads times on Earth?

As Maya Ajq’ij Denise Barrios writes
in regards to December 21,
2012:

“Mother Earth – like the living being that she is – will elevate her spiritual condition. This is why humankind, as a manifestation of her evolutionary legacy, will be able to transcend to the next level. Sadly, we have continued to destroy our Mother Earth and have put our own evolutionary history at risk, just as the previous civilizations did when they reached this point. Notwithstanding, once again we have the opportunity to ascend to a higher level, and to perfect our spiritual evolution through Her.”

What does it mean to ALIGN with the Earth’s Shifting into a new world age?
How do we survive The Great Shaking? What if our heart knows much more clearly how to navigate these mysterious and dangerous times than our linear minds do?

What does wisdom look like – how does it act – how does it share itself?
How do art and wisdom intersect and synergize
and give birth to new joys and new blessings
that benefit the whole of life?

What does it mean to Honor the Earth as a Living Work of Art?
What does is mean to be Planetary Artists?
What IS Art?
Can we re-define “art” to where ALL people can be artists
with entirely distinct mediums of beauty and truth?

What IS Compassion in action?
How can we truly live in lucid recognition of our interconnectedness
with all beings and ALL MOMENTS?

Art by Atmara Rebecca Coe

How vastly can we imagine the possibilities of healthy human culture?
How vastly can we dream?
How effortlessly and gracefully can we awaken our human potential -
personally and planetarily?

How courageously can we support each other to Shine?

How humbly can we bow to our sacred equality?

How deeply can we honor our Living Earth home?
What role do our hearts have in restoring her sanctity?
What role do our hands have in mending her whole?

How at home can we feel in this Universe -
how can we KNOW our place in this galaxy?

Can we be both wise and innocent?
Free and disciplined?
Spontaneous and grounded?
Now-centered with long-term Vision?

Can we be the Feathered Serpent
uniting our primal earth bodies and our celestial spirit minds?

Can we transcend the cage of death-fear and meet our Spirits?

Can we allow the idea of “the end of the world” to die
and transform into a devotion to birthing the world alive, anew?

How can we confront the horrors – the violence – the corruption – the abuse
and ignorance with Divine Compassion and Divine Justice?

Can we feel the presence of those who came before us
who cut pathways on this Earth with their own feet and souls…?
Can we feel ourselves as living links
between our ancestors and those yet to come?

How many times has our Soul been on Earth?
Where else have we been? How vast is the Universe?

What is our “Galactic Responsibility?”

Can we transcend the mind-fears that bind us, haunt us, stress us
and shut down our self-love?
Can we replace our distortions of self-importance
with the realities of our true self worth?

Can we embrace the simplicity of Being
as its presence all ways breathes and smiles
underneath the clouds and veils of thinking…?

Can we meet the epic challenges
and rise to these Grand Times we are in
as a Beacon in the Night -
A Phoenix taking Flight…
?

I ask these sacred questions of myself,
and of you – as another myself…

May our Sincerity guide us to ever-evolve into our radiant altruistic nature,
Aryz
