Bhakti, the path of devotion
and Love.
Some say it is the easiest way
To liberate your soul.
How do you know until You take the path?
To take the road,
All you have to do is
Declare your life to Love.

Stillness

Under the waves of emotion,
There is a deep place of stillness.
But to get here,
You must first be there.

Honor your emotions.
Feel them.
Know them.
See them.

Ride the waves.
Then leave the surface.
Dive down to the depths.
Into the darkness.

And remember
You are not emotion,
You are the stillness within.

You must be willing to fly,
If you want to dance with the Moon.
Open your heart.
Let Love shine in.

It is better to be a fool for Love,
Than to hide in the shadows of darkness.
Follow the brightness of Light,
Let your heart guide you to Truth.
Uncover the secret that was always there.
Revel in Oneness.

Ode to Hanuman

Jai Hanuman, peaceful warrior,
Son of Vayu, humble servant of Ram.
You are my sweet, sweet joy.
As I chant the glory of your name,
The dust is cleansed from my heart.
I am filled with devotion and love
As tears of bliss flow from my soul.

With curly hair, and a shining smile,
Beaming, beautiful and radiant,
You show up whenever there is need.
By your siddhis, miracles happen.
You burned down Lanka,
You touched the Sun.
With one leap, you crossed an ocean.
All the while, you act like it’s nothing.

You, by my side, is all that I need.
By your grace, I overcome Ravana.
My soul is liberated, my heart is pure.
You illuminate truth.
Anything is possible
The simple secret is faith.

Jai Hanuman, I call your name.
Victory to you, my sweet angel.
Give me strength. Give me courage.
Step into my heart and stay forever.
