Jesus Smiled

Jesus came back
after all of these years.
He lit up each face
and smiled.
"Weep no more,"
His smile said.
"Dry each others' tears.
God's love is born
in every child.
 
You can not lose it
and you can not refuse it.
You are made in God's image,
the light of the world.
Ease your judgments,
release your fears.
 
The peace you seek
lives within.
Never lost and always
right in your hand.
On the rock of God's command
you righteously stand.
 
Providing bounteous bread.
Leavened with love,
made for all to partake.
Granting eternal life
made possible
by the love we make.
 
Planting ability of mind.
To our vision's quest
our talents tend.
 
Healing all pain.
Allowing war to cease
and broken hearts to mend.
 
Bite your tongue and
dodge the bullets.
The Universe is complete
in a grain of sand.
All clichés
in time
come true.
 
Cast off all doubt, let it go.
Accept the love given freely to you.
Consider yourself in the know.
 
Within you shines light
from the very first star.
You are fated to find it.
You need not look far.

It matters not
whether you're aged or child,
safe in your home
or lost in the wild.
Love is who you are.
You need not know how.

Slow it down a bit.
You're not going any where.
There really is no "there" to go.
Only here and now.

This gift of God's Love
does not dwindle,
no matter the depths you fall
or hatred you kindle.
Never has Love known more.
More can not supplant All.
 
Nothing changes what I say.
You can bet your life on these stakes.
The universe was created perfect
and remains perfect that way.
God does not make mistakes"
 
And Jesus smiled,
"Every creature living
on this crust of Earth
is my body and blood.
Accept your salvation
with every breath.
Each day, joyful union,
birth following death.
 
I mind not any deed you've done
or judge any word you say.
Please indulge yourself
and practice this lesson today.
Play with others as if you were me.
 
Focus on wholeness,
and the love of one another.
Discover the thread that connects.
God's perfection shines the Truth
The whole of creation reflects.
 
Growth comes with every step we take,
and each thought passed by our mind.
 
How often have you thought
you have more than you need?
 
How often have you thought
it feels good to be kind?
 
How often have you thought
God wants you to succeed?
 
How often have you succeeded
in accepting what you find?
 
The past, a footprint in the dust.
The future, the fruit of our creed.
Here and now is eternal time
to harvest honey.
There is plenty for everyone
and many mouths to feed.
Does a child of God really need
lawyers, guns or money?
 
Hard lovers and easy riders too,
I wink a nod of approval to you.
It is your respect I wish to earn.
The same applies to all as to others,
Mohammad, the Buddha and I
breathe as brothers.
They have much to teach me
cause I have much to learn.
 
My message is simple.
You are loved for who you are,
not the illusions you sustain.
As it is written,
we are birthed Imago Dei.
You were created perfect
and perfect you remain.
 
Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, or Jew,
those who are not sure,
atheist and agnostic too.
With you I pray and play,
Sing poetry and practice meditation.
Manifesting a Universe safe and pure.
 
You can choose to criticize
or taste sweet discovery.
Perhaps division leads to decay,
and denying Our Love
makes pain endure.
God wishes you only good.
That is for sure."
 
And Jesus smiled,
"The future looks dim for bigotry
and those who spare no expense
on their greed.
Waging war, as sport or game,
may one day make you weep.
Do some men deserve
more than others?
Competition or cooperation,
which focus should we keep?
What reasons are there
to deny our brothers?
 
Truth does not separate
the treasures we have
from the abundance we think.
Eternal thought is pure,
peaceful waters run deep.
A satisfied man shares
his first and last drink.
 
Supplied for you all
are miraculous means
and your heart's beat
measures all ends.
You were born whole and complete.
Your body will return to dust
just like your family and friends.
I reach out my hand to you,
if it's a hand you need.
But as I told you before,
you are perfect just as you are,
you are grown from God's seed.
 
You are the air,
the land and sea.
You are the All to your very core.
You are beautiful as you are born
and remain so evermore."
 
And Jesus smiled,
"Have brave and original thought.
Be right here and right now,
alive in the moment.
Tread on fear.
Choose words that allow others heaven.
Reign in your soul,
storm in your brain.
Listen for music
that lightens your day.
 
Respect your body - perfect but temporary.
Truly a glorious temple
bones raised by spirit.
You are magnificent creatures
I'll tell you again and again.
You'll recognize my voice
every time you hear it,
and pass it on
every time you smile.
My message is always the same.
I wish for you all a lover's kiss.
Time now to relax a while."
 
"You are composed of that holiness
which blesses the stars into view.
 
The moon, like the sun too,
blooming bright or blue,
is born from the same essence as you.
Rolling with the sky
can consume all that you do.
 
Rhythmic rhymes sung with compassion
have no need to lie.
Your economy flourishes with your justice.
Material fortune founded on inequity
is withered and rotten.
Your worth is the love
you are willing to give.
Your debts, withholdings misbegotten.
 
Need does not reckon want.
Satisfaction is simple by deduction.
There is nothing in the past
you need to know.
You come alive
when choosing to
let God's Love within you grow.
 
Disease, like well being,
comes and goes,
ebbs and flows like all nature.
It can be strengthened
or diminished
by the will of the mind.
Our job is to heal one another.
Allow our tongues
to speak their passion.
Let guilt resign.
 
Dance righteously
when your feet find their stand.
Being Light in motion
is a blessing for every man.
 
Sleep under the stars at night.
Regard each other
with abundance in sight.
 
Live daily as if it were your last.
Remember each day
to forget the past.
 
Regard yourself well
and without separation.
The chain of love has no missing link.
We are all closer
than our mind can think.
 
The sum of All is One.
You can figure it out
by figuring the difference
between what you do
and what others should.
 
Do that which reveals joy.
Manifest wealth.
 
Do that which feels good.
Manifest health.
 
If you must resist a temptation,
resist the temptation to judge.
 
Instead of criticizing,
give others a loving nudge.
 
Let peace be your passion.
Make charity a priority.
Respect each other
with clarity and sobriety.
You will be rich, happy, wise
and never in the minority"
 
Jesus offered namaste
and smiled again,
"Take comfort in the knowledge
our hearts entwine forever more.
My blood runs through your veins.
I await for you on every shore.
 
Remember who you are and
mind not the lies you have been taught.
Think no fear and fear no thought.
 
God's Love is alive
every where you look.
The master key for all locks,
written in every book.
Let God guide your sight
and reveal inner wisdom
to allow all that you might.
 
Meditate on my words but
travel far beyond these lines.
I kiss your face gently
ever the sun shines.
In dark of night
I carry within you
ever lasting light.
 
Love's language composes you
and sings your song forever.
God knows all Ways
and is always
willing to deliver.
 
Sow a spiritual garden.
Tend to the seed.
Focus on ways
by which All is agreed.
The Universe appears as you perceive.
Let go of limitations,
God provides as you believe.
The Truth is yours for the seeing.
Give to others what you would receive.
God's Love is a present in every being."
